My journey along the yellow brick road to becoming an RD
Both you and your mom look like you had fabulous meals! I haven't been to Tru before, but my parents have been a couple of times for anniversaries and such, and they love it. My mom maintains to this day that they have the best Caesar salad she's ever had. I don't know if/when Brantford has a restaurant week - I need to look into that!I think I would always go with cheesecake...although a lemon meringue pie would make me second guess that decision.
I love how nicer restaurants like that actually have reasonable portions. If you had ordered that risotto at Kelsey's or something, it would probably be overflowing from your plate. That meal looks delicious!
Cheesecakes for sure!!! And shopping for suits made me laugh. When I was interviewing for teaching jobs and had to wear suits I was like UGH! I don't wear them anymore... NOw I'm all about dresses and skirts!!
Everything looks amazing! I'm actually not a cheesecake fan but give me anything chocolate and I'm sold!
YUM- Tru looks awesome and I'm pretty sure I would have picked the same dishes as you did! Cheesecake is my all-time favorite dessert and the sound of a graham cracker crust sounds heavenly! We have restaurant week coming up in April, and I will definitely be participating this year!Is there a Zara in Canada? Their trousers have a great fit!
mmm that salmon looks good. I actually have never been a fan of cheesecake, not a flavor I like that much
Pittsburgh's restaurant week for winter was a few weeks ago but Joe and I are already planning hitting it up in August/September! Can't wait...and that cheesecake looks heavenly! All your food does actually...I love being able to get meals like that for an affordable price :)
I remember things feeling completely surreal the first time I had to go out shopping for suits as well. And then actually having to dress up for work? The 'real world' is a strange place ;) And this might make me strange, but I actually don't enjoy cheesecake much at all. Give me a good tart, or preferably a slice of chocolate cake, any day.
I LOVE restaurant weeks! We went to ours a few weeks ago! Ah interview shopping, I always have to get pants and skirts altered to fit correctly. You might want to look into that option! O I know interview dresses are really big not too!
Mmmhmm yes goat cheese :) I agree on the baked cheesecake, it really is better and just more original and familiar!
.....people eat cheesecake RAW? um WTF is that even safe?!? Clearly I know nothing about food lol. That restaurant looks like something I'd try out though - love me some beet salad! I'm not sure if Colorado Springs has restaurant week...but since my mom's here we've eaten out three times so I'm pretty satisfied lol
Congrats on your "official" adulthood!! ;) I remember when I went shopping for my first suits too--it felt so strange, yet somewhat exciting. :D Have you ever browsed the Ann Taylor Loft website? They have a wonderful petites line! You might be able to find pants there; my bff is 5'0 and buys most of her work attire on their website. It might be worth checking out!Your meal at Tru looks wonderful! I think my orders would have been exactly the same as yours--goat cheese/beet salads are a favorite; I almost always order salmon when it's featured on a menu (unless scallops are available ;) ); and cheesecake is my #1 dessert, hands down. Great choices, lady! :DI hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend! xoxo
Looks like a great place!
