My hubby and I had a Friday evening to ourselves thanks to the twins spending the night at Nana and Bapa’s. We were both tired after a long week so we opted to do take out from Twisted Root Burger for dinner. Hubby had the Green Chile, Guac & Pepper jack Burger and I tried the Chipotle, Guac & Cheddar Burger. The spicy chipotle sauce coupled with the cheddar and guacamole made for a smoky, flavorful burger with just the right amount of heat for this spice loving mama. The green chili and pepper jack add an underlying southwest feel that’s just perfect. These have definitely been added to have again list. The $7.99 per burger comes with lettuce, tomato onions and your choice of specialty pickle slices.  Fries, onion rings or sweet potato chips are sold separately.

The other things that might get in the way of ordering these to go is Twisted Root Burger’s policy not to take phone to go orders during lunch (between 11 and 2) or on the weekends. Who wants to stand in line for 30 minutes to place a to go order? Right?

The burgers are delicious so try them if you get a chance.

The twins and I met some friends for lunch at the Neuhaus Cafe the other day. I had their Cobb salad with turkey bacon and it was really good. Talk about filling. The combination of spinach with romaine lettuce, two kinds of cheeses (blue cheese and cheddar), along with a whole boiled egg made for a hearty lunch. The twins enjoyed cheese pizza and some of my salad. Although it ended up being an expensive lunch, I would probably consider having dinner there or do take out dinner because I know I’m going to crave that salad at some point.

We topped of our little epicurean adventure with a stop next door at the Pink Berry Frozen Yogurt place. Wow! Their mini at $1.99 is perfect! They let you sample the different yogurt flavors and then you can pick out 3 toppings out of several choices. Twin brother opted for coconut yogurt, gummi bears, shredded coconut and chocolate shavings. Twin sister opted for mango yogurt with chocolate shavings, gummi bears and chocolate mini chips. Mom stuck with plain old vanilla yogurt, although I wish I’d gotten the mango instead because the vanilla starts to taste a bit bitter the more you eat it and the mango was true to it’s first taste. My toppings of honey almond granola x2 and dark chocolate mini sprinkles were just perfect! I would definitely take the kids to the Pink Berry Frozen Yogurt again!
