The party was a success – lots of fun and food. Larbs (a.k.a. Laura) and Matt leave on Tuesday for Boston with a big U-Haul. I’m hoping to visit in August with a frequent flyer ticket when summer school is over.
Brew #1 – Sam Adams in honor of Boston!
Appetizer spread with chips + dip, kielbasa, and crackers with hot pepper jelly cream cheese. I nibbled way too much – I had 2 kielbasa, about 5 chips (no dip) and about 5 crackers with jelly.
A cracker –
Brew #2. I had a few sips of other kinds and the keg throughout the rest of the night too, but nothing of significance.
The keg – Magic Hat It’s now dry.
The "Well House" that used to hold…well, a well!
Dad grills -
Lettuce, tomato, ketchup, mustard, avocado and a juicy burger on a whole wheat bun. I’ve been craving one of my dad’s hamburgers for a while now and this one hit the spot.
Hamburger , spinach salad with goat cheese + almonds (we made that!) and fruit salad . I had seconds on the salads – just a tiny bit more of each.
I’ve been looking forward to this all week:
End piece = lots of icing!! Plus a sliver of fruit tart.
No, one piece was just not enough.
And I hate to say I nibbled on another piece as we were putting it away…
I definitely ate too much tonight, but this is exactly why I eat less during the weeks and when I’m home and busy and there’s nothing exciting going on. After a night like this there’s no guilt because it just takes a few days of healthy eating to be right back on track. I’m glad I was able to fully enjoy a little of everything. I just hope I don’t have a sugar hangover again! I’m not really that full (because everything was spread out over a few hours) so I think I’ll be fine.
I was able to get 1.5 hours of Chem test done and have just a few tweaks on problems to go. Tomorrow’s going to be slam-packed with traveling, studying, prepping for the week, and hopefully a visit to the symphony again. Gotta carpe diem with the symphony now because there are only a few weeks left!
