Breakfast was actually breakfast foods.

IMG_0479Lunch was bites from a variety of weird sandwiches I made for a post.

Because it is sandwich month, son.

Supper was a sandwich with more of those chips.

Then I ate a bunch of chocolate.

14 Aug

Wow. It’s been a while, huh? I’ve been traveling, and when I travel I tend to not do this blog. No one pays me to do this blog, so it’s the first thing to be dropped if I get at all busy.

I’ve been kind of busy.

Anyway, let’s talk food.

Breakfast was toast with homemade cultured butter and nutritional yeast.

Always with yeast.

Lunch was coffee and macarons, I guess?

Ace.

Ace.

The macarons were from Chocolate Pi, a bakery located across the street from Bern’s Steakhouse, adjacent to The Epicurean (the food-themed hotel also owned by Bern’s).

After consuming these delightful cookies, my sister and I went to the happy hour at The Epicurean’s hotel bar, Elevage.

Dith got a couple of cocktails, I ordered an iced tea, and we split the escargot risotto and deviled eggs.

With roasted garlic foam.

With blackened crab.

The risotto was excellent. The snails were perfectly cooked and tender. The garlic foam was delicious. My only complaint is the rice seemed sliiiiiightly under-cooked. Just slightly.

The deviled eggs were disappointing. Way too much mustard. I barely detected any egg yolk, just grainy, spicy mustard.

So it was a mixed bag.

We went home and picked up Sean for some grocery shopping. While at Publix, I finally caved and bought the new wasabi and ginger Lays.

GAME CHANGER.

GAME CHANGER.

They were perfect.

I put them on a tuna sandwich.

It was pretty good too.

We had some popcorn, but I forgot to take a photo of that.

We watched Tangled.

I ate this ice cream sandwich.

With marzipan cake.

It was a good day.

I was flying all day Friday, so I didn’t post Thursday’s WCA.

And since I’ve landed, I haven’t been too great at photographing everything. I always feel weird taking pics with my iPhone in nice restaurants with low lighting; it just feels tacky.

ANYWAY.

Thursday I made whipped cream and butter for a post, so I just ate whipped cream and butter.

With berries.

I MADE THIS.

Then I drank some beer and ate some tacos.

Then I drank more beer and Sean made me a grilled cheese sandwich (which I forgot to photo).

The day began with salad.

GREEN THINGS.

GREEN THINGS.

Guess who also ate a for lunch?

If you guessed “Hulk Hogan,” you are correct.

I wanted to get a selfie with him but he was surrounded by children and his tall girlfriend was very intimidating.

ANYWAY.

A new coffee shop had opened up next to my favorite bar, so I was like “I’ll go write there and support local business.”

They were closed BUT the owner was still there and made me a coffee anyway.

Unfortunately, this means that I just went next door to write.

SURPRISE.

SURPRISE.

The afternoon was less productive than I would have liked.

ETC. ETC.

ETC. ETC.

After I was done arguing with old dudes about The Eagles (both the band and the NFL team) my husband came to get me and bought me a hamburger.

It was very good.

It was very good.

He’s a good guy.

So I only have two pictures for this day. I really don’t think I ate anything else. I don’t even remember coffee.

I know I had diluted cranberry juice; that I know with certainty.

Anyway. I made some ceviche for this.

I ate five of these little toasts.

Then I wrote more things and forgot about eating more until around 11 PM when I ate this bowl of Lima beans.

With cheese and nutritional yeast and stuff.

SATURDAY.

There will be no Sunday because I drank a bottle of Rose and forgot to take pics. I didn’t realize I had done it until I was like “is anyone else enjoying this Rose?” and everyone was like “uh, no.”

So.

We had lunch at Mellow Mushroom because we were running errands in that area. We both ordered salads.

They put a lot of bacon on their spinach salad.

And we split the “small” pretzels.

I was not expecting so much pretzel.

After errands, I made my own Doritos Loaded (writing that up today).

GLORY BE!

GLORY BE!

Then we rode our bikes to 7eventh Sun Brewery.

I got some sours and a shirt.

JUST DELIGHTFUL.

Then we rode our bikes home and I shared wine (not pictured) and chips and dip with a friend.

We later replenished the sad chip supply.

OOF.

I need to eat a bag of kale.

ALRIGHT NEXT DAY (FRIDAY).

Full Disclosure: I’ve ingested coffee and pseudoephedrine¬†today, so THINGS ARE SHOUTY.

Anyway.

The day began with a Trader Joe’s Veggie Masala Burger.

With homemade curry ketchup.

Then BECAUSE IT IS MY DUTY I went and tried the Doritos Loaded abominations at 7-11 (report forthcoming).

Also it was free Slurpy day but they were out of cherry to mix with Coke so I’m not even sure why I participated.

My straw is too big.

Supper was a Publix vegggie sub.

Dessert was an ice cream sandwich and Fargo.
