So last night was the Baltimore Blogger Meetup! Unfortunately Jasmine couldn’t make it 😦 She got stuck in a lot of traffic on her way and ended up having to turn around. Luckily I still get to see her on Saturday at the Lupus Walk! We’re going to lunch afterwards too, and im sooo excited! maybe throw in a little shopping too? 🙂
I walked in and found Lauren from Athleat and Rose from On a Lobster Placemat already in the restaurant. Right from the start they made me feel at ease at welcome. This was my first meet up so I was a little nervous at first. It’s so funny too, because you haven’t met these people in person before but you know so much about them! We talked all things running, blogs, jobs, food, grocery stores and chatted the whole way through. Claire and Dan from Footprints and Fingertips came as well and it was such a nice group for dinner!
sorry rose for blocking your head!
Then came time to order! I used the checklist to build my own veggie burger! The last time I came here I ordered the veggie burger off the menu and it was absolutely delicious. This time however I had to forgo the cheese so I built my own.
I checked off
- veggie burger
- classic bun
- chili pepper mayo on side
- bib lettuce
- sweet potato fries!
This came out beautifullll! I loved every bite and the chili pepper mayo added the perfect spicy touch for me. Of course I finished every last crumb 🙂 The sweet potato fries were awesome. Oh, I also had a blue moon to begin with.
This was such a fun dinner and I can’t wait to do more 🙂 It’s so nice to meet people who you have so much in common with and can seriously talk for hours without pause. It was great to meet all you guys and I hope we do it again soon!!!
Update on my dairy challenge:
I’ve decided to keep eating yogurt. When I went to the doctor about my lactose intolerance they told me htat yogurt shouldn’t really give me too much trouble. It has a small amount of lactose and has natural probiotics in it so I should be fine. What i’m really going to focus on is my cheese consumption. I think this is what gives me my most problems. I’ve cut out milk, and really the most dairy I consume comes from cheese. This is what i’m goign to limit for the 30 day period and hopefully it makes a difference in how my body feels and reacts to the meals I eat. When I think back to eating yogurt with cereal for breakfast I realize it never upset my stomach, so i’m glad I still have yogurt as an option. 30 days without cheese? can i do it? i hope soooo 🙂
Well also last night at dinner Rose told me about Mr Yogato! It’s a frozen yogurt place that is in DC that JUST opened up a location in Fells Point the other day! Right down the street from my work. You know that as soon as I went home I looked them up. I don’t think i’ll be able to go there today, but definitely next week… and i’m not sure about what flavor froyo i’m goign to get but i know my first choice of toppings! Mochi and red bean paste! ah! so asian 🙂 but this stuff is amazing and i’ve never thought to have it as a froyo topping. Don’t worry Rose, as soon as I try it i’ll give you my input! Im sure i’ll be dropping by there many many times.
This weekend is 10k weekenddd yayyy! After talking at dinner about it, i’ve gotten even more excited and pumped! I’ve heard theres lots of hills though, so i hope to bust them out. Weather forecast says rain.. but i’m hoping it holds off till the race is over! Lets hope for a nice day sunday! But saturday during the lupus walk should be absolutely gorgeous!! might even get a little tan 🙂
Have a wonderful weekend! I’ll keep you all updated!!
