The Giants Win! + Eating Roast Beef Sandwiches in Brooklyn

Well it wouldn't be a Giants game without a nail-biting, white knuckled, pit-in-the-stomach end!

 

I am soooo happy that the Giants won last night! We celebrated with our friends, ate a lot of delicious food (including blue velvet cupcakes & pizza dip) and stayed up way too late for a Sunday evening. Which leads me to wonder...why isn't the Superbowl on a Saturday night?! Either way, it was a blast! And now I'm on the hunt for a Giants Superbowl tee.

On another note, I also really enjoyed the half-time show. To be honest, I was underwhelmed by it going in since I just don't think Madonna is relevant right now (aside from her new, horrible thing that I won't even call a song). I was so hoping that Madge would sing Like a Prayer, and I was over the moon when she did...and that Cee-lo Green joined her!! Love him!

Oh and what about the commercials? Anyone? I was a little disappointed by them. I always love the Budweiser-Clydesdale commercials, and Doritos had some good ones. Nothing too exciting though for me!

Anyhow, we had an amazing weekend all around. On Saturday, we drove out to Brooklyn to have a little city exploration day with Kimberly & Nick. Food was the name of the game for our day-long excursion. Obviously.

We started the day at Brennan & Carr, a small (and old) restaurant in Sheepshead Bay.

hot beef, anyone?

When we arrived, it felt more like being in a Wyoming restaurant, with wood paneling and antlers on the wall. Brooklyn, who?

I love the old school vibe...nothing fancy, just a small dining room (or a takeout window) and a minimal menu. Known for their roast beef sandwich, we all had to try this one! Each of us opted for the knife and fork style...meaning, you guessed it, it's so wet from their famous beef broth that you literally need a knife and fork to eat it. The beef broth and roast beef were fantastic! Salty, tender and delicious.

We loved it!

The day didn't end there. Since we were so close to Coney Island, we had to take a ride on over since neither Shaun nor I had ever been there. But since this post has gotten long enough, that's a story for another time!

I hope you all had a great weekend and have a fab week ahead!

Questions of the Day:

What did you think of the half-time show?

The commercials?

What's the best sandwich you've ever had?

 

psst...I'm preparing for the end of the world over on The Peach & The Pit today!
