Left Over Yonder

September 28, 2011


Things were pretty laid back today at the bakery. Except for my appetite for sweets! That was on fiyah! So good, y’all, so good!!

Matt was very busy today:


Crossing my fingers for Imperial Pumpkin in 10 days! {Maybe a little longer…}


I came home at 7 after closing down to find that dinner had yet to be started. But that was just fine because we had a nice selection of leftovers in the fridge.


Radicchio + Wheatberry Salad reheated with BBQ chicken and bleu cheese.


Also served with dinner was a slice of Italian bread, toasted.


Sparkling water back in my life in bottle form. Waiting on a keg to be prepared!


Tonight, we WILL watch The Office! Maybe Glee too!

WHoo! The Glee was way better this week than last IMO.


2 Mary @ Bites and Bliss September 28, 2011 at 7:26 pm

Out of all the meat I have missed after becoming vegetarian, BBQ chicken has to be one of the top. Yum!


3 Heather @ Better With Veggies September 29, 2011 at 8:48 am

I bet a well-pressed firm tofu with BBQ sauce would help replace that flavor/texture you’re missing. I know it works well when I do Tofu Nuggets. :)

I’ve got the first two episodes of this new season of Glee on the DVR… and haven’t been able to watch them yet. I hope they’ve kicked things up a bit from last season (which was a bit lackluster imo). The Office is great, as usual. Enjoy! :)

i love throwing leftovers into one bowl and calling it dinner. delicious, easy, no clean up, and it cleans out my fridge!


6 Anna September 28, 2011 at 7:43 pm

I love Matt’s beer set up! Did he make that stand for it?

9 KathEats September 28, 2011 at 7:46 pm

BBQ chicken, yum! Looks like an awesome dinner. I bet the pumpkin roll was the gateway sweet!


12 Amanda- The Nutritionist Reviews September 28, 2011 at 7:53 pm

BBQ chicken and blue cheese sounds awesome together! I never thought of that before.


13 Lauren @ What Lauren Likes September 28, 2011 at 7:55 pm

Looks like a great dinner :)


14 Cait's Plate September 28, 2011 at 7:58 pm

Yay for The Office and Glee! We literally JUST caught up on those as well.

Dinner looks amazing – love the BBQ chicken addition. And guess what I just found in the back of my pantry (packing is good for something) WHEATBERRIES!! So excited!


15 Julie H. of Spinach and Sprinkles September 28, 2011 at 8:04 pm

I WILL watch Modern Family!!! …. Can I eat something from that bowl!
I want to be busy the way Matt is busy! —Just today though! He’s a busy bee…. alllll the time! :) Go Matt!


16 Sweet Marcella September 28, 2011 at 8:10 pm

Glee was good!!! Haven’t watched the new Office yet…

Matt’s beer sounds awesome!


17 Hillary September 28, 2011 at 8:17 pm

I’ve yet to see either of the new Glee episodes. Gah!

19 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga September 28, 2011 at 8:32 pm

Matt’s got quite the distillery going there! Pretty soon he’s going to need a liquor license to serve all that good stuff. Kidding :) I would love to watch the process b/c I find fermenting and bacteria and yeast really interesting. (geek alert but yes I love it)


20 Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) September 28, 2011 at 8:38 pm

Have fun chilling with Matt! My man is away and I’m missing our couch cuddle!


21 J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) September 28, 2011 at 8:54 pm

I was staring at the first image for a minute trying to figure out what could be under that blue cheese. At first I thought it was pasta! lol Looks delish. :)


22 kaila@ healthy helper blog! September 28, 2011 at 9:26 pm

MMmmm BBQ chicken sounds gooooood!


23 Ashley @ Coffee Cake and Cardio September 28, 2011 at 9:26 pm

I love that Matt brews beer! Can’t wait to hear how it turns out!! Happy Beer Brewing!


24 Angel7 September 28, 2011 at 9:59 pm

I love leftovers, because they are easy to prepare!!!



25 Deva @ deva by definition September 28, 2011 at 10:15 pm

That looks like an excellent dinner-so many flavors! What does Matt’s pumpkin beer taste like?


26 Matt September 29, 2011 at 7:50 am

It’s going to be a high alcohol (somewhere around 8-9.5%) imperial pumpkin beer – caramelly sweet, thick body, and made with cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves!


27 jane September 29, 2011 at 8:21 am

um can i come over? please?


28 Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife September 28, 2011 at 10:34 pm

I love leftovers for that reason : easy, delicious, fast. YUMM.


29 Khushboo September 28, 2011 at 11:50 pm

Leftovers are a blessing, especially after a long day! Matt’s beer station is super impressive!


30 Lara @TresLaLa September 28, 2011 at 11:56 pm

Such an impressive beer manufacturing plant!


31 Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table September 29, 2011 at 2:42 am

Homemade pumpkin beer sounds awesome.

Random – I just met a guy in the train in Italy who works on a Radicchio farm. Only in Italy… :)


32 Ali September 29, 2011 at 4:44 am

I love having leftovers for breakfast, am really not a tea fan :) really gives me the kick start to a splendid day. Nice post :)


33 Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin September 29, 2011 at 6:42 am

Glee was good this week! I think I’m developing a small crush on Puck. 😛


34 Molly @ RDexposed September 29, 2011 at 7:34 am

Did Matt construct the metal structure himself? Becuase that looks better than using the kitchen burner for brewing like my little brewer does.


35 Matt September 29, 2011 at 7:53 am

Yep, I bought some angle iron and used a hacksaw to cut it to the lengths I needed, then bolted it all together. It’s nice to be able to make a mess outside and not take over the kitchen. It probably cost about $150-200 to build.


36 Molly @ RDexposed September 29, 2011 at 4:50 pm

I can believe the clean up is better. I’m the bad girlfriend that offers to help but gives up after scrubbing the stove top for 20 minutes and getting nowhere.


37 Sally Anne @ PaleoRunnerGirl September 29, 2011 at 8:02 am

Wow! Brewing looks like one giant science experiment! How cool!


38 Hope @ With A Side Of Hope September 29, 2011 at 8:10 am

That bbq chicken looks delicious! :) I missed last night’s epsiode of Glee. I dvred it though. Last week’s episode was so boring. I hope this week’s was better!


39 Heather @ Better With Veggies September 29, 2011 at 8:48 am

Okay – your homebrewing setup is WAY more elaborate than ours – I’m in awe!


40 Sarah September 29, 2011 at 10:41 am

We still need to catch up on Glee from this week, I need to know if Quinn cleans up her act, lol!


41 Katherina @ Zephyr Runs September 29, 2011 at 11:23 am

I love The Office so much. Watching reruns right now<3


42 Kelli H (Made in Sonoma) September 29, 2011 at 4:34 pm

Nice brew set up! My bf has the same kettle.


43 Michael Tavallaei May 22, 2012 at 6:37 pm
