I will be thematic and make a post all about food.
First off, my ex-work’s Christmas party was this past Friday, which I attended. I, uh, haven’t worked there since may, but Christine needed a date, and I needed some free food, so it all worked out. It was really nice to see people I hadn’t seen in quite awhile. It was also nice to eat all the food. I had some pieces of medium rare steak dipped in crab dip, dipped some shrimp in crab dip, dipped some mozzarella balls in crab dip, and dipped my fork into the crab dip over and over and over again. Then I gorged on Linda’s desserts. And ate more shrimp. The next day I ate a tangerine and not much else, as at some point late Saturday night my stomach did a very good job of letting me know that there definitely is such a thing as too much protein. My, but it was tasty, though.
And then there’s the glorious lunch Drew and I ate today. See, we have this ceramic Pikachu. We’ve been dumping coins into it for almost a year now, and I recently got a bunch of coin rolling tubes from the bank and rolled those babies on up (I find it a strangely soothing task). The money in it has been earmarked for ‘eating out money’, and after rolling we had $60 and some change. So we went to the Phoenician for lunch. So freaking good! I got a chicken shawarma wrap and Drew got a kefka kebob wrap, both with hummus on the side, plus a cucumber and yogurt appetizer, plus pistachio baklava for dessert. It’s the second time I’ve been there and I will definitely keep going back. The actual dinner entrees are a bit steep, but lunch is quite reasonable, and there’s also a gazillion appetizers to choose from as well. Plus, I’d someday like to live in a place that looks like the interior of the Phoenician. In any case, if you want luscious Lebanese food, you should go there immediately.
