Hi all! I’m taking a break in Hillsborough to post breakfast and lunch before I drive back to Charlotte. I am in the middle of a great audio book so I’m eager to get on the road!!
I got up early this morning to get in another great run around my grandparents’ neighborhood. I looped all around and will sure miss it when they move. I did about 4.5 miles, I’m guessing.
For breakfast, oats again This time with dried peaches, 2% milk, cinnamon sugar, raspberries + strawberries and TJ’s Trail Mix that I brought from home.
My grandparents have always drank instant coffee, so I decided to try some. It was actually pretty good and so quick to make!
And the mothers’ portions!
Our flight was fantastic – on time, efficient, quick. Three cheers for SouthWest! I had peanuts and a few pretzels along with seltzer mid-flight to tide me for our late lunch.
For lunch my parents and I walked to the Gulf Rim, one of Hillsborough’s charming restaurants. The space has changed restaurant concepts many times since we’ve lived here, but I like the flare they have going on. Here’s a shot of the store front
My dad and I split the infamous Flyin’ Mayan, a burrito filled with black beans and sweet potato with all the classic fixin’s and a mole sauce (I got them all on the side). SO GOOD! I’ve got to remember this combo to make at home!
I had 1/3 of it with a little of each side
I also ordered a side salad with a lime-cilantro dressing – yum! Can’t have lunch without some veggies. But it was heavy on the garlic, so I’m fuming now
From above, with unsweet tea –
I’m hoping my grandfather’s pitch makes it on TV tonight. It’s supposed to happen at 6:50. He’s a huge Orioles fan and his company, Legg Mason, arranged the event in honor of his 90th. He’s been practicing his throw all weekend and had on his jacket at breakfast
To the highway I go!
