Happy Weekend! The man and I had the plan to do absolutely nothing this weekend, well…that’s not exactly how it happened. But, we had a great weekend. Here’s what happened on Friday!
BREAKFAST – A shocking breakfast! A Kashi trail mix bar. It’s so delicious. The one negative of only eating a granola bar for breakfast is that it doesn’t fill me up for hours. I need a little more protein in breakfasts. I should have added some fruit to the mix. Lesson learned!
LUNCH – With Lent still around, I needed some fish in my life! Whole Foods is running a sale on sushi on Fridays, which is great because I love their sushi! It’s simple, fresh and usually involves avocado! Yes please. I normally go for tuna and avocado or salmon avocado. I decided to switch it up today and go with a shrimp tempura. When I go out to dinner at a sushi place, I love caterpillar rolls and shrimp tempura, so I was excited! Unfortunately, I was a little disappointed. Tempura is better if purchased before it’s made. Good note!
I was so ready to come home and do nothing with the man! I inhaled some snacks of Pringles and popcorn immediately upon arrival.
We had plans to sit on the couch and watch a movie. I was hoping for Pitch Perfect, but that’s not what he wanted to watch. Then, we saw To Rome with Love. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZcip9HY1Pw
I have to admit, I’m not a huge fan of Woody Allen movies, mostly because he’s married to his step-daughter, but this one was great! The characters spoke in Italian, the scenery was gorgeous and Alec Baldwin is definitely sexy! (Note: If you watch 30 Rock, that’s the Alec Baldwin I love. Not the real life Alec!) The movie was Love Actually -esque, where it followed around several different story lines, but none of it made that much sense. But, anything about Rome I’ll watch!
DINNER – We split a bottle of Malbec in order of the new Pope and had some cheese ravioli! We ate Buitoni Four Cheese Ravioli with sauce – I had alfredo sauce and the man had marinara! The wine hit the spot and it was great to just snuggle up on the couch with wine watching Rome! Perfection.
