Tuesday! I had a Skype interview today with a Startup company that I would love to join. The questions were math and statistical questions that required me had to calculate manually. It had been forever since I calculated anything complicated in my head….what are the points of computers and phones and software then? I did answer all the questions correctly, but I took much longer than I wanted. Hopefully I did not bomb my interview to badly.
Lunch: I wanted to save my stomach for dinner tonight. My brother in law was planning to make grilled citrus salmon and mushroom risotto. Yum! Thus, I opted for steamed cabbage and soy sauce. Healthy and filling!
I went to pick up my roommate from work after dinner with my family. I was lucky enough to be there when she was creating a new desert for the Fall season. In this desert, there were quick fried little cubes of squash, lemon, candied quinoa and so much more I could not even remember. I love living with a chef!
After the new desert tasting, we decided to opt for a quiet and relaxing night so we stopped in at Alma, the little restaurant near the University of Minnesota campus. I started with a cup of herbal tea, and was then treated to the delicious “Crispy mung bean pancake” dish consisted of (squid, clams & scallion-sesame sauce). I loved the clam, it was done just right with the perfect combination of sauce! We also tried the the “Passion Fruit Pudding Cake” with blueberry merengue, strawberry, blueberry-lime sorbet. The desert was good but was a bit too sweet for my taste. Overall, I would highly recommend this restaurant. http://www.restaurantalma.com/menu.aspx
