While we were in D.C. on Sunday, we went to the restaurant that my uncle took me to all of the time when I worked at the Library of Congress. Because I worked on Capitol Hill, we usually stuck to the restaurants in that area. One of the restaurants we most often went to is the Hawk n Dove. It has since closed down and reopened since I worked there, but I still found it mighty delicious.
On Sundays at the Hawk n Dove, they have Bluegrass Brunch in which live music is played and special items are on the menu. One of those special items is their amazing sticky buns. Seriously, they had awesome walnuts and an amazing raspberry sauce. Oh my gosh.
We each also got a pork sandwich and fries. The pork was tangy and totally amazing. I want more. I ate EVERY bite. I am sure the food baby was evident in our engagement pics.
And some more eats as of late. A daily yogurt breakfast with fruit and cereal.
An ugly plate of spaghetti squash, turkey meatballs, and corn. I may have poured the sauce out too quickly. Oh well, just put more squash in and all was well in the end.
Andddd now onto Trav’s new favorite recipe. He loved this one! And it’s thanks to his grandma that I discovered it .
Curry-Cajun Spiced Chicken
- 1/2 cup honey
- 3 tablespoons water
- 3 tablespoons mustard
- 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
- 2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
- 2 teaspoons curry powder
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
Preheat over to 350 degrees. In a baking dish, combine honey, water, mustard, melted butter, Cajun seasoning, curry powder, lemon juice, and garlic. Mix well. Add chicken, turning to coat. I cut my chicken into smaller pieces. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes or until chicken is tender and no longer pink.
So, so yummy. Thanks, Grandma Neiman!
That’s all of the food that I have for you this week. Do note: I think I have eaten my weight in cheddar Goldfish in the past few days. Thank goodness for Sam’s club sized bags!
Happy What I Ate Wednesday! Thanks, as always, to Jenn!
