Double Date With The Family

Hey guys!

How was your weekend? My weekend went exactly to plan (well almost) and I loved every moment of it! Thats not to say that I didn’t enjoy the down time I got this afternoon though.

You’ve already seen my crazy shots from the Purple MegaMix Day (if not click the link!) and things continued looking up Saturday night.

The MIL, my mum, Simon and I went on a cute little mother-child dinner date. After much begging we finally took them to our favourite Asian spot- Wagaya.

Here’s some shots from the huge smorgasbord of food we had. I had a taste of the chicken curry fried rice and a bite of the pancake but felt the rice was too bland and the pancake too saucy; so I stuck to my tried and true Edamame and our favourite Beef Curry Hot Pot (vegies + tofu for me as usual) with ramen noodles, which I didn’t photograph because I’m sure you’ve seen them enough, right? ;) So here’s the pics of the food you haven’t seen from Wagaya yet.

A terribly blurry photo of cambert cheese fry which I refused to taste- cheese is only suppose to be melted I say.

Pork Pancake (too much soy sauce and aioli tasting sauce for me)

Chicken Curry Fried Rice, which I thought was quite bland but everyone else loved- I think I might have gotten just a bland piece. Also I think my expectations of the awaiting hot pot were just too high ;)photo 4-46

After dinner we realised whilst in the valley we were a ten minute walk to Freestyle. Simon and I haven’t been there in forever but a while back (to be honest it was when I was restricting badly and would eat one dessert item on a Saturday night) we went there a few times, and from what I remember it was a foodgasm- and apparently I was right ;)

As per my suggestion (I know my food) mum and MIL got my two favourite dishes. The bf went his flourless chocolate cake route which I never really enjoyed.

I didn’t get anything because I was stuffed and to be honest knew that in my overtired state eating sugar would be a one way ticket to overeating town, possibly with a stop off at sugar rush becomes addiction lane. Plus I was stuffed to the brim from dinner. (I had expected to come home and get into my dark chocolate, but this girl was going nowhere but bed by that time.)

So prepare yourself…because this just might get you craving ;)

It was a later night than I expected but I still woke up this morning ready to launch BodyAttack at another gym.

Not to outdone by the amazing Protein Powder Pancakes I had afterwards.

Then it was groceries, avocado + vegemite on toast and finally finishing Gossip Girl Season 6! And wow- that was an amazing finale.

  • Do you always order dessert if others are?
  • Do you prefer lots of little bits of food or one main dish?


  1. I love lots of little tastes-that way I get to try more which I like! :D And yes to dessert-always! :P

    A little bit of Qld is the BEST. I won’t ever share! I tried something else there once and was so disappointed. Qld every time for me :-)

    • BekatCrave says:

      HAHA! I know back in the day it killed me to share a bite, luckily the bf didn’t like the caramel that much ;) Yes I hate that- I tried the choc pudding one time and was like wahhh. BUT the dumplings give it a run for its’ money. Ps. Yay to finding another Brisbane based person! ;)

      • Leanne says:

        Wagamama’s (at Emporium) for dinner then Freestyle for dessert is our fav date night!

        • BekatCrave says:

          I’ve never been there but I’ve heard of it- is it Asian cuisine? Better than Wagaya? Haha sounds awesome! I compel you to try the dumplings next time (con your date into having the qld so you can still snag a bite) and get both dipping sauces!

    What a weekend! You always manage to accomplish so much in 2 days! Well done on listening to your body amongst those desserts. Its liberating to turn down dessert not due to self-imposed restrictions, but rather listening to what your body needs at the time (sounds like sleep for you!).

    • BekatCrave says:

      Haha, it only looks like so much because I write it out. Did you get plenty of relaxing in? Yes! I needed sleep and rest not sugar :)

  4. Yum! Those desserts look awesome. I wish I had the willpower to say no to dessert haha

  5. Glad you had a great weekend! Just stumbled upon your blog :) And yes those desserts look awesome!

    Those desserts look AMAZING! I can’t say no to ordering dessert, it’s my favorite part of the meal.Especially anywhere with flourless chocolate cake. It’s the key to my heart!

      Haha they are! I forgot are you brisbane based? You are aren’t you? In the city? Or up north? (I may be confusing your location with another American-turn-Australian blogger). If you’re here in Bris- go to Freestyle! Haha, you and my boyfriend’s ;)
