Good afternoon, everyone! How’s your Saturday going?
So far I’ve slept in, had a huge glass of water, and am sitting down to blog before a day of semi-relaxation. Let’s chat about my night out!
Last night, the fammzy and I decided to try someplace new. We’ve become Regulars at a few places around town, but we decided to try out a new restaurant downtown. Our selection? Edibles.
We started off with an artisan bread basket. Foccacia served with a light, creamy butter on the side.
Next, we enjoyed crab cakes.
These were warm, light, decadent, and totally savory. The aioli on the side added a nice, spicy kick.
For my salad, I ordered the summer.
Greens, radishes, cucumbers, tomatoes, and croutons. Love croutons.
But really, how can you say no to cheese-toasted bits of heaven?
Say hello to our main courses.
Madre’s Chicken d’ Medici: Panko chicken cutlet, arugula, lemon, parmesan.
Baby Sister’s Beefsteak Tomato with garlic quinoa, mint, and smokey greens.
Padre’s salad with Asian-fusion shrimp. Unreal.
And finally, the main event.
Honey Ginger Glazed Salmon with Cherry Quinoa and Scallion Oil.
This was insane. I knew I wanted something sweet and savory, and this hit the spot. The scallion oil atop the cherry quinoa and honey glaze created a great fusion of my favorite flavors. By the time I had eaten 80% of this, I was stuffed and had to stop. More for later!
By the end of our meal, the chef walked around to talk to customers. I personally thanked him for the food, and the belly ache that I would be having.
I love Indulgence Friday.
Later in the night, I saw some friends and came home (yet again) way too late. Which is okay, because today is my day off! But when I have a “day off”, it’s said loosely. I don’t have any “official” commitments, but I have a drawing project to finish, e-mails to answer, and graphic design projects to work on. I also have the gym to hit up. It’s going to be relaxing, but also productive.
How did you spend your Indulgence Friday?
