Yesterday seemed to fly by!
I deemed yesterday “HOMEWORK DAY”. I sat down at my desk at 11AM, and didn’t move until 5PM. I got a ton of stuff done, which makes me feel a lot better about the quickly approaching end of the semester.
I’m officially out of smoothie ingredients, which meant the return of my favorite b-fast combo. A toasted whole wheat bagel thin with peanut butter and banana slices, served with a side of sliced strawberries.
Sometimes, when I get in the “zone” of doing work, I forget about eating! A rarity, but it happens. Today was the perfect example of that, because my lunch was about as exciting as this:
I finished off the last (told you it would be gone by the next day!) of the Greek Orzo Salad. I don’t know why I find it so hard to eat this off an actual plate.
I had plans to make a really healthy dinner, but then my handsome fiance walked through the door with an armful of to-go boxes, just for me!
His parents took him to dinner at Tibby’s while I was at class, and they were nice enough to order me a dinner to-go. Corey picked out a chicken and rice dish with artichokes and sundried tomatoes (he knows me so well 🙂 ).
I served myself one of the chicken breasts and a portion of rice, and chopped it all up, like I always do:
It was so good. I love the combo of artichokes and sundried tomatoes on anything.
When I called Corey earlier to see where he was, all he said was, “I’ll be home soon. I just ate my weight in shrimp ‘n’ grits.” He brought home some of the infamous shrimp ‘n’ grits for me to try.
Maybe he meant “shrimp ‘n’ grease”? I had a bite, but it just wasn’t my kind of dish. Way too spicy!
When Corey and I had lunch at Tibby’s before, we noticed that every table was ordering beignets- a New Orleans traditional dessert- which is basically fried dough and powdered sugar. (Yes, I googled how to spell it.) We didn’t order them while we were there, but Corey brought one home for me this time!
I popped it in the ‘wave for a few seconds, and it was to die for. Fried + powdered sugar? Can’t go wrong.
What is your favorite to-go dinner from a restaurant?
