Cousins. Food. Love. Family. Blessed.…I sound like a broken record player…but in all honesty…Life has been really good to me.
One beautiful Sunday, the six of us ventured to Blue Butcher, (tucked between Classified & The Press Room on Hollywood Road)…people you can’t miss it. When you step in, you feel as if your taken back to a different era. The cool, black decor as you smoothly make your way to the top- restaurant, only to be left breathless! Those steps…stair master! 😉 Cooking up our appetites. Smart move.
Family Cousins Dinner….it doesn’t get any better than this! A fun filled evening….full of Laughter, Love, and LOTS and LOTS of Liquor & food (Darn..could not think of a ‘L’ letter word to describe food…any suggestions? Or all you all lost with what I’m saying? 🙂
Red wine..Yes please.First of the many drinks we had that night! We definitely drank more than one bottle…They also have some pretty creative cocktails….
For example, Yu Jie’s Apple Pie Moonshine. Isn’t that darling? Brown paper bag included 😉 Quite sweet! There’s also a spicy cinnamon flavor to it!
My Mint Julip... Don’t let the giant crushed ice trick you! This one’s…strong!
HERE COMES THE FOOD...Look at the iPhone comparison. A feast for Kings and Queens 🙂 It was ginormous.
Thick slabs of juicy, tender, meaty Beef..We ordered their special beef platter, and split everything. Wagyu Beef, Rib Eye, Prime Rib-MEAT, MEAT, and MORE MEAT! You name it, we ate it. It was…awesome.
Caesar Salad ( & a Mixed Green salad’s picture is missing in action) We try and fool ourselves AND make ourselves feel better by ordering…well, these ‘veggies’ 🙂
Don’t worry, other “veggies” were also consumed!! WE DEFINITELY favored these oh so much more… 😀 Creamy, smooth mashed potatoes.…We couldn’t help ourselves and ordered an extra serving! No gravy needed.
These “veggies” also ended up in our stomachs 🙂 Roasted potatoes… Yes, potatoes ARE vegetables! I keep telling myself that when I’m munching on delicious fries or crunchy chips…MMMMMM 😉 Okay, veering off track…
Creamed Corn 😀 ANOTHER “veggie” dish…Wow, we definitely had a bunch of starchy veggies! Sweet Corn SOAKED in a yummy butter and milk sauce.. More please! We did just that. Ordered an extra one!
ALRIGHT…now…onto what MOST people enjoy in life… 😉 Or, maybe just me….
Cheese Platter…The Blue cheese was HEAVENLY. Rich, sharp and strong! Topped off with some juicy figs…Oh my! I never used to be a fan of cheese platters..but I suppose my taste buds have changed. Or could it be VERY positive influences from Cissy Jie,(she’s SUPER daring with food…makes me try dishes which are now MY FAOVRITE..if I may add)
HK, you’ve changed me!!!! I like it.
Just enjoy the picture. Look at it…look once more…ENJOY….Why yes..it was perfection.
Hot, moist, decadent chocolate brownie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The mix of cold and hot…vanilla and chocolate.. Who came up with this? They deserve a medal!
Apple Crumble Tart w/ a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream! The crust was flaky, crunchy goodness…Hearty portions of hot carmalized apples in every bite! 🙂 But, still….that brownie stole my heart.
Last but not least…RAINBOW Absinthe SHOTS from the bar area!!! Seriously, so blessed with a family who eats AND drinks 🙂 Actually, is that a good thing??
So, how these shots works is it changes colors as it’s poured out (Magic)! It goes from the strongest alcohol (BLUE) to least (ORANGE)….I had the blue shot.
I love you all incredibly much. Twas a splendid evening…FILLED with joy and love! I never laughed so much. I’m seriously blessed. It didn’t hurt that Blue Butcher was so darn tasty, comfortable and hospitable. Definitely coming back again. Hear the Sunday Brunch is not one to miss… 😉
Have a great day everyone!!
