I was going to eat two boiled duck eggs, but then I deviled them which was a strange breakfast, even for me.

It was good though.

At some point I know that I ate two clementines.

Yesterday was practically a parody of my diet. I wouldn’t believe it if I didn’t have the pictures. Anyway.

Breakfast was an assortment of ingredients that went into making this thing:

Just your basic pizza dip.

That means I ate a handful of cheese, some pepperoni slices, and Kalamata olives. Then I had some of the dip.

I was pretty full after that, but I had some coffee.

Sean actually stole this cup and I had to get another :(

Around 5 pm, my roommate got home and we went for a run. I stopped at 1.5 miles, but Matt kept going and did 3 because he thinks he’s better than me.

I ate this stroopwaffle.

Then I polished off the last bit of wine from last night.

Baaaarely any.

Then I made myself a (double) pickletini and took a bath.

Then I was a little drunk and everything went downhill.

For some weird reason, my stomach started to hurt. So I went to bed.

The first thing I put in my body was coffee, followed quickly by wine samples at TJ’s. (I bought two bottles.)

The first thing I ate was traditional breakfast food, but I didn’t eat it until around 1, so it was more of a brunch.

From-scratch pancakes, bacon, fried duck egg.

That was all very heavy, so I had to wait for a little while, but I eventually went for a run and ended up doing a 5K (no walking!) for the first time in over a year.

Then we went to Portland’s only cat cafe, Purrington’s. I had a meowmosa.

I should have stolen a coaster.

Supper was an “odds and ends” kind of cheese plate.

I didn’t eat anything on Saturday until around 3 pm, and then I ate a feast. But before that, I went to the Farmer’s Market and bought duck eggs, chicken eggs, purple carrots, and beef bones. We then spent a couple of hours trying to find Sean a cane (he sprained his foot) but were unsuccessful. When we finally did eat, it was at Nicholas Restaurant, and it was delicious.

The meal began with a giant pita, placed upon a pedestal for all to partake.

Most impressive.

I ordered an “iced Turkish coffee” and received this:

After all of that, we did some more errands and then went home. I walked the dogs and then head out again to hang out with REDACTED and make fried lotus fruit.

New favorite.

I also had this beer, some chayote salad, and three diet cokes. REDACTED thought the lotus was better than a potato chip but idk, that’s a pretty bold feeling.

Dessert was M&M’s and some unsuccessful sorbet (not pictured).

No pretzel :(

When I got home, I drank some gin and watched Doctor Who.

Around 1 am, Sean and I were both a little hungry so I made blue box.

I also stole his pickle.

Then I got a Flemish sour that wasn’t really that sour.

A little disappointing, tbh.

I had ordered the bone marrow, but the ratio or bone to bread was waaaaaay off.

ONE TINY BONE.

Also it must be noted that bread crumbs have no place on bone marrow. Let the meat butter speak for itself, people.

For supper, we met up with a friend for tacos at Porque No. I’m glad we gave this place another chance because I was very impressed this time.

Yesterday was a pretty good food day. I had avocado and cheese toast for breakfast, but only ate about 2/3 of it.

Plus coffee, obviously.

Breakfast was dessert disguised as yogurt.

The I went on a two mile run with Sean. My legs and knees and back all protested pretty heavily so that was fun. My reward was a broken Oreo.

I couldn't find the broken bits.

Supper was with a friend at Sasquatch Brewing Company, which was delicious. We shared a flight and a bunch of appetizers, because I like VARIATION.

The chef was a friend of my friend, and she was nice enough to come sit and chat with us for a bit. She was quite delightful, tbh. We drank cider and talked about food (surprise!).

Later that night, Sean and I watched Doctor Who and ate Doritos dipped in queso.
