Today for lunch, Mazy and I went to Americana restaurant in downtown Des Moines. It was so good. It's always so good. Eating there is like experiencing the food you see on cooking competitions... Really bold, unusual flavor combinations. Fresh ingredients. Interesting seasonal options. It was good. I'll let Mazy tell you all about his meal in his latest blog post that he cleverly titled, "Just Add an 'A' to American" (I see a future in writing for this one!) but I took a photo of my meal to show you:
It was one of the day's specials: blackened tilapia sandwich with coleslaw, red onions and grilled tomatoes. So good! And I picked the tahini vegetables as a side dish. They were amazing!!! Tahini is a Middle Eastern sauce -- the color and consistency of runny peanut butter. I believe it's made from sesame seeds. The vegetables -- broccoli, carrots and pea pods -- were just barely cooked and served cold with the tahini dressing drizzled on top and sprinkled with black sesame seeds.Really flavorful!
Mazy's Bacon Burger... It looked really good...
That's all from me. And the last post I write as a 35 year old! Tomorrow I'll have to change my blog description to reflect my new age... Have a great weekend, everyone!
