Thursday and Friday Eats
Work has been pretty slow for me lately, making this whole not running/exercising thing even harder. More time to think about how I’m not able to run and beautiful weather also aren’t helping my cause! Todd’s usual work schedule has changed to more of a night shift, which is kind of nice because the AM is when I crave running the most, but it means I’m alone at night. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE having the mornings with him, making pancakes and walking Riley, but I miss him at dinner! He finally got to meet Ry and I’s friend Frankie…
As always, my friends and family have stepped up to the plate and have been keeping me busy. Thursday I had a dinner date with Melissa at Seasons 52. The restaurant is located right outside a mall and I did some retail therapy before dinner, which is very unlike me.
All of this for just under $120. I think that’s a pretty darn good deal! I’m such a bargain shopper. OK. Onto the food. I really like Seasons 52 because all the meals are portion controlled and pretty healthy. Gone are the days of being able to eat however much I want- one of my main struggles right now. I have the biggest stomach! We started off with the Spicy Chicken Chile Relleno with sun-dried tomatoes, goat cheese, spinach and pico de gallo. It was good, but not spicy at all. For our entrees we both ordered the Grilled Boneless Rainbow Trout with baby carrots, parsley roasted potatoes and grilled lemon. We both subbed our carrots for a veggie medley.
They offer “Mini Indulgences” for dessert, but who are we kidding? Those are just a HUGE tease and would probably make me mad when I’ve finished after 2 bites…
I love dining with someone who understands my predicament and lets me bitch about it, haha. We obviously had other things to talk about, but venting always helps 🙂
Thanks for a fun night Twin! On to Friday… The BF Ashley and her hubby Zach are official homeowners as of Thursday- woo hoo! Congrats! After Todd left for work Friday, I headed over to see the new place and help them unpack. I arrived with a bottle of wine for Ash and left with some Samoas for all my hard work… OK, so it wasn’t really hard work, but I took the cookies anyway 🙂
As if that wasn’t enough fun for one day, I swooped by the house to pick up Riley and head to my parents for dinner. My dad grilled up some steak while my mom and I (mainly my mom) put together a huge salad- spinach, spring mix, romaine, feta, cucumbers, red onion, tomatoes, peperoncini and roasted red peppers. Yummo!
The steak was cooked perfectly and topped with some sauteed mushrooms. This girl needs her iron! Dinner at the rents? Yes. Please. Topped off with a few Samoas from Ash for dessert and my weekend was off to a great start 🙂 Hope you had a great weekend!
