Hey guys. How was everyones weekend? Mine was great and it FLEW by! Jasons birthday was yesterday, and it was a great day! I didn't take too many pictures over the weekend, as I didn't have it on me at all times (bad blogger, I know) but I do have a good amount!
Saturday, we went to a new BJ's that just opened. They were giving out crazy samples, and I am not talking about pieces of cookies and ice cream. I mean they were walking around handing out bacon wrapped scallops, Milk and warm cookies, shrimp toasts...it was quite the gathering! It was PACKED and we were going a bit people crazy, so we got what we needed and got out of there! We went to a local fruit and veggie market called Russos and made glorious salads at their fabulous salad bar. The salads are $4.98 a lb! Whole foods is about $10 a lb! This has romaine, broc, red pepper, mushrooms, carrots, turkey, corn, roasted veggies and red onion. It was. GOOOD
Yesterday morning we went to one of our new and favorite breakfast joints close to us called In A Pickle. This restaurant ALWAYS has a line out the door and is famous for their crazy pancakes! (see picture above)
Started with coffee
The WHOLE menu is written up on the board
Jason's favorite thing in the whole world is belgium waffles and this is called the "Loaded Waffle" it is a thick, light and crispy waffle with blueberries, strawberries, bananas, whipped cream. I wanted to put a candle in it for his birthday!
He has always tried to recreate his speciality....see? (not as pretty as the one from the restaurant, but just as good!)
I got the eggwhite omelet with mushrooms, brocolli and tomatoes, (hashbrowns and toast for Jason)
Because I also got oatmeal instead of the toast and homefries! WIth blueberries. Yum
I added cinnamon and...
some sugar free chemicals. It was gooooood
That buttered toast did look good too! But I didn't need all that food.
We had to do some errands in the mall in the afternoon, so I took Jason back to 40 carrots (that I went with my mom on Friday) because it was So good! I got the same 40 carrots chopped salad.
For dinner we were both lazy and the only thing J wanted was some comfort food. We decided to order take out from a local restaurant that has everything CHICKEN you can think of! It is called Chicken Express. He ordered a 1/4 white meat chicken on the bone with corn, butternut squash and corn bread. I ordered chicken kebabs with veggies and 3 bean salad. This was the first time ordering from this restaurant, but we stored it in our phones. It was delicious!
This morning was some protein oats (sun warrior protein powder, banana, blueberries, 1/2 C oats cooked in water) AFTER Insanity. Week 2 of Month 2. Love it and love my shoes. My feet and knees are thanking me! I sweat more than I ever have during this Insanity. I literally am drenched!
This pear was almost too ripe to eat but I think I caught it in its last day! I had it at around 11 am
It cut like butter
And yes, I eat the whole thing
I don't know if you can tell from this picture but this is a BJ's size of blueberries. Seriously the biggest container I have ever seen! I need a recipe of something to do with them! I was thinking Blueberry Jam!!
I came home and munched on a cuke while making some lunch
Tuna wrap with sprouts, arugula, and a LC wedge
Tah-Dah (no foil!!)
Yum it was good! I threw some cumin into the tuna salad (cumin, cottage cheese, mustard) And this got me in the mood because I'm making Falafels tonight! YES!
On another note, did anyone watch the MTV Movie Awards last night? I didn't because I was sleeping but I did see some red carpet action on line and although I do love this dress that Stephanie Pratt is wearing (I LOVE neon colors) She looks so skinny! There were comments on this website that I found it on and girls were saying things like "OMG I WANT YOUR LEGS" and " she has the most amazing legs" Now, is it me, or are her legs extremely skinny and twig like? I like a more muscular, toned look rather than emaciated look...Maybe thats just me
I also love Gabrielle Reece! She is Athletic, fit and a KILLER athlete!
Now, Carrie Underwood. I want your legs!!!
- Are there any celebrities that you love and envy, not even necessarily looks wise, but in any way and why? I love carrie underwood! I think she is absolutely georgous, and she is so down to earth, not to mention she spends so much time doing charity work!
- Do you bring any of your own goodies to restaurants? I brought my own cinnamon to In a Pickle...just in case!! and I sometimes bring NuStevia packets as well!
- What did you eat this weekend that you can't stop thinking about!?
