There and back again from dinner
I got some of my writing done this afternoon and snacked on some trail mix/dried fruit mix from Costco around 4:30 to tide me to an early dinner at 6. I added a few chocolate chips after I took the photo too!
We went uptown for dinner to meet Annie, who is starting the nutrition program at Winthrop! We met her at Dish, a “pseudo soul food” restaurant that you’d think would be vegetarian until you saw “chicken” on the menu.
Annie was great – a Bostonian who went to college in upstate NY and now works at Davidson and is starting at Winthrop soon. We have crossed many paths!
Matt and I started with beers. I wasn’t planning on drinking, but when I saw Shock Top on draught I had to get one. I drank half and gave the rest to him.
For dinner I got the veggie plate where you get to choose between all these different sides…(although our prices were slightly higher than these online ones!!)
Vegetable Plate • • • 3 vegetables • $5.95 • • • 4 vegetables • $6.95
Comes with a biscuit and deviled egg
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Macaroni & Cheese
I had black beans (which were delish! I ate about 2/3 of these)
Collards, which were slightly sweet and so greeny in a good way
My deviled egg (shared half with Matt, who didn’t get one)
The biscuit (also shared half with Matt)
And the side salad
It definitely tasted home cooked and fresh! You can see in the background that Matt got a pimento cheese grilled sandwich, of which I had a delicious gooey bite.
We listened to the Pirates of the Caribbean on the way home on the new iPod. This phone gets cooler by the minute!!!
And I had an Adora for dessert upon arriving home –
We’re off to finish Out Of Africa. I need a shoulder massage – I think I have a caffeine headache I had 2 cups of tea around 2pm to try to fix it, but I’m still aching.
Going to bed early tonight because Matt isn’t working until 7 and we’re going to workout together early.
