Hey guys and gals, I hope your week has been off to a great start! 🙂
Yesterday, boyfriend and I went out to eat at Pho Bistro for dinner. I knew we had been there before but, I couldn’t remember when so I looked it up on my blog! The last time we went was all the way back in January! Nearly a whole year ago now!
We ordered Spring Rolls and Garlic Chicken Wings for our appetizers (just like we did the first time we went lol).
Boyfriend had their Vietnamese Noodle Salad which came with grilled pork and egg rolls (with no other options or substitutes available).
I went with their Beef Stew with bread. The bread was the highlight of my life. SO SOFT and toasty.
I even asked for a second loaf after I finished my first one. The stew was alright but, I could taste the MSG lingering on my tongue after every bite. Blech.
When we finished up our food, we had to go to the dispensary but, our car started getting smoky… boyfriend had to pull over and check what the issue was before going in to get the weed. He realized the radiator cap had flown off and was broken so it wasn’t going to stay put for long. On our way home, we had to stop at AutoZone to buy even more coolant and also a new radiator cap. Then, of course, we made our usual stop at Starbucks.
When we got home, I put together the outline of my Recipe Reviews that I posted last night then, I did my makeup and hair. When I finished getting ready, I wrote in the details of the post and published it. I headed off to work around 9:30 PM.
I had a few drinks while I was there. I didn’t really want to but, I had to make my clients happy. 😛 At least I didn’t get too drunk and I don’t regret anything!
I went home around 3 AM.
Today, we woke up at like 2 PM. I showered right away because I wanted to go grocery shopping. I was looking up recipes for awhile until boyfriend realized he works tomorrow and the next few days after so, it would’ve been pointless for us to get food that would just sit in the fridge until his next day off on Sunday.
We decided to go out to eat instead but, first we stopped at the UPS store to drop off some Christmas packages and cards. 😀 Then, we went to the American Gypsy Cafe. We tried to go here once before but, they had gone through a fire and were shut down that time.
It was set up so fancy in there but, the atmosphere didn’t match. It was so eerie, quiet, and empty. We both felt like it was illegal to talk too loudly. We were literally whispering the whole time…
For our appetizer, we were able to get free hummus with a Yelp Check-In… and my gosh, am I glad that it was free. It was maybe the worst restaurant-hummus I’ve ever hard.
They also offered a free salad to us!
But, I almost wish we hadn’t accepted the offer. It was not to our liking at all. It had a weird winterfresh flavor to it with a mix of sweetness? I don’t know. Just not good at all.
Boyfriend ordered the Shish Kebab which came with marinated beef chunks and grilled green peppers and onions.
All of their entrees include the rice and roasted tomato, too.
I got the Rack of Lamb.
The lamb was probably the best out of everything but, even that wasn’t so great. A little over-seasoned, in my opinion. I do appreciate that they were meaty pieces and not all fat, though.
As usual, we went to Starbucks for our espressos after we finished eating. When we got home, I turned on the computer and an error message popped up twice. Boyfriend checked the back wirings to see the cats had loosened one of the cords. When he plugged it all the way in, the computer turned on properly but, it wouldn’t connect to the internet. I restarted and shut it down a few (hundred) times but, it still wouldn’t register. When I finally gave up, boyfriend asked one of his Twitch buddies for help and he fixed it in .2 seconds. I am so grateful. 😀
I guess I’m gonna go get ready for work now. Good night, loves!!
