I ate a veggie calzone bigger than my head for lunch today.
For the record, I have a really large head.
Case in point: I’m part Irish, and my family called me Egghead as a baby.
You can imagine how large my head must be 25 years later. I think my curly Medusa-like hair has a tendency to block the grave enormity of my skull, but trust me, it’s big.
Anyways, I washed the calzone down with a cold, crisp Blue Moon beer but not before scarfing a ghetto iceberg lettuce salad first. More than six hours later, the miracle of all miracles happened: my garbage disposal of a stomach is still full.
It’s currently 7:30pm as I type this, and I don’t know what to make for dinner.
What to do, what to do…
Instead of force feeding myself food that won’t actually physically fit in my stomach, I’ll go through some of the gratuitous pictures I took this weekend with my new camera?
Yes, that’s what I will do!
Starting with my new thrift store finds which totaled a whopping $2.00…
One 1970’s milk pourer, an antique tea tin and a 1950’s-style sundae glass.
Then, I’ll reminisce about the lovely Saturday night dinner date I had with my two friends Greg + Ryan. I mean, how can you resist feasting on delicious food with a face like this?
Or a face like this?
While the gentlemen were classy and opted for splitting a bottle of Riesling, I’m clearly a down-home Wisconsin girl who wanted nothing but a beer.
In my defense, it was a Troubador Blonde Ale, which is a Belgian pale ale and means I’m still kinda classy.
While we really wanted to try one of each of the appetizers on the Cooper’s Tavern menu, we settled on the Beer Cheese Pretzels.
I was not disappointed.
In fact, I told the server I wanted to drink the beer cheese dipping sauce.
She laughed and told me I’m not the first one to have said that.
It made me feel better.
For the main course, I stuck with the Amy’s Salad: spinach, brandied cranberries, candied walnuts, pear, apple, crisped goat cheese and a balsamic vinaigrette.
It was the bomb dot com.
After dinner, I somehow scooted my butt to the gym at 8:00pm on a Saturday night. Don’t ask me how that happened, because I still have no idea. All I do know is that I did 30 minutes on the elliptical followed by 20 minutes of stretching, and I am slightly sore today.
Can you say out-of-shape?
I awoke this morning to a beautifully crafted yog mess.
1 cup plain Greek yog
1 sliced banana
1/4 cup Hint of Honey Galaxy Granola
drizzle of agave
drizzle of peanut butter
Then I worked, ate my face off (or at least ate a calzone the size of my face off), worked some more and am now back at my apartment where a slew of to-dos is waiting for me to finish this blog post.
