Happy Birthday to my favorite stud muffin.
But it’s cool, he looks like wolverine, so no one will mess with him.
I already gave Dan his birthday presents a few days ago (a super exciting composter and All Star Game tickets) – we can never hold out until the actual day.
Dan’s most recent goal is to find the best Thai crab fried rice in the Kansas City area, so I think we are going to try a new Thai restaurant tonight. Unlike him, I enjoy trying new dishes – what would you suggest? What is your favorite Thai dish? I am trying to find something that impresses me more than green curry beef. Mmmm….
Yesterday was a quickly made pina coladaish smoothie of a bunch of super greens, 2 tbs of shredded coconut, frozen pineapple, a banana, 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder, and 1 C skim milk.
Drank quickly on my way out the door.
Joe the Trader made me lunch – green curry tuna with frozen broccoli.
We went over to our neighbors’ house for an amazing dinner.
We brought the appetizers: spinach and bacon stuffed mushrooms (click *here* for the recipe).
They put out a spread.
Courtney covered the corn on the cob with grape seed oil and Stevia – a very interesting and tasty combination. This was my first experience with stuffed crab and I have been missing out! The shrimp in adobo seasonings was also tasty.
I forgot to take a picture of my wine – but I still had a small glass of malbec (3).
I have to say that my favorite part was the strawberry cake. I am going to find a lightened up recipe to take to Easter. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
One of the best things about eating dinner at our neighbor’s house is walking home and enjoying a beautiful evening.
If you look close you can see that Dan is giving me bunny ears. Silly boy.
I didn’t run yesterday because last Tuesday was my last rest day. Resting on week days might not be the best idea because if I don’t run I have a harder time dealing with situations that would normally be no big deal. I was so close to an altercation with the woman at the post office before I took a deep breath and composed myself enough to walk out the door. Not running Racheal = crazy Racheal.
