today was another busy day! i went in early to come home early again. brad and i had more big plans this afternoon. they included going to the jewelers to get my wedding band appraised for our insurance and dropping of my engagement ring to be re-dipped in rhodium plating.
then we headed to target to finally finish our wedding registry there. thank goodness that’s done! it’s been hanging over my head… i also picked up something for myself at tarjay!
a new iphone case! mine was totally broken and useless – it fell off my phone all the time in my purse – so it was time for a new one. this was $6 on clearance! oh yeah…that’s how i roll…
[don't mind the dog hair on my pants. that's how i roll too...]
after our errands, we went to bandung, an indonesian restaurant near downtown madison. i had a livingsocial coupon for $25 that expires this month! i love group deals! i had been to bandung before, but brad hadn’t. i was hoping it was as good as i remembered! we shared the appetizer special of the day – i forget what it’s called, but it was kind of like crab rangoons. i also forgot to take a photo. oops. it was tasty though!
for my meal, i ordered curry eggplant.
it was bomb. nice and spicy with lots of veggies!
brad got chicken pad thai.
mmm. you can’t go wrong with pad thai! that’s what i ordered last time and i knew brad would love it!
full disclosure: we paid for this meal entirely on our own and i was not compensated in any way for this blog post. as always, all thoughts and opinions expressed here are strictly my own.
after dinner we both had a bit of a sweet tooth. there wasn’t much on the way home, so we stopped at a random little diner that we thought had a pastry counter. um….yeah. they did.
we ended up choosing a cream puff as big as my head! i had about 1/10 of this massive thing. brad did some work on the rest, but there is still over half left. honestly, i don’t understand why anyone needs a cream puff that big! it’s a little ridiculous.
also, a couple of you had asked about this photo from a couple days ago:
what’s the last recipe you’ve made from another blog?
i’ve been going crazy with blogger recipes lately! i’m so happy to be back in a kitchen and cooking! it’s a bonus that i have a second person to eat it up so i get to cook more!
