So it appears that I can’t save drafts on one computer and pick it up on another to finish off. I spent the last little bit of my day yesterday writing a post at work, saved it to add the pics when I got home, and then it’s just empty!!! Oh well. This just means I have a lot of chatting to do now.
For a morning snack yesterday I had a banana. I was feeling hungry for awhile , but held off until 11. I have no idea why oats doesn’t keep me full for long!
At 12 I was starving and headed to the farmer’s market to get a grilled veggie sandwich from a vendor there. The sandwich is made on this awesome foccacia like bread with just a little bit of cheese, spinach, onions and roasted red peppers. It is so good. I think grilled sandwiches are one of my favourite things to eat!
I also got some eggplant salad from the Lebanese restaurant. It’s cousous, eggplant, chickpeas, peppers and onion. There was a little pool of oil in the bottom of the container. I don’t even want to think about how much oil I consumed!!! The salad was okay. I won’t get it again.
My boss bought some bakalava from the Lebanese restaurant too. I had a small piece and it was the perfect ending to my lunch. So sweet and delicious! I was then very full until about 4:00.
My afternoon snack consisted of a Fage 2%, some strawberries and about a third of an oatmeal raisin cliff bar.
This held me over quite nicely until it was time for dinner.
Date made a delicious dinner for me last night!!! It was a very spring-like meal and was really nice. It was a pasta primavera with rigatoni pasta, asparagus, artichoke hearts and cherry tomatoes which were sauted with lots of garlic, basil and some chicken stock. When the pasta was ready he added it to the veggies and then added brie and romano cheese and mixed it all up.
This was so good!!! He told me he forgot to put black olives and red onion in but it was delish anyways! It wasn’t heavy at all, but the brie gave it a nice, light creamy taste!!
He also made garlic bread which I was informed had half a stick of butter after I had already eaten 3 pieces!!! It’s funny how differently guys cook than girls!
For dessert, we went to Pow Wow, a local restaurant. Dessert was amazing! We split two. The cheesecake of the day which was a Reeses cheesecake that was unbelievable creamy. I consider myself a bit of a cheesecake connaisseur, and this was so good! We also had the warm apple crumble tart that came with two small scoops of vanilla ice cream and a shooter of creme anglaise. We each had a B52 coffee which was amazing.
After dessert, I had a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile and date had a Grand Marnier on the rocks.
It was a lovely evening. I definitely need to tell him about the blog so I can start taking pictures of some of the amazing food we’ve eaten!
This morning I slept in!! The alarm went off at 8, but I didn’t get up until 9! I promptly made my way downstairs and made Kath’s Oatmeal Brule.
I think I left the walnuts out last time I made this. I put them in this time and it is definitely better with the walnuts. It gives it even more of a banana bread taste!
It’s a beautiful day in sunny southern ontario today and I think I will either be going for a bike ride, a walk, or both. I wore my stilettos last night and we walked, so my feet are a bit sore today. We’ll see how I make out!
I hope those of you that have today off are enjoying it!
