One of my favourite things about the weekend: going out to restaurants! Some people like to go out on Saturday nights and get drunk. But me? I like to go out for delicious food with friends.
Saturday night I met up with some friends for sushi at Gozen. It had been weeks since we all hung out last, so I was so excited to see them. I was also excited to try out Gozen for the first time. It had a great atmosphere with big comfy booths upstairs and good service. I really enjoyed the food as well.
I started off with my favourite wakame salad. The portion looks huge, but there was some shredded white radish underneath. I wish it had all been seaweed though!
For my entree I got a salmon and a tuna roll. My favourites!
I had such a great time hanging out with these girls! I’m already excited for our plans to visit Jambalaya – a restaurant with a fusion of Thai, Cajun, and Carribean cuisine. It sounds amazing!
On Sunday my parents came to visit. I was so happy to see them because the last time I saw them was Thanksgiving over a month ago. They helped me out with some stuff around the apartment and with a minor car repair, then we all went out to lunch at Jack Astor’s. We’re not usually big fans of chain restaurants, but this place surprised me.
I ordered a delicious stir fry with chicken, carrots, zucchini, onions, green pepper, sprouts, and water chestnuts served over basmati rice with the teriyaki sauce on the side. It was so fresh and healthy tasting!
And it was the perfect way to satisfy my hungry belly after that morning’s 3.5 mile run. I was really excited after that run because it brought my weekly mileage up to 16.5 miles – I haven’t reached that distance in a while. It gives me hope that maybe someday soon I’ll be able to train for a half marathon!
But as for right now, my life is enough of a marathon for me. Today I have class all morning, then the gym, then homework, and then I have to meet for a group project all evening. Life is definitely keeping me busy!
