Hubby and I love to frequent those hibachi-style Japanese restaurants, but we hadn’t been to one in what seemed like forever. So, I suggested we hit up one of our faves, Kabuto …especially since they almost always have coupons online. I found 1 for buy 1 entree get the second half off and we headed over.
I’m feeling pretty lazy today, so here are some photos (with little text):
Kabuto cocktail – midori and some other fun stuff
Broth soup – the only way I enjoy mushrooms (though I feel like they’re fiiinally starting to grow on me)
Ginger sauce – they used to give this along with the white one. Now, you have to ask for it. I highly recommend – it’s delish with the veggies!
Fried rice – I’ve tried to recreate this at home many, many times to no avail. There must be a secret!
Hibachi shrimp – my fave unless I get the shrimp + chicken combo.
After dinner, hubby and I went shopping. I, of course, loved this light turquoise set. This would be perfect in our sun room!
Check out this ginormous ottomon! It was bigger than the couch!
We found a couple nice things, but nothing we loved. We’re hoping to get some good deals on Craigslist and at local garage sales, too, so we’ll see.
We came home to a dessert to share – a Cheryl & Co Finer Baked Goods Blondie Bar. I read the label on this earlier in the day and was pleased to see so many natural ingredients on the list – even wheat flour!
Hubby and I split the blondie…it was decadent and delish – perfect for sharing!
Finally, I have some good…no, GREAT news! I saw my doctor again today and he thinks I can work my way back into exercising…even doing zumba soon! HOW EXCITED AM I??? I’ve missed my zumba workouts and seeing my zumba friends soooo much! I can’t wait to go back to class. Till then, my doctor suggested trying some light spinning and working out on the elliptical to build up my leg and hip muscles…gently, of course. I’m not a member of a gym, but hubby and I are thinking of joining one. I’d really like to start doing more cross-training – specifically strength-training to help prevent injuries.
Either way, I can’t wait to DANCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yippee!
