J and I recently signed up for boot camp and I keep hearing that we don’t need it. I am not sure that anyone needs boot camp. I sometimes think that it should be illegal or highly investigated into as torture. The only problem with it is that people actually pay money to do this and sign up to put their bodies through absolute hell. It is true, J and I are fairly healthy people and our height hides the fact that there is room for improvement. Little do people realize that the tall and gangly like us also have pot bellies. We’re both past 30 now and eating a big dinner and lying on the couch is finally catching up to us. I remember the days of eating breakfast, snacks, sometimes 2 lunches (one being McDonalds, sorry mom), chips after school, a big dinner, dessert and then parking myself in front of the TV with popcorn or making some toast slathered with peanut butter. Now a days I couldn’t possible eat this much and lay around if my life depended on it.
I think the best part of being 30 is that our friends are also 30 or turning 30. It’s nice to have some people around you that are also going what you’re going though. What is the old saying? Misery loves company? I guess 30 year olds also fall into that category. It’s about the age when you realize that it’s too hard to stay out late and party, we can’t eat our faces off without gaining weight, and we have responsibilities like mortgages. At least we all still look young!
It was a friend of ours 30th this past weekend and his super sweet wife planned a surprise dinner for him at Coza in Langley. I have been here before got the odd business lunch but I haven’t been here for dinner. It was absolutely packed with people and the aroma of food was wafting around everywhere. They have a pretty big open kitchen right in the middle of the restaurant.
J and I ordered the surf and turn platter for 2 which comes with a salad to start, bread, and a platter with 2 types of steak, prawns, spaghetti, mashed potato and veggies. The salad was good, your typical Caesar salad so no complaints there. The bread comes with olive oil and a balsamic reduction which J thought was overly sweet but I enjoyed. The best part of the meal was of course the surf and turf platter. There was the perfect amount of food for 2 people and everything was cooked great. The strangest thing to me was that I think I liked the spaghetti the best. There was nothing wrong with the steak or prawns but it just didn’t wow us like the spaghetti did. It was a tomato based pasta but had some pesto on top which exploded with flavour. I would definitely come to Coza again but next time I want to eat strictly the pasta YUM!
Oh and by the way, we survived our first boot camp class….even at 30!
