Last night I met up with a buddy for beer. His desire to watch the season-opening NFL game (who knew?) led us to Taco Mac in Virginia-Highland. Knowing its size I got there early to ensure to get an outdoor table.
Taco Mac was a bit of a cluster last night. I had two beers and a platter of guacamole, salsa, and queso with chips, but my bill came out to only $10. I knew this was wrong, but the waiter was so slow I didn’t want to wait thirty minutes for him to straighten it out. When my friend exclaimed that his two beers were $34 I realized that at least some of my purchases landed on his bill. I promised to pick up the entire tab next time, as long as we didn’t meet up for filet mignon.
I have yet to be disappointed with my altered food lifestyle, at least until last night. You’d think my disappointment would have occurred at Taco Mac by passing on meats, but that wasn’t the case. It occurred when I arrived home an dug into the bowl of German pudding (chocolate) that I made yesterday afternoon using almond milk instead of cow’s milk. Yes, the pudding was chocolatey, but no, the pudding wasn’t very pudding-like. 😢
Hey, it’s Friday! I’m planning to meet up with Bonnie tonight for some outdoor beer drinking.
This weekend will be another low-key one for me as I continue to attempt to return to a “healthy” state of body. Sunday’s Black Sheep is in Alpharetta, so I may drive up and do a walkabout instead of trail. I have to keep getting credit for trails to keep pace with Bonnie, even if I can’t hash with her… 😉
It wasn’t until I typed today’s date that I realized that today is 9/11. Take a moment to reflect on the horrendous acts that occurred nineteen years ago, and be thankful for what you have.
Hope yours is a healthy and happy weekend.
