what a wonderful weekend! I had such a great time with Britt visiting! We’ve been best friends since 7th grade so its always the best when we reunite! I also told her about the blog so she’s a newbie reader 🙂 hi britty!
Friday night Britt and my roomie Lauren and I went out to Talara, the restaurant I was telling you guys about. It was awessomeee food. Everything we got was absolutely amazing, the only complaint I really had was that everything was SO small for the price. We left dinner still hungry! haha. But lets get to it. The restaurant itself was a really fun place. There was latin music playing the whole time, and there were great pictures hanging all over the restaurant.
To start we all ordered a drink. I got the classic Mojito. My absolute favorite summer drink, this was a pretty strong one too.
For dinner we decided to split some tapas. We got the avocado and corn seviche. Wicked ahi tuna as our fresh fish. The flavors in this dish were great. I would love to try every one of their different flavors. They all sound amazing!
We also got the chips and salsa. Plantain, malanga and tortilla chips Black bean hummus, curried mango and Yankee salsas. Tinyyyyy little portions but oh so tasty! I LOVED the plantain chips! so light and crisp!
We got the wild mushroom flatbread. Shitake, Oyster & Portobello, roasted tomato, chevre cheese, mixed olives and cilantro pesto.
We got the ancho dusted salmon. Open face on grilled Ciabatta, cilantro pesto, chipotle pumpkin butter, calabaza and jicama slaw. These flavors were amazing together, and it took me by surprise! The chipotle pumpkin butter was out of this world. It was a great dish.
My absolute favorite of the bunch were the mussels cataplana. Traditional Portuguese preparation with Chorizo, tomato and garlic, grilled ciabatta. Absolutely to die for. My favorite dish hands down.
After dinner we hussled back to the hosue to get ready for the night! Britt lent me one of her amazingggg dresses and we went out for a night on the town! We had such a great night.
Sunday was spent over at Britts house. She lives on Kent Island which is just over the bay bridge on the eastern shore. Her house is right on a river and its just gorgeous. I always love going there and her family is like my second family. We all went on the boat and enjoyed the amazing day. Wedding Crashers was actually filmed by them on the Eastern Shore and we actually drove by the house that they were playing football on in the movie.
We brought out the wakeboard and Britt’s a little professional. She was doing jumps on the wakes and goin all over the place! Its so fun to watch.
I have never really been a fan of the water, and had tried wakeboarding with her once before. Its fun, but its so hard. Heres me.
Haha. I did manage to get up though twice after these pics but my camera died so theres no evidence. I got up 2 out of the 4 times I tried. 50% heyyy now, not too bad!
Let me tell you though how ridiculously sore I am today!!!! ah, i feel like i’ve been hit by a truck. Its crazy how its such a good workout but its so fun at the same time. my forearms are what hurts the most. I did manage to get an awesome run in this weekend and am hoping to fit one in today too. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend too! Happy Monday to you!!
