So, how many of you went to a sheep farm this weekend? Anybody? Nobody!? I can’t be the only crazy one.
Before I get to that, let me rewind a bit and tell you about the awesome time I had on Saturday night. I skipped taking pictures of eats today since all I had was leftovers.
I ended my last post with breakfast on Saturday morning. I ate pretty lightly for the rest of the day because Jeff and I had plans to go out with our friends, Jess and Seth, for a late dinner on Saturday night. To prevent this post from becoming a book, I am not going to post my eats for during the day on Saturday. They were boring anyway!
Jess and Seth got to our apartment at around 8 and we headed to the Moon & River Cafe for dinner. Unfortunately, the tiny place was packed and there was nowhere to sit so we left to go somewhere else. We’ll go back another day for lunch when it’s not so busy. 🙂 We ended up at a local brewing company called Brown’s instead.
I knew what I wanted the second I opened the menu.
If you can’t read the description:
Vegetarian Black Bean & Barley Burger
Made with brewery barley, black beans, red and green peppers, onions, garlic, and a special blend of herbs and spices.
My mouth definitely exploded when I bit into it. I know I had a black bean burger on Friday night but that was frozen and this definitely was not. All of the different flavors blended excellently together. I need to recreate this at home! I didn’t eat the fries because the waitress told me that they are cooked in the same oil that the chicken wings are cooked in. I’m not sure how strict of a vegetarian I want to be yet so I passed on them. What do you think?
Of course, I ordered a beer with dinner. C’mon! It’s a brewery!
When we got home, Jess and I cracked open a bottle of wine.
And things got a bit silly. I’m not really sure how we got ourselves up the next morning to go to the sheep farm.
I made a big batch of broccoli eggs for breakfast for everyone.
And then we were off!
Amazing! We’re planing to go back next month to see the lambing!
I seriously don’t think I can ever eat meat again after petting a cow. Looks like it’s going to be veggies only for life!
On the way home, we stopped at Uncommon Grounds in Saratoga Springs for lunch.
I ordered veggies and hummus on a toasted rosemary olive bagel. Veggies included: tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, and sprouts.
I love this bagel! They don’t have it at the Albany Uncommon Grounds for some reason. 🙁 I ate half and took the rest home and brought it with me today for lunch.
When we got home, I did some yoga and then made a veggie (+ fruit) and pita chip plate for a snack.
Yes. More veggies and more hummus. I can’t get enough!
Dinner was delicious!
I made baked cheesy pasta with breadcrumbs and broccoli.
I’ll save the recipe for another post (unless specifically requested in a comment or email) since this post is gigantic already. I’m sure I’ll be making it again!
Breakfast this morning was the same as yesterday’s breakfast. Lunch was the same as yesterday’s lunch. And dinner was…wait for it…the same as yesterday’s dinner (shocker!). It was a day of repeats. I got up super early to read for class and didn’t get a chance to workout so I took today as a rest day! (I may still do some yoga to relax)
Hope you enjoyed the loooonngggg recap of my weekend!!
