No true Meal Plan Monday this week. And probably not another one for the next three weeks...
I'm just testing your patience.
Uh...remember when I'm leaving tomorrow!? The apartment is somewhat destroyed...the packing not exactly started...and the laundry is begging to be washed...Don't worry though. It will all get done. Just as soon as I tell you about a few of the places I plan on eating this week.
We've been over this before. I like to do a ridiculous amount of research before trips to plan out where we will be chowing down. And even though we are going to try and limit our meals eaten out on this trip, I've still done some significant research.
Ready to see a few?
Last night I made this Southwestern Soy Chorizo (that I'll be sharing with you soon) to take with us on the road...but seeing as though we have absolutely no food in our apartment, this will probably become dinner tonight. There may be a few olives in the refrigerator as well. Maybe even a bottle of dijon mustard. Sounds like the perfect combination. Right?
tuesday: Philadelphia, PA
The first show will be in Philadelphia on Tuesday! They are playing at this place and apparently it has some pretty delicious sushi. Yes please. I was also given a few suggestions from a reader for places to dine in Philly so we will probably have to hit those during the second show in Philly! Yum.
wednesday: Johnson City, TNCafe Lola looks like a cozy little French/American bistro, Cootie Brown's seems like an area staple with "Real Food", and I've heard the Mellow Mushroom has some ridiculous pizza (and I'm in love with their website). Unfortunately we probably won't be visiting all three. But at least we have options!
thursday: Chattanooga, TN
Have I told you how much I love a good breakfast place? Places like The Friendly Toast make my heart go wild. And apparently Chattanooga has one of their own called the Bluegrass Grill which will be a definite stop on our trip. Also in Chattanooga we've got a Tex-Mex favorite, Mojo Burrito with local produce, meat, and art. Perfect. As well as Niedlov's Breadworks, a bakery that prides itself on not taking shortcuts to create great breads. Something that we all know I'm a huge fan of.
And finally a few more things...
1) Guest posts are going to start popping up in the next few days! Woohoo! So, keep an eye out for them!
2) I'm going to try and post updates regularly so keep an eye out for those too! If you don't see one every couple of days send me a scolding comment and I promise I'll get on it.
