Piggy

When we see a show with my parents, we always go to dinner at Meat & Potatoes. SP & I have liked the restaurant for years and my parents like it a lot, too, although they only dine there when they're with us. It was, as usual, delicious, and we tried a new-to-us dish. 
The Smoked Brisket Mac & Cheese (coffee BBQ, maytag blue cheese, horseradish, BBQ potato chips). This was so darn tasty. Even SP liked it and he dislikes blue cheese.   
 As usual: Fried Brussels (parmesan / lemon aioli).
 Another usual: Fried Pickles (spicy ranch). Still my favorite fried pickles.  
My usual, my favorite sandwich: Three Little Pigs (pork milanese, ham, bacon, swiss, fried egg)
It's enormous and I could only eat a bit over one third but it makes me so happy, all that piggy goodness.
Dad had Pot Roast (braised chuck roast, baby carrots, turnips, cipollini onions, parsnips, horseradish, gremolata) but I didn't take a photo. Mom had Lamb Neck Cassoulet (Jamison Farms lamb, lamb bacon streusel, lamb sausage, five beans, mint yogurt, watercress) but the photos turned out blurry. SP had Salmon (black rice, kim chi, cucumber, chinese sausage, korean hot sauce, fried egg, ginger scallion relish). His salmon looks like a black blob in the above photo, oh well. 
 As usual, we ordered one of each dessert & shared. There was a vanilla custard.
 There was a chocolate pot de creme.
And there was a blueberry-key lime one. This one was too tart for me, mom, & dad, so SP got to enjoy all of it.
Then we waddled out and went home where I tried to relax with tea and water but I was so darn full. I suppose the Sgt. Pepper’s Old Fashioneds (bulleit bourbon, bpt syrup, whiskey barrel bitters, lemon) didn't help things. I was a piggy who ate a lot of piggy but it was worth it.

Still one of our favorite restaurants.
