Happy Friday! I've got a busy day planned and cannot wait to get started!
Today's agenda includes:
- Drive back to school
- Clean out my car/pack
- Volunteer at a food pantry
- Drive to the Cities
- Meet some lovely ladies for supper and a show!
I'm going to try to cram some homework in there but as of right now I'm not quite sure when that will happen.
Last night I came to visit Al and we went to a fantastic wine and coffee bar. We each had a 2 glasses of wine for happy hour - Him: Cabernet Sauvignon Her: Pinot Grigio and Sangria. Our original plans were to stay for happy hour, catch up, and then go home to make spaghetti with spaghetti squash. Yeah, that didn't happen. We ended up seeing the salad/taco/soup bar at JavaVino and all bets were off.
I absolutely love salad bars, so there was no question when I got one massive salad mountain!
Tonight's salad was topped with:
- Egg crumbles
- Black olives
- Balsamic vinegar
- Olive oil
- Beets (on the side)
- Strawberries (on the side)
After supper, Al and I had planned to watch the 2nd Sherlock Holmes movie but we both got distracted, I with making treats for this weekend and Al with catching a mouse in the (detached) garage. When everything was said and done, I was just ready for bed!
I usually bring leftovers from my school residence to Al's when I come visit, but I was in such a hurry yesterday, I forgot to bring anything. So, I wasn't quite sure what I'd find this morning that was gluten-free/dairy-free. Luckily, I found some gluten-free oats and frozen berries. So breakfast was practically decided for me.
To up the flavor ante, I added some coconut palm sugar, coconut oil, and a teaspoon or so of mixed nuts that I "stole" from Al's stash. I don't think I've ever added coconut oil to my oatmeal before but it was quite the taste sensation! I really liked this mix, so it will likely make another appearance in my diet soon.
Time to get this girl's fanny a moving! See you at lunch time.
