Check This Place Out.
Aura – Asian Fusion restaurant
My favorite weekend pastime is eating out. Sweets and I have a handful of fave dining establishments that get cycled through rather religiously. We prefer local restaurants as opposed to chain joints and become freakishly excited when we find a new place to eat that is not only unique to Lincoln, but amazing as well.
We were SO super impressed with Aura.The food was unique, yummy, and pretty to look at. The atmosphere and decor was clean, hip, and modern. And the service was impeccable.
We started with what we decided was probably the best spicy tuna roll we had ever had (and we eat a Crap-ton of sushi!)
I had a Gorgonzola salad, which had sliced strawberries, slivered almonds, Gorgonzola, and balsamic vinaigrette.
We ended our meal with a Chocolate Chai Cake that was kind of to-die-for. I forgot to take a picture though 😦
(Disclaimer: Aura is attached to a Holiday Inn, but don’t let that deter you …it almost did us)
New Sh*t Sunday
This is what I got on Sunday at Trader Joes…
I will be basing some of my kitchen experiments around these items this week. Except for the Wasabi Peas. Those are just a new snack that I tried. SO GOOD… especially if you desire clear sinuses.
(if you’d like to know what the hell New Shit Sunday is…. go here.)
Also on the experimentation list…. Sweet potatoes.
