Hey there! Hope you have had a great weekend.
I started my Saturday off by going over to my friend’s house to pick up some vegetables from her garden. I had seen her Facebook status about coming home from her vacation to extra veggies and I kindly offered to take them off of her hands if she wasn’t going to be able to use them all.
How awesome is she?
I also had to take my bike back to the shop because it was still having issues changing gears.
I was kind of annoyed that the problem wasn’t fixed the first time, but the guys at the shop were super nice and fixed it for me while I waited.
I wanted to test it out in my neighborhood but it started pouring down rain the second I got outside. I also had originally planned to go out to a bike trail in Huntersville on Saturday but with the weather, that sounded like it would be a big, muddy mess. I did briefly spend some time on the treadmill in our complex, though.
K and I originally had a reservation at Pisces for Charlotte Restaurant Week on Saturday but ended up cancelling at the last minute. K got called in to work all day Saturday and between that and the cold/rainy weather, neither of us felt like heading to Midtown for a nicer dinner. We ended up keeping it casual and went to Hawthorne’s down the street from us.
I got one of my favorites, a grilled chicken bruschetta sandwich without the bun.
Sunday was all about food prep… trying to use up all of those garden vegetables. I have a few recipes coming soon
Oh, and I managed to remember to take pictures of all of my meals today…
Breakfast: PB&J smoothie (milk, peanut butter, banana and mixed berries). I felt stuffed after this!
Lunch: a sandwich made with love by K
A glass of milk in the afternoon
Meatballs and zucchini cakes for dinner
I will probably also have a snack later on tonight. Ice cream actually sounds really good For now, I am setting in for the evening for some Real Housewives and a glass of hot tea.
