Guys, at this rate, going meatless is becoming a normal part of my routine.Â Very comfortable with it now.
Then again, it’s easy to do when you have a restaurant downstairs selling awesome vegetarian/vegan sandwiches at lunch time. 🙂
- The usual coffee treat from Starbucks
- Fage yogurt with peach puree. Yum!!
- Half of the French Onion Soup Melt sandwich from Mendocino Farms.Â Grilled onion on melty aged gruyere on pretzel roll.
- Organic tropical iced tea
- A nice dose of sunshine
- Afternoon snack: crackers and a big spoonful of whipped cream cheese.
- Trader Joe’s frozen entree of paneer masala and spinach rice.
Satisfactory level: So so.Â Well, the breakfast wasn’t all that substantial and the lunch, although nice, was a little bit on the light side.Â It also didn’t help that I was cutting up 7 lbs. of meat to make the St. Patrick’s Day Guinness Beef Stew when I’d usually be cooking dinner either.Â LOL.
Thoughts: Like I said, it’s becoming more natural and less of an obligation.Â I was VERY tempted to drink while I cook dinner but I did very good.Â Then again, knowing that I’d be indulging the following day is a pretty good motivation.
Oh yeah, St. Patty’s day at my house was off the hook.Â We have a full house this year with my friends and Twitter gang.Â Lots of food but not a lot of booze consumed.Â Well, you know, it’s in the middle of the week after all.Â But we managed to have a few Irish car bombs thrown about.
I had two. And was still standing at the end of the night. Yey me, the wayward alcoholic!
I don’t know why nobody has pointed out before, but my Twitter/blogger friend Dave Conrey called me a Thai-rish.
Kiss me, I’m Thai-rish!Â Â LOL.
He said he’s going to make a t-shirt out of that.Â I’m still waitin’, Dave!
The week of fun-ness to balance out the crazy work week continues tomorrow as Brandon and I will go on a little romantic getaway to Sunset Strip for the night.
Well, you’ll have to tune back in later to find out about that now, won’t you? 😉
