• Lots of Dining Out {Weekend Recap}

    February 10, 2014

    Good morning! Happy Monday!

    Did the weekend fly by for anyone else? I feel like I was just shutting down my computer on Friday afternoon, and here I am typing away once again. Weekend time warp.

    The past couple of days were definitely a whirlwind, but for a good reason: quality time and meals with friends! Basically, I did a lot of dining out this weekend.

    • Friday night: Dinner at Margaritas with a huge group of hometown friends for a birthday celebration.
    • Saturday morning: Brunch with friends at Johnny D’s in Davis Square. Followed by an amazing almond latte from Diesel Café.
    • Saturday night: Dinner with friends at Legal C Bar in Hingham. The “Bang Bang Cauliflower” was incredible, and I’m on a mission to recreate it this week.


    A couple of posts I’ve written about dining out:

    Yesterday morning, I woke up bright and early for Open Gym at CrossFit.

    Mal and I missed “Fight Gone Bad” (FGB) the day before, so we decided to do the workout at Open Gym together.

    I hadn’t done FGB since I first started CrossFit (almost 2 years ago), so I was excited to see if I had improved—and I did! Almost 20 reps! My box jumps were so slow (it’s so much harder to jump with extra weight), but everything else felt pretty good.

    24 weeks! Definitely pregnant.

    After CrossFit, Mal and I swung home to get Murphy to take him to the park for a doggie playdate with Bentley and Lulu.

    After that, I did a quick grocery shopping at Stop & Shop. I’m trying to mix it up with our weekly shopping because Whole Foods gets really expensive. I love Whole Foods so much, and I still end up there a few times a week, but a big grocery shopping at Stop & Shop or Trader Joe’s is quite a bit more friendly on my wallet.

    After eating out all weekend, I was more than ready to plan a healthy week of home-cooked meals. Of course, I love dining out, but after a lot of restaurant (or even take-out) meals, it definitely gets to a point where I’m ready to get back to my normal eating habits, ya know?

    This week’s meal plan:

    We usually never eat out, but if we do it usually involves getting sushi from the sushi guys at the grocery store 🙂

    We’ve been getting take out a lot more than I’d like. As a new mom, there has been a big adjustment and sometimes, I cannot find the energy to go to the store and cook. Oh well…a goal to continue working on.
