Dear Diary – Today’s Special
I intended to post this yesterday but a solemn morning prevented me from doing so. Thursday night though, me and the homie D had Peruvian food at Pasion restaurant for the first time (I have 5 different homies that I call D btw. I really need to come up with new nic names for them, ‘cuz I’ve referenced at least 3 of them on here and I think even they’re starting to get confused lol). While I prefer the sea bass meal I had from their sister restaurant Fresca, the food was delicious nevertheless and the service was superb!
I just wish someone had told me that Pescado a lo Macho meant big ass flexible, fried fish. Instead the menu said crispy fried whole bronzino, peruvian shellfish stew, spicy aji amarillo sauce, and cilantro rice. Honestly, the fish was good but tasted like the fish my great-grandmother used to fry up for the fam when I was little. So nothing special, but yummy nevertheless. However, the rice, fresh seafood, and kick in the sauce made up for it.
Although I didn’t cheat on my budgeting that night, I did cheat on eating healthy yesterday. I had blueberries and low-fat cottage cheese for breakfast then made the mistake of walking by the fax machine at work and running into this. I MEAN LOOK AT IT. How could I NOT eat it? So this was my mid morning snack … and the reason I went to the gym on a Friday night 😦
