Running in Skirts

well i made the menu on monday, does that count?

Posted on: June 9, 2009

ok ok so we’re just going to pretend that 5 day hiatus didnt count, kapeesh?  nothing exciting happened, and i dont feel like recapping the food.  (although i did bring robert to flemings on saturday, thanks to jenna for letting us in on their happy hour secret!  we split the calamari, crab cakes, shrimp, and carpacchio, and i had a basil lemondrop (omg so good!) and the white cosmo.  it was a great night!)

anyway, so let’s pretend it’s monday.  here goes:

monday:  we finally got those damn swedish meatballs all cooked and eaten!  theyve been on the menu for 3 weeks now!  i had a portion of meatballs, and a larger portion of egg noodles.  i swear i could live on egg noodles!

tuesday:  baked salmon brushed with evoo, salt+pepper, steamed broc and brown rice.  all drizzled with a balsamic+agave reduction (hmm robert wasnt a fan of the vinegar smell permeating our apartment haha – but it tasted yummy!)

here’s the picture of robert’s dish – my picture didnt turn out as well.  maybe we have another budding blogger on our hands?!


wednesday:  my new favorite way to eat pesto sauce… courtesy of rach, of course.  but instead of sausage + mozz balls, the boy is going to eat regular sausage and i am trying the sundried tomato chicken kind!

thursday: dinner is up in the air.  i am running my first race on thursday (a one-miler, but i’m excited anyway!) so we will probably grab something quick afterwards.  i am way excited for my race!

anyway so this morning started out like all other mornings… yogurt + kashi + fruit (blueberries) + tea.  i was ready to gnaw my arm off by lunch, and i was so excited to eat it!  i packed my lunch today for the first time in a million years (our new client has crappy food options.  blech.)  i had a whole grain pita stuffed with sabra red pepper hummus, feta cheese, 2 slices of turkey, tomatoes, and spinach.  it was so yummy!  and i had my dad’s “famous” cabbage salad on the side… which is basically chopped cabbage and italian dressing.  it’s so good – and its even better when it has time to marinate, so it will be especially scrumptious later this week.  i was starving again around 3pm, so i munched on some snacks – carrot sticks and a string cheese, and a kudos bar.  i usually dont eat all three (i pack them because you’ll never know if i’ll be craving salty or sweet) but i was so hungry!   and then on the way home i was starving again!  i didnt think i ran that far yesterday!  (19 min).  i stopped at trader joes to get the rest of my groceries for the week.. what a mistake going in there while i was starving!  i walked out with mostly snacks – 2 bags of rice chips (salt and pepper.  my fave!) 1 bag of unsalted pb pretzels, and one bag of choco covered pretzel crisps.  i’ve been dying to try these!  in between doing my laundry i was able to settle down with some real housewives and a small plate of all three.  i knew dinner wouldn’t be until later, so i didnt feel too guilty for splurging!

hmm still dont know how to rotate my pics!

oh and my beverage of choice this week is a huge gallon of unsweetened mint tea from TJ’s!  i tried a snapple for the first time in a while at lunch today (desperate times, desperate measures) and it was SO GROSS.  i threw it out.  it wasnt worth the 210 calories.  blech. this tea is so delicious, and is perfectly wonderful without any sweetener!

dinner was the salmon above, and dessert was a few more of those delish pretzel crisps:


yum yum yum!

anyway, thanks for letting me slide over the weekend 😉  this has been a good week, and i can’t wait til thursday!  what’s your fastest one-mile pace? mine is like 8.5 (or so says my nike+)… i guess we’ll see what it will be on thursday!
