Sugar, spice, and a pinch of GLAM

 

03.11.2014: FOURever plus 1

Hello, dolls!! 🙂 Today has got to be my most laid back Sunday here in Baltimore. Weather was too beautiful that I wish A was off today so we could be out on the porch chilling. I find myself falling asleep on the couch several times today, I am pretty beat I must say. The past 6 weeks has been a roller coaster ride, and now things are slowing down a little.

Yesterday, I witnessed LOVE and COMMITMENT happen right before my eyes. The two people that A and I love were joined together by God in Holy Matrimony. I am so glad that A and I are a part of it. I am going to save all the cheesy details about them – us – and the wedding next time (with photos included!). But let me tell you upfront that it is such a blessing to be part of each other’s lives. I am dedicating this post to the people who made “us” possible for A and I.

Food is our common denominator.

First time we all hung out, first time we all drove an hour away from Cockeysville, and the reason why we are all in this State — food has always been there for the 4 of us.

My Ca Tre Banh Mi

Marinated catfish, coriander, pickled daikon, mayo, chicken liver pate ,sriracha, cucumber

THIS WAS THE BOMB! Everything about this was just glorious. The balance  of the flavors and amount of ingredients. I also love the fact that I  got 2 of the things that I really wanted to try  — the chicken liver pate and the catfish! YUMMS

Portoguese Sausage

What makes Duke’s Grocery more awesome is that they make everything in their kitchen. EVERYTHING. And oh, they don not have a regular menu! Yup, they serve different kinds of food errrday!

I swear if I live in DC, I would go here every day!
