I should rephrase that.
The perfect Saturday night after drinking too much on Friday night.
Because really, while I like to think I can pull off the shenanigans of my 21-year-old self of yore, I am 26 years old. My tolerance for imbibing the good stuff is weakening by the day. I can’t eat Taco Bell at 2:00am and rest easy knowing my metabolism will burn off that greasy deliciousness known as Mexican pizza by the morning. If I booty dance too much (practically a guarantee), my quads will be sore the next day. One night of drinking is plenty for this G’ma Everythingtarian, especially when her parents graciously come visit her at the early hour of 8:45am the next day.
And of course, this is all hypothetical.
I would never even DREAM of enjoying alcoholic beverages the night before my Everythingtarian family comes to visit and spending a leisurely breakfast hungover with them. Never would I ever.
But if this were to somehow happen sometime ever, I would suggest evening things out a bit (and by evening out, I mean apologize to your liver), by having the perfect Saturday night like I am having the perfect Saturday night right now.
Start with warm quinoa salad (<- recipe to come!) + grilled asparagus.
Add in the most gorgeous summer sunset from the rooftop of your friend’s apartment.
Make sure your friend’s name is Steph, because she is the best.
Walk around for several miles with Steph and with your frozen yogurt in hand (pomegranate froyo, yogurt chips, granola + blackberries, if you so choose), people watch and enjoy the most perfect summer night.
And last, but certainly not least, be in bed by 11:00pm.
Because don’t ever forget – you can take the Everythingtarian out of the G’ma, but you can’t take the G’ma out of the Everythingtarian.
What did YOU do tonight? Remember, sharing is caring!
