My mom and I were all over Charlotte this morning! First we went to Barnes and Noble, the to Karen’s for a visit at her boutique, then to another boutique shop, then to EarthFare for wheatberries for the husband, then to lunch, then to the mall! Whew!
I’m such a blend of young and old - I came home from the mall with 2 pairs of GAP jeans and an air freshener for my home!
Lunch was superb. We got “tastes” of wine – I had the Lake Sonoma Chardonnay. Mmmmm!
We also tried the Zucchini Chips with Lemon-Infused Yogurt, which we didn’t realize were fried until they came. Well, duh, chips are fried, but we weren’t thinking. They were still yummy though
My portion (plus a little more yogurt)
For lunch I ordered the Beet and Blue Salad – beets with Gorgonzola. I didn’t use any dressing because it was just oil in a cup on the side. I like beets! I didn’t used to but I can definitely say I do now.
Plus a cup of the sweet potato bisque, which came drizzled with oil and tasted too rich for me. I ate about 1/3 of it. I also had a piece of my mom’s portabello sandwich –
From above –
I estimated the lunch to be about 700 kcal.
We were tempted by the pumpkin s’mores, but we decided to hold off!
We are headed out on a walk in my neighborhood for a while, then we’re settling in on the couch to read magazines and watch Food Network and daytime TV!
