Sunrise, Sunset, Cork

Posted on October 25, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized |

I started my morning off yesterday with a longer ran than I usually do before work.  It was great to be out there running, the only downfall was I didn’t give myself enough time for my legs to recover.  So when I got to work, I sat at my desk for the first hour icing my hamstring and calf.

The other bonus to waking up early is getting to see a lovely sunrise!

To complete the day I tried to capture a picture of the sun setting as I was leaving work.   You can see the most amazing colors through these trees – and the colors are concentrated right there.  This picture does it no justice, but I appreciate it each time I see it!

Last night, I headed to 14th Street for a dinner date with my sister at Cork.  I hadn’t been in several months, but long for the avocado pistachio toast.  It’s so amazing, it has just the right amount of avocado and pistachio and the bread is grilled to just the right amount of crispiness with a tough of burnt.  We only got one order (2 pieces each) but I considered ordering another one just so I could have a few more!

We also had hamachi with ruby red grapefruit:

biscuits with pork rillettes:

sheep’s ricotta gnudi with mushrooms.

I did not know what gnudi was when we ordered, it was basically a mixture of pasta and mashed potatoes.  When I googled gnudi today it said it was very similar to gnocchi – which makes perfect sense.  This might have been my favorite dish (besides the avocado)!

I didn’t take photos of the avocado (we ate it too quickly), the short ribs or the arugula salad – all quite good!

It was a lovely evening with fantastic food, drinks and catching up with my sister!   I’m kind of ready to go back to Cork like right now for some more!
