I spent Friday night getting a little drunk. Mind you, not so drunk that I would actually want to listen to Katy Perry’s “Last Friday Night.” We did watch some bad stand up comedy on Netflix though. <– Tim Minchin, not as funny as this joke would lead you to believe. (It’s so dirty, don’t click, Nana!)
Friday morning started with a Chocolate Dipped Coconut Luna Bar on the way to the hospital.
I had plans for a morning gym session but when I saw the weather report I decided to sleep in instead. We got really lucky here, the snow was annoying but not anything dangerous.
I had a nice day at the hospital in spite of the weather. I got to chart on several interesting patients and had a little more practice with doing pediatric TPN orders. I love the nutrition support aspect of dietetics but children are really different from what I’ve done with adults.
Lunch was a simple salad.
Chopped green pepper and cucumber with evoo, Sriracha, and some salty peanuts.
What a winning combination!
Plus a GoGo Squeez Cinnamon Applesauce packet.
Great on the go, but not as amazing as the pile of fruit I had when I got home.
Underneath my mounds of blue and blackberries was Naked Vanilla Oat Milk, a little honey, and 1/4 cup each All Bran Bran Buds and Nature’s Path Coconut Chia Granola.
So flipping good. And it was a good thing I got in a healthy snack because my responsible food choices took a downhill turn during the rest of the evening.
I blame the Bitch Bubbly.
A girlfriend came over and she, Adam, and I drank the bottle in mimosas.
The sparkling wine was pretty bad, but our next round was fantastic –
Sips Lavender Lemondrop Sparkling Cocktails! This was so fun, and quite delicious. I described it to my coworker today as “Kate Spade’s Four Loco.” I would definitely buy them again.
But maybe I’d eat dinner first next time. My evening meal ended up being… A slice of bread with Smart Balance Light,
and a huge bowl of popcorn with melted Earth Balance.
Major thanks to the husband for making me two bowls of popcorn; I spilled that first one within a matter of minutes!
Saturday’s meals were a little healthier. Still very tasty though.
For breakfast, Adam and I split a great pb & j.
With a pear on the side.
I worked today, but only a half shift, so I had time to get lunch from Wegman’s hot bar. Some tofu and veggies in mushroom dashi with two pieces of inari.
I did lots of Googling, and as far as I could tell mushroom dashi is just mushroom stock, so I’m still not sure what that yummy sauce was.
We made tofu for dinner too.
A bed of cabbage —a bag of “Asian Slaw” mix cooked with a bit of Earth Balance with caramelized onions tossed in towards the end— topped with walnuts —cooked in a skillet with salt and sugar— and tofu —super firm tofu cooked in the skillet we used for the onions, finished with a sauce of tamari, rice vinegar, sesame oil, Sriracha, honey, and orange juice.
I was glad I added the nuts at the last-minute to help break up the texture. The flavors were spot on though.
I had Goody Good Stuff Tropical Fruit for dessert.
Adorable, and much firmer than the other varieties.
Was your area hit with this weekend’s crazy weather?
