A ‘Night Out’

Good Morning! Michael and I are up bright and early this Sunday morning to get ready for CrossFit at 9:30am. Waking up at 7:00am to eat breakfast wasn’t my favorite thing, but I’m sure I’ll be glad we did it after our workout. The numerous glasses of wine I had last night would like to argue that last statement, but I’m hanging in there.

I planned for yesterday to be a day full of running errands, cleaning, and eating Mickey Mouse shaped Paleo pancakes. It started out with good intentions, we even got our grocery shopping done, but that cleaning idea never got off the ground. Instead we perused online wedding invitation designs, ate some delicious chicken sausages from 4505 meats, and fell asleep on the couch for an hour around 3. When we woke up from our lazy afternoon siesta, it was already time to get ready to meet Marian and her boyfriend, Andrew, downtown for some sushi and card games. Eating food that I didn’t have to cook was kind of ridiculously amazing. It was so good that I forgot to snap a pic – sorry!


We had a great time last night just chatting about nonsense and playing cards. It’s funny how your description of a ‘night out’ changes as you get older and more boring. Five years ago we would have headed to a bar after playing a few games, but instead we headed straight home and went to sleep. I much prefer the latter.

Alright, moving on to some food related topics. We have a couple of short cooking weeks coming up because of some Labor Day vacation activities. We’ll be heading out for a 5 day weekend to visit my family back in the muggy Midwest on Friday morning. I’m so excited! Not only do I get to spend some much needed time with my fam, but we also get to take another break from the kitchen. Two of my favorite things. :)

Here’s our shortened menu for the week:

B: Bacon, Sausage, and Veggie Omelette
L: Turkey Club Wraps

    LOVE Card Games! What is 40 Below like? I was recently introduced to Dutch Blitz, and it’s the best!! I am a board game/card girl, so if I can spend the night in with friends playing games, my night is complete! :D
