food and other lovely things.

It's no secret -- I love food, and I love eating. There, I said it. It's nothing to be ashamed about. However, when you are trying to lose some winter weight to get ready for your vacation {more on that later} it can be frustrating. Food restriction and dieting {ugh the D word} is just gross and no one wants to do it. 
Right now I've decided to get back into a work out routine (4-5 days a week) to supplement my love of food. I'm hoping to see some results and I'll be posting some work out tips from a non-workout person soon. But for now......enjoy the food post. 
I noticed a heart carved into our table when D and I went out for dinner the other night. Sushi love. 
there's nothing like sushi to really hit the spot, and not leaving you feeling disgustingly bloated.
brunch is one of our favorite meals. and when D orders his steak and eggs, I always make sure to sample : )
cappuccino with cinnamon. yum!
you can never go wrong with fresh fruit and a little powdered sugar!
a few weeks ago we went over to D's aunt and uncles house for dinner. His uncle is a chef and owns his own restaurant {shout out to the Italian Cucina in New Hope, PA} so needless to say, we get nothing less than 5 star meals when we're visiting. Seen above is fresh asparagus soup.
followed by homemade fettuccine alfredo made from scratch. This one had a lot of freshly ground black pepper so it gave the dish a nice kick.
raspberry mouse.
and the desserts.....oh, the desserts.
we celebrated D's belated birthday too with a coconut/vanilla cake which was seriously to die for.
Yup, we had cake among the other desserts seen above. We had to be rolled out that night.
and the first brunch you can eat outdoors at one of our new favorite brunch spots. This is something to celebrate. 
Seriously spring, where have you gone??

Hope you enjoyed the food lovin' and hope you all have a lovely day!
