I hope you all had a great weekend! I sure did, you know, because the world didn't end.
Truth be told, I was a bit scaredy cat about it. I am a Christian and I know that I shouldn't be scared, but when everyone is yappin' about it...I can't help but feel a bit anxious. Heck, there was even a man who said that he was going to euthanize all his pets when the rapture came. Yes, I understand he was probably a crazy koo-koo, but that still put a twinge of anxiety in me. I gave Sonic an extra BIG HUG that day.
In the meantime, Hubby and I went on another Double Date adventure with Ed and Kristin! We went to stroll around Old Town Pasadena to find a place for dinner.
Our adventure included: Getting lost ::cough:: boys fault ::cough::
People trying to convert us into Scientology...
And finally, finding a new place to dine.
Bar Celona- Tapas Restaurant.
It was a small, eclectic place with different types of people. That's always a good sign.
The boys started with a couple of Spanish Beers, while I settled for a glass of White Sangria.
THEN, it was time for the food....amazing food...unique food...and flavorfully fun food.
|Garlic Shrimp....Tangy goodness|
|Pork Croquetas... Grenade of flavor|
|Short Rib Empanada- Yum Bomb|
|Serrano Ham- Delicate but flavor kick to the buds|
|Spanish Flatbread with THREE types of Sausage. BOOM.|
|Braised Pork Belly. PERIOD.|
After this masterpiece of a meal, we got shaved. All of us. At the same time.
Shaved Ice Truck. Need I say more? Check out this glorious menu.
It's nothing like a snow cone...the ice is shaved so much finer than that and the syrups aren't too sweet. It was JUST LIKE HAWAII!
The prices are amazing...and as it should be...it's only ICE and JUICE! Ludacris!
I chose half Tiger's Blood (Pina Colada-ish), half Orange Dreamsicle with sweet cream on top, and a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream on the bottom. I ran the morning after... no worries.
But Ed won with this amazing creation.
Two pillowy soft Macadamia Cookies hugging Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. It was the best ice cream sandwich we've ever tasted. We voted that.
