Last night Bobby and I went to see The Dark Knight. There aren’t words to describe just how incredible it was! Everything from the acting to the storyline to the special effects kept me wanting more! It was also great that it was filmed in Chicago because I could pick out some of my favorite places! I absolutely recommend this movie to anyone looking for a thrilling and slightly eerie way to spend 2.5 hours!
Before the movie, we made a fabulous dinner.
Why yes, that IS a huge bowl of goodness! We really pulled out all the stops on this one, and it turned out wonderful. From the left, we have corn and edamame succotash…
Followed by some boiled shrimp…
And my favorite part of this dish? Annie’s Whole Wheat Shells & White Cheddar topped with a Laughing Cow cheese wedge!
I separated them out because I wanted to enjoy each part of the dish and its individual flavors. Bobby chose to mix it all together, which I’m sure still tasted just as good!
On the side, we had fresh pineapple that I cut myself for the first. time. ever! It turned out juicy and tangy, just the way I like it:) After eating this, I was sufficiently stuffed!
At the movie, I had some candy from the bulk bins at the theater. I love these bulk bins because you get to choose a bit of everything. I had sour gummy worms, gummy bears, and sour watermelon slices. I love candy! I have the biggest sweet tooth ever!
We also went to the grocery store yesterday to stock up on more goodies.
I got egg whites and regular liquid eggs, spinach, Fage and Oikos (on sale!!!), Reddi-Whip, sun-dried tomatoes, almond milk, Jell-O rice pudding, TLC soft-baked bars, SWEET POTATOES!, Jell-O pudding mix (more on that one later!) and raspberries (also on sale!) A pretty nice stash if I do say so myself.
So far this morning, I’ve been treated to a fabulous brunch at Walker Bros. by a friend from school who was in town for the weekend. I’ve posted about this place many times before, but it just never gets old I had the oatmeal with bananas, as usual!
I used about 2 tsp. of brown sugar and ate all of the bananas. I just love how creamy these oats are. I’ve never been able to replicate it! Oh well, that’s why going out to eat is such a treat Ha! I just realized that rhymes. I’m a poet and I didn’t know it. And now I’m just a dork.
I’m off to run some errands! I am slowly but surely catching up on all of the blogs! I’m sorry if I haven’t commented yet this weekend – just know that I will eventually Better late than never!
Why am I so full of clichés today?!?!?!
