Yay Jessisca! And thank you to all who left comments!

On another note, What Claire Ate is going to be wildly inconsistent, if not nonexistent, for the next couple of weeks as we are moving from Florida to Oregon. I’m very excited about the move, and can’t wait to share all the amazing food and drink Portland has to offer.

Talk to you soon!

 

 

 

What Claire Ate: October 9th, 2014 PLUS A GIVEAWAY (KIND OF)

10 Oct

Hey there party people.

Yesterday morning, I had coffee.

Shock, awe, etc.

I also had some toast.

We are in the “eating all the food in the house before we move outta here” stage of packing and, since the house is full of bread and cheese products, lunch was a quesadilla.

Accompanying beverage was ginger ale with cranberry juice.

Tart AND refreshing.

Supper was homemade meat sauce with pasta.

Dessert was ice cream.

Then we went down the street to have a beer with some friends, saying goodbyes and all that stuff :(

V good.

Now, about that giveaway.

If you read any of my stuff on xoJane, you may have seen my review of Molecule-R’s new Aromafork. If you haven’t read it, please do. That way, you’ll know if you want it or not.

Anyway, I don’t want to move with this kit, so I figured I’d send it to one of you.

Leave a comment below with why you want this set of forks, and the winner will be chosen at random on Monday.

Oh, and I’ll be at Epcot Food & Wine this weekend, so if you see me, say hello!

I had some coffee (not pictured). Instead of my usual “subsist solely on coffee until 3 PM” thing that I do, I got a salad at normal lunch time (noonish).

This should really be called “What Claire Drank,” but we’ll just leave it.

We started out cautiously enough. I poured Friday’s coffee over some ice and drank that because I was too impatient to brew more.

Day-old coffee, reinvented.

Then I really didn’t eat anything until I was absolutely starving (we were very involved in some packing) so we broke down and just grabbed a mess of tacos from Taco Bell.

Just a pile.

We did more packing stuff, and then were graced by Ed and Marianne!

We went to Mellow Mushroom for dinner where we had cocktails:

And pizza:

Here’s where things get dicey. I know I had some more cocktails at home, and a bunch of beer and wine out later, but I also know that I didn’t manage to photograph all of it. Here’s what I did manage to capture:

There won’t be a WCA for the 5th of October, because I was pretty hungover and didn’t give a damn.

I’m not even sure how it happened, but the first thing I ate was some Goldfish I grabbed in the Target checkout line.

They were a little stale :(

Then I had an actual lunch of tuna salad and crackers.

Then I did some things to prepare for future, top-secret posts.

Then I ate a peanut butter and pickle sandwich.

Classic.

A couple hours later, I was hungry again, so I ate this noodle thing my sister had left at my house.

I ate about half.

Then we went to see The Skeleton Twins. Not pictured: popcorn and Cherry Coke.

When we got home, I made some parm crisps.

Too good.
