I had one of the best days today! My birthday is Saturday and so my mom decided to take me to get my hair done as a gift. I’m not kidding, it’s been a year and a half since getting my hair cut. It was ridiculous. I’ll do a post on what I did, how much I cut off, and where I went tomorrow!
Right now I’d rather fast forward and talk about what we did after…had dinner at Toast!
We had two hours left on our parking ticket and we weren’t going to let that ten dollars go to waste. We stopped at Toast for some espresso and food. I ordered a non fat cappuccino with an extra shot of espresso. I know my hair may not seem short to you, but that was seven inches cut off. It feels so short!
After drinking our espresso, we ordered food!
We were hungry but not starving and so we decided to split some plates instead of ordering two entrees.
We ordered their soup of the day, tomato basil bisque. It was so rich and heavy; it tasted more like a dip, but so freaking good! I started thinking…why hasn’t anyone invented grilled cheese crackers? How good would those be in tomato soup? Yum!
We also ordered the coconut shrimp, our favorite! My mom used to make coconut shrimp all the time when I was growing up. And when I say “make”, I actually mean defrost and shove it in the oven. Still good though, mom!
We also ordered the house salad with their house vinaigrette dressing. They split the salad on two plates for us.
I love sharing plates because I usually leave a restaurant feeling way too full or always have leftovers. Restaurants give you so much food and it makes more since to share! Plus it’s a money saver. After eating, we went out to walk around Meeting street a little.
We hurried back so we wouldn’t miss the Bachelor 🙂
