Dining Out on Memorial Day Weekend
Hellooooo down there!!!
Coming atcha this morning while drinking out of my HUGE new coffee mug Shane brought me back from Orlando while on a business trip.
And he says he doesn’t support my mug collecting habit
Morning, friends! Happy Sunday Are you a little happier because you know tomorrow’s a holiday?? It’s actually not a day off for me because none of my clients are cancelling, but I am getting them all trained in the morning tomorrow so I can enjoy a whole day of bbq-ing and movie-going! Hopefully tomorrow is nice like they’re predicting, because the rest of this weekend has been such a rainy one for a holiday weekend!
After training a couple clients yesterday morning, I grabbed a Gloria Jeans iced coffee and met my friend Heidi at our favorite nail place to talk nonstop for an hour while getting pedicures. It was perfect and now all is right in the world again However, all that pampering really worked up an appetite!
I have been having this lunch ALL the time lately. I don’t think I’ve shared it with you yet! I just microwave a lightly beaten egg + 1 egg white, place it in a warmed La Tortilla Factory tortilla and douse it with nutritional yeast and hot sauce. And a green smoothie on the side is the best way to wash it down
I still felt hungry after this meal, though, and reached into the freezer for one of these bad boys:
A Girls Scout PB sandwich cookie. x’s 2. But after I still felt snacky! So I resolved I was just dehydrated and chugged a bunch of water.
I was right!
The rest of the afternoon involved cleaning and mattress shopping (we need a new one and one for our guest bedroom.) Oh, and this:
On Saturdays, a local liquor store (ok more like warehouse) has a wine tasting in the afternoons. We try to take advantage as much as we can We left with a couple good bottles as well as my current favorite beer, but that’s another post for another time
A little while later, we were in the mood to go out. So we changed and headed out to one of Normal’s most popular dining spots, Distihl.
It’s a microbrewery with fabulous beers and even more fabulous food! Despite the fact that we were at a microbrewery, one drink called to me: the pomegranate ginlet:
With PAMA liquor, Rangpur gin, and lime, it boasted all of my favorite flavors in a drink! It was delicious, not too sweet at all, but one was enough! I stuck to water the rest of the night
For an appetizer, we ordered the beer battered asparagus:
Judging by how quickly the plate went from full to empty, I’d say we thoroughly enjoyed this app
And for the main entrée I ordered the warm salmon and potato salad.
This is a salad?! That’s what I thought too. A delicious buttery salmon filet on top of zucchini, red pepper, onion, and fingerling potatoes, all dressed with a sweet and spicy honey mustard. I must have it again.
After having a drink (water for me) at the bar with a friend, we made a stop by coldstone for dessert and then called it a night – a very fun night!
Well I’m headed out for a run before the wind picks up and the rain heads in! It’s the epitome of grilling out this weekend, but all it’s been doing is raining! Poor people and their plans
Are you doing any grilling out this weekend?
Do you have any mattress recommendations? We aren’t sure if we want to keep our own and buy a new one for the guest BR or move ours to the guest and get a new one for us
Have a good Sunday!!
