Lunch: two eggs scrambled with cheddar, yogurt-covered Goji berries. Not a huge fan of the Goji berries.
Dinner: So, I took the Metro to Foggy Bottom to meet my husband for dinner before going to the symphony (are we grownups or what?). The plan was to meet at this trendy burger joint called Burger, Tap & Shake but it was too crowded with youngsters to get a table, so we went next door to their fancy-dancy partner restaurant District Commons where we could sit down (as it turned out, in the bar, at a high-top table) like the grownups that we are. We paid a lot of money ($77, more than the symphony tickets cost) for this highly mediocre experience... and we drank only water. My husband paid $27 for a plate that had a really crappy, though large, steak on it, plus regular old burger-style french fries that were fine and a little pile of baby greens, and I paid $28 for short ribs that were okay, but perched on a pile of something that was billed as carrot grits, mushrooms, and fried spinach (sounds good, right?) but had conglomerated into a kind of generic glop. I racked my brain to figure out what the taste reminded me of, but it didn't come to me until this morning: Campbell's Chunky Steak & Potato soup. I used to love that stuff as a child, but I don't love it as much now. Now, I'm not saying this restaurant's short rib sauce came from a can; I don't believe that it did. I'm just saying it might as well have, and that I'm annoyed to have paid $77 to sit at a bar table that they didn't even bother to wipe down and eat a completely unremarkable meal in about 30 minutes total, including cooking time (seriously? Maybe it did come from a can...).
Snacks: 4 cups of coffee, 2 regular, 2 decaf, with half and half. That's it, hooray!
