She’s My Little Whiskey Girl

October 6, 2011

I really really hope tomorrow is as pretty as today! I walked from home to Great Harvest. It was Real Simple.


Once there, things got complicated. Matt and I are working on holiday planning and ordering lots of packaging and add-ons to sell – it’s quite overwhelming since we’ve never been through a holiday season before. But with the way the Pumpkin Ohs are selling, I’d say it’s going to be good : )


Snack!! An apple from home and…a fresh batch of Cluster! I didn’t bring a bag home…I’m taking a week off! But I already miss it.


We worked late and had plans to go out to dinner. But by 7pm, we were tired, and the thought of eggs and toast on the couch was more appealing than going to a restaurant.


A complete dinner in 10 minutes!


Smoked Scrambled Eggs, Cville Crunch Toast and a pan of brussels sprouts and apples topped with goat cheese.


How’s that for fast food!?


After dinner we watched episode 2 of Prohibition. I think it’s so hilarious that we’re watching this with homebrew in the next room over!


I also realized that the bottle of bourbon we drank at Pop’s funeral was from 1918 – which means it survived the decade without being smashed! The film says that many of the fancy clubs bought year’s worth of liquor in the year prior to the amendment’s enactment, so maybe the Baltimore Country Club hoarded this one under its protection?

The new couch is fun!! Perfect space for two. I was initially disappointed with the firmness of it – the floor model we tested was much more sunken in the back – but hopefully this one will sink in time.

[Note also the stock 90s pillow cover will not be staying!]


A little mid-movie entertainment! Our brand new Oatmeal Raisin cookie. It was delicious, but not my favorite. I liked the raisins, but I missed the chocolate chips!


Night friends!

3 Lynda @ Healthy Hoboken Girl October 6, 2011 at 8:14 pm

The couch looks great, very cozy!! We’re watching Prohibition too, great documentary. I’m longing for a cookie…must make some soon!!


4 Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) October 6, 2011 at 8:17 pm

I had eggs tonight too! It was the perfect quick easy dinner after work! Looks like you two have a nice evening planned. Enjoy it!


5 Ashley @ Coffee Cake and Cardio October 6, 2011 at 8:18 pm

I really like y’alls new couch. What furniture store did y’all get it at again?

Grand Home Furnishings


7 lynn @ the actor's diet October 6, 2011 at 8:19 pm

love scrambled eggs. breakfast, dinner, snack…anytime…


8 Katie @ Peace Love and Oats October 6, 2011 at 8:20 pm

that is seriously my kind of fast food! And I can’t even imagine trying to figure out holiday ordering when you don’t have a year’s experience under your belt, what a guessing game! I’m sure it will be crazy busy!!! Ahhh now I’m all excited for the holidays!


9 Lauren October 6, 2011 at 8:23 pm

Eggs are the perfect comfort food. And I LOVED the weather today! Perfect day for my birthday 😀 Have a great night!


10 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga October 6, 2011 at 8:27 pm

dinners on the couch after a long day are the way to go, for sure!

brussels sprouts and apples roasted up sounds great, too.

Good luck w/ holiday ordering. I bet it’s sooo hard to determine what to order and in what quantity since you have no basis for comparison. Good luck!


11 Simply Life October 6, 2011 at 8:27 pm

sounds like a productive day – glad you could relax at the end of it!


12 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More October 6, 2011 at 8:30 pm

Oatmeal raisin cookies are SO delicious but I do think Oatmeal chocolate chip are even better!!


13 A Teenage Gourmet (Sami) October 6, 2011 at 8:32 pm

Must replenish baked goods!


14 Liz @ Tip Top Shape October 6, 2011 at 8:32 pm

I’ll take that fast food any day!


15 Erika - The Teenage Taste October 6, 2011 at 8:39 pm

That couch looks commmmmmfffffffyyyyyy! Hope you have a relaxing night, Kath! :-)


16 Lisa @ Fit in the Midwest October 6, 2011 at 8:39 pm

We watched Prohibition the other night and my husband said “now I want some wine.” Isn’t it a great documentary?


17 Kori October 6, 2011 at 8:40 pm

I wish Kaci and I could come visit you and Matt at the bakery each season so that we could taste and enjoy the different seasonal items!!! 😉 Yes, your fast dinner looks scrumptious!


