And possibly a bottle of wine. If you're lucky.
Courtney, my best friend in 4th grade who I haven't seen in 9 years, and her family just moved in a block away from us. We helped them move in on Saturday and they invited us over for dinner last night.
So we brought dessert.
And wine. See - told ya.
I followed this recipe for Mocha Chocolate Trifle. A big thanks to Joan, my WW leader, for suggesting it! You should make this, but only if you have 16 people to help you eat it.
I am excited about Courtney and her family moving into da hood for three reasons.
1. Dinner dates with people our age, such as last night. She prepared a feast.
2. Courtney is a triathlete turned figure competitor. Super impressive. She has done races out the wazoo and will (hopefully) be a perfect running budd and resource. Yay!
3. She has an adorable little boy who currently hates me because I took his helmet off. Next time I see him I will remember to bring candy. Hehehe.
We had a great night and hope to see them again soon!
My good friend Rachael Ray suggested that I make quinoa sweet by using apple juice instead of water. I took it one stop further and added a chopped green apple, Splenda, and cinnamon into the rice cooker.
It was okay, but I think I know where I went wrong. Next time I will add less apple juice and wait to add the apples until closer to the end. I am not a fan of soggy apples.
I met my lovah for lunch.
I snacked on brussel sprouts as soon as I got home.
It was a good thing, because if I hadn't, that crack dip would have been demolished.
I was a bum yesterday and waited until my lunch break to run. I hopped on the treadmill at my work gym next to a woman who I don't know, but see in the hallway often. I picked Smash to watch on my ipad, which opened with an adult scene that was pretty graphic for public television.
I was so embarrassed that I almost fell off the treadmill trying to get the picture to go away. I don't know if she saw it, but either way she thinks I am pretty riskay or a general freak of nature.
Great. Next time I will run my 4 miles at home.
Thought for the day
Daily points (31) + Running Points (9) - Eating Points (50) = -10
