I did it! I made it to a 101 posts (almost as cool as “101 Dalmatians” — a movie that I almost FORGOT). When I started this blog my goal was to develop a blog which addressed questions of dressing professionally in graduate school, for interviews, networking events & work. Unfortunately, and fortunately, my blog took a turn for food. I guess your true passions end up shining bright. I still love make up and clothing (all things material) but I also love cooking and my relationship with food.
I am sure you can think of a great meal you had with friends, a boyfriend, your husband, your parents, sister, brother, and enemy. You associate food with certain memories. For example, I was just thinking of ramadan and how I made a very dear friend of mine a chili ragu from scratch and we both ate it when the sun came down or when my mother came into town and we had Cafe Bombay with a dear friend of mine. I remember feeling excited and all jittery — the food was great and so was the company!
My former boss from the summer would always take me out to eat at the best places around town, and it’s something I cherish and value. Over lunch he would express to me thoughts on personal matters & work. We had the BEST burger at Bocado. I have since gone back 4 times and have gotten it each and every time. He taught me certain values for when I become a practicing attorney — like tell your clients upfront what situation they’re in, settle the case if it’s a bad case & play fair and square. Although basic principles, these are issues that can be over looked when hiding “simple texts” in discovery or when more money could be made by NOT settling.
Okay here are some events that occurred between post 1 to post 100:
We had okay appetizers provided at Emory for the Great Gatsby Casino Night! Also for being okay, I definitely had 10 sliders!!!!! LOL My law school best friend is to my right!
Seafood Bonanza! I wanted to make my BFF a special surprise dinner. We enjoyed this so much that after I finished my 2nd year of law school we had “Seafood Bonanza Part II” and it was great!!
My boss gave me this recipe (which I posted here) I LOVED IT! The filet mignons were purchased by my BFF, who had received a gift card to Publix from his incredibly sweet grandmother! As soon as we got home from work we started cooking away and were literally done within 20-30 mins!
Nuevo Laredo: my favorite Mexican restaurant in ATL. The wait is always an experience & the food is always worth it!
This awesome, AWESOME, BARA CHIRASHI BOWL at RA Sushi (I’ll be updating this with a full post about my experience there). Spoiler Alert: I LOVED IT — definitely go there for lunch!
My BFF took me to this awesome Chinese place in Sandy Springs! I LOVED IT! The food was so fresh, the atmosphere was nice. It was a great day. We went for Chinese food, and then had to literally jet over to the mall so I could pick up this cardigan that was on sale at Express and then we picked up Cinnabon. Such a fun evening!
Have a great day friends. Thanks for following me, supporting me and for reading my random banter. I appreciate each and every single one of you!
