Yumminess from my favorite eating out place in Bend

Standard

Yumminess from my favorite eating out place in Bend. The picture doesn’t do it justice, but this dish was very sage-y and flavorful—both the tempeh and the squash were prepared just right. The tempeh here is so much better than when I prepare it at home, for some reason. {Probably because I’m not an awesome professionally trained chef.} And the sorbetto is always good—the strawberry tasted well, like fresh strawberries! It was a great place, as always, to take our out-of-town friend.

An ungodly hour

Standard

This morning, I got up at an ungodly hour for a Saturday {8 a.m.} and went with the kids and the hub down to a park to watch the kids’ mom finish running a 10k{One of those strange things blended families do.} The kids then went off to spend time with their mom until tomorrow.

I came back to the house for a little while, prepped for an ATV interview, then went to the station to meet my co-host and our out-of-town friend in order to record the interview. We had fun with that, and then spent the rest of the afternoon and evening having a leisurely lunch at Broken Top Bottle Shop and walking along Benham Falls. It was a good time.

It tired me out, though. Good thing the house is quiet tonight: I might just have to get up at an ungodly hour tomorrow morning to join the girls for breakfast. {Rough life.}

By the way, I looked for the Super Moon tonight and by the time it got up over the trees behind my house, it was unimpressive. I’ve seen much bigger and more impressive Harvest Moons before. Maybe you had to catch it right at the horizon?!
