February Look Back

What happened to February?

Last month flew by so fast… and I don’t even really know where the time went.

Yes, I do …

There was snow. Lots of snow, which kept us hunkered down inside.

Then the flu happened for both of us at separate times, but thankfully there are no pictures of that.

All was not lost though. Some great meals were eaten too …

Instead of a fancy dinner for Valentine’s Day, we indulged in a scrumptious brunch at Trummer’s on Main in Clifton.

Those little pillows of heaven above were beignets, and yes, we ate all of them. I also had avocado eggs benedict with pimento cheese, and Sean got chicken and waffles.

We also joined our friends for a great tasting meal at Kapnos, a greek restaurant in DC. We were big fans of George, who made it to down to number 4 on the latest season of Top Chef, so we were excited to actually see him in the kitchen cooking away the night we visited there. I like to imagine that he prepared this braised lamb just for us…

This meal at Kapnos was so delicious and beautiful that it deserves its own post (coming soon)

On Sean’s side, he did a 50 mile hike one Saturday in February. You read that correctly. 50 miles. He tried to get me involved too, but I did not fall for that. He posted pictures of his blisters to friends on FB, but I’m not going to do that here.

On my side, I’m a little ashamed to admit I broke down and saw Fifty Shades of Gray with some girlfriends on Valentine’s Day. I wanted to be part of the spectacle, I suppose.

But there’s only one word to describe that experience.

REGRET.

As in, how could fall for the hype? I knew better. I really did.

Anyway, March is already in full swing and there are lots of fun things going on this month, which I will be very excited to share later.

Up on the agenda is a Spring Break trip to Key West, and a special food event which features all you can eat bacon.

How was your February? Are you ready for Spring?
