Magnificent Mother's day!

After getting some more work done in my room this afternoon, I went for a nice 4 mile run around my neighborhood before I got ready to go out for dinner.
I snacked on a silk soy yogurt with some nature's path granola and a few strawberries to re-fuel me after running, and hold me until we got to the restaurant.

For dinner we took my Mom to our favorite sushi/asian restaurant, Seven Moons. It was absolutely fantastic, as always!
To start, I ordered Miso soup, and we shared some seaweed salad. (I had about 1/3 of the picture)

For the main part of our meal, we all shared sushi rolls; I chose avocado and yasai (a mix of asparagus, carrot, cucumber and avocado) and the most exciting roll- fruit sushi!
I had 3 pieces of avocado, 1 of the yasai and 2 of the fruit.

My family also ordered some Vegetable Pad Thai, which they made vegan upon my request! I had a small serving of that as well.

It was crazy delicious, and I felt full but not stuffed at all! I love asian food. It was light and healthy but a great, balanced meal.

We visited my aunt at work, and my grandmother to wish them a Happy Mother's Day, and then headed to the Pod Head for some gelato for dessert! It was hard to chose tonight, everything looked so good! I wanted chocolate, and fruit... but the tiramisu looked sooo good- so I went with a combo- 1/2 chocolate strawberry and 1/2 tiramisu. Yum! It was a great way to end the night, and my Mom loved it!

It felt great to be able to spend a nice night with the family without worrying about having to do schoolwork afterwards!
Tomorrow's another cleaning day, and I'll be cooking dinner again for sure!
Have a great night everyone, hope your week started off right this Sunday!

Fruit sushi? Thats so cool! I have had sushi with mango in it before - I think it was called an Hawaii role- was yours all fruit?
