Buttons Restaurant - Addison, TX

IMG_0679.JPG

If you have spent any length of time on this blog, you will know I am a foodie through and through and although I spend a lot of time in my closet sized kitchen creating and recreating recipes, I also enjoy eating out, so I thought I would share some of my favorites with you. Not so much a review, more of a "I went here, I ate that, I loved it, so I am sharing with you".

A few weeks back, I got a chance to dine at Buttons in honor of a friends' going away dinner - I have been meaning to check this place out for awhile, so when I got the invite, I rsvped immediately and not even a flu/allergy combo was gonna keep me away.

I went on a Tuesday - which happens to be the same night as the swing dance class night; there was also a private room where a comedy open mick night was happening - did not check it out. We were seated quite close to the dance floor, so I got a chance to check out some of the dance moves - I will have to plan a return trip to pick up some dance steps. The atmosphere is super laid back and they have music 7 days a week - I have never really experienced the dinner with music vibe before and I have to say I quite like it and the music was not too loud so you could still carry on conversations.

Now to the favorite bit --- the menu is packed full of soul food - everything from Ox Tail, Cat Fish (not on menu - special) and chicken and waffles. All the reviews I have read about this place recommended the chicken and waffles, so I had to give it a try. As amazingly delicious as it was, it still comes second to the chicken and waffle from the whiskey cake. Next time, I think I might try the oxtail. The staff was super nice and courteous. On our waiter's recommendation, I tried the pineapple upside down martini (and I was not dissapointed) - I think it might have also killed off some of the germs assaulting my immune system at the time - so win / win.

Ok, there you have it --- my first of many visits to Buttons captured in words. I will report back  when I return to try the oxtail.

The Weekend Update #12 : Afternoon at IKEA and a new Chair

HAPPY SUNDAY

Pretty laid back weekend in these parts. A visit to IKEA to pick out a desk chair and a very greasy pizza slice were the highlight of my weekend.  If you remember my summer to-do list - one of the items I wanted to accomplish was picking out new furniture - including a new chair for my work desk. I picked up the first piece of furniture from IKEA over the weekend and spent part of the weekend putting that together. Here are some pictures from the weekend's activities, including  the almost perfect assembly of my chair (there might have been an instance where I had the right arm rest of the left side - but who cares about that). I know, chair assembly is not the most interesting blog topic - but it more an encouragement to you - if I can assemble an IKEA purchase - so can you.

This was the first thing that derailed my search for a desk chair. I think I have kitchen envy
