Restaurant WIAW & It’s My Birthday!!

Today is my birthday- happy birthday to me! I plan on celebrating with some friends at Border Cafe for some delicious Tex-Mex and margaritas.

In other exciting news, I won a box of FiberLove bars from Kaila‘s giveaway! I was so excited to receive them yesterday- they were a perfect early birthday surprise. I can’t wait to try all the flavors- I love FiberLove bars but the supermarket near me doesn’t carry all the flavors!

Two weekends ago my mom came to visit and I got to enjoy a few amazing meals out. First up: Hungry Mother.

My appetizer: pimento cheese. It was to die for.

Entree was fish. Also amazing.

We had a coconut cheese cake for dessert even though we thought we were too stuffed for even another bite!

WIAW #4

Hi everyone! Here for my fourth WIAW!

Okay, so this has nothing to do with what I ate, but I met Temple Grandin! I heard her speak and got a signed book. I was BEYOND excited. It was amazing!

I finally got to try Toro! It has gotten rave reviews from everyone I know and it definitely lived up to expectations. I had the Perro Picante to drink which had gin, grapefruit juice and a spicy pepper simple syrup. We ordered so many dishes but my favorite two were probably the grilled shrimp (Gambas Al Ajillo) and the corn (Maiz Asado Con Alioli Y Queso Cotija). I did not capture any pictures of the food, so here’s me and my lovely dinner date in our post-dinner food comas.

My office is still on our crazy Oreo tasting spree. Birthday cake are hands down my favorite. The peanut butter ones are good- the filling tastes like Nutter Butters. The Mega Stuff- they’re amazing. But I can’t eat more than two!

Here’s a fancy breakfast sandwich invention I’ve been loving. Melted Brie on toast with sauteed kale and a runny fried egg. It tastes so gourmet and takes no time at all to make!
