Hello loves! I hope everyone’s weekend has gotten off to a good start.
No complaints here – I had a great meeting Friday with my thesis supervisor, and I’m actually really excited to get started on the project. That’s probably a good thing; it’s basically going to be my life for the next year, so good thing I get excited doing the research for it!
I had left a pork tenderloin marinating in salt, pepper, apple juice concentrate, olive oil and basil during the day, and then I threw it in the oven at 350 for about 40 minutes. With roasted potatoes and green beans, it made for an awesome meal. I basically just used Friday night to get some work done, then collapsed in bed around midnight. I’m impressed with myself I made it that long – I was feeling pretty sleepy by about 8:30. Yup, party animal right here.
Breakfast Saturday morning made me so, so happy.
Banana oats in a chocolate peanut butter jar. Nut butter, banana and chocolate – I’m pretty sure it is actually impossible to beat that combo.
- canned lentils
- canned black beans
- egg whites
- strip sirloin steak (on sale at the Farmer’s Market. So excited!!)
- spreadable butter
- olive oil spray
- cottage cheese
- tomato basil turkey sausages
- cream cheese
- peanut butter
- lemon juice
- yellow beans
- blueberries (not in season. Don’t care, I had a craving!)
- green pepper
- canned green chilis
- sweet potatoes
- baby carrots
- English muffins
- brown basmati rice
- no sugar added strawberry jam
And a little extra something for me…
I went to the LCBO today and picked up one of the wines that I tried at the Food and Wine Show a few weeks ago. Voga Moscato – Italian, with a little hint of bubbliness. So good.
And speaking of good…
This will not be lasting long. I’ve had the White Chocolate and the Dark Chocolate PB & Co and adored them, but Cinnamon Raisin was a new one for me. When you consider my inclination to dump a ridiculous amount of cinnamon on my food daily, it’s not really surprising that I’ve already inhaled more spoonfuls than I care to admit :-p
So when it came time for dinner yesterday, someone had a craving (and I had a coupon)…
We got A & W coupons in the mail a few days ago, and Eric specifically requested we go this weekend. And who am I to say no to a craving?
While I don’t think fast food is something to be eaten on a regular basis, I’ll eat it every once in a while (maybe a few times a year). Everything in moderation, right?
I got the veggie burger, which came with swiss on a whole wheat bun. Hey, at least they’re trying to healthify things, right? Obviously not the best veggie burger I’ve ever had, but I’ll take it. And for the record, the best fast food veggie burger is from Harvey’s. Hands down. I also split an order of onion rings with Eric.
I’d say he’s happy!
We ate dinner while watching 28 Days Later. Fast food and zombies…we’re romantics, aren’t we?
Talk to you later!
<— In your opinion, what is the best nut butter ever? This one might actually beat out my precious Skippy Natural.
<— Zombie movies/tv shows, yay or nay? I’m a tad obsessed…
