What Claire Ate: April 20th, 2016

This day was a cluster for a lot of reasons. I don’t think this is all I ate, but here are the photos that made it onto the phone.

First, we have a soycurl burrito and a Diet Coke.

Then there are two cocktails, but I don’t think that’s the whole story.

Something the bartender just made

Then there’s half an English muffin with some chocolate hazelnut butter and jam.

Who knows what else fell through the cracks?

Breakfast was cocoa nib-infused cold brew!

Lunch was a cold chicken sandwich with a cold glass of milk.

Supper was a burrito that I had to walk through the rain to get.

Also drank some wine (and a couple of gin cocktails). I don’t have a pic of the cocktails but I do have a pic of me drinking the wine because I was taking pics for an article and was using the wine as a prop.

Whatever.

The end.

What Claire Ate: January 17th, 2016

I ran a bunch of errands on Sunday morning, and didn’t eat anything until around 2:30 pm. (I did have some coffee, but forgot to photo it.)

The first thing I ate was some of this blurry cheese.

Also this juice.

Later, while writing a thing, I had a glass of milk and the last TJ’s chocolate caramel.

Supper was a burrito from New Season’s, eaten with a friend and paired with some wine.

(Not pictured: more wine.)

Dessert was cardamom ice cream, which was delightful.

Snack eaten while watching Narcos well past midnight: cheesy tots.

Race day had finally arrived, and I was very nervous.

Fortunately, the weather was perfect.

I had iced coffee and some yogurt for breakfast and a tomato sandwich for lunch. I quit eating around 2 pm because I prefer running on a mostly-empty stomach.

With chocolate granola!

With chocolate granola!

So good.

So good.

I spent most of the day packing for my press trip and before I knew it it was time to go!

I’m not sure how it happened, but somehow I finished it waaaaay faster than I had anticipated.

WAT.

Medal'd!

Medal’d!

Then I got my burrito.

Manged two bites.

Then I puked up my burrito (and about a gallon of electrolyte-enhanced water).

After lying in the grass for a while and dipping our feet in Vancouver Lake, we headed home, stopping at Whole Foods for La Croix and frozen pizza.

My stomach had finally calmed down, and I was able to eat our Whole Food’s goodies.

It was seriously the best thing I ever ate.

The 13th was also very long ago, but it was the day I got to collect one of my best friends and make him come home with me.

I picked up an Egg McMuffin on the way. (Sorry it’s in my lap.)

He was playing a gig at a winery, so I had a glass of wine and several BBQ samples (there was a competition going on).

Then we drove back to Portland, cleaned up a bit, and met Sean at Beermongers.

I had a radler and a soyrizo burrito.

So good.

Yesterday was kind of a cluster. I’m working on a s’mores article, so the first thing I ate was s’more ingredients.

Yup.

Yup.

Mostly nibbled here and there, but I definitely ate a whole Oreo and a bag of chips.

Oh and one of those airplane cookies.

I've got to have salt with sweet lolololol I'm gonna die.

Then I took a bite from each s’more, because taste testing.

Bleak.

Supper was some sauteed carrots with onion and a bottle of sake I split with my roommate.

I was still hungry (or maybe just malnourished?) and was delighted to find a burrito in the freezer I had forgotten about. Iw was like Christmas, except it was a burrito, and I forgot to take a pic of it.

Then I just put random things in my mouth while watching Doctor Who (trying to catch Sean up in case it really does leave Netflix).

Dried apricots

Then I went to bed and had weird dreams.
