(I guarantee this post title will make Theodora laugh!)
After CrossFit yesterday, Mal and I felt really lazy. I don’t know if it was all of those heavy kettlebell swings or what, but neither of us felt like putting in any effort to make lunch, even though we were both starving, so I suggested going out to eat. As soon as the words left my mouth, Mal’s face lit up. I guess we were on the same page about lunch!
We ended up going to Rustic Kitchen for lunch. Mal and I used to go here all the time, especially in the winter (the bar is so cozy), but we hadn’t been in awhile, so we were both excited to visit again.
Not that Rustic Kitchen ever had a bad menu, but I was happy to see some new items on it. The Spicy Tuna Burger immediately caught my attention.
It was served with an amazing basil avocado puree, which tasted so fresh and flavorful. I wonder if I could recreate it at home? Just blend fresh basil with avocado? It can’t be that hard. Anyway, lunch was really good and it definitely hit the spot. Great suggestion by me!
After lunch, I spent the rest of the afternoon cleaning the house and blogging. Even though it was Monday, it definitely felt like a Sunday in our house.
When dinnertime rolled around, Mal was psyched. He was actually looking forward to this meal for a few days.
When my mom gave us a bunch of goodies from Omaha Steaks for Christmas, some “gourmet franks” were part of the variety pack we received. Gourmet franks meant Chicago-style hot dogs to Mal, so we bought all of the fixings to make them for dinner last night.
I guess there’s a proper way to layer the ingredients of a Chicago-style hot dog (I had no idea), so Mal made sure we put them together the right way.
We couldn’t find poppy seed hot dog buns at the grocery store, but we got the rest of it right!
After dinner, I ate a Brownie in a Mug for dessert.
We ate dinner on the early side last night, and I stayed up to watch The Bachelor, so I ended up getting snacky later in the evening. I ate some rice crackers with Babybel cheese.
And then some peanuts.

Question of the Day
Do you have a specific method for eating certain foods?
When I eat Oreos, I always create double-stuffed Oreos (or quadruple-stuffed Oreos if I eat Double-Stuffed Oreos).
I can’t eat pancakes or oatmeal without nut butter, and I always make sure the last bite includes some.
And I always break off and throw away the bottom of a banana. As a kid, one of my friends told me spiders lay their eggs there, which, obviously, I now know isn’t true, but I still never eat it. And that’s why I don’t eat the whole banana!
