Hey, friends! I’m pretty tired this morning because I stayed up past my bedtime watching the Golden Globe awards last night. There are certain days of the year (like award show days) that I have wonderful fantasies about being a rich and famous actress. <sigh>. A girl can dream….
As far as my weekend went, it was relaxed and mostly uneventful. Here are some of my favorite eats from the weekend:
My first visit to a Korean restaurant on Friday, courtesy of my co-worker, Kyle. He lived in Korea for a year and managed to convince me that Korean food is freakin’ amazing. Seriously, whatever they put in that red pepper sauce is incredible.
Breakfast burritos Saturday and Sunday, courtesy of Chef Riley.
Italian sub crescent bake, also courtesy of Chef Riley. He made a giant baked sandwich filled with salami, jalapeno, ham, turkey, provolone, and italian seasoning.
I went for a 4.5 mile run through Colonial Williamsburg Sunday morning. It rained all day Saturday so it was nice to get outside and get some fresh air! The town was all wintry and deserted looking (aside from the colonial people and the old church-goers), but running through the old streets was still really enjoyable.
I also did some meal planning, which I was super proud of. I never plan meals and my husband recently pointed out just how little cooking I’ve actually done in the past month. I officially feel wife-shamed (luckily, Riley doesn’t actually care who cooks, as long as he doesn’t have to clean). On tap this week:
- Tilapia with a lemon butter sauce and capers, served with quinoa
- Slow cooker beef stew
- Chicken alfredo
- Homemade pizza
I’ll keep you updated on how much I stick to the plan, but I consider it a victory that I even made one to begin with!
On another note, this weekend I finished my 3-week long marathon of Gossip Girl. It was sad and a relief all at the same time. The problem with marathoning shows (which I’m very prone to doing) is that once it’s over it’s such a disappointment. I just can’t let go, so I end up watching blooper reels and behind the scenes clips on You Tube just to exhaust all possible exposure to the show. I’ve done it with multiple shows so this is not new. I ended up buying myself a new book yesterday so I can now redirect my energy, thank goodness.
That about covers my weekend adventures (or lack thereof). I’ve got a busy week coming up. In Admission-Land, this week is early “letter week”, which means my phone will ring off the hook with parents asking why their kids didn’t get into our school. It sucks, so I’m hoping I’ll get to call a couple of kids who DID get in just to spread some cheer around!
Happy Monday and I can’t wait to catch up with you later!
Have you ever had Korean food? I never had until Friday, but I’m a huge fan now!
Any good weekend workouts? I took a rest day Saturday, but did a 4.5 mile run and a 30-minute walk with Bella on Sunday.
How do you let go of a series when you become obsessed for weeks on end? I really need help in this area. One of my tactics is to get as many friends as possible roped into the same show so I have someone to talk about it with!
