Dinosaur BBQ #RestaurantReview .@dinosaurBQ

I do not eat out much since I had the baby, when I do go out I don’t like wasting my time or my money on yucky food or terrible service, so to help the other moms around the world who want a guaranteed good meal, I am going to do some reviews of places I eat. This review includes TASTE, PIX, and PRICES.

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

Me and my friend Jack-Attack (aka Jackie) were trying to find a place where we could meet up for lunch and catch up, because we have not hung  out since Ive had the baby.

She suggested Dinosaur BBQ. They have 8 locations (7 in NY -Harlem, Syracuse, Rochester, Stamford, Troy, Brooklyn, and Buffalo. 1 in NJ- Newark).

I had heard of the place and had food brought home for me from there but never had the full dining experience…so we went. We ate at the Newark, NJ location; located at 224 Market st.

First thing I want to say: Awesome Music!

The decor was pleasing, the hostess was so nice, and it was a respectfully laid back feel; so you can talk freely at your own volume, but not like sports bar yelling.

DRINKS – I ordered a Dino-Palmer [aprox $7]  (the restaurants variation of an Arnold Palmer) and Jack ordered a Corona [$?].

Although I could see the ice in my glass, my drink was WARM! I like my liquor to be slightly chilled so that was a little upsetting, but it was yummy none the less.

Jackie’s beer was flat! I do not drink beer so I am not sure how much of a sin that is.

On to the most important part…THE FOOD!

We started with a Swag Sampler Plate for 2. Which was about $12.00

It included 2 Fried green tomatoes, 3 shrimp, 2 chicken wings (we had mild sauce), 2 deviled eggs, and 3 sauces (cocktail, ranch, and blue cheese).

The fried green tomatoes were SO DELICIOUS! It was my first time ever having and now that I know how yummy they can be I will try making them myself at home.They were topped with Parmesan cheese.. SO GOOD!!! 

The deviled eggs were too salty, the wings were yummy, and the shrimp was good too. Although 3 shrimp came on the plate and the waiter took the plate away before we could eat the 3rd one.

What we Ordered!

Jackie ordered the Cuban (pulled pork, ham and swiss, with pickles & mustard), from the Pork Bbq section of the menu (specialty sandwiches) w/ a side of mac and cheese. (aprox $11).

She says it was absolutely delicious. The mac and cheese comes topped with a spicy red powder, I do not want to say it is Chili powder because I am not certain.

I had the BBS (BBQ brisket topped with hickory smoked bacon and melted swiss; $10) (sorry there is no image). It was such a nice combination of flavors. I am a lover of swiss cheese and red meat, so I was not surprised at how much I enjoyed it.

My fav parts were actually THE BREAD and THE PICKLES. The bread was soft in the center with a crunchy exterior and the pickles were so fresh. They did not taste like they were soaking in vinegar for ever which is nice, I wonder if they make the pickles on site, hmmm?

It was the perfect quick lunch date totaling about $48.oo. The receipt had this “suggested tip” section at the bottom which we found to be cool. There are definitely cheaper eats around town, but the taste and experience was SO GOOD!

is there food on my face?

Dinosaur is good with me. I will be sure to go back, but next time to a NY location just to mix things up.

Getting My Life Back!

smile

OKAY.

I would be lying if I said there was nothing I wanted to change about my life right now. Life can really suck you into a whirlwind sometimes, and it is easier than you think to get caught up and lose little pieces of yourself along the way. As a new mom, and a stay at home, work from home, live from home mom at only 22; there are times I’m lost in my own routine.

I have decided to get my LIFE BACK!!! with a simple list of 10 easy changes that wont require too much of a fuss. I am posting this list on the blog so that I have NO CHOICE but to follow through.

Here are some promises I am making to myself from today on:

1. No mater the weather, go outside EVERY Day

2. Significantly reduce the JUNKfood. Better eating = Better Mood..so  EAT BETTER & drink better

3. Dedicate an hour to CREATION .. DAILY! (sing, write music, poetry, make up a dance, etc.)

4.Try a new fitness regimen

5. Stop being a brat

6. Be more patient

7.Cut the crap and clean-up!

