I didn’t have anything at the house to make for lunch today, but hubby was sweet enough to offer to drop something off for me.
He brought me 2 different bags of lunchtime goodness.
In the brown bag, I got a half Cafe Wrap sandwich from Jason’s Deli with fresh fruit, dipping sauce (which I don’t use), and some mints.
A closer look at the wrap – inside: turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and some sort of sauce.
I brought out some Kashi Honey Sesame TLC Crackers I’ve been saving at my desk for a simple side.
In the white bag, I had a super special surprise – a vanilla cupcake with chocolate icing from my favorite cupcake bakery, Polka Dot Bake Shop. I just love these little things and this is my favorite flavor combo.
After work, I headed over to Zumba!! I was a little on the fence about whether I should go or not because I have my instructor training tomorrow, but I figured if the instructors could do the class and training, why couldn’t I? I pushed through and even got to dance on the stay to one of the songs! So fun!
I was going to pour myself a nice big post-workout glass of milk, but decided to do a play on this post-workout beverage by turning my skim milk into hot chocolate using some Hershey’s unsweetened cocoa powder and sugar. Following this recipe by Ellie Krieger, I started by making a paste.
I just added some skim milk, which I heated up in the microwave and I had a love post-workout snack.
In keeping with the bad habits of eating out too much this week, we got take-out for dinner from a local Mediterranean restaurant. I’d like to work on not making excuses for eating out (like I’m too busy). We were actually planning on cooking chicken tonight, but hubby suggested one of my fave take-out places I just caved. In my defense, I have been craving food from this restaurant for awhile now. 🙂
While I’ve got you, this is a little off topic, but hubby picked up a new flavor of bread for sandwiches this week:
Oregon Herb ! I haven’t had the chance to try this yet, but it sure smells great. My only beef is I’m not thinking this would taste good in one of my fave snacks – Almond Butter Toast. Doh!
Hubby also brought home something deliciously different – another new bread – Pecan Swirl . omg…this stuff is ridiculously good!
Look at those layers!
Yum! I did get to have one slice of this but hubby ate the rest of it! Guess we’ll have to try to get more next time. Either way, this stuff was delish and didn’t even taste like it was made with wheat bread.
Ok, I have to get some rest before instructor training tomorrow. G’night!
