Monday morning we were out early to breakfast with my sister Ele and Jim, our friend from Washington. One of Jim’s favorite breakfast places is the Hollywood Cafe, so that’s where we headed. I must say, I’m feeling off track since this weekend so I figured I’d do best with oatmeal.
It was good, but I like it with cinnamon which they didn’t have. I think I need to start carrying some with me. I felt better than if I’d had something else for breakfast.
After breakfast, I had plans to go shopping with Gail and Alice. We had to stop to get cat food for Gail’s cat. I found a kitten that I would love to get, but no kitties for me until we get settled in New Mexico. 😦 This one was so cute, though.
Gail has been having trouble with grinding her teeth and her doctor suggested she chew gum. As we were leaving Target we noticed that there were a lot of really “interesting” Extra gum flavors available now. Apple pie and mint chocolate chip were the two that Gail bought. We tried them. The mint chocolate chip was not too good, but we all decided we liked the apple pie. It felt like a Seinfeld episode, 3 of us driving in the car, passing gum around and spitting it out to try a new flavor. Hmmm…guess you had to be there.
Of course, no shopping trip with the Girls is complete without a trip to a thrift store. Did I find a treasure? Yes!!
I got these 2 little crocks for $1 each! They’ll be great for soup or chili or as Gail said at least 3 times, French Onion soup!
Dinner was quick and predictable…
Baby greens, romaine, Roma tomato, red bell pepper, black beans, quinoa and shredded cheddar cheese. Topped off with leftover balsamic vinaigrette from my Sunday night salad.
Very good. Kept me satisfied all night, which is important.
Just so you don’t forget that it’s Fall, here are a few more foliage photos.