18 Cait @ beyond bananas October 6, 2011 at 8:43 pm

I am really excited to see how amazing GH does during it’s first holiday season!!


19 Bethany I. October 6, 2011 at 8:50 pm

Mmm I love eggs, especially scrambled! This is totally my go to meal when I come home from classes for lunch and I am starving because I was running late and forgot my morning snack. Your scrambled eggs look delicious!

Did you put smoked paprika on top of them? I’ve always just done basil, oregano, and rosemary, but I’ll have to try that :)


20 Emily @ the doodlebug October 6, 2011 at 9:01 pm

I’ll take that cookie if you don’t want it!

Did you watch the Prohibition about Templeton Rye? My college roommate was from Templeton, Iowa and we recognized a lot of things in the showing of it (such as the church my friend got married at!).


21 Kristy October 6, 2011 at 9:03 pm

Hi Kath-I’ve been following your blog for sometime but never commented. I’m wondering if you can recommend a yummy restaurant in the downtown mall or near by in cville. I’m headed there tomorrow with some family to go apple picking and we want to head out to lunch afterwards. I also plan to stop by Great Harvest for some bread. Thanks!


22 KathEats October 7, 2011 at 8:34 am

Have you checked out the Cville page!?

I love Zocalo, Mono Loco, Eppie’s, Positively 4th


23 Kristy October 7, 2011 at 4:35 pm

Thanks for the response. We went to Eppies and it was delicious. Also stopped by great harvest for a delicious chocolate chip walnut cookie and a loaf of bread. Now we are headed home from a beautiful day in cville and 30 lbs of apples.


24 KathEats October 7, 2011 at 4:39 pm

So glad!


25 Cait's Plate October 6, 2011 at 9:11 pm

Roasted brussel sprouts were on the menu for me tonight but a (failed) manicure caused that not to happen! I need to have these tomorrow!

Also that oatmeal raisin cookie looks amazing. And I love your relaxation station – Matt looks so happy and comfy! :)

PS – that picture that includes the Cville Cluster Granola literally made me swoon. I just ran out of my very last bit of Groovy Granola and I want to cry!!


26 Hilary October 6, 2011 at 9:24 pm

Looks like a random (but good) supper…sometimes that’s the best kind!


27 Deva @ Deva by Definition October 6, 2011 at 9:24 pm

I like the new couch! In my experience, they do get more squashy once used a lot. Ours did :-)


28 kaila @ healthyhelper October 6, 2011 at 9:33 pm

Eggs and toast sounds perfect! Thats what I’ll be having for a quick friday night dinner for sure!


29 Mindy Lord October 6, 2011 at 9:35 pm

That dinner sounds and looks delicious! It’s the little things that make the best of things.


30 J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) October 6, 2011 at 9:37 pm

That looks like a fab fast din din! Saved time and money. :)

Your finished basement looks like so much fun. Like a getaway cave.


31 Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife October 6, 2011 at 9:43 pm

A cookie is not a true cookie unless it has chocolate chips in it :)

Your couch looks nice! Enjoy your night!


32 Kaitlyn @ Almond Oats. October 6, 2011 at 9:53 pm

you make even the simplest meals look divine!


33 Angel7 October 6, 2011 at 9:58 pm

I am sure that during the holiday season at Great Harvest sales will be booming :) I wonder what the most purchased item will be.


34 kathleen @ the daily crumb October 6, 2011 at 9:59 pm

awww. love the movie love seat :) what a great at home dinner. aren’t those simple, cozy nights in just the best?!


35 Stephanie October 6, 2011 at 10:08 pm

What are pumpkin ohs? Sounds yummy….


36 KathEats October 7, 2011 at 8:34 am
37 Julia H. @ The Petite Spiel October 6, 2011 at 10:28 pm

I get such a kick out of every time you mention reading a magazine while walking outside. I’ve done that on the treadmill, but I just can’t picture myself reading something while actually moving along–I think I’d walk into something/someone or trip!

Also, that footrest looks super comfy..and gigantic.


38 Ella, RD October 6, 2011 at 11:10 pm

Is that paprika on your eggs?! what a good idea! it’s not just for hummus garnish anymore


39 Christine @ Oatmeal in my Bowl October 6, 2011 at 11:39 pm

Wonder how many others whipped up a delicious 10 minute meal? If you don’t mind me sharing an Instagram photo of my 10 min meal earlier this eve’. It was Swiss Chard & Chickpea Curry. The swiss chard was from my CSA. Never tried it before. Yum. This whole thing was good I hate the whole pot ( 1 can chickpeas). And super simple to make. LOL.

