What Claire Ate: October 6th, 2014

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).

What Were You Eating New Year’s…New YEAR’S EVE?

HAPPY NEW YEAR, BIBBLES!!!

How did you celebrate the last day of the 2012? I celebrated it by eating AND drinking! Do you want to know what I ate-slash-drank? If you do not, then you are reading the wrong blog. If this is the case…please leave. Just go…I don’t wanna talk to you anymore.

ANYWIZZLE.

I began the last day of last year with lots of bread!

Some baked brie…

With apricot preserves, natch.

AND FINALLY: ¬†A Rueben Crepe. WHAT?! YES. THAT’S RIGHT? I AM GREAT AT PICKING THINGS OFF MENUS.

With some mustard.

That crepe was actually a little soggy.

Then we took a drive to the city. I didn’t get a picture of all the cows on the beautiful hills… which is a shame…When I pointed them out to Sean, he said: “THE HILLS HAVE COWS!”

I’m sorry I’m not sorry that I laughed at that.

Cow-less hills.

Cow-less hills.

 

Once we reached our hotel, we did what any red-blooded non-terrorist would do…

Some Sorta Chocolate Stout.

Then we walked around and I bought a tacky-fabulous fake leopard coat. Then we went to dinner…which I will present without comment…in pictures.

THE CUCUMBERS TAKE THIS TO THE NEXT LEVEL.

Then we went to a speakeasy and drank punch and champagne and whiskey and saw a burlesque show and had our own table because we are super important.

One drink had leaves.
