Hi I am Kath. I like oatmeal. Here are some pictures of my food.
(The husband wrote that because I asked him to put in my photos for me!!!)
We’re in a big rush this morning to get to a brunch – I feel back for neglecting my blog duties!!!
Yesterday was a lot of fun, but the rain definitely put a damper on the evening. I was able to get in a snack and all of my Organic homework in the afternoon. Larbs took a 2 hour nap and felt better (and she feels much better this morning too, thank goodness). When she woke up we both had bowls of cereal with granola plank, hemp milk and PB. She loved hemp milk and said “there’s something amazing in this bowl of cereal and I don’t know what it is!?”
We made our way uptown in the rain via lightrail. Then walked 6-7 blocks to Pie Town, a new restaurant with a pizza glow. I LOVED the atmosphere and the menu was good. The food was all great tasting, but we had some controversy with our pizza at the end of the night…
I ordered this delicious beer:
We started with a little appetizer called Speidini with eggplant wrapped around feta and almonds. YUM!! We eat got a log.
The husband ordered THE MOST AMAZING “Focaccina” bread loaf. It was extremely doughy and probably the most delicious bread I’ve ever had in my life.
Larbs and I split a calamari salad, which was just OK (kind of plain). There’s my focaccia piece on the side. I had a second one too!
As usual, I had a few sips of the husband’s delicious beer –
Our pizza took forever to come out. We had forgotten to ask for whole wheat crust and I said “oh darn!” right when the waiter was there. He said he would go re-do the order, but we said 3-4 times “Don’t worry about it – we’re hungry.” But he went to re-do the order and it took another 20 minutes or so to come out. Once out, the crust was BURNED!! Not doughy at all 🙁 When he asked if everything was up to par, we let him know about the crust (very nicely!) and he said “Whole wheat crust just burns” like that’s how it was supposed to be 🙁
Oh, and the pizza was White Clam à la Frank Pepe’s Napoletana: Garlic & Herbed Clams, Cheese Blend, & Fresh Italian Parsley. It was pretty good, but I wasn’t wild about the clams (it wasn’t my top choice).
We walked more blocks in the rain to Larbs’ friends’ apartment and hung out there for a while. I had a few sips of the husband’s Lienenkugel (sp!) and this small bite of homemade brownie leftover from their dinner party. The crust was toffee graham and amazing!
And few exhausting hours later, we walked back to the lightrail and got home around 12:30. I hit the sack hard!
Window of Opportunity
I knew I had a window of opportunity to workout this morning and woke up kind of tired and not in the mood to exercise. But I knew I’d feel so much better with a workout in me, so I went to the gym – and had a great time!!! 30 minutes on the Stairmaster, 10 on the ET, and pull-ups and dips.
Once home and showered, it’s after 10:30 so I decided to do some risky business – leave the house without breakfast!! We’re headed to a brunch with all kinds of goodies and then to a tailgate with Karen, and then an oyster roast so I didn’t want to fill up on oatmeal. I’m just going to wait a bit and eat there. I’m pretty hungry, but we should be there in 15 minutes!
Sorry to be so wishy-washy this weekend!! Back tonight with the full day’s report 🙂
