Milkboy Philly

It was 25 degrees out when I woke up this morning, but the pup still needed to go out & we needed to go to gym we layered up & headed out. I'm so happy we did because along the way we ran by Milkboy on 11th & stopped in.

What a fabulously perfect find! The food was great & the company even better. Knowledgeable & attentive, but not overbearing. We felt like we were having brunch in a friends home.
We ate a breakfast burrito with pork. Great smoky grill taste, not spicy, but provided jalapenos & sauce for spice, terrific creamy black beans. Yum! We ate that one too fast to take a picture of it.
Next we had a blue cheese patty melt. Burger was cooked perfect, copious amounts of melty, creamy blue cheese on crusty buttery sourdough bread and I side of picked veggies and crunchy thick fries. We managed to control ourselves long enough to get a pic of this one.

If you have not been to Milkboy, you must go!

December 31, 2011

This was the warmest NYE I remember. We could go out in a sweater, didn't need a jacket. Crazy.

We headed out for brunch at one our favorite 'special occasion only' restaurants, (special occasion only bc its so severely overpriced) Beau Monde.
Oh what a treat! A bloody mary to start, theirs are fantastic. A perfect mix of tomato & clam juice, plus that traditional spice mix! This drink can solve all your problems.

We gorged ourselves on crepes stuffed with tender chicken & veggies in a mild wine sauce; eggs mushrooms & goat cheese & then, for dessert, apples, dulce de leche & vanilla ice cream!
We were stuffed & it was 50 degrees out, so we strolled around the neighborhood. If you have time to wander OFF of South st. I highly recommend it, you'll find amazing treasures.

Fast forward to 8ish pm & dinner time. The warm weather continued through the night, so we took advantage & fired up the bbq. T-bones with salt, pepper & fresh rosemary; sauteed mushrooms & onions mixed with blue cheese & smashed potatoes.

All chased down with an original Four Loco we had hidding in the back of our fridge. Which means it has caffeine & alcohol.  And as my brother reminded me, they only removed the caffeine from it, not the alcohol.
We partied in our PJs till the wee hours...Happy new years all!
