Texas-transplant to Divinity School, married with cats. http://cookpraylove.blogspot.com
I hit up Humdingers last weekend, since it was one of the few places I could eat on my current diet. They gladly switched out the rice for another side, and the grilled sweet potatoes were huge and delicious. My rainbow trout was quite good, and my husband loved his amberjack. I couldn't try the piri-piri sauce, Ulika, because it had sugar in it unfortunately.
As a mezzo, I've always been keen on baritones myself. Shame that I have other plans that night.
I agree with you on the Manhattan, but I do love a well-made (gin) martini.
On the theme of institutional food, I was fascinated by the hospital food on my recent trip to Kenya. The patients were eating REAL food. I often saw a patient peeling an orange or banana, and lunch was usually a traditional Kenyan offering - lentil stews with chunks of beef or goat, rice, cabbage and carrots, etc. So different from syrup-coated canned fruit and "mystery meat" that I see at hospitals in the US.
School lunch-wise, I went to a private school, but food was still a mixed bag. I ate a lot of chicken patty sandwiches and square pizza and corn dogs. With two working parents, when I packed my own lunch, it wasn't much better - Lunchables or something similar. *shudder*
Last year, I made this butternut squash, kale, and cheddar bread pudding for Thanksgiving as a vegetarian "entree":http://www.cook-pray-love.com/2011/12/butt… It was SO good and even better leftover.
Very excited to have M.L. Rose on the west side, especially with their craft beer selection. But we went Saturday night and had a less than favorable service experience. First, they were out of the first two beers that I ordered but the server didn't know until he went to go get the beer. Then my beer never showed up. Apparently, it had been taken to the wrong table. Finally, I got my beer. Our food arrived without the fries, was dropped off (including a salad), and no one came to check on us even though we had no silverware or napkins. Fortunately, the management made everything right, but I hope they get the quirks figured out. At the least, we won't be going on Saturday night during football season. On the upside, the veggie burger was really good. Nice and crisp on the outside.
Thanks for the thorough update. I heard about Shenanigans, which is unfortunate. I was just up in Sewanee for an overnight but didn't have a chance to eat anything outside of St. Mary's. And the bishop brought enough alcohol to share.
