I just got back from meeting the boy for lunch…what fun! The Honda Grand Prix is going on right now (that’s race car stuff for those of you that don’t know—I didn’t know!) right outside his office and so after we ate we walked over there and watched all the race cars speed by. It’s a pretty big deal actually and all the roads are blocked off. I think I am permanently deaf however in both ears. haha.
For lunch, we went to this organic cafe where you can sit outside and enjoy yummy healthy food and people watch. I ordered the vegan butternut squash soup and hummus plate, which came with a cup of delicious, thick creamy soup alongside a large (I would say about 1/2 cup?) scoop of their homemade hummus and served with a whole wheat pita. I def. cleaned my plate and washed everything down with organic unsweetened white tea. Ryan ordered the special of the day: chicken quesadillas with a side salad. I was worried he would think it tasted “too healthy” with a whole wheat tortilla and not oozing with grease, but much to my surprise he loved it! This morning while I ran errands I snacked on an apple to hold me over til’ lunch.
Tonight we are having our “date night” (we decided to go out to a nice dinner once while I was home and I would cook the rest of the time) at Flemings. I picked it! Now, you might think why in the world would I pick a steakhouse to go to dinner to! haha! Well, it just so happens they apparently have this amazing roasted vegetable platter that I’ve been dying to try! I actually called over there and asked about it and the girl that answered the phone just raved about it, saying it was her favorite thing on the entire menu. I’m pretty pumped. Who knew a steakhouse would be vegetarian/vegan friendly? They are owned by the same company as Roy’s so not only do I get a nice little discount, but I know I can enjoy great service and food as well!
Let’s all not forget to tune into Oprah this afternoon at 4:00 eastern time! A reader kindly informed me that it is on the cruel treatment to animals! I will def. be watching it either at the gym or on the couch 😉
