mr&mrsjamar go on a date!

31 Mar

tuesday was our wedding anniversary!  it’s crazy to think that jason and i have been married for so long.

we celebrated early on sunday by going to trattoria la strada (we used a $25 off of $50 coupon that we bought from restaurant.com for like $1), an italian restaurant downtown near horton plaza.  we went there on a date five years ago after a really bad fight and we’ve always wanted to go back.  the menu has totally changed since then and they no longer served gelato (sad face) but we had a good time.

we started with bruschetta topped with caramelized onions, ricotta, and pesto.  yum!  jason ordered arrabbiata penne and i had seafood risotto (i generally default to risotto or scallops when we go to nicer restaurants).  the risotto was pretty yummy!  cooked properly and very flavorful.  jason liked his penne too but i thought it was just ok.  for dessert we ordered tiramisu and an affogado macchiato (a vanilla gelato float in espresso!).  i loved them both.  have i mentioned how much i loooooove italian food??  🙂

anyways, the restaurant is sort of pricey for the quality of food, but with the coupon it was well worth it!

also, bonus score.  we went to urban outfitters after dinner (it was across the street) and i found jason a nice wool jacket for only $30!   and parking was free because we parked at horton plaza, which now gives free 3 hour validation from random machines.
