Karibbean Kitchen

After the 2015 closing of a DC Caribbean Food Favorite, Sweet Mango Cafe, we have been super pressed to find a great neighborhood Caribbean Food spot. But no more because Karibbean Kitchen have answered our Jerk and Curry Prayers. I was surprised and overjoyed when the hubster came home with a sample of their food; a chicken patty, a vegetable patty and some Coco bread and it was SOOO GOOD! I just love coco bread! So when a friend called on me to handle some business and catch up for a drink, I had to share with her this new find. So we went and were extremely satisfied with the selection and the great service.

Karibbean Kitchen is conveniently located at 1400 Meridian Place NW, Washington, DC 20010.
They are just 3-4 blocks from the Columbia Heights Metro Station.

Eating Healthy at Home

Happy Sunday I’m Eating Healthier! 

As I grow older and older, I realize that it’s what I put into my body to give it longevity and vitality that becoming more important to me. So today, and hopefully this day forward, I committing to a better and more healthy lifestyle. This oatmeal with bananas and granny smith apples is delicious and will hopefully give me the energy I need to get my Sunday errands done. 

Cheers to healthy living and lots of love! 

Speaking of love, the moments I share with loved ones feeds my spirit & brings joy to my heart. I’m thankful for those times. Just a friendly reminder to love hard on your loved ones, tomorrow is never promised.

Astor Burger & Fries

Astor Mediterranean of Adams Morgan is one of our favorite neighborhood places to eat. It has great food and it’s inexpensive. It’s definitely in my top 5 spots for neighborhood cheap eats. And although I don’t eat red meat, Bae does and absolutely loves the Astor Burger! I usually eat half of his fries because they are so light and crispy. There is so much on their menu to enjoy. I recommend the Eggplant Parmesan Panini, it’s sooo delicious. Also the Veggie Pizza and the White Pizza are some of my favorites. 

Check out their menu here:  Astor Mediterranean

Jasmine Mar-TEA-ni at Purple Patch

It’s a great thing when you get to go to Happy Hour to benefit a great cause!

Purple Patch hosts a happy hour that’s a benefit for Bancroft Elementary School. One of my favorite couples in the world has their kids enrolled at Bancroft so to know that I’m helping to support their little ones school is awesome! The fist time I came here I had the most amazing drink with ginger root and vodka… and I do mean AMAZING. This time I was sad to see it was no longer on the menu. But I found this wonder MarTEAni made Jasmine Tea Flavored Vodka, Lemon Juice and Honey syrup. YES HONEY! It was EVERYTHING! I also had the Chicken Adobo Sliders (not pictured) and they were divine (singing Deeeeee-viiiiine).

So if and when you’re in DC, please come on up to my neighborhood to check out Purple Patch. You won’t be disappointed.

Evol Portabella & Goat Cheese Ravioli

What’s for dinner?

When the hubster is at work and you don’t feel like cooking for “ONE”, it sounds like the kind of night for a TV Dinner. But this ain’t your mother’s generation of TV dinners. No Honey! This is Evol’s Portabella & Goat Cheese Ravioli!

Since we have gone vegetarian again (we’ve gone vegetarian so many times in our household) we have been pretty selective in what we keep in our refrigerator. But this has been a winner. It’s conveniently available at Target (and we go there a lot). It’s super inexpensive (under $4.00). It’s pretty filling! So if you’re looking for a tasty, vegetarian, TV dinner because you are too lazy to cook (like me) or maybe you’re just looking for something quick, I suggest you try this one.

It’s yummy and good for the tummy!
