Good morning, my loverly luvahs.
I hope everyone’s week is going by super swiftly.
Yesterday was my first day in the office since we earned our real estate licenses, and our day was busy, busy, busy! My meal times weren’t too incredibly horrible, but they definitely could’ve been better, for sure. In my defense though, our family all went out for lunch and dinner together and the tab was picked up by others on both occasions, so I’m super grateful to have such amazing people in my life who feel the need to feed me. I’m most certainly not going to complain about getting to eat for free all day long.
Considering our options were an absolutely fabulous hole in the wall BBQ joint and a well known, tasty burger joint full of delicious yet unhealthy choices, I feel I made some pretty good decisions.
So, shall we begin?
Oh, and I bet you can’t guess what picture was taken with my DSLR
Breakfast: Blueberry Lemon Overnight Oat parfait that
was flipping *AH-MA-ZING*, and the recipe will
be posted tomorrow! It was so filling and delicious.
I also had a mug of coffee with 1 Nunaturals stevia packet and ice water.
Lunch: A hearty, warm, & delicious bowl of Brunswick stew which
is essentially a sweet and smoky pork and vegetable soup.
I also had one bite of the pictured BBQ sandwich which I
wrapped up and saved for the hubs to eat for lunch today.
That was all washed down with a couple of glasses of unsweet tea.
The hubs and I also shared a square of super thin and crunchy
cornbread which I really, really liked…
especially when dunked in that thick and hearty stew!
Snack: I had a handful of my nemesis, the roasted almond.
These little diddles are like frickin’ crack to me!
I have started weighing and making my own snack packs
because it is so, so hard for me to stop eating them right out of the bag.
I enjoyed these with my once a week can of Coke Zero and some ice water.
Supper: We went to Andy’s which serves the famous Orangeades
(we all know what my husband drank), and I had a root beer b/c
it just seemed like the right thing to do. I then ordered the smallest
cheeseburger they had with lettuce, pickles, ketchup & mustard,
my hubs got a chicken philly with mushrooms, green peppers, & cheese,
and then we shared a small order of french fries.
See? My choices weren’t all that bad. I could’ve gotten a grilled chicken sandwich instead of the burger, but I distinctly remember ordering one from there before and it ended up being that gross rubbery “chicken” that tastes like it’s pumped full of sodium and other nastiness, so I opted for the “always fresh, never frozen, made to order” burger instead.
That’s it for today! Don’t forget to stop by tomorrow for the overnight oat recipe!
