Saturdate night led us to Clyde’s in Chinatown. z called to make reservations and requested that we be able to sit near a TV to watch the Caps game. I honestly thought they wouldn’t honor our request because we are right next door to the Verizon Center. But guess what…
…they did! We both had to sit on one side of the booth (fine with me!) so we could see the TV.
I started off with a delicious dirty martini. Really tasty!
For dinner I ordered the Mediterranean Mixed Grill Salad (with no chicken) :tomatoes, Portobello mushroom, olives, feta cheese, roasted onions, pine nuts, mixed greens and lemon-oregano vinaigrette. Every bite was amazing. I’d say I ate 98% of it ;)
Towards the end of the 3rd period we ordered another round. I switched to a Stella. Caps game went in to overtime (they looked like trash until the end) and they ended up winning 6-5! C-A-P-S! CAPS CAPS CAPS!
We slept in a little and then I had to get up and start my baking for my Aunt’s party. I had already made the two cakes yesterday, so I took them out of the fridge to take the chill off and then frosted them together.
My lovely two-layer white cake with white frosting (per the birthday girl’s request)! Don’t worry…I don’t plan on quitting my day job to become a pastry chef ;)
TWO DOZEN NAKEY CUPCAKES!
Yellow Cupcakes with White Frosting.
z was serenading Fievel ;) Guys with guitars? So hot…
Two Dozen Vegan Thumbprint Cookies!

My aunt never asks us for presents…only homemade cards. This year she got one from me…
…and one from Fievel :)
Jah is always the grillin’ man!
I dug right in to these babies!
So much food!
Plate #1: Pita w/ hummus, pickled cukes, deviled eggs, potato casserole, yukon golds, broccoli slaw, veg baked beans and green bean casserole! WOA!!
Plate #2: I was overly ambitious with this one and only finished about half of it…
Happy 60th Birthday Aunt K!
There was a cupcake in there somewhere too…and lots of Diet Coke.
I was supposed to take today off from the gym, but all that food made me want to go for a little bit. I knew I wanted to get in and out, so I decided to see how fast I could do two miles. I did it in 19:32, but I know I could have done it faster. Felt darn good. Then I stretched my body out like crazy!
Good Sunday :)
