Since we are still in the process of unpacking and I have been working my butt off cooking people breakfast and cleaning their rooms, I haven't been doing much cooking at home. But, we have been eating. Our first homemade meal was something we called slosh- a bunch of yellow split peas with herbs thrown into a crockpot and cooked too long. Tasty, but not very picture worthy.
Saturday night, Candy and I decided to have a date night. The Paramount Theater was playing Gone With the Wind. We decided to have dinner at Thai Passion across the street beforehand. We shared an order of spring rolls, and a yellow curry dish. Both were pretty good. The curry dish was full of yummy veggies like eggplant, zucchini, and bell peppers, plus some really nice tofu. It was pretty spicy, but the iced thia tea helped mellow it out. We lingered over dinner so long that we ended up being late to the movie. All fine by me, since it's a 4 hour movie. The theater was beautiful, though. They really helped capture it's established history through the architecture. It was a perfect way to spend our 1 month anniversary :)
Sunday night we decided to stay in and chill. We ordered pizza to go at Mellow Mushroom. Ours was a veggie with no cheese, which had spinach, sundried tomatoes, garlic, fresh basil, and artichoke hearts. We grabbed some FYH Mozz, and cream sodas from Wheatsville. Holy soy, why have I never tried FYH before now?! I tasted it right out of the package, and it tasted like string cheese (which I used to love). But on the pizza, it was divine. I think I may feel an addiction coming on..
We enjoyed it with a salad on the side, which had veggies from Wheatsville, and the BEST dressing ever- Cashew Tamari Garlic. Another major addiction.
For dessert, we had a love cake that I picked up for Candy at Dhaba Joy after work. Aww, how sweet. So cute, and chocolatey. It had a little bit of cream filling, and was kind of similar to a Hostess.
We have not been having much luck with our transportation lately. We thought it would be simple enough to get around using the bus. But, if we want to go anywhere in downtown, or the north side, it takes at least 45 minutes one-way. When you are on a time limit (like when I'm going to work), this can be a major pain. Also, there are times when you miss the bus (like when I'm going to work..) and you have to pay to take a taxi. I'm hoping to sell my car in Houston soon so that I can get myself a scooter!
Bonus shot: the biggest strawberry I have ever seen. It became part of the fruit plate for breakfast at work.
