Good morning and happy Friday!! It’s kind of funny being on a conference schedule for work because some days of the week don’t really match up with expectations. Specifically the fact that I leave at 10am tomorrow to head to Columbus, OH for our Annual Conference and don’t come back until Tuesday evening… what weekend? Besides that though, I am looking forward to a change of scenery and the big conference is usually “fun” (I use the term loosely).
So being healthy is all about moderation, right? Right.
I went out for happy hour last night with some of my best girlfriends. We went to this cute place called Maddy’s that is in the DuPont area of DC for some drinks and appetizers.
Me and Amber:
Plus Jess, Elena, and Rachel:
I stuck with my go-to cocktail…
Vodka Soda with Lime. Times two (or three?) 😉
For snacks we shared three things… Sweet Potato Fries
With Roasted Eggplant and Truffle Creme (!!!!) dipping sauce. Heaven.
Plus the Bubba’s Southern Basket…
With fried pickles, fried mushrooms, and fried green tomatoes! (all vegetables buried under that batter!)
Last, we got a Flatbread (aka pizza)
Which had roasted eggplant spread, proscuitto, figs, caramelized onions, blue cheese, and pinenuts. We got the proscuitto on just half and I had two small pieces of the proscuitto-less flatbread. This was unreal! I have been wanting fig + gorgonzola on a pizza ever since I had a fresh fig for the first time earlier this week so this totally hit the spot.
Two Questions for today:
1. What is your favorite pizza topping?
2. What is your go-to drink if you’re at happy hour/a bar/home?
PS: I finally got around to updating the Top Recipes page last night! I also did the Food Staples page, but still have to work on the FAQ and the About Me pages… in time. 🙂
