Start of an Awesome Weekend…
Started off the day with french toast.
I’ve been craving it ever since I bought this bread! [Great Harvest Cinnamon Chip]
I just sliced two pieces of the bread. Then made a quick mix of egg, milk, vanilla, cinnamon.
Melt some buttah’.
Dip the bread in the egg mix and crisp in the pan. Go crazy with toppings.
Accompanied by a cup of Mud.
Topped with melty peanut butter, syrup, toasted coconut and blueberries.
Katrina [my bff from Jersey] finally flew in today!! Yay!
We got her settled at my apartment and then went to Southpark mall. She had to return something at a store so we just spent some time browsing through the stores and window shopping.
We went into Anthro. I now want these giraffes.
Judge me if you want, but they are fabulous!!
We set on a late lunch since we had a late dinner planned. We went to try a new restaurant! The Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar!
I love their sister restaurant Eez, so I was excited for this.
We got a few plates to share.
The Cowfish Chili Cheese Fries.
Blackened Ahi Tuna Nachos.
Soy Vegan Roll. This was so intriguing and so refreshing and light!
Included: Mixed greens, beets, mango, cucumber, gobo root and sesame dressing
The sky looked awesome as it was starting to set.
When we get together we take a nauseating amount of pictures.
Here’s the start of a photoshoot….
Don’t judge us. We’re like sisters from another mother!
Tonight we had plans to meet my Aunt and Uncle for dinner for restaurant week!! I actually wore heels for the first time in ages [ow].
We finally got a reservation at Upstream in Southpark.
I really enjoyed this place. I stupidly forgot to take pictures of the ENTIRE meal. Sorry, I was so caught up in the food and conversation that I had a mind lapse in judgement.
Here’s a recap of my meal:
First Course: Coconut Crusted White Shrimp – chilled vermicelli noodles, cucumber, mint sesame & yuzu
Second Course: Miso & Tangerine Marinated Corvina Seabass – blue crab & scallop dumplings, clamshell mushrooms & blue crab broth
Dessert: Dark Chocolate Mousse – Amaretto cream & hazelnut praline
I did take a picture of dessert.
It was awesome. I love chocolate moose. I also had a few tastes of everyones meals [short ribs, creme brulee, beets].
We both felt like we had a food baby from today. So relieved to put on sweatpants.
Don’t you just love Katrina’s shirt?? [P.S. she’s an R.D.]
Time for beddy by. Tomorrow will involve food baby round #2. I think we’ll be hitting up the NoDa area!
Oh I almost forgot!! I won Kath’s giveaway today!! I won her homemade peanut butter and a CUISINART!! I am so shocked and excited! I never win anything!! Thanks so much Kath!! You are awesome!
Now the question is what to make first……Ideas? Suggestions??
