STL...it was the best-worst of times this weekend.
I held restraint at the Melting Pot on a four-course fondue journey that eneded in a flombe of dark chocolate, pecans, caramel with cheesecake, brownies, and other dippable goodies. I'm sticking to the belief that dark chocolate is healthy, for the moment.
There were other indulgences...
Taro pudding tea with tapioca bubbles? Yep. Can't put a lable on that one just yet, unless anyone else is knowledgeable in that area of cuisine. Tasty little goobery drink, though.
Breakfast yesterday morning was somewhat a loss. Continental breakfast at the Holiday Inn Express didn't allot for much more than starch and milk.
Made a trip to the World Market at I170 and hwy 40 that afternoon, followed by Trader Joes. Oh, it was so nice, and alway is, getting to pick little delicacies out from the shelves at the WM. We came home with canned pork liver pate from France (saving for the holidays...if I can hold off), red bean potato/rice balls from Taiwan (YUM), orange blossom honey from Germany, and Lemon curd from Scotland. We picked up some kind of holiday bread that is now in the freezer (it may be a Jewish traditional bread, but it will be a fun addition to xmas dinner this year), and a blueberry glazed goat cheese that sounded too exciting to pass up.
Today's event is going to be an oil change for the baby mobile and then off to Edwardsville for another hunt of a more larger booty of goodies. Any ideas, Lisa?
Weight: haven't checked...
Overal, not feeling too bad today...gonna make the most of it.
