Hi friends! How the week going? We’re halfway through it! Do you have the day off for Veteran’s Day? Both my mom and I have it off from school and work, so that means it was time for our weekly get together!! We had a great dinner last night together and I knew exactly what I wanted to make for breakfast. But first, do you guys love photo booths at the mall like I do?! I have quite the collection =)
So first up, we decided last night for dinner we wanted to go to the Ground Round. They have a lot of neat stuff, and it’s one of the main supporters of our college sports here. I am really trying to step out of the boat and try different things when I go out to eat because I always seem to lean towards similar things. Do you do that? I decided on the Orange Grilled Salmon, which was described as “Cajun-grilled salmon basted in orange marinade”. I am not one to eat oranges plain—it’s about the only fruit I don’t like, but this was fabulous! I really wish I could remake the marinade, but so many good flavors I couldn’t quite pinpoint. I also got a baked potato with salsa, some steamed assorted veggies, and garlic bread that I didn’t have room for.
Mom got her favorite—chicken fajitas. I think they are quite entertaining because they come completely sizzling to the table and are so loud!
Then we skedaddled over to the mall to walk off our meal. I really wanted to look for a pair of high-heeled black leather boots to add to my
ridiculous expanding boot collection, but I think I will wait it out till Black Friday sales! I also got my Christmas tree which is a white one like I’ve always wanted! I am doing the whole thing red and white candy cane themed. I love not being traditional! Of course the whole shopping shenanigan made us hungry again, so we ventured where next? Hint..
Coldstone Creamery! I used to go here every day last year, but now that I make my own ice cream, I rarely do, which is ok because it saves a heck of a lot of money! But Coldstone is a fun treat. I decided on Love It size Sinless Sweet Cream with a scoop of Coffee ice cream and the needed blueberries and cinnamon sprinkling—odd but wonderful!
Mom tried the seasonal Chocolate Peppermint, which looked like dirt to me, ha-ha! She said she didn’t taste the mint too much and it’s definitely a chocolate lovers flavor!
We came home, watched Housewives of Orange County and other pointless TV, we laughed, and chatted. Then we went to bed and woke up to a gorgeous 65 degrees today! I seriously must be dreaming =) Tonight I am seriously pooped from another busy and fantastic day—so stay tuned for Day 2 tomorrow—there’ll be a fabulous breakfast, lunch, and dinner—plus recipes!
