Fun afternoon + evening! I’m not sure where it all went though. I got a bit of work done. Oh yeah, and made a retake of a video for Goodbite of that "eat the props" recipe (the original take had some fuzziness 🙁 ) I also iced my foot (I still feel like I need to ice my WHOLE BODY!!) and folded a bunch of laundry.
Speaking of props, props go out to Matt for changing all the bedding, mowing the lawn, cleaning the kitchen twice and doing the taxes!! Such a great husband 🙂
We also watched 30 Rock together and before I knew it it was 5:45 and I was ravenous!!!
Luckily we had pasta salad in the fridge ready for consumption, but I also had a huge craving for hummus (and luckily had a big tupperware of chickpeas in the fridge!!) so I made a batch.
I don’t have the recipe because it was literally a "little of this and that" but the ingredients included:
- Salt + pepper
- Olive oil
- Franks Red Hot
- Cayenne pepper
We broke out some of my Dr. Kracker samples to taste and went a little crazy eating them!
This Cherry Semolina flavor is INCREDIBLE!! The tart cherries went so well with the crackers!!
A lovely dinner for a hungry girl!
A serving of pasta salad (I think we got 4 servings out of the last recipe and this time we got 2!) The pasta salad had whole wheat pasta, olives, zucchini, feta, parsley, capers and almonds.
Hummus + crackers on the side!
This was EXACTLY what I was craving for dinner!
After we ate (and watched Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution episode II and LOVED him!) Matt took us out for a beer tasting.
We went to the Tilted Kilt where the Stone Brewery owner was said to be making an apperance as part of Charlotte’s Craft Brew Week.
Other than the Stone beers, I’m not sure this bar was quite our style. However, we were SOOO glad North Carolina finally passed a no-smoking law this year because we both commented at how horrible it would have been with a cloud of smoke…
We did get to taste all 6 of the Stone beers and chat with a distributor (sadly the owner was not able to make it)
I really wasn’t in the mood to drink. I feel like my body is in super-repair mode and alcohol would just inhibit important processes, but I did have a taste of each beer – I can’t resist trying new tastes!!
I had a giant water after sipping those! (It’s not as much as it looks like 😉 )
I’m so totally pooped. Going to crawl into my warm bed ASAP!
