Lots of food and fun people! That’s what was in my weekend :)
I had dinner at Baja Fresh with my parents on Friday before my mom and I went to see Godspell.
I love that they give you free chips and access to the salsa bar. We had pico de gallo and a new pineapple salsa! YUMM!
I ordered the Mango Chipotle Chicken Salad (Tortilla shell filled with Romaine lettuce, chicken, avocado, Cotija cheese, mango salsa, and a chipotle glaze. Served with chipotle vinaigrette). I got the chicken and cheese on the side for my dad to eat.
My parents ordered veggie nachos to share.
I ate all my salad and some nachos. SOO GOOD! We said goodbye to my dad and headed to church for the play!
It was really good to see everyone! The kids did a really great job and it brought back a ton of awesome memories :)
I headed home after dropping my mom off because I had a breakfast date with z on Saturday morning at 9:30!! We went to Starbucks (soy misto and a banana!) and sat on the steps of the Portrait Gallery! What a gorgeous day it was! After breakfast, we stopped by the Verizon Center store to look for some Capitals t-shirts. We walked back to my place and I grabbed my stuff so we could head over to z’s house.
We went grocery shopping because we were making dinner for PREAKNESS ON THE PIKE! After we put the groceries away, we worked outside weeding, cleaning, sweeping, etc. Then we sat around for a little while. It was so nice to enjoy the beautiful weather.
Around 3 we started prepping all the veggies:
z made a fresh corn and black bean salad with cilantro, lime, salt and pepper.
I made the
rooster’s beak pico de gallo.
The G’s got there around 4:30 and the margaritas started flowing :)
My plate with a Corona!
Hey little man! Nice shirt ;)
After we watched the Preakness (all two minutes of it), we celebrated the CD release of The List’s new CD!!!
We cranked it up and drank some bubbly.
SG made some amazing cookies! The dark ones are vegan molasses oat cookies with raisins! I had
five a few…Yum!
We stayed up drinking Miller High Life and talking! It was so much fun hanging out with everyone. The little man slept in my arms for the longest time and I absolutely loved it <3 The G’s went home around 12:30, then z and I cleaned up the kitchen. I’m really glad we cleaned up because it meant we got to sleep in until…11:30!!! WOW. Since it was so late, we skipped breakfast and made lunch instead.
I can’t take any credit for lunch. z did it all and even garnished them!
After lunch, we walked up the street to get a paper and some coffee. We ran into the G’s at the farmer’s market and we were glad to find out that they slept in too ;)
We sat in a little park reading the paper and drinking our coffee and then it was time for z to take me home.
A little after I got home I had a snack:
Before I went to the gym, I soaked some brown rice and seaweed in warm water.
I did two miles on the treadmill, lots of stretching, two leg machines, one arm machine, body bar exercises, bosu ball abs and arms, and squats! Good workout!
Then I headed to the store to shop for the week.
This is what $43 got me at Safeway…
Two boxes of
my new obsession Vanilla Almond Shredded Wheat (coupon), steam in a bag veggies (coupon), baby carrots, tub of hummus…
Post-gym appetizer: half a ww tortilla, baby carrots and hummus
Dinner: Shredded wheat with strawberries and unsweetened almond milk.
After dinner I started making my seaweed salad.
Rice vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, toasted sesame oil, red pepper flakes, sesame seeds, and a pinch of sugar.
I can’t wait to eat this!!
I had such an awesome weekend with awesome people :)
