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! :)
