Mellow Out

3 Dec

Happy friggin Friday! I am so glad this week is over….mostly because next week will be the last five-day work week of the year for me. Thank God for saving vacation days until December.  Having a two, three and four-day work week for the rest of the year is like the light at the end of the tunnel for me right now. It’s something to look forward to to say the least.

Today was a day of good eats. It started with Chick Fil A. I saw that this month’s coupon was for  free  3 piece order of Chicken Mini’s or a medium order of Waffle Fries and since I had no breakfast in hand, Mini’s it was!

Hello my mini loves, get in my belly.

This morning flew by thanks to some busy work and a meeting that lasted longer then planned which was fine with me. The last thing I want is for Fridays to drag on. I also forgot my lunch and wasn’t in the mood for anything in particular. I was craving Chinese food all week but since I got some yesterday I didn’t want to go into MSG overload. I had a few odds and ends to pick up which brought me to Harris Teeter for lunch. On Fridays all of their foot long subs are only $3.99 so I walked over and got a foot long Chicken Breast Sub with provolone, banana pepper, black olives, tomato and lettuce. I always get this with their chipotle mayo which is out of this world and adds some extra zing to an ordinary sandwich.

Supposedly it’s going to flurry tomorrow night in Charlotte! Can I get a holla? This is very exciting news. I love that it’s actually starting to feel like winter our as opposed to last month when it was fall but still 70 degrees, not cool weather gods. I’m doing my best to stay bundled up but may need to put Lincoln in his sweater sooner than I thought.

Tonight was a blast from the past. Mellow Mushroom opened up a few months ago in Charlotte after closing down their locations a few years ago. The Mellow is one of my favorite pizza places to go to, it’s psychedelic, colorful and they have amazing pies. I haven’t been to one since my visit over Memorial Day wknd so a visit was long overdue.

Look at all the beer they have on tap! Or I guess you could look at the kid….at the bar…..with a beer.

To this day, I love menus with pictures. Eccentric pictures are even better.

After mulling through the menu items, I wanted to try something different, I really did. But the Magical Mystery Tour always calls my name.

And yet again, it didn’t fail me and still have some for leftovers. Job very well done Mellow Mushroom.

On an unrelated note…..

Umm, is anyone else excited for this? I am a sucker for chest hair so I will be most definitely be watching this show.

Stay tuned for an extra special post tomorrow!!!
