I haven't felt much like blogging over the holiday (I have means of posting still), but I am falling behind on my photo-posting, so here's the scoop:
Above: A few days later, Mammoth-bound in the rain... I found this fruity oatmeal at McD's... wow!
Above: Bakery in Bishop, CA. Along with their delicious homemade bread, their veggie sandwich (shown here) was truly the best veggie sandwich I've ever had. It was simple -- lettuce, tomato, alfalfa sprouts, red onion, avocado, swiss -- but grand.
Above: It was sooo snowy that chains were required, and even then, it was slippery. Thank goodness for handy "Ukrainian"s!
Above: Next stop -- Vegas. See my first-ever Vegas buffet plate. I waited in line soooo long that my hunger led me to create this monstrosity -- I ate about half of this "world on my plate" and was so full afterward.
Above: I finally found one of these places and had a pumpkin coffee. Coffee (fully caffeinated) is definitely needed in Vegas. It was cheap and WAY delicious!
Above: I admit that I got a little heavy-handed at the outlets... Those post-holiday sales are deadly.
Above: That almond bar (top right below the chocolate petit four) was memorable. I will try to find a recipe for it!
I have a surely busy year ahead, so I'm glad to be spending some time relaxing and whittling away at my youthful energy that I'm not using so well on the Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge. :(
