i’ve never had that before

leave a comment »

So the BF & I have been trying to expose our taste buds to new tastes.  On Monday we set our sights on Flavor of India in Cranberry Township!

I was pretty nervous because I’ve NEVER EVER tasted indian food and I didn’t know what to expect.

The restaurant was quiet, cozy, and pleasant.  We were seated at a booth and munched on chips as we mulled over the menu.

The chips were pretty tasty.

After much deliberation, I decided that I would play it safe so I selected the chicken curry.  The BF ordered chicken tikka masala. After our first bites, we were able to confirm that we LOVED our meals.  The curry definitely had a unique spicy taste that I’ve never experienced before.  Now that I’ve tried it, I’m anxious to go back and be more daring with my dish selection. We’re planning a trip to their buffet for the next round!!

bring me the spring!

My 2nd favorite season of the year has arrived!

Who wouldn’t love waking up to this every morning?!

The BF & I started the day pretty early (for us).  1st on the list of activities was a surprise trip to have XM radio installed in my car! Yay!! It feels so good to have more than one radio station to choose from!

And look what we stumbled upon while waiting for my car. I’ve never actually seen one!!

So apparently part of the charm of Sonic is that it’s also a drive-in restaurant.  I was pretty tickled by the thought of having our meal brought to our car by someone on roller-skates; however,  the BF was not tickled by the thought of me eating a sloppy burger in his car.  So we opted to eat outside in the sun instead.

I have to give it to Sonic.  My burger was pretty delicious and I can see myself heading back for round 2.

The rest of the afternoon was spent handling miscellaneous errands for our new apartment. We also caught up on the last couple of LOST episodes.  Before we knew it, it was time to head out for dinner.

The restaurant of the evening was a surprise to me. I was pleasantly surprised to find us at Green Forest Cafe!!!

For those of you not familiar with Green Forest Cafe, it is a brazilian churrascaria.  To sum it up, if you love meat, this is the place for you.  Excuse my lack of pictures from inside the restaurant, but I was too busy STUFFING MY FACE. Please note that the food was PHENOMENAL!!! I am also on the hunt for Goya Passion Fruit juice, so if anyone knows where I can find it in Pittsburgh plllleeeeaaaasssseee let me know!

Happy spring to everyone!

and if you threw a party…

so my buddies & I got together in Philly to celebrate the birth of the lovely Niques! A fun time was had by all. Need I say more?

My 1st drink of the trip. 10 minutes upon our arrival.

Keep up. Or shut up.

And judging by this photo, they didn’t shut up.

Yay!!!

So typical.

I wish I had pictures from about an hour later this same evening. Then again, I think some people might be happy that I don’t.

The next day we decided to do lunch at Mad Mex.

I ordered the tortilla soup and the chicken quesadillas. Looks good doesn’t it?!  Well, unfortunately the quesadilla looked better than it tasted.  I waited 30 minutes for my soup to arrive and whoever heard of a quesadilla with no cheese??  I have to say that Mad Mex Philly needs to step up their game if they want to keep up with the Pittsburgh locations. And by the way..they were out of strawberry margaritas [insert blank stare here].

Later that night…

From classy….to trashy. Pretty quickly.

And before we knew it, it was all over. And I was on the R1 headed back to the airport.

It was fun. Until the next time…
