I totally dropped the ball today!
I meant to tell you guys that today was National Walk @ Lunch Day!
Sorry about that one…but I say we can unofficially make tomorrow the same and call it even 🙂
That said, I decided to drop my things after lunch and head outside for a walk on what turned out to be a beautiful day!
I was so happy to get outside!
I followed my walk up with 20 minutes of yoga and by the time I showered Chad was home and we were back out the door for one of his co-worker’s going away parties.
We sipped ice waters and enjoyed the night then headed out to a little date night dinner at The Liberty:
There was no outdoor seating but I actually wasn’t too heartbroken over it because the night had definitely cooled off quite a bit! Plus, the atmosphere inside was pretty great 🙂
More ice waters to get the meal started…
Then I went with a glass of red wine (Cabernet)
It was quite good and the cheapest one on the list! Whoever says price buys quality of wine?! You can find some pretty good blends for a darn good price!
I started with the simple garden salad (mixed greens with toasted almonds, apples & herb vinaigrette)…
…which was fabulous. I was a little nervous about the herb vinaigrette because I don’t tend to love things that are super herb-y, but it was delicious!
For our main dishes I went with the Cedar Plank Roasted Wild Scottish Salmon, farro risotto, mushrooms, young carrots, organic spinach:
The farro risotto was amazing! The whole time I was eating it I couldn’t stop saying “this is so good!” while simultaneously thinking “I have to buy farro to cook at home!”
The salmon was also perfectly cooked – crispy on the outside and perfectly flaky and tender on the inside.
Chad went with the Kobe Slow Braised Beef Short Ribs (with garlic mashed potatoes, oven roasted tomatoes, baby green beans & cabernet sauvignon reduction) which looked absolutely amazing (and judging by what was left on his plate afterward, they were):
Overall we really enjoyed the meal. The service was impeccable, the food was beautifully presented and delicious and the atmosphere was awesome.
Definitely a place we’ll be visiting again!
We’re all curled up now watching season 1 of Felicity on Neftlix. I always forget how good this show is…
