Computer Mine Pittsburgh Trip Eats

Last week I was in Pittsburgh with Lowell and New Chris on a work trip to install computers in a customer’s office. The office’s office manager just completely spoiled us with constantly hosting us for dinner, bringing us food, and taking us to fantastic restaurants.

While this isn’t a foodie blog by any stretch of the animation, despite all the tenderloin posts, it is in the Bennett DNA to photograph pictures of our food. So I thought I would share some cruddy cell phone pictures of most of the foods I ate last week:

A Valentine’s gift from the Computer Mine when I got home.

Sorry to those who already endured my food pictures and sorry to those that haven’t and are now jealous.

I hadn’t travelled for work in at least 5 years. Don’t know that I’ll travel again for another 5 years, but I guess we’ll see.

This is your reminder that this week’s theme for THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE is HARMONY.


WEEK 337 - HARMONY
HARMONY

HARMONY! What a great theme for Year 9 of THE WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE!

But what exactly is a HARMONY image? A HARMONY image is simply a picture of at least two things that team up together perfectly. Like peanut butter and jelly. Cardinal and gold. Laurel and Hardy. Colors can also harmonize. I’m not going to go deep into color theory, but here are a few examples of colors that HARMONYze: Orange-Blue, Pink-Green, Orange-Green, Red-Green, Yellow-Purple, Blue-Yellow, Green-Magenta, Red-Cyan. Also, a HARMONY image could also relate to music as HARMONY is a very important part of music.

Happy photo harvesting!

  1. That office manager is likely the customer I miss most from my days at the computer mine. She’s just the nicest.

    That gyro looks like heaven. Did you like the suppli/arancini at the Italian restaurant? I had some in Rome – they were a unique texture.

  2. Angie,

    I’m sure you have supped with this woman on many an occasion. I have no clue what your Italian word means, so I’ll say I don’t know if I liked it, so you will have to use words that I understand. Elitist.

    The gyro was amazing! One of my favorites on the trip!

    Shirley,

    Thank you for enjoying my experiences! The pictures don’t show it, but that was a hard week of work. The food definitely helped us power through!

  3. Rice balls, you plebian!

    We’ve talked in our house many times about her over the years. She was just the nicest. I miss her a lot. We also talk about the partial owner who passed away a few years back – I know he wasn’t everyone’s favorite, but Jon and I never had an unkind word from him, and he was ALWAYS memorable.

  4. To be honest, I don’t really like Italian food that much. And I don’t like spending 30 dollars for 25 cents worth of flour. Not that I spent a dime or batted an eye when she and Lowell both ordered a 30 dollar glass of chianti. But I did enjoy my 3 dollar bottle of black cherry pop. But she is definitely my favorite customer.

    I think I know what you are talking about. The ones with cheese in them were delicious. The ones with meat in them were only so-so.

    The other guy, I really never new. But I heard he was a nice guy, just not what you wanted for the face of your company.

  5. We’d thought about doing a pasta bar for our wedding at one point, because you can spend about $30 to feed a room full of people. (It sounded horribly messy, so we didn’t.) I’m not a drinker – but definitely not wine. And super not red wine. I can think of a lot more fun ways to give myself a terrible headache and not sleep well. She’s just awesome. When M passed, she and a few others gave us the sweetest remembrance.

    Yeah, meat does not lend itself well to that mixture at all. I did pretty well with the ones in Rome, but didn’t love them and wouldn’t seek them out. (The texture was just odd to me.) Mom couldn’t make herself choke them down, so we ended up having to get her something to eat after that.

    He was a true character – but yes, not a great representative in front of customers. He was funny and lived life ferociously – but was maybe not a spokesman.
