144.4 yesterday; Pizza & Cake – Not Just For Kids
Saturday night my husband and I went to a Valentine’s Day party at my husband’s friend’s house. Before I got ready I snacked on some Wheat Thins and cheddar cheese.
The party was a potluck. I brought my famous “Crack Brownies” which were devoured immediately. I ate some random stuff for dinner but the best was the dessert.
Bad photo but someone brought the most fabulous cookies ever. There were several different kinds so I broke off a piece of each to try. My favorite was a S’mores flavor that had marshmallow in the middle. We didn’t know a ton of people at the party so we didn’t stay too late.
Yesterday morning I got up to get dressed and packed for Los Angeles. I ate an egg beater sandwich on a toasted English muffin.
On my way to LA, I stopped at Starbucks for a latte.
My first event of the day was a friend’s baby shower at the Soho House in West Hollywood. I had never been there and the views of LA were incredible! I was greeted with champagne as soon as I arrived.
When it was time to sit down to eat, we were served some delicious baked goods to start.
As well as a lovely platter of fresh fruit.
The scone with their homemade orange jelly was out of this world.
Our entree was several different dishes served family style.
Mushroom and goat cheese quiche, beet salad, salmon with roasted veggies an French toast. Everything was wonderful!
As my friend opened her gifts, we all were served cake.
Can’t say no to cake right!?! :)
The second event of the day was celebrating my sister in law’s birthday with my brother and my parents. I headed over to there house and we all enjoyed some wine together before trying to figure out what we wanted to eat for dinner. Someone had mentioned pizza and then I knew that’s exactly what I wanted. But not just any pizza….an old school favorite of my family’s when we were little: Shakey’s Pizza. We all hopped in the car and headed to Shakey’s, giddy with excitement.
I had made a salad from the salad bar to start.
Then we all split two different pizzas. Pizza number one: Pepperoni and Jalapenos:
Pizza number two: onions, green peppers and mushrooms:
I didn’t manage to get the picture before my dad starting attacking it. :)
After stuffing ourselves with pizza goodness, we came home for birthday cake!
After that I was officially stuffed and went to bed.
This morning I got dressed and ate a couple pieces of raisin toast with peanut butter before hitting the road back to San Diego.
I picked up my daughter from school and came home to have lunch.
Tuna sandwich, jalapeno Popchips and grapes.
I am going to pick up my son from school and come home to get ready for Bunco at my friend Dina’s house. I’m not going to stay for long because I have my surgery (nothing serious-don’t worry!) tomorrow.
This will be my last post for several days. My friends are so kind to sign up to bring me meals later this week so hopefully I’ll get photos of all the delicious eats they bring me! Wish me luck!
To keep me entertained for the next several days, tell me your most embarrassing moment. :)
