German, Asian and weekend eats
Guten morgen! (No idea why I lapsed into German, sorry 'bout that)
Our plans got cancelled for Saturday since one of our friends was sick. I'm glad we have at least one set of friends that are considerate enough to and I quote "not be a dick and come over and spread my germs." So since we found ourselves free, we wasted most of the morning then went looking for garage sales way too late in the day. We did go in to a tag sale but I think stuff was picked over by the time we got there. We've never been to one before so it felt kind of weird. We're pretty sure the lady died and it was like "here, let's rifle through her stuff before the relatives get here." If I had room anywhere I almost talked myself into a bookshelf for $12 that I would've repainted and distressed but I have nowhere to use it and no one I know needs one so had to pass that up. We went shopping a bit too. We headed to this Japanese market I've been wanting to check out.
I was hoping maybe they'd carry my roasted green tea for when I run out but no such luck. I always like perusing Asian markets, it makes me feel like I'm in Hawaii. Since we were the only crackers in the joint, the Mr looked like a scared tourist and I told him to stop holding his hands together like he's new to the experience. So funny...he's whiter than white sometimes.
Here's a peek of some of our eats this weekend.
I did a hybrid of my spicy chicken and pancakes and maple chipotle biscuits and gravy and made spicy chicken biscuits for us. I was craving Stouffers mac and cheese bad and this felt like naughty KFC. It was more calories than a typical day but we crafted our calorie bank around them so it's all good.
Sunday we had filet mignon on the grill and twice baked potato half with chipotle cheddar. Got it in just before the rain hit.
The Mr likes his like this.
I do not. Mine was a little over done, I like medium well but you cut into it and blood comes out and I'll yak. Bleh. He seemed to love it though.
I nailed the water this weekend. I really wanted to do well with that since I slacked last weekend and I did so woo hoo me!
We've got a dinner out tonight...I hate when you have to go somewhere at a sodium bomb restaurant and choose the least "bomby" of their offerings. But I have the calories and sodium as controlled as I can with the rest of my meals today.
That's about it on my end.
What did you do this weekend? How do you like your steak, if you imbibe in the occasional moo cow?
