Last weekend, I got spend a fun evening with my middle child. He and I both love classical music, so this season, I bought a 4-concert series to the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. My son and I selected three performances for our series, and then for the fourth, I picked one I knew my husband would love (it was called Cirque de la Symphonie and involved acrobats, jugglers, etc. to help entertain him!) :)
This past weekend we got to enjoy Brahms German Requiem and also a world premier of American composer Jonathan Leshnoff's Zohar. Both were performed with the outstanding ASO Chorus (I usually choose concerts that involve the Chorus).
Before the concert, we ate an early dinner. But we ordered a small pizza that turned out smaller than we expected. My son probably could have eaten the whole thing. LOL
So afterward, I offered to feed him again. Where do you go at 11 pm in downtown Atlanta with a hungry college kid??
Delia's Chicken Sausage Stand!
Go now and check out their menu. You will be drooling. Then please come back. I have more to share!
This is the second time my son has taken me there, and I love it. They have such a cool menu. And organic, locally sourced, handcrafted chicken sausage made into a variety of dishes.
Here, he's eating the Chickie Philly Classic. It told him to eat up, because those green peppers were probably the only vegetable he'd have all week! (He's not my healthiest eating child.)
I went in the place thinking I would have dessert (saving that item for last). But I got sidetracked when I saw the sweet potato pancakes and chicken sausage links! Once I ate those, I couldn't even consider dessert.
And the real draw for my son? THE CAKE SHAKE. Milk and sugar and vanilla with...a whole cupcake thrown in!! Red velvet was his choice. These are so good! Next time you want to make a milkshake, toss in a whole cupcake, icing and all. You'll be amazed! (Yes, you guessed it. That's my recipe for this week.) :)
Next time you're in Atlanta, check out Delia's. There are several items on the menu I now want to try. One is The Double D Delight: a Krispy Kreme doughnut, sliced, grilled and filled with cherry cream cheese, topped with a chicken sausage patty. Oh. My. Stars.
