Lunch Of Yesteryear

October 8, 2011

The drive from Cville to Hillsborough is so much nicer than the drive to Baltimore! All through the beautiful countryside without a lick of traffic. The ride went by so fast!

Lillis Billis greeted us on the porch!

We sat down to lunch with mom and dad.

We brought the bread + dessert and they had sandwich materials and fruit salad plus a platter of radishes, black olives and pickles

I made an open-faced sandwich with tomato, avocado and jack cheese

Dad knew we were coming so he stocked up on pumpkin beers!!!!

I’m not sure which looks scarier-the first picture of the cat of the skull on the beer bottle.


2 Molly @ RDexposed October 8, 2011 at 12:59 pm

oops…or the skull**


3 Khushboo October 8, 2011 at 1:01 pm

Oh my daze- avocado + cheese = heavenly combo…even more heavenly is that dessert!


4 Mom October 8, 2011 at 1:02 pm

Lillian says she’s really not that scary, but she agrees the skull on the bottle is!

7 Amanda- The Nutritionist Reviews October 8, 2011 at 1:03 pm

Love the cat’s face haha. That fruit salad looks great too!


8 Amy October 8, 2011 at 1:09 pm

I mean this nicely, but is there something wrong with that cat?


9 Lynn @ the actor's diet October 8, 2011 at 1:10 pm

That cat and dessert are bad ass.


10 Mom October 9, 2011 at 8:12 am

Lilly is so pleased to be called “bad ass.” She’s walking around with extra attitude today!


11 Hillary October 8, 2011 at 1:13 pm

Looks like the cat isn’t such a huge fan of the camera ; )


12 Michelle (Peachy Palate) October 8, 2011 at 1:14 pm

I keep hearing so much about pumpkin beer and have never tried it. Sounds so good. I hope I manage to track some down over here!


13 Mom October 8, 2011 at 1:15 pm

The kitty is very old (17), but she perked up when Kath and Matt got here! (She might not look perked up in the picture, but she did perk up a bit!)


14 Julie H. of Spinach and Sprinkles October 8, 2011 at 1:17 pm

Aw! That cat steals my heart! I want to pet it!!! ….Pumpkin beer AND a pumpkin roll- now that’s what I’m talking about! :)


15 Ali @ Peaches and Football October 8, 2011 at 1:22 pm

Mmmmm pumpkin roll! One of my favorite desserts growing up was plain old pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting. Mom would make them each Fall and it’s probably one of the reasons that Fall is my favorite season. Anything pumpkin is good!


16 Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) October 8, 2011 at 1:23 pm

I LOVE meals like this! We do this type of meal every Friday with the boys as a little tradition now. Nothing better than family style build your owns! The pumpkin oh looks amazing! No wonder people are going nuts over it at the bakery!


17 Lauren @ What Lauren Likes October 8, 2011 at 1:33 pm

Yum! What a great lunch! That fruit salad looks great :)


18 Amanda October 8, 2011 at 1:37 pm

That sandwich looks soooooo awesome! Makes me crave avocado… YUM! And the dessert looks scrumptious! :)


19 Lynda @ healthy Hoboken girl October 8, 2011 at 1:46 pm

20 Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife October 8, 2011 at 1:52 pm

21 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga October 8, 2011 at 2:10 pm

Glad you guys make it back home…and that pumpkin roll action looks beyond amazing. I’d love to snag that right off the screen! :)


22 Angel7 October 8, 2011 at 2:15 pm

That fruit salad looks really good!

There was a nice array of veggies and fruits!


23 Christine @ Oatmeal in my Bowl October 8, 2011 at 2:30 pm

I am so jealous of the pumpkin beer! Sounds yummy and I love the bottles.


24 sarah@spinach and spice October 8, 2011 at 2:31 pm

Fresh fruit and veg and pumpkin roll! Great day 😀

29 Tamra October 8, 2011 at 4:13 pm

Oh what a sweet kitty! I hope my Maggie is around that long.
Pumpkin Oh My!

30 Mom October 8, 2011 at 7:42 pm

Lillian says hi to Maggie. She doesn’t really care for other cats, but Internet kitty friends are okay.


31 B n B October 8, 2011 at 4:22 pm

Is the dessert from the bakery? Looks great.

That cat looks so adorable.


32 Brittany @ Pretty Fit, Pretty Healthy, Pretty Happy October 8, 2011 at 5:20 pm

I’m going to turn orange by the end of fall from all the pumpkin I’ve been eating. And I’ve seen that pumpkin roll-up cake everywhere! I need to try to make some ASAP. While drinking pumpkin beer… of course. :)


33 Kim @ Eat, Live, and Blog October 8, 2011 at 6:19 pm

The pumpkin roll look amazing!! :)


34 emma October 8, 2011 at 6:49 pm

35 Becky October 8, 2011 at 7:04 pm

Welcome back to the triangle. We had a beautiful day here and should have a repeat tomorrow. Enjoy!


36 Sarah @ Sarah's Modern Bites October 8, 2011 at 7:05 pm

You just reminded me how much I love radishes!!! I haven’t bought then in ages…. why do we sometimes forget about foods we really like? hahha They are so spicy and crisp! yumyum

And holy moly that pumpkin roll looks AWESOME. Good dessert pick! 😉


37 Katelyn@ Foodie Goes to School October 8, 2011 at 7:28 pm

Does GH make the pumpkin oh?! Or did you make it?! AM I MISSING SOMEHTHING?! I WANT ONE!


38 J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) October 8, 2011 at 7:47 pm

Aah, that sandwich looks so good, but as always, needs a top! :)

Love Lillis Billis. She is SO cute.


39 Diana @ frontyardfoodie October 8, 2011 at 9:41 pm

I am not ashamed to say I could literally eat that entire fruit salad bowl. Not joking. And I want to.


40 Racheld October 8, 2011 at 10:22 pm

What did you and Matt think of the Harvest Time? I liked it when I had it on tap but not at all when I got the bottles.


41 Kath October 9, 2011 at 8:23 am

Thought it was good!! Nice spice :)


42 Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin October 9, 2011 at 7:03 am

That pumpkin roll looks so good! Kudos to whoever rolled it – I made jelly rolls in my Food Science lab last year and they were tough to roll!


43 JenATX October 9, 2011 at 9:57 am

i’m curious, do you just pick up the radishes and eat them? i’ve never tried that.. looks interesting!


44 KathEats October 9, 2011 at 6:44 pm

with a little sea salt, yes. They aren’t really very good!


45 Amanda@RunningOnCoffee October 9, 2011 at 8:32 pm

i’ve bought radishes before… my husband really likes them, they are a little too bitter/spicy for me. Maybe I haven’t bought them at the right ripe-ness or something?


46 Anna October 9, 2011 at 12:17 pm

Awww the kitty is so cute with her tucked-in paws!! :)

Mmm bread with seeds- those pumpkin seeds look so crunchy and delicious.


47 Meghan @ Day-to-Day Crazy October 9, 2011 at 1:06 pm

Avocado on sandwiches, so yummy! Wait, who am I kidding… avocado on almost anything is delicious. :)


48 Danielle October 9, 2011 at 10:48 pm

I Love that you got a hold of my local brew from Blue Point, Long Island! :) And a pumpkin one at that!! If you wanna try another really great pumpkin beer, Shipyard’s Pumpkinhead is a personal favorite of mine this season. I think you’ll really enjoy it!


49 Koko @ October 10, 2011 at 1:01 am

That cat is AMAZING I am dying, it’s like he has little lipstick on!!


50 Heather October 10, 2011 at 2:59 am

Ugh! I get irrationally annoyed when people make mean comments about Lillian!
