Well, us party animals were out all day & night yesterday!
Ha. Just kidding. Ryan golfed all day while I got some major housework/IIN work/workout/wedding work/play with Murphy time in. It was probably one of the most productive Saturdays I’ve had in awhile. Speaking of accomplishing tasks…I updated some pages on the ole blog too! Be sure to check out my updated recipes & wedding pages when you get a chance!
Like I mentioned yesterday, it was Ryan’s turn for date night this month. We could only do part 1 of our date night (the second part is a distillery tour!) but that was fine with me since it included food!
We headed to Asiana which is located in Pewaukee, WI, which is an asian cuisine steakhouse with a hibachi grill section. Ryan had been here before for a work meeting & kept raving about it so I was pumped to check it out.
I have never experience a hibachi grill so I was interested to see how it works. Apparently, they give you free saki shots via a squirt bottle…but that’s besides the point 🙂
Our dinner started with the miso soup & traditional salad.
I pretty much inhaled this. I was starving!
Then our chef came out and started with his tricks. How do begin to practice something like this? Do you just practice and…drop things until you finally figure it out? Someone teach me!
I ordered the shrimp & scallop combo dinner. Gah, I heart seafood.
A kid in our section refused to eat any of his vegetables because “they are disgusting.” I almost leaned over to steal his plate. Almost.
Everything was so delicious. How do Asian restaurants make their stir frys so good? HOW?! I wish I could make a dish at home taste this good!
We came home to watch American Idol & The Office since Ryan has been gone all week. The Office just isn’t the same anymore, is it?
Today’s adventures included a trip to American Furniture to look at bed sets. Another round of feeling like a grown up, for sure. We think we found a set we like, now we just need to grow a money tree to pay for it!
(The believed winner!)
With the dresser & mirror. Plus 2 night stands & an additional tall dresser. Ah, if we only made the big bucks.
After schmoozing with the furniture salesmen, it was time to head to the best place on earth. In other words, Costco.
Our food loot:
Sweet potato fries (my splurge), Multi-grain crackers, black beans, plain greek yogurt, almond milk (yup, 3 1/2 gallons…), Kashi Go Lean cereal & grapefruit cups (Ryan’s splurge).
Avocados (less than a $1 each!), 24 farm fresh, organic eggs (swoon), bananas, baby portabellas, blackberries, cuties, spinach (I forsee lots of smoothies in my future…) & the clorox wipes. Again.
And then a bunch of non fun items like tissues, drain-o, lightbulbs, dishwashing liquid (to last like, the rest of our lives) etc.
All in all a great weekend, especially since the weather is SO NICE. I’m sorry, I have to keep saying it. Tonight on the menu, Turkey burgers!
Question: Did you do any grocery shopping this weekend? What did ya get?
