Thousands lined 4th Avenue from The Seattle Center to Qwest Field and we found a spot on Washington that saw a lot of action from the 100 groups of participants that had come from from all over the Pacific Northwest.
Just spent a day in Oregon wine country with Mike Thomas of Wine Tours Northwest who did an excellent job of showing the “fearsome five-some” – we were on a bachelor party weekend out of Portland – over 7 wineries in a day!
Had lunch at the Carnegie Deli in New York a couple of months ago. I know it’s a famous sandwich joint, but honestly! Look at the size of what I ordered. All the sarnies they were serving were that big too!
I’m learning to get two meals out of each order. One at lunch/dinner, and the next day having the left-overs for lunch. I’m also walking to work in the mornings as I’ve put on 10 pounds since arriving 3 months ago. The stroll takes 40 minutes and I’m loving it so far as it hasn’t rained on me – which is odd for Seattle!
It does depress me how much food gets wasted over here though. I love the quality of the grub and the service, but is there really any need for such HUGE portions??
And how many gherkins (pickles) can one man eat. Do they stick them back in the jar after we’ve left the table??
