We are about to head out to Sea Ranch but I wanted to give you a recap of last night’s birthday extravaganza! It was Mr.Slaughter’s big 22nd and we celebrated the right way: with good friends, great food and delicious wine.
We went to Humble Pie for dinner, which is this little (but great!) restaurant in Penngrove, near Petaluma. The menu was really original and featured, obviously, PIES! 🙂
We started off with a bunch of small plates to share:
Honey milk bread with dill butter:
Proscuitto wrapped apples with brie:
For my entree, I ordered the Chicken Jalapeno Pie (you heard me right):
This was like a chicken pot pie but with black beans, cheese and jalapenos all wrapped up in a flaky crust. It was delicious but needed a little more seasoning (in my opinion..). The crust was obviously the best part! I’m a HUGE crust girl. 😉
For dessert I had a few bites of the chocolate cream pie…and picked at the crust. Obviously.
After we ate we hung out at the bar next door but I didn’t drink anymore.
The bar was covered with cat stuff! It was like Dexter was there…times a million! Michaela and I are running the Bay to Breakers 12K
in a few weeks in San Francisco and we are dressing up like cats so we discussed our costume ideas. I think I’m going to attach a tail to my camelbak. SO excited!
Don’t worry about the fact that there were bras hanging all over the ceiling…oh California.
This morning I woke up around 7:30, ate about 75% of a glo bar
and then headed out for a 5 mile run. The run went really well, surprisingly, since I thought I would be sore from my 36 mile bike ride yesterday. My tush is a bit sore but my legs were feeling strong and I paced about a 10 minute mile, which was my goal. I’m always telling myself to slow down!!
I ate a banana after my run and we are getting ready to go to brunch then head out to the Coast! Not sure if I will be able to blog tonight (there is ZERO service at Sea Ranch) but I will be taking lots of photos. Today would be my brother’s 20th birthday and I want to spend it in the most peaceful manner and place that I possibly can….obviously near the ocean!
Have a great weekend!
