Went to Bumbershoot today for the first time in 6 years. We left after an hour - there wasn't anyone we really wanted to see and it was really crowded. I bought the tickets a couple of weeks ago so that we could see Garbage on Friday night but TJ was too tired to go on Friday so we went today.
I had some good and bad food experiences today, but thanks to the hourlong walk we took on the Microsoft trail this morning with Peanut and the oodles of walking we did at Bumbershoot, I stayed pretty much "on plan".
First, the pumpkin old fashioned donut at Top Pot. It was good, but I still like Krispy Kreme's pumpkin donut better. I just can't seem to find a donut at Top Pot that is worth the >$1 price. Since I hadn't had lunch, it wasn't an egregious lack of self-discipline, and I ate it without guilt. Yay for me.
Then I saw a booth selling funnel cake at Bumbershoot. Funnel cake is the taste of my childhood - we'd always get it when we went to the amusement park. However, the one I got today was seriously nasty. They didn't even bother to use a funnel to drop the batter into the hot oil, so I got just a big chunk of oil-soaked batter that wasn't even crispy. Just thinking about it makes me nauseous. I ate some and threw the rest away but the damage was done.
After deciding Bumbershoot was not worth the hassle, we went to Sport, a nearby snooty sports bar for lunch. The menu is better than your usual bar menu, and each table has its own TV. TJ let me watch the Food Channel. Yay. I had an awesome flatbread pizza with spicy chicken, avocado, cilantro and salsa. That made me recover from the nasty funnel cake.
I'm coming down with a sore throat. Gotta go make some tea, and make that quiche I've been planning for this week. Hopefully I'll recover in time for tomorrow morning's ungodly early Extreme Body Makeover class. I'm already tired thinking about it. Boo.
