Busy day My presentation went well though! My GI tract was all nervous and I ended up being starving all afternoon – with no time to eat because I had a long list of patients to see! I don’t think my lunch was big enough. I finally devoured my emergency bag of almonds and apricots upon leaving at 4:30. I had stomach pains I was so
And once home, I turned around and we were off to sign our closing docs. |Thisclose| to having the house sold!! The keys are no longer in our possession –
We headed back to Karen’s, changed clothes, and I had snack #2. Still starving! A juicy, weighty peach covered in Nuttzo. Karen has rekindled my love for Nuttzo!! So crunchy, it was the perfect topping 🙂
Matt and I hopped on our bikes and were headed up to Caitlin‘s new house!! Can we believe with her move and my move we’re now only 2.7 miles apart!?!? We biked there in about 18 minutes. So fun – and a great way to squeeze in a little workout!
Guess who else is house hunting in Charlotte – The HANGRYs!!!!
I played with Caitlin‘s cute doggins (so strange to meet them in person!)
And played with her cute hubs
And we walked to dinner just a block away at a fancy French-Italian restaurant called Terra.
The Gentlemen –
I settled on a glass of syrah to drink. Fun times on a Tuesday!
An amuse – a goat cheese + pistachio-encrusted grape with saffron honey!!!! Amazing!!
Gobbled down a few slices of bread..
Dipped in the finest..
I ordered a salad to start – endive with a stinky cheese (in a good way!) and the best candied pecans (walnuts?!). This was only half though, because they split it between Matt and me, but really he had ordered something else, so I ate his half too!
The main event was this INCREDIBLE (!!) fish – something along the lines of red snapper, methinks, with a bunch of flavors over a goat cheese stuffed swiss chard leaf.
Matt and I shared!!
Wish I’d taken more photos of the Hangrys and HTPs but since we biked there, I was cameraless and borrowed Caitlin‘s nice equipment for the project 🙂
We stayed out too late and I’m sure I’ll be zonked for breakfast. But it was worth the fun! For the 2.7 mile ride home, we navigated the back roads of some gorgeous McMansions in Charlotte and avoided the rubbled sidewalk. It was like biking after dark as a kid again and was so much fun. Thank goodness for bike lights (and don’t worry – we practiced good bike safety!)
