scenes from the weekend.

stash. yummy food. girl's night. thunder vs. lakers (kobe, i am not a big fan of you right now, probably never will be). oscar party. lots of fun with the friends.

Saturday, February 26, 2011 taste buds.

as many of you may know, i am actually a picky eater. i would like to say that it is mostly a texture thing but lately seth has been pointing out that i don't really like to try things. that is why about 3 weeks ago i got talked into trying sushi. i actually tried it a long long time ago and spit it out. but this time i loved it!

i don't think i could eat just any sushi but the college roll at O Asian Fusion is delish! it had tempura shrimp in it which added another element to the texture which was very pleasing.

on another note- i am a big fan of Sweet Basil and pretty much swear by their pineapple fried rice. it is hard to find anything that compares. The first time we went to O Asian Fusion I must have missed it on the menu but to my great surprise i discovered they do have pineapple fried rice! it comes with shrimp and chicken and it is the biggest heaping pile of rice i have ever seen. it was no Sweet Basil but definitely up there. i will tell you that it came with raisins. i only like raisins of the chocoloate-covered form so i wasn't very happy when they joined us for dinner. raisins are not listed on the menu as part of this dish so condsider yourself warned.

lastly i would like to encourage everyone to try O Asian Fusion. i know that it is in an old pizza hut but once you get inside all you'll be able to say is how you can't believe it used to be a pizza hut! the food is wonderful and you get to watch the sushi man prepare your sushi if you sit at the sushi bar. they have a full bar and huge menu of yummy things to check out.

today i've been married for six months. being able to say that i am married at all still seems so surreal. but that it has now been six months seems crazy. it has gone by so fast but also has felt like forever (in a good way). love you husband.

just a little update. i know i said a while back that seth and i were going to try a new recipe once a week. well, we are failing royally at this.

seth's birthday was (wow almost 2 weeks ago) february 8th. i made him biscuits and gravy for breakfast.

i made this for him 4 years earlier (when i wasn't even sure if he liked me but i was crashing on his couch hoping he did) and it was terrible. i had never made gravy before. well. this time was a little better. i really should have practiced sometime in the last 4 years since this is seth's favorite breakfast but i didn't and the gravy turned out ok but i undercooked the biscuits. boo. regardless, it was fun waking up with him, eating breakfast and opening his gifts.

i got him this awesome set of vintage science encyclopedias and a clock to add to his clock collection.

on friday we went out to eat with friends to celebrate his birth and since every celebration should have a cake, i made my february cake.

nothing special. yellow cake with chococlate frosting and sprinkles. it tasted rather delightful but i didn't leave myself enough time to get fancier with the decorations so i have come to the conclusion that i need to do some practicing before my next cake.

since then we have also celebrated valentine's day.

i made seth cookies and got him this print off etsy.

seth got me the above (oh so pretty) dragon's bone and book i had been eying from Birdie. what great gifts!

we celebrated by going to benvenuti's (only the best high-class* italian in town. *i included high-class because victoria's is up there, it's just more down-to-earth italian).

beyond this our time has consisted of trying to figure out what we are doing with our lives, trying to get porter trained, and hanging out with our friends. hopefully we'll fit a new recipe in there sometime soon.
