Hi all! I’m taking a break in Hillsborough to post breakfast and lunch before I drive back to Charlotte. I am in the middle of a great audio book so I’m eager to get on the road!!
I got up early this morning to get in another great run around my grandparents’ neighborhood. I looped all around and will sure miss it when they move. I did about 4.5 miles, I’m guessing.
For breakfast, oats again 🙂 This time with dried peaches, 2% milk, cinnamon sugar, raspberries + strawberries and TJ’s Trail Mix that I brought from home.
My grandparents have always drank instant coffee, so I decided to try some. It was actually pretty good and so quick to make!
And the mothers’ portions!
Our flight was fantastic – on time, efficient, quick. Three cheers for SouthWest! I had peanuts and a few pretzels along with seltzer mid-flight to tide me for our late lunch.
For lunch my parents and I walked to the Gulf Rim, one of Hillsborough’s charming restaurants. The space has changed restaurant concepts many times since we’ve lived here, but I like the flare they have going on. Here’s a shot of the store front
My dad and I split the infamous Flyin’ Mayan, a burrito filled with black beans and sweet potato with all the classic fixin’s and a mole sauce (I got them all on the side). SO GOOD! I’ve got to remember this combo to make at home!
I had 1/3 of it with a little of each side
I also ordered a side salad with a lime-cilantro dressing – yum! Can’t have lunch without some veggies. But it was heavy on the garlic, so I’m fuming now 🙁
From above, with unsweet tea –
I’m hoping my grandfather’s pitch makes it on TV tonight. It’s supposed to happen at 6:50. He’s a huge Orioles fan and his company, Legg Mason, arranged the event in honor of his 90th. He’s been practicing his throw all weekend and had on his jacket at breakfast 🙂
To the highway I go!
