I had a nice birthday. I had this random craving for Fuddruckers so for lunch, two of my co-worker friends and I went there. Did you know that they now have the option of a non-buttered whole wheat bun? I was pleased. Even though Fuddruckers is primarily a hamburger place, they do have other things. They even have a garden burger. I got grilled chicken this time, but have had the garden burger before and it’s good. I’m not trying to claim that Fuddruckers is a healthy restaurant by any means, but there are ways to make your meal there healthiER.
While I was at work, Jason was at the potential house with an inspector. Let’s just say that there were a fair amount of things to be concerned about. We need to go over the inspector’s report with the realtor and figure out what we will ask the seller to fix. There are some biggies and we’ve decided that if they decline to fix them, we will not be purchasing the house. I think that they will agree to them because any potential buyer with a decent inspector would find these problems. We’re kind of in limbo right now since we haven’t met with our realtor or presented the findings to the sellers yet. I kind of want the sellers to be our friends. They seem super cool and they left us a present! A jar of homemade violet jelly. I am not exactly sure what violet jelly tastes like, but it was nice of them. I wish they could be our neighbors! Not that I know these people, but the house gave off a major hippie vibe and I like that. There was also a copy of Veganomicon in the kitchen. Only I would get excited about that.
When I got home from work yesterday, there was a bunch of fun birthday stuff on the table. Jason had bought me flowers, a balloon with a doggie on it, a card, a cupcake and a bottle of wine. He’d already gotten me P90X a month ago but wanted to get me something else. (He feels bad when I tell people that he got me a workout dvd, but I really wanted it!)
We had a glass of wine at home and then drove to Top Flr for dinner. We started out with the mussels. After we ate them, there was still a lot of broth left so the waiter gave us another hunk of bread so we could sop it up. That was sort of a mistake because I was extremely full before I even got my entree.
For my entree, I ordered the scallops. The waiter had warned us that everything was ala carte and the entrees didn’t come with sides. I was a little surprised when my dinner came out and it was just two scallops. They were huge though and I actually only could eat about one and a quarter because I was so full from the bread. They were on top of a sweet potato puree which was delicious. I like anything sweet potato. Doesn’t the one on the left look like steak? I can assure you, it was a scallop.
I liked Top Flr well enough. I don’t think it’s going to become a go-to restaurant or anything like that, but I’m happy that we branched out and went somewhere new. Jason and I tend to go to the same places all the time. Hello, Thaicoon. After dinner, we went home and were in bed by 9:30. Proof that I am old. At least I didn’t have a hangover today!
Speaking of old, I was telling some people at work that while I just turned 32, Jason’s still in his twenties until September! So a bunch of co-workers started calling me a cougar. And Jason was calling me a cougar the night before. At least I look young, right? Seriously, people usually quite surprised when they find out how old I am. If you have a significant other, what’s the age difference? Who is older?
