Nothing screams summer like a picture perfect tomato from QuarryLaneFarms.

Picture perfect tomato

Completely different from those bland flat tomatoes found at the stores…this is pure unadulterated sweet savory tomato love.

Sprinkle a little kosher salt and enjoy these little gems.

Quite possibly the best thing I’ve ever ate.

Gotta love dirt under the finger nails

Time to get back to the tomato patch!

Dire need of some comfort food, we pulled into Superdawg (@Superdawg) to see our friends Maurie and Flaurie.

Started in 1948, this ancient old-school staple in Chicago has a running 64-year love affair w/ hot dog aficionados across the world.

The Orig Superdawg in Chicago

Having a few minutes to relax in the 100+ degree weather, we opted to grab a few standards.

Proper ordering techniques at Superdawg

Superdawg – $5.50

Not a wiener – not a frankfurter – not a red hot – but our exclusive… Superdawg™. On a poppy seed bun, we tenderly place the loveliest, juiciest creation of pure beef hot dog (no pork, no veal, no cereal, no filler), formally dressed with all the trimmings, escorted by our often imitated, but never equaled, Superfries™. Served with all the trimmings – golden mustard, tangy piccalilli, kosher dill pickle, chopped Spanish onions and a memorable hot pepper.

Magical Superdawg box

So let me make your life easier, repeat after me, “Superdawg dragged through the garden please!”

Superdawg dragged through the garden

Unboxed for you – Easy peasy right?

And you know it’s going to be good when this little magical box can barely stay closed.

Magic awaits you inside

Love it.


Superonionchips – $2.85

Superonionchips – New favorite add w/ my Superdawg

Also these magical love chips made its way into our order. SO. FRICKIN. DELICIOUS.

Side of cheese was a bonus…cause who doesn’t love melty cheese.

(We’re going to have to go back to Swenson’s to see which one is better).

Just realized that we eat at alotta drive-ins, so here’s a pro-tip: If you’re going to a drive-in, STAY IN YOUR CAR.

You look like a bunch of friggin idiots in the parking lot if you’re walking around.

You’re doing it all wrong!

Maybe these fatties were getting out to exercise.

So enjoy those Superdawgs in the vehicle and embrace the “Drive-ins” as they are a part of American history. God bless the USA.

Superdawg is USA

Plopping back into the Cleveland Chophouse & Brewery for a quick bite to eat at 824 West Saint Clair in Cleveland.

Didn’t feel like an entire large dinner order…didn’t feel like an app…so burger it is!

ChopHouse Cheese Burger: 10oz fresh ground beef $10.95 / Add hickory smoked bacon $1.00

Personally, I instantly think your food is really bad when you immediately serve it with ketchup on the ready.

ChopHouse Cheese Burger

Bacon looks pretty.

Macro on the hickory bacon

Ordered it medium…so I guess this is medium.

Also with a place called “ChopHouse” you’d figure they’d tell you where there meat comes from…grass fed, corn fed, etc…

*Ahem…In my rompus room, I tell the ladies where my meat is from….ahem.*

Seemed as if my burger was…well leaning…thicker on one side and thinner on the other: Thus the “medium” doneness.

Thin side = well done / thick side = medium #notcool

Macro shot of the lop-sided patty

Thick = good / Thin = not so good.

thick side - medium

Chef Dave Gutfranski – perhaps a little better consistency in your patty smushing.

Good call on the red onion!

The pickle was room temperature warm and very limp (#TWSS).

But I gotta give credit-the fries were hot, crispy, and cooked well and I enjoyed the heavier kosher salt sprinkling.

Pickle limp / fries crispy

Well…how to sum this up…

1. Please tell your patrons where your meat grew up

2. Thickness matters #TWSS

3. Don’t assume everyone likes ketchup

I’ll be back for the occasional work lunch.
