I’m (almost) through my 2nd week! How long do you think I’ll have to be back at work before I stop counting? My guess is at least a month.
About the title… The birthday was Adam’s. My husband turned 28 on Wednesday so for the next 6 months I’ll stop being the older woman.
That picture is from BDL; i.e the years Before Doctor Life. He is on a very busy rotation now so unfortunately we didn’t have time for anything too festive. He got a disgusting amount of Taco Bell and we watched “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.”
The burritos were from Red’s All Natural.
They recently sent me some free-product coupons so that I could try out the goods. All Red’s products are 100% all-natural, preservative-free and made with antibiotic-free and hormone-free meat and rBGH-free cheese. I love the company’s philosophy and practices and I liked the burritos too (though admittedly not quite as much as their ideals).
So far I’ve tried two varieties. I microwaved one burrito and baked the other. The nuked one was a little mushy, but not at all chewy like some lower-quality tortillas tend to get in the microwave. The one I baked got perfectly crispy and nice. Both had good ingredient combinations but sadly I found the flavors to be a bit one-note. It is also worth pointing out that the burritos are giant, more than 500 calories each which is a lot for one meal component. However, they are also very, very filling – I shared both of mine with Adam because I could not finish. If you have someone to split with they are a great option but if you are purchasing them to eat alone just be mindful. <– they also have 5 oz burritos available in some varieties!
Overall, I am giving the two I tried a positive review (just not glowing). I am looking forward to trying some of the other varieties and I will definitely be sharing them on the blog when I do.
A new polka dot dress, from the Gap.
The Gap sales rack has been very kind to me this season. Even with my newbies, however, I’ve pretty much gone through my entire closet in the two weeks, so we’ll see how long “Fashion Friday” continues to last.
Cookie Dough Balance Bar.
Chocolate Peppermint Stick Luna Bar.
Monday. Looks like breakfast but was actually lunch. Quaker Cherry Pistachio Oatmeal.
Just like last week, picture lots of lunch assembly bites. This first one was an after dinner treat though. Looks like a root beer float…
An Andes tree.
These gorgonzola cracker crisps have been a favorite for munching.
Best dinner of the week, hands down.
Soy Boy organic Smoked Tofu that I sautéed in evoo.
With shredded (frozen) cabbage that we cooked in canola oil with salty peanuts and fresh edamame. We dumped in a bunch of miso orange dressing at the end and let it reduce, and the whole thing was heavenly.
Salad and a burrito.
Cereal night on Adam’s birthday.
Two servings of Love Crunch Gingerbread Granola with vanilla almond milk and sliced banana.
Do you have any exciting plans for this upcoming weekend?
