When I got home last night from work I had some time to kill so I prepped for today’s consumption. After the prep, I was still waiting for my dinner date and ate a half a sammie.
White bread, cheese, and a small piece of chicken leftover from the rotisserie. Glad I ate this because an hour later i was still waiting. I got to eat dinner at 830.
Henry Chose to take me to Kyoto. I didn’t realize until after we ate that they pride themselves on being Creative. I’m really glad it was a “good” kind of creative. Don’t mess with my food (Kraft singles and all!)
The minute I knew we were having sushi I ordered a Japanese beer. When I took my sushi making class the chefs were adamant about telling us Sake is not meant to accompany sushi because its “rice on rice”. Beer is better because it allows you to fully taste the little subtleties in your sushi. Whatevs.
I’m a big fan of maki rolls so i ordered the Maki Combo…ironically the only thing in here with avocado is the California roll. Still yummy though. It was a lot of sushi. ALMOST too much. I said almost.
AFTER my sushi arrived, the waiter brought out my dish water, i mean Miso Soup. I happen to be a big fan of the stuff but am amazed at how different miso soup tastes in every restaurant!This soup however tasted like dish water. So I was happy to leave it untouched. Even my boyfriend who is not a picky eater refused to eat this soup… yuck.
Henry had a mountain of chicken pad thai. It was enormous. The poor guy sat there eating and didn’t even make a dent in it. We took the rest home. Might have been his brekkie… I don’t know.
For the third day in a row, I am having grits. This bowl was perfect. However, I didn’t eat brekkie until 1130 because while running out of the house I forgot to brew my coffee and got a triple venti skinny cinnamon dolce latte kept me satiated all morning!
Then, feeling snacky and weak, I succumbed to the temptation I keep on my desk. M&M peanut. *sigh*
I also had a green tea craving… Love me some green tea!
For lunch today I had the most delectable salad! I haven’t had a salad, homemade, this good in a LONG LONG time! Butter lettuce, crumbled bleu cheese, dried cherries, sliced almonds and a balsamic vinaigrette. Super yum!
