The End of the ‘EndPosted: June 20, 2011
Weekends ending is always bittersweet. I love the freshness of the new week, but I hate saying goodbye to soffe’ shorts and lax schedules!
I don’t know about you all, but weekends should begin at noon on Fridays like they did in university!
The Coach dropped by my office Friday afternoon and surprised me with a box of sushi from our favorite downtown sushi restaurant.
You know someone is your best friend when they remember to ask the sushi chef to add avocado to your sweet potato tempura roll!
Right after work, I rolled by apartment to puppynap Haley and set off on the two hour drive to my grandparent’s house to celebrate Father’s day.
She’s too quiet of a travel companion!
One thing I love about my weekends home is that my mother and grandmother insist on putting food in my face nonstop. I’m sure not one to complain!
In the small town where they live, a restaurant opening is a big event! Of course, in my world, a new sushi restaurant is a huge event, so naturally I convinced my mother to head to lunch with me!
We split a plate of vegetable tempura to start, and we both were impressed by the assortment.
Sweet potatoes, rutabaga, zucchini and broccoli all got the batter-fry treatment.
We also plowed through (well…I plowed through…she gracefully consumed) four different vegetarian rolls: shitake mushroom, sweet potato, avocado and an asparagus/cucumber/avocado combo.
I’m not entirely sure if I had enough sushi this weekend!
Regardless, here we are back at Monday. There’s lots to do – I better get crackin!
What was the best part about your weekend? Anything you ate ridiculous amounts of?
