Making it a Netflix Night

by Meghann on October 3, 2009

It’s only fitting after having a DVR afternoon to make it a Netflix night. ;)

I’m finally getting around to catching up on season 3 of Dexter. Gotta love the serial killer do gooder.

Oddly enough, Dexter the TV show wasn’t the only run in I’ve had with the name today. Earlier this evening I met my parents for dinner at Dexter’s the restaurant in downtown.

The other week I discovered Dexter’s in Thorton Park and have been looking for an excuse to eat there ever since. My parents and other various family members were in town for a broadway show, so I saw it as the perfect opportunity to direct them to the area.

Truger was listed as the wheat beer of choice on the menu. I ordered a glass to confirm the decision myself.

Mmmm… pretty good. Of course I really am a fan of any wheat beer.

I was really impressed with Dexter’s salad menu and found myself wavering between a few of the choices listed. In the end I went with the Rustic Cast Iron Skillet Salad

a warm & tasty set of toppings including oven dried tomatoes, grilled asparagus, artichokes hearts, rosemary roasted potatoes, feta cheese chunks over mixed crisp greens with a lemon dill dijon dressing on the side and blacked salmon

The blacked salmon was well seasoned and a welcomed addition to the salad. The rich vegetables, salmon and potatoes made for a very filling delicious entree.

After we said our good byes I had a massive craving for chocolate and ice cream. I desperately wanted to stop at one of the magical ice cream shops on my way home, but instead I tried to be a good girl and waited until I got home to pry into some of the frozen treats in my freezer.

I heated up a Vitalicious Brownie with some Coconut Ice Cream. Yum!

Now it’s time to get back to Dexter and try to get some sleep before my 12 miler tomorrow. In bed before 9:30 on a Saturday evening? It’s just how I roll. ;)
