Lunch: We went to one of my favorite restaurants in downtown C'ville, Bizou. Here is what Food & Wine had to say about my little favorite in May 2004: "This downtown diner gets packed at lunchtime with University of Virginia faculty. The retro interior features red-leather booths and vintage movie posters. There's roasted chicken and grilled rib eye, but Bizou's specialty is its succulent homemade meat loaf with chipotle ketchup (119 W. Main St.; 434-977-1818)." Their gourmet down-home cooking is to-die-for, especially on blustery days like today. They have my favorite summer meal, a golden beet salad with fresh chevre and their house-made honey mustard dressing. It is SO good. I was surprised that it was still on the menu today, but I was craving something warm and filling so I got their veggie burrito instead.
I'm sorry about the picture quality, I only had my iphone and the restaurant is pretty dark inside.
No cheese or sour cream inside, just wonderful sauteed greens and veggies. I found lots of spinach, brussels sprout leaves, onions, carrots, corn and diced tomato inside. And I asked for the creme fraiche on the side...normally they drizzle it all over the top. The burrito is so good though that I think I only drizzled the spicy, creamy sauce on two bites.
I finished everything on my plate. Yum.
For an afternoon snack I have a Clif Nectar bar, but we typically have wine and cheese in my office on Friday afternoons so I may hold off on snacking on the bar until I know if we're doing that today.
Have a great afternoon!
