DC Part 2

Met up with an old girlfriend from home Margaret and got to meet her ADORABLE son Caleb for the first time!! 

                                                         muhahaha how cute is he?!

Tomato Bisque w/ Parmesan crostini

Balsamic Chicken and Arugula Pizza

Salmon Nicoise Salad

Creamy Chicken and Spinach Pasta

Oh nom nom oh how I've missed Nordstrom cafe food hahaha

I've also missed blended iced coffee drinks as well haha.. odd because when we lived in San Francisco we actually lived RIGHT on top of a Starbucks.. and I probably got a blended coffee drink a total of 4 times the ENTIRE time we lived there.. it's funny how you miss things you can't get!

Like Dim Sum for instance!!

Oh how I regret taking Dim Sum for granted in San Francisco!

Lou Bou Gao and Fried Taro Balls

Shrimp Cheung Fun

Fried Shrimp and Fried Tofu

Sticky Rice and Pork Ribs

Shui Mai and Har Gow

Mango snow ice


This is Butter! :) 

This is Butter's mommy Tammy :)

Heart this picture :)!

Mon Ami Gabi a french bistro.. they have chains all over the US all the way to Chicago to Las Vegas if I'm not mistaken.

We ordered a sampling of appetizers!  I love eating that way.. although truthfully I still think we probably ordered too much haha.. the staff was AWESOME though.. we ordered one poached egg salad.. and they brought it out on TWO plates with TWO poached eggs!!  That is seriously awesome service!

Pate w/ red wine mustard with toasted brioche accompanied by cornichons, pearl onions and olives 

Frisee, Kale, Warm Bacon and Poached Egg Salad

This was absolutely divine.  Seriously runny egg yolk over ANYTHING is amazing!

Mussels Mariniere in white wine 

Escargot De Bourgogne

Duck Confit w/ Balsamic Cherries and Watercress
