Wahooo for Friday! I’m so excited that its finally here!! How has your week been? Mine has been pretty busy (work wise) but good.
This week, I made taco salads on two separate nights, once for me and once for Josh. My version involved Hokan’s Chili Sauce with Garlic:
I had never used this sauce, but was excited to give it a go! I boiled up a batch of fresh shrimp, tossed them in a tablespoon or two of the sauce and put them in the refrigerator to chill.
Later that evening, I chopped up half of the shrimp and placed them on top of a large taco salad of sorts (spinach, broccoli slaw, chopped apple, salsa and a broiled tortilla):
Not pretty, but delicious :)
I followed a simple marinade recipe from Simply Recipes: olive oil, lime, garlic, cumin and chopped jalapenos (I eliminated the cilantro). After the steak had rested in the fridge for a few hours, I cooked it up in a pan with a touch more olive oil. I also added corn and jalapenos to the mix. I then placed the steak/corn/jalapeno mixture on a bed of spinach and broccoli slaw with broiled tortilla chips:
Josh really enjoyed this salad.
The restaurant is still relatively new and was very quiet.
They have a great, traditional breakfast menu that includes everything from pancakes and French toast (which I heard a few people raving about) to huge omelets:
M & I started with coffee (decaf for me, regular for her). I loved their mugs and that they offer skim milk instead of cream (if you’d like it). My only complaint was that the coffee was just warm…I like HOT HOT coffee ;):
They also have free wifi (as you can see by the cords in the above picture ;)). We both were “boring” and got the yogurt, fruit & granola bowl. The difference? This bowl was made with GREEK yogurt (YUM!) and topped with honey. The fruit was very fresh and the granola was tasty:
The restaurant was also super clean and the service was fabulous. Mandi & I plan to visit Honeycomb cafe again!
Do y’all have weekend plans?? Tomorrow, Mandi, myself, Bryan & Josh & friends are headed to a beer festival. On Sunday, we have a blogger brunch! Enjoy your weekend :)
