Sparrow and Wolf Restaurant Experience

Hey guys! This wasn’t my first time here but this small dish/appetizer was amazing and I have to tell you about it!

The “Ocean Parfait”


What is it? — Sea urchin, kizami wasabi, topped w/ toasted nori, and smoked trout roe.

As said on my IG, eating this was the funnest parfait I’ve ever eaten. Sparrow and Wolf really did the job of creating a small dish with a taste of delicious seafood, amazing flavors, and a perfect crunch. My honey and I really admire their bartenders and servers. To be frank, we judge restaurants by their drinks and service. Sparrow is definitely on our TOP 5 of off the strip restaurants in Las Vegas. I highly recommend stopping in for date nights, parties, and even if you want to grab a quick drink before going out on the town!

Here’s another plate we tried for the first time:

Country Pate En Croute.

(duck liver wrapped in a flaky dough)

served w/ pickled pear, brined mustard seeds, and petite arugula.

Petruchio Cocktail

(Gin, aperol, lemon juice, sugar syrup, orange bitters, and egg whites — Yum!)

FYI — You can definitely name out anything you desire to the bartenders and they are on their A-Game. I love gin, so I threw this drink at them and they delivered.

The location is great as well. It’s off the strip and in the spring mountain area. Go ahead and try this place out!

Healthy Blender Banana Flourless Dairy-Free Muffins

Say what???

Yes, I SAID IT, flour-less and dairy-free. (For all you people who are allergic out there like me)

I SNACK A LOT. Whether i’m at work or not, you can catch me snacking. HA! Lately, besides eating my mealprep, I’ve been snacking on granola bars, popcorn, and fruit at work. I suddenly thought, I need to eat a little healthier. Plus, I was getting a little bored with my routine. I did some research and found this lovely blog!

I attempted Kristine’s Banana Flourless Muffins and they turned out so well! Here’s the recipe! https://kristineskitchenblog.com/healthy-blender-banana-muffins-dairy-free-flourless/

How do you Calendar?

I’ve been asked many times, how do you stay on schedule? Well, it’s not always easy starting out. In college it was hard for me to plan ahead. As time progressed, I experienced trial and error. I remember when I first became a single parent, I had to get used to getting up early, getting my toddler ready for pre-k, making sure lunches were made, getting to work on time, making my appointments, and so on. It wasn’t easy. I eventually got ORGANIZED. I began using my PHONE CALENDAR for E V E R Y T H IN G.

As you can see… Hair appointments are super important…

I use my default phone calendar for the following:

  • Appointments
  • Payments (utilities, rent, car, ins., etc.)
  • My daughter’s school functions
  • Parties
  • Events
  • Date nights
  • Birthdays
  • Celebrations
  • YOU NAME IT

I am more of a quick, hand carry, and go type of person so my phone calendar is perfect for ME. If you have the same calendar load as me and memorize all your appointments etc., I want to know who you are!

Some Gals I know even use Erin Condren planners! They are super cute! https://www.erincondren.com/compare-our-planners?gclid=Cj0KCQiAh9njBRCYARIsALJhQkEqwtjPRCz0Cm7gyaWcvqIMF8HCIg7vefwZO6A9sDH1SdQ-4Ds5QS0aAjRoEALw_wcB

Long Story Short, do what you have to do to get organized in your life so that you can  reach lifetime structure!
