I finally met up with my best pal & roommate, Eva, from university today for dinner. I haven’t seen her since graduation!! She was kind enough to choose a restaurant conveniently close to my office. The original place we chose didn’t work out since they close at 5pm. So we went to Hot House Cafe instead- neither of us has been there before. I was pleasantly surprised by the fancy decor inside……based on its name alone, I thought it would resemble something like Second Cup!!
We had a good time…..reminiscing about the past, gossiping about people (both good & bad, hey…give us a break, we gotta do what girls do best!!), & catching up on our lives. We must do this again sometime this summer.
1 glass of water, 1/2 C unsweetened vanilla almond milk, & cereal combo:
- 3/4 C 0% plain yogurt
- 1/2 C Shreddies
- 1/2 C puffed wheat cereal
- Dash of cinnamon
I didn’t French press my coffee this morning. I was craving Starbuck’s Misto from yesterday….don’t worry, I brought my mug for the environment’s sake. I couldn’t buy a Tall since my mug was too big. My foamy Grande Bold Nonfat Misto (sprinkled with chocolate powder, nutmeg, & vanilla) was a much needed pick-me-up on a Friday morning.
Are you sick of my oatmeal yet? I’m not!!! 😀 Today’s creation is the same as yesterday’s lunch (sprinkled some granola & some random fruit salad on top at work…there was a crazy amt of food in my company kitchen today).
- 1 nectarine & 1 orange
- Kashi Raspberry Chocolate Granola Bar
- 20 raw Almonds
- 2 slices of watermelon & 1 chunk of honey dew (from work)
- 1 square Ritter Sport Extra Fine Dark Chocolate 71% Cocoa
Dinner (at Hot House Cafe)
I had a seafood pasta dish called “Puttanesca” (Tiger shrimp, sea scallops, capers, anchovies, nicoise olives, cherry tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, tomato basil sauce with tagliatelle). The sauce was flavourful & they somehow made the olives quite tasty (I normally dislike olives). I wish they had more seafood, but this is just me being greedy. If it was my decision, I would make the whole dish all seafood!! yum yum 😀 It was a never ending dish; I ended up bagging almost half of it home.
Eva had a bacon wrapped Fillet Mignon with asparagus, & leak and chive mash potato. It looked delicious….much better than mine?
*YAWN* Thank goodness it’s Friday. I watched this week’s America’s Next Top Model once I returned home. Whoa, what an explosive episode. People can be so dramatic….calm down!!
I am so tired! Time to pass out on my bed. G’nite!
