I'll Have the Usual ...


My baked egg breakfast kept me full all morning. I had a light lunch - just a fruit smoothie with 1 cup unsweetened almond breeze, 1 banana, 1/2 cup frozen berries, 1 pack amazing grass, and 1/2 cup POM juice:





A refreshing lunch for a hot summer day!

I had a great afternoon running errands, and being a shopoholic. I picked up "Breaking Dawn," the final book in the Twilight series, the new Eminem CD, and some other necessities :-)

This evening the hubby and I met 8 friends for dinner at Korea House. We started with a dumpling appetizer:



My meal was the usual - Bee Bim Bop:





This has got to be one of my most favourite meals. Top 5 for sure.

Stay tuned tomorrow (Friday) for a special post!

When you love a dish at a restaurant do you order it every time you go, or do you switch it up? What is a meal that is in your top 5 favourite meals?

Gotta say, you're smoothie looks delish! I never want to put that much POM juice in anything b/c it's so expensive. ;)


There are a few restaurants where I will always order the same thing too.

yeah, i can't help myself, if i love something i tend to order it all the time! favourite meals.....we have an awesome vegan/vegetarian Thai restaurant across the street and i ALWAYS get the pad prik king. but my favourite meal is breakfast. cereal is my obsession :)

Love the name "Bee Bim Bop"!! Haha.

I TRY to get new things, but I have a habit of sticking to my favorite meals at restaurants. There is this mexican restaurant in Chicago by my sister's apartment that is a little whole in the wall, but has THE BEST burritos. In my top 5, fo sho! :)

I typically order the same thing. I should branch out more often!

Heather (Where's the Beach) said...

That's such a loaded question for me since most restaurants around here only offer 1 vegetarian choice :-(

Kat said...

New eminem cd is awesome! Love the song with Lil Wayne and Rihanna! I def order the same things at restraunts...Im such a creature of habit.

Once a find a "favorite" at a restaurant it is SO hard for me to branch out!

Alisa said...

I will order it frequently, but I try to mix it up on occasion. Both my husband and I love a char-grilled vietnamese dish at a place we can walk to.

Kacy said...

I really want to try that dish sometime, it always looks so good!

BusyB said...

HAPPY FRIDAY!

I always get the same meal everytime! Never switch it up. I did that once and I ended up regretting it.

Amber (Girl with the red hair) said...

I usually get something different since eating out is such a treat for us!

When we were in Sorrento on our Europe trip we went to the same restaurant two nights in a row and I had the same mushroom-cheese ravioli both nights. It was THAT good. Probably the best ravioli I've ever had!

I'm usually pretty monotonous...I know what I like when I go out and it's rare that I experiment! Boring, I know but I experiment ALOT at home!

Sarena Shasteen - The Non-Dairy Queen said...

Those dishes look amazing! YUM. Yeah, I am guilty of ordering the same thing. I can't help myself, if I love it, that is why I am going there. There is an asian place here that makes the most incredible eggplant dish...now I am hungry for it!

I"m so coming over tomorrow morning for one of those smoothies!

If I try a new restaurant, I order like 6 dishes...NOT KIDDING..I love trying everything!! But if I go to a regular restaurant I'll order the same tried and true thing...like pad thai or bee bim bop!! Love those things! -mymarblerye
