Happy Thursday everyone! How’s your day starting off?
Mine, as usual, started off nice and early with a little BodyPump action, followed by about 20 minutes worth of elliptical intervals. I upped my weights in a couple tracks and I definitely think I’ll be feelin’ it tomorrow!
So last night I was MIA because lucky me was out having a blast with my girl, Sarah.
We met up for dinner and drinks at JJ Rafferty’s, and enjoyed our evening outdoors on their patio. In case you haven’t noticed a pattern, I’m totally addicted to dining outdoors once the weather heats up.
We each enjoyed a delicious glass of sangria, which I would say definitely rivaled the tasty glass that I enjoyed in Baltimore a couple weeks ago. It was good, and I loved all the fresh fruit.
For dinner, I ordered their Summer Salad with grilled chicken which, according to their menu, was a spinach salad topped with fresh grilled zucchini and summer squash, tomatoes, mushrooms, carrots, scallions, and a ginger balsamic dressing.
To be honest, the salad was kind of lame-o. I mean, it tasted fine- the chicken was fresh, the dressing was great, and don’t even get me started on the amazing garlic bread- but for $13.98, I would have appreciated a few more veggies than the 5 slices of zucchini they gave me.
Hey, no big deal. I was in good company, and we were having such a great time chatting away that I hardly paid attention. It was almost a good three hours later by the time we decided to pack it up and call it a night.
And for the record, neither of us really like this picture at all, but I told her I was going to put it up anyways…you know, for the blog’s sake.
Thanks again for a great night, Sarah!
As soon as I got back from the gym this morning, I quickly got to work on whipping up a batch of these…
I was given a special request from one of Jay’s co-workers for these little guys, which he apparently spotted while scoping out the recipes here on the blog. Just the mere fact that he was even on my blog was reason enough for me to fill his request…
So if you’re reading Jamie, they’re on their way this afternoon!
Once I got these bad boys into the oven, and thoroughly licked the batter off the spoon of course, it was time for some breakfast.
Today’s meal of champs came in the form of two toasted Van’s Lite Waffles, topped with some TJ’s almond butter with flax, banana slices, chia seeds, and a little drizzle of maple syrup.
I just realized right now, as I was looking at this picture, that I totally forgot to add my cinnamon. Darn it. I hate when that happens. But funny how I didn’t notice it once while eating them. Hmmmm…
In true Courtney fashion, I sipped on an iced coffee to round out the meal.
I must actually thank all of YOU for today’s breakfast. All I really wanted to do was pour another bowl of cereal, but since I’ve given you that the past two days, I figured it was time to change things up.
Thanks for keeping me from becoming too mundane my friends. You guys rock…in case you didn’t already know it.
Question for the Morning:
If you could only have one breakfast choice for a week straight, what would you choose?
