Happy Friday Friends!
Yes – the title of this post is true. Near the end you will see the glorious Banana Cashew Eggroll. It was magnificent!
I had a wonderful birthday yesterday! Thanks for all the well wishes! The day was great and it started with a bouquet of flowers delivered to me at work:
(the card reads “from your loving husband”) – aaaaaaawwwww.
8 hours of work felt like 500 because I wanted to get out of there so badly. After listening to a few voicemails at lunch time and in the afternoon (thank you to everyone who left me those lovely messages!) I was more than ready to go home. Once 4:30pm rolled around I left work, came home and changed and then we were off to dinner.
Jason and I had only eaten here once, but it was so good and we couldn’t remember why we hadn’t gone back. We started with some veggie potstickers:
And some delicious cocktails. I had a Gin and Ginger (ginger ale, gin, lime) and Jason had the Effen Passion (passion fruit juice, vodka, ginger ale):
They were so refreshing — the ginger taste was so strong. Yum! For dinner, I ordered a chicken/veggie stir-fry with a lemon sweet/sour sauce:
The vegetables were so fresh and crisp and the sauce was light and flavorful. Jason got the teriyaki chicken fried rice:
And now the moment you’ve been waiting for: The Banana Cashew Egg Roll
“rolled by hand – crispy, with fresh banana, roasted cashew, brown sugar filling, served with creamy chocolate sauce”
Oh man – I didn’t think we’d ever find a dessert that even comes CLOSE to the Nutella Burger in Vegas – but this was BETTER! The banana + cashew flavor was amazing. I need to make this at home. After dinner we went to the theater and saw Tangled
It was so cute!!! I loved it. See the little green chameleon on the guy’s head? He was my favorite character! Too adorable. And Mandy Moore’s voice is perfect for Rapunzel. We loved it!
Hopefully this weekend I’ll make enough time to learn how to use my birthday gift:
Thank you Jason for a lovely birthday – I love you!
***Have a great weekend everyone! Enjoy!***
