Rained Out

by HEAB on September 6, 2011

My Chucks and I haven’t ventured out much because it has been raining non-stop for 48 hours. Ask CD, I am not a happy girl without sunshine in my life. I thrive on vitamin D. Anyway, we did brave the nasty weather for a Hood To Coast team reunion (Long live Chasing D.B. Cooper – our team name back in 2005). Thankfully, there was a screened-in porch.

There were also appetizers…

I love blue tortilla chips so much, and this was the BEST tomatillo salsa I’ve ever had. It’s made here in Nashville and sold at Whole Foods…cue the cringe from CD. I can’t seem to find a website – probably because I can’t recall the name – Toni’s or something? Anyway, I know what the jar looks like, and it will be mine.

There was a random salad contributed by me…


Spinach, almonds, chopped prunes, goat cheese, drizzle of tahini miso dressing (3 TBSP tahini, 1 tsp miso, 2 tsp maple syrup, water to thin).

There were burgers…


There was a stare down contest mediated by a fairy…


Good food. Good friends. Good times.

Happy Chuck Taylor Tuesday! :)
