my weekend in food consumption

After such a beautiful weekend, this dreary Monday is making it hard to be back at work. On Saturday, I took the laptop out to lunch at Mexican restaurant with sidewalk dining to enjoy sunshine, nachos and beer, but it was a working lunch, I got a new short scene written and part of a second. Then, after some tv and napping, I met up with friends for dinner and a concert. At Zot, I decided to eat only things that hop, so I had fried frog legs followed by kangaroo in green peppercorn sauce, washed down by a bottle of Victory Hop Devil (and a couple giant martinis). After dinner, we went to see Lily Allen, who was great and hopped, but all sang too briefly. Since she only has the two albums, I really expected to hear more from the first.

Then on Sunday, I decided to eat nothing but kid food all day. I made some waffles, then we did some shopping at the Italian Market, where I bought some cherry extract that I'm going to use in making lemon cupcakes with cherry icing for K's birthday. Once back, we whisked off to the Wissahickon, where I ate hot dogs and orange soda from the snack stand at Valley Green and then we went for an excellent hike, wherein we discovered that everybody on one side of the river kept to themselves and everybody on the other side was super friendly. And then we came home and had sloppy joes while catching up on old episodes of Kings.
