So many movies, so little time

And now . . . here are my meals from yesterday and today. Join the “What I Ate Wednesday” over at Peas and Crayons! And her blog isn’t half bad either. 😉

Yesterday was a great day with my husband, even with my disappointment over getting pancakes instead of waffles. 🙂

Ever since I saw the list of Oscar nominees for best picture, I have had the urge to see as many of the nominees as possible. That may be because every year I have no idea who to root for since I usually have seen hardly any of the nominees. That’s not surprising since my taste usually falls in the romantic comedy category . . . not exactly Oscar worthy. 😉

Since I have not seen even one of the nominees, I have a lot of catching up to do. So yesterday Corey and I went to see not one, but two movies. We saw 127 hours and Black Swan. They were both pretty good movies. 127 hours made me uncomfortable in certain parts because he was so close to dying. And I had to look away at the infamous arm self-amputation scene. Black Swan was odd and more than a little dark, but still a good movie. I can see why both James Franco and Natalie Portman were nominated. I may be biased because I have had a crush on James Franco ever since he appeared on General Hospital. I told you guys I was a fan of soap operas. 🙂

In between movies, I went to the mall so I could get a bra fitting at Intimacy. It was kind of a waste of time. I did get an idea of my true size, but the woman didn’t even tell me. I had to look for myself, among all the bras she was bringing into the fitting room. She was mainly just trying to get me to buy something. At $145 a bra, no thank you! I have a budget after all. Even if I did use credit cards (which I don’t), I wouldn’t have put one of those expensive bras on it.

We had lunch at Jason’s Deli. I love that place! It’s one of the precious few sandwich places that I can eat without getting a migraine. No MSG baby! 🙂

I got a turkey on whole wheat bread with organic greens and roasted pepper hummus. It was pretty good, but I think I like their guacamole better than the hummus. It was such a big sandwich that I saved half to eat for later.

The star of the show though was the tomato basil soup I purchased along with my sandwich. Tomato is my favorite kind of soup, but I don’t usually get it here because I like their Southwestern Chicken Chili so much.

This was hands down the best soup I have ever tasted. It was so creamy and I could taste how fresh the tomatoes were. I was so sad when I was done with my soup.

What is your favorite soup?

The best part of lunch was the free soft serve!

I’m not afraid to say that this one of the reasons why I love this place so much.

Yesterday I actually slept in kind of late and we didn’t eat breakfast until after 10:30. Because of that, our whole eating schedule was thrown off. We had lunch late and then neither of us were in the mood for dinner. I ended up eating a light snack of cheese toast and a piece of chicken sausage around 9:30.

It seemed like the weekend just kind of flew by . . . especially because I worked on Saturday and then had to be back at work today. Argh. And Callie woke up early and started whining so she woke us up earlier than necessary. I don’t know what her issue was but we have a rule that we don’t get up to take her out until the alarm goes off (even if she’s whining). Because of this, she doesn’t whine too early before the alarm because she knows that is the signal to get up. She is such a smart dog!

I started the day with some leftover Gingerbread Walnut Pancakes.

Mmm . . . I love leftovers!

The work day was kind of slow. I had what seemed like a lot of work to do, but no immediate and pressing deadlines for anything. The day passed quickly anyway. For lunch, I had some spinach fettuccine, pasta sauce, and grilled chicken.

I don’t think I will get this pasta again. It tastes just like regular pasta, so the flavor is fine. However, it seems like no matter how long you cook it, it still tastes a little undercooked. Ironically, it seems to be more cooked the next day and it seems to soften a little when you reheat it.

My snacks included a couple of clementines,

a bagel with some Naturally Nutty Butter Toffee Peanut Butter,

bagel half times two

and the second pack of Biscoff cookies that my husband brought me from his trip (or should I say the airplane?).

I can’t believe I held onto these for two whole days before eating them. Talk about self-control!

Today was rainy and much colder than the weekend (which was a very warm 70 degrees). But I wanted to do another round of 10K training when I got home. My husband is going out of town (AGAIN) tomorrow so I wanted to go for a jog with him and Callie. It was drizzling most of the time and I had to walk the whole time (instead of jog) because my legs were shaking or something. But we still walked for around 40 minutes and it was nice to relax with Corey and discuss our day. It was truly the best part of my day. 🙂

Dinner was a simple baked chicken strips and sweet potato fries (fresh, not frozen).

Can you tell that I love orange vegetables? I have eaten a lot of sweet potatoes lately.

Now I am relaxing with my hubby and catching up on some White Collar and Royal Pains. Love those shows. 🙂

  1. Don’t worry–you’re not alone with your love of orange veggies. I love carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, mango, cantaloupe, oranges, etc! (I know those aren’t all vegetables, but who’s counting) 🙂

    Whenever I sleep in late, my body’s clock goes totally out of whack. But still, it’s nice to sleep in. 🙂

  2. 1. I have Biscoff cookies from our last trip in the pantry right now…hahaha.

    2. My favorite soup…That’s a hard one. I’d have to say Tomato Basil, the Black Bean they have at Panera, or Cream of Chicken and Wild Rice. And that’s me not being indecisive.

  3. It’s so hard for me to choose my favorite soup…hm. I love Greek egg lemon soup, but when I was something creamy and rich, it would have to be clam chowder. I totally have a crush on James Franco too. It’s those wrinkles!

  4. Orange veggies are def some of my fave! and soft serve….love it! This post is full of deliciousness 😉

  5. Hey! I gave you an award on my site! Love your blog!

  6. I love French onion soup. It’s my favorite!

  7. I love Jason’s Deli! Yummy 🙂

  8. Jason’s Deli is SO GOOD! I love how fresh their ingredients are and girl, you are on point about that soft serve. It’s my favorite part 😉

    I haven’t seen 127 Hours yet, I’m really squeamish so I’m a little nervous. I did see Black Swan though, crazy movie but Natalie did a really good job!

  9. I want to see 127 Hours, but I will probably pass out when he starts cutting off his arm!

  10. I saw 127 Hours this weekend, too. It was wonderful, but I definitely hid my eyes when he cut off his arm.
    That movie was really similar in feel to Castaway with Tom Hanks.

  11. I made my husband tell me when the “arm” scene was over with. I covered my face for that part!!! The only one I need to see now is Black Swan. My brother raves about it, but hubby won’t go see 😦

  12. I still need to go see Black Swan.

    I don’t think anyone else has commented on this, but I’m going to. I need to go to a bra fitting, too, because I have a strange feeling I’m not wearing the right size. Was it weird?

  13. I loved 127 hours!!! I walked out of there with the biggest crush on James Franco!!!!

  14. Ohmygosh I cannot stop thinking about tomato basil soup now! I need to find a good local one b/c I wouldn’t know which recipe to try from the 5 bajillion that are online right now! yikes!
