Mmmmm feels so good to be blogging from my bed with the sunlight coming through the blinds. Yesterday was SO rainy and icky here but today seems really nice so far and I’m planning on going for a run down the Bay later and soaking it all in. But, back to yesterday. I took a little nap, drank some strong black tea and was off! I met a friend for dinner at my favorite place ever and we, naturally, got a pitcher of mojitos:
I proceeded to gnaw on the sugar cane because that’s what I do. Gosh, mojitos are so good. So, so, so good after drinking nothing but red wine for months.
I always order the same thing at The Columbia because I love it so! A cup of cuban black bean soup:
(that I promptly doused with hot sauce, obvi)
And a 1905 salad!!!
And then, I went a little crazy because my life has been lacking Cuban food for months so I ordered sides of plantains and yuca also:
Why oh why are plantains and yuca the best things ever???! I ate about three of the plantains and brought the rest home and ate about one huge hunk of the yuca….yuca, I swear, expands in your stomach like nothing else. I’m hoping I can find the frozen stuff back in California because I seriously love this stuff!
Mmmmm it was such a wonderful meal and I went home a very happy camper. Got a great night’s sleep and had some oatmeal with almond milk and almond butter for breakfast:
And I’m about to go meet Sarah
and Jessica at Starbucks! Plans for the day include hanging out with my girlfriends then coming home and packing all day (my parents are moving to SAVANNAH next month!) and going on a run later. I have soooo much stuff to go through here and pack up, it’s insane. I’m thrilled my parents are moving back to the Lowcountry though (before we lived in Florida, we lived in Hilton Island) because it holds a special spot in my heart.
