Good evening folks . Today was a loooong day at work. I’m totally exhausted, so right now my butt is glued to the couch for quite possibly the rest of the night.
Last night was a good time, though! I met up with Elly and our other friend Nikki for dinner and drinks at North Peak Brewing Company. I don’t think I’ve been there since my birthday, which is sad because it’s one of my favorite restaurants. I start off with a North Light beer:
And since North Peak has amazing pizzas, we decided that was the way to go for our meals. Pepperoni for Elly and Nikki:
And pesto chicken with wild mushrooms for me :
(chicken, sundried tomato, mushrooms, cheese and pesto sauce)
It’s funny, because a few years ago I wouldn’t be caught dead ordering something like this. I used to be the pickiest eater on the planet, and refused to eat anything “weird.” True story: I was such a picky eater that I wouldn’t even eat sauce on my pizza. In fact, the only way I would eat it was with cheese and black olives. I can’t imagine eating pizza without sauce now; it wouldn’t be pizza!
Oh, and this may have happened last night as well…
I know it looks good, but honestly, I wouldn’t order it again. There’s brownie on the bottom of that and it was hard as a rock. Totally not worth the calories.
We followed up dinner with a couple more drinks at Kilkenny’s, the Irish pub below the restaurant.
It was a good time with the girls and a fun night out that I definitely needed after a long week.
Oh, and Elly wanted me to make sure that you all knew that she is in fact wearing shorts in this picture, just in case anyone was alarmed .
Breakfast this morning was a big bowl of oatmeal full of all kinds of fun stuff to fuel me through a long morning at work.
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 cup skim milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder
- big blob of almond butter
- dried cherries
I was so glad that I had this filling breakfast because we were so busy at work today that I didn’t get my lunch break until 3:00! 7 hours without food makes me very grumpy.
I was a slacker with lunch and dinner pictures, but lunch was my leftover pizza from last night and dinner was a chicken burger. Yum.
I predict a very early bedtime tonight, and I’m totally okay with that.
Are you a picky eater or did you used to be?
