144.0…A Lunch Date

It was another freezer meal last night for dinner. I’m finally making a dent in there! Last night’s dinner was Turkey Taco Bake, corn, refried beans and salsa.

I tried a new product for breakfast this morning. I received a sample of Cascadian Farm’s Dark Chocolate Almond Granola at the Rock n Roll Marathon’s Expo and finally got around to trying it!

I put it on some Fage yogurt with strawberries.

Holy yum!! This granola was delicious! Perfectly crunchy and a tad sweet from the small dark chocolate pieces. I may have to purchase this!

I took my son to school and came home to get some packing done for our upcoming cruise. It’s amazing how much stuff you have to pack for 2 adults and 2 kids for ten days.

I hopped in the car to go to Target and on the way received a text from my husband that said: “Want to go to Firenze for lunch?” Um, is the sky blue!?! Firenze is my favorite restaurant. I promptly turned the car around and headed home to meet my lunch date!

They had some lunch specials that included a salad for an extra charge. I usually order the Chopped Caesar salad but that wasn’t one of the options so I tried something new.

Insalata Firenze:

Very fresh and the dressing was light and delicious. I still prefer the Chopped Caesar.

For my entree I ordered the Linguine with Clams…..an old favorite.

Awesome as usual.

I picked up my son from school and drove to the automatic car wash. They had never been through one (except when they were babies) so I thought it would be fun. We waited our turn and turn the car wash broke. Major bummer.

How often do you wash your car?

Do you order the same thing when you eat somewhere specific or do you like to try new things?


  1. That salad looks totally appetizing to me right now.
    I never wash my car. I know that's horrible, but I never have time, and I don't think about it when I do have time. So lame.

  2. I wish I got to eat lunch with my husband!!! =) so cute to have an impromptu date <3


  3. if I find something I like at a restaurant I usually keep ordering it

  5. Love the new look of your blog. The linguine with clams has me drooling.

  6. The granola sounds delicious! Once I find something I like, I always order the same. Otherwise I get mad when I try something new and it's not as good.

  7. OK, don't die, but I only wash my car like once every six months! My car is a piece, so I don't bother making the dents show up better by washing it. hahaha! I always use the automatic car wash, though.
