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.
Thursday I made whipped cream and butter for a post, so I just ate whipped cream and butter.
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).
OH MY LUMPS
The day began with salad.
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.
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.
The afternoon was less productive than I would have liked.
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.
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.
I love Lima beans.
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.”
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).
Then we rode our bikes to 7eventh Sun Brewery.
I got some sours and a shirt.
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.
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.
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.
And here you are. and it’s such a beautiful day.
We have three days of food to get through, and it was a weird three days, food-wise.
Our hero begins her day with a grilled honeyed goat cheese sandwich.
There’s a cranberry drink in the background there.
Then nothing else was consumed until I met some people at Dunedin Brewery for a birthday.
I had a whole mess (4?) of these.
Hibiscus something or other.
EACH MORE DELICIOUS THAN THE LAST.
I think I ate 3 or 4 chicken wings somewhere through the night.
THE NIGHT IS DARK AND FULL OF DEAD CHICKEN ARMS.
We then ended up at another bar. I got one more beer, danced to MIA’s “Bad Girls” on the jukebox, went home and made a plate of greasy food.
It was very good.
Because Tuesday ended with cocktails, Wednesday began with coconut water.
With a splash of pure cranberry.
Lunch was a tuna sandwich.
v basic. v good.
Went to the pub to watch the MOST BORING WORLD CUP GAME EVER.
But I ordered a very un-boring beer: Cigar City’s Horchata Ale.
At halftime, went to a British pub. Ordered chips with gravy.
I switched to Diet Coke.
After the “game” was over, ran some errands and then went home.
Sean made pasta for dinner.
We watched GoT reruns and I ate some dehydrated fruit. I also ate some dark chocolate but forgot to photograph it.
The night is dark and full of (fruit) leather.
