The Forgotten Breasts

December 17, 2011

I had a lovely Saturday morning, including lots of hiking around downtown and a power yoga class.

First to the Farmer’s Market, where I got some grass-fed beef and a present for Matt!


And next to the Organic Butcher for more presents and herby local chicken breasts for dinner this week.

It wasn’t until I was back home unpacking things I realized my chicken was nowhere to be found. I feared the worst – that it was on the ground somewhere along the mile walk from the store to my house, but when I called, they said I had left it on the scale.

I trekked back over after yoga and tried to get a laugh out of the folks there with:

“I think I left my breasts here?!”

Laugh they did :mrgreen:

By the time I’d walked to the butcher, the market and back and then to yoga and to the butcher and back again, I think I covered 4-5 miles! Plus an hour of vinyasa yoga (Pilar’s last class – sniff!). I was starved.


Big ole salad of mixed greens, carrots, honey, salt and bleu cheese


Toast with Barney Butter melted on top


And Oikos with Nature’s Path granola.


A filling feast for sure.

I’m so sorry it’s Pilar’s last class! Your feast looks delish, though. Happy Saturday!

Years ago,I was told, Southerners would NEVER say “breast” when referring to chicken, only “white meat.” And the thigh was called the “second joint.”


3 Roxanne December 17, 2011 at 3:43 pm

for us, the thigh is dark meat.


4 Mom December 17, 2011 at 3:45 pm

Yes the breast was called “white meat” not the “breast” and the thigh, which I agree is dark meat, was called the “second joint.”

Great sense of humor Kath :)

Nothing like a boob joke!


7 Christine @ Oatmeal in my Bowl December 17, 2011 at 3:13 pm

I wish I had an organic butcher in my area. That would be awesome. And yeah for yoga. Perfect for a Saturday morning!


8 Hannah @ eat, drink, and save money December 17, 2011 at 6:40 pm

I want to find an organic butcher too! How awesome!


9 Ashley @ Coffee, Cake and Cardio December 17, 2011 at 3:21 pm

Fun morning!


10 Jennifer December 17, 2011 at 3:30 pm

haha……that is hilarious!!! I would have loved to see their faces when you said that. :)


11 Rebecca @ Naturally Healthy and Gorgeous December 17, 2011 at 3:48 pm

My husband always buys grass-fed beef, it’s definitely healthier than regular feed animals.


12 Susan H. @ The Food Allergy Chronicles December 17, 2011 at 3:57 pm

Lunch looks great…I would opt for more Barney Butter…I’m a…I’ll have a little toast with my peanut butter kind of gal!


13 Simply Life December 17, 2011 at 3:58 pm

you are too funny- glad they had a sense of humor along with you :)


14 Kaila @healthyhelperblog! December 17, 2011 at 4:35 pm

Haha! You had me laughing just from the title!


15 Katie @ Peace Love & Oats December 17, 2011 at 4:35 pm

hahahaha I love that you said that! I’m sure that made their workday much more entertaining.


16 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga December 17, 2011 at 4:40 pm

Glad the breasts were recovered.

And sniff on a last yoga class for Pilar…always sad to say goodbye to yoga folks but in yoga, it seems that there is so much transient’s like artists (or even bloggers)..they come. And they go. But it’s still bittersweet.

A present for Matt…yay! Hope he likes it!

hahah that’s soooo funny! I would have giggled too at your joke, or said, “uhh they’re back there in aisle 9”. 😛


18 Gina @ Running to the Kitchen December 17, 2011 at 4:54 pm

Haha, good one :)


19 Angel7 December 17, 2011 at 4:58 pm

People remember customers who are personable, funny and nice :) Great way to bring a smile to their faces during the busyness of the holiday, Kath!

21 Jen December 17, 2011 at 5:44 pm

I’m glad you found your breasts, Kath!


22 Maddie December 17, 2011 at 6:40 pm

Your lunch looks so delicious! Mmmmm Barney Butter. Where did you get that little blue spoon from? It seems like everyone has them!


23 KathEats December 17, 2011 at 10:13 pm

Crate & Barrel!


24 RunEatRepeat December 17, 2011 at 6:41 pm

Team Gale or Team Peeta?


25 KathEats December 17, 2011 at 10:13 pm

Hmm…as of now, Gale, but I haven’t cracked open book 2 yet!


26 Faith December 17, 2011 at 7:00 pm

What do you mean Pilar’s last class?! Is she moving?! I better start picking up the Vinyasa slack around there…I was already contemplating adding a Saturday morning class for January.


27 KathEats December 17, 2011 at 10:14 pm

She’s moving back to Birmingham!!!! Sadness.


28 Karen December 17, 2011 at 7:19 pm

Your titiliating title had me anxiously awaiting the punch line…you’re adorable, Kath!

Way to think positively about the extra trip!
I always try to think “extra exercise” when things like that happen :)
I love the plate and bowl! It is so cute!


31 J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) December 17, 2011 at 9:19 pm

I’m glad you found your breasts! That was a close one. :)


32 Jamie @ Don't Forget the Cinnamon December 17, 2011 at 9:36 pm

I left some chicken breasts in a bag at the grocery store once–it’s so frustrating to have to go back!
But, we are better off than my mom who once left her chicken in her car…in the summer. Let’s just say her car did not have the most pleasant odor after that incident…


33 lindsay December 17, 2011 at 11:25 pm

what a good looking lunch~ i scarfed down an egg sandwich today after my wkout, i love bfast any time of day!! Also lovely joke! I thought it was going to be about forgotten to eat chicken…but the story was a great surprise!


34 Khushboo December 17, 2011 at 11:35 pm

Hahah way to add light to their day :)


35 Jess December 18, 2011 at 12:43 am

That is something I would say! I love to get a laugh out of people!


36 ciely December 18, 2011 at 6:45 am

Shopping for presents at the butchers? Will you be gift wrapping your breasts?


37 KathEats December 18, 2011 at 6:58 am



38 Fran@ Broken Cookies Don't Count December 18, 2011 at 6:49 am

I love the little blue bowl and spoon…so cute!


39 Rosie December 18, 2011 at 7:39 am

And I thought I was the only one who pricey items at the farmers market after I’ve paid. In my case, it was from our fishmonger…UGH!


40 Melody (Redhead in the Kitchen) December 19, 2011 at 3:36 pm

Yum! I have been on a total blue cheese kick lately. I made a quart sized batch of blue cheese dressing this weekend! I kept it a little cleaner with 1/2 fat free greek yogurt and 1/2 mayo, but still- whoa!
