Last night was a little bit of a let down.
I had plans to see Kings of Leon with some friends but the weather was not cooperating. Our seats were on the lawn and there was an 80% chance of storms and a hazardous weather warning. We decided to chance it anyway and drove to PNC Music Pavilion. When we arrived the sky was looking a little ominous and the temperature had dropped 20 degrees!
We went in to catch the opener, Young the Giant. I actually really like them and have listened to their music for a few years. They were good. While they were playing the lightening got pretty intense and it started to rain. We had all decided before the show that we were not going to stand in the rain (and lightening) on the lawn so we bailed. Once we made it into the car and headed to dinner the sky opened up and it poured. While I would have loved to see KOL again, I was happy with our decision.
Especially when we ended up warm and cozy with a glass of wine and this delicious spinach and artichoke gnocchi at Bistro la Bon. It was so good that we ordered a second plate.
We also shared meatballs.
And this delicious lavender chicken that was served over a pumpkin bread with a curry sauce. It was so different but really delicious.
So we made the best of the night! 🙂
In other food and eats news. Starbucks (black coffee) + a smoothie is pretty much the standard for my mornings.
Salads for lunch.
My salads have been made EXTRA awesome lately thanks to this find at Trader Joe’s. Pumpkin spiced pumpkin seeds. They are seriously amazing. Buy them if you have a Trader Joe’s nearby.
Soup and salad. This is the first time I’ve craved soup with lunch in a long time. The weather is starting to turn. 🙁
I got a little creative with this dinner. I made a basil, sundried tomato and feta turkey burger and then baked it in a portobello mushroom cap. I spread hummus on top. It was a great combination!
I retested the zucchini carrot bread recipe on Sunday and polished off half of the loaf in 2 days. It is 100% a WINNER and I’ll be sharing the recipe in the next day or two.
And finally, homemade frozen yogurt with white chocolate chips and dried cranberries and chamomile tea.
What’s the last concert you attended?
