Yesterday, I broke my own Homespun Sunday rule and went out for breakfast. Yup.
I was starving after my race yesterday and I was also tired. Once I showered, Scott mentioned going out to breakfast.
“Oh we haven’t gone out to breakfast in a very long time.”
“I know, so let’s go!”
And I agreed. Not only because I love the idea of going out to breakfast but also because I was tired and hungry and quite frankly I wanted someone else to cook for me and bring me copious amounts of food.
I knew exactly what I wanted and even though I could have made it all myself, I didn’t want to take the time nor make the mess in the kitchen it would require. Totally being honest. So I bundled up (I was still warming back up from a cool race) and off to breakfast we went.
Saturday, I um, didn’t really fuel myself properly for Sunday’s race (more on that in the race recap), so not only was I making up for racing but I also had to play a bit of “catch up” as well. This is my entire breakfast and while I didn’t eat it all, I did eat most of it.
You can see in the upper left hand corner is a blueberry pancake with a sizable dent in it. I started eating before snagging a picture. I had to get some food in my belly quick. The pancake almost takes up the entire plate, I ate it all. I ate all the potatoes, scrambled eggs, and one sausage link. Four is a bit much even for me. I didn’t eat the English muffin only because I forgot to ask for it unbuttered. The fruit I split with Scott, and I had three cups of coffee with a few glasses of water.
I’m pretty sure that when I ordered all that food, the server thought that my eyes were bigger than my stomach. I had a small piece of pancake left that I hadn’t got to yet and the server almost whisked my plate away! “You’re done so can I take this away for you?” I had to rescue the little bite from the hovering plate!
I was an eating machine yesterday. This meal lasted me about two hours. Then I had a protein smoothie with some cheese crackers.
And then I had some prunes.
Then I got started on dinner because I wanted to eat some more.
I’m not sure I could handle the training for and running a marathon. As much as I love to eat, I really don’t enjoy eating all. day. long. I’m serious.
Yesterday was the first roast dinner of the cooler weather season! Hooray! I made a roast chicken and it was oh so good.
There was also some mashed potatoes with chives, and roasted carrots and parsnips. I had a wing and a breast on my plate. The chicken and potatoes got topped with gravy. Yum! And then I had more chicken and mash.
Scott and I watched some ridiculous documentary on TV and sipped on some wine.
Estancia Pinot Grigio. Some of it I used to baste the roasting chicken with as well. It was a really nice light white and made for a really good sipping-on-the-couch wine. Then I had a big bowl of SO Delicious Peanut Butter Chocolate ice cream and around 10:30, I couldn’t keep my eyes open any longer so I hightailed it to bed.
Did you all have a great weekend? Any fab eats?
