The boys did a GREAT job with dinner last night. They slaved over this meal all day, and all we had to do was show up! How lucky are we? When we arrived we were welcomed into their main foyer with cheese and crackers. After mingling for a while we were directed downstairs, where they had a long table set up with the “proper” plate and utensil arrangements and dinner was served….on paper plates with plastic forks and knives. Let me tell you it was SO difficult to cut that chicken in a graceful manner. It was such a thick piece of meat, I almost broke my knife and my fork pierced through my plate. So much for etiquette, but I think I probably ruined that when I took my phone out for pictures :). I didn’t really learn much about proper dining but it was fun to meet new people!
For an appetizer they had shrimp cocktail. There were a few plates like this on the table to share along with cocktail sauce. We were then given a first course of Caesar salad. The salad was extremely petite and a bit over dressed. I was having so much fun talking to my “date” that I only ended up having a few bites of this before the main course was served. For our main course we had chicken Marsala, roasted potatoes and steamed asparagus. This was the real selling point and “effort” of the meal and it was AMAZING. It was a huge piece of chicken but well-cooked, and the potatoes were so flavorful. For dessert we were all given full pieces of strawberry cheesecake. I forgot to take a picture so this is only my last bite’s worth of dessert. Needless to say I was excited about cheesecake and devoured the entire thing. I was a classy date.
For breakfast today I was inches away from making a green monster and granola bowl but decided that blender clean up was not worth it. I went back to something I haven’t had in a while: Kashi Go Lean Crunch, Soy Milk, Banana, Berries, Flax and Cinnamon. I use to eat this almost every day, especially in the summer months. You know what? It wasn’t as good as I remember it being, I’m disappointed in my breakfast choice today (hate that feeling!). I also had a big Fuji apple on the side, which I think made my stomach a bit upset! I’m having a rough start to my day.
I’m off to work, and couldn’t be happier because it is a rainy day. The bakery should be pretty busy this afternoon, and I can’t wait to have a little change of pace from school. I only have a week and a half left and I’m so excited to finally be finished.
What do you eat when you can’t decide what you are in the mood for? (For any meal/snack.)
