Back To School Shopping
The husband and I went shopping together – what fun! We both got much-needed jeans at Kohl’s. It’s funny how I tried on about 10 pairs of expensive Seven For All Mankind jeans last week and none of them fit and today the first pair of $29 jeans fit perfectly. Does that mean I’m not shaped like a designer model!?
I also got 2 pairs of pants at Old Navy and some cute zip bags for back-to-school.
*Note that I did not buy any sweaters or buttondowns 8)
By the time we were done shopping it was nearing 2:30 and we hadn’t had lunch yet!
Lunch was bigger than I wanted because I didn’t plan well. Well, I did plan but then the husband made plantains and I had to have some!
But before we get to dessert: we are low on sandwich materials, and since I didn’t have PB or banana for breakfast, this was the first thing to come to mind for lunch= PB + B Quesadilla. I folded over a whole wheat tortilla and slathered one side with 1 tbsp of PB and the other with banana slices. I added a little honey too and toasted it in a skillet. Mmmmmmmmmm
I was also required to eat this grapefruit, which was on its last days. It was a good one! He was huge so I split him with the husband:
Lastly, I had whipped cottage cheese (1/2 c) with jam and graham sticks. Yum!
All served on a pretty white platter for roughly 500 kcal:
I mentioned the plantain – the husband sliced 2 small ripe ones that we got at the Fresh Market yesterday and baked them for about 15 minutes and then broiled for another 3-5. Fantastic! We both agreed that they turned out better than any sweet potato fries we’ve made. I drizzled mine with 1 tsp of maple syrup; he covered his in hot sauce. I see a good Kath Eats Plantain Chips video coming out of this!!
I didn’t weigh the plantain so I’m just guessing on calories here, but CK says “90 kcal per half cup of slices” so that’s about what I had.
I’m planning a walk (to Blockbuster), my stats homework (already!), unpacking more antiques from my car, and a yummy grilled dinner TBA.
