Too Much Food

Two days of no posts. Whoops. I’ve been … lazy.

Thursday:

Went out to Lenny’s with some coworker’s.

Lenny’s Sub Shop
14625 Memorial Dr
Houston, TX 77079

The coworker’s claim it’s better than Subway or Quizno’s. I do not agree. Although Lenny’s do not skimp out on the meat, I feel the other places had more toppings. I need a lot of vegetables …

Later that day we had Happy Hour at Watson’s.

WORST service ever. Plus they don’t have happy hour prices. At least we didn’t get them. I know it’s Thursday after work but um … wtf! We waited for a good hour for service sitting at our table. Then when we put our order in we had to wait another 30 minutes. And not everyone got their drinks! Maybe we went on the wrong day but for seriously? All of us agreed not to go there ever again. Once was enough.

The only good thing was a dude buying a beer for me. Score.

Had brunch with Amanda and her friend at Black Walnut Cafe. I got the French Dip this time around. I didn’t dip my sandwich. As for the meat, it wasn’t that amazing. It had a smell to it. Next time I’m going to try the Chicken Pesto Pasta Salad. Mmmm …

I also got a Chocolate Cannoli and a Pistachio Canolli. That stuff is delicious. I’ve asked Sissy to make cannoli’s happen at her wedding …

Sissy and Brett came to visit later that afternoon so we played Marvel Ultimate Alliance II. We beat it!

Bruno chilling on me as I gamed on.

While I was at the vet with Rocky, Sissy and Brett went and got Rudy’s takeout! YUM! Moist brisket!

Saturday:

I’ve done absolutely nothing. And it feels AMAZING. Thank goodness for the days we can just relax. I did get my crawfish fix though. Not a lot but enough to be happy.

Tomorrow I am going to see Samantha! It’s been a good two weeks! We are hoping to get some green beer. 😉

Whoo … that is a lot of stuff in one post.

Good night!

Black Walnut Café and Bravos Mexican Restaurant

How am I so full today?!Disappointed smile

My friend Ed and I met at Black Walnut Café but instead of the one in Sugar Land, it was the one in Cinco.

I ordered the Garlic Cheese Bread for starters. I shared it with Ed. For the main meal I got the Grilled Cheese with Tomato Soup.

Nom Nom goodness.

If you followed me on Twitter you would of heard the words

Too much bread and cheese … dying.

That Garlic Cheese Bread is the devil … so good I couldn’t stop and cried was sad when it was over.

The soup wasn’t all that great and there was SO much cheese in that Grilled Cheese. If that’s how you roll, you would love it.

Thank goodness, I’m not lactose intolerant. I would of …. everywhere.Embarrassed smile

I was so full but Ed wanted to hang out some more before he had to go to work so we went to Starbucks down the street. He paid for my Green Tea Frap since I paid for the whole appetizer.

So good. I painted my nails too. Pretty? It’s the first time I painted them not a normal color.

Afterward I went home and played my guitar. Ed re-strung all the strings for me. I’m always afraid it will pop in my face (because that has happened before).

Reunited and it feels so good! SmileOpen-mouthed smileRolling on the floor laughing

I headed into Sugar Land to meet up with Amanda. It was suppose to be us and two of her other friends but they couldn’t make it. Oh well, more time for us to catch up!

I went to pick her up and we headed to:

We were there for Happy Hour. It was Amanda’s FIRST Happy Hour and I believe she said the first time she’s drank since her celebration.

We got free chips and dip. Yumm! Much needed with all that alcohol.

And by all that alcohol I mean, we each ordered …

Strawberry Margaritas. There is too much alcohol in that shizz. I know for sure now I really DO NOT like ANY margaritas. Beer for me please.

The lovely Amanda with her marg.

After much talking and sucking that baby down, I drove her home and headed home.

See .. not much eating all day. That meal in the morning got me. Dang cheese. I don’t even like you!

After reading Rachael’s post about Recommitting, I hopped on the treadmill.

I obviously did not do a 6 mile tempo run like she did (I haven’t even reached to that point yet!) but I did do a 25 minute run and a 25 minute butt and thigh exercise.

I feel better already but it’s going to be hard to go back to how I did three weeks ago.

I should of not quitted for so long! Ah, you’re stupid, Melissa.

But I did better than I thought. I even up-ed the tempo a little more than I usually did.

Thanks, Rachael, for that post. You saved me.

Now I’m sucking down a blueberry smoothie with too much milk. I ran out of yogurt so it’s mostly milk and ice. Still delicious.

I know for sure I need to eat something so I think I’m going to jump into the shower, then do so.

Tomorrow is going to be another Food-venture!! My mum and I will be attending lunch at one of the Houston Restaurant Week restaurant. Then I can cross it off my Bucket List!

Night!

Black Walnut Cafe

Like stated on my previous post, I went over to Michelle’s house Friday night. I was a little scared driving through the countryside.

Eyes on the road. Safety first! 😛

When I got to her place, Stephanie was already there. We went to the backyard.

Isn’t it beautiful?! They have a river out back and past the grass you go down a slope and there’s more land and the gazebo you see on the left. Pretty neat huh?

They have a really gorgeous house. Plus, their family is really sweet.

Yesterday, June, Timothy, and I went out to Sugar Land to celebrate our cousin, Kenson’s, birthday.

We went and watched Transformers: Dark of the Moon.

I wasn’t really a big fan of wanting to watch this movie because they took Megan Fox out and added that model girl, who I don’t really care to know the name of.  But I still wanted to see it nonetheless.

Though I don’t like the girl, I like her hair. Especially when they were standing in rubble and she was talking into the camera.

I knew I would like this movie but I was hoping my cousin wouldn’t pick it because it was two hours long. I even tried to make him not pick it by saying “I heard it sucks! Let’s watch something else.” In the end, I still wished we didn’t see it in the theater.

Shia LeBeouf is as sexy as ever. As is Josh Duhamel.

Oh, and I’m not ashamed to say I shed some tears in this movie.

Anyway, for dinner, we went to:

Black Walnut Cafe
16535 Southwest Fwy #2002
Sugar Land, TX

First off, I ordered the Toasted Raviolis “Español” [ravioli, mild jalapeño cheese, tomato & Pavia alfredo sauces, garlic bread] | $8.50 to share with the group.

I was told this was the best dish on the menu and everyone ordered it. Sadly, I was not a fan of the ravioli. It was crispy but on the inside, it was very dry. But the garlic bread was to die for. Crispy and moist enough.

For my main meal, Meatball Sandwich [house-made meatballs, mozzarella, tomato & Pavia alfredo sauces, onion baguette] | $8.50.

The meatballs were a little dry but I really liked the onion baguette. It was just the right crunch but also soft. The fries were mushy, just how I like it.

I would like to go here again and try other dishes. It wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t 100% terrific. Maybe I just need to order something else that people love.

I can’t believe the weekend is already over! Sad, sad! Hope you guys had a good weekend!!
