Yesterday was not a day of rest. Instead, it was a day of FUN!
The day started with brunch at our friends’ new house. They moved in just a few weeks ago, so they were excited to put their kitchen to use.
On the menu: fresh grapefruit.
Egg white omelets with veggies.
Whole wheat English muffins, turkey bacon, orange juice, and coffee. Holy brunch! It was fabulous!
After brunch, Mal and I said goodbye to our friends and headed to the Derby Street Shoppes for a little shopping spree. (More on this later!)
I shopped until I dropped and then went home for a snack and a workout.
I didn’t start my run until late in the afternoon, so the sun started to set and the nice fall breeze began to cool. The temperature was in the mid-60’s yesterday, so the weather ended up being perfect for running.
I listened to the David Gray station on Pandora, which isn’t the most rocking music, but it was exactly what I wanted to hear in order to relax and zone out. I ran a little over 6 miles in 52:21 (8:37 pace).
The Fat Cat was bumpin’ on Sunday evening, so we ended up waiting almost an hour for a table to open up. I had no idea the place was so popular!
While we waited, we ordered some drinks. I went with a pumpkin beer. I ordered a second beer just as our table was ready, so I drank it with dinner.
To start: black bean puree + sweet butter with bread.
And fried pickles! Love these!
For my entrÃ©e, I ordered the Four Bean Chili, which was made with pork, beef, chorizo, corn, tomato, and cheddar cheese. I also had a side of roasted broccolini. The chili was fantastic””lots of beans and cheese, not too meaty– but it had a serious kick to it. I was sweating while I ate it!
What a fun day. I wish all Sundays could be like yesterday!
