Where did the weekend go?!

Have you entered my AMRAP giveaway yet?! The prize was just updated!!

I’m pretty sure I missed the weekend.. is it really Monday already? I’ve been on the run since we got back from Baltimore, weekend included, but at the very least I was able to take some time Saturday evening for a little date. Drinks + dinner + ice cream. That’s pretty much our perfect equation these days.

We had to check out a sports bar around the corner for us to see if it would suffice for Ravens games. It’s pretty tough to get the Ravens out here but there are a few bars that will happily put on any game you request. [We didn’t go for the game yesterday, though based on the way they played, neither of us were too disappointed to have stayed in.] For dinner, we tried a new-to-us Thai restaurant, Sukho Thai [<– $2.50 glass of wine for happy hour!]

Thai Fresh Roll

If a Fresh Roll is on the menu, consider it ours!

Thai Chicken Larb Salad

My go-to chicken larb salad.

Thai Coconut Curry Beef Noodle Soup

The winner! Coconut curry beef noodle soup. So much flavor and just so good.

Fun story.. the server brought out the hot sauces and peppers with the fresh roll. Of course Nathan went straight for the peppers and I decided I’d try a small piece of the Thai bird chili. It didn’t start out too terribly spicy, but after a few minutes, both of us were practically sitting in silence trying to figure out how to get rid of the burn. My eyes were tearing, Nathan was starting to break a sweat.. I just kept telling him not to react because the staff would absolutely be laughing at us!

We survived the pepper incident but decided ice cream would be a necessity to really be sure to get rid of the heat. We shared a munchkin-sized creme fraiche ice cream with pear caramel from Smitten. No time for pictures but it was as good as it sounds! We finished the night with a bad movie—Two Guns—at home with some popcorn.

Yesterday was a lot of running around again but we did sneak in a quick lunch date at Gregoire before hitting up the grocery store. The feature item of the lunch? Potato puffs.

Gregoire Potato Puffs

Instead of the plain old mashed potato filling that I almost expected, the filling has a really creamy, almost cream-cheesy flavor. Gregoire is known for their potato puffs so we had to try them!

After all of the craziness of the past few weeks, it was nice to have a few quiet minutes to end the weekend and get our lives back on track.

  1. I love how many peanuts came with those spring rolls and oh my yum to that coconut soup!!!! I’m laughing at the story about the spicy-ness sneaking up on you. I can see it now…trying to play it cool, even though you’re overheating. Eek! Hilarious to me though 😉
