The Lincoln Lawyer

healthy snacking of cottage cheese, dried fruits, and cashews.
Lunch was tomato basil soup with a turkey pita sandwich and roasted potatoes on the side with lots n lots of ketchup :-D
We went out to dinner last night at a cute little French restaurant. The ambience was dimly lit and romantic.
We started the dinner w. some bread and butter. I know the butter was packaged but it was salty and delicious!
My grilled calamari appetizer with rocket leaves and tomatoes. Simple and very tasty!
T's fried Camembert cheese with sweet jelly
I was craving a good steak w. peppercorn sauce. The steak was very tender and flavorful. Of course the chips were crispy and amaaaazing!
T had the ribeye and roasted potatoes.
Dinner wouldn't be complete without a crepe with chocolate sauce and vanilla ice cream. The crepe was a bit too stringy and doughy but we still ate it all up :-D

After dinner we saw The Lincoln Lawyer:
Marisa Tomei, Matthew McConaughy, Ryan Phillippe, John Leguizamo, and Josh Lucas. I couldn't have asked for a better thriller with an all star cast. MMM mmm!!

Breakfast fuel this morning:
Citrus fruits=vitamin C

Shallots and mushrooms omelette on top of half a whole grain bagel.
I also tried crumpets for the first time EVER! I didn't actually realize the phrase "tea and crumpets" actually referred to an actual crumpet. I thought it just meant a biscuit or something! Crumpets are like doughier versions of an english muffin and a lot tastier. It takes on the flavor of what you put on it so we put on butter and strawberry jam. Yummy!

Afternoon agenda: some family time and relaxation. Happy Saturday!!
