Chili on a chilly day.

Posted Jun 12 2010 3:24pm

Quite the rainy  and cool day today!  Perfect day to have a warm bowl of banana custard oats.

Topped with chocolate fluff and some homemade pecan butter.  I really relished this bowl and took my time eating it.  Yay!

There is a large art show each year sponsored by the lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council (Larac) . It joins with another group and they have a big festival, so we went down to check it out.

Too bad it was rainy, but didn’t really seem to stop the crowds too much.  I would have taken more pictures of art, but most artists/craftspeople don’t like pictures taken of their wares.  I came really close to buying another pottery bowl, but what I really want is a new plate.  Instead, I just got some jelly made with beer!

The gentleman selling it kept talking about putting in on meat before grilling, but I am all the while thinking it is going to end up on my oats in the morning.  Starting the day off with beer?  Could be interesting!

Went out to lunch afterward.  O’Tooles.   It’s very sports bar-like.

I am itching to watch a football game here (come on preseason!).  I do like this place, but so many tempting (read fried) stuff on the menu.  Since it is cooler out, I decided on some chili with a side salad.

Look at all that dressing.  I did the fork dipping technique with this stuff.  I also had a few of John’s sweet potato fries.  Just cannot get them this crisp at home.

I think I did pretty good food wise here, and enjoyed it quite a bit!

Then grocery shopping and home.  I also stopped at the pet store for kitty supplies and got Pixie a refill on one of her favorite toys – Da bird .  She annihilated the last one – just loves it.

Action shot – she does move around, just so you know.

Soon it was latte time!

With some Divine mint chocolate.  Good stuff.

You know that toy pictured above for Pixie?  She just broke it…  Time to get out the super glue.  Again, cannot have nice things.

John cooked up pork burgers for dinner.  I had a toasted slice of bread with laughing cow with mine.  This was sooooo good!  Lean pork, but very moist.

I didn’t feel like any veggies tonight, so I went with the flow.

With no outside biking today due to rain, we watched the Tour de Suisse on TV:

Time trial tonight and 2nd stage tomorrow.  I’ll have to sneak some watching in during work.

Going to get some good sleep for the race tomorrow.  It’s at 9 am and the forecast is about 60 and partly cloudy.  Sounds pretty perfect to me!

Question:  Any fun activities on tap today?
