Caw! Went the Chocolate Lobster.Posted: August 21, 2009
Oh what a beautiful day!
I got to go to Kent, CT! Yay! Where my high school was and hang out with mama.
We started the day off with Nature’s Path flax flakes, that my mom got for me :), vanilla stoneyfield, bare naked granola, peach and blueberries.
I also had some grapefruit guice and coffee. Check out the morning glories that opened while we were eating!
After breakfast we were off to get my emissions checked and then off to Kent! p.s. Ayche passed with flying colors!
I love my high school! How do you remember yours?
Mom walking along the path outside my dorm freshman year.
So apparently The Ravens were all over Kent today?!?!!?! Check out all Ravens I found today!
That is a lot of Raven! My mom saw a doormat from the road, but we didn’t stop.
For lunch we went to the Blu Grill aka the nicest place in town. Our beloved bakery has closed down in the poor economic times 😦
I got the open faced cuban with pulled pork, ham, pickle and cheese. It also came with a side salad.
A bit too much mayo-sauce, but otherwise very tasty. I also had a bite of my mom’s portabello burger with peppers fresh mozzarella and summer squashes.
For dessert we had to head to Kent Coffee and Chocolate, which is actually owned by my high school bf’s aunt.
After about 20min of trying to figure out what to get, I settled on a nutella cup and a dark chocolate graham. I put mom’s frozen cap in the pic too!
After chocolate we went for a walk down by the Housatonic River that runs right along the banks of my school.
Around 2 we bid farewell to Kent and headed home just in time for a giant t-storm to pass through. We stopped by Whole Foods to pick up some dinner supplies on the way and I saw these!
Quail, Ostrich and duck eggs! Crazy!
Once the rain had passed I set off on a run that I thought was going to be about a 10k, but it got really messed up so I ended up running for 55min so I am guessing 6miles +. I felt really good the whole time so I was excited about that!
People were coming over for dinner so I drank some coconut water to rehydrate and hopped in the shower.
So what I had to do next was really inhumane is some people’s opinion, but having worked in a fish market I found nothing wrong with it. I won’t show you all the details, but lets just say I had to chop live lobsters in half and rip their arms off. Mom couldn’t watch.
Sorry for the blur….while these cooked on the grill I munched on some figs + goat cheese along with some chips and guac. I also had a glass of Rose that was being passed around.
For our sweet end, my mom’s friend Dean chopped up a fresh pineapple and I coated mine in dark chocolate syrup.
Tomorrow I am tackling re-packing everything for the new apt that we have in the basement. Bah! No fun!
Wow my home posts are so much longer than normal ones!
Do you find that you do more cool things when you travel home?
