I had a bunch of errands to run and yesterday somehow felt really busy. No post because I never actually ate any meals, mostly I took random spoonfuls of cookie butter and stole salt and vinegar chips from the husband.
Instead of a recap I’ll share a few of the highlights –
#1 – I met up with a few friends and over coffee we finally figured out our room situation for FNCE – the AND’s yearly conference. Three (maybe four!) of us are going and we managed to find something safe and affordable.
#2 – My easy errand took me to the mall. I am loving the “birthday month” deals that have been rolling in. I’ve wanted this Sugar lip duo from Fresh for years and Sephora just gave it to me for free!
#3 – While I was at the mall (see #2) I drank something that has changed my life forever. Peanut butter frozen hot chocolate from Dairy Queen.
Since the first sip it’s basically been all I’ve been able to think about. I’ve already started trying to figure out how to recreate it at home.
Today was fairly lame on the food fruit. The things I ate were all great but I didn’t eat all that much. Quality over quantity?
A small bun with ~1 Tbsp evoo for dipping.
Juicy green pear.
Bottle of Classic Green Tea from Honest Tea.
Dinner was extra exciting because we made a quick turnaround on a recent Groupon purchase and headed out to eat.
We were both impressed with Sakura Sushi. The service, speed, and food were all good. The menu boasted a bunch of fun rolls (like the “Buffalo Roll” with spicy fried tuna!) but Adam and I both stuck with what we knew.
I got a green salad with ginger dressing to start.
And a Spicy Crunch Salmon Roll.
Deep fried salmon / mango / tempura flakes / spicy sauce.
Yum! It wasn’t the easiest thing to eat like a lady, but the taste was worth the mess. I obviously could have gotten something healthier but this was a nice compromise between a plain roll and the cream cheese stuffed, whole roll tempura options that I was eyeing.
We had to spend a little bit more money to use up our Groupon so the husband and I split a dessert.
Coppa Mascarpone – a chocolate cream, followed by a smooth mascarpone cream, topped with amaretto cookie crumbs and chocolate curls.
It was fun way to end the date.
Adam and I have skin checks across town tomorrow morning and I am determined to get in bed so that our wake-up isn’t brutal. I’ll be dreaming of peanut butter frozen hot chocolate!
