So, it’s no secret that I like food…A LOT. I mean, have you met me? I know I can’t be the only one though, so I thought it would be fun to list some surefire ways to tell if you are, in fact, a foodie. If I missed any, be sure to let me know in the comments.
You might be a foodie if…
It’s 6 a.m. and you’re already thinking about what you’re going to have for dinner.
I immediately fell in love with Panacea’s outdoor seating space, and we took full advantage of it since it was such a beautiful day in Western North Carolina.
Susanna and I spent a good chunk of our date hanging with a cat that just randomly wandered up to our table. It even sat on Susanna’s lap for bit (if you click on that link, please ignore my ridiculous face and pay attention to the awesome mug instead).
We had a great time getting to know one another and talking about all things blog-related. I definitely see more meet-ups in our future. Preferably at Panacea because 1) the atmosphere was great, 2) the coffee was delicious, and 3) perhaps most important: I want to hang out with that cat again. Don’t tell Aslan!
Speaking of blog friends, a few weeks ago Teri and I started talking mugs on Twitter.
Seriously, the number of mugs Jeff and I own for just the two of us is completely ridiculous, especially considering there are probably only three I drink from regularly. But I just can’t get let go of them and I’m always compelled to buy more. It drives Jeff crazy, but I’m a hoarder, what can I say?
@afoodiestaysfit Well the hashtag definitely makes it official. *runs away to buy ALL the mugs*
I whipped it together after returning home from a particularly challenging spin class, where my bike was stuck in a ridiculously high resistance for most of the class until I finally decided to move to a different bike. (Side Note: I don’t know what it is with me and spin classes lately. Last week I pulled my pants off by accident and this week I nearly pedaled my legs off. Sheesh!)
This burrito, though, this burrito was magical. I’m not exaggerating when I say it’s probably the best one I’ve ever made. Now, I may have just been ravenous from my workout and in one of those phases where I would have eaten the frying pan if I didn’t get something in my stomach ASAP, but I sincerely believe my taste buds know better than that. Please, please, please go make this and let me know if I’m totally insane.
While you’re doing that, I’m going to chug ALL of this Peanut Butter & Jelly Brown Ale from Catawba Brewing Co.
“PB&J Time Ale is a ‘Light Brown’ ale brewed from five different grains that is then lovingly-aged on raspberries and roasted peanuts. Take a sip, let the bread, fruit, and nut flavors mingle on your palate, and recall the carefree days of youth as you enjoy our PB&J in a glass.”
Yes, it smells and tastes just like a PB&J sandwich. No, it isn’t weird or gross. Yes, it’s completely delicious.
I wonder if I can special order it for our wedding. Hey, Catawba, let’s get on that! P.S. I love you.
Speaking of our wedding, here is a short wedding planning update. Yesterday morning I ran into Jeff’s office to remind him that it’s ALMOST MY BIRTHDAY. Then I called my mom and told her too, ya know, in case she forgot. Totally normal for an almost-29-year-old, right? I’ve always loved birthdays and this year I’m extra excited because we’re going to New York to visit family and friends and to go BRIDESMAID DRESS SHOPPING. Caps were necessary there. This whole planning a wedding is moving right along. We hired a photographer earlier this week, I updated our wedding website with accommodation info for our guests, and I contacted some DJs. I’d be lying if I told you I’m not completely overwhelmed. I mean all I really care about is the food and the cake anyway. Oh, and Jeff, I care about him too!
OK, now that I’ve talked your ear off, I’m off to yoga!
Are you a mug hoarder? Do you like camping out in coffee shops? What are your plans for the weekend? Let’s chat!
