Almost Back to Normal


Sunday morning Michael’s family left to go home to Texas and we went out to breakfast with Jeremy. I’ve been wanting to try Hash for breakfast for a long time.

It’s a restaurant in Sellwood that seems to always have a packed restaurant. Since it was so early, we were able to get a table immediately. I got coffee and they brought scones with applesauce to the table. It was fantastic.

I wanted some eggs because it had been awhile since I had my usual breakfast. I got the omelet with Canadian Bacon, sausage, spinach and goat cheese. It was AMAZING! One of the best breakfasts I’ve had in a long time. The service was great too. I really enjoyed my experience at Hash and will definitely return to try other things.

My omelet came with fresh fruit (watermelon and blueberries) and brioche toast with freshly made raspberry jam.

I told Michael we need to recreate my omelet sometime. The crumbled Canadian Bacon and goat cheese were a fantastic combo. Originally the omelet came with truffle cheese but I asked for the goat cheese instead since I’m not a fan of mushrooms. The word “truffle” just turned me off. The goat cheese, however, went perfectly with it.

Michael got the steak, hash and poached egg dish and he said it was one of the best breakfasts he’s had in a long time too.

After breakfast I went to the pool for the first time in about a week.

It was such a wonderful, relaxing swim! I felt great in the pool and then I spent a long time in the steam room relaxing. It felt good to almost get back to “normal” after a whirlwind of house guests, trips, day trips, and lots of eating out. šŸ™‚ Jeremy is here for another week before heading back to Ireland.

I really enjoyed having Michael’s family visit. I like them a lot and always have a great time with them. Texas women definitely have a “look” and I will admit that I felt like a big, frumpy cow next to them. It was a little uncomfortable…I’m a really casual dresser. I try to be feminine and try to wear skirts and dresses when going out, but I definitely don’t have a “look”. I also feel like I’ve gained 20 pounds in the last 5 days of over-eating. NOT looking forward to the August Weigh-In.

  1. Wow that omelette sounds awesome!! I looove goat cheese, but love truffle cheese too so I couldn’t pick between ’em! šŸ™‚

  2. Mmm, looks delicious!

  3. Oh ha! You give us Texan girls too much credit. I am never put together….ever! Trust me you would feel like a rockstar next to me! šŸ™‚

  4. I know what you mean about a “look.” I’m rarely very put together or polished. I always think, “Oh I bet I would be if I were a real estate agent! I’d be ready for a glamour shot at a moment’s notice!” I’m more of an Eddie Bauer model than anything else, and that’s on a good day. PS. I don’t own matching bra and panties.

  5. I’ll bet after that walked through sand for hours and swimming, you probably will do fine at the weigh in! Best wishes:)

  6. A great breakfast + a great swim workout! Sounds wonderful and well deserved šŸ™‚
