Hello, dolls!! Hello, weekend!! <3 The perfect word to describe this week is refreshing. I got my snow day in the middle of my work week and it was AMAZING! It felt like a “mini weekend” since I got off at 3PM on Tuesday and was able to go in a little later on Thursday. Getting extra time with baby A is always a blessing for me. My time is very calculated. Since my work schedule doesn’t change, I was able to come up with a schedule that works for me as a Mom and an individual. So whenever I get extra time in a week, I get super ecstatic! It means more time with my family and more things for me to accomplish.
Spring is officially here but it doesn’t feel like it! Baby A and I are so ready to wear lighter clothes! lol Though I have to say, I am just SO ready to put away his winter stuff so I can have room for the new ones!
I am almost done with my 2015 entries. I know I know, it’s not ideal but I have so MANY great adventures from the past 3 years and I would hate to not share it!
Whenever A and I get a night off on a weekend, we make sure we go somewhere nice to eat. Being in the food industry, we see it as an opportunity to learn something new. As husband and wife, it’s a great way for us to spend quality time and catch up 😉
Birroteca is nestled beside the light rail. When we still had our apartment in Timonium, I would take the light rail once in a while and pass by Birroteca and tell A, we should go there next for our date night.
We requested to sit on the veranda because the weather was nice. Summer is the perfect time to literally eat out!
If you don’t know by now….A and I are CRAZY about steak tartare!! Aaah just looking at this picture makes me want to go to Birroteca now!
Everything about this is just perfect! From the delicate texture of the beef, the balance of flavors from the dressing, the perfectly toasted crostini, and the salsa verde that complimented the tartare! Ahhh soooo good!! <3
Braised Pork Belly with Cherry Pepper Jam
The pork belly was very tender! The jam went perfectly with the pork belly.
Burrata with Heirloom Tomatoes
One of the reasons I love summer is because of heirloom tomatoes! I could eat them all day, every day! The unique taste that I get with every bite makes me love tomatoes even more! You can never go wrong with excellent cheese and delicious tomatoes.
Appetizers done right 😛
Orecchiette with Duck Liver and Peas
Definitely one of the best duck pasta dishes I’ve had!! The flavors that enveloped every bite that I had was extraordinary. This made our night even more special <3
Duck Pizza with Duck Egg and Fig Jam
Birroteca is also known for their flatbreads so we had to try the most interesting from the menu.
A gets excited about anything duck so we ordered the two best duck dishes for our entrees.
This did not disappoint. The chocolate mousse was very smooth and not too sweet.
I love being this man’s food buddy <3
Can you believe we are going to welcome April next week?
