The Husband and I were running errands, usual Monday stuff, when he turned to me and said, “How about we get an adult beverage at an outside bar we’ve never been to?”
It. was. awesome. Made my Monday that much better. We talked a lot about our upcoming vacation (we’re going somewhere tropical and warm… Oh, yeah!).
We went to a place called Kennedy’s and took advantage of the $3 for any pint special. I got a Fat Tire. Very good.
We also played one-on-one trivia (after Googling “easy trivia questions”). It was neck and neck, but I think the Husband pulled ahead with his insane sports knowledge.
Was tempted by the menu, but we came home for dinner. No need to buy a $7 veggie burger when I can make THIS:
This is a combination of steamed kale (via this method), chopped carrots, chickpeas, and groats. Groats “are the hulled grains of various cereals, such as oats, wheat, barley or buckwheat. Groats are whole grains that include the cereal germ and fiber-rich bran portion of the grain as well as the endosperm (which is the usual product of milling).” Thank you, Wikipedia.
There’s also a sauce on there that is similar to Mmm Sauce but I loaded this version up with parsley so it was bright green. I thought it was great, but I love parsley flavors.
I loved the nutty flavor of the groats – they would also be good mixed in oatmeal.
Public Service Announcement from Katie (aka Sweet Tater) + her boyfriend Stew
Are you a fan of cats? Ever feel like you just can’t get ENOUGH cats? Wish you could have a cat RIGHT NOW?
Katie continues, “Have I got a deal for you… Odelay (Ralphie’s baby, Weasel’s sister, and an heiress to the Caturday throne) is in desperate need of a home ASAP. She’s in Greenville, South Carolina. We are in panic mode trying to find a home. Stew’s parents will no longer keep her and I just cannot have three cats at the age of 25. Any takers? She is just under three years old (don’t be fooled by the old baby pics). I will deliver her from Greensville to the Charlotte area if necessary. ” Contact Katie if you’re interested!
