|« Quiet Weekend||More Questions than Answers »|
The boyfriend and I have had a wonderful weekend thus far. Last night we went to an uptown place called Chino Latino. It's a really fun restaurant/meat market bar (barf, but oh well). It's really loud though and that part I don't like. We shared chicken satay (peanuts bad for him though-type O). And then portabello satay. OMG that is SO GOOD! When you can have grilled marinated portabello, who needs steak (unless you're a type O or B, haha)? I also had a key lime pie martini. YUM!
We then had chicken phuket friend noodles. Rice noodles, bean sprouts, peanuts (uh oh, another bad boyfriend food), etc. There is a really funny t-shirt worn by one of the waitstaff that says, "Ah, phuket". Every time I see it, I burst out laughing. If you are ever in the cities, you must check out this place. It's a lot of fun. Go with a group.
In the morning I made my OCD breakfast (see first blog for more details). Later the boyfriend and I roamed downtown. We shared a nice salad called a Sonoma salad at Marshall Field's Marketplace Cafe on 11th and Nicollet. It contained spinach leaves, feta cheese, strawberries, grilled chicken, candied walnuts, and a light vinagrette. Almost a perfect type A salad and good for him, too.
I also had a Frango Mint Hot Chocolate. One of my favorite indulgences. I guess I'll have to learn to make my own in order to get rid of all the synthetic stuff.
Hmmm.....not much else to report. Just enjoying a very sunny day for once. A good reminder of why I love this city (when it's nicer outside). Later, I'm going to work out with the boyfriend. He is motivating me! Yea!
