I unwound with a great long walk this afternoon. Shout out to mom, who is wise as an owl!
I had mild nausea all day today, so I chugged some OJ before my walk and took a Great Harvest Temecula Trek bar with me to nibble on if I needed some fuel mid-way through. [I did.]
Matt and went on a date night this evening. When we want to rekindle the flame, we go one of two places:
Sonoma Wine Country
Brixx was founded in Charlotte and we spent many-a-night devouring their wood-fired pizzas, great salads and pints of beer in college at the Birkdale location. We completed the MBA club and probably went every Friday night our sophomore year. It remains one of our very favorite restaurants, and it’s so cool that a franchise opened in Cville last year!
We had a coupon for a free app with the purchase of two pizzas arrive in the mail today, and once I had Brixx on the brain, the thought of anything else for dinner made me nauseous. Yet I could imagine myself eating a Brixx spinach salad [it has a special taste + dressing that was appealing] and pizza.
Good timing that the Duke – Carolina game was on! Sadly the game did not go in our favor 🙁
I didn’t order my own beer sampler like the good old days – but Matt enjoyed his
But my club soda was pretty bubbly, so I didn’t miss much
We shared a spinach salad our server was kind enough to put in two bowls – I ate every leaf!
And then dove into these!
A Spicy Shrimp (we always get this one!)
And an Americo, which sometimes replaces the Wild Mushroom, Mexican or Quattro Formaggio. We only ate half and have a good amount left for Monday’s lunch/dinner!
Also included the Barracks Road coupon book that came today was a BOGO coupon for Ben & Jerry’s. Guess the shopping center’s marketing strategy worked, because the coupons got us in the door and spending money at both places!
I had a Bonoroo Buzz and Matt, Cookie Dough.
Although we had a coupon, I was shocked to read on the menu that a SMALL CONE costs $4.13! I thought ice cream cones were supposed to be $1.50 or something!? I must be stuck in the 80s. That makes my $9.99 pint to Jeni’s all the more appealing when you think you can get 3 good servings out of it…
LOST, then sleep!
