Lunch came together quickly this afternoon.
I prepared a cheese and tomato bagelwich by melting Muenster cheese on a Toufayan everything bagel thin and smearing one half of the bagel with raspberry wasabi honey mustard.
Along with my bagelwich I enjoyed cucumber slices and a can of La Croix grapfruit-flavored sparkling water.
Funny story about La Croix… When Ryan was in college, he had a professor that would always drink La Croix and none of the students knew what he was drinking. At the end of the semester when the professor opened up the floor for questions one last time, a student raised their hand and asked whether or not he had been sippin’ beer every day! 🙂
Nope, just some bubbly H20.
This afternoon Ryan and I ran all over Orlando completing some wedding-related errands.
We worked up quite an appetite and when Ryan suggested heading to Houston’s for dinner, I was more than game!
Houston’s is one of our favorite restaurants, and we had not paid a visit to the hot spot in nearly a year.
Our last time visiting Houston’s was on the night that Ryan proposed on October 3, 2009. Needless to say, we had a great time reminiscing about the night we became engaged this evening.
We began our meal by sharing a bowl of chili with a side of tortilla chips.
The chili was good and the bites with the thick pieces of cheddar cheese were my fav.
Whenever we go out to eat Ryan and I always order different entrees, but tonight we selected the exact same meal.
The French dip sandwich!
This sandwich is unreal. Ryan has ordered it every time we’ve visited Houston’s and it is truly amazing. I always try to branch out and order something different, but tonight all I wanted was this sandwich!
The roast beef is served on a homemade buttery croissant (that they then smear with more butter) and comes with a side of au jous for dipping.
Though the meat is perfectly moist, the croissant truly makes the sandwich. I ate it UP.
So, so good.
Buckle up, friends, because what I’m about to show you is my absolute favorite dish I’ve ever ordered at any restaurant… EVER.
Houston’s hot fudge sundae comes with the creamiest whipped cream, the sweetest sugar-coated pecans and the thickest, most chocolatey hot fudge sauce in the whole world.
It is my favorite dish – appetizer, entree, dessert or otherwise – ever.
Before digging into the sundae, we topped off our big bowl with ample amounts of hot fudge.
I think we both said “This is sooooo good” and “This is unbelievable” at least five times.
You put two ice cream fanatics in front of that dessert and the end result a bowl that has been all but licked clean.
We did some serious damage.
After finishing our sundae and wishing the bowl would automatically refill itself, Ryan and I headed outside, behind the back of the restaurant to hang out by the lake.
We enjoyed looking out at the dock where we ate dinner the night of our engagement.
It was a lil’ too sunny, so we didn’t last too long, but it was still wonderful to enjoy the company of my fiancé while reminiscing about such a fun day in our lives.
Tonight will be spent messing with the dog on the couch while watchin’ a movie.
Father of the Bride, perhaps?
See you in the a.m.!
