date night, southern style
every girl loves a good old-fashioned date night, right? right. i don't know if this one qualifies as old-fashioned (i didn't dress up or put on lipstick or anything, and jeff wore a nike windbreaker), but we got out of the house on a monday to wine and dine over candlelight.
(this is something we're trying to do more often, leave the house on a whim. sometimes we start to cook and then stop halfway through and decide to go out instead. because pretty soon? we won't have the luxury of spontaneity, what with having to pack a diaper bag and all.)
my favorite gourmet pizza place is closed on mondays, so we decided on screen door, a super popular restaurant in southeast portland that serves southern cuisine. let me tell you, it felt good to gorge myself on something besides fruit and vegetables! (pregnancy regimens are tough!) i had catfish, mac and cheese, a bean salad, hushpuppies (fried cornbread? yum.) and bubbly pear juice. jeff had a beef brisket. we've been eating leftovers for days.
