Charleston Eats

Thank you all for the kind words on my half marathon! Post running, there was a lot of relaxing. Kaylin and I also played ball and legos outside.

At night, we had an adult dinner at Hank’s.

Hank’s has AMAZING seafood.

We went to dinner with Josh’s parents and brother. The table ordered Hank’s oysters casino and crispy rock shrimp and calamari. I didn’t get a picture of this, but the shrimp was awesome (I’m not a calamari fan).

I tried their seasonal salad with goat cheese (again…excuse the dark photos):

Josh had the grouper which came with tasty lobster risotto:

and I ordered their peel and eat shrimp.

For dessert, the table got the peanut butter pie. It was a huge hit. Mmmm to the cookie crust.

Hank's Seafood on Urbanspoon

On Sunday, I went to hot yoga. It made my aching quads feel so much better. I also attended a food tasting that Christina invited me to at a new-to-me restaurant, Mi Xao.

I brought Kaylin with me and she was SUPER tired, so I didn’t get to do a lot of sampling/photographing, but I know Christina will have lots of pictures up soon. The food I tasted was totally delicious. Josh and I plan to get takeout from the restaurant soon.

Thank you for the invite Christina!

Today, I taught Attack & Step and got a lot of cleaning done. Kaylin also had a second date (play date ;)) with a boy friend. Good stuff!!

How was your Monday?

I wouldn't have shared the pie. I would have had it all for myself and taken a slice home.
