Hiyas from the Chic house!
My basil plants are finally growing back after being attached by slugs. I managed to harvest both some green and purple basil leaves. Woohoo!
I used them in lunch today.
Leftover cooked pasta = pasta salad lunch.
I added chopped spinach, cherry tomatoes, feta cheese, basil…
…plus a balsamic vinaigrette.
Plus toasted pine nuts on top. Yum!
Guess what I got today?
My zumba instructor gear! I got my sign in sheets, class cards, and all that fun junk.
My first class starts next Tuesday! Can’t wait!
Lookie what I tried for a pre-workout snack today! A carrot cake Larabar (*)!
The bar looked just like the others and had a similar texture. I liked the chewy bites of what I presumed to be carrots.
I thought the flavor was not quite as spot-on as some others they have. It didn’t quite taste like carrot cake to me. It had a lot of spice and just didn’t remind me as much of the flavor as some others do. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoyed the bar, I just didn’t think it tasted like “carrot cake.”
Post work I was so excited to go back to ZUMBA! It had been almost a week. I expected it to be a bit rough since I hadn’t done it in awhile and it was but I pushed through and felt amazing and strong afterwards!
I worked up a real appetite for dinner tonight!
We had plans to go out to Brixx with Kath + Matt tonight. We have a lot of events planned with them since it’s their last weekend in town!
I started with a sampler – 420, Starhill Love, spaten, hoppyyum (that’s the best I can remember the names…lol).
Hubby and I split bruschetta over conversation with Kath and Michelle.
Also chatted with Kelly, but I forgot to get photos of everyone tonight!
Hubby and I also split a pizza – 1/2 BBQ Chicken and 1/2 Chicken Caprese on a whole wheat crust.
Both flavors were really good but I still love the BBQ chicken the best.
Post dinner we went in search of dessert.
I got a single scoop of half baked froyo. Woohoo, they actually let me have a kid’s size this time!
Post dinner, I hit up Ben + Jerry’s with Katie, Stew, Rachel, and hubby.
Lookie what else came in today! My business cards!!
The back. Look familiar? I just ate this cherry almond french toast recently!
