For some reason, each time I wear my cowboy boots, I have an awesome day. I think they’re my lucky boots. Clearly I was meant to live in the South…
So I’m sitting at work today (wearing my boots) and I get a gchat message from TJ.
Holy heck it’s us!!! Then…I’m clicking other links on the site and BAM!
I felt famous. It made my whole day!
After work, Amanda and I went to boot camp. Today’s session was tough! I was soaked in sweat – even my legs were dripping! It felt good to work that hard because a couple hours later, we met back up for dinner. Graze is a new restaurant in the Whole Foods shopping center in Mt. Pleasant. Their menu contains fresh, seasonal ingredients and has something for everyone. While we scanned the menu, we munched on some bread with citrus flavored butter…
…and sipped on some Pinot Grigio.
There were a bunch of options from many different cuisines – Italian, Greek, Korean, American, Spanish, and more! We asked for entree recommendations and were daring enough to tell our waitress to pick out an appetizer for us. There were just too many good choices! She ended up bringing us exactly what we were hoping for: Lobster Mac n Cheese.
And they aren’t kidding when they say there’s lobster. We found TWO claws of meat! The creamy bowl of orrecchiette was loaded with lobster meat, fontina, and smoked cheddar, and topped with toasted Panko crumbs.
For my entree, I chose the Lemon-Thyme Encrusted Rainbow Trout. It was served with a balsamic grilled summer vegetable and quinoa salad, smoked olive oil, and fire roasted romesco sauce. The fish was lightly seasoned and very moist, but I enjoyed the quinoa most!
Amanda chose the Korean Style Beef BBQ. It was soy marinated flank steak with house made kimchi, brown rice, and roasted seaweed. Our waitress recommended she use the seaweed to roll the kimchi and beef up like a taco. It was a great way to experience all the flavors at once.
Overall, it was a great meal. Everything was cooked right and presented beautifully. Our server and the manager were very welcoming and Amanda and I both agreed we’d love to come back to try more.
And the other awesome part of my day? A surprise package sent to my work!! Stay tuned for a DELICIOUS treat!
