It’s Wednesday? Hmm … I think Chris being home the last two days for New Year’s has thrown me off completely. At least it’s a short week right? Haha. We had a friend in town over the weekend which led to some additional indulging so now I get to kick my New Year’s Resolutions off right. But first, a glimpse back on some of those indulgences with Jenn from Peas and Crayons for “What I Ate Wednesday“.
Eggs scrambled with egg whites, spinach, and mushrooms with fruit and bacon on the side. I also made whole-wheat pumpkin waffles with peanut butter and syrup. Waffles aren’t waffles unless they have PB in my mind
We went to Ruby Tuesday for lunch which is surprisingly one of my favorites even though I worked there in college. I love the salad bar and their turkey minis. I shared my salad with Emmalyne (girl has a thing for lettuce and spinach) and took one of the turkey minis home for later (which Chris ate without permission – BOO husbands).
A couple of Byrd’s ginger snap cookies that we got when we were down in City Market in Savannah over the weekend. If you haven’t been their it is awesome (and next door to Bedford’s). You can taste test the flavors so you know which ones you want to buy in bulk. We got the ginger snaps and red velvet cookies with powdered cream cheese sugar. AMAZING.
For New Year’s Eve we had Mike here and our friends Cassie (I chased her in the Pooler Jingle Jog) and her husband Brian over for dinner. We feasted on grilled snow crab legs and steak, bacon wrapped green beans, and mashed potatoes. Finished off with some bubbly This meal was seriously the bomb. The bacon wrapped green beans is genius and tasty. Make them. Now.
In order to offset the beer I drank this weekend and the delicious food I ate I logged my first miles of 2012. Yesterday afternoon I laced up my sneakers for an awesome run in our neighborhood. It was so awesome I could run in shorts and a tank. Got to love living in the Deep South
AND some photos of the loves in my life …
Hope everyone’s 2013 started full of laughter and light and tons of positive energy Let’s make this the best year ever!
