Saturday, June 13: Nando's Peri Peri - Forgot how much I love their Spicy Garlic sauce!
Sunday, June 14: Attended my first Langar that a friend's family was hosting at the DC Gurdwara. In the Sikh community, this is an Indian vegetarian meal offered to visitors of the Gurdwara. The food was delicious!
Later that night I went to a cook out at my cousin's home. He picked up some marinated chicken from Halalco, a grocery store in Falls Church. The meat was so delicious, I definitely went away with a nice little doggy bag, and had lunch for a few days.
Monday, June 15: Boss Shepherd's - This southern comfort food restaurant has been on my list for some time now. A friend treated me to dinner here as an early birthday treat. Let me just say the fried chicken was phenomenal - crunchy on the outside and juicy on the inside. Below is the steak dish we also ordered, which came with grilled romaine and a creamy lemon dressing. I'll be doing a full review on this one soon enough!
Tuesday, June 16: Green Turtle - Met up with some friends to watch Game 6 of the NBA Finals. The Golden State Warriors won, which means no Game 7, and they're the official NBA Champions for 2015. An honor they last received in 1975. We ordered the Buffalo Chicken Dip and Spicy Meatball Flatbread Pizza to share.
Wednesday, June 17: Checked out a local Latino grocery store, Foodway, to buy some ingredients for my Friday night Caribbean themed birthday. Most of my friends swear that the best avocados are at the Latin markets, and it appears they're right!
Thursday, June 18: Most of Thursday was spent prepping for my birthday party, but I managed to sneak in an episode or two of the new Netflix original series "Chef's Table." Check out the trailer on Eater. I'm very obsessed with this series right now.
Friday, June 19: Did anyone know that On The Border caters? Well they do, and today my office hosted an On The Border catered lunch to celebrate the June birthdays in the office. Woohoo pass the guac!
Did you also know that Jennifer Aniston is authoring a cookbook? What can't she do???
Anyway, back to my Friday, I hosted a little cook out to ring in my 30th birthday. I'll be posting soon about my Caribbean themed menu. Look out for pictures on our Instagram account too!
