After church and visiting with a college friend (!), Matt and I drove over to Chapel Hill for lunch. We went to one of my favorite sandwich places, Foster’s Market. Chapel Hill just has so many cute restaurants!
I got an incredible Cuban, which was massive and meaty. I had to hand some of it over to Matt, who was very appreciative.
Look what we found at Weaver Street Market…soy-free chocolate!!!! I broke right into this caramel crunch chocolate bar and it tasted amazing. I’m not actually a huge chocolate person, but I think I’ve been craving it just because I haven’t been able to have it.
We headed over to Tar Heel territory for a beer and some football. This was a Big Boss autumn ale and it was quite spicy. One of the best parts about going home is drinking local beers that I haven’t tried before. And, the fact that this beer was only $4 was pretty awesome too.
I found this depiction of Coach K humorous…I mean he is a blue devil so it’s not too far from the truth…
We returned to find a home-cooked meal complete with organic wine!
One of my childhood favorites: bbq chicken and rice with beer bread!
This dinner tasted soo good! Unfortunately, I was curled up in bed with a horrific stomach ache 30 minutes after finishing. My mom didn’t question her made-from-scratch sauce and we figured out there was soy in it (in the form of worcestershire sauce). I’m wondering if that was the culprit? Regardless, I spent about 3 hours writhing in pain before I finally fell asleep – not how I wanted to spend my last night at home. I had to get up at 5:45 this morning to pack and get to the airport:(
Despite the ending, it was an awesome day. When I get back to Boston, I plan on grocery shopping, exercising, and maybe working on a report. Happy Columbus day!
