Good afternoon blog world. It’s Sunday and I have to say it’s been kind of a sleepy one so far. It’s been a busy and fun weekend and it’s left both the Hubby and I a little tired today. Yesterday after my race, I had a second small breakfast – I was hungry after that run. I had some pineapple Chobani yogurt with granola and some light cranberry juice.
I may have also had a cup of coffee after my snack. I was feeling kind of tired after the race. But I also drank a lot of water throughout the day. The Hubby and I lazed around and watched a movie before getting ready for our night out. During the late afternoon I snacked on a Larabar.
I loved the Peanut Butter Cookie flavor – yum! But when don’t I like foods with peanut butter?
Around 6:00 p.m. we headed out for a quick bit to eat in our neighborhood. We went to Sharz Cafe, one of my favorites in our area. The Hubby doesn’t have the same love for it as I do, but I always enjoy the food. I also like the “Twilight Dinner Special” they offer. If you arrive before 6:30 p.m., you can eat a 3-course dinner for $21.50. A pretty good deal in my book. I have to apologize – I did not take any pictures. The restaurant is very small and Hubby got especially uncomfortable when I started to whip out the camera. My 3-course meal was:
Appetizer: Mesclun Salad with balsamic vinaigrette
Chef’s Special: Spinach Fettucine with wild salmon in a pink sauce
Dessert: Arborio Rice pudding with dried cherries
I loved everything! As I always do. Do you like dinner specials like this or do you prefer to have the entire menu from which to choose? The Twilight Dinner Menu was quite extensive, so there were plenty of options for me.
However, our late-ish dinner meant we cut our commute to the show pretty close, we arrived at about 7:58 to the theater. We raced from dinner to the theater on 45th and got there just in time. For Hubby’s birthday in November, I bought tickets for God of Carnage.
It was a really funny show. It was pretty short, about 90 minutes with no intermission. It was only the four characters on one set, but it was hysterical. I really enjoyed it and recommend it. We tend to always see the musicals, but this was a nice change of pace. Do you enjoy non-musical shows?
After we left the show, Hubby went to meet up with one of his guy friends that was having his Bachelor Party that night in the city and I headed home. I tidied up a bit when I got home and went to bed. But when Hubby rolled in at 3:15!! he woke me up. So we both ended up sleeping until 9:45 this morning – very late!
Now it’s time for laundry and cleaning around the house. I pretty much have to do laundry every week or the pile gets out of control. Do you have a weekly laundry schedule? Do you do it on the weekends or during the week?
I also wanted to thank Meg for passing along the Beautiful Blogger Award to me. I did receive it from Katherine a little while back, so I won’t bore you with seven more random facts. But I feel honored to receive the award from Meg – I love reading her blog! I added a new section on the right side of the page to display my award. 🙂
Have a nice Sunday everyone – back to the grind tomorrow. Boo!
I came across your blog today on the Happy Runner….you’re a great read!
That sounds like a fun date night! I don’t have a set laundry schedule. I probably should- it would make the procedure less annoying!
Peanut butter cookie is one of my fave larabars! I haven’t been to the theater in years. I would probably enjoy a non-musical show though. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
Sounds like a fun show! I still have yet to go see a show ON Broadway. One of these days I will!
Laundry…. we usually do on Sundays. But yes it does get to be a bit much when I’m working out regularly…. The problem with working out a lot, LOTS of laundry!!
I used to be so good with laundry, every Sunday…but as I’ve gotten older somehow I’ve become okay with letting the laundry gather. Like so many things I need to get back into a good routine!
I’ve heard so many great things about the show, I hope to find time to see it!
