So post-birthday debauchery yesterday, we hit up Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s – yum! I even got a little premade wrap that I thought was the bomb – Trader Ming’s Thai Style White Meat Chicken Wrap. It was SO good – loved the peanut sauce that went with it and it was super filling with the carrot, cabbage and chicken. Definitely a product I’d pick up again on the go! Once we got home we spent the whole day relaxing, hanging out and watching movies – SO nice! We watched a few: Year One (no thanks… was kinda funny at first but was just too silly for us and we couldn’t finish it), Paper Heart (I was kind of into it… Austin was not so I’m going to try to watch this again) and Julie & Julia (I FINALLY got to see this – Austin’s mom had been telling me to see it and she was right – I loved it! I thought it was a cute movie and loved, of course, the idea of cooking/blogging a bunch of recipes. I especially enjoyed the Julia Child parts of the movie – so cool to see how she got her start and so late in age – such an inspiration). I ended my lovely Sunday at 1,767 calories, 225 carbs, 57 fat grams and 98 protein grams. Here’s what I ate.
Today started out with an exciting commute – I finished listening to Mary Higgins Clark’s Two Little Girls in Blue. This was a mystery I picked up at B&N last weekend, and what was my first Mary Higgins Clark book! It was about a young family with two twins who have one of their twins abducted. There’s a ransom involved, multiple suspects and more. Honestly, I’m only giving it a 3/5. It was definitely a mystery and the ending surprised me and there were lots of characters who seemed suspicious. It was written well, tied everything up well, etc., but I guess it felt like it was a really long law & order. Maybe I’m just “over” the kidnap/ransom thing and there wasn’t anything different enough about this one to make it interesting. I think the “different” part was supposed to be the twins and their twin talk and how the spared twin helped them find the abducted twin through them talking to each other in their minds or something? And that was interesting… but it didn’t do it for me completely! So I’m glad I read it but I never really got INTO it you know?
After finishing my book I just worked, had some waffles and yogurt, and went down to the gym for 4 miles. After my workout I just worked more and then headed home to cook since I didn’t cook at all yesterday! Eek! I made the following:
- 4 servings of Chicken Fiesta new!
- 4 servings of Taco Bake new!
- 4 servings of 'mexican-flavored ground beef' (plan to use for taco salads and tacos!)
- 6 servings of Brunch Pizza Squares
- 4 servings of four-cheese pepperoni pizza
