I may have forgotten to mention I’m in Vegas this week.
You see, I was under the misguided impression I’d be able to keep the blog up and running seamlessly, a laughable concept in hindsight. Believe me, I see the error of my ways. To set the record straight, I’m here for a work conference so it’s strictly business, excluding a little pool action.
It’s 100 plus degrees here in June, so can you blame me? Of course not. It’s also why I have to eat and run today. Work calls, and those clear blue waters are beckoning in the background; or maybe it’s the other way around. ‘Eh, you get the idea.
Happy What I Ate Wednesday.
I give you my Tuesday eats in Vegas.
First breakfast was coffee and water in the hotel room with a side of blogging. I’m still hoping to get a full blown post up on Friday. No promises though.
A more substantial breakfast was provided through the work conference. I had fresh fruit and orange juice, followed by asparagus, potatoes, roasted cauliflower and scrambled eggs.
In all honestly, I’ve been spoiled with my local farm fresh eggs, and these powdery half-cooked imitations were not up to my standards, so I only had a couple bites before opting out altogether. I rather enjoyed my asparagus though.
Dessert was some kind of vanilla bean custard with fresh fruit. I would have licked the glass clean if I wasn’t in public or if they hadn’t taken it away from me.
I did bring snacks with me on this trip and sure enough they came in handy. I ate an apple with a spoonful of peanut butter and some of my own homemade Banana Bread Granola.
Dinner was my favorite meal because I got to spend it with my in-laws who reside full-time in Vegas. We had white wine and a cheese platter, alongside roasted veggies and orzo in a lemon Dijon vinaigrette.
It’s safe to say I won’t be going hungry anytime soon in Vegas. I do hope to squeeze in some more pool time though and maybe a berry mojito. I hear they’re good here.
Have you ever been to Vegas? If so, what’s your favorite memory?
