WIAW

Cool stuff from the past week:

* Black Sabbath concert...for a bunch of old dudes, they still sound freakin' amazing!

* I ran the Spartan Sprint with a bunch of Crossfit friends!


* Breaking Bad is back! Only a handful of episodes left until its totally over, wahhh.

* And...I took more food - and beer, of course, right Jessie? ;) - photos to share with you all for this week's What I Ate Wednesday!

 

One morning I was bummed out because I didn't have any bacon for breakfast. Luckily, I had this cheese so all was well in the world. This is some seriously amazing stuff!

What did the girl melon say to the boy melon after he proposed?
We're too young, we cantaloupe!


Grillin' with some chicken and zucchini and chillin' with some cukes. Easy.


As I predicted in my post last week, a soup was indeed happening. Used up the broth I made by tossing in a bunch of diced up veggies and chicken for a quickie soup. It turned out pretty well but a big scoop of pesto really took it over the top.


Best. Pizza. Ever. Mashed potato and bacon pizza from BAR in New Haven, CT. Thanks for sharing, babe! :)
Speaking of bests ever, this burger was right up there! From The Abbey in Providence, RI, its called the Couch Potato and topped with pulled pork, blue cheese, thick cut chips, caramelized onions, and mayo. Re-freakin-diculously good.

Its not too early to pumpkinize things, is it? Because it already happened with these chocolate pumpkin brownies. My "To Cook" pumpkin-flavored list is growing by the minute...
And onto the beers!

Found this little sixer and it immediately jumped into my hands. While I had high hopes for the Strawberry Lager (which didn't pan out), the Beer Flower Wheat was excellent!

Yum!

 Drinking a Hefeweizen in the shadow of the brewing room at Trinity in Providence.
Have a great week everyone!

  4. Mashed potato and bacon pizza?! Now that sounds interesting! I think a vegetarian version with tempeh bacon or fake bacon bits needs to happen. ;)
    And oh my goodness Cabot makes the BEST cheese! I love their garlic cheese. To. die. for. Though I think I would say that about most any cheese. :P

    1. Urgh. Finally! Blogger just hates me this week. It seriously won't let me comment on anyone's posts. :P

      I tried yesterday on here and it failed so I left up the tab to try again :) Haha.

      Anywho--- I've never heard of putting mashed potatoes on pizza before! (at least that's how I read it? :) ) I bet that's really good.

      And those brownies look fantastic.

    2. Woo hoo, it worked - it is totally frustrating when blogger acts up!

      Yep, you read right. :) It is a surprisingly awesome combo!! Carbs on carbs!

  10. I love adding pumpkin puree to brownie mix—the texture comes out so well that way! Also, um, love that cheese with bacon in it exists.
