Hello, Hot Bar

Hi guys! How are ya?? Happy Labor Day to those of you who have the day off! What do you have planned?

Last night, the Pilot and I drove around looking for somewhere to feast. We wanted to go somewhere super casual (he was in shorts and I was in yoga clothes with frizzy rain hair) and had no idea where to go since we usually hit up fancier restaurants here for dinner.

Whole Paycheck to the rescue:

hot bar

Dinner was a cornucopia of healthy delights including plantain and yucca, shrimp curry atop broccoli, Madras veggies on top of grilled squash, Babylonian treasure salad and an artichoke and kidney bean salad.

After dinner, we met my aunt and cousin’s at Bar Louie and brought some fortune cookies since the Pilot had ordered Pei Wei crab wontons (from next door) to go with his hot bar.

Quite possibly the best “in bed” fortune ever:



We came back to the casa, watched the Kardashians and My Big Fat Greek Wedding for the 1,382 time and called it a night.

This morning, I’m munching a banana with almond butter:


and am about to do the workout thang before my Pilot love and I hit the road back to Valdizzy.

Have a great day <3



Looking for something to cook up for today’s Labor Day feast??

Here are some ideas:

-Grilled chicken/meat and vegetables (with garlic, rosemary, olive oil, sea salt and pepper), served with sweet potato fries, salad and Vegan Almond Butter Chocolate Chips (on their own, or pizookie style for dessert!)
