State Club and Nutcracker

Last night mom and I ate at the State club and then went to see the Nutcracker. The dinner was a buffet in the main room. I am still hoping to be able to eat in their real restaurant sometime! I loved the Nutcracker! I love ballet so much and we had 3rd row seats in Memorial Auditorium.

Cantina 18

Last night Dad, Addison and I went to Cantina 18 in Cameron Village. It was delicious and reminded me of Tin Lizzies in Atlanta. We decided to share the 3 taco platter and each pick our own taco. Addison had the shrimp, dad had chicken, and I had the vegetable taco. I should know better by now that I don't really like veggie tacos, but it was okay. We also shared guacamole and an order of calamari. The tacos came with black beans, rice, and shredded vinegary cabbage that was enough for all of us to share. It was really good. I also liked the sour cream that came with the calamari, it had lime in it.

I bought takeout for the family this week. It was delicious as always.

Pei Wei

Last nights take out from Pei Wei was way spicier than usual. :( I love the texture of their tofu though. I got the thai coconut curry dish (I think that's what it was called).

I haven't been to Qdoba in awhile, so when I went today for lunch I was excited to learn about their Craft 2 deal. It is kind of like Panera Bread's "You Pick Two" and you get to pick 2 smaller size items to go together from their menu. The options are listed below:

Naked Taco Salad™Naked Burrito®
Two TacosTortilla Soup
Grilled QuesadillaNachos
Mexican Gumbo
I had the vegetarian mexican gumbo and a quesadilla. I felt a little rushed and now looking at the menu I wish I had tried the nachos instead of the quesadilla. The one thing I don't like about Qdoba is how its really hard to read the entire menu while you are standing in line and the server is right in front of you staring you down hurry up to place your order.

Chef's Palette

Tonight we ate at the Chef's Palette in Cary off of ten-ten road. It was pretty good. I had the swet potato crisps with 3 dipping sauces (amazing) and the shrimp salad in half an avocado. I was disappointed that my avocado was brown and mushy. Other than that, I would go back. Its a very nice restaurant and there isn't anything like it nearby.

Description of what I ordered:
Intense Sweet Potato Ribbon Fries - Sweet potato sliced thin, deep fried, and served with three sauces: quatro frommage, carribean spiced honey, and remoulade.

Shrimp Salad Stuffed Avocado- Half an avocado, sliced and topped with a New Orleans style shrimp saladIntense Sweet Potato Ribbon Frie

Farmer's Market

I am home for winter break and today mom, dad, and I ate lunch at the Farmers Market. It was delicious. The best part was how HOT and fresh everything was. The biscuits were one of the best parts but I ate those before my meal even came out. I had a vegetable plate with squash, mashed potatoes, okra, and deviled eggs. Everyone got free banana pudding for dessert that came with the meals!

Amy's No-Chicken Noodle Soup

This soup was very good! It has tofu instead of chicken. I've been looking for something like this for quite some time because I like the taste of chicken noodle soup, I just wanted it with vegetable broth and no chicken. I also had a tuna sandwich on the side.

Had some pizza and broccoli for dinner. Its exam time so everyone is studying. Am I weird because I'm a little jealous I don't have anything to hardcore study for? I mean I do have to study for EOH tomorrow, but I kind of like that feeling when you just sit in the library and cram all day. Its like getting in the studying zone.

ROASTED MUSHROOMS Logan Turnpike grits, poached farm egg, sherry vinegar

This dish was very rich. The grits were delicious and I did eat the poached egg although I am not used to the runny insides. I love sauteed mushrooms and hadn't had them in a long time.

CRISPY GOAT CHEESE SALAD spinach, frisse, spiced walnuts, grilled pear vinaigrette

This salad was my favorite dish that I had tonight. The combination of the warm fried goat cheese with the walnuts, pears, and spinach was delicous and unique.

VANILLA BEAN CREME BRULEE shortbread cookies

I have been very into creme brulee lately. I love the sugared top that reminds me of ice cracking on a pond when you dig into it. I almost forgot about the two little cookies on the side, so they were a nice treat to end with.

Alphabet Soup

At home it is snowing, but here it's just gloomy. I decided it was an Alphabet soup day. This is an Amy's Brand soup. I had the chili of the same brand the other day and both were very good. I have had trouble with Amy's entrees being very bland, but I didn't have to add anything to either of my soups for flavor. I also have a Thai coconut Amy's soup to try so I am hoping it will be delicious like the kind I always get at Thai restaurants.

Tonight I'm going to Murphy's. It seems like that's the place I always go, but it is so good. I'm going to try something new tonight so I will post later.
