We had a great time last night hanging out with our old friends! We went to dinner at one of the charming restaurants right on the main street – Tupelo’s . It’s very southern themed with Tupelo honey whipped butter and cornbread along with a menu full of Cajun dishes and seafood.
I started with a glass of Pinot Noir –
And had half of a cornbread triangle with some butter – can’t pass on this one!
For dinner I got the Citrus Salad . It comes with grapefruit, tomatoes, golden raisins, goat cheese and sliced almonds . I got honey dressing on the side and blackened salmon on top. Ate every bite! (Well, left most of the dressing).
The husband ordered homemade fried chicken in a coffee BBQ sauce . The sauce was amazing!! I had two bites of his sweet potatoes and one of the chicken.
Wine Glass #2 . I totally didn’t need it, but I ordered it in the moment. The husband was supposed to help me, but I think I drank most of it.
Hillsborough has this little bar that I may have mentioned before – The Wooden Nickel – it’s quite the hangout for both locals and folks returning home. You know that song "I love This Bar" by Toby Kieth? It’s kinda like thatI saw lots of people I haven’t seen in years and years.
After 2 glasses of wine, I stuck to water (water is always better than being empty handed at a bar).
Butttt…the husband had a number of beers and I took sips of lots of them. So maybe I had half a pint of beer too?
Which led to……
midnight munchies . Larbs and the Matt’s pulled ’em out and I couldn’t resist. I had about 4 cheese and cracker halves
And maybe 1/4 cup of leftover camping trip gorp – basically really good homemade trail mix.
Not feeling my best this morning, but not feeling my worst either, so that’s good! We decided on oatmeal this morning (duh!) before we’re headed to my mom’s gym around 10:00.
Since a workout is looming, we made 1/4 cup portions of oatmeal made with milk and a giant banana and topped with some free granola we got at Weaver Street Market yesterday! And some Smucker’s Natural PB . I really like the Smucker’s brand.
Plus a big cup of H2O.
Since today is Hog Day and my sister’s party tonight, I’m not sure when my next post will be up. I’m meeting blog readers Jessica and Sarah for lunch!! Hope the weather holds up – there’s rain in the forecast.
