It Makes Me Smile

How is it already 9:15pm? Seriously, where does the time go!

Jay and I actually just got home from an evening out, and we still have to prep our Mother’s Day brunch that we’re having tomorrow, so I’m gonna make this one snappy, mmmkay?

This afternoon, after indulging in my fabulous pedicure, I came home and enjoyed a refreshing, al fresco lunch on the back deck.

A simple, mixed-veggie salad, topped with cottage cheese & balsamic vinegar. Always a winner in my book!

Also a winner? This cornbread. And don’t let that size fool you…I had a few nibbles out of the pan before actually cutting my “real” piece.

For dinner, Jay and I headed to one of our favorite chain restaurants tonight, Ruby Tuesday, with a Buy 1 – Get 1 Free coupon in hand. We actually got the coupon just by signing up for their So Connected program. If you’re not signed up and like free food, go for it. Winking smile

We started off with their amazing new cheddar biscuits. Thank god they only gave us two, because I would have easily been tempted to wolf down more.

For my entrée, I decided to try their Tuscan Crab Tilapia, along with grilled green beans and zucchini as my sides.

The veggies were outstanding; grilled to perfection with really great flavor.

The tilapia was very good, but nothing that totally rocked my socks.

I’ll tell you what DID rock my socks though…

Red raspberry frozen yogurt with rainbow sprinkles from Guptill’s Coney Express. It’s too bad it’s so expensive, because this is probably my favorite fro-yo around. It just makes me smile. Smile

Now I’ve got the energy I need to go get crackin’ on tomorrow’s brunch menu…then I’m sure I’ll be out like a light in no time. Talk about a roarin’ Saturday night, right?

Hope everyone had a great day!

    I’ve only been to Ruby Tuesdays a couple times, but yes their biscuits are AMAZING. But still can’t beat Red Lobster’s! I always end up getting the salad bar, so I can’t say how their food is, and my boyfriend gets their GIANT burger every time. It’s ridiculous and is held together by a steak knife…

    Good luck with Mother’s Day!
