A Week of Wine and Food

It's a good thing I wasn't on a diet this week (and that I went to the gym everyday). Monday I made my semi-famous Peanut Butter Chocolate Brownies for an office potluck we were having on Tuesday. At the potluck I filled up my plate with everything from pizza to desserts.

Thursday I was involved in a Fresh & Easy wine tasting through Twitter (#FreshandEasyWine). The three bottles of wine, along with the antipasto tray we came up with when we pooled our two gift cards were all great.

On Friday a friend and I met for Chinese food, before coming back to my house with four mini-desserts from Bel Air. We shared the desserts and wine with my roommates while hanging out and getting a chance to talk, a good thing since I hadn't seen her since before my cruise in October.
 
I was able to get out for a 6.5 mile run on Saturday, it was fantastic to do some serious exercise in light of all the food I had already eaten. After the run I called my parents who invited me to dinner. We decided on Seasons 52, a new restaurant at Arden Fair Mall that changes its menu four times a year and has weekly specials. All of the food was amazing and each plate was under 475 calories, so I felt that it was pretty healthy too. We started off by sharing a Greek Flat Bread, then I had Cedar Plank Salmon as my main course and we finished up with mini-indulgences. Everyone at our table got one, but I couldn't make a decision between two of them, so I ended up with two (they were tiny and only $2.50 each, so that was okay, right?). I cannot wait to go back as the menu changes throughout the year, the service was great, the food was tasty and I really liked the entire concept and feel of the restaurant.
