I think my life is about to change for the better. Again.
The first order of business, of course, would be to buy [and make!] a zillion and one things to stuff in it, but I did things a bit backwards. Paul and I set off on one of our infamous Raleigh//Road//Trips to stock up some of our far away favorites and to simply get away for the weekend. Normally this is my favorite way to recharge, but we have a tiny hitchhiker… so instead it’s simply fun wrapped in sheer chaos. I’ll take my fun where I can get it.
Anywho! We filled a cooler with local eats and Whole Foods goodies and then ordered a deep freezer.
Our first road trip with a tiny human went rather well! We were even able to scout out a new restaurant and essentially hit the foodie jackpot.
“what the whaaaat!?”
Have you ever sat down in a restaurant and thought “Man… I could really go for a burger right now. With fried pickles. And edamame. And… SUSHI!” No? Well I do all the freaking time. And apparently, so do the creators of Cowfish! It’s half sushi bar, half burger bar, and hands-down the stuff dreams are made of. The burgers range from veggie to moocow to bison and the sushi? The sushi menu is pages long. Pages. I think I may have died and gone to heaven.
So naturally we started with some sushi…
and then dove into a burger:
and then died of YUM
The juxtaposition was bizzare… and just plain awesome.
The sushi roll was packed with asparagus, cucumber, avocado, yellowtail and salmon and it paired oddly, but somehow perfectly, with my cranberry-apple-brie turkey burger. I also had some thai cucumber salad and half of P’s fried pickles. Just writing this up makes me want to hop in the car and head back to Raleigh for lunch!
