A simple Saturday

I had one of my favorite kind of Saturdays. I had a simple one.

I got up early and met my friend, Carmela downtown. She was on the hunt for fabric and materials for a project. I was scouting out the cost of flowers for an upcoming party. We were victorious. Carmela found the fabric and materials she was looking for within an hour. I got lots of great ideas and picked up some flowers an plants. We were downtown for only 2 hours, which is amazing. I was still half-asleep. Had I thought about it, I should have taken Carmela to lunch. Her birthday was earlier in the week. (Carmela, I owe you one.)

After my jaunt into downtown, I took a fat nap. Rob woke me from my delicious nap and told me he was in the mood for Ceviche & Cerveza. To be more budget-conscious, we have limited our eating out. Lucky for him, he caught me in the right mood. We headed to one our favorite places for ceviche – Don Felix.

Don Felix

I ordered an Inca Kola, which tastes like Bazooka Joe bubblegum.

Rob ordered his cerveza. I decided to also have a Margarita, which I know is not Peruvian, but is good nonetheless.

We ordered a few dishes to share.

Saltado de Pollo
This dish was okay. They went a little too heavy on the soy sauce.

Calamares (sp?)
This was breaded and fried to perfection.

Our favorite – Ceviche Mixto
This was the perfect blend of fish, shrimp, squid, and octopus.

Happy Rob enjoying his meal.

I’m even happier enjoying my drink AND my meal.

This was my simple saturday.
