Welcome, weekend warriors!
No Saturday post because I spent most of the day moping around the house. Little was accomplished, though I did get the laundry done.
I got so sick of myself that I made damn sure to have fun today. And I’ve been thinking positive thoughts about the upcoming week as well. I want to make sure my last 8 days before summer school are as productive/relaxing/fun/healthy as possible.
We got this morning off to a tasty/healthy start with
sludge smoothies to go.
Enjoyed out of repurposed jars instead of fancy stemware because we were on a family walk.
In the blend were unmeasured amounts of frozen banana, frozen blackberries, frozen spinach, and oj.
Plus a piece of rye bread with strawberry jam and Smart Balance Light when we got home.
Our new jam is the store-brand version of Crofter’s (ie organic and with no added sugar) and sadly it’s not very good.
Lunch was consumed out of hand. A slice of pizza (now you see what we did on Saturday!),
a Cara Cara orange,
and half of this package of mint m&m’s.
I’ve never been a huge m&m person but these mint ones are fantasmic. Perhaps because they are dark chocolate? They are one of the few (the only?!) desserts that actually tastes better to me in small quantities.
We walked to dinner and surreptitiously enjoyed Black Jack Colas along the way.
We went on a sushi date.
Kunis has been on our “Buffalo: Go To” list for months and I’m glad we finally gave it a shot because it was great and we’ll definitely be back.
I ordered three small plates to make up my meal. First, Wakame Salad.
Seasoned and dressed seaweed, with sesame and chili flakes. I’ve been trying to get Adam to taste seaweed salad for years and now that he finally did he’s officially obsessed (we stopped at the co-op on the way home because he was hoping to find more!). I will say that Kuni’s version was one of the best I’ve ever had. But – the photo isn’t deceiving you, it was a ridiculously small portion.
My soup course was a bowl of Udon.
Thick white flour noodles in a light broth, topped with sweetened tofu, wakame and scallions. At $3.75 this huge bowl was a steal. The sweet tofu wasn’t my favorite but the slightly sweet and sour broth was great.
Finally, a veggie roll.
It had asparagus, mushroom, and some pickled vegetable that I’m not remembering. Be forewarned – the wasabi at Kunis is fresh! I gobbed it on the way I usually do and my first bite almost killed me. It wasn’t necessarily spicy – in fact we both noticed that this wasabi put no spice on your tongue and was strangely sour – but a bunch of it stuck to the roof of my mouth and I started choking and breaking out in a cold sweat. Adam said my face was BRIGHT red!
We had a great walk home; Kuni’s is just far enough away to be fun. My dinner was good but on the smaller side and my mouth didn’t feel done so I ate a mug of cereal when we got home.
1 cup of Honey Nut Shredded Wheat with skim milk. Aaaaand, scene.
