Running and a dinner

Last night Jason and I had plans to go to dinner and a movie, but after being cooped up inside all day the last thing I wanted was to sit for two hours in a unpersonable theater. Instead of the movie we decided to take advantage of the weather and run a short two miles together, than proceed to dinner.

 In case you’re wondering the movie we were going to see was “Water for Elephants” with Reese Witherspoon and Rob Pattinson. Water for Elephants is probably one of my favorite books of all time. Did you get a chance to watch the movie? If you haven’t read the book I highly recommend it!

Can’t wait for another opportunity to see the movie when the time is right.

The weather was warm and a little humid with drips of rain in the air. I love the feeling of a short run. I like to run as fast as my body will allow, without worrying about time or distance.

In honor of Earth Day we tried a new restaurant that specializes in organic, locally sourced ingredients.

 Scottys Lake House was the perfect fit for the both us. Burgers and beer for him, conscious food for her.

I ordered the ahi tuna burger off the not burgers menu. $9.00 seemed like a big price tag for a normal (smallish) size burger, but once we started eating them we could  easily tell why. They were full of flava!

I didn’t want to eat all the bread but instead focused on the goods: garlic teriyaki seared tuna and asian cabbage slaw.

We ordered a basket of  house fries from the burgers bff menu, again smallish in size but not on flava! The thick cut fries came with three different sauces for dipping.

  • chipotle ketchup
  • garlic mayo


  • sun king beer mustard (favorite)

Neither one of was able to finish the fries, we did however finish our beers.

I had the Centennial Martyr Double IPA on tap that evening from thr3ewisemen. I could taste the honey and hints of Indiana flowers in every sip.

Centennial Martyr Double IPA
Amber to medium red 
ABV: 8.00% 
IBU: 92
Features: clover honey from hunter’s honey farm in martinsville, indiana and amarillo hops

After dinner we walked four doors down (literally) and tried another new establishment.

We were greeted by the young hip owner of zogurts with a friendly come on in. Even though they were closing in five minutes (didn’t realize until later), were offered samples and nutritional information on all ten flavors.

After a couple small samples, I opted for the Fat Trimming non fat chocolate yogurt. With only 80 calories per 4 oz serving it was treat I wasn’t going to pass up.

 Love culinary adventures!!! Especially when we get lucky and find good food.

Hope your weekend started out great 🙂
