I’ve always wanted to go to Julia’s empanadas.
Luckily, an overly-happy hour led to a dinner out, rather than dinner in!
Leah (above), Miriam (below), and I picked up some speedy empanadas from the vacant and fluorescent shop. An empanada is a delicious blend of something like a crepe, a pie, and a burrito. I got “the Chilean” which had olives, beef, raisins, and hardboiled egg. I have never been to Chile but if they actually eat these regularly I am moving there.
Miriam has actually had all of Julia’s empanadas before. She’s pretty much an expert.
An spicy empanada just wouldn’t be complete without a sweet bowl of frozen yogurt. These two food shops (I wouldn’t call either a restaurant) are located RIGHT next to each other which is a recipe for disaster (or, complete bliss).
Oh wait, did I also mention that this was fueled by alcohol as well? My friend Jessie and I had met up pre-empanada for a drink after work. We went to Agora, probably the best bar for happy hour near the north Dupont area (but not the best bar for actual dinner FYI. Example: a side of rice costs $8.)
No, it’s not the alcohol that made this picture so blurry. It’s just that my camera isn’t great. Luckily the drinks and company were though!
So basically this post makes it look like I did nada yesterday except eat crap. BUT actually that’s not true! I did go for a run. It was rainy.
This morning I headed to the gym, fueled by sugar, beef, and beer from last night. It was still rainy.
I had an intense workout inspired by Tina’s crossfit routine. The name of the blog post was “sweat to impress,” so I knew this workout was right up my alley.
Is it Wednesday already? Weeknight adventures sure do make the time fly.
