Flavor of the Week: The Perfect Meal

Happy Friday!!! I am not sure what I am going to do with myself this weekend! Nolan is going on a guy camping trip with my brother and some friends so for the first time EVER I have the whole place to myself for 3 days.

This week’s favorite flavor of the week is actually a whole meal. Yea, I just couldn’t narrow it down anymore than that because there were so many fantastic flavors that came together to create the perfect meal.

This week Nolan and I spent our date night at my favorite restaurant, John Harvard’s!  Don’t get me wrong, I am always down to go there, but I was particularly persuaded because it was a gorgeous day out and they are one of the only restaurants around with a patio.

I started off with a glass of their Golden Spike IPA. It really hit the spot!

We typically don’t order appetizers unless we are starving or have a gift card, but their appetizer special was fried pickles which is our new obsession so we just had to try them!

After a  lengthy discussion, we came to the conclusion that they were fantastic, but not as good as the ones at the Sea Dog Brew Pub. The pickle to breading ratio was a bit off.

The reason I love John Harvard’s so much is that not only is the beer always fun and new, but I have never gotten a meal I didn’t love. It’s also the only place (besides Stephen Anthony’s breakfast menu) where I actually order the specials.

Today’s special that caught my eye was a pork tenderloin and pineapple kabob covered in teriyake sauce on a bed of mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables. Yup. Awesome.

The meat came nice and rare, as I ordered and was seasoned perfectly! Shocker, Nolan went with the buffalo chicken wrap (his 4TH of the week btw) so I clearly won this round of meal ordering.

I am really looking forward to eating the second half of this dish for lunch today. 🙂 Besides having to be rolled out of the restaurant, it was the perfect meal!

Monday Montage: Very Late

So this post is pretty damn late. I love long weekends, but I feel like it takes me twice as long to get back into my weekly routine. I have been exponentially busy over the past few days, and you will hopefully see why in a few days. So, excuse aside, here is a quick snap shot of my Memorial Day weekend.
