Isn’t it crazy that it is the middle of October and it was 85 degrees out today and we currently have the air conditioner running at 10PM? And yes, I know I live in Los Angeles and this is normal weather, but I was just getting used to wearing my boots and sweaters and now suddenly I am thrown back into shorts and tanks. In other news, I am really excited because my best girlfriend from college, Tina, is coming into town tomorrow for a quick 48 hour trip. We haven’t hung out since her wedding almost one year ago. She is vegan/gluten-free, so I am racking my brain for fun places to take her. Suggestions are welcome!
Since today is Wednesday, let’s get into my food for my weekly “What I Ate Wednesday” post:
Breakfast – 8:45AMCoach’s Oats with Almond Butter and Raspberries (the usual yumminess)
Lunch – 1:30PMFor lunch, my boss and I ordered from the Cheesecake Factory. I got the skinny chicken tacos. They were a little bland, but still good and I also got a side of chicken chili (unpictured since chili is not photogenic :)).For dessert, we got the oreo cheesecake… no explanation needed!
Dinner- 8:00PM I actually had dinner out with my best friend Ashlee at a wonderful restaurant called Marino’s, but failed to take pictures. Instead I wanted to share a meal we had earlier this week. My mom and I made salmon and “fried” rice in our rice cooker and served it alongside roasted eggplant. It was an amazingly easy meal from the cookbook, My Japanese Table and one we will definitely be making again.
I am so excited for Tina’s visit and to share with you the fun we have this weekend! Hope everyone is having a great week so far!
