My taste in music is very eclectic. And there are only a few styles I do not like. All I need is a little positive memory association to love a particular song, which often opens up a whole genre.
Although I’ve always had a sense of the coolest songs, I’ve never been much of a pop listener. I couldn’t tell you the names of the songs or the artists. I’d only recognize something playing in Abercrombie.
But sometime between Y2 yoga and Gossip Girl, I have turned into a pop girl! When I get in my car to drive, I find the pop stations and dance out. I seem to know EVERY song that comes on. And while I still can’t tell you the song names or artists, I feel like I’m a little cooler these days : )
I was in charge of the first 1.5 hours from Cville to Warrenton to pay Pablo an after-hours visit. If you haven’t been to Warrenton, you should just to meet Pablo. He’s really one of the nicest guys in the world.
Matt and I taste tested a few breads
And I left with a toffee bar for dessert!
We decided to leave at 5PM tonight to avoid driving through Washington at rush hour, so I packed up dinner to eat in the car.
I made a salad with a base of wheatberries (which I simmered this morning) and wild canned salmon, plus veggies, capers, and pecans.
Super Salmon Salad
- 1/2 cup dry wheatberries simmered until tender
- 1 can wild Alaskan salmon
- 1 bell pepper diced
- 2 tbsp capers
- 2 cups baby spinach chopped
- 2 tbsp chopped pecans
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1 tsp dijon mustard
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1 tsp salt
- Toss in dressing.
- Mix all together!
- Enjoy immediately or chill until ready.
We also snacked on grapes and some veggie sticks during our drive.
We’re settled in Columbia, Maryland to spend a few days with owners Jane and Chris learning some of the ropes of the bizness. I feel like we’re in Montana training all over again! Can’t wait to taste some Irish Soda Bread!
Not sure of my blogability, but I’ll see you soon!
Guess where we’re staying!?!!?
