From time to time, shit weeks happen and this was one of them. Just seemed like everything was either bad or blah. Boredom was extreme, but no one wants to hear about this (including myself). So…let’s move on.
UGA won their third game of the year tonight! Football is the only time that I miss having cable. Of course, I could have just gone to the game, but I’ve been feeling sick off and on all week so didn’t want to risk feeling crappy in the stadium. Been there, done that – never doing it again. I do hope to make it to Athens one of these weekends, though.
In keeping with my theme of blogging about the restaurants I eat at, let me give y’all a little update. Ate at several mediocre chains since simplicity was the name of the game. Last Friday, Jimmy and I used mobile waiters to have food delivered since we were having another poker party. Not much to choose from so we just had Outback. Then, with Jimmy out of town during the beginning of the week, I had another mobile waiters order from Maggiano’s. The good thing about Maggiano’s is that they give you enough food for at least three meals. Today I had Panera because I love Panera.
The only fun new restaurant I’ve tried recently was Stone Soup Kitchen. I had a lunch date with the bestie, Victoria, and her little man, Finn. It’s one of those sort of hole-in-the-wall places in a trendy up-and-coming neighborhood that the locals rave about. SSK concentrates on breakfast and lunch items with a full scale bakery as well. I adore breakfast food so love trying out new morning joints. I had the grit bowl which combines just about everything I love about food and eating. Basically, I’m super satisfied with throwing my favorite cheap foods into a bowl, mixing them all together, and eating like a poor college student again. It’s why I love soup so much. So the grit bowl was superb – grits, scrambled eggs, and incredibly fresh tasting tomatoes all mixed together – pretty much heaven. The grits did require a little extra salt, but the creaminess could not be beat. Plus, the dish cost less than $6. (Picture courtesy of SSK’s Facebook page)
But what about the reading, you scream! Not much happening in that department. I’m in a mini-funk. I did finish Little Bee and I’m halfway through my reread of Their Eyes Were Watching God for book club. But I haven’t read a word in over two days now. WTF, right? I’m determined to finish TEWWG in the next couple of days and to get the reading going strong again. I’m sad that I’m too busy to read IT because so many of y’all seem to be loving it and the red nose pics are just too cute.
