Someone very special has moved in with Eric and me for the summer! My sister!!
She got a job nearby–at my work, actually, even though I won’t be there since I am still in school–so is staying with us for the summer. She pointed out that we have not lived together for somewhere between seven and nine years (depending on whether you count summers when I was home from college the first two years)! I can’t believe that. Living together again is long overdue:). I am so excited to have her around this summer.
On Wednesday night we celebrated by going out in Del Ray, Virginia. We met up with another friend of mine for dinner and, of course, ice cream!
We were going to go to Cheesetique, since I had heard it was amazing, but there was a long wait (on a Wednesday night at 6:30?!?) so we headed down to Evening Star Cafe instead.
The food was a little pricey, so we split some of their “light fare” options.
This dish was unbelievable. Inappropriately named, but the taste made up for it. It was called “BLT Mac & Cheese”…but there’s not really any macaroni in there. Instead, it’s spinach gnocchi with tomato concasse, apple wood smoked bacon, caramelized onions, and triple truffle cream sauce. Sooo delicious! I could have eaten my weight in this stuff.
We also had a speck ham salad with spiced almonds, blue cheese, grilled onions, and candied rhubarb. It was so delicious I shoved it in my face before I remembered to take a picture. I’m sorry!
After dinner we walked down to The Dairy Godmother to get some frozen custard. I had never been here before, but my friend really wanted to try it and I am incapable of saying no to ice cream.
Apparently every person and child in a 1-mile radius from the ice cream shop also decided that a Wednesday night was a great time to get ice cream (or I guess the shop is just that amazing?).
This weekend is my best friend’s wedding, so you may not hear from me for a few days, but I am sure you will all be celebrating your Memorial Day weekend in your own fashion:). I hope you have a great weekend!
Any plans for the weekend? Any Memorial Day weekend cookouts?
-I have wedding stuff all day Saturday and the wedding all day Sunday, and then Monday I am going for a bike ride with some friends! So excited! I hope my legs do a little better this time. We’ll see!
Have you tried any new restaurants lately?
-Sometimes I get in a rut of always going to the same restaurants (we don’t go out much, so when we do I like to go for what I know I love). But lately we’ve found a bunch of new and awesome places. I need to be adventurous more often!
