Last night after work, I came home to THIS:
Swoon city, my friends 😀
The pilot and I had made dinner plans and after discovering that all of our favorite places are closed on Monday, we went to the Bistro, which is notorious for being overly salty and overpriced.
I drank club soda with a splash of cranberry:
While we were waiting for our appetizer, we took turns naming the funky art on the walls.
This is rose-headed boob grabber:
and Vertebrae Strike.
For an appetizer, we chose the sesame-crusted tuna, which was pretty tasty wasty.
So was the salad:
Our entrees, however, were pretty lackluster and terribly overcooked.
The pilot said his lamb was dry and chewy, and my salmon was likened to an eraser.
I munched the salmon edges, but couldn’t do any more.
I did eat all of the veggies and ALL of the potatoes (the pilot was shocked- I’m not a potato fan), and I’m 100% certain the potatoes came out of a box. You don’t get that texture by mashing and whisking… you only get that texture by adding potato flakes to milk. I was so hungry and since the salmon was terrible, I just killed the veggies.
This morning’s bfast was a thousand times better.
Overnight protein chia oats with:
-1/2 C oats
-1 C almond milk
-1 T chia seeds
-1 T brown rice protein
-1/2 sliced banana
-1 T almond butter
-1 T maca
I’m off to pump some crazy iron, but I’ll see ya back here later today!
