My Irish Egghead…and a giveaway

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.

Yes, 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
cinnamon
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.

Before I go however, remember how I reviewed Three Sisters cereal here, here and here?

Well, Three Sisters want to share the love with YOU!

That’s right – I’ve got four coupons for FREE bags of Three Sisters Cereal, which is sold exclusively at Whole Foods. There will be TWO winners who will each receive two coupons for free cereal as well as some Everythingtarian-approved treats (perhaps store-bought, perhaps homemade) from yours truly.

Here’s what you must do to win:

Go to the Three Sisters Cereal website, check out their six cereal varieties and leave me a comment telling me which kind of cereal you most want to try.

That’s it! If you want to Tweet about it, link back or send the giveaway to family + friends, that’s cool too. But make sure you leave that comment!

I’ll announce the winner on Wednesday.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, my egghead and I have some things to get done…

Oh, I’d love to try the Marshmallow Oaties!

Definitely would love to try the cinnamon sweets! Cinnamon toast crunch was my favorite as a kid and I’ve been longing to have it for a while!

Rebecca October 27, 2010 at 7:09 am

Mmm… I am a huge honey bunches of oats fan– so I would love to try the Three Sisters version!

holy crap, they’ve “healthified” (err…dechemicalized?) golden grahams. it’s like someone finally caved and told me i *could* go back to childhood!

I def want to try the Cinnamon Sweets! I love anything with cinnamon in it, ESP in cereal yumm!

I love the letter Z and I think that adding pretty much any word makes the word awesome. For this reason, I would LOVE to try Graham Crackerz. How can you go wrong when the flavor has a ‘z’ in it’s name?

Marshmallow oaties look good, but I’m intrigued by the dark chocolate oatmeal. I never buy pre-flavored oatmeal, because I love making my own, but that one just might be interesting enough to pick up.

i’m a total graham cracker girl so i’d totally try Graham Crackerz. the marshmallow one looks good too but they said it has gelatin so i knixed that. :\

Soft pretzels are my favorite! I was literally just telling Ari’s bro that I want to serve them at our party on Sunday!

I’d like to try Graham Crackerz… Golden Grahams were my favorite growing up!
