I’m all messed up on days right now, it feels like it should be Tuesday but in reality, the work week is halfway over already. Not complaining here! I’m actually surprised I remembered to take pictures of my eats yesterday for What I Ate Wednesday! We had an awesome weekend in Nantucket with friends but I’ll share more about that later. For now, here are my eats. I had the (now usual) steel cut oats for breakfast with apples, dried cranberries, chia seeds, flax and milk.
I had a little snack around 10:30 to hold me over until lunch; some popchips with cottage cheese.
For lunch I made a caesar salad with spinach & baby kale and then had some indian paneer over quinoa & brown rice.
For an afternoon snack I had some carrots dipped in hummus and a huge crunchy apple!
I almost forgot to take a picture of my dinner but I had a lightbulb moment about halfway through so I snapped this picture for you. I had another salad, some butternut squash risotto and a Dogfish Head Espresso Habanero sausage. It was good but SPICY! The boys were having a dance party in my belly after that one.
WHAT MAKES ME HAPPY:
This is probably our last trip we’ll take before the babies arrive so we soaked it all up and enjoyed sleeping in, going out to dinner and packing only 2 bags for the entire trip. Tom & I (mostly me) have an issue with overpacking so I’m frightened about how much stuff we’re going to bring with us when we have two little ones in tow.
Friday was absolutely gorgeous, we spent some time getting settled in to the house, stocking the fridge with beer (and seltzer), and then we went out to a FANTASTIC dinner at The Sea Grille. This may have been one of the best pasta dishes I have ever had. The pasta was homemade and it was topped with grilled lobster, a fresh tomato garlic sauce and some drizzled pesto. Holy guacamole, I’ll be dreaming about this one for years to come.
Unfortunately the weather on Saturday was a bit of a bust, it was POURING rain with lots of wind; the type of day where you just want to stay inside. So, that’s exactly what we did. It was nice though, its been a long time since I’ve had a completely lazy day like that and it makes it much more fun when you have great friends to share it with. We put together this puzzle which pretty much took all day. I think we put the last piece in the sky at about midnight and literally cheered out loud, it was a doozy!
We were blessed with a gorgeous day on Sunday so we all went out to brunch to celebrate Steph & Alicia’s completion of the half marathon and then spent the rest of the day walking around town shopping and eating.
It was a great weekend with great people! Looking forward to making it back to Nantucket again some day, my heart is in Martha’s Vineyard where some of my best friend’s live but Nantucket certainly had its own special charm.
