I'm in love...with Mongolian Grill food

What can I say? Today was again an awesome day at the beach! I really enjoyed the sunshine today. We had a huge thunderstorm wee in the early hours of the day. So, I think it cooled it off just a touch and eased the humidity a bit, too.

We did a lot today. Beach. Ocean. Pool. Beach. Pool. I read a lot. I'm only a few pages away from being done with Uglies. We went to the gym again this afternoon. After that.... I was looking out the window of our room. Jesse pointed out that it looked like there was sand at the bottom of this one pool by our hotel. I said that I thought it was just painted the color of sand...but then he pointed out how the people that walked over it walked different through that part. He was right. It looked like they were kinda sinking in it. So, we decided to go down there and see what was up with that. It really was sand! But not sand sand. was like itty bitty pebbles that were the color of sand. Very cool.
For dinner we did go to the Empire Fire place. It was sooo freaking good. I loved it! In case you've never heard of it, ( I hadn't) first you go up to the buffet. It has uncooked meats (like beef, ham, lamb, shrimp, scallops, chicken, sausage, pork, etc.) and it also has raw veggies (like broccoli, scallions, onions, green peppers, sugar snap peas, portabella mushrooms, bean sprouts, cabbage, etc.) So you put what you want into a big bowl...and take it to a counter. Behind the counter they have lots of different sauces (oyster sauce, Mongolian sauce, lemon water, garlic water, ginger water, wine, chili sauce, and oil) and you can choose what you want or just tell the guy if you like it spicy or not spicy. Then they throw it onto this HUGE round very very hot grill. They toss it around a bit and a minute or so later they throw it onto a plate and...then you can take it back to your table and enjoy! It was really really good.

They also had an ice cream bar...with............MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP!! Its my favorite!! I ate 2 bowls of the stuff! I ate a ton more than Jesse even. haha. I didn't even feel full. I don't know what came over me! I just got finished watching So You Think You Can Dance. I'm so excited about it because tonight was the first night where the top 20 were dancing for real. :) I was really impressed with all of them! I think this will be a really good season!

I'm slightly upset that tomorrow is my last day to lay on the beach. :( I'm going to try to make the most of it!
