Brunch When we got up at 10:00 (after I got up at 6 for the dogs) Hubby kindly made me an omelet with Italian blend cheeses. Yum! I love eggs. And cheese makes everything better!

Soon afterward I made myself some toast (which got a bit well done) with cinnamon and sugar and ate a pear.

Snack After my nap and trip to the grocery store I had a minibag of popcorn to see me over till dinner.

Dinner Our second wedding anniversary is Tuesday 🙂 We were originally going out of town this weekend, until our dogs decided to rack up some major vet bills. Because of that original plan, Hubby’s working on our actual anniversary. So we went to a restaurant called Last Resort tonight to celebrate.

We started out with a bottle of zinfandel. We had a great zinfandel on the last night of our honeymoon and brought home a bottle which we drank on our first anniversary (we somehow didn’t  actually receive the top tier of our wedding cake). This isn’t the same brand, but it’s quite good.

I had about 2.5 pieces of bread which was literally fresh out of the oven. We had to wait for it! Quite tasty.

I also had a salad with a balsamic vinaigrette.

I ordered one of the specials for my entree:

The catch of the day was tilapia over red onion and red peppers, topped with a chipotle mint pesto. It came with kale and cheese grits.

The fish was seared and then baked in parchment. I was so excited to try kale! I read about it on almost every blog out there but haven’t had the guts to try it myself. It was so good! I loved the lemon juice and how it brought out the flavor of the greens (Hubby’s reaction to the kale was that “some greens should be left alone”). I totally cleaned my plate.

Hubby got the salmon and grits which was Atlantic salmon on a bed of Charlestonian grits with a caper cream sauce. Pretty tasty. I liked mine better 🙂

On a whim I ordered some decaf coffee while Hubs ordered regular (study study study) and was so excited to try another new item! They had Truvia! I’ve been curious about stevia too and was pleasantly surprised with Truvia. The coffee was perfect with a single packet. Not sweet, but not the usual bitter either.

My excitement was soon eclipsed by dessert… Hubby was set on a mocha toffee cheesecake so I opted for my own cake slice of tiramasu layer cake. It wasn’t tiramasu but it was still fabulous!

I ate it all. No regrets. Hubby gave his two week notice at work this past Thursday so we won’t be eating very adventurously for quite awhile. It will be good for him and we’ll get creative about budgeting even further. Dinner tonight was absolutely fabulous and such a treat.
