Breeze Salad & Cheese Less Veggie Quesadillas

Breeze Salad & Cheese Less Veggie Quesadillas

This morning I can say, Mike and I went for a walk around the neighborhood together. It’s something we haven’t done in a while, and it’s something Mike did on his brand new bike. He’s like a kid in a candy shop after buying his used trail bike. 

Since I haven’t been able to get a Pilates schedule, I’ve decided to walk around the neighborhood for my exercise. This weekend I got back into the groove!!

After my walk, got home to take a shower and hit the road to Orlando. Mike wanted to get to his favorite restaurant, Bahama Breeze for his Chicken Kabobs and St. Thomas Crab Claws.

 I have to admit, I did have 3 of those Crab Claws before my Breeze Salad and Cheese less Veggie Quesadillas arrived. I was proud of myself, usually I get my Bahama Rita drink and this time I ordered Water with a Lemon.

Then we battled the rain to head over to Whole Foods where I got some Dried Cranberries, Raisins and some new TPV. Mike wanted to return the Honey I picked up a while back because it started crystallizing (not a good sign).

After engaging the navigation system, we found a Costco down in Orlando and picked up some more Agave and some other goods and headed home in the rain. By the time we got home, the rain had stopped and we were able to get all the groceries out without getting soaked.!!!

Dinner was a mix of my Fresh Vegetable Salad, which I packed full of the leftover Kidney Beans and left over Chick Peas from the other day. Mike made his Potato Medley Grill.

After dinner we did the usual 60 Minutes and then Desperate Housewives. But afterwards, ABC aired something a little different. A show with Jamie Oliver called “Food Revolution”, where he goes to Huntington, W.V. and tries to reteach the way these people eat. Huntington was rated the city with the most obese people and city with horrible eating habits in the U.S. Very interested how the schools, families and community are killing themselves with all the fried, processed foods they’re eating.

Sangek Flat Bread

Sangek Flat Bread

 After I managed to settle down from my revelation of a saggy butt earlier today, I made some lunch for Mike and his son. Mike realized that some of the Vegetables (Bell Peppers, and Zucchinis) where starting to get old and wrinkly. I told him that I would have to cut them up and use them in something.  

Out of the kindness of his heart, he decided to cut the old and wrinkled ones up along with some Onions. He and his son left for a couple of hours, and buy the time he returned; he wanted me to have roasted them for lunch. Well, words were exchanged and Vegetables did get roasted, plus I made a very nice Garlic Chicken for them as well.

Sangek Flat Bread

Then after lunch we went on a journey to check out a new Persian Restaurant/Deli in Rockville, Maryland. Mike found this new restaurant in the Persian Paper and wanted to check it out, because they advertised making bread called Sangek fresh while you wait. So he was definitely interested.  The bread is flat bread made with Oats and Sesame Seeds. I’m sure there are other ingredients, but those are the ones Mike knows. He also adds, it’s very healthy for you and virtually no calories.!!!

So, of course on the way home we couldn’t stop eating pieces from the flat bread. And even when we got home, I know I couldn’t stop. I scooped out some Hummus and dipped the bread into it. 

Chocolate Craze

Chocolate Dove Bars

Dinner was nothing but our munching on the Sangek. I did have desert last night while I was watching Desperate Housewives. I had 2 CHOCOLATE COVERED DOVE BARS… and literally made a mess of myself, getting chocolate all over my shirt.  This act required me to do some exercises, while I was watching Brothers & Sisters.

Sunday Vegetable Rice Soup

Sunday Vegetable Rice Soup

Mike’s wanted to see the movie “Everybody’s Fine” with Robert DeNiro since it came out the beginning of December. Well, last night he made me look up where the movie’s playing. I found out it’s only playing in Shirlington, a suburb next to Alexandria and Pentagon City. 

So after Ice Skating, we got in the car in our search for something to do indoors and agreed on the movie. By the time we got there, found out it was playing at 4:45pm. Well it was only 2:45pm, so went drove over to Tyson’s Mall to walk around and decided to take in “Up In The Air” with George Clooney. Good movie… funny, relevant, and just plain nice.

Sitting at home in the comfortable, warm shelter from the freezing cold outside, Mike’s waiting for 60 Minutes to come on and I’m going to head downstairs to eat some more of that Vegetable Soup. It’s just the thing to warm me up and energize me for Sunday Night line-up of shows. 60 Minutes, Home Makeover Edition, Desperate Housewives, and Brothers & Sisters. They’re all supposed to be new episodes tonight, and I can’t wait!!!!!  

But before that… it’s Sunday Vegetable Soup and some Whole Wheat Bread and afterwards some Vedge Juice.

Encore/Wynn Pool

A Walk By the Pool In Vegas

When we arrived in Vegas, I was so tired and hungry we decided to stay in the hotel to watch Desperate Housewives and order room service. I ordered a Veggie Sandwich and a Fruit Plate, but before the food came we snacked on a Veggie Tray I got in Grand Junction, Colorado. I managed to take my Barley Max and drink some Carrot Juice throughout the day. I felt good and felt I was on the way to heathy eating again.

No sooner did the Housewives end, I was sleeping!!!
The next morning, Mike wanted breakfast, so we ate at one of the hotel restaurants.

It was 60 degrees and sunny outside, so we sat outside at the pool. I ordered some Oatmeal with Raisins and a Bran Muffin. I was so excited the hotel had on the menu fresh Carrot Juice… so I ordered so!
Then after some shopping and walking around our Hotel(Encore Hotel), we had some lunch. Both of us ordered Salads and we shared a Veggie Flatbread Pizza. It seems I take one step forward and take two steps back!!! On to Los Angeles,California.
