Now I am not saying this was a bad idea, just not one of my shining moments, lol.
So you know I have given lots of lip service to not "overbooking"....no, seriously, sometimes I tried.
Just not today. I tried to see everything I could. Which mind you, was not a lot. I am slow, I am easily winded, I have a depth perception problem. LOL, I'm blind in one....no, I'm kidding. But I did push it. So at 2:30 I came back to regroup. I washed my face....brushed my teeth.....took a pain pill.
Then I went up to the Reading Terminal Market. It's on the list of "must see" things in Philly. And some people had made some suggestions on lunch, which I never got to, it ended up being dinner.
So, what was the bad idea part? Going into a place that sells treats when you're high. I mean it's not like I am tripping....but let's be honest - I will need to look in my nifty Route 66 tote (that I got in LA w/Stella when she took us on our tour) to see what I bought. But whatever it is, 90% of it is not good for me.
I was advised that after a Cheesesteak, the next most famous Philly sandwich was a DiNic's Italian-style roast pork. Sadly, they were out, so I got the second choice, pork w/cheese & greens (broccoli rabe). It was good but more than I could finish.
Next.....Flying Monkeys for a lavender cupcake....sorry, that's a spring time thing.
Beilers for sticky buns. These are carefully packaged, so I will bring them back to Boston
Miller's Twist for a pretzel - got distracted and ordered sugared pretzel sticks....mmmm
Bread from Metropolitan....and a pleasant conversation with the woman working the counter. We discussed the millet muffin that she offered me a sample of. I asked if that wasn't what they fed birds....well yes, yes it is, lol. Strangely, it was good. And the chocolate cake was unbelievable, but I did manage to resist that.
Besides...I had cannoli from Termini Brothers, lol.
I have a stomach ache just thinking about all of this!
