It may be a “work night” but at least it was a fun one! Having social events on work nights adds a magic touch.
After work I made room for a little exercise. 99% stress relief, 1% health benefit. Biking, mastering the stairs, pullups, pushups, dips, biking, done.
Before I left I was still full of sardines, but I had a little bit of dried fruit to combat “afternoon mouth”
Mangosteen! I really have NO way of describing these MegaFruit samples. They’re like nuts and seeds and fruit combined. But good!
When I returned from the gym I was quite hungry and wanted to eat a loaf of bread (my go-to food for hungry eating!) I had a small hunk of Dakota while I packed my lunch (you can expect to see Dakota hunks in it!) and then an apple with a blob of Nuttzo (which I’d been craving all day since I had it at breakfast!) filling in the cracks.
And then we headed up to The Liberty to meet Conor and his family and friends for a celebratory pub grub dinner!
The Liberty is a gastropub and serves awesome gourmet pub grub
Like the most amazing thick chips –
“Bowled” peanuts (=boiled)
And of course, beer!
I ordered the Peak Organic Espresso Amber Ale. It did NOT disappoint!! Totally coffee and red ale mixed. YUM!!!
I had a bite of Devils on Horseback (dates wrapped in bacon!)
And grub….lots and lots of more chips!
I filled up on beer, peanuts and chips, so I just ordered a salad for my meal. It was a stack of tomato with bacon, arugula, corn and edamame with garlic aioli and dressing.
Unfortunately, it was not very good. Filled with unmentionables (onions) that were not on the menu. I ended up sending it back. Had it been my fault I would not have, but onions were no where mentioned, so I felt it was the menu’s fault.
I got a garden salad in its place, which was nice and simple but also had onions in the dressing. I ignored those as best I could and ate up all my greenery.
Matt got a form of kobe beef (grass-fed!) and soba noodles for dinner. He shared bites.
I had sips of his beer and chips for dessert!
Thank you to the Robinson’s for treating us to dinner!
And thanks to Matt for brightening my day. He’s the best 🙂
Matt’s alarm is set for 2:30a and mine is about to be set for 5:26a. Time to get in bed!
