Today I got to school, it was raining, I forgot my umbrella, all the pizza was sold out in the lobby, and I had no lunch because I haven't been grocery shopping since I got back from home. I decided to walk to the Cox Hall Food Court in the rain because I was so hungry. I ended up getting a burrito from the Mexican place there (I already can't remember what it's called). It was really good. Emory has such a great food court, I wish I had the opportunity to eat there more often. You also get 10% off if you dine in and use a sustainable plate instead of plastic/styrofoam!

I have been at home for almost a week for Thanksgiving break and will fly back to Atlanta tomorrow. I had a great time at home with family and went to Roanoke Rapids for Thanksgiving Day. I'm posting a picture of the great food we had as a family!
Now I have to go to sleep early so I can wake up for my flight. Then it's just 1.5 more weeks of papers, presentations, and exams before I can come back home!

Last night I went to Top Spice in Toco Hills with Cassandra and Whitney. It was packed with several huge groups of atleast 20. Despite all that, our wait was only about 5-10 minutes and the service was great. The food was also as delicious as always. I got the pad thai (what I always get). Sometimes I get the soup in addition, but I skipped that last night. I wasn't incredibly hungry so I brought half of my meal home to have for lunch today with some broccoli on the side.

Last night Whitney and I ate dinner at Sushi Avenue in Decatur and then went over to Murphy's in Virginia Highlands for dessert.
At Sushi Avenue I had the cucumber salad and the spicy crunchy shrimp roll. The cucumber salad had an amazing dipping sauce, but I was hoping it would have something other that just a ton of cucumbers with it. The sushi roll I had was pretty good for $6.50. I really wanted the double shrimp roll, but at $12 I decided against it. I also ordered some miso soup that was never brought out, and I'm glad because I was full on just the other two orders. http://sushiavenuedecatur.com/
At Murphy's Whitney and I shared the dessert trio. It was amazing!
It had the Vanilla Bean Panna Cotta (interesting texture, but good vanilla taste), the Tollhouse pie with dark & white chocolate cookie batter, oreo crust, and vanilla icecream, as well as the Bonzo, with a fudge browne, cheesecake, dark chocolate mousse, and whipped cream.
My favorite was the Bonzo for sure! I loved the dark chocolate mousse.

Last weekend Cassandra and I went to see the Atlanta Ballet's performance of Moulin Rouge. Afterwards, we had an early dinner at Flip Burger.
The Pineapple Upsidedown Shake IS THE BEST MILKSHAKE I HAVE EVER HAD! It had cake in the bottom of it and was amazing. I absolutely loved it.
Cassandra has the S'mores shake. They also have a Krispy Kreme shake that neither of us have tried but is intriguing.
I was really hungry so I ordered a small caesar salad, we shared fries, and I got the bacon cheeseburger. Cassandra had some type of barbeque brisket burger that was actually the brisket on TOP of a burger. We thought it would just be barbecue. I forgot to take a picture of my burger which is a shame, but I ended up not eating a lot of the burger part. I get weird about burgers sometimes, and when Cassandra told me that it was okay to eat it cooked medium there because it only came from one cow...I started to get grossed out. Cassandra works in food-borne illnesses so she is used to talking about it, but I don't like to think about what number of cows made up my burger! haha. http://www.flipburgerboutique.com/

Last night Ana, Cassandra, and I used a Scoutmob coupon to eat at Farmstead 303. It was a nice Halloween meal. I had the vegetable plate. It was delicious. My favorite part was the squash casserole. I also liked how the green beans were crunchy.
My only complaint was the service. Our waiter forgot to bring our rolls and responded "You still want them?" when I reminded him almost at the end of our meal. When we got a cold piece of cornbread I realized it was because they had run out of biscuits and fresh cornbread. Not so great for 7:30pm. It was Halloween and not very crowded, but I had read reviews of bad service so I am not too forgiving. 50% off with the Scoutmob was nice though. http://farmstead303.squarespace.com/
