Man it had been too long since we’ve biked downtown!! So happy to be free on two wheels again
This afternoon fitness hungry caught up with me!!
A little of this:
Then a massive grocery store trip…
Then a lot of that:
I came home from the grocery store famished at 4:30 and had a big old smoothie for a snack. Smoothies stick to my ribs!
In the mix:
- Half a banana
- 2 tbsp Vega Choc-a-Lot
- ~2/3 cup milk
- 1/3 cup plain yogurt
I wanted my smoothie to hold me over well through dinner tonight because I didn’t want to get stuck starving with only cheese cubes at art galleries!
Remember a month ago when we went on the gallery crawl? Well it’s been a month!! First Friday Round II.
We toured 5 different galleries tonight. The art was just as fantastic, but the food + drink were not nearly as good as last time! Highlights included a few grapes, some pretzels, a few candy corn and a small glass of white wine
We walked up and down the mall trying to decide what to have for a real dinner. I wasn’t hungry, per se, but I wanted some veggies and weight in my stomach.
We ended up biking up to Main Street Market to a restaurant I’ve been wanting to try for ages: Orzo. They have a full restaurant and much to our surprise, tapas at the bar! Perfect fit.
We sat at the bar and ordered what we felt was "lightly" which ended up feeling like a real meal!
A flight of red to share (2 for him, 1 for me)
Complimentary flat bread and hummus!!!!
We ordered two appetizers:
Local Pork Sausage with Grilled Veggies in a Lemon Glaze. Lemon glaze = made the dish. It was incredible!!
Plus the best mussels we have EVER HAD. The thick feta cheese sauce was sooo good, and the grilled bread made an excellent dipper.
And for the nutrients, a side of sautéed spinach, which was amazing but I am now regretting for the garlic taste in my mouth!!
Fabulous meal for not too expensive.
I’m very tired from being up so early – and excited tomorrow is Saturday!
