If you recall, this week was Eat Real Dinners Week. And guess what? I managed to do home-cooked meals all week long (to clarify, my goal was all work week since that when Iâ€™m the laziest about cooking). And none of my meals this week included a peanut butter sandwich and ice cream straight from the carton. Lots of whole grains and healthy proteins and veggies. Iâ€™m happy; growing BabyHTP is happy. Wahoo!
I thought Iâ€™d celebrate withâ€¦. dinner out and ice cream. Obviously.
We went out to Fern, Charlotteâ€™s new(ish) vegetarian fine dining restaurant. I love Fern. Itâ€™s so tasty and fresh. We started off with the Three Sisters Cakes, which included corn meal and black beans. Very good app to split.
And I got the Warm Kale Salad. Last meal at Fern, the kale was cooked more thoroughly; it was more â€˜massagedâ€™ this time around. Both ways were tasty but I prefer my kale mushy.
After such a delicious vegetarian dining experience, I insisted on taking my sister-in-law to Dairy Queen. She has never been (sheâ€™s from London; apparently, they donâ€™t have the wonder that is DQ in England). I showed her the light with a Reseeâ€™s Blizzard.
Yes, itâ€™s 30 degrees outside. So?
Off to curl up on the couch and get my edit on! Have a wonderful weekend.
