I just slept for 10 hours…yikes!
I have a feeling I will probably now feel tired for the rest of the day. Does that ever happen to anyone else? Too much sleep, and you’re left feeling sluggish??
Hopefully I won’t be left feeling too tired – I’ve got a LOT to do!
So as I mentioned yesterday, Jay and I headed out to dinner at one of our favorites, Jimmy Casey’s. We were smart enough to call ahead and were able to reserve a table in the bar area, which we actually like better than the main dining room.
Almost immediately upon sitting down, we were served some warm bread with dipping oil.
Oh bread, how I adore you. I was able to keep the consumption to one piece though, rather than my typical move of eating half of that loaf.
And I also took part in National Drink Wine Day with a delicious glass of Pinot Grigio.
For my main meal, I ordered the Dublin Salmon, a fresh Atlantic salmon filet, seasoned and grilled to perfection, finished with an Irish cream sauce with spinach and roasted red peppers.
On the side, it came with mashed potatoes with a sweet potato top (my favorite!) and roasted brussels sprouts with a caramelized bacon glaze. This was actually my first attempt ever at brussels sprouts, and I’d say I could probably take ‘em or leave ‘em.
The salmon, on the other hand, was phenomenal. Perfectly cooked, and the sauce it came with was so nice and light, yet full of flavor. I ate every last bite of it!
After dinner, we made a trip Target run so I could pick up some goodies…
Yay for self tanners! I went with the Jergens Natural Glow lotion for both body and face. I’m so excited to see how they turn out.
Jay and I both got really excited when we saw some of the St. Patty’s Day decorations out. We clearly LOVE St. Patty’s Day…
Aaaand, we may or may not be going back to Target today to buy this hat…
Time to go get crackin’ on our To-Do List for today!!
Question for the Day:
Do you celebrate St. Patty’s Day? Irish, or not!
