I thought it would be fitting to post Stephanie’s food diary today, since she’s leaving for Italy and adventure in about seven hours. (It’s okay to be envious of her two months abroad. You won’t be the only one feeling that way.) Buono viaggio…
Oh, and what Stephanie ate is kind of unusual because she doesn’t usually buy all of her meals out.
3.00 pm: Because it was an hour wait at Stone Park for brunch, I deliberated between the shrimp and grits and what I ultimately decided to order: scrambled eggs, short rib hash, potatoes, wheat toast with butter and apricot marmalade, two glasses of water and a Bloody Mary, garnished with a lime, celery, and the largest caper I have ever eaten.
4.00 pm: I drank a large iced coffee that didn’t quite hit the spot. There wasn’t enough ice in the cup.
4.30 pm: I ate a vegan carrot muffin with not-vegan cream cheese frosting while I sat at Prospect Park.
5.30 pm: I drank a small pot of chai tea with honey at Tea Lounge.
8.30 pm: For dinner, I ordered take-out from China One. I ate General Tso’s chicken with broccoli, pork fried rice and an eggroll.
10.30ish: For a late-night treat, I ate two rice crispy treats that Jasmine made with chocolate, cashews and a dash of curry.
