Good Stuff

A few months ago, Mr. Fine and I headed to D.C. for the weekend.  Mr. Fine had eaten at Good Stuff the last time he was in D.C. so it was there, of course, that we headed for dinner on Friday night.  As we were standing in line, I kept thinking to myself that I was positive I had seen the cashier somewhere before.  Me?  A teacher hailing far from D.C. recognizing a cashier in D.C.?  No, must be just their twin double.  We placed our order and stood waiting for the food to arrive.  While we waited we overhead a conversation between a random group of people to this effect:

That's him.  I should get a picture.  No, he'll think I'm crazy.  Oh, just take the picture.

Leave it to Mr. Fine.  He asked the group who they were talking about.  Why, Spike from Top Chef, of course!  So I wasn't crazy!  I did recognize the cashier (er, owner of Good Stuff).  Spike's season of Top Chef was one of the Top Chef seasons that I did watch.

Needless to say, that burger was the best burger I've really ever had.  And the fries.  OMG!

Wish I'd take a picture...but the remnants were none too pretty.  A balled up wrapper is not what blogs are made of! ;-)

A few weeks ago, I borrowed the Good Stuff Eatery cookbook from our local library.  Together (that's code for Mr. Fine) we made the Obama burger and Sunny's fries.

Our attempt at replicating our night out in D.C. took a bit longer than a stand in line...but oh, it was well worth it!

Our Obama burger and Sunny's Fries...home version

Have any of you eaten at Good Stuff?  Which burger did you order?

Back at It with Fill in the Blanks

I'm a bit worried I may have forgotten how to post.  Oops.  Life has gotten a bit busy and I've been terrible about blogging. I take a few minutes each day to read blogs but have really just been stalking.  I'm giving a shot at getting back at the swing of things with a Fill in the Blanks via Lauren.

1. If I could get away somewhere for the weekend I would go absolutely no where!  Is that allowed?  I've been away for most of the week on a class trip and am picking up Mr. Fine at the airport tomorrow morning.  A weekend of home time is much needed.  We do plan on planting the yard this weekend so I will be getting to the garden store!

2. Something I often rant about is the decisions made by our administration...that and people who drive under the speed limit.  I'm not a speeder but at least go the speed limit!

3. One item I need to have in my fridge at all time is a carton of fresh cage-free veggie fed eggs.  I typically get the urge to bake on the weekends and go nuts when my eggs have expired...which may indeed by the case when tomorrow morning rolls around.  Hmm.

4. My "life-saving" product is my iPhone.  I'm constantly checking my mail for sweet messages from Mr. Fine.  There's nothing like a quick email filled with love to keep me going through the day.

5. A friend is someone who can keep a secret!  Nothing drives me more batty than friends who gossip.

6. If I could write my own blank it would be what the latest CD someone bought was.

7. My favorite kind of art is the kind I understand! ;-)  I'm a very linear person with little creativity.  You may remember my dive into photography.  Any art that speaks to me is wonderful!

Thanks for reading...if there's still anyone still out there!  I apologize for my absence.  This year's been a bit stressful but I'm hanging in there.  Nothing a good visit from Mr. Fine this weekend can't solve!

Have a wonderful weekend, my friends!
