2/14/12 - Valentine's Food Journal
I came downstairs to the Mr with a playful smile on his face pulling out my chair at the dining room table to a breakfast he made me so we could eat together. (He's usually finishing up by the time I come down)
Breakfast was Thomas Triple Health English Muffin, 2 slices of Land o Frost Deli Ham, an egg and a slice of American cheese. (I haven't made it like that in a long time and it was yummy!) Plus a banana for some fruit. It was nice to be able to eat together and to have a meal prepared for me for once! Thanks honey!
Mid-morning "snack" was the equivalent to an Hershey's miniature Special Dark as I was dipping the Mr some strawberries for his lunch tomorrow. Eating with the Mr was about 2 hours prior to when I usually eat and I was getting SOO hungry by mid-morning I just could NOT resist the chocolate sticking to the spoon so I recorded it like a good girl! :-)
Lunch was brown rice with corn, peas, spinach and 3 1/2 oz of chicken breast and 2 tbsp of Trader Ming's General Tsao's sauce. Fruit salad (cantaloupe, pineapple, grapes and watermelon), Golden Delicious apple with apple dip, a Trader Joe's Apple bar and iced tea. (No raw veggies today since there's veggies in my rice)
The Mr came home and I blared Outkast's Happy Valentine's Day and we danced like fools and he gave me these:
The note read "everyday's the 14th" as the song blasted. Are we made for each other or what?
Dinner was the wonderful chicken cordon bleu burgers I made a few weeks ago but I subbed 1/3 of an ounce of asiago and added caramelized onions and 1 tbsp bbq sauce with spicy sweet potato fries. T'was yummilicious.
Our special Valentines Day dessert will be the cuppy cakes I made yesterday (which by the way were a HUGE hit at the Mr's work. His boss doesn't even eat sweets and he had two!). I'll top the Mr's with a chocolate dipped strawberry for an extra special treat for him.
Calories for the day: 2150. Did a double workout to burn 1070 calories to accommodate the cupcake.
Now time to watch In Time with Justin Timberlake and pray it doesn't suck, then watch the season premiere of Cougar Town on DVR. (Can I get a "penny caaaaaaaaan" from the few people who get the reference?) Then Dream House with Daniel Craig if the Mr can stay awake that long.
Happy Valentines Day ya'll...everyday's the 14th!
