Hi! Sorry for the delayed lunch post. I drove back to Tampa this afternoon and it was more of a lengthy drive than I remember! Almost three hours! yuck! I had a great morning though that included: having an apple with cranberry tea for a snack (nope-plain oatmeal did NOT hold me over til lunch!), getting a pedicure and going out to lunch with mom. We went to a little gourmet store we both loved when my family lived there…I got a great salad that had field greens, one ounce of feta, about three ounces of salmon and a variety of veggies in it. I had a half of an 8 inch baguette with it (probably about 1.5 ounces) and a green tea. It hit the spot!
Of course I was hungry again when I got home so I just made an apple and peanut butter snack using my parent’s smart balance peanut butter (I don’t really like the taste of this but I don’t have my freshly ground stuff so there’s really no choice!). I hope this snack holds me over a while because tonight Ryan and I are meeting a large group of friends at a really fancy steakhouse for dinner at 8:30! We are celebrating one of our friend’s birthdays and it should be a really fun night. As you all may have noticed, I really don’t eat steak very often—but this place is famous and supposedly really good so I’m actually looking forward to ordering a steak tonight! I’ll let you all know how it goes!

(this green tea pictured was AMAZING! I really don’t like liquor at all but LOVE mojitos! They are my absolute favorite drink other than wine and make me feel like I’m in the islands whenever I order one. I try to be good and only order these on special occasions because they are incredibly high in sugar usually but oh so good! 🙂 This tea tasted just like a mojito but with no alcohol and no sugar! yay!
