Hey guys, happy Friday!!
Yesterday, boyfriend and I woke up around 2 PM. I made our dinner reservations for 5:30 PM because I knew we wouldn’t have the patience for a late 7:30 dinner. Boyfriend had to run to the dispensary first thing because we didn’t have any weed. I just read some blogs while I waited for him to get back.
When he got home, he shouted “I gotta surprise for you!” so I sprang up to see what it was!!
Buying the two jars of weed we usually pick up, he was eligible for a deal to add on a box of Mindy’s THC Infused Chocolate and the Even Honeycomb THC Bomb.
The Honeycomb was such a treat. I’m not sure what EXACTLY it is but, I know it’s a very potent and super-concentrated form of marijuana. We only ever get it when it’s on sale because a small amount costs an arm and a leg (for good reason, I must admit).
It tasted lovely mixed in our blunts with the flower and it got us feeling like we were in high school again. Holiday sales are the best at dispensaries.
After taking the above photos, I hopped in the shower and left the water running when I finished so boyfriend could hop in right after. The restaurant was a little ways away so we left around 04:30 PM to make sure we’d get there on time. It was raining cats and dogs outside which made traffic extra bad. No one in Las Vegas knows what the heck they’re doing when there is any kind of precipitation.
When I made our reservations, I had no idea that the restaurant was located inside The Silverton Casino but, we were glad that it was since we arrived half an hour early. There was a Starbucks right across from where we needed to be so we stopped in for a hot latte.
I saw the Cherry Mocha on advertisement so being in the red and pink spirit that I was in, I chose that in hot latte form. I asked for half the syrup, an extra shot of espresso, and almond milk instead of cow’s. I feel like I’m one of those annoying orderers on the memes… yikes, lol.
Boyfriend tried the other latte that was being advertised, Cinnamon Shortbread. He also got half the syrup and an extra shot of espresso but, cow’s milk for him, always.
We sipped on our lattes and chatted a bit. Then, we sat at the slot machines so boyfriend could smoke a cigarette. I finished about 3/4 of my drink before it started to sicken me. I think even less syrup next time would be better…
After boyfriend finished his cigarette it was still only around 5:15 but, I was like “oh, they’ll let us in early… let’s just go check.”
We were happily greeted and immediately seated. At this point, I was already so happy that Mi Casa Grill Cantina’s V-Day Menu had been featured on OpenTable and that we chose it over all of the other ones.
We got to sit in a dark, romantic booth which I truly appreciated. Booths over a table with chairs all day!!
There is no denying that I was utterly impressed with the interior, decorations, and table setting. Their menu was jam-packed with unique eats that we wanted to try but, that’s not what we were there for! Where in the heck was the special Prefix Menu I saw on OpenTable?
Just like during restaurant week, the special needed to be asked about. When our waiter arrived at our table, he didn’t even mention it. He just asked if we were ready to order. When I brought up the V-Day Special, he quickly rambled it off to us… (though I already knew everything included in it, hehe) I jumped in to say, “that’s what we want” before he even finished speaking.
Prior to the waiter even getting to our table though, we received a complimentary bowl of chips with two mild salsas and one hot. I’d say all three were mild but, whatever… who complains about free chips and salsa? 😛
The house margarita officially started off our dinner. Unfortunately, I wasn’t too fond of the tequila used. It was a bit too bitter and dry for my taste so, boyfriend had to slurp it down for me.
Our first course was a choice between a salad and guacamole with chips. You guys know our aversion towards avocados so of course, we both went with the salad– that ended up being topped with them LOL… we had no dressing options and I personally HATE ranch on top of salads…. so I barely ate mine. Boyfriend also finished this off for me.
Our second (and main) course was magnificent, completely OUT OF THIS WORLD. We got a whole fire-roasted corn on the cob, a huge slab of rib-eye steak (with all meat and barely any fat) cooked perfectly at the medium-done stage for me and the medium-rare for boyfriend, a baked potato topped with sour cream, ground chorizo, and scallions, sauteed veggies, AND a big roasted jalapeno.
When the waiter took our plates away he commended us on actually eating our jalapenos. I was saddened (but not shocked) to find out others ignore it.
Last but not least, we were served a beautiful plate of dessert. A hot chocolate lava cake inside of a cinnamon sugar crust with vanilla ice cream at the bottom and a strawberry flavored drizzle topped with fresh fruits and whipped cream.
Chocolate lava cake is definitely one of my top favorite desserts so I was more than excited about this. The crust was crisp and sweet but not overbearingly so. The cake was the right amount of moist and rich and the “lava” inside was delicate and velvety. I have no complaints.
We went to Target on the way home to see if they sold any of those XBOX Game Pass cards but, all we found were gift cards. Me being me, I found a pack of socks and a mini hand sanitizer in the little hot spot right when you walk in (you know what I’m talking about, I know you do) while boyfriend went to the bathroom.
We also needed to get some toilet paper and I wanted to buy a nice planner, too. I spent a little time looking through all the ones on offer until I finally found one that spoke to me. I picked up a new nail filing cube on the way to check out.
When we got home we did “the V-Day things” 😉 then, we tried the chocolate boyfriend brought home from the dispensary.
It was milk chocolate topped with peanut brittle and somewhere, somehow it was infused with 50 MG of THC.
I ate two pieces and boyfriend ate three. There was no trace of marijuana left on my tastebuds at all. I couldn’t even believe it, I’ve never had such a smooth and unsuspecting edible before. It, luckily, didn’t knock us out early BUT it sure did give me the giggles. I couldn’t stop laughing at everything boyfriend was saying and doing LOL.
I tried to find something good to watch but I couldn’t watch anything for longer than 15 minutes on neither Hulu nor Netflix. I finally gave The Great British Bake Off (or something like that) a shot. I know Todd loves that show so I thought maybe I’d enjoy it, too. Turns out, I DO. I watched a few episodes of the first season available and was pretty sad when it was time to turn it off and go to bed.
Today, I didn’t wake up until nearly 3 PM. I was so relieved to finally receive my CORRECT color of nail lacquer from Zoya! AND the delivery guy even knocked on our door to hand it to us. Phew, I thought the day would never come.
I laid in bed with a stomachache (that was totally worth it) until around 5 PM. I took a shower, we smoked a blunt, and then we went to, Karved, one of our fave spots to eat.
We always use our Yelp Check-In to get a free hummus and pita appetizer and they always let us sample their beef soup while we wait for our order. Boyfriend got his usual beef tri-tip sandwich and fries while I tried something new for once!
The rotisserie turkey sandwich!! It had an onion marmalade, arugula, lemon capers, and cranberries on it. There was probably more that I can’t remember, too… it was good but def not as marvelous as my French dip that I usually get.
On our way home, we stopped at Starbucks for our espressos. I pretty much started typing this right away and now I’ve got to go get ready for work. I hope you all have a wonderful and safe weekend! ❤
