Yeah, Yeah, and the Horse You Came In On


Before you freak out…allow me…I HAVE NOT HAD TOFU GREEN CURRY SINCE MY LAST POST! I know. Shocking and slightly disappointing. I promise to rectify that soon….

To be fair, I was gone for almost 3 days. Left Sunday afternoon and got back last night.

Home eats included grilled tofu (marinated in 50/50 lime juice and maple syrup with a big dollop of sweet chili sauce), corn, and broccoli.

I also made buffalo cauliflower. Simply – air fried cauliflower tossed in a vegan buffalo sauce. It was only ok. If I had whipped up a good batter first, then it’d been stellar. But I was feeling lazy.

So I’ve blogged before about my very favorite cidery – Buskey’s in Richmond. Well – they opened on on the Eastern Shore in Cape Charles! So – since it was on our drive to Baltimore, totally had to stop. Joy of all joys, they have a new flavor – watermelon rosemary and it was freaking divine!

We rolled into Baltimore close to 9pm, and since it was a Sunday, not much was opened. We were staying near Little Italy, so grabbed some eats – which turned out to be awesome – at a place called Amicci’s.

The next morning was a veggie sammich, hash browns, and fruit. Hate to say – got sick after. Not sure if it was intense lack of sleep, me not used to having much other than a smoothie in the morning, or something else – but it did not stay down long. Was fine shortly after, but still. Ugh.

Monday night I went to a baseball game – and they had vegan hot dogs and dumplings! I was so excited…

Before heading home after the conference stopped at a place called Honeygrow. Think Chipotle, but with a Noodles and Company flair. I had rice noodles with tofu, veggies, and a sweet soy sauce. Really yummy.


Well, my 90 minute spin-a-thon, while awesome, meant I wasn’t getting on that bike again for a couple days.

Enter kickboxing. Always a fav!


Well, it was off to another conference the early part of this week. Only 2 1/2 days though. It was pretty good. It’s a young conference, so it’ll build with time I think. The most interesting was a session regarding the opioid epidemic that included healthcare leaders, but also DEA and other law enforcement. I see a real opportunity for data sharing where technology can be a real asset to combat this horrifying plague. Will explore more in the coming weeks!

While in Baltimore, we went to a baseball game. Yankees v Orioles. One of my good friends is a lifelong Yankees fan, but I was really hoping for the home team. They got slaughtered. It was a double header, and while the Orioles won the first one, they got hammered the second. It was kinda sad.

On a fun note, I haven’t been to a professional game since I was a little girl growing up in Milwaukee!

After, our host took us out and about, and a night of dancing, singing, and drinking followed. It was a blast, actually.

The only other highlight was narrowing down the few flooring for my house between 2 options. My guy is going to do some research to see if there’s a clear reason to pick one over the other. Otherwise – the weekend of August 4th means new floors in my house!! SO excited!
