Being from Washington, DC, today is another game day for us, albeit a different kind – the Redskins are playing the Cowboys for Sunday Night Football. It’s currently halftime, and we’re pretty thrilled about the last minute touchdown we got!
Anyhow, food on Sundays is always different and scattered. I just eat when I’m hungry. When I got up this morning, I had my usual cup of coffee w/ stevia & organic milk, then did an intense workout with a Jillian Michaels DVD. This workout kills me every time (Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism). I really wanted to go running, but the last time I ran in my neighborhood (on weekdays, I run on campus, and then I can shower at the campus gym and go to work), I got chased by 2 stray dogs; and then I had to witness one of them get hit by a car when it ran into the street. I was upset and practically in tears as I ran my last 4 miles back to my house. So I decided to stay in today! After working out, I had a bowl of cantaloupe and Flax Plus cereal.
When my husband woke up, I made him some potato pancakes made with organic potatoes, a farmer’s market egg and two strips of bacon. I make him really healthy breakfasts on weekdays, so I like to spoil him with special breakfasts on the weekends.
For dinner, one of my favorite Chinese dishes – sticky rice. I make mine with Chinese sausage (though I don’t eat it – I pick it out, it’s more just for my husband), shiitake mushrooms and chestnuts. I also stir-friend some napa cabbage and made a spicy honey glazed chicken for my husband (neither are pictured).
I also baked this cinnamon almond biscotti for my coworkers and had a piece. Biscotti is one of my favorite treats!
All in all, a nice weekend. I spent a TON of it doing homework and studying, but also got to spend some quality time with my husband. Now back to football!
