Hey guys! How was your weekend?
Because Will has been working a lot more consistently during the week, I always look forward to the weekends because I know that we’re in for a treat! This one was no exception—although at first we had plans to travel over to Tampa on Saturday evening, things changed and we decided to FINALLY see The Hunger Games instead. I’m pretty sure we’re two of the LAST people to see it too
Regardless, we both thought the film was great for a book adaptation, and that they left out just the right amount of details to make for a solid movie. Not to mention that I loved Jennifer Lawrence! (..Sorry Kristen Stewart..)
Our best friend (the Yelp app) guided us to Sushi Lola’s, a hidden gem in the Winter Park area. I began with a refillable pot of green tea and Will rolled with his usual beer starter.
My inner intuitive eater ( ) was sending me clues that I wasn’t AS hungry as I usually would be for dinner, so I stuck with a few of the smaller options to satisfy my belly: The miso soup,
cucumber salad (loved how different this was!),
and a California roll. Will, on the other hand, decided that he was hungry enough for two entrees so he got some type of crazy roll with almonds (which I don’t remember the name of)
and a miso ramen soup.
Ohhhh yeahhhh. I tried the broth of this baby and it was great! Is it weird that I didn’t know there was such a thing as ramen outside of the prepackaged dry rectangles?
Saturday is to sushi as Sunday is to…
Drew is a mutual friend of ours, who also happens to be Rachel’s cousin (my first official trainee). Last year the three of us would meet up for froyo & fellowship nearly every single week, but the conflicting schedules of this semester have really prohibited us from keeping up any sort of consistency.
Needless to say, our catch-up date was long overdue!
I loaded up a vanilla, red velvet, and cookies & crème froyo bowl and topped it with berries & chocolate chips.
Afterwards we headed over to Whole Foods so I could pick up a “forbidden food” of mine (more on that later ), and caught an awesome $5.99 deal on a pound of fresh wild-caught shrimpies. As simply as that, dinner was decided upon!
For any new Itty Bits readers out there, Will & I used to have a routine of making homemade hibachi at least once a week. Before we knew it, the signature dish grew to be JUST as good as the restaurant variety, if not better! Lately we’ve fallen off of the bandwagon, but last night’s shrimp steal brought potential back into our hearts.
And of course we had THE sauce 8)
Oh, the sauce.
Just as perfect as I remember…
On another note, my Diva Cup got a lot of action in this post.
On another another note, I need to stop referring to it as a Diva Cup.
A bit to think about: Tell me about your weekend!
