i’ll admit it. i turn trips into food side-trips.
we golfed at traditions yesterday in wallingford and since we were so close to ted’s, i said “let’s go!”.
my expectations were pretty high and although the burger was good…i wasn’t wow’d.
the meat is steamed in these little tins. the cheese is steamed. the homefries are steamed. everything was just okay - a tiny bit non-flavored.
fries would have been nice but all they had was homefries, which were too oily and in need of slat.
there’s lots of free topping and you can make the burger any way you which [unlike places like louis in new haven].
overall, i was disappointed. i guess.
i’m not sure what i expected but the hamburg was not what i expected, especially after how many times i’ve heard about ted’s.
oh well, give it a shot and you be the judge.
S.O was a doll and got my pancake mix from whole foods. however, the mix didn’t turn out so delicious [looks delicious, but tasted weird].
he bought me a substitute box of the real stuff and i’m having that for dinner tonight!
i like many syrups.
we went to lyman orchard for a round of golf on saturday.
i played like garbage but rewarded myself with an apple dumpling.
on sunday, i met up with my friend and we briefly checked out the parade.
downtown was a buzz and every restaurant was packed to the max:
we had burgers for dinner on sunday [the main squeeze made them!] and they were really good!
i haven’t given up my duties as chef but it was nice to get a break from cooking.
