Alrighty, I am ALMOST getting caught up enough to blog about the present! Since our vacation, I have been behind in my posting. ..And then my laptop died. (Actually, he experienced a traumatic incident from which he unfortunately couldn’t recover [luckily my hard drive survived!!]). :( As of today my new one is up and running, with all my photos, music, Office, etc., all transferred over; i.e., my life is almost together (at least in terms of blogging – possibly not in other aspects :P ).
Check out this delicious find from Whole Foods, last week. It’s a Mediterranean Vegetarian Platter filled with a giant hummus scoop, mini pitas, falafel, stuffed grape leaves, and tabbouli. Holy yum!! These are the best grape leaves I’ve ever had in my life (but I haven’t had very many in my life! Ha.) Filled with rice, chickpeas, and seasonings I wish I could identify. Oh yum. Yum. I made two tasty lunches from this $7 platter.
Friday night, dinner with in-laws. It’s always hard for me to resist trying a new black bean burger when I see one on a menu, so that is exactly what I ordered at Max & Erma’s. Topped with a hefty dollop of guacamole and pico de gallo. The burger was nicely cooked (tastier, and much more well-done than the one I ordered at North Peak [shows two posts previous this this one]), almost a tiny-bit overdone, but a quality black bean burger fo shiz. Served with a salad of baby greens and sundried tomatoes.
Saturday was pretty much the biggest diet-fail since I started my "diet"! (My stomach wasn’t too happy by the end of the day, either). The day began with a Hippie Breakfast – hippie hash, eggs, super rye toast-, and, as J.H. would likely appreciate (read this post to find out why), a side of BACON.
Saturday night I also ate a burger, but this time I went for the "real" thing. A nice meaty burger from Bagger Dave’, and Fries with Chipotle Seasoning. I used to practically be able to see this restaurant from my old apartment window (and still live like less than a mile away from it), yet I’ve only eaten here once before. I opted to design my own burger, using their little checklist. I also figured out why they are called "Bagger" Dave’s.. (see the brown bag encasing my burger?).
- Regular beef burger with Sesame seed bun
- Pepper Jack Cheese
- Chipotle Sauce
- Romaine lettuce, tomato, fresh onion, ketchup, mayo, mustard, pickle, green olives.
Finally, a post about TODAY! This morning I made a pair of omelets, for myself and hub. Loaded it up with veggies: shredded zuke, red onion, tomato, green pepper, mini bellas, and shredded cheddar. At one point this looked like a legit, profesh omelet, but then I flipped it and it got slopped around a little. Obviously still tasty.
