I’m starting to get a little sad… in 24 hours I’ll be on my way to the airport to go back to Minnesota. I guess that’s the downside of having such a long winter break: it makes it that much harder to go back when it’s over. I’m excited to see my friends, though, and get back to Wednesday night Project Runway… and last semester senior year is exciting, right? Um… I’m just going to move on to my eats, okay?
Yesterday I snuck out of the house for a piece of greasy, cheesy New York pizza. You Chicago kids will forever be at war with us but come on, deep dish is just not where it’s at.
I found blackberries for $1.50 a carton! They were good, too: sweet and juicy and just smushy enough.
I was still feeling snacky so I had a date and a prune, each stuffed with peanut butter and two chocolate chips. This combination should be immortalized.
We went out to Japanese with one of Ari’s friends. The place we went to, Shima, was having a special: edamame and either hot saki or draft beer for $3. THREE DOLLARS! Hot sake it is. I also ordered the sashimi platter, but the picture does not seem to be on my camera. Bah.
It came with 5 types of fish, with 2- 3 pieces in each, and a bowl of rice . I ate all the fish and only a little rice, so I didn’t feel stuffed for once.
16 Handles, a make-your-own frozen yogurt bar, was just across the street, and since I can’t end any dinner (especially a dinner out) without a dessert, off we went .
All of the flavors are either fat free or have less than 1g per serving, so I loaded up on flavors: peanut butter, pistachio, NSA chocolate, and Original Tart (like the Pinkberry flavor). I topped it with Reese’s PB cup, strawberries, and chocolate syrup. Mm-mm good.
We went out to the Mercury Lounge last night to see The Orion Experience, which is just about the cutest band ever and might be my new favorite. I had a vodka soda there, then we took a LONG subway ride home and watched movies.
Last diner breakfast for awhile…
I got an egg white omelet with spinach, tomato, mushrooms and feta.
I’m packing up all my stuff at Ari’s (sniff) and lugging it to my parents’ house (home #1? #2? ). We’re making our famous dinner tonight… my poor parents are probably pretty sick of it by now! Catch ya later, sugarpies.
