I really appreciate everyone’s understanding as I took a couple of days off from blogging. I’m not completely better yet, but at least the doc procedure is over, my memory is back – haha, getting knocked out on purpose is a little scary! – and the results should be revealed before this week is over. I’m keeping my fingers crossed!
Bobby also appreciated all of the birthday wishes! I think he had a lot of fun yesterday – we played golf and went to Benihana for a super meal – you can’t not leave that place feeling stuffed. It’s one of those Japanese restaurants where they cook right in front of you on a hot grill. So many lovely courses, and at the end we had some raspberry sorbet and the waiters sang “Happy Birthday” Oh, and I think he liked my present, too! I got him some seasons of The Office on DVD – it’s going to be our next marathon DVD adventure…once Lost is done, of course!
I took him to the airport this morning so that he could head home and spend one last week with his family. I can’t believe that classes start almost one week from today! I feel slightly behind on the times since many of you are already in the swing of things, but that doesn’t mean I want it to start 😉 Although senior year will be a lot of fun.
So enough rambling, I’ve got some food to share – k?!
I had a mug of Coffee Cocoa this morning while driving to the airport.
Yet another mug that described how I felt at the time I drank out of it, since Bobby oh-so-conveniently scheduled his flight so that we left the house at 6:30 am 😉 Boys…what part of BEAUTY SLEEP do they not understand? Sheesh! I kid, I kid…
When I got back from the airport, my mom informed me that we were playing golf yet again. Not that I’m complainin’ – I soak up every chance I get while I’m at home! I quickly fueled up for the round with a bowl of Greek yogurt.
I used 1 cup of Fage 0% – 22g of protein, I love it! – a Blueberry ZBaR and 1 tbsp. of Barney Butter. I think this bowl fills me up just as much as oatmeal – hurray!
On the golf course, I started to get a little hungry near the end of the front nine, so I pulled out an extra special snack: a PB Cookie Larabar!
So then it turned out that by the time the round was over, I wasn’t very hungry for lunch. Blame it on the still-sore stomach I wanted to make sure I ate something though, so I had a small piece of cranberry bread that we found at a local bakery, topped with a shmear of more Barney Butter!
I suppose this was the equivalent to a spaced out lunch. In any case, it filled me up for a while. A few hours later, I had a fresh pluot when my tummy rumbled again.
Another Papa Bender creation! I swear I have eaten more red meat in the past two weeks than I have in the past year! My dad loves to pair red wine with steak, and that’s what we enjoyed this evening.
The meal included flank steak, which my dad seasoned with red and ground pepper, red wine, Worcestershire sauce and onion salt.
There was also some broccoli, which I topped with miso sauce for a bit of flavor.
And last but certainly NOT least, WATERMELON! Would you believe it if I told you that it’s my favorite fruit, but this is my first time having it all summer long?!
I definitely had some more after this picture It was juicy and delicious!
And to round out the meal, a glass of red wine – a cabernet from Columbia Crest.
And a Sunday evening would not be complete without a little ice cream…
I’m almost out of pumpkin ice cream! I really hope that they have it back at school.
Question: I am very nearly out of space in my WordPress media library. I guess that’s what taking several photos from many angles will do to ya 😉 Has anyone else had this problem? Do I have to purchase a space upgrade? It kinda stinks because if I delete photos, they’re gone forever and if I happened to link them to my blog, that picture will no longer work. I made that mistake during the early days of the blog, and now some of my earliest posts don’t have pictures that work! Long story short – does anyone have any advice?
Have a Monday, everyone 😉
