1. Watching: My cousin Jackson and I read Divergent together last summer, so now that I’m up here, we had set a date to go see the move. We finally got around to it last night and oh boy it was SO good! Even though I had read the book, I was on the edge of my seat the entire two hours. I love the actors they chose and Four (actor Theo James) is a hunk! My aunt and I were like WOW, glad we came to this flick.
2. Listening to: Don’t you love when you really enjoy a song the very first time you hear it? Usually it takes a few listens for me to get into something new, but I was immediately a fan of Avicii’s “Addicted to You.”
3. Eating: This week I checked out Asian Imperial, a restaurant nearby that I had read raving reviews about. People seemed to be huge fans of their sushi and I’ve had it bookmarked since last summer. The place is nothing special on the outside, but the interior wasn’t too shabby. The menu is huge, with all the standard Japanese and Chinese fare you’d expect, and the accompanying sushi list is pretty long too. As always, I started with a seaweed salad, which was a pretty generous serving. Yay for a huge dose of iodine!
I chose two rolls: the Alaskan (top) and the Angel Dragon (bottom). The Alaskan roll had salmon, avocado, and cucumber. The Angel Dragon had shrimp tempura, spicy tuna, and mango, rolled in a soy wrap and topped with spicy king crab.
It was good, but nothing to write home about. I will say that I’d be open to trying their other rolls, as they all sound delicious.
4. Bookmarking: Chicken in Coconut Milk with Lemongrass. I bet this recipe packs a ton of flavor!
