Hi everyone! I hope you had a nice weekend! I had a nice Friday night and Saturday, but unfortunately came down with something on Saturday night. Let’s get to it!
On Friday, Chris and I met some friends at BreadSoda in Glover Park. BreadSoda usually isn’t my favorite because its kind of dark (it is underground), but I had a great time on Friday!! We spent the evening chatting and I was in bed by midnight. Perfect evening!
I spent Saturday looking for a summer job and doing some homework – fun stuff! I had some of my white chicken chili for lunch. I almost forgot to snap a picture so here is my half eaten bowl ;).
A little later in the day I decided to go ahead and get my long run out of the way for the weekend. I did five miles on the treadmill and they felt surprisingly good! I wish I could have done them outside, but it was dark by the time I decided to run so I settled for the treadmill instead.
Chris and I were craving sushi and decided to get delivery from Cafe Asia. Before dinner arrived I heated up some edamame – I was starving from my run! I like to keep bags of shelled edamame in the freezer. It is packed with protein and the bags are only two dollars!
It was delicious, but unfortunately about 45 minutes later I became violently ill. I don’t know if it was just a bug or if it was food poisoning. Either way it was not fun. Chris went out and got some Gatorade and medicine to help me get back on my feet. I fell asleep a few hours after downing the medicine. I’m okay now, but I don’t think I’ll be eating sushi again anytime soon. I am so glad I got my long run in for the week before I got sick!
I woke up on Sunday and was terrified to eat anything too heavy. So here’s what Chris had! I had dry toast. Chris had a ham, egg, and grilled cheese sandwich – one of my specialties! He said it was great.
I spent Sunday doing laundry and working. Sometimes it is nice to have a quiet and productive weekend!
In the afternoon I wanted to try to eat something besides toast so I cooked brown rice in chicken broth. I always cook rice and quinoa in chicken broth – it is so much better! My rice hit the spot! It was served with a side of Food and Drug Law reading.
For dinner, I made a big pot of quinoa and roasted some butternut squash. I read that butternut squash was easy to digest so I thought that would be a good idea on my iffy stomach. I also made pork chops so Chris could have one – we’re having the other two tonight!
I served my quinoa and butternut squash with some homemade hummus and a little greek yogurt so I could try to get some good bacteria in my stomach. I was happy that this meal agreed with me!
Chris and I spent the rest of the night watching the Grammys and our new addiction – True Detective! Have you all watched True Detective yet? It is great!
I have a super busy week ahead so I better get to it!! I hope you all have a great week and a great weekend if I don’t get back to you before then! Don’t forget about my Buffalo Chicken Meatballs if you need an appetizer for the Super Bowl!
