March photo a day

I love photography, so I am joining in on the March Photo a Day challenge to spice up my photography a bit. Care to join me? I enjoy looking at everyone’s pictures on Instagram. If you want to follow me, my user name is lmp831. I’ll likely follow you back!


3-1-12: Up. Taken from the bus this morning on my way into work. US Bank building in downtown Milwaukee. I was up on the top floor last fall and it’s the tallest building in Milwaukee, so it made me think of the word up.



Flat Top Grill in Wauwatosa

Last night, I went to Flat Top Grill in Wauwatosa with my friends, some of whom I hadn’t seen since June!


I signed up to receive information from the restaurant and got a coupon for a free appetizer. We chose to share edamame with sesame and spicy dipping sauces. Loved the taste of the sesame sauce!


Our waiter explained how the ordering process works, but I clearly wasn’t paying attention and didn’t bother to read the board in great detail because I missed ordering the bread and would have gotten some greens on the side too. I was able to get a couple of pieces of bread (thanks to our nice waiter) and lettuce (thanks to my friend Kim).

Basically, you get to pick out various vegetables, a sauce and the meat of your choice, brown or white rice and then the cooks mix it all together for you. We had to ask for rice because they were out of it when we went up there. The staff were all so accommodating and sweet when we needed things they were lacking or when we were forgetful about things.

Here’s my meal. I picked various vegetables, potatoes and vegetarian meat. The sauce was customized by someone that works there after I told her what types of dishes I like. I tasted the first version and told her it was too sweet. She spiced it up a bit and it was perfect.


Unfortunately, Loni and I weren’t feeling so good by the end of our meal and I was still feeling sick this morning. Just could have been random, maybe too many veggies or something else.

I would recommend Flat Top Grill, but I do have to caution that buffets where various food is out in the open makes me a little nervous, especially because I have a sensitive stomach and because I did get sick last night from the meal.

In the end, it was so nice to catch up with my girl friends, chat about iPhones, our lives, their kids, travels, weddings and future places people are going to live in (Guten Tag Switzerland for my friend Laurie)!

P.S. my instagram photos aren’t so great and doh, I figured it out. I’ve been feeling so out of it this week because I’ve been going nonstop at work and after work. My temporary plastic cover is still covering my camera lense on my phone, so it all makes sense now as to why the flash wasn’t working properly last night. I need a case stat but I am still researching!
