So last night the husband surprised me by taking me out to dinner. He wouldn't tell me where we were going so it was an even bigger surprise when we ended up at my favorite restaurant: Firenze! It was half price wine night so we split a bottle of cab. A very happy girl:

We started with the usual: chopped Caesar salad.....oh it's sooooo good!

For my entree, I tried something new: Rigatoni alla Vodka e Fungi except that I substituted the Rigatoni for linguine....I really don't like short cuts of pasta for whatever reason. Verdict: muy excelente!!!!!

I went to sleep a happy camper.....until my daughter woke up screaming at 3AM...I think she's becoming scared of the dark. She did go back to sleep but I couldn't. Argh......this morning coffee was on the agenda first thing. I didn't take a picture of my breakfast because my camera was upstairs and I was too lazy to get it. At least I'm honest right? For the curious, I had a slice of Ezekiel toast with peanut butter and honey with a side of strawberries.
After lunch I went for a three mile run. The first mile was almost entirely uphill. Then I walked for a half mile and ran the final two home. It felt really good.
Then hubby and I went to Subway for lunch. Turkey on wheat with the works:

Then we made a much needed trip to Costco. My husband was so kind to buy me my Hanukkah gift there....a new Acer notebook computer. I'm typing on it right now. It's so small and cute. I'm in love.
I came home and began working on my daughter's third birthday party which is coming up next month. I set up the party place, ordered her invitations and her gifts.....I felt very accomplished!!
Dinner was a new recipe for Spanish Chicken and Rice.

I thought it was pretty good but the husband didn't really care for it. I put the leftovers in the freezer for a night when he isn't home for dinner. :)

That's about all I have to report on. Happy Tuesday everyone!
