Neighborfood and Weekly Meals

On Sunday, we went on a fun food adventure in Mountain View. Basically, we got to go on a self-guided tour of eight downtown restaurants and enjoyed a small plate at each. Neighborfood was created by Dishcrawl – a company that brings people together over food. Dishcrawl was founded by Tracy Lee right here in Silicon Valley but is now all over the country. Great job, Tracy!

Here are some photos:


And here are our meals for this week (yes, I am in a “soupy mood” this week):

Meal 1: Oxtail soup with veggies.
Meal 2: Lentil/veggie soup.
Meal 3: Carrot soup with black rice.
Meal 4: Veggie stir fry with over-easy eggs.
Meal 5: Leftovers.

Questions: What was the highlight of your weekend? Is Dishcrawl in your city? What’s on your menu this week? 

Be well,
Andrea

  2. This restaurant tour sounds like so much fun! I love the photo montage (especially the kid eating pizza off the edge of the plate - too cute!). It sounds like you had a great weekend!

    On our menu this week is oven-fried chicken (Peter is excited about that one, lol) and some bean curries and soups. Can't wait ;)

  3. We have that in Chicago, but I don't know. I now live 55 miles NW of the city, and while that doesn't seem too far, I only get down there a few times a year - luckily my daughter lives in Chicago so I get down there more often - I miss seeing her face everyday!

    Although, now that I have an iPhone, we can face talk which I can't wait to do - I was never able to set up skype on my computer right!

    1. We live about 45 miles from San Francisco, and we don't make it there very often either...

      Enjoy the new phone and seeing your daughter! :) It's so strange when they grow up...

  4. I can't believe how grown-up the kid is! Wow!
    Looks like a lot of fun :) I need to menu plan today, actually. I think tonight we might be having leftovers from enchiladas over the weekend!

    1. It looks like there aren't any scheduled Dishcrawls in Vegas right now, but they do have private ones.

  12. I've never heard of Dishcrawl but it sounds awesome! And oxtail soup sounds brave! I had it once at a restaurant and it was delicious!

    1. Yes, Dishcrawl is great!

      Oxtail soup is very popular in Korean cuisine, but it's not something I every thought of making. However, I recently became really interested in making bone broths. I actually made the bone broth (and the oxtails) in the slow cooker. It turned out very good, but I wasn't too fond of the smell while cooking it all day... Definitely not the pleasant smell you get when you make chicken stock...

  13. Oh, I love soups all winter. They feel sort of like a warm cozy bathtub when they go down. :D

    The Dishcrawl food looked fabulous! You look great in those pictures too. :D
