Yesterday I woke up feeling, let’s just say, not bright eyed and bushy tailed. I had a blast going out in DC on Friday night, but in the morning I needed to recover, and fast!
So, I did what anyone would do in my state. Fry an egg, put it on top of leftover pizza, and eat it in bed in your
The pizza was leftover from Open City – Roasted corn, ricotta, mozzarella & jalapeno cream. Cooked extra crispy. And just what I needed.
Here it is sitting pretty the night before. Their gf pizza crust is just so good:
It didn’t exactly “cure” my hangover, but it sure made my belly happy.
So did my lunch from Firefly in Dupont.
I’ve been excited to try their gluten free menu for awhile. And although I don’t necessarily agree with their claim to be “the quintessential urban neighborhood restaurant in Washington DC,” it still was a really cute place.
A mushroom and cheddar omelette for me! Substitute home fries for normal fries, because the more grease the better!
The mushrooms in the omelette were great, and the fries were my favorite kind: skinny, crispy, and handcut.
And some fruit on the side to put some nutrition in my diet of carbs and cheese.
Add a strong cup of coffee, a couple of ibuprofen, and I managed to make it through :)
I’m going to have to go back to Firefly to try their gluten free dinner menu: shrimp and grits, collard greens, truffle fries.
Oh, and a peanut butter ice cream “sandwich” for dessert: flourless chocolate cake, bananas foster sauce, peanut brittle, sea salt.
I need one right now!
