Guys. I am so freaking tired. It’s Sunday night as I type this up, and I’ve been worn out since I woke up. The curse of being an early riser is I wake up at 5:30 on my days off, tired but not sleepy. I am beyond ready for bed, so we’re not going to get too verbose for the last day of my full week of eating! Tomorrow I’ll write a little more about the week and the point behind all of it. It was fun for me to do, and I hope you enjoyed reading it!
Breakfast: I ate this at 6am since I knew I wanted to run sometime in the morning, and we wanted to take Chloe to the vet mid-morning, so I decided to get the day started early. I had a Luna bar and some cherries.
I fit in a 3 mile hilly run with just enough time to shower before taking Chloe to the vet. I just can’t stay away, even on my days off! We were concerned she has a urinary tract infection, which our vet thinks is likely.
We finished at the vet in perfect time to head up to San Francisco for the Giants game! My mom and I stopped at Anchor Brewing at The Yard (right outside the ballpark) for beers before the game. I had a mango wheat, and my mom had a barley wine beer, which I had a few sips of.
For lunch, we split a cauliflower truffle flatbread (GF) and a beet salad. 1. I love this ballpark and its food and 2. the flatbread is absolutely amazing.
For dessert, we split a Ghiradelli hot fudge sundae.
It actually ended up being dog day at the ballpark, which we were totally unaware of until we saw everyone with dogs! One year we’ll need to bring Chloe!
How was the game? Windy. Slow. Exciting. Nerve Wracking.
30 mph winds. We were getting absolutely blown to death and my hat almost took a dip in McCovey cove with a few gusts there. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced wind that strong. Walking was a struggle.
The game was pretty long for a 9 inning game, and there wasn’t a lot going on early on for us.
We broke it open and scored 9 runs during the 7th and 8th inning.
…And then came scarily close to blowing it all in the 9th.
Sounds about right for a Giants game these days.
Dinner: I wanted something lighter post-sundae, so I made a salad with deli turkey, some kind of fancy merlot cheese, salt and pepper, oil and vinegar. Baked Cheddar and Sour Cream Lays on the side. <-so good.
The sundae however did not preclude ice cream for dessert from happening. Sea salt caramel Halo Top with half a piece of chocolate chip pumpkin bread.
After dinner, I met my friend’s 8 week old Norwegian Buhund, and he is a BABE. Such a cutie.
Finally, my last snack of the day was half a brown rice cake with whipped berry cream cheese.
…and now it is most definitely bedtime for me. #grandmalife
