It's my favorite day of the week. I don't have to cook dinner since we eat out every Friday. That really makes me a happy camper. I can stay up late and watch tv til 2 am and sleep in the next day.  But I hate it when I have to get my allergy shots every 4th Friday.  It's okay if I can just walk in there, get the shot, and get out, but I have to wait 20 minutes for a reaction.  At least I don't have to wait 30 minutes like most people, since I've been getting my shots for what, 18 years now? I'm making my allergist a rich woman.
Trying to figure out where to eat for dinner between 4 people can be a challenge.  The hubs doesn't want to suggest anything since he claims his brain is fried from work.  But the moment you suggest something, he's quick to shoot it down!  Every Friday, my son always suggests the same thing.  Mexican.  He knows what my reply will be because I'm not a big Mexican food fan, except for La Morena burritos.  But their damn service is so slow on Friday nights!  My daughter always wants anything pasta or shrimp.  I love Elephant Bar but the two guys aren't crazy about the place.  A bunch of picky people if you ask me.  Most of the time, we end up eating Vietnamese because it's close by and it's the last resort when we all can't agree on anything.  My daughter is away in college, so it's down to the three of us.  My son will still suggest Mexican, the hubs will suggest Vietnamese because he doesn't want to think anymore, and I'll suggest all others.  Most of the time, I get my way.  Well, that's how it should be since I'm the cook in the house. 
Vietnamese at Pho The Gioi

The hubs always orders the fried spring rolls.  Frankly, I'm getting tired of them.
I do love their pork chops over rice.  The best ever.
La Morena
Chicharones x Pastor Burrito
Chicharones Al Pastor Burrito?  The crunch in the burrito sounds awesome! How come I never see that on thier menu?  Whoever took the photo must know the cook.
Paradise Chinese Restaurant in South City
The best salt and pepper pork ever!  Can someone please tell me where Paradise Restaurant has moved to?  They're remodeling the shopping square and merchants who have done business here were forced to move elsewhere due to the high lease.  I've eaten at this place for 25 years!  My biggest mistake was not asking them where they're moving to. 
Elephant Bar, DC
I love their Chicken Lettuce Wraps.  My absolute fave!
I fail to see why the hubs doesn't like this place.  He keeps ordering the same thing, over and over again.  Some Jambalaya dish.  Boring.
Fried Calamari.  Another winner at E Bar
Crispy Honey Shrimp.  Nom nom nom nom nom.
See, I'm not hard to please.  Just take me anywhere for dinner, as long as I don't have to cook, and I'm a happy camper!