Yeah for 10 minute meals!

41 Khushboo October 7, 2011 at 12:38 am

I kinda wanna dive into that couch Matt is sitting on- looks SO comfortable!


42 Michelle (Peachy Palate) October 7, 2011 at 12:41 am

I want your sofa! It looks so comfy!!!!


43 Health Bee October 7, 2011 at 12:47 am

The smoked scramble egg looks delicious!


44 Liz October 7, 2011 at 1:17 am

The new couch looks beautiful & comfortable – I actually like my chairs/couches/mattresses pretty firm, so I’d be all over that 😉 I’m with ya on the oatmeal cookies – I do not really like raisins in them. Actually, I don’t really care for raisins baked in anything!


45 Mahealani @ Beauty, Brains, and Balance October 7, 2011 at 2:06 am

Mmm, that looks like a great dinner! I love that couch and especially the TV stand, the mirrors totally make it for me.


46 Lauren October 7, 2011 at 6:02 am

I was trying to think of a quick but satisfying dinner for tonight and it just might be what you had. Eggs are the perfect go-to meal.


47 Lauren @ What Lauren Likes October 7, 2011 at 6:03 am

Love eggies for a fast dinner! YUm 😀


48 Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning October 7, 2011 at 6:52 am

Oooh smoked paprika on eggs! Sounds delicious!
The love seat looks so comfy and Matt looks like he’s feeling good!


49 Hope @ With A Side Of Hope October 7, 2011 at 7:42 am

Dinner looks delicious! :) Your sofa looks so comfy! I’m jealous! I want a sofa like that!


50 Sarah@The Flying ONION October 7, 2011 at 7:44 am

That is my very favorite kind of fast food. 😉

And I’m pretty sure the perfect oatmeal raisin cookie involves coconut and chocolate chips. And maybe some walnuts. Mmm….


51 Molly @ RDexposed October 7, 2011 at 7:50 am

Liquor laws still seem kind of crazy. I tried New Belgium’s Kick last night. Tried it out yet? So interesting!


52 KathEats October 7, 2011 at 8:35 am

Not yet!


53 Jennifer October 7, 2011 at 8:15 am

Love the couch! It looks really roomy and comfy.

Do you guys bake the cookies, too? I would have such a hard time keeping my hands away from fresh baked cookies. :)

Hope you have a great Friday!


54 KathEats October 7, 2011 at 8:35 am

OH yeah – everything is made from scratch!


55 Leslie October 7, 2011 at 8:28 am

My absolute favorite cookie is oatmal/raisin/chocolate chip. I used to buy one every Friday at the student store in college and then go read my People magazine! I don’t have them anymore because I am GF/DF. I suppose I could try to make some but they just might not measure up to the original. Do you guys make them at your store?


56 KathEats October 7, 2011 at 8:35 am

Yup! All made from scratch


57 KIM October 7, 2011 at 8:48 am

Enjoy all of your posts- I ordered the C”ville Cluster from you on Open Sky- I am ADDICTED – Do you plan on offering it again soon ?? Unfortunately , I do not live near a GH Bread Co. ~~


58 KathEats October 7, 2011 at 10:58 am

Not anytime in the near future, unfortunately, but definitely in the later future!


59 Becca October 7, 2011 at 9:50 am

What was on your toast? Un-melted butter bits and jam? Looks delish whatever was on it.

Oatmeal raisin is my favorite kind of cookie. However, it is such a treat when the raisins have been replaced with chocolate chips… it tastes so much richer!


60 KathEats October 7, 2011 at 10:58 am

Yup!! Butter and jam


61 Shana October 7, 2011 at 6:58 pm

Is it bad that I LIKE the ’90s stock pillow?!?!


62 Zoe Schaeffer October 11, 2011 at 4:21 pm

Hey Kath!
I work for a digital publisher that puts out a bunch of magazines, two I think you might really enjoy: Real Eats and Uncorked. They are weekly or bi-weekly publications with lovely photos and content, and they are for iPad and computer so the subscription is uber cheap.
Check them out!
