Thanks so much for your congrats on the job situation! I really didn’t realize how much stress I was under until it all fell into place. I was so happy working at home again on Friday. Hopefully on Monday I will feel the same LOL!
Had such a lovely relaxing breakfast at Panera Bread today.
Then we picked up a couple things at Home Depot and looked at the funner parts of our remodel, like the toilet and sink and flooring. Then we started thinking about our upstairs bath as well. I told John that we should probably finish the downstairs one first 😀
We spent the majority of Saturday working on the half bath. Now that inspections are done and passed, we could glue everything together and make all the wiring hot, which took most of the day. The worse jobs are over now!
Tested our plumbing 😯 All lines are okay except the connections for the washer. We are going to have to solder those in place. We truly are learning a lot on this project and realize how much more we actually can do ourselves and do it right. I am glad to be finished with being under the floor, though, which actually is done barring a disaster. Now are getting into the fun stuff!
I had a few snacks today – these came into the house
Pretzel M&Ms. D’oh! They are up high, that’s for sure.
We wanted to go out to dinner to celebrate my raise and being able to work from home and passing the plumbing/electrical inspections, so we headed up to Lake George. We were looking a different restaurant that we hadn’t tried before, but couldn’t find it. A lot of things are still closed because it is not the season yet. Lake George is pretty cold right now.
Still frozen except right near shore!
This is a place we like to sit when we get here from biking in the summer.
Since we couldn’t find what we were looking for, we chose Ali Baba instead:
I like the inside of this place. It’s a small restaurant, but nicely decorated.
They have a big oven that they cook the food in, which has beautiful tile. I wish this picture had come out better. I was trying to not get the other patrons in the shot.
John and I split 2 different entrees. He had a falafel pita:
It had a cucumber yogurt sauce and a spicy reddish sauce on it. It was a little too hot for John, but I quite liked it. The pita was delicious as well. I think it had to be fresh made judging by the texture and flavor.
I had a cheese pide (pronounced pita – why they didn’t spell it that way is beyond me). This had egg, mozzarella, feta cheese and a bit of spinach. Or I think it was spinach.
Plus a ton of garlic. Holy clove batman! It was pungent but absolutely delicious! The crust was crispy on the bottom and chewy on the inside. Very flavorful!
The service wasn’t the best. Friendly, but not much in the way of checkbacks. I keep thinking about how good these dishes were. I think I liked the pide better, but I would get either again for sure!
All in all a nice weekend and I actually am looking forward to working tomorrow (for real!).
Question: Do you like Mediterranean food?
