Since the BOY and I were total bums last weekend, I insisted that tonight’s date night involve leaving the house. There are a few movies out that we want to see, but the times didn’t work. We went back and forth about what to do and finally decided on going out for dinner. I have been talking about sushi since our new friends in St. Kitts recommended a Chinese/Japanese place nearby and it was easy to get a reservation this afternoon. We drove 10 minutes down the road to TL’s. The restaurant was busy, always a good sign, and the food looked amazing.
The menu was full of options ranging from Chinese food to sushi. The TV flashed pictures of some of the specials and although the Chinese food looked fresh and delicious, I had to feed my sushi craving. I ordered a glass of Argentinian Malbec, and the BOY ordered an Asian beer.
We started with an octopus salad which was and spicy and fresh. For dinner, I ordered a special roll called the Snow Angel (I thought this was fitting for the winter weather) that had avocado, crab, eel, and salmon, and the BOY and I split a BBQ eel roll as well.
We were both really happy with the sushi that we ordered and it really was a great meal. I can’t wait to return to try some of the Chinese dishes. When we got home, we decided to play a game. The BOY through me for a loop by suggesting LIFE. I can’t say that I have played this game since I was a kid and even then we used to just drive the cars around the board and collect people. I was really more of a Sorry or Trouble fan.
While we played, the BOY and I snacked on the White Chocolate Puppy Chow that I made for my office’s Family Winter Party tomorrow. One of my coworkers suggested that I make it again after my Treat Day because it looks like snow. And the BOY declared it absolutely addicting (and I must say I agree)! At the end of the game, I had a husband, no kids, a luxury car, and a yacht. Doesn’t that sound like fun?!
I’m a bit sore after my double WOD this morning and happy with my sushi-filled tummy. I guess it’s time for bed.
See you in the morning!
