What I Ate This Week

This labor day weekend we headed up to my parents’ lakehouse.  We ate, fished, swam, walked and did a lot of relaxing.  I’m a third of the way into the Gone Girl book and really loving it.  My glute is feeling 85% better so I’ve started doing some powerlifting training with Andrew.  I just started this past Sunday but it’s fun to train rather than just workout.  Before I knew Andrew I thought powerlifting was like lifting a heavy rock on top of a pillar, but now I know it’s just three lifts: squat, deadlift, benchpress.  I’m training for fun, but Andrew is competing this month! On to the food..


Monday: Chicken Sausage, Spinach, Ricotta & Tortellini Pasta.  LOVED THIS.  Based off this recipe.  I used ricotta instead of half-and-half and chicken sausage instead of regular.

chai tea latte.  Since I’ve been making my own chai tea latte concentrate I now realize how sweet the Starbucks version is.  I like the homemade version better.  But it’s hard to beat the Starbucks experience, ya know?

And some randomness.  I had a day date with a friend and found this gold moose head at Z Gallerie that I’m obsessed with.  I just don’t know where I’d put him in my house.  He was only like $35 too.  I need go back and get him.  I’m sure I could find a place.

And also…I totally look like my parents’ dog in this pictures.  We both have sleepy, early morning eyes.

And that’s it! Hope you had a great labor day weekend.  Yay short weeks!

  8. syrup has sugar, where cocoa does not. since it’s such a small amount, i don’t think it would be too diustsroas if you switch them out. just use 2 tbsp.
