Awww, look what the last photo I blogged from this computer was -
I miss the Bearsies!
The drive to Cville took….5 hours. Ugh. Luckily Matt and I worked out a deal where I didn’t have to drive. Sweet!! I studied some RD stuff. Wrote some freelance stuff.
Ate a date. It was perhaps the best date I’ve ever eaten. Food tastes better when you’re hungry
Then Matt and I shared this Probar. I LOVE Probars. I do not like that they are 360 calories and therefore 2 snack-size portions per package. Mini Probars would be awesome. And I think they win the record for the longest real food ingredient list
I’ve had this Koka Moka flavor for well over a year. Maybe from last year’s Summit!? It was delicious and chocolatey!
We made it!! I don’t believe Matt and I have every spent time in Cville not in bad weather, with company or on business. Hoping the next few days are a lot of fun! I’ve been considering this house hunting trip a “working” trip but really it’s all play!
For dinner we went to one of the restaurants on The List: Mono Loco.
We dined with Matt’s fraternity brother, Dallas, who is just finishing up UVA law school! (And newly engaged!! And moving to ….CHARLOTTE!)
Matt got a Spice-a-rita to drink. A margarita made with jalapeno. I had a few sips – it was awesome!!!!! One of the top 3 margaritas I’ve ever had.
When we restock our kitchen, we need more of this jazz -
For dinner Dallas got some kind of pork tostadas
And I hit the jackpot with the “Day at the Beach” filled with cod! This was a burrito in bowl form that had rice and beans on the bottom, lots of salad, corn, grilled cod,
And yuca fries!!! For some reason I had imagined these would look like Meghann‘s yuca fries It never occurred to me that they’d actually be…fried. But they were totally awesome and I ate ‘em up.
I had a white sauce on mine too – I asked for it on the side. Glad it did because it was really rich. I did some dipping though. Ate about 75% of my dish and really had to listen to my stomach, which was screaming “I’m stuffed” when my mouth was saying “feed me more!”
I was extra stuffed because we ordered a side of fried plantains!! I LOOOOVE plantains!! These were doused in an apricot glaze that was out of this world. I think I had 4 total? They were really rich, but oh-so-good.
After we said farewell to Dalla$, we went for a walk to digest. After all, walking is good for digestion!
After a nice round downtown, we settled down for a nightcap.
I didn’t want a whole glass of wine, so I decided on port!
You know how I’m always saying how we should spend $10 on foods that we love (like peanut butter or swiss chard) because we can so easily spend just as much on something (like wine or a dessert) just as expensive in a restaurant? I will not tell you how much this tiny, tiny pour cost!!
Tomorrow, the hunt begins.
