Happy Saturday everyone! Is there anything better than a Saturday? It's by far my favorite day of the week- no work, and no work tomorrow to think about!
Eric and I are at the Cape and it's a gorgeous day. Can you tell I'm in a good mood? That's about to come crashing down though since we (Eric, my parents and I) have an 11 am meeting with the coordinator at our ceremony and reception place. I know I joke about wedding planning being a pain in the butt, but there are times that I truly do not enjoy it. To me it's just another thing to fight with people about, and personally I enjoy harmony. Oh and also, I wouldn't call myself a detail person. I know we are going to have a great wedding whether there is mouth wash in the bathroom basket, or small green flowers in the centerpieces. Just me though.
Last night we went to one of our favorite restaurants for dinner- Roadhouse Cafe in Hyannis. They were celebrating some anniversary so bottles of wine were 28% off (maybe their 28 year anniversary, haha?). We order a bottle of Petite Syrah.
I am usually not a red wine fan, but I enjoyed this wine, and the antioxidants it was providing me :) Since we got there a few minutes before six, we got the early bird special which means $3 off our entrees and a complimentary house salad. I don't do salad, but my appetizer was the bread, SO good...
My mom and I decided to split the Scrod. I am so glad we decided to split because they gave us our own plates that had perfect sized portions. We even got our own small baked potato! How nice is that?
The whole thing was delicious. When I got home I decided to make banana "ice cream" using a frozen banana. I literally just stuck a frozen banana in the blender and then added a few chocolate chips. I got the idea from Chocolate Covered Katie, but I wish I could take credit for it.
This was probably 150 calories and satisfied my dessert craving. I have to remember to get some bananas this weekend and freeze them for more of this. Next time I may try putting in some peanut butter or almond butter. Or maybe blending the chocolate chips into the banana. The possibilities are endless...
Okay guys, what is everyone up to this weekend? What do people do when they don't have wedding stuff to think about constantly? I forget :) I kid! I do have a normal life still I swear. After our meeting Eric and I may go ice skating and we have a reservation at a delicious Japanese restaurant tonight. Yum.
