Posts Tagged ‘Southwest Salad’

We decide to leave Saturday for a weekend getaway to the Keys.. not realizing it was the weekend before St. Patrick’s Day. But Key West wasn’t as busy as I thought it would be.

Regardless, we made our way south on I-95. Me sleeping for the first leg of the trip until we stopped in Palm Bay for lunch at Wendy’s. I had the Southwest Salad without the Chili or Cheese(I had to pick the cheese off myself!)

Then it was back to the roadtrip south. I made sure to pack some trailmix, which I made myself because I knew I would get the munchies. So I mixed up some Dried Cranberries, Raisins, Almonds and Pecans to munch on the drive to Key West.

While we were driving, we reserved a hotel room at the Marriott Courtyard. It’s not the Ritz Carlton, but it was nice anyway! We got settled and freshened up and left for downtown Key West for some dinner. We found a place on Duval Street called the Borttegga, which was on the quiet end of Duval. I had a Glass of White Wine and a Green Salad. I really enjoy eating salads these days… and they’re quite fullfilling.!!! After dinner, we decided to walk around Duval Street and I found an Ice Cream place. Jokingly, I dragged Mike into to pressure him into buying something and it turns out, I was the one getting pressured. He didn’t even budge. So I was the one walking around with Two Scoops of Ice Cream.

After a many hours in front of the computer, taking an online real estate course, I didn’t get a chance to eat. Then before I knew it I was running late for my 3pm appointment, and literally ran out the door. Luckily, Mike came with me and after the meeting I took a quick detour to Wendy’s while Mike went into Staples to get some office supplies.

I ate the Southwest Salad and asked for the Chili on the side and tried to pick off all the cheese I could. Once I went through all that effort, I realized the dressing was a creamy Southwestern Spicy Dressing. At that point I was so hungry, all I could do was mentally through my hands up in the air and eat my food.

That was around 4pm, because afterwards Mike headed to the interstate north. He had a piece of property up in Jacksonville that he wanted to see. So up north is where we headed to see some property, meet with his son, stop by Costco for the Vita-Mix Juicer and have dinner.

I had my eye on the Vita-Mix Juicer for some time, and it just so happened that Mike was thinking about getting the Juicer as well. So, luckily the gentleman at Costco was doing a demonstration of the Juicer and we were sold!!! I can’t wait to juice in it tomorrow.

Then we headed to Wasabi-Japanese Steakhouse for dinner and invited Mike’s son to join us. While we were waiting 45 minutes for our Grill side seats, I sat at the bar and ordered small Cold Sake. Then at the table, I ordered another one.

Something I thought was great! When the chef started to make the Fried Rice, I asked him to make a little with no egg in it. And he complied. I was thinking about asking him to use no butter on a handful of vegetables, but I thought I might be pushing my luck. So, I took what I got and was very happy (Inside I was jumping up and down!).

Then it was time for the hour-long ride home 😦
