I don’t know about you, but personally I don’t like sitting in traffic. I spend a few hours a day commuting to work and can handle road congestion most of the time. This past weekend we took a little road trip to Baltimore and the traffic Gods decided to put me through a torture. A trip that normally takes about 3 hours tuned into a complete nightmare that lasted for 7 hours. We endured 7 hours of bumper to bumper the entire way home, 175 miles to be exact. I think I could have ran faster than the cars were moving. Needless to say this will be the last trip we took on a holiday weekend.
My WIAW posts usually include food I eat on Tuesdays but I felt like switching it up a bit and sharing my eats from our road trip.
On Saturday night we had dinner at The Black Olive, a restaurant that serves authentic organic Greek cuisine. The seafood choices are limitless. Everything is made with freshest organic produce and seafood. Even the artisanal bread is made right at the restaurant. Sinfully delicious food.
We started with a warm whole grain bread basket served with organic extra virgin olive oil. Between the four of us it was gone in seconds. For an appetizer we shared a seafood grille of prawns, calamari, mussels, clams and lobster tails. Finger licking good.
For dinner I had grilled fish served with amazingly delicious mushroom polenta. I was so eager to eat it that I forgot to take a picture of everyone’s food. 🙂
The original plan was to have Maryland steamed blue crab on Sunday morning and then head home. What we failed to know was that no one serves steamed crab on Easter Sunday in Maryland. So we ventured further south into Washington DC to a place called Hot n Juicy Crawfish. We ordered crawfish, prawns and Dungeness crab steamed with Hot n Juicy special seasoning and stuffed our faces until all of it was gone. It was messy, fun and succulent. Who said you can’t play with your food. As you can see it got really messy.
Enjoy your week. Thanks to Peas and Crayons for hosting. 🙂
