Saturday, July 18: You know that feeling when your Groupon voucher expires, and you have the amount you paid to expend on the restaurant and you want to rush and use it before your forget? Well, that hit me and we ran over to London Curry House for a snack after purchasing Sachin's new car (hurrah!). We shared the Lamb Sheek Kabob and Bombay Fish. Well, there's a reason I didn't take a photo...I was a bit disappointed. The flavor just wasn't there, especially in the fish, which was coated in a way too heavy batter. The curries ordered around us looked a bit better, but we just were in the mood to have a quick snack. Not that it was horrible, but, I don't think I anticipate a return trip here.
Sunday, July 19: Went to happy hour at Ruth's Chris. This restaurant is a steak house, but surprisingly their happy hour menu is filled with enough non-steak items to make you happy. I stuffed my face with a Crab BLT with Zucchini Fries, Seared Ahi Tuna, and the Spicy Lobster, lightly fried and tossed in a spicy cream sauce. The crab bake BLT was a bit too mayo-y (is that a word?) so the garlic toast it was built on was getting a bit soaked...one of my biggest sandwich pet-peeves. But, the lobster did not disappoint, per usual it was fantastic!
Monday, July 20: I went to the deli at my work for lunch today. It's sad when they know your order, even though I probably only go about once a month (at the most). Turkey and Avocado on Sourdough bread with onions and hot peppers (yes, I take a breath mint afterwards). Delicious!
Tuesday, July 21: Lunch today was pan fried and braised chicken thighs with chick peas, onion and a little Cabernet Sauvignon. I topped the dish with some pomegranate seeds for added freshness, and a side of broccoli, to get those veggies in!
Wednesday, July 22: I'm not sure how many of you have heard about Graze, the healthy snack mail delivery company, but today at work a colleague of mine had a few snacks from Graze to share. Peppercorn Pistachio and this Thai Chili snack. I was debating whether to try Graze out, and I don't know, after having the snacks I think I'm convinced to try this out! I'm trying to watch my sugar intake, and they even have a box specifically targeted for whatever you're looking for - low sugar, low calorie, sugar treats, etc.!
Thursday, July 23: I use to spend a good amount of time in Baltimore, when a few college friends moved up their and I have to say it can be a pretty fun city. Mind you there are some unsightly parts, but this article makes me rememer a lot of fun things to do in Baltimore - including #4 :)
