A Mediterranean Hang Out
This was the outfit of choice for my hang out last night that I mentioned in a previous post about tapas. As I perused my closet, I came to realize that I don’t have any proper flats! I only have very casual flats, to the point of them not being able to be paired with a decent top. Note to self: Search for cute black, brown and maybe new red flats (red ones I have are so old).
Anywho, this was comfy, warm (because it was uber windy yesterday) and the boots and necklace dressed up the outfit! PCH during rush hour is no fun so I was a little late!
So to start, this happened and it was delicious! And I specially loved the cup’s little message:
It was a Dogfish Apricot IPA 8.5%! A bit too hoppy for my liking and really couldn’t taste the apricot, but not too shabby.
Now onto the tapas. Lots were ordered, but keep in mind the portions are very small (each maybe size of a tea saucer)! I’ve come to realize that tapas really are just mini-appetizers because they were all so different! We had melted goat cheese tapa with layer of marinara on top, bistec tapa, red pepper & feta hummus tapa, mini lamb skewers with tzatziki tapa and a baked brie tapa!
Nearly every tapa came with a side of pita or mini toasted bread (except the meat ones) and I had one sliver of pita and a bite of the bread, but I knew I would pay for it in the next few days if I had more (it makes me bloated), so thank goodness for the veggie slices for dipping. Thankfully this guy is aware of how I eat because he asked how I got into crossfit and I was honest! He actually high-fived me for liking meat/chicken/bacon like I do hahah. And no I’m not going to mention that I also had a vodka water after dinner.
So I have a “hang out” tonight - I don’t like calling it a date because it’s really not that formal - and we’re going to a Mediterranean grill where they specialize in tapas. I’ve never had tapas! Do you guys have any favorites?
…..and what to wear arghhhhh…..
