Holy cow! Is it seriously Wednesday? Really!? Last year might have been the slowest moving year of my life but this year has obviously taken a Jessie Spano sized dosage of no-doze and is SO EXCITED!
While I desperately want things to slow down a bit [I’m in no rush to thrust myself into another military deployment. YUCK!] I wouldn’t mind if the rest of this month to sped on by. Two of my favorite people are getting hitched next month and I cannot wait to watch them tie the knot! I’m also excited about Valentine’s Day for once in my life because I have a smooshy little cherub of a baby to celebrate it with! She’s obviously MY Valentine. Paul will have to find his own. Unless he wants to bribe me… in which case I challenge him to bah-ring it. Last year he was able to win me over with coffee and a bagel. I seriously need to step up my standards a bit.
Though I still expect that bagel.
What I Ate Wednesday #157
What I ate… last Friday!
[breakfast] blueberry yogurt and a banana [lunch] lean cuisine’s butternut squash with veggies (holy cow these are good! I don’t eat frozen meals often but when I do, it’s this pasta veggie combo or veggie korma) [snack] the chickpea didn’t finish her mini avocado so I mashed the rest into guacamole for myself! Ole! [snack] two insanely addictive carrot cake muffins [recipe] …or maybe it was three? I lost count! [dinner] baked spaghetti — it’s somewhere under that obscene lake of cheese!
Totally different day… but I also managed to face plant into some sushi recently on a mini road trip to Raleigh with the fam. Mia had her usual avocado while Paul and I split fried pickles [swoon!] and a platter of sushi. I keep thinking the day will come that I’m thoroughly exhausted of sushi but surprisingly it’s downright impossible! I can live with that!
The roll with the crazy traffic light-themed toppings is called the Tropical Storm. It’s essentially cucumber, avocado, and imitation crab topped with salmon, yellowtail and tuna and with fancy flavored masago. I’ll branch out and try a different roll eventually but until then, I keep ordering this one on repeat whenever I’m in town!
Raleigh road trips are our favorite!
Like Jessie, Paul was also SO EXCITED!
