Happy Birthday, Logan!!!!!!!!!
My baby brother turns 24 today. Where does time go? I miss this kid oh-so-much and can’t wait to see him in a few short weeks.
Moving on to weekend happenings….
On Friday night, Big Guy took me out to one of our favorite restaurants, On The Square. I started off the night with a delicious watermelon mojito.
On The Square (OTS) has the best salads ever. But I must say, the Grilled Romaine was one of the best I’ve ever had. There was the most perfect balance of salty, crunchy, creamy and downright delicious.
And yes, that’s half a portion. They’re amazingly cool about people splitting salads and they give you your own plate.
Grilled Romaine – Bacon, Blue Cheese, Grape Tomatoes, Green Onions, Buttermilk Ranch, Balsamic Drizzle
We also had another small plate to go with our salad.
Fried Green Tomatoes: Pimento Cheese, Jalapeno Glaze, Balsamic Drizzle
And for dinner, I went with a seafood dish. It was perfectly light. The fish was fork-tender and I loved the hints of lime throughout the dish.
Grilled Swordfish: Dirty Rice, Peach Pico de Gallo, Lime Beurre Blanc
We ate like royalty.
On Saturday, we took a little road trip East. We headed to Greenville (home of ECU) to have lunch with a friend and to hit up a “fancy” grocery store.
We enjoyed a glass of wine and catching up. The above picture is Leann cupping the wine glasses – they were truly big gulps!
After lunch we made a little detour and swung by our old fraternity and sorority house.
Oh the memories.
And on Saturday night, we had tapas at home! I’ll share the recipes this week. I promise.
And on Sunday morning, breakfast in bed!
I made Big Guy a Cinnamon Sugar Crust Cream Cheese and Jelly Danish (on the left) and for me, gluten-free waffles – one with almond butter, the other with Laughing Cow cinnamon cream cheese.
Now it’s back to the grind. Working for another weekend – and this weekend involves hanging out with my sister, Logan’s girlfriend and my future sis-in-law!!!!
