= how many days I’ve been packing for! Workout clothes, dressy clothes, casual, warm. Yikes! I’m taking a duffle bag that I took to England for an entire summer! I feel like I packed pretty concisely, but since we’re not going to be able to do laundry, I had to pack 9 of each of the essentials.
This morning I headed to the gym for a quick workout before meeting Andrew for lunch. I biked there, did some time on the ET and then biked straight back home and took a quick shower. The usual.
Andrew was running late and I sure worked up an appetite! We made our way straight to Great Harvest for some killer sandwiches.
The store was PACKED with customers and bread!!
GH has a sandwich program that is relatively new to Matt’s store and believe it or not I’ve never had one of their sandwiches. The choice was very tough, as they have some fun creations. I was torn between a hummus and avocado, a turkey and avocado with jam and the pimento cheese. I ended up choosing the “Masters” (pimento cheese) because it’s one of my very favorites! Love that you can order a half sandwich, and that’s just what I did.
It comes with toasted pecans and hot pepper jelly!! I asked for it with extra veggies and lite on the cheese. It rocked!!
We had to eat in chairs since the store is on the small side and doesn’t have tables.
Pickles on the side! LOVE deli pickles
And I bought a grapefruit at Trader Joe’s next door to have with my sandwich half, but turns out the sammie was pretty filling and i saved the grapefruit for another time.
We snuck back to check on the bakers.
Check out this anacondaof a Chocolate Babka roll being shaped!
Matt raves about the Virginia rolls hot out of the oven. They are made with potato!
He added some a pound of butter
I had a heavenly bite
How does he maintain his weight here? He literally RUNS from oven to dough mixer to bread board all day long! [And he bikes 12 miles a day to and from work.] He earns every bite!
Andrew and I hit up a small wine tasting at TJs and then made our way to the mall
Presents were purchased!
Then we went to Costco. Shopping is exhausting! My shoes gave me blisters.
Finally, home, to pack. Which was also exhausting. I feel like a mom packing for kids sometimes we have so many toys and foods and chargers and electronics to pack!
Then it was dinnertime. Clean out the fridge!! I got out the leftovers to make a buffet…
Dinner was…not pretty….but it tasted amazing! Kind of like refried beans with cheese, hot sauce, tortilla chips and spinach underneath all melted together!
I was full after this but still kept it on the small side because we had a date to join our friends for Tasty-Yo!!!
I had to go all out with the seasonal flavors because they won’t be around for long!
Peppermint, Gingerbread, Choco Chip Minis
Friends Friends! Merry Christmas!
Not sure I’ve ever seen him this tired. He crashed at 8:30 when we got home. He’s got 11 days off through our vacation, so he’s got tons of time for R&R.
I’m tired too and we’ve got a big day of traveling tomorrow. And festivities! Zzzzzz
