Hello! I hope your last day of 2014 has been a good one. Scott and I had a very spontaneous afternoon that brought us back to Ann Arbor today.
If you clicked over this morning, then you already know that we made the hour drive over and back yesterday for a halftime performance at a University of Michigan Basketball game. This time we were determined to try out a new-to-us restaurant before returning home!
Main Street is filled with a strip of great spots we would like to experience, but today we were on a mission to be in and out in half an hour. I looked up restaurants in the car and stumbled upon Café Zola.
The original menu was influenced by French cuisine with breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner options. They offer a variety of sweet and savory crêpes, along with sandwiches, salads, waffles, specialty entrées, and pastries.
Their menu today also features Italian, Mediterranean, and Turkish inspired cuisine! Scott ordered the Adana Kofte with spiced Turkish lamb meatballs.
I ordered the open-faced Omelette Provençale with the same rosemary-garlic roasted red skin potatoes on the side.
I loved the combination of caramelized onions, sautéed mushrooms, scallions and fresh garlic! Everything was really good.
This trip was a quick one. We ordered as soon as we sat down, then politely asked for our check as soon as we got our food. We had a furball named Roadie waiting for us in the car!
So… why did we drive all the way over to Ann Arbor and back just to hurry through lunch? My husband and his awesome memory (or lack there of) to grab all of his belongings. That’s why.
We couldn’t find his phone after the game yesterday. We went back into the arena to search for a while, then finally gave up. He received a call today with good news that it was found and in the hands of the Athletic Director. He left it on top of his laptop (!!!) and both items were taken to their office for him to pick back up. Smooth move, buddy.
Roadie came along for the ride and the three of us enjoyed our time on the road, even though it wasn’t really planned.
Now I have some cleaning up to do before a couple of our friends come over to celebrate the New Year. We aren’t doing anything crazy this year.
Alex is bringing her pup over to keep Roadie company while we go out to grab sushi for dinner. We plan to come right back and break out some games and wine until the ball drops at midnight!
Ringing in the New Year will definitely be low-key this year. I’m perfectly content with it.
*Wishing all of you a very happy and safe New Year!*
I’ll see you tomorrow with a new at-home Tabata workout to help kick off 2015 sweaty and strong!
