On Saturday night we met some friends for dinner at Del Mar Rendezvous. I had the Chef’s Shrimp Sauté with brown rice:

Afterwards we went to Yogurtland. I couldn’t help myself this time.

Sunday’s breakfast:

We went to the Chargers game. I had the make-your-own nacho bowl without the chips or cheese. It was just a bowl of pollo asado, refried beans, salsas and pickled jalapeños.

My husband wasn’t feeling well so we left early. Doesn’t matter anyway, the Chargers ended up losing to the Raiders. Big surprise.

We decided to have Milton’s for dinner. I wasn’t super hungry so just opted for chicken noodle soup.  No one felt like picking it up so we gave UberEats a try. An hour later, our food arrived. It was spectacular.

You see, there aren’t many delivery options where I live, so this is a fun new find for sure!!

This morning I had to get some blood work done so I couldn’t eat before. I brought this Kirkland bar with me to eat afterwards.

I went to the gym to get my workout in, then ran some errands. Lunch was the rest of the chicken noodle soup, cheese and crackers.

Dinner is in the slow-cooker and I’m getting stuff done around the house. A productive day!

How often do you use your slow-cooker?

Was the soup still warm? I'm considering finally caving and trying these food delivery services. I hear great things about door dash and postmates too.

We ordered soup and it was warm but I wanted it warmer so I threw it in the microwave. Not sure how other dishes would be though....
