Lazy Sunday

I spent most of the day being incredibly lazy. I woke up late, around noon. I had a craving for sushi, so went to Whole Foods and picked some up. After I ate, I took another nap and spent some time reading The Omnivore’s Dilemma. I did, however, make dinner.

The reason I was so pooped was because I had quite a busy day yesterday. It was Jason’s birthday. We went to Nakato for dinner. It was really good.

The meals all came with soup, salad, 4 shrimp and noodles. I chose scallops and shrimp for my entree. The scallops were awesome. They were very tender. All in all, it was a great meal.

After dinner, Jason’s inner rockstar made an appearance.
