Guest Blogger! “Your Hubby is Happy!”

1 Comment

SOOOOO exciting!  Today we have a guest blogger featured on UpsandDownes…None other then…HUSBAND!

Yes, he IS reading a trashy gossip mag! hahah I like to use this picture as blackmail! 😉

So, as you know, Husband and I LOVE us some Food Network and Travel Channel food shows!   We love almost ALL of the shows and it is one channel we actually agree on!  Some of our favorites are:

Throwdown with (Mr.) Bobby Flay

Bobby Flay

Diners, Drive-ins and Dives

Guy Fieri

And our MOST fave from the Travel Channel…

MAN VS. FOOD!

So, while in Pittsburgh, Adam (the host) visits the famous Primanti Brothers!

Primanti Bros has locations is Pittsburgh (with the original location in the Strip District open 24/7! WOW!) and boasts of an expansive menu of pizza, wings, salads and the INFAMOUS “Almost Famous” Sandwich menu.  Well, that, my dears, is where Adam, and now Husband HIT.IT.UP.

Looks gooooood! Fries on a sandy?!?!

Husband was on a day-long business trip to PBG and took the opportunity to sample this Western PA delicacy!  And…he agreed to guest-blog about it!   How great!?!?!?  He was nervous at first (I mean look what sneakers shoes he has to fill :-)) but here is his wonderful narrative and pics!  He asks that I/we “be gentle” for his first blogging experience!  (My comments are in italics for added enjoyment)

The menu board/WALL!

Sorry I didn’t take more pictures, the people in the place were looking at me like I was crazy (yea, get used to it, Buddy) and saying “my wife’s a blogger” doesn’t help! (I think it helps hehe) Anyway, my sandwich was really good (not to mention huge!).  I was surprised by the cole slaw/fries to meat ratio–there’s less meat (in my case corned beef) than I expected.  (Wow, sounds dirty lol) But, like Adam on Man v. Food said, the layers of the sandwich make eating it an interesting experience.  You go through the layers of the fairly mild cole slaw and fries (some hot sauce might have been a good idea–they have it), and then get a little surprise when you hit the crunch, salty corned beef.  And I was pleasantly surprised by how the thick-cut french breach held together.  Overall it was very tasty.  I’d be interested to try some of the other sandwiches, including the “Pitts-burgher cheese steak” that a lot of people were getting.  It was a beef patty instead of sliced or chopped steak like in Philly.  the “colossal” fried fish looked good too.  All-in-all, very tasty and an experience worth having.

He says, “waiting in anticipation!”

Blurry/Flying Sandwich! Husband has a poopy phone.

So I think he did a GREAT job!  I even stopped making smart-alec comments when I realized his food description is a million times better than mine!  Will we maybe be seeing a Mr.UpsandDownes.com soon?????
