Hello friends!! First and foremost I want to say I’m behind on all of y’all’s blogs. But I will be catching up when I get home tonight. So expect to see me popping up in your comments sections again soon :)
So I left you off at breakfast yesterday. I was feeling kind of icky after my two whole drinks that got me almost drunk. There’s a reason why they call it a cheap drunk – I spend less money on booze! :P
I had something to soak up the liquor.
Two pieces of fresh baked whole wheat toast, soft-cooked eggs, mini plums. I’ve been buying diet bread for too long, this bakery stuff was glorious. I was raving about it all day yesterday!
Chris actually came up with the idea for his breakfast, I was quite impressed by his creativity!
Bruschetta omelette with onion and cheddar cheese. Doesn’t that sound awesome? It’s a three-egg omelette smothered in cheese and buttered toast. I called this his “man breakfast.” But something was missing…
Thaaat’s better. A breakfast beer :P
Then it was off to my Nana’s for more visiting. We came home for a pre-bike ride lunch.
I picked up one of those roasted chickens from the grocery store, and mixed the white meat with hummus and onions. Then topped it with sliced tomato, spinach and sprouts on more of that glorious bread. It was delicious. Another instance of where mayo is not needed!
It took us a while, but Chris and I mapped out a 44km (27 mile) loop for our bike ride. Chris wanted to just hit the road and see where it took us, but I needed a plan! It was a really great ride. Awesome rolling and steep hills, which I have a hard time finding in Fredericton. I really liked biking with Chris too. He’s much faster than I, so I liked the challenge of trying to keep up with him. I pushed a little harder than I would have had I been by myself. In all, it took us 1 hour and 49 minutes.
We quickly showered when we got home and got ready for dinner. We decided on another one of my favourite Moncton restaurants, Cafe Archbald. (yes, it’s spelled incorrectly). This restaurant is known for two things crepes and thin crust pizza. So that’s what we got!
I was feeling really dizzy and nauseated from the ride, a familiar feeling I now know is from a loss of electrolytes. So I opted for one of the saltier menu items, smoked salmon crepe. “Smoked salmon, asparagus, green onion, capers, mozzarella and dijonnaise sauce.”
I asked for it light on the dijonnaise.
So good! They really did go light on the dijonnaise, I could taste it only faintly. The salmon was quality, and the crepe itself was obviously delicious. I immediately felt better once I finished it too. The salty smoked salmon did the trick!
Chris got the All American pizza with Caesar salad.
I’m pretty sure the pizza was just green pepper, mushroom, green onion and pepperoni. He said it was good :)
Afterwards though, our tummies still had some room. And how do you go to a crepe place and not get a dessert crepe?
We went back and forth a lot on what kind to get. Chris didn’t really want anything fruity, and we both wanted chocolate. So we opted to split a brownies crepe. “Brownies, chocolate, caramel, nuts and ice cream.”
Oh. My. Gosh.
I’ll put it this way. Afterwards, I told Chris this crepe was my favourite part of our vacay. It was stuffed with warm, gooey brownies. The caramel sauce was perfection, I even thought the ice cream was delicious!
Happy bellies again :)
We had a pretty low-key night last night. My mom came home from the cottage, so we hung out with her and hit the hay early. I actually just got in from a morning 5k run, but I’ll save that all for my next post ;) Chris and I are spending the day shopping then heading back home after supper tonight.
Hope you’re having a great start to the week!
Question of the day: What’s your favourite dessert? Mine is probably plain cheesecake, but I’m sucker for brownies and chocolate chip cookies!
