Walkin’ In The Rain

September 2, 2012

Before the rains swept in, Matt and I went for a nice walk down to the bakery and back (lots of hills!) and then we said goodbye to the failing tomato plants. They sure served us well! Peas, beans + carrots coming in next! Greens have been planted in the middle box. Okra is still climbing!

After showers and freshening, we got sweaty again walking back downtown for a Virginia Bloggers meet up! Small group today : )  Sarah, me, Liz  and Jessica (and Liz’s friend who was taking more photos!)

We met at Café Cubano (which has a huge brunch crowd that I didn’t know about!) I decided on the Bueno Burrito for lunch – shrimp, eggs, feta cheese and avocado.

It was delicious!!!

As was the fruit on the side. Love it when bananas and berries come in a fruit salad and it’s not just all cantaloupe, honeydew and grapes!

For an appetizer and dessert, Sarah brought two of her new seasonal nutty butters to try: Eggnog and Gingerbread. Since holiday spices are my favorite flavors of the year, I was a HUGE fan of both!

When we emerged from lunch, we realized it was pouring rain Sad smile Luckily I’d packed my tiny umbrella, but I still ended up with squishy-squash feet and wet shoulders. Matt just got all wet! And of course now it has stopped raining.

Hoping to cozy up with a book! Too bad we don’t have a fireplace…

Eggnog and Gingerbread flavored PB – oh I am so curious! I bet the gingerbread has a cookie butter/speculoos vibe? then again maybe not and eggnog – mmmm, yes!

The gingerbread flavor would be perfect for all things fall and winter.

The combo of shrimp, eggs, feta cheese and avocado actually sounds amazing!

Oooh those nut butters sound delish! Good burrito choice, too. I dig the combo and the fruit on the side.

That burrito looks fantastic! I agree with you about the fruit salads on the side … I always like when they include something other than the usual melons.

Hope that baby comes real soon!

Oh my goodness, eggnog nut butter? Heaven.

I think it is a rule of nature that if I try to wait out a rain storm, it will rain all day, but when I decide to just suck it up and walk home through it, it will stop raining as soon as I arrive home. So frustrating!

When I stayed with Brittany last month, she let me try one of Sarah’s Chia Spiced Nut Butters and it blew me away! Girl knows how to make some pretty outstanding spreads. :)

Thanks for the garden pictures. I’m a pretty new reader, and I’ve been wondering where you grow your veggies. Is this your yard or a community garden?

14 KathEats September 2, 2012 at 4:51 pm

Our yard! Matt is the gardener

Don’t forget to mulch your old plants, and next year, you will probably have tomato plants coming up in your mulch pile!!

So jealous of your incredible garden! I guess it’s the humidity and heat because even in FL I can’t grow that much stuff… Maybe herbs, but all those veggies? Don’t think so! And those nut butters sound sooo delicious right now! We’re a long way away from fall-like weather, but I’m craving the flavors somethin’ fierce!

Yes, I agree – you definitely look like you have dropped!! Baby is getting ready to meet you!

A photo from earlier today for BERF – still think so from the side? I would be encouraged if so! He sure was hurting me down there today with his bones! http://www.katheats.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/Foodblog-4917.jpg

What is the white thing in the right side of the first photo? I can’t tell if it’s inside or outside.

Where can I buy Sarah’s nut butter? I really want some of the eggnog flavor!

Reply

25 KathEats September 2, 2012 at 5:26 pm

I think you can email her through her website?

Ooooh I am jealous of your sweet little garden! Someday soon I hope to have my own home with a YARD so I can grow my own food. In the meantime, I grow several herbs in pots (basil, thyme, chocolate mint, rosemary, dill, chives, and cilantro) and plan to purchase some top-hat blueberry bushes next spring to grow in pots as well. I looooooooove blueberries!

I am also now a fan of Sarah’s nut butters…..can wait to order some! Thanks for sharing! :)

That burrito sounds amazing!! I don’t buy feta for myself often, so it is always extra yummy when I do get to eat it!

And I cannot imagine what eggnog nutty butter would taste like but I love eggnog so it must be good :)

The reason I like this one restaurant around here for breakfast is because their fruit cup is banana, mango and strawberry. Melon can be so hit or miss.

That’s great that you participate in regular blog meetups! I need to look into that sort of thing in South Florida.

How long past your due date will your doctor let you go before he induces you?

31 KathEats September 2, 2012 at 7:41 pm

I’m hoping 42 weeks or very close to it, but I’m not sure. A friend told me they let her friend go to 42 at my practice. I will ask on Tuesday.

I love ANYTHING Fall, and seriously how have I not thought to make seasonal nut butters!?
