Hey there! It’s been a busy few days so I’m having to do a multi-day recap post here. Thankfully I don’t have too too much to say. It’s been fun though.
Thursday I did breakfast to go.
The last of a jar of crunchy pb (~ 1-2 Tbsp) filled with a 0% strawberry Greek yogurt, 1/4 cup of raw oats, and 1/4 cup of Silk Vanilla Almond Milk.
Lunch was roasted broccoli with peanut sauce.
This combo was delicious, even cold.
And some gummi cola bottles.
The amount shown there is about 1/2 of what I brought back from Canada; I should have bought more!
When I got home Adam and a nice surprise for me –
The hospital he’s doing his current rotation at has a great cafeteria that sells our favorite pizza in Buffalo (legit!).
And then I fell asleep at 5pm. I was feeling super tired throughout the day and the minute I sat down on the couch I was done for. I slept from 5 – 10, got up to get ready for bed, and went back to sleep!
Don’t worry, I more than made up for any missed dinner calories on Friday. The amount of junk I ate was so disgusting that it ended up being almost impressive! Everything was delicious (duh!) but I think my body would appreciate a few more veggies.
It was National Donut Day and I had to partake.
That donut was rich I couldn’t even finish it. I’m just not a donut girl, my consumption for the year is officially over 🙂
But sweet coffee? Dont’ mind if I do.
I got a large Black Cocoa iced coffee with skim milk. Adam got this (Men in Black!) special the other day and I was so good I had to have one of my own. The lady who served us told me they were only making them through this week so taste one while you can.
Lunch was fresh-cut pineapple,
and a Cherry Cobbler Larabar Uber.
It was good but not as tasty as Bananas Foster. Again, lots of big nuts and almost no date flavor. And the cherries were tart and sweet. Somehow it didn’t have quite enough flavor though.
School went really well on Friday. I am ServSafe certified, woot!
Some friends and I celebrated after class. Bloody Mary at Pano’s.
x2. And then I was drunk.
I also took them to check out Nickel City Cheese and Mercantile. In addition to having great stock the owners are fantastic. My friends bought an aged cheddar and a gouda each and the man behind the counter had us do lots of swoon-worthy tasting. I also brought home a treat for Adam.
He brought a treat for me too!
I happily ate that slice but then I had to tell him to stop bringing me pizza so I don’t get fat…ter.
Then we tried my treats. A blue cheese and dark chocolate and goat cheese honey milk truffle!
We took one bite of each but I think I was a bigger fan than Adam. They were a little strange but sooooo good. The creaminess of goat cheese makes a perfect truffle center.
We had a gift certificate to use so we went on a dinner date to Romeo and Juliet’s Cafe.
I started with bread; one slice with garlic and a second with butter.
And for my meal I ordered the Baked Eggplant Parmigiana.
Oh. My. God. I left the pasta to the side (who eats pasta when there are layers of eggplant and cheese available?!), shared a few cherished bites with Adam, and then demolished the rest.
We took dessert to go.
That ball was a peanut butter mousse with chocolate ganache. Ridiculous.
I wanted to post last night but unfortunately I passed out then as well. The dog has been shedding a lot more recently (this is our first June with him) and I may be the tiniest bit allergic to him.
So now it’s Saturday. I’ve eaten a bowl of Maple Brown Sugar Mini Wheats with Silk Vanilla Almond Milk,
and I’m ready to conquer the day. Conquer may mean errands or may mean tv, we shall see.
