Wax AttackPosted: February 26, 2011
Hello, friends!! I hope you’re not up as early as I am on this fine Saturday morning 🙂 I’m getting ready to head out to my Saturday class, but I wanted to share last night’s highlights with you!
After work, I finally made Courtney’s scone recipe!! I was so pleased – they are delicious! I might take one with me to class today 🙂
Around 4 Cory and I metroed into DC, and thanks to LivingSocial we were able to hang out with all 44 (wax) Presidents – and some wonderful celebrities – at Madame Tassauds 🙂 I thought Heather would enjoy this outing 😉
I won’t lie – at first, it was almost like being at a morgue. It was semi-creepy seeing all these life size presidents standing around. But, as you can see…we got over that feel pretty quickly 😉
Cory and Tommy J..
I’m trying to keep an eye out for John Wilkes Booth. (I was disturbed that Lincoln was placed in a theatre booth)
“You can’t handle the truth!!” I forget who this is! But I kept laughing because Cory would bang his fist on the table each time I tried to take a picture. “Cory, I appreciate your enthusiasm, but we’re in public and we can’t hear the fist bang in the photo.”
I was hoping this moment would come 😀
Madame Tassauds was right across the street from a self-serve frozen yogurt shop. We stopped for an appetizer 🙂 A dollop of red velvet cake and a dollop of cheesecake flavors with a hearty serving of rainbown sprinkles and almond slivers. Yes, please! 🙂
We had plans to go to THE CEREAL BOWL (!!!) after Madame T’s – but the crazy intense winds blew a tree over on the metro rail, shutting down the red line, the one needed to get to Cereal Utopia. But it’s okay, we improvised and had a great time!! 😀
We ended up at a Spanish tapas bar – the food was good, but a little too oily/greasy for me. I really can’t tell you in much detail what we ate – and the menu is not online, but I’ll do my best. We started with bread and three dipping oils:
Then shared fried eggplant with a queso dipping sauce:
We moved on to more eggplant – not fried this time – filled with ricotta cheese and tomatoes:
Then we topped off a calamari bowl that had shrimp and mushrooms. It was great!
It looks like a lot of food, but we didn’t finish everything – and the servings were great sizes to share! 🙂 It was almost like we were back in Spain 🙂
Well my friends, I’ve got to hit the road if I want to grab some coffee before class!
Chit – chat: Do you have a favorite President? Mine is Lincoln! 😀
