A spontaneous “eat out” suggestion by The Cat. Just made it to one of our current favorite neighborhood spots, Zia’s (on the dot). Server could have said we were too late (wouldn’t have faulted her, traffic was terrible), but she gave us a ten-minute window to order past the happy hour close (extra tip).
In the rush, The Cat ordered the appetizer.
Prosciutto Wrapped Melon w/ Honey Balsamic Glaze
The Cat not used to fruit and cured meat together. Not her palate. That’s okay, The Mouse deconstructed it, ate the fruit for dessert, took the Prosciutto for lunch. Win-win.
Since no time to prep The Cat’s lunch, ordered a little bit more for planned leftovers.
Tomato, Basil Soup
Happy hour price, $1.00 for a cup!
Pear and Blue Cheese Salad
Mixed greens, bleu cheese, pear, mac-nuts, red onion, red wine vinaigrette.
Zucchini, mushrooms, beets, bell pepper, sun-dried tomato pesto.
The Mouse’s, see, still on track with the “eat more veggies” goal. 🙂
The dishes with the goal of taking home for The Cat’s lunch.
At the end, I think we saved at least $6.00 at happy hour prices. Good deal!
One more day until the weekend, woo hoo!
Enjoy. Eat well.
