Hi everyone! I hope you had a nice weekend! Chris and I had a nice and rainy weekend here in DC. The sun is finally supposed to peak out this afternoon and I am so excited! I don’t think we’ve seen the sun since last Monday!
After a rainy Friday, I decided to make some chili for Chris and I to enjoy at home.
I defrosted some ground beef, threw in some tomatoes, spices, onion, green pepper, and beans. This was actually really delicious! I wrote down the recipe I created so that I can hopefully share it here in the future! We topped ours with creamy greek yogurt and shredded cheddar cheese. It really hit the spot!
Chris and I decided to continue our rainy night in and rented Now You See Me. I wasn’t sure that I would like the movie, but I ended up really enjoying it!
Chris and I were up early on Saturday morning after our low-key evening, which is a win in my opinion! I did work for most of the morning and then headed down to our gym for a 6 mile run on the treadmill! I wasn’t originally planning on 6 miles, but Enemy of the State was on the gym TV and it was holding my attention so I check chugging along!
I was absolutely starving after my run so I immediately had a snack when I got back to my apartment. I cut up a Honeycrisp apple (the BEST!) and mixed together some greek yogurt and peanut butter. I love apples with peanut butter and greek yogurt with peanut butter, so I figured this would be a great combo. It was such an awesome snack! I really liked my “apple dippers” and can quickly see this becoming a new go-to snack. It is a good way to get the peanut butter flavor while keeping calories and fat low!
After cleaning up, Chris and I headed into Georgetown to meet up with some friends. We had dinner at Pizza Paradiso on M St. Chris and I love this place and our friends really liked it as well! We sat downstairs, which is really cozy and even has a fireplace. However, the lighting isn’t great so I didn’t take pictures. Lucky for you guys, Chris and I are creatures of habit and ordered the exact same meal we had on this evening. Click over to check it out! It was superb again!!! I love that salad and the spicy Atomica pizza!!
After dinner, our group of seven headed down the road to see Captain Phillips! I really, really enjoyed Captain Phillips! I love Tom Hanks anyway and he did such a wonderful job in this movie. The Somalian actors were awesome too. I highly recommend seeing it! I even teared up at the end – great acting Tom!!
On Sunday morning, Chris and I were up relatively early again. I made myself a smoothie for breakfast and I made Chris another breakfast sandwich! The color of my smoothie isn’t as pretty because I made my usual blueberry smoothie, but I added some spinach into the mix. While the color wasn’t great, the flavor definitely was! This kept me full late into the afternoon.
Chris and I headed to the grocery store mid-day and then came home to watch football. One of Chris’ friends from high school recently moved to Arlington, so we had him over to watch with us. I made a quick and easy chili dip and Chris made his infamous guacamole. Both were hits!
We spent most of the day watching football and catching up – a fun way to spend another gray afternoon!
For dinner, the three of us headed over to Tom Yum District. Chris and I wanted to give it another try and I am glad we did! This time I had brown rice, steak, lots of veggies, and the Tom Yum sauce. It was delicious!! Chris really liked his too. I can definitely see many dinners in our future at Tom Yum District – it is so convenient, cheap, and fresh!
After dinner, Chris and I watched the Season Premiere of The Walking Dead! Any other Walking Dead fans out there? What did you think of the premiere? It looks like this season should be interesting!!
I hope you all have a wonderful week!!
