last night after work, i had the pleasure of going to Saddle Ranch with some of my co-workers. if you don't know what Saddle Ranch is, it's basically a bar/restaurant on Sunset with greasy fried food, a southern feel and an electric bull that you can ride, you feel so inclined...and it looks like this:
it's fairly trashy and touristy, but we really wanted to go and it turned out to be a great place for hanging out. so great, in fact, that we were there for 6 hours. true story.
our evening started out with some complimentary cornbread and biscuits with honey butter that made them so addicting. i'd expected the cornbread to be better, but at least it wasn't spicy, despite the jalapenos in it.
+ a bud light, 'cause it reminds me of home. for my entree i got the buffalo chicken wrap with cheddar, tomato and looots of fries. it's really too bad i don't like spicy food because buffalo chicken is one of my favorites, even though it's painful to eat. i'll keep ordering it, anyway...
and finally, some cotton candy! and by some i mean a ton. monti and i devoured almost the whole thing ourselves and man, was it good. i hit a major sugar high about halfway through and then crashed. by 11pm (6 hours later) i was done for, so we all headed home. all in all, it was a really fun night, but i think the restaurant itself was a little overpriced and the service wasn't all that great. the good company made up for it, though :)
today i knew i needed to make up for my crazy eating last night. my stomach even hurt too much this morning to eat a big breakfast, so i just grabbed a pb&j sandwich thin on the way to dance. afterwards i had my pumpkin pie cottage oats and some other snacks before heading off to a model casting thing (where i got free clothes!). and dinner was this salad the size of my head:
broccoli, spinach, chicken, cheddar, cucumber, light ranch dressing and a pinch of sea salt. so big that it could only fit in a mixing bowl! dessert was this lovely creation:
i know it doesn't look all that special in there, but i promise it's delicious! recipe to come tomorrow...
that's all, folks. tomorrow's another busy day but i'll be back. goodnight!
