Breakfast/ Dinner/ Lunch

Catch Up

Good morning (good afternoon??!)!

Sorry for pulling a disappearing act but this is the first time I’ve been near my laptop in 24 hours. Work was insane yesterday!

Here’s a recap!

Yesterday on my way to work, I snacked on a carrot and almonds (exciting, I know):


Lunch was more leftover curry and an asian pear. I’m sort of addicted to these….love the crunch!


I went to my favorite coffee place on my break and grabbed the world’s best vanilla latte. Seriously, it was really the best latte that I’ve EVER had. I wish all y’all could experience Flying Goat Coffee…..its pure love. I also nibbled on this bar!


Berry is our newest flavor of the energy bars and I am addicted! I think I even prefer it over the chocolate ones….it tastes like something out of my childhood…maybe a fruit roll up or something? And so chewy! I love it!

I just stopped at home for a very brief second after work and then raced back out to meet some friends for dinner. We went to Underwood Bistro in Graton, which is a little town about halfway between Healdsburg and the coast. I loved it!!! I also loved that they had french onion soup on their menu because of course when I see that I HAVE to order it since it’s pretty much my favorite thing ever….


Oh, heavens, this was cheesy and delicious. I became absolutely addicted to F.O.S. when I was in Paris and now I just can’t help myself when I see it on a menu. There’s just something about it that gets me every time.

We also split this flatbread with blue cheese, walnuts and caramelized onions. I had one piece—


And, for my entree, I had the seared tuna, which came in a miso broth with udon noodles, edamame and wakame salad. It was delicious!


No dessert but I did have a cosmo with my meal!

Got home rather late and pretty much crashed, hence why there was no blog post yesterday evening. This morning, made an omelet with 1 egg + 1 egg white, spinach and a light laughing cow cheese, smothered in hot sauce, and an ezekiel muffin with raspberry jam—


Plus chocolate Superfood with almond milk!


Feeling much better now!

I’ve got some catch up work to get done today and then it’s fried chicken night at Zin with my other two misplaced southerners, Adam and Hardy. There’s just something about squeezing honey on your buttermilk biscuits that takes me the 3,000 miles home in a heartbeat.

    I grew up in Georgia, so I’m ALL about honey and fried chicken and biscuits. Sometimes I get strange looks from my New Yorker friends when I ask for honey at a restaurant, but it’s so good!

    I want to try the grass bars so badly but at $2.50 a bar(at whole foods) I’m not pulling the trigger on those!! I don’t understand why they are so pricey-you can get an entire box of kashi bars on sale for that price. Maybe if they lower the price to something reasonable I will be able to give them a try!

    Asian pears are the same price of regular ones here, I need to try them!! And the “FOS” looks aaawwwesome. How can something covered in melted cheese not taste delicious?

    If you weren’t so fabulous I would hate you for being able to indulge and stay so cute! The curry and pear sounds amazing – and the spinach omelet the next day was a perfect choice! Hope to add another displace Southerner to your group soon – I hear Shrimp & Grits with fried okra crying your name!

    That soup looks unbelievably yummy and cheesy! Do you ever eat a bad meal there? The food looks incredible! I am drooling! 😉 I would love to try the berry whole food bar! I wonder if they have it yet at my Whole Foods. I’ll have to check and try it out! 🙂

    Love French Onion Soup & gourmet flatbread pizza & good fried chicken for dinner sounds delicious right now, too. We used to go a popular dive ‘The Nugget’ in Summerland next door to Santa Barbara on cold Sunday nights. Everyone from Ronald Reagan to Bill Clinton went there. They also had biscuits and honey, but unfortunately sold the place. So I’ll have to enjoy vicariously through your pix…saves calories!

    Your entree from last night looks delicious. I like the idea of fish in a miso broth. I’m going to look for that at restaurants from now on. I love miso soup, but it’s usually my app 🙂

    Mmmm…French onion soup is one of my all-time favorites and that look likes one amazing bowl! I live overseas and have been searching for a source of Amazing Grass and guess what?? I found one that will ship directly to me, so I’ve got some SuperFood and bars on the way. Kinda wish I’d grabbed a box of the berry bars now…next time!

    French Onion Soup is my favorite as well! And I love getting flatbread at restaurants! Turns out better than at home!
    And I decided that I need to try that Amazing Grass! I will go on a hunt for it tomorrow!
    How is Dexter settling in? I’m sure he is happy to be with you! Just not used to the chilly weather!

    I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
