Sorry about missing last night, it just means you get an extra long post tonight!
Breakfast yesterday was a very green monster and bread with peanut butter
The green monster had a very ripe banana and a handful of frozen rhubarb, water and a ton of spinach. It was really thick and it was nice to have one fresh that didn’t have to be shaken!
The farmer’s market was small but pretty cool. It was hard not to buy everything I wanted, but I reminded myself that the winter squash season is just beginning. I came away with a big bag of basil
I also bought a bag of granola. I had this granola at a coffee shop about a month ago and really liked it
And I brought home a raspberry muffin and a blueberry muffin to split with Hubby for (second) breakfast
The raspberries were pretty tart but the blueberry muffin seemed to have a bit of cinnamon in it!
Since we had the muffins at about 11:30 we didn’t eat lunch until about 1:00. Hubby and I just split a blue box of macaroni to which a hot dog was added after the picture was taken
Everyone was pretty hungry after sitting out in the sun during the football game so after a brief stop at Kroger we came home for some mozzarella sticks
Dinner was burgers, finally! My craving for burgers had actually faded, but I won’t say no! With pepperjack cheese, red onion, and ketchup
We watched Watchment before, during, and after dinner (it’s long!). Something I could have lived without. It’s long and slightly complicated and I was tired. I know it was supposed to be big, but I don’t get it.
Breakfast today was fast and easy. Yogurt and Kashi Go Lean Crunch. The sweetness of the cereal helped a lot with the plain yogurt.
I ate on the back deck with the dogs while mystery roommate and his buddy slowly woke up in the living room. I already forgot about my new granola! It was nice to eat outside though.
My parents and one of my brothers came out today for the annual Atlanta area Shop Hop. Atlanta knitting stores host a week where if you buy something from each participating store you’re entered to win big prizes. One of the stores is all the way out in Watkinsville, about 15 minutes from our apartment. Mom organizes her trip to see our new apartment around the shop hop every year and dad and my brother decided to join. We had hoped to go back to Last Resort for lunch but there was a line out the door so after trying a couple of other places we ended up at Mellow Mushroom for lunch.
I got a Greek salad
I also had a slice of veggie pizza. I know many bloggers who ask for no butter or parmesian on the crust, but I adore MM pizza crust. My favorite ever. Butter it up, my friends!
Unfortunately the crust seemed really thin and a little too toasted. I stole some of Hubby’s crust from his ground beef and mushroom slice and that was much better. The boys stuck to the meat while my mom and I had veggie. And I got to bring some home for dinner tomorrow! Yum yum yum. I also drank about half of my mom’s Bass.
After lunch we dropped the Jasons at the apartment to watch football and picked up Alex to go to Mainstreet Yarn and Fibers. It is such a cute shop. I need to finish the projects I’ve got going now so I can find something new to knit! Soon after the family left and I took a nap. Waking up it was kind of disappointing to realize that all the things I was looking forward to this weekend are over. I sat outside and finished reading 26.2 Marathon Stories. Until it started raining.
Dinner ended up being some brown rice and beans that have been in the fridge since Friday.
And I couldn’t resist having a few pieces of okra, microwaved with olive oil and salt
Yum yum yum.
Now I get to look forward to seeing my cousin, running my first race, and exploring the Ellijay Apple Festival next weekend!
