Evenin' all! I am blogging with a quickness tonight because I just got back from a date with the boyf and it is already 11pm!
So imagine my surprise when aforementioned boyf suggested that we try a raw restaurant for dinner before the movie tonight. Looks like homegirl stirred up some interest! I was happy to oblige. Since he loves him some Eye-talian food, I thought Adelina's might be a safe bet, since it serves raw and cooked vegetarian fare.
Not to be outdone by the girlf, though, boyf went all raw for dinner. Props and snaps for the open mind. It started off well, as we were served a lovely basket of raw flax crackers.
And then we progressed to what I thought were rather innocuous starter salads. I think this is where it started to go downhill.
I chose the zucchini marinara as my entree. It hit the spot for me, since the day's eats up until this point included very little veg, but there is no doubt in my mind that I liked my homemade version better. (Forever indebted to Gena, of course.)
The boyf got the zucchini pesto. I dove across the table for a sample of his and immediately pronounced it excellent (and not just for his benefit), but there was a distinct underwhelmedness emanating from his general region...
But what a good little doobie. :)
P.S. We saw Transformers II in IMAX after dinner, and I'm enough of a nerd to admit I pretty much enjoyed it way more than I thought I would. Majorly overblown (understatement of the year) and ridiculous? Yes. Was that what I expected? Yes. Mission accomplished. Sometimes I secretly wish I could do the Optimus Prime voice.
