After a quick review of restaurant choices, we decided Weaver Street was the best bang for the buck for lunch, so I had had it two days in a row. No complaints here! It was just as good. I could eat salad bar everyday for lunch and never get bored.
Meeting Sarah and Jessica was so fun! We had lots to talk about. They were both so nice – if only they lived in Charlotte!
My salad included:
- Mixed greens + spinach
- Bell peppers
- Corn + Peas
- Homemade croûtons
- Kalamata olives
- A bit of tempeh bulgur salad
- 4 penne pasta tubes
- Soy nuts
- Lemon-Tahini dressing
I also shared a multigrain roll with the husband.
Someone was passing around cookie samples !! This guy was oatmeal-raisin, buttery and the perfect bite-sized dessert 🙂
But then we had real dessert when we saw they were doing a beer tasting . I had about 2-3 oz in tastes of 3 kinds.
We said goodbye to S + J and made our way through Hog Day with the husband’s family, who also live in Hillsborough: Uncle David, Mary Ann and their kids Natalie and Dylan. What an energetic bunch!
The husband was going to get a BBQ sandwich after his lunch salad, but decided he was full and wanted to be nice and hungry for the party tonight. But we did try a BBQ sample from a locally grown free-range farm:
I’m not really one for fair food, but the homemade ice cream was VERY tempting! I would have gotten one, but I decided I should hold out for cake and beer tonight.
I’m going to TRY to work on my Chem Test for the next hour before we begin party prep. The keg is already on the porch!
