Afternoon! This is going to be quick (how many posts have I started with that disclaimer? Don’t answer that…) because I am in the library where I am meant to “learn” and not blog. Blogging can be a learning and teaching process too, but that is a tangent for another day. Moving back to food, my grandparents and I went to Redstone American Grill for lunch today, and it was quite a treat, let me tell you!
My grandparents went last weekend, so they knew all the tricks. Trick #1: mimosas are FREE if you ask! We asked.
Trick #2: the table was also brought a giant (read: plate-sized) complimentary sticky bun.
I just love free things! It was pretty good, and I picked at it all through lunch, but I’m a sticky bun snob and nothing beats Mama Patch’s pecan rolls (vintage LVP). I also had some coffee with 2%… I don’t think “fat free” are words that are frequently uttered at Redstone, but that was just fine.
We ordered a skillet of cornbread to share, and I have to say that this was, hands-down, the best cornbread I have ever had. The consistency was perfect; I’m a believer of actual corn kernels being integrated into the mix in addition to cornmeal, and they had this down pat.
It was served with maple butter which was pure heaven. Don’t worry, I brought some home and will be enjoying it with dinner.
For my entrée, I ordered the Seared Ahi Tuna: sesame seed and black pepper crusted sushi grade tuna, Asian slaw, wasabi, and soy-lime sauce. This was technically a “small plate,” but with all the sweet breads it was more than enough.
Well, time to end the fun and get a-crackin’ for the week ahead. It’s really nice out so I’m hoping to finish up here and squeeze in an outdoor run… it’s going to be rainy the rest of the week so this might be my only chance. Hope you’re having a nice day!
