Licking Our Chops

Twice now, since we've been in Augusta, we've eaten at The Chop House - a local steak house.

The first night, we went for dinner. We started with the Crispy Fried Asparagus, then salads, then T-bones for our meal. Oh. My. God. It was so delish! Flavorful, juicy and way too much food - we had enough left over to make another dinner for both of us!

Today we had lunch there. We started with the Sweet Corn Tamale Cakes; topped with avocado, diced tomatoes, cilantro and a chipotle ranch dressing. They were really good and I think I'm going to try to re-create this dish:

For the entree, I had the Angus Chop Steak topped with mushrooms & onions and served with a baked sweet potato and parmesan creamed spinach. I didn't take a picture of it though because I was busy getting a picture of Ed's burger.

He had The Steak Burger, 8 oz. of Angus chuck with bacon, cheese and musrooms served with sweet potato fries on the side. The lighting wasn't the best in our cozy little booth, but here's a shot of his lunch.

We've hit the mall twice already, Dunkin' Donuts two mornings in a row, Barnes & Noble the last three days, Walmart once and tomorrow I think I might get my hair cut in addition to a mani/pedi.

It's pretty humid but not as bad as you'd think. In fact, I like this kind of heat so much better than that horribly arid, breath stealing air of the desert that I don't think I've even complained once.

Go ahead, ask Ed if you don't believe me. I'll be planning tomorrow's dining schedule while you do.
