St. Patrick's Day was spent in this historic downtown area in the next town over. It was cold and it started to pour. We waited an hour to eat corned beef & cabbage at this nice restaurant. My friend brought his own food coloring so we could have green drinks. It was a pretty enjoyable evening, but like I said, exhausting.
They sat at us near the bar and we decided on this fiesta cheese fondue. They gave us bread, veggies and apples to dip in it. I had never thought of dipping bread in melted cheese, but hey, it was free. And delicious. My trainer will be quite angry at me for eating what could be the worst dinner on the planet health-wise. Every calorie was *so* worth it though. For my free drink I followed with my friends ordered--a dirty martini. I had never had one (and now I know why!) before, and this would be a good chance to experiment. It. was. disgusting. Okay, it wasn't *that* bad, but I learned that I definitely do not like olives. And there were several blue cheese stuffed olives swimming in the drink. Overall it was a great chance to try out a new restaurant and I definitely recommend their happy hour specials.
Friday was a very long day. I think the week had just finally worn me down. It was the boy & I's two year anniversary so we headed to Grillsmith for some meat and drinks. I had won $50 to Grillsmith for photoshopping a pic of me and my guy and adding their logo sometime around Valentine's Day. Anyway, this was one of the best meals I've had in a very long time. Filet Mignon with blue cheese and covered in a wine sauce. Ahhh I could die. It made us very sleepy so we had an early night.
Saturday was the first gorgeous and semi-warm day of the year. It was a definite beach day. I hung out at a tiki bar for a solid nine hours, and I have the sunburn to prove it. Sometimes you just need days like that to recharge. I felt great, but my dehydration is setting in...
(And, yes, that is a pirate ship. It leaves from the local marina and is, in essence, a booze cruise)
Today I've managed to do absolutely nothing and I'm loving it.
I wonder what this week will bring. Hopefully warmer weather and maybe some good news.
What did you get into this week?
P.S. Cute picture of the day --
