I’m such a homebody with a job at home that when I’m gone all day long it’s weird to get reacquainted to my desk! Hi, desk!
We worked on things at the bakery – including our new line of Wild Squirrel nut butters on the shelves!
Mom & Pop sent me on my way for my walk home while they closed up shop. Those darlings.
Somehow, despite not passing me on my walk, Zeb + Matt beat me there via bike + auto! They were already on the porch with this:
That would be the most photogenic beer ever!
Only a few more months till I can partake again, so Baby KERF and I had trail mix and sparkling water instead.
We walked downtown for dinner, and after hyping Zeb up over the Spice-a-ritas at Mono Loco, he decided he had to try one.
Again I got a virgin one with limeade, pickled jalapenos and something spicy. Best virgin cocktail ever!
We took Zeb to Zocalo for dinner, one of our very favorite restaurants!! [Because of THE PEPPER!!!]
We started with bread. Duh. Breadheads.
And shared the cheesy fritters with a spicy plum sauce. Such wonderful foreshadowing to The Pepper!
Plus some mussels
And then I dove in head first!!!! This is my favorite entrée in Cville!
A Chile Relleno stuffed with corn + black beans + cheese, red-tortilla encrusted, served over smoked tomato grits with a sweet buttermilk-cilantro sauce.
Soooooooooooooooooo gooooooddd!!! But since we had filled up on apps and drinks, I could barely eat half!! Matt helped a lot, but I was sad I did not have more room.
He had the salmon over goat cheese Israeli couscous [Elizabeth, it was incredible! I think herbs are involved too. Cilantro?]
Not an inch left inside for dessert.
Wish I had more time to digest before bed, but I might just have to sleep sitting up!
