Journal Entry #230

Hello beautiful people. πŸ™‚ I hope you’ve all had a nice week and a great start to your weekend!

Yesterday, my Aunt made it to Vegas around 4:30 PM so I asked if we could reschedule our dinner date to 5:30 PM instead of 6:40 PM. Luckily, she agreed!

Boyfriend and I woke up around 1 PM and thought about what we wanted to eat for the week. I found a couple lists filled with sheet-pan recipes and just chose three of those. I quickly wrote up our shopping list and then, we headed out to Sprouts to buy our groceries.

When we got back from the store, boyfriend put the groceries away and rolled a blunt while I took a shower. When I got out, it was almost time to leave for… Hot N Juicy Crawfish!!!

My Aunt, Uncle, and two cousins were there a little before us… (because we are always fashionably late…) I felt bad because they couldn’t get seated without us but, we were super fortunate that there was no wait at the time we got there! (It would have been a different story if we had went at the originally planned time). We sat down at a big table right away and looked over the menu.

Boyfriend ordered one of their combos called “The Drool.” It came with 1 lb of shrimp, 1 lb of crawfish, a dozen Andouille Sausages, corn, potatoes, a 1/2 lb of snow crab legs, and then a side order of Cajun calamari.

He chose the Juicy Cajun seasoning at an ‘extra spicy’ level (which was in actuality maybe a little less than a ‘medium’ for us).

For me, I went all out and got a whole pound of snow crab legs and a 1 1/2 lb whole lobster…

I chose the Louisiana seasoning at a ‘medium’ level and it was tasty but, not at all spicy. I could’ve even went for the ‘extra spicy’ without any stomach troubles. πŸ˜› As you can probably guess, photos were no longer able to be taken after the food arrived. All of our hands were a mess!!

Except my Uncle’s, who doesn’t like seafood and only had some mozzarella sticks…

He took this shot of us all eating ^!! πŸ˜€

When I devoured my beautiful lobster tail and crab legs, I helped boyfriend eat some of his shrimp and crawfish. When both of our bags were completely empty of seafood meat and full of shells, we paid our tab, waved and hugged goodbye.

We went to Starbucks and got some iced espressos. Then, we went to the dispensary where we both missed our shot at a discount again. I was still thinking about going to work but, after writing my movie reviews and doing my hair and makeup, I felt it was a little late. We went to our favorite bar to see if I could perk up with some alcohol but, I was just not feeling in the mood at all. It was nearly 1 AM anyways and I just wanted to go home and eat the chicken tenders and tater tots that we had in our freezer.

Boyfriend had this bright idea to get MORE alcohol at Von’s on the way home. I agree with everything when I’m intoxicated so I was more than excited to go, lol. It was funny because we weren’t the only already drunk people getting more booze.

Since all of Vons’ bottles were locked up, we went to look around for our mixers first. I got pineapple juice, like always, and boyfriend got his Coca-Cola. I also found this big ass smoothie in a bottle like OJ comes in. I hope it’s good because I have been craving one since I read Anastasia’s and Rossy’s recent posts filled with recipes for some of their faves.

I would have loved to try all of them but… nothing I make ever turns out exactly right so I was ecstatic to find an already made smoothie I could stick in my fridge. I forget what brand it was by but, I am going to get up and look right now. πŸ˜› Okay, I’m back.

I should have guessed it was Simply. That’s why it looks like OJ!!

Oh! And right when we entered Von’s, boyfriend stopped at the claw machine game and won this super cute and soft, fluffy ducky!! Whom I’ve creatively named, Ducky. πŸ˜‰

When we got home, boyfriend immediately preheated the oven and made us a round of cocktails. He set the chicken tenders and tater tots on a sheet pan and popped them into the oven. I had my work clothes at home to wash them (usually they’re all in my locker) and I had taken out this lacy black lingerie dress with purple ribbons to wear as PJs for the night since it’s slightly big on me, I never wear it for work anyways.

I went into our bedroom to slip it on and boyfriend came in before it was even all the way past my bum… we almost burnt our tenders and tots!!! They were a bit crisp and definitely browned but, everything was alright to eat. πŸ˜€ We tried this new BBQ sauce for dipping and it was quite good.

We turned on a movie but… it was lame so we picked a different one when we finished eating. It was also lame so that lead us back to entertaining each other again instead… we shortly went to bed after round two, smoked a blunt, and knocked out right away.

Today, we both woke up at 3 PM for round three. πŸ˜‰ Then, boyfriend got up to do the dishes while I read a couple blogs and chapters of The Art of French Kissing.

When he finished the dishes, we smoked a blunt and then, I went to shower while he started on cooking dinner. The food was done shortly after I got out.

