What Claire Ate: October 4th, 2014

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.

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.

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.

The first thing I drank was very diluted cranberry juice.

Strange angle.

I ate some eggs on toast with goat cheese.

The yolks were perfect, guys.

Then I wrote a whole bunch, pausing only to refuel with coffee and mineral water.

Ignore the license plate.

After all the writing I had some apples with cheese,

and a yogurt.

Sunscreen yogurt ftw.

We did some packing related errands and stuff then went to the pirogi place we’ve been meaning to try where I tragically forgot to take a picture of the damn pirogis.

I did however get a pic of the amazing salad Sean and I shared.

That chicken schnitzel, tho.

All in all (at the restaurant and later at home), I ate 9 pirogis. They were they good.

Our check came with a free chocolate bar thing, so that was cool.

I bet Polo just can't wait to be king.

Then we went home and packed a whole bunch while listening to Leonard Cohen and drinking Italian Greyhounds.

The house is a disaster.

I don’t know what happened to the 18th, let’s just move on.

Friday marked the arrival of Stacy, which was a call for celebrating and so much beer.

Lunch beer.

Lunch beer.

We ate lunch at Mellow Mushroom. The Thai Dye pizza is pretty good, in case you were wondering.

Thumbs up.

Thumbs up.

I went to the post office and that was the last productive thing I did that day, because the rest of it was just a series of beers.

Oh, and this shot.

There was also a margarita and duck sopes, but my phone was dead by then.

What Claire Ate: September 14th, 2014 (NATALIE AND CHRIS VISIT EDITION)

If you are a reader of xoJane, you probably know Natalie.

She and her lovely boyfriend, Chris, are on holiday in Florida right now, so they popped up for a football game and FOOD.

We started with mimosas (which I forgot to photograph) and then hit up Target to see the new designer collection. I bought this dress┬ábut — more importantly — Natalie and I both purchased this doughnut sweater:

On brand.

Then we went to brunch at The Oxford Exchange.

I finally had a Pimm’s cup.

The Brits confirmed it was made properly.

These most excellent sprouts were shared.

And I had a wonderful salad with steak.

Complete with quail egg.

Then we made our way to the game, where we consumed beers and (terribly sweet and cloying just plain awful) margs.

V. decent for a stadium.

Just awful, but very large.

We got rained on.

Yeah. I skipped the weekend. I was in GA visiting family and I didn’t want to take pics of my food.

But I’m back now.

I started my day with cottage cheese with nutritional yeast but forgot to photo.

I know, not off to a strong start am I?

Lunch was tuna salad, sauteed carrots, and tomatoes.

Strange but good.

Snack was coconut yogurt.

Tasted kinda like sunscreen.

A later snack was apple with cheese and some burnt popcorn (not pictured).

THEN. I RODE MY BIKE FOR 4.5 MILES AND THEN RAN FOR A MILE AND A HALF.

I’m proud of me.

I had a beer after that, but did not take a pic because I didn’t have my phone.

Supper was eggs, potatoes, and carrots (again).

IMG_0788

I had some more of that boxed wine.

And some chocolate.

Then I watched Doctor Who and cried for the rest of my life.

OH YOU KNOW A NORMAL BREAKFAST OF COTTAGE CHEESE WITH YEAST AND TOMATOES.

That breakfast was fuel for a bike ride.

A bike ride that led me to coffee and beer and Katie.

Then we went to a different bar to drink different beer.

IDK it was good.

The bartender gave us a little taste of this magic.

Uh. So, then I went home and made a bunch of strange canapes out of what was in my fridge.

AS ONE DOES.

I grilled the bread and everything.

Then I ate some of those macarons.

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.

The afternoon was less productive than I would have liked.

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.

He’s a good guy.
