I ate Hongos Tacos, which were made of balsamic grilled mushrooms, black bean purée, chihuahua cheese, poblano rice, pico de gallo and guacamole. I paired them with Grilled Street Corn and some amazing Sweet Chili-Glazed Cracked Potatoes. Finally, I washed it down with a couple Margaritas on the rocks.
I started with a Hamilton Co. Smash, the official drink of Hamilton County, Indiana. We shared a Fried Goat Cheese Caprese appetizer, and while it was OK, I think I prefer to the the unfried mozzarella. For my entree, I ordered the Durango Ribeye served with garlic mashed potato, portobello, bleu cheese, tomato, spinach, bacon. It was a little more done than I preferred, but it was still tasty. For dessert, we shared a creme brûlée, which was simply amazing!
We had a family dinner at a local Mexican restaurant, Tres Hombres Mexican Grill and Cantina. I ordered their speciality, Oaxacan Style Enchiladas: One Beef, one Chicken and one Pork. They were very tasty but way too much food to eat. It came with a side of Rice and Refried Beans. I washed it down with a Dos Equis.
We went out to eat with family tonight. It was pub food and another culinary delight. I ordered their fan favorite Break Po Boy with a ton of Tots. The roll was a little overwhelmed with the toppings, but I didn’t let that stop me. I grabbed a fork and gobbled it up! I even munched on most of the sauce-soaked roll and all its goodness. But, the Tots were too much. I could only eat about half of them before calling it quits, but it wasn’t for lack of trying.
We had a team dinner tonight at a German restaurant. It was a good time. I ordered Jaeger Schnitzel and washed it down with a gigantic beer.
I ate an amazing Ribeye with Fire-Grilled Corn on the Cob. It was so nice to eat something with a knife and fork. I’m so stuffed is that I feel like a tick. I’m sure I’ll sleep well tonight! Sweet dreams!
We just made it home! As the traffic started getting heavy through Chicago, we stopped by a travel Oasis for our last dinner of the trip. I grabbed a plate from Panda Express and a Starbucks for the road. The plate included Chow Mein, Fried Rice, Sweet Fire Chicken and Beijing Beef. Note to self: 700 miles may have been pushing it for one day.
