149.0...Sadly, Spring Break is Over
Last Wednesday after my son’s basketball game (they won!), we went to Westroot Tavern for a quick dinner to celebrate my husband’s birthday.
I had this fish tacos. I liked them better the last time I had them.
My son went to a friend’s house and I took my daughter to get our nails done. We went to Crust Pizzeria for lunch. I had the half sandwich and salad.
The Rolando sandwich (genoa salami, mortadella, hot cappacola, provonello cheese, lettuce, heirloom tomatoes, shaved onion, pepperoncinis, roasted peppers, Italian dressing) and a Caesar salad. It was just ok. I was still sick so maybe food wasn’t tasting right.
Dinner was easy spaghetti and marinara.
My son was with his friends for the day so my daughter and I drove to South Coast Plaza for some shopping. We had lunch at Quattro Cafe.
I had my favorite thing there: Prosciutto and Arugula Pizza.
That evening we met my husband and his company at the Anaheim Ducks hockey game. I had a burger for dinner.
After the game, we all got to play some broom ball!
I actually participated and it was fun. My daughter loved it too!
I wasn’t feeling good still on Saturday. I spent most of the day in bed. I think I had a turkey sandwich for lunch but didn’t take a picture.
We did end up going to Alicia and Joe’s for dinner. They brought Piacere Mio in and I had my favorite pasta there: Pappardelle Wild Boar:
It’s so good! I can’t order anything else there!
Another day spent at home. Last day of spring break!
Lunch was a turkey sandwich, chips and pickles:
For dinner we went to Benihana to properly celebrate my husband’s birthday.
One of my favorite meals.
I was not ready to get up that early after being on spring break for the past two weeks. It was rough. I took the kids to school and went to the gym to meet my trainer. First workout in a week. Ugh.
I went to Trader Joe’s and came home. I brought some Reduced Guilt Chicken Salad there to make a sandwich for lunch.
Yuck. It tasted terrible to me. Won’t buy that again.
For dinner I bought Trader Joe’s Kung Pao Chicken.
Now that was good! I made some rice to go with it and had a bit of my husband’s Thai food leftovers too.
After I dropped the kids off I went to spin class. Then it was off to a Phillis Carey cooking class! The class was “Spring Dinners”.
The first “dinner” was Chicken Breasts with Asparagus, Mushrooms and Cherry Tomatoes in a Boursin Cheese Sauce with Orzo:
Really good! I mean, Boursin cheese sauce? How could that be bad?
The second “dinner” was Sage and Pecan Crusted Pork Cutlets with Blackberry Drizzle and Haricot Verts and Smoked Gouda Grits:
Loved the pork. Great crunchy crust!
The final “dinner” was Pepper Crusted Steaks with a Strawberry Zinfandel Sauce and Orange Mustard Aioli with Apple Spinach Salad with Citrus Vinaigrette:
Unique and good! The aioli was excellent.
Dessert was Blueberry Cheesecake Galette:
Last night I went to Lisa’s house for Bunco. It was a small group so it was nice just chatting and catching up. Dinner was Italian!
She had three types of sauces (marinara, pesto, alfredo) so of course I had to have them all. She also made delicious cannoli!!
I went to Orange Theory after taking the kids to school.
I came home and knocked out some to-do’s on my list. Lunch was another turkey sandwich, chips and pickles.
Debating a much needed car wash this afternoon. My son has a basketball game tonight then it’s off to bed! I can’t wait until I feel 100% again.