8. Complete (at least) 2 work related tasks a day (including weekends)

9.Have a Date-Night at least once a week

10. Dedicate time EVERYday to listening to music

I have my 10! I encourage all of you to create your own lists of simple life improvements and STICK TO THEM!!!

I will check in every now again and let you all know how everything is going for me…stay tuned =D

IM NERVOUS EXCITED

I Have Become an Opportunity ALCOHOLIC!

Hello my name is Ms. Get Right and I am an opportunity alcoholic…

drink2

I KNOW that alcoholism is NOTHING to joke about, so please do not take this offensively. BUT nursing has turned me into a drinking optimist.

Now that my little man is eating vegetables twice a day and drinking water, less time is spent living on the breast. Not to mention he is sleeping longer hours and through out the night. And as a mom who breast feeds exclusively (no formula) this means “PASS THE COUVOISIER”.

I know to drink responsibly, and I am still timing my consumption down to the minute; but oh god it feels so good to go out and have a drink or 2 or 3. When the opportunity presents itself I am ALL OVER IT!

Oddly enough I wasn’t a BIG drinker when I was in college but then again I am ONLY 22! As soon as I was of legal age to drink I was pregnant so it feels great to have a legal drink without having to worry about having my son becoming inebriated.

I will admit that going over a year with no sauce has ruined my tolerance level but that has made things a lot more fun for me. Especially when I can say, after a long day, I HAVE DESERVED THIS GLASS!

Toxic Nursery Rhymes

Seems a little dark of a topic to discuss only a day after Valentine’s Day…Oh well!

I love singing to my son. He loves singing back. But have you ever been jammin’ with your junior and really listened to the lyrics of some of the old classics?

*Please note the disturbed looks on the children’s faces as you scroll through.*

For starters:

1. “Its Raining its pouring, the old man is snoring, He bumped his head and went to bed and couldn’t wake up in the morning”

Is he dead? Does he have a concussion? Are there family, friends, or nearby neighbors that will be writing a second verse with a detailed update? Falling and not waking up…Dark!

s1

2. Ring Around the Rosie

Songs with ashes and falling down…DARK!

3. Rock – a bye – baby

“Rock a bye baby in the tree top, when the wind blows the cradle will rock, when the bow breaks the cradle will fall, and down will come baby cradle and all”

Why is the baby in a tree? And if I know he will fall once the wind blows, am I telling him as a threat? Or am I gonna save him? …its weird, and DARK!

s2

4. Jack and Jill

Two young children venture up a hill for water, they both fall and die. Isn’t that just dandy.

5. Humpty Dumpty

I’m pretty sure he dies at the end of his own song.

s3

It is weird when you consider you are singing tragic songs to an upbeat melody, but we have been doing it and hearing them for so long. If you are singing any others and realize “hmmm this is a little scary” please share them!

10 Reasons Moms Are Strange

ouch!

After having my son, I realized there are a few things about myself that even I consider to be a tad odd.

So here is a list of some of the strange things, I’ve encountered being a…MOMMA! (in no particular order)

1. My Google Search History 

-Some of my recent searches include: normal color of poo, poop consistency, frequency of poop, pink rash, face      rash…invisible rash? and the list goes on.

2. When people say “Mom” and they are referring to me.

-I usually do not answer or look towards my mother.. still getting over the fact that I HAVE A SON..which makes me  a MOM! #newmomproblems

3. Setting up a rocker, so that I can use the bathroom or shower when I’m home alone 

4. The euphoria I feel when there is nothing/ no one on my lap

5. Having to start getting ready at 9am for a 12pm appointment 

6. The gallons of another person’s drool I consume, poop I wipe off, and pee I come in contact with a day 

7. That time I cried because my son was laughing at his toys

8. That time I woke up at 7am to assemble a stroller

9. The amount of people that have seen my nipple/breast #breastfeedingproblems

10. The amount of things I can accomplish with 1 hand

As with all of my lists there are 10000 things I could add; but this is a blog, not a book! But if you have some strange, cute, funny things you have experienced…do share!
