When I first started blogging, I didn’t intend on every other entry to be about food. It seems like I check out a new restaurant almost twice a week, which doesn’t seem like much, but it’s definitely starting to take a toll on my wallet… and my waistline. haha!
On our latest trip, my friends and I checked out a popular Taphouse on the east side. Look at that selection of beers on tap! Sadly, I couldn’t enjoy a cold beverage from the tap with my lunch because of the activity planned for later in the afternoon. Drinks aside, the food was delicious!
I decided on garlic chicken penne smothered in cheese, paired with a tortilla soup. I can’t say that this was the best penne I’ve ever had (the cheese was a little too strong for my liking), but the tortilla soup was soooo good. It was a clear broth with avocado, sour cream, and a handful of tortilla chips. I don’t think I’ve ever had anything quite like it.
Everyone else’s food looked really good, too!
So the reason I couldn’t enjoy a drink with my lunch is because we ended up at a shooting range. I can’t say I was super excited to shoot pistols, but because we don’t have anything like this in Canada, I was intrigued.
We started off with a 22mm pistol and shot a few rounds. After we got bored of that, we moved on to a 9mm baretta. I had no idea that the recoil from one size to the next could be so drastic! I knew that it would feel different, but not that different. Still a fun experience, nonetheless.
I’m not sure if you can tell in the photos, but I’m wearing a dress. Yes, I wore a dress to a shooting range. Sigh. haha It was almost as ridiculous as the time I wore flats, a dress shirt and jogging pants to a mini-hike. I need to plan my outfits a little better… : P
