Week of Eating Like Past Michelle

The first half of last week was crazy busy, and the second half consisted of napping for several hours followed by staying up all night. It also consisted of the worst eating I've done in a while; it was interesting to revisit Past Michelle's regular eating habits, and I definitely noticed a decline in overall feelings of health and well-being as a result.

Over the course of the week I ate one and a half large Panago pizzas all by myself (Note: Peanut likes pizza too.), an entire batch of scones (more on that later), spent two nights alone with nachos, salsa and Curb Your Enthusiasm, and ate at McDonalds TWICE, eating my first Chicken McNuggets since I was a teenager. I blame the latter on the fact that I'm currently working on a project that involves a lot of fast food imagery.

I also celebrated my two-year anniversary with Jay, which ALSO consisted of nachos, and this pretty wonderful bottle of wine that I brought back from the Okanagan: a rosé called Hush (2010) by Dirty Laundry. It really lived up to my memories from the tasting. The winery, despite all its hokiness, makes a fine rosé. (See near the end of this post for more about Dirty Laundry.)

Last night's Shindig cask ale; the best by far
Oh I also made it out to SHiNDiG again, and the cask ale was R&B's East Side Bitter. Best SHiNDiG cask ale ever! I drank this earlier in the year at Eat Vancouver. It is pretty great. I need to find a bar that has this on tap, and install myself as a regular.

Today I've made a long list of vegetables to buy at the grocery store. Good riddance, Past Michelle!


  1. Hi Michelle,

    I check out your blog from time to time (and love it), and have never commented but felt compelled, as a fellow East Side Bitter fan, to do so today. I just discovered last week that Cascade on Main has it on tap and it's delicious.

    Sorry about your poor-eating relapse, but there's no denying the goodness of Panago. I probably don't have to tell you that.


  2. I'm glad that the ESB prompted you to post! :) I always wonder if anyone at all reads these.
