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!
