Dinner last night was so good! We went to my favorite restaurant: Firenze. Before we left, I had a glass of wine at home:

I had a piece of bread with balsamic vinegar, olive oil and parmesan as soon as the bread basket arrived at the table:

More wine:

Our friends wanted to order a cheese plate for the table:

Mmmm.....cheese and wine!!!

Hubby and I split our normal salad: Chopped Caesar:
I ordered the Shrimp Casanostra for my entree (jumbo shrimp, mushrooms, asparagus and arugula sauteed with shallots, olive oil and white wine served over papardelle pasta):
I had mine with a red sauce because I had a hankering for it! :) So good! This was a new dish for me. Doesn't beat their Calamari Marinara but it came close!

Everyone was having dessert so how could I say no?? Hubby and I split the Chocolate Lava Cake:

Wine, cheese, chocolate, good friends....does it get any better than that?? I went to sleep a very happy camper!

Today when I woke up, I was ready to get back on track! Breakfast was a slice of Ezekiel toast with almond butter and a side of cantaloupe and strawberries:

I took the kids to camp and went to Cardio Muscle class and then Zumba. Way to burn a ton of calories!! Afterwards it was off to Subway (again!) for my turkey usual:
Subway was near all my errands today so it seemed to make sense even though I had it yesterday. I went to the dry cleaners, pharmacy, toy store (birthday gifts for some of my kid's friends, and the grocery store).

On the way to pick up the kids from camp, I snacked on some grapes:
After we got home, I had another snack: turkey slices wrapped around pickles:
I did a few loads of laundry and then my kids and I planted our vegetable garden. Let's hope I don't kill everything like I did last year! Here's to remembering to water them!

We took the kids to Pei Wei for dinner. The usual.....kid's size honey seared shrimp, brown rice and veggies:

We came home and jumped in the pool. It was a hot one today and the pool felt great! Afterwards, I broke into a new cereal for dessert:

I had mine with almond milk. It was pretty good...not the best cereal I've had but it will do. :)

Kids are in bed and I'm going to hop into mine too. :)
Doing anything fun this weekend?
