Firstly, I’m sorry for the unannounced absence. I wasn’t planning on it; I was only planning on not blogging for my weekend (two weekends ago now) spent at Chicago pride, but I figured out while I wasn’t blogging that this just isn’t right for me at this time in my life. Blogging and taking pictures of my food causes me to spend way more time than I would like thinking about food. I love the blogosphere though, all you girls are amazing! So probably once I have the kind of relationship with food that I want, a healthier one, I’ll be back. And until then, I’ll post when I feel like it, but that’ll probably be pretty sporadic.
Anywho, picture catch-up time!
While in Chicago, Alex took me out to lunch at a raw restaurant, Karyn’s Fresh Corner! I got the house salad, which came with vegan cesear dressing on the side (I didn’t even have to ask for the dressing on side! I can never order salads with the dressing already mixed in.. ). I loved my meal, but Alex’s wasn’t so good. She had the raw ravioli, which ended up tasting mostly like salt and, well, salt. Ick. I would totally recommend the salad though. I don’t remember everything that was in it.. I do remember that there were candied walnuts that were AMAZING.
Ohmigod, pride was awesome! It felt great to be in a place where being gay was really celebrated. It’s not that I feel discriminated against most of time (I don’t!), but this was a completely new and bright atmosphere. It made me so happy.
I try to restrain, but we were at Whole Foods and I just couldn’t resist. I liked the Botanic No. 9 better than the Trilogy (that one was Alex’s), but the Botanic No. 7 is my favorite. I love that Alex is holding these for me to take a picture. We were at the train station and I had to get a photograph before I drank the whole thing on the way home. I think she’s more comfortable with me taking pictures of food in public than I am sometimes :p
That’s all for now. I love you all and I’ll still be
stalking reading your blogs and tweeting. Have a wonderful (WIA)Wednesday!
