Dinner at The Melting Pot on Friday was nice. I’d wanted to go there for a while now, and it was fun and I’m glad we’ve been now. But I don’t necessarily need to go back. It was really expensive, considering you’re just paying for vegetables and raw meat, and it took a long time, and also I had to wash everything we wore that night because the smell of the cooking broth just gets into everything. Pictures!
GG during the cheese course. Probably my favorite course.
This was my meal. I was still a little nervous about cooking raw meats, so I got the vegetarian meal. (If you are a vegetarian, this is pretty much your only choice for a meal. Especially if you don’t eat cheese or milk [and therefore milk chocolate]. You’re also limited to cooking only in canola oil.)
There are many more photos from dinner in my flickr stream if you’re interested.
Amazingly, the cats let us sleep in on Saturday morning. Usually they freak out if I haven’t gotten up to feed them by about 8 AM, but we ended up sleeping in until around 11! It was crazy! We had a couple hours to get ready, and then I went with GG to his band’s show at the Wachovia center. They were playing before the Wings lacrosse game, and a little during halftime, and a little after the game. It was fun – some other band wives/girlfriends were there, and since they didn’t play during the game, we all just got to hang out together for most of the time. I took a kajillion pictures, but I haven’t gotten them off my camera yet. So when I have them on the computer, I’ll put a link here. [Edit - 7:55 PM] Pictures are here. [/Edit] The game really ended up being an all day thing, and we didn’t get home until after 11 PM. We attempted to watch Saturday Night Live but ended up falling asleep. Eventually we woke up and went to bed.
This morning, the cats again didn’t try to wake me up. This is nice and all, but a little weird. I’m used to them being my weekend alarm clock. GG and I went out to do some errands in Plymouth Meeting. He got some t-shirts at Old Navy (just nice plain ones, for once!), I got a couple pairs of shoes, we got some DVD/video storage boxes at Ikea, and some craft supplies at Michael’s. And we had a $3 lunch at Ikea: three hot dogs, a bag of chips, and a drink with free refills. Perfect.
