146.2…A Steak of Greatness
Thanks for all the well wishes for our anniversary!! I was so happy all day yesterday!
When I was getting ready for our night out, I enjoyed a glass of wine.
Then we were off to Ruths’ Chris Steakhouse. I swear my mouth was watering the entire drive over there.
We were seated right away and the hostess put rose petals all over our table. I thought the evening called for a glass of champagne!
I ordered the Wedge Salad for my appetizer. I LOVE this salad. It’s so simple but the lettuce is so fresh and I love their ranch dressing (which I substituted for the blue cheese).
My husband and I split the filet mignon. I like my steak medium rare and he likes it medium so he cut all the ends off for himself. We ordered the creamed spinach and potatoes au gratin.
I think their creamed spinach is the best I’ve ever had. I’ve never tasted a better one. I took a couple bites of the potatoes but I’m not a big potato person (unless they’re French fries) so I let the hubby dominated that one.
I don’t eat a ton of steak so I really enjoyed every bite of this one. I also had a side of shrimp which I had to send back because they were barely warm. Ick. They took the shrimp off the bill and hooked me up with a glass of wine. Thanks! That’s what I call awesome customer service!
We choose the cheesecake for our dessert and they brought it with a candle and on a plate that said “Happy Anniversary”.
Their cheesecake is spot on. I planned on only having a couple bites but I couldn’t help myself. :)
I was pretty darn full when I got home so I just rolled myself into bed. What a great night!!
Breakfast this morning was a waffle (that I toasted too long) with peanut butter and some watermelon. I’m finally making a dent in my watermelon collection!
After taking the kids to the bus for camp, I went to Zumba. The newer instructor teaches it on Wednesday and I’m not super excited about her class. We don’t move around enough for my liking so I don’t burn as many calories (according to my heart rate monitor) as I do with the other instructor. Good thing I’ll be at her class tomorrow!
Lunch was leftover Chicken Cashew Stir Fry with brown rice:
Then I started to clean out my closet. Another time consuming job. Like my bathroom, there’s a whole lot of stuff in there! I made a good dent in there today. I was able to free up a couple of shelves where I put my jeans (they were hanging before).
I picked up the kids and came home for a snack.
Tortilla with deli chicken slices and mustard. I’m going out to sushi (yes!!) with the girls tonight and I didn’t want to go starving. I can eat sushi like nobody’s business and do not need to go there famished. I’m sure I’ll do a lot of damage there as it is!
Do you fold your jeans or hang them?
Do you eat a snack before going out to dinner?
