A Great Day to be Alive

Reasons yesterday was awesome

1.  Finding hash browns hiding in the freezer + this new sausage from Costco
equaled breakfast inspiration

2.  Not screwing up when making omelets
Seriously, isn’t your life a little happier when they look just right?

3.  Date nights!  We took a walk by the river, then went out for dinner + a movie

4.  Giant flatbread things at dinner
This sucker was easily like two feet across.  Delicious.

5.  Hummmmmusssss.  And falafel.  And other things.  But mostly hummus and falafel.
6.  Delicious lamb and rice
There was cinnamon in there.  Cinnamon in savory things is easily one of my favorites.

7.  Baklava
In high school I had a friend whose mother would sometimes make baklava and send my friend to school with giant boxes of it to share.  I need a friend like that in Portland.

9.  The movie theater was next to a Whole Foods.  That had kombucha on tap
Where that employee is standing, those taps are kombucha.  He kept taking samples, which made it hard to get a picture without being a creeper.  But you can get a growler of it.  Crazy.

10.  The movie theater had beer.  And cheap popcorn.  (ticket+ beer + popcorn = 9.75!)

11.  While we were waiting for the movie to start, the fiance got a call.  From New Seasons.  Saying…

We won BEER from their anniversary drawing we entered a few weeks ago.
I love New Seasons. I love them extra now.

What was good in your day?

  1. I love how your fiance is eyeing that flatbread. I can’t judge. I feel like I was the same looking at that baklava

  2. WHAT?! You were in my ‘hood and you didn’t call me? I’m seriously 2 minutes away from Laurelhurst. I haven’t been since they remodeled the joint – hopefully you enjoyed it!

  3. I love hummus and falafel. We don’t have any good greek places like that around here unfortunately so I don’t eat it nearly as often as I’d like. Boo.

    Also congrats on the beer winnings again!

    Andy and I went to a churrasco on Saturday and Andy was ultra excited. It was entertaining, to say the least.
