Grammie and Pea are staying an extra day! Hooray!
I spent all afternoon yesterday getting a much needed hair color and cut and delivering a meal to a new mom friend. We all then got dressed and headed out on double dates. Grammie, Pea and Mazen went to Citizen Burger for french fries, and Matt and I went to Red Pump Kitchen for a quiet romantic dinner : ) Each group had a blast!
Matt and I started with cocktails – a Lavender Bellini for me and the Jefferson’s Julep for him.
We had the perfect table by the open window and waved at the other group as they walked by!
I had a kale salad with sweet potato chips to start, and Matt ordered the beef carpaccio. Both tasted so lemony fresh!
Our main entrees were a HUGE hit – soft shell crab for Matt and grouper for me. The black on my plate was fermented black garlic and was sooooo delicious!
Our dinner was over too fast, so we went to 22 Brix, a little wine room and satellite tasting from for Ankida Ridge Vineyards. We enjoyed tasting the flight and ordered a glass of port to share.
…over a game of checkers! Matt is the smarter gamer of the two of us, so I was quite happy to beat him in my first game in probably 15 years!
We met up with our friends and hung out on our porch into the night. A very happy Wednesday!
We just finished eggs, toast, mango and coffee for breakfast and are gearing up for a run and possibly a shopping trip!
