I woke up really late yesterday because I tossed and turned most of the night. By the time I woke up I was really hungry. I knew that it would take some time to get our things together and out for breakfast so I had a bora bora bar to hold me over. It is a fruit and nut bar very similar to a KIND bar only smaller. Along with the bar, I had some coffee with whole milk. I normally drink coffee black but the hotel coffee was vile.
Once packed and ready to go, we made our way to another place that I can’t get at home. Bojangles. The height of crap food but oh so good, on occasion anyway. I had a chicken biscuit, fries and a sweet tea. Because of the bar and coffee earlier, I wasn’t actually very hungry and ended up giving most of my breakfast to the dear husband. The biscuit was also a bit overdone so the taste wasn’t quite what I was looking for.
Once our bellies were full, we headed back to VA. Once home, I did some housework and then made a pot of lentil soup for lunch. I used Jenna’s recipe as a starting point, made a few adjustments according to what I had on hand and it turned out great. My changes were very minor, the major one being that I used broth instead of water to cook the lentils and then I finished cooking the lentils in the stew. The dear husband and I both really liked it!
We had it with a slice of this lovely bread from our trip to the Farmer’s Market on Saturday.
After lunch, we kind of laid around a and watched tv for a bit. Once his food was settled, the dear husband went out for his long run. I took advantage of the alone time by doing a 55 minute yoga dvd and then spending some time in blogland. I also had some of this chocolate bar.
Just before he returned, I starting making dinner. I made chicken cacciatore with some local peppers, an onion, mushrooms and marinara sauce. I served it over brown rice and topped it with parmesan cheese. It was very tasty and so easy to make.
After dinner, we shared the raspberry tart we bought from the Farmer’s Market. It was so good but would have been better topped with a little vanilla ice cream. After dessert, we just hung out with the television and then turned in. It was a lovely weekend.
