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 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 left Utah today and headed toward South Dakota to see the Crazy Horse Memorial and Mount Rushmore. We made one stop during today’s trip. It was a travel stop that had a Subway and Chesters Chicken. I ordered a Three Piece Chicken Snack with a side of Fried Corn and a Honey Biscuit. It was a well-timed and tasty break!
We went to grab dinner at Red Robin tonight. I wanted to try their new Porkiyaki Burger, but after I ordered it, the server told me they were out. So, I tried their Banzai Burger and Bottomless Fries. The burger was OK, but I must’ve gotten the bottom of the fries because they weren’t very good. I decided to wash it down with a Blue Moon, but the server returned to say they were out of that, too. Then, he rattled off a bunch of other beers they were out of. So, I stuck with my water. Overall a unsatisfying meal.
During our visit to Muskegon, we decided to pick up pizzas from Zaloma’s Pizza Co. I like to support local businesses, and I like it even more when it’s owned by someone I know. We ordered one Zaloma’s Fav, a Maui and an order of Cheese Bread. Everything was as good as I remembered the first time. Keep up the good work!
For dinner, we shared a meal with friends who we were stationed with in England in 2002. It was a great visit at Firebirds Wood Fired Grill. My Pineapple Chicken Kabob with Parmesan Mashed Potatoes was good, but the visit was the highlight.
I had Teppanyaki Combo of Filet Mignon and Lobster with Noodles, Fried Rice, Veggies, soup and salad with a Koto Japanese version of Long Island Iced Tea to wash it down. It was a great day celebrating Morgan’s accomplishment.
