Last night, I actually got out of the house with a friend who is getting ready to head out of town and start a new adventure in life. Eve and I met in metalsmithing class a few years ago, only to find out we lived just a couple miles from one another. (If you want to see my jewels, you can go here.)
Our first stop last night was Asian Mint.
Where we had some of this:
Followed by this:
Which may just look so-so, but it was positively divine. It might have been one of my favorite desserts of all time. It was dense, moist spice cake layered with green tea ice cream, and a topped layer of whipped cream. Not too sweet, not too rich, no bold flavors, just simple and pleasant and completely yummylicious. Totally worth running for!!!
After a full dinner, we caught a movie... something I haven't done without children in a very very long time.
I wish I could unload stress like this everyday. It was a calm, relaxing, entertaining evening with good company. I didn't have to "race off" the stress yesterday... but I'll be back to running that stress (and dinner) off here really soon!!!
