So, by the looks of the comments on yesterday’s post, not a single person celebrated National Fro-Yo Day with me?!
Well, as long as you’re not vegan, you BETTER be celebrating this weekend:
Oh yeah…that would be THREE different cups of fro-yo…all with different flavors and toppings…ALL eaten within the last week!
Now quit licking your computer screen and go get some of your own!
Here are just a few of the things that have gotten me through this week and will hopefully continue on for one more day…who’s ready for Friday?! I know I am!
Running with Broccoli…
…Babe, that is! 😉
BB and I went on our first long run together Sunday afternoon and it was great!
Thankfully he slowed down his pace a little for me (I still can’t believe an 8 minute mile is a SLOW pace for him!). The weather was a little cold (see the chill bumps?) that day, but having someone to run with definitely takes your mind off things. It reminded me how much I enjoy running with a partner.
Proven fact: good conversation makes the miles FLY by!
I stumbled upon this T-shirt on Tuesday in the hospital gift shop and just HAD to take a pic!
Corny puns are my favorite!
A Mid-Week Date Night
BB and I went out last night to one of my favorite places in our little town called The Blackhorse…it’s a local brewery with some of THE BEST pizza I’ve ever had!
We ended up getting a beer a piece (vanilla cream ale for me and a red ale for BB), beer-cheese dip and chips, and
“The Tunisian”: Garlic butter, honey and curry topped with roasted chicken, roasted red pepper, red onion, mozzarella & provolone
And what was even better was having enough leftover pizza today for lunch along with my delicious fruit-topped salad:
Spinach topped with oranges, dried cranberries and almonds..can’t believe I haven’t thought of this combo before!
Unfortunately, after a week of fun running, beaver humor, pizza, beer, and salads,
THIS is how today looked after I got home from work:
Ever feel like you get blindsided by a cold/sinus/whatever-the-heck-is-going-on-with-my-body-causing-me-not-to-breathe-normally thing?
Well, such is the case with this.
And that is where “The Boyfriend” comes in to play:
I’d say in about an hour, I’m going to be
face-planting… slurping…daintily consuming a warm bowl of chicken and dumplin’s!
Here’s the recipe I found for BB to use…hope it turns out well!
And now, to finish lounging on the couch until my dinner appears in front of me! 😉
Yeah, you know those women who have a hard time allowing men to take care of them? Well trust me, you CAN be an independent woman AND eat your chicken and dumplin’s too!
Quick! What’s the first thing that pops into your mind when you think comfort food?
What is your favorite fruit to add to a salad?
