I didn’t wake up early enough to catch the Easter Sunday Sunrise Service on the beach… but I did manage to make the 10am Mass. Which was packed with the entire city of Palm Coast, Florida there. I had to park across the street from the church.. because the parking lot and retail store parking next to the church was all full.

Afterwards… I drove home because Mike and I planned on driving down to Orlando to Bahama Breeze Restaurant for his Easter Sunday Lunch at his second favorite Restaurant.

Of course I had my usual Bahama Breeze Salad and Vegetable Quesadillas w/out Cheese. I did indulge with a Bahamarita Cocktail.

Then we went over to the Outlet Mall to walk it off. Which was great because I felt a bit of headache coming on from the Cocktail. Or at least that’s what I thought it was from. And unfortunately the headache remained even after we got home. I decided we should take a bike ride around the neighborhood… plus I wanted to bike down to Publix Grocery Store for some dinner items. It’s just down the street from us.. maybe a mile, so it’s really easy to bike to. And while we were biking, Mike suggested that it was closed on Easter. When we got there, sure enough, it was closed.

So we turned around and biked back home…. where I had in my head to make a veggie pizza. I was going to use a Whole Wheat Dough, but instead got some frozen Totino’s Cheese Pizzas.

I put them in the microwave for about 2 mins each and was able to peel the Cheese off with a paper towel.

I then added the Kabob Vegetable leftovers from Saturday and put the pizzas in the oven to bake. They were really good,.. and I think healthier than with the Cheese on it.! 

Veggie Pizza:

Ingredients:

Broccoli

Red Bell Peppers

Orange Bell Peppers

Onions

No Cheese

Directions: Microwave frozen Pizzas to thaw and place paper towel on the Pizzas to take the cheese off after 2 minute timer.  Place vegetables on Pizzas and place in oven to crisp for another 10 to 20 minutes on 450 degrees.

Day it seems I was in a haze for the better part of the day. And this morning I had some errands to run, so it  made for a very trying start to the day. I’m chalking it up to allergies!!

But by the time I finished with my errands, it was lunch time so I head home. Mike warmed up some left overs from yesterdays meal and I had the same thing I ate last night. Cucumber & Tomato Salad and Rice.

Not feeling any better then I did this morning… Mike and I decided to go out again. This time, I wanted to go north to St. Augustine to the outlet mall. Sunday when we were out in Orlando at the Outlets I got a shirt from Armani Exchange and it’s too tight. So I wanted to see it there was an Armani Exchange in St. Augustine, but there’s not.

So it was late… and my stomach was growling!!! So we went to Carrabba’s Restaurant.

It was just before 7pm when we walked in the door… and that means 2for1 happy hour. I had my usual House Pinot Grigio.

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.

I got up early again Saturday and took a brisk walk around the neighborhood and it was bone chilling windy. I cut the walk a little short, because my ears were killing me from the cold.! 😦

We got ready and went for a ride down to Orlando and during the car trip I drank my Carrot, Beet, Celery, Apple Juice. Once we got down to Orlando, we were both hungry and decided to eat at Bahama Breeze. I ignored all my best judgment and had the Fish Tacos with Tilapia, Avocado, and Tomatoes in a Flour Tortilla. I had three of those, and remember the Bahama Rita’s they make? Yeah, well I drank one of those.!!!

From there, we went to the Outlets to do some shopping… and walk around. We didn’t get home until after 6pm and I didn’t have a chance to drink my other tumbler of Carrot, Beet, Celery and Apple Juice; so I drank it when we got home.

Once at home Mike made his famous Grilled Potatoes and Onions, and I decided to make a Healthy Green Salad. I decided to make that, to counteract my bad choice of having Fish for lunch. Well, if I thought that was bad, I didn’t know that an entire Large Hershey’s Bar with Almonds and Almond Peanut Butter was going to be my downfall.

Healthy Green Salad:

Spinach & Baby Greens

1Orange Bell Pepper

4Green Onions

1Tomato 

1Small Bunch of Broccoli

4Mushrooms

2Tbls Pomegranate
