That Gut Wrenching Feeling

March 12, 2013

Our last whole day and I could feel the tears well up at the smallest things, but I was a sport and kept on going to make the best of the day. Why ruin it with tears. The whole time he was home, we never did venture out to Seattle... we were always in nearby cities, but we decided we would go get his favorite 8oz Burger in Capitol Hill. I love their rustic decor and using locally sourced ingredients. You can read more about them here.

We started off with Beecher's mac and cheese (not pictured) and it is possibly the best mac 'n cheese I've ever had... we seriously devoured that the minute our waiter put it down. Hubby ordered their Classic 8oz while I tried their Banh Mi Burger. Oh my goodness my burger was so delicious! It's made with marinated beef/pork sausage patty with pickled daikon and carrots, cucumber, serrano peppers, liver pate and lemongrass siracha aioli all on a brioche bun. My mouth was on fireeee after I got a big slice of the pepper though, but oh so worth it.

We also ordered roasted garlic fries and bacon brussel sprouts. Truthfully, I think the way I make my brussel sprouts taste a whole lot better, but I've seen rave reviews on Yelp. I know that there's a million and one things to eat in Seattle, but if you're ever there, I recommend checking out 8oz!

  1. I love Beechers mac and cheese! So rich and delish. I'm sorry to hear his last day was so sad. :(

    1. I think Beechers mac and cheese is the BEST mac n cheese I've ever had! They do sell it at the grocery stores for like $11 though but fresh is better.

  2. Hi I'm Emily! Please email me when you get a chance, I have a question about your blog!

  3. I take it you're facing a deployment? I am so thankful for your husbands service and your sacrifice for our country! You are truly an inspiration, I can only come close to what you are going through! That food looks amazing, that's one thing we lack here in the boonies of VA!

    1. This is the comment of the day! Well, it's night time now, but it definitely made me smile :) Yes, my husband is currently deployed. First time being by myself and so far... okay.

      When we were stationed in upstate new york, we were totally in the boonies and was missing good food! They only had chain restaurants and by the time I moved, they opened a Chipotle, Coldstone and a bunch of other stuff.


Hi friend and thank you so much for taking the time to read my blog!
