Good morning! Here’s my Tuesday return from the weekend so I hope you all had good ones.
Doing something fun on a Monday night is always a treat since Monday’s are usually such blah days. Last night I met up with my old roomie Nichole for Urbana’s delicious happy hour. A very good way to start to the week!
Urbana does $5 glasses of wine during their HH, so we both enjoyed a nice glass of cab. After browsing the menu earlier in the day I had a definite plan for what to eat!
A beet and rhubarb salad with apple crisps. How delicious does that sound? I don’t think I’ve ever seen rhubarb in a salad but I love it and therefore it was a must.
Delish! Sweet beets worked so nicely with the tang of the rhubarb. I think I’ve only ever had rhubarb in dessert form so this was an interesting change.
And one of my very favorite small plates, prosciutto-wrapped blue cheese dates. If you’ve never tried this combo you absolutely must. It’s one of those majorly delicious sweet/savory pairings, like salted caramel. Heaven.
Urbana’s were certainly not the best I’ve had but they’ll do. That delicious salad more than made up for their shortcomings!
So how’s that for a yummy happy hour? And of course the highlight was getting to see the lovely Nicole. We are the last 2 remaining in the DC area from our original house of 4. Things change so quickly! I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since we moved out of our beautiful Foggy Bottom apartment. Since then 2 are engaged, 1 is in New York and 1 is moving to the Middle East! And as usual my life is just one giant (fun) mess.
I’ll see you soon my friends. Several exciting things coming up this week including a preview-to-Restaurant-Week din on Wednesday and a Food Truck-off Friday!