I watched half of the newest episode of Star on Hulu while I ate but, had to pause it when I finished to go to Starbucks. We got our iced espressos, as usual, and now, here I am… typing this!

I’m gonna go get my booty ready for work now because I am 100% going tonight.

Be safe but, have fun!!!

  1. Hot n’ Juicy sounds sooo scrumptious. I don’t know how you could resist all that seafood- but I hope they had good mozzarella sticks are least for your Uncle! Great picture of you all- look like you’re having so much fun!

    OOhhh how do you like the smoothie?!

    Aw yay for winning sweet Ducky! Those claw games are challenging!

    1. Do they have any seafood bag places like this near you?! It was definitely scrumptious. πŸ˜€ He said the mozz sticks were good but, we still had to dog on him a little, y’know!?

      I am trying the smoothie for the first time right now! It tastes nice but I just like thicker smoothies better. πŸ˜›

      & I can never win those claw games but boyfriend has a knack for them!!

      1. I bet we do !! I will have to look it up! We actually have a place that JUST opened near our apartment complex called “Boiling Crab” .. I have to see if it’s something similar!

        LOL- you definitely gotta. I get how people don’t like certain foods, but gosh seafood- It is my faveeeee I just don’t understand how someone could pass that yumminess up!

        1. Ohh! There’s a Boiling Crab or two here, too. I read some comments & reviews on Hot & Juicy saying that they preferred Boiling Crab! I think they’re pretty much the same thing!

          I have met so many people who hate seafood or just refuse to even try it! I don’t get it either lol!

  2. Y’all’s food looked SO freaking good. I swear all I dream of since moving to AK is fresh seafood but nothing compares to the boils we used to have when I lived in the southeast 😭😭😭

  3. Oh man, your lobster tail and crab legs look and sound so good! I’m totally craving seafood now, haha. LOL at your uncle eating mozzarella sticks!

    How sweet your boyfriend won you a ducky from the claw machine! True love, lol. Love the name πŸ™‚

    How do you like the book you’re reading? I’ve heard good things about it on a few other blogs!

    1. Mmm I could eat lobster & crab legs every single day. It’s still hard for me to believe that my Uncle doesn’t like seafood lol!

      Hehe, so glad you like Ducky’s name. πŸ˜‰ I don’t know how my boyfriend always wins something out of the claw machines!

      The book is alright! It’s a little slow and boring for me. πŸ˜›

    1. Ah it’s so hard to explain! I feel like all the seafoods have such a different flavor. In texture, I’d say it’s like a shrimp but, more dense & chewy.

      I looked it up and I guess people describe it as “a mix of shrimp & crab legs but with a mineral taste.”

  4. I never understand when people don’t like seafood! It baffles me, lol! Like…how can you NOT?! It’s the best! But people have strong opinions about seafood either way, that’s for sure! I’ve never had crawfish though and I’m not sure I could after dissecting one in high school biology. >.<

    1. Right?? My ex-boyfriend would say “I don’t eat anything from under the sea” & it made me so angry that he wouldn’t even try anything!!

      You dissected a crawfish in biology? That’s so cool lol. They taste yummy though!! Forget about what you discovered. πŸ˜‰

      1. That’s so weird! I’ve met similar people and that sort of picky eating is just frustrating. Like, WHY.

        It was gross. >.< But then again, I was the one who thought all the dissections were gross lol. Yeah maybe someday I can get past that and try to eat a crawfish! πŸ˜‰

        1. It really is frustrating to be around picky eaters. Just because I like EVERYTHING or at least, trying everything once. πŸ˜› I always thought the dissections were cool. I can’t really remember them that much now though!

  5. I’ve never been to a crawfish place not sure that I would because I hear its pricey and it also looks like it’s a lot of food lmao. That’s so great you got to hang out with your auntie a bit.
    So cute that you won that little duck. I never attempt those claw machines because it’s really hard to win I swear they’re rigged lol.
    And thanks for the mention love!

    1. Lol yeah, they are pretty expensive!! But hey, the more food the better in my eyes. πŸ˜‰ It was def nice to see my auntie!!

      I think SOME but not all of those claw machine are rigged lol. I was so excited when he got the ducky!! ❀

      Of course, babe!!! ❀ ❀

        1. I think you guys could finish one of the big variety bags by yourself! Boyfriend almost did but I had to help him eat it all at the end.

          Isn’t seafood a bit cheaper over there since you guys are so near the ocean??

          1. Alex would be the one to help me, my appetite has decreased so much as of lately, while I’m glad, that means I can’t eat a lot of food despite how good it is T_T LOL
            I find it still a bit pricey but I guess it depends on what it is and where you buy it? each place has different prices and sales.
