Braving Cold

Saturday we decided to take a drive to San Diego with Mike’s cousins. We woke up early at 6AM, and started getting ready. I had planned on wearing my SKINNY JEANS I bought in Colorado and was pleasantly surprised when they fit.

Yeah!!!! I was on cloud 9 all day and I looked hot in my jeans. So I got a little crazy and drank a Marguarita with lunch, and two Bombay & Tonics later on and Montage Hotel Restaurant Studio.

But before we even got there, on the way down the 5 we stopped at a park and had a picnic of breakfast foods. I tried Mike’s cousins Bean Stew. It was like Mike’s moms Vegetable Stew!! Yum Yum!.. Then I also ate really well with a Salad, Couscous, and Beets.

Sushi Restaurant

Sushi w/Kristie & Dewey

If Thanksgiving Dinner was any indication of what my eating habits would turn into, I would have stuck with the food I made. But par for the course, I continued to get coffees at Starbucks, I snacked on those fudge pieces my sister in law made. Oh the Maple Fudge Brick she made was devine!!!! I even had Sushi Friday afternoon with my girlfriend Kristie… I had a Veggie Roll and a Salmon Roll.

Then I had breakfast the next morning with Mike and I indulged on French Toast and hashbrowns. When I was ordering, I honestly thought it was a good choice for breakfast. Then I realized I’m eating eggs on the French Toast and who knows how the Hashbrowns were made.

Saturday night, I my Bombay Sapphire and Tonic with Nachos, and a Green Salad. Both Unfortunately, had Cheese on them and I forgot to ask for no Cheese on the Salad.

Each day, I managed to forget taking my Barley Max one or more times, drinking my juice and keeping strong to my Eating Raw Foods decision. When you’re with family and friends, your eating plan comes in second place, or at least, that’s what happened with me on this trip.

Then Sunday when we pushed off toward Las Vegas, I had a Caramel Frappucino and a Whole Wheat Bagel scooped out with nothing else. I already took my Barley Max, drank my Carrot Juice, and had a Greek Salad on the trip. I was bound and determined to make the best of the time left of this trip and begin eating Raw again.

We hit the road again Saturday… on our way to Colorado for Thanksgiving. During the drive we ate lunch in the car…which was the Green Bean Delight and some Roasted Potatoes with Rosemary.

Our first stop in the journey, New Orleans, Louisiana. I’d never been there, nor Mike and we decided to explore the minute we got there. First, we got to our hotel room and freshened up a little. It was only 7:30pm when we got in town so we grabbed a bite to eat at Mr. B’s Bistro. It’s on the corner of Conti & Royal. Since we were in the bayou, I thought I’d have a cup of Seafood Gumbo and a Green Salad. We were really good Saturday night, and only had one cocktail each, I had the Bombay Sapphire & Tonic and then followed that bad with a Fruit Crisp with Sorbet for desert that Mike & I shared… then we hit Bourbon Street.

The next morning…. we walked around the French Quarter some more and went to Cafe Du Monde for some Coffee & Beignets. So sinful!!!!! After visiting the 9th Ward, we left for Dallas. But in Baton Rough we stopped off at the Macaroni Grill where I had their Mediterranean Olives and a Green Salad. We drove through dinner, so I had my left over Roasted Potatoes and Roasted Zucchini & Squash (food I made Friday night.)

We got into Dallas a bit late… so I just cozied into bed and relaxed. Monday, we started early and headed toward Dealey Plaza and drove up Main Street to check out the original Neiman Marcus Store!!! While we were driving around downtown Dallas I ate Mike’s Margarita Pizza leftovers. Three small pieces of pizza for breakfast…NOT GOOD!!! Then we stopped into McDonald’s and I tried the Hot Cafe Mocha.

Around 9:30AM we hit I-35 North to Oklahoma City, OK to visit the Memorial and eat lunch at Brick town. After Mike walked through and experienced the site of the April 19, 1995 bombing site, we picked Crabtown to eat lunch at. Mike wanted a Steakhouse (I couldn’t find one) so we compromised and I had a Green Salad with Fried Onions on top and a cup of Red Beans and Rice.Yum!!!!

We reached Wichita, Kansas by the time we got some sprinkles on the windshield. So I asked Mike to turn the station to the weather forecast… for an update as we drive west on 1-70. Forecasters were predicting more rain, high winds and snow closer to Goodland, Kansas. So, we decided to stop in Hayes, Kansas for the night. I didn’t complain because I knew I was going to finish my Macaroni Grill leftovers and watch Dancing With The Stars-Semi Finals. BONUS!!!
