We met Mark and Maggie, and the four of us shared a cab to the Brewery.
Using my Friends of Harpoon card, I got to skip the line so I had my wristband and picked up my souvenir cup in no time.
Happy Octoberfest 2009!
The main tent and most of the outdoor space was jam packed. We pushed our way through the crowds. No one was standing in front of the German band so we moved in and spread out. It was a great time dancing to the Ooompah music.
I didn't eat a real dinner so I had an Italian sausage with peppers and onions. I only ate half of the sausage before throwing it out and finishing the bun and the vegetables.
I was cold, and Jared was Mr. Nice Guy and let me wear his jacket.
We made a cultural shift and went to Pho Republique after Octoberfest ended. The four of us split a bottle of Dreamy Clouds sake. I've tried this before and really liked it. The sake has a chewy texture and a light taste.
We split a Pu Pu Platter. I don't eat any seafood so my choices were really limited. I had one chicken potsticker, one tofu and edamame potsticker, and a rib. It was delicious and not too filling.
Miles had SO much energy when we got home. He was running and jumping and biting, one of his favorite things to do. It took a while to calm him down and I was totally ready for bed...and no alarm in the morning cuz it's the weekend.
I decided to make a fruit smoothie for breakfast.
Today's ingredients included:
- 1 cup of frozen berries
- Frozen banana
- Apple (cored)
- Black raspberry yogurt
- 1 tablespoon of blueberry flax seed
- 2 ice cubes
Omega-3 Fatty Acids are said to help prevent 2 types of strokes, breast, colon, & prostate cancer, depression & anxiety, and cardiovascular disease. It can also benefit immune function and brain activity. I am not a registered dietitian or a nutritionist, but Omega-3s seem like a good idea to me.
This smoothie was amazing! The fruit flavors blended together perfectly. The texture wasn't too thick and I drank the whole thing within a few minutes. I couldn't resist!
