This past Friday, Jonathan and I decided to just cliche it up by having a dinner and a movie date, something we rarely ever do. I was really craving a burger, and without even knowing this fact, J suggested that we check out Flip Burger at the Summit.
I went with the Butcher’s Cut (above, forgive the blurry photo…it was somewhat fancy inside, and I felt sort of like a goofball snapping photos), which consisted of steak (cooked medium), red wine jam, blue cheese, caramelized onions, scallions, and frisee (the grass on top). It was so delicious! The steak was cooked perfectly, and the flavors all blended so well. I’m finding that I really like the stank of some blue cheese 🙂
Jonathan had the Ossobuco, with veal, gremolata mayo, braised ketchup and crispy fried onions.
Ah, MUCH better photography skillz. I had a tiny bite (I don’t do mayo, and honestly, veal creeps me out), and it was pretty tasty as well. Jonathan gave a a grunt of approval between bites.
We also shared an order of vodka-battered onion rings.
They were good, but still a little greasy. I mean, not for onion rings, but they were too greasy in that I haven’t really eaten this kind of stuff in forever.
For the movie part of our date, we went to see The Adjustment Bureau.
It was meh.
Honestly, I just kept thinking about how silly a lot of it seemed. It wasn’t terrible, but I feel like it could’ve been so much better. It had a great idea—fate, chance, free will. It was based on a short story by Phillip K. Dick (Blade Runner), and you could totally tell. That being said, some things just don’t translate well to the big screen.
My weekend was pretty uneventful, other than our “big night out” (we’re such old people). Saturday it rained all. damn. day, so I celebrated with pajama pants, Netflix, and a breakfast of scrambled eggs, biscuits, gravy, potatoes with onions and peppers, and veggie sausage. Perfection!
Sunday I got a lot done in my room and met up with an old friend for some drinks and fun chat catch-up time. Basically, a great weekend. I’m never happy to see Monday come, but my nice weekend high lessened the blow.
What is your favorite way to spend a lazy, rainy Saturday?
