It’s amazing how fast a week flies by! Let’s get caught up….
Last Wednesday night I heated up some Slow Cooker Chicken & Dumpling Soup that I had pulled out of the freezer.
It reheated perfectly!! Need to make this again!
I took the kids to school, then went to the gym. I came home to get some stuff done around the house, then headed out to run some errands. I stopped for lunch at The Green Spot Salad Company and had my usual Ginger Ahi Bowl.
They were out of brown rice this time so I went with their wild rice/quinoa blend which was good too.
My daughter had a tennis lesson that afternoon. Afterwards we went to Firenze for dinner. I ordered a Caesar salad with salmon which was very good!
I took the kids to school, then to the gym for a run on the treadmill.
I went to Sushi on the Rock for lunch with Alicia. Miso soup:
Tuna, salmon and yellowtail nigiri:
Firecracker and Nighthawk Rolls;
Weekly sushi fix complete.
The kids had cotillion that night so we stopped for dinner at Leucadia Pizza in between. I ordered the Greek Salad with Shrimp:
Saturday’s breakfast was a bit different. I decided to have peanut butter on cinnamon raisin Ezekiel bread.
I made it to the gym for an hour. My son went golfing with my husband and my daughter had a friend over so I took them to Pizza Rev for lunch.
Seriously one of my favorite meals.
That evening we went to a fundraiser with some friends for a board my husband is on. The event was held at the Hyatt Regency in La Jolla. The evening was complete with dinner and dancing. Our meal started out with a tomato and mozzarella salad:
That was followed by salmon for dinner:
Dessert was hard to pass up. Cute little jars with different treats inside:
Then, somehow, my friend Yamia and I ended up dancing on stage. It was definitely and entreating evening!
We headed to Los Angeles for my niece’s baptism. Following we all had a late lunch at Sol Cocina in Playa Vista. We shared everything family style: guacamole, chips, salad, taquitos and various tacos. The food was really good!
Our meal ended with a fantastic lemon cake from Susie Cakes!
Afterwards we drove back to San Diego.
I went to the gym, followed by a meeting. I stopped for lunch at Urban Plates.
Albacore, Brussels Sprouts and Miso Mushrooms and Sweet Potatoes.
Dinner that night was easy. I defrosted a chicken meatball from a previous Firenze visit and added it to some whole wheat penne, sautéed zucchini and marinara:
I took the kids to school, went to an appointment, then the gym. Next up was a cooking class taught by Phillis Carey at the La Jolla Community Center. It had been awhile since I’d been to one! This class was “Sensational Shrimp” and was all about different shrimp recipes, obviously!
The first recipe was Sautéed Shrimp Cocktail with Avocados, Tomatoes, Olives and Fresh Lime:
This was delicious! I think I could eat a vat of it!
The second recipe was Tequila Lime Shrimp Pasta with Feta Cheese:
This was good but a bit tangy for my tastes. I did enjoy the feta on it though!
Next up was Thai Lemon Shrimp Toss with Sweet Chili Sauce, Coconut Milk, Lime Leaves and Jasmine Rice:
This was amazing. So easy to throw together and tasted fabulous!
The last shrimp recipe was Shrimp and Tomato Risotto with Fresh Basil:
I really enjoyed this one too. Very comforting.
Of course there was a yummy dessert. Blackberry-Ripple Lime Cheesecake:
This might be one of the best cheesecakes I’ve ever had! The recipe calls for sweetened condensed milk instead of sugar and made a huge difference in the creaminess!
Last night was Bunco at Dina’s house. There was an amazing spread of Persian food to enjoy! One of my favorites!
I had two plates that looked like this one:
I wasn’t planning on eating dessert but it’s hard to say no when it looks like this:
Such a nice time catching up with my friends!! Thanks Dina!
Breakfast this morning:
I took the kids to school, then went to Orange Theory. The treadmill portion of the class was the hardest one yet!
I picked up Marketplace Grill’s Grilled Chicken Greek Salad for lunch to eat at home while I got some work done.
Have a great rest of your day!
If you had to pick one type of cuisine to eat the rest of your life, what would it be? Italian for me!
