A “Real” Friday.
I can’t remember when I had a “real” friday. Usually my week is just starting on friday. However today I feel like everyone else in the working world.
I have off tomorrow!! Although I do have to work sunday [I’m ignoring that whole situation for the moment].
Work wasn’t so bad today. Service was slow, which was a nice change of pace, sort of.
Here’s some salads of the night [New and Old]…
Winter Citrus Salad: Watercress, frisee, arugula, pickled red onions, grapefruit and orange segments, dried cranberries and apricots, candied walnuts, citrus vinaigrette.
Loved all of the colors in this salad.
Baby Carrots: Baby carrots with a honey orange butter glaze. Garnished with fresh tarragon.
These are always a crowd favorite.
Mixed Baby Greens Salad: Baby spinach, arugula, shaved fennel, shaved radish, oven dried tomatoes, toasted pine nuts, dijon dressing.
Crab Cobb Salad: Crab, romaine lettuce, grape tomatoes, red onions, avocado, creamy dill dressing.
This was the first time I used a dill dressing for this salad. I think it was pretty awesome!
Grilled Zucchini Spears: served with optional lemon aioli on the side.
Antipasti Misto: Iceberg lettuce, julienned ham, salami and pepperoni, green olives, croutons, shaved parmesan and red wine vinaigrette.
Definitely one of my favorites.
BBQ Shrimp Salad: Romaine lettuce, bbq spiced shrimp, grilled corn, grape tomatoes, chili lime dressing.
The south has a huge infatuation with shrimp. I don’t get it.
Since service was slow, I was definitely lacking some energy.
It’s times like these where all you need is a little treat to make everything better.
Cue ice cream!
Half vanilla, half chocolate. Topped with candied pecans. YUM!
I don’t keep a whole lot of ice cream in my apartment, so it’s always a treat!
Kitchen update: 90% sure my kitchen will be getting ripped apart Monday. I have mixed feelings about that. It’s awesome to get some much needed [and overdue] kitchen upgrades. However, it’s SUCH a mess! I miss being able to use my sink and cook and experiment with different foods at home! Keep your fingers crossed it all works out well!
I’m about to pour myself a heaping glass of wine and hit the sack. Sometimes an after work night cap is just what the doctor ordered!!
Oh, by the way. Still taking applications for a personal masseuse! Just throwing that out there!!!
See you all tomorrow!!
P.S. Anyone know of anything exciting going on in Charlotte tomorrow??
