Between yesterday afternoon and last night, I slept 11 hours (but laid in bed for a total of 15 – I was a lazy lady lump). I think I’m catching up on the sleep zombie vortex I entered during the last month of book writing (have I mentioned I’m SO glad it’s over?).
I didn’t blog yesterday afternoon, but was planning to write about our Valentine’s Day dinner at an Indian restaurant called Copper. We went on a double date with Nicole and Isaac.
Dinner ended up being… horrible, actually (and I never say that… my expectations are pretty low, and I’m easy to please)! We had reservations at 8:45 but they accidentally gave away our table, so we waited an hour at the bar to sit – even though I could see a ton of open tables. The manager only comped our drinks and appetizers after we asked him to, and the entrees were totally overpriced ($17 for a veggie entree is ridiculous). After such a seating disaster, you’d think they would give us the best table in the house, but they stuck us in a crowded and noisy room in the back. By the time I sat down, I was so bitter that I refused to photograph my food. ;) It was a shame because it was our special night out. I did, however, tip the waitress 20% because it wasn’t her fault.
But… I came home and slept and everything was right in the world again!
Plus, breakfast more than made up for our lackluster dinner out:
A new spin on the classic breakfast burrito! In the whole wheat tortilla:
- Mashed sweet potato
- 1 egg + 1 egg white, scrambled
- Cherry tomatoes
- Stir-fried broccoli
I’ve decided to take you all up on a little challenge – Eat-In February. This will be much easier because we’re halfway through the month. :) I’ve been eating out too much ($$) and want to nip the habit in the bud, so for the next two weeks, I’m putting a kibosh on eating out. However, I will make the following exceptions:
- Traveling for work tomorrow and Tuesday and will have to eat out.
- Dad’s birthday celebration is on February 16.
Other than that, it’s going to be DINING IN in the Boyle house. And that means lots of new recipes. :) This also means that I’m going to do more meal planning, so we’ll see how that goes.
Have a wonderful Sunday, my dears!
Sorry your dinner experience stunk! On Friday my guy and I went out and even though we got right in and our food was good, we were seated next to a couple who had a toddler who was coughing with his mouth wide open during dinner…it kinda ruined it! I’m not one of those people who thinks kids shouldn’t be at restaurants, but this is a pretty nice place, not a family-friendly joint. And no one likes to hear coughing while they eat. I was bitter that night, too!
I look forward to hearing about your eat-in month!
