Poor husband – we grilled out tonight and it’s below freezing! But we decided it didn’t make sense to broil everything, so grill it was. He didn’t even wear a coat because he reasoned the grill would keep him warm. I think he’s still thawing out.
This afternoon we walked to the grocery store – in 26* weather (yes, yes, I know it’s colder where YOU live!) to pick up a few things for the week. It was nice to get outside for a bit. Actually it wasn’t nice at all. My feet were completely numb by the time we’d walking 20 minutes to the shopping center. I need some furry boots! I felt like SUCH a hippie stuffing soy milk and swiss chard into a backpack to walk back in the cold. But I suppose it was worth it!
We finished off the Pinot we opened on Friday. It was better today than before! I had about 4 oz.
I also had some trail mix around 5:30 – I was too hungry to wait for dinner because I missed my snack while studying all afternoon.
On the menu were shrimp, eggplant, squash and pesto sandwiches on ciabatta along with grilled radicchio and bleu cheese. The bread was even better today!! Chewy and moist.
Open-faced with shrimp
Radicchio + Bleu cheese. The radicchio was quite bitter, but I just got over that. It’s better with a vinaigrette, but we were lazy and the bleu cheese was the perfect topping 🙂
I had 2 more oz of wine with dinner….
Dinner kcal were about 370 + wine = 530.
Check and Check!
I got SO MUCH studying done today!! And honestly it didn’t even feel like work. I really enjoyed working in the dining room with the sun shining in. And I decided to write a paper due on February 5th (Omnivore’s Dilemma) tonight on a whim – done and done! I do have more to do tomorrow, but it’s all stuff that doesn’t require much thinking 8)
