It’s coming down hard!!!! My afternoon wishes were granted… Scroll down for the weather girl video!
I started with more coffee, which made me totally jittery! I added a little creamer to this and had 2 cups.
I wasn’t that hungry since we were seated by 11:15, but I still made room 🙂
I ordered the Clifton Omelette: three large farm fresh eggs with goat cheese, mushrooms & fresh basil, topped with spicy tomato coulis. I got the tomato sauce on the side and requested 2 eggs and one egg white – because I never notice one missing.
The goat cheese was incredible! I hate half the omelet (the side with the most cheese!)
Of course I had a Flying biscuit. I ordered the whole wheat one, but we all agreed the regular ones were better (ie. doughier!). Kelsey got a regular and we spilt them half and half.
With a little cranberry-apple butter! I ate all of my regular half and about 2/3 of my WW half.
And lastly, my plate came with some fresh fruit, of which I ate 99%.
After (but subtract 1-2 more nibbles from that biscuit!)
Kelsey ordered an oatmeal pancake, which comes with a peach compote. I always debate between these pancakes and a biscuit (both are just too carb-heavy to feel good afterwards) and I always choose the biscuit – but love it when I can have some pancake bites! I had 3 good bites of this with a peach slice –
The Reader came next. It was a perfect day for a movie: cold and wet. I liked the movie a lot – it was emotional, somber and thought-provoking. Love Kate Winslet! I had a few beans during the movie.
We went to Trader Joe’s after the movie for a few items. While there we requested to sample the Sunflower Seed Butter!! It was delish, but I didn’t get any since I have enough open jars at the moment. It will def. go on my list. I also had a wine sample and cheddar cheese cube.
Once home (around 4pm and 4 hours post lunch) I had a bowl of strawberries (nuked) with about 1/3 cup TJ’s greek and a tsp flax –
It was still raining when we got home. About an hour later I heard thunder and saw a flash of lightening!! Next thing I knew there was snow on the ground!
Tonight’s dinner was Snicken Chicken baked with Carrots, Sweet Potato, Cremini Mushrooms and Fennel underneath.
While he baked, we watched more Office and sipped cocktails! He made this Manhattan and I had about 25% in sips. LOVE Manhattens!!!!
I also had a small sip of mead that he brewed before Xmas and opened to sample today –
We served the chicken over a bed of baby spinach along with the roasted veggies –
I had a leg and some breast meat
But the veggies were the best part!
After dinner, we frolicked!!!
Head’s up: I’m planning to make my trip announcement tomorrow AM!!!!!
