Thursday Thoughts

Last Sunday we had brunch at Meat & Potatoes for the first time. It was tasty, as expected, and it was fun to finally see the Bloody Mary Bar. SP's was a very conservative creation. Many people came back with elaborate garnishes atop their drink, basically blocking drinking until the garnishes were eaten. Here's what we ate:
  • Mimosa for me, Bacon Vodka Bloody Mary for SP
  • Breakfast Americano (two eggs / bacon / sausage / home fries / grilled bread)
  • Omelette of the Day (english pea / asparagus / swiss cheese / mushrooms)
Definitely some of the fluffiest eggs we've ever eaten. Excellent sausage. Wonderful potatoes, nice & creamy inside.

After brunch, we stopped to buy a hot tea then walked up to Market Square and then PPG for a while. It was a blast watching the kids run through the fountain! Oh my gosh, to be that young and carefree again. All I could think was, ugh, I'd hate for my shoes to be that wet, to sit around in wet underwear, and also, ugh, small kids please stop drinking the water! I'd be no fun mom. Good thing I don't have kids!

After that, we went to see Once at the Benedum. The last time Once was in town, I couldn't go because I had a fever, was shaking, could barely talk, and was going through a box of tissues a day. I made SP go without me so we only "wasted" one ticket. I really liked the movie, and the show did not disappoint. The music is so beautiful, and one song in particular always makes me a little teary.

What We're Eating:
  • Lamb Burgers
  • Pasta & Red Sauce (from the freezer) with grilled zucchini mixed in
  • Dessert: Pizzelle
What We're Watching:
  • We watched Shazam, which was a much better movie than I expected.
  • We also watched Vice, which made me mad at our government.
  • We're continuing to watch season 7 of OITNB.
  • There are new seasons of Worst Cooks and Worst Bakers on Food Network, so we're watching those.
  • Marvel's Agents of SHIELD ended and it was a pretty good season. As in, I enjoyed it more than the last couple seasons. So we'll see how the final season is next year, I guess, is when it comes out.
  • I'm enjoying Animal Kingdom a lot. We finally found out what happened to Colin. Everything going on with Jay-Pope-Angela. Deran "handling " the Adrian situation. Craig being a dad.
What I'm Reading:
I read The Never Game by Jeffrey Deaver. It was my first time reading Deaver. I'm surprised I haven't read any of his books. I like that this book was a new character for the author. I couldn't put it down, so I guess it was a good read!
