I got up early, with every intention of walking at Ladybird Lake at 7:00 a.m. Then I started lamenting the fact that my weekends are not very relaxed, I’m always up early and running like crazy. So, I didn’t make it to the trail until 9:00. It was very warm and even more humid. I wanted to do the 4.1 mile loop to make up for some birthday splurges, past and in the future (celebrating all month, you know), so I trudged past the Pfluger bridge aiming for Congress. I stopped for water, then kept on. Over the long Congress bridge, and turned for what always seems like the home stretch, although its about 2 more miles. Then I realized I didn’t have my keys. So I had to backtrack about a mile to get my keys from the water station. Thankfully, they were still there. It was a long, humid, hot exhausting walk.
I has two very lovely Yellowfin Tuna fillets from San Miguel Seafood at the farmer’s market on Saturday. I pulled seasoned one with salt and pepper and olive oil, and baked it – then made tuna salad with homemade pickles and ate that over some Springfield Farms arugula for lunch. Fresh tuna salad is the best!
For dinner, a friend took me to Justine”s and I ordered the snapper. They were out of snapper and offered a sea bass replacement with hericot vert, which I ordered, along with an Endive salad with pears and bleu cheese. The salad was great, but the sea bass was not, and tasted a bit like dishwashing soap. I tasted my friend’s dish, and it was fine, but nothing spectacular. Justine’s is certainly a hit or miss for me. Everyone else enjoyed their meal. So maybe its just me.
