I am writing this recap from bed today. We’re officially snowed in. Our city has declared a “snow-mergency” and we cannot go anywhere. Work has been cancelled, law school has been delayed and all the government buildings have been closed. I love snow days.
This weekend was full of great food. On Friday I went out to dinner with one of my best friends, Jacquelline. We hadn’t seen each other in almost two months, which was heartbreaking. Before this, I don’t think we’d ever gone longer than a week apart. So Friday was date night. We headed over to the Olive Garden where they are running their $12.99 for course meal special. Have you heard about this? You get soup or salad, breadsticks, a personal appetizer, an entree and a dessert for $12.99. It was amazing. I didn’t even make it through half of my food. I got the risotto bites as an appetizer (which I finished) and the cheese tortellini with meat sauce for dinner. I only ate two tortellinis and boxed the rest up. Had to save room for dessert you know.Then on Saturday, we took Ivan’s truck in to get a remote starter installed. My parents bought him one for christmas and we finally found the time to take it in. He loves it. He’s not a big fan of these Michigan winters and is really digging the fact that his car will be all warm and toasty when he wants to go somewhere.I also made pupusas on Saturday for the first time. There is a local food truck, El Oasis that serves these babies. They are so freaking good. They are also surprisingly easy to make. Have you ever had one? It’s basically a corn tortilla stuffed with cheese. Sunday was Superbowl Sunday, so I made a gigantic platter of nachos. Sorry, I forgot to snap a pick. Ivan and his roommate had a bunch of people over to watch the game and there was so much food to go around. I’m still stuffed from everything.
