Between yesterday afternoon and last night, I slept 11 hours (but laid in bed for a total of 15 â€“ I was a lazy lady lump). I think Iâ€™m catching up on the sleep zombie vortex I entered during the last month of book writing (have I mentioned Iâ€™m SO glad itâ€™s over?).
Dinner ended up beingâ€¦ horrible, actually (and I never say thatâ€¦ my expectations are pretty low, and Iâ€™m easy to please)! We had reservations at 8:45 but they accidentally gave away our table, so we waited an hour at the bar to sit â€“ even though I could see a ton of open tables. The manager only comped our drinks and appetizers after we asked him to, and the entrees were totally overpriced ($17 for a veggie entree is ridiculous). After such a seating disaster, youâ€™d think they would give us the best table in the house, but they stuck us in a crowded and noisy room in the back. By the time I sat down, I was so bitter that I refused to photograph my food. ;) It was a shame because it was our special night out. I did, however, tip the waitress 20% because it wasnâ€™t her fault.
Butâ€¦ I came home and slept and everything was right in the world again!
Plus, breakfast more than made up for our lackluster dinner out:
A new spin on the classic breakfast burrito! In the whole wheat tortilla:
- Mashed sweet potato
- 1 egg + 1 egg white, scrambled
- Cherry tomatoes
- Stir-fried broccoli
Iâ€™ve decided to take you all up on a little challenge â€“ Eat-In February. This will be much easier because weâ€™re halfway through the month. :) Iâ€™ve been eating out too much ($$) and want to nip the habit in the bud, so for the next two weeks, Iâ€™m putting a kibosh on eating out. However, I will make the following exceptions:
- Traveling for work tomorrow and Tuesday and will have to eat out.
- Dadâ€™s birthday celebration is on February 16.
Other than that, itâ€™s going to be DINING IN in the Boyle house. And that means lots of new recipes. :) This also means that Iâ€™m going to do more meal planning, so weâ€™ll see how that goes.
Have a wonderful Sunday, my dears!
