Date Night Plus 1

Since August, my b.i.l. has been living with us. And since them, Hubs and I have been trying to be more consistent with going out and taking advantage of our city in date form. Usually we go on our own but last night we were plus one with my b.i.l. in tow. Before going out last night, we had one of our usual suspects for dinner.

Morningstar Farms vegan burger
Sweet potato oven fries
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Thinly slice small/medium sweet potato
Lightly spray cookie sheet (or one lined with foil)
Bake for 15 minutes or until getting browned and flip
Sprinkle with fresh rosemary, minced garlic and parm
Bake for another 10-15 minutes or until desired crispiness.
Once on the plate we spray them with truffle oil and hit it with some truffle salt.

We ate kind of fast because we had to leave by 7:15pm for the play.

We saw An Oak Tree
This is a very interesting play for a number of reasons. There are only two characters, there is no intermission (read: it’s short) and one of the actors has never seen nor read the play before, much less rehearsed for it. Sounds crazy, right? What makes it so fascinating is that each night, Tim Crouch, who plays the hypnotist, acts with someone new. Last night was this guy.

Michael Gladis from Mad Men!!. Mad Men is by far one of my favorite shows. We were so excited to see that he would be playing the role of the father. There were a few other cast members from Mad Men in the audience too. There were maybe 60 people in this little tiny space. We sat next to this guy.

None other than Garrett Morris from SNL. It was a little surreal. But that’s LA for ya.

We loved this show. If you ever get the chance to see it, I’d highly recommend it. And because it was only 75 minutes long, when we got home we had this.

Spiced up popcorn. I would name the ingredients but I think that hubs will just have to do a guest post about it. He is the king of corn and has a million popcorn recipes.

Glad it’s Friday but sad because our plus 1, my b.i.l., will be leaving for Indiana tomorrow morning. We will really miss him! Hubs and I will be empty nesters again…but tonight will be Mike’s farewell dinner: Bibimbap, beer and a trip to yogalicious. Yum!
