Here’s a tip:
If you are driving an early-nineties Geo Prizm, then a personalized plate that says “SUGRMAMA” is probably inappropriate.
(I know, it’s not the same as WTF NYC. Only one letter missing though! Unfortunately there’s not quite as much crazy down here as up in Manhattan. New Yorkers, entertain me, please!)
Today’s EAT: Oh, Southern foods. You’re so ridiculous. I’m looking at you, Pimento Cheese:
Finely shredded cheese, mayo and pimentos. (Or so I’m told: this came prepackaged from the awesome Bickett Market.) It’s like…cheese salad. Glorious.
I forced myself to stop at three loaded crackers, though. Not exactly health food, this Pimento Cheese.
For dinner, I took a crack at something I’ve been wanting to try for a while: homemade dumplings!
Those crispy little packets were filled with chicken, apple and ginger. Pretty delicious, and not bad for a first attempt at a tricky dish! I want to tweak the recipe a little more; I promise a dumpling post when I get it juuuuust right. 🙂
Today’s DRINK: When the people at POM Wonderful offered to send me some of these…
I knew I’d be making one of these:
I’m not much of a juice drinker, but shaken with some ice-cold Ketel One and a lime wedge, this POM was pretty darn enjoyable. Like a more complex version of a Cape Codder. Yum. I do love a good girly martini (chicktini?) once in a while.
Today’s RUN: Today was my last “long” run before Chicago! I kept it pretty mellow and just wandered around the neighborhoods in my area for about 90 minutes, ~10 miles.
Today’s QUESTION: What’s the most ridiculous personalized plate you’ve ever seen?
