Anticipating that the next few weekends are going to be very busy- updates to come!- I knew I needed to workout every week day morning this coming week. In that case, I took this Friday off to get some extra sleep and take my rest day. After two extra glorious hours of sleep, I heated up two of these whole wheat Van waffles and smeared them with peanut butter. Since it was Friday, I decided to be fancy and toast up some coconut. Blueberries and a banana completed my meal.
It was an extra special peanut buttery day that continued onto lunch with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on sour dough. For veggies, I chopped up carrots, peppers, celery, and sugar snap peas and dipped them in some hummus. An apple was a great accompaniment to the meal.
I had high hopes for my dinner when I met my friend Lauren at a restaurant after work. Starting with some chips and salsa, I sipped on a margarita and went back and forth trying to decide what to eat. I ended up asking the waitress her opinion and from the description on the menu, I was excited. It was supposed to be a corn tortilla filled with corn, zucchini, summer squash, peppers, and portabella mushrooms covered in a spinach cream sauce. The spinach cream sauce was delicious, but when I cut into it, it was full of onion and corn. I hate onions. Thus, I had a disappointing dinner, which is worse when you have to pay for it.
Now that I look back at it, it doesn’t look very appetizing. It was a still a fun night and a great time catching up with a friend.
