Not really the best time to visit Indianapolis (January is very cold and snowy/icy), but always great to visit Sarah; our oldest daughter and Jeffrey – Sarah’s boyfriend. The drive from Greenville, SC to Indianapolis is a lot shorter than to Massachusetts, so that was good. Especially since there was a storm forecasted to hit soon after we arrived. Glad we beat it, and it really was not as bad as it could have been.
Settling in after our long trip to Indy.
Sarah is a great cook. She made us a delicious dinner – a succulent chickened mushrooms cooked in a cast iron skillet and finished in the oven with a very tasty pea risotto. It was so good!
Good thing we do not have to deal with snow often in Greenville. Snow is great when it falls and is nice and white. However, give it time and soon it will be a mess all over. Nah, done with it.
One of the hardest things for any city where the temps dip below freezing is their homeless population. There are many places for the homeless to go, but I am sure some fall through the cracks.
Saturday lunch at La Mulita. A small but very nice taco place in N. College Ave. We started with some beers and an excellent guacamole. It has a perfect balance of salt, lime and serrano peppers. I just wish it was double the size… 🙁
Bethe ordered one of the specials – the Pozole. A hearty soup with deliciousness all around it. It had a rich broth with shredded pork shoulder, hominy corn, radishes, cilantro, cabbage and serrano peppers.
My dish was a couple of very nice shrimp tacos that were one of the biggest tacos I have had. Spicy shrimp, chipotle mayo, red cabbage, guacamole, cilantro, green rice (parsley taste). Very nice.
Sarah ordered tacos al Pastor – slow roasted pork, salsa verde, pineapple, red onions, cilantro; with a side of Cowboy Potatoes.
Some of their features for the day…
Usually I do not add pictures with me in them, this is one exception…trying to capture the main elements for the Pozole soup for my wife to make.
Sarah, my wife and Jeffrey!
Side view of The Carmel Palladium (also known as The Center of the Performing Arts). We drove there as there was supposed to be a German Festival going on. Unfortunately we missed it by one day.
We did not bring our skates so we just watched for a few minutes, then it got too cold.
Jeffrey and Sarah!
We then stopped at Sun King brewery. A excellent micro brewery great choices to please a variety of tastes.
Playing some Trivia Pursuit was fun. Jeffrey was really into it.
My wife making breakfast potatoes, she loves to cook for the girls. Jeffrey and I never object.
Sarah is quite the cook. She loves to experiment, but also has a good size cookbook library she uses.
On the way back we stopped at a Peruvian Sandwich place. We got a Lomo Saltado and a Jamon del Pais sandwich…ah, so good.
