This weekend was.... Bad. As in, junk-food-hangover, gained-a-zillion-pounds bad.
On Friday we went to the Schenectady Bomber's with a friend, and went nuts. Wings (delicious, in a dedicated fryer), tacos (hard shells are gluten free) and happy hour margaritas made the night incredibly entertaining, fun and calorie-dense. Then Saturday we went to Outback Steakhouse to celebrate my sister-in-law's birthday. We had salad, meals, and then had brownies and cupcakes back at our house for dessert... everything was very tasty, but I'm in a bit of a salt and fat coma at the moment.
While I like to make sure my pantry is stocked at this time of year, this week the main focus is getting everything out of the freezer in preparation for hosting Thanksgiving. This means, relatively little grocery shopping and eating mostly what comes out of our pantry and freezer. No worries, though, we'll stock up again after the holiday. :-)
So, here goes:
Saturday - We went to Outback Steakhouse.
Sunday - I promised my hubby baked macaroni and cheese. And since he's outside with a leaf blower as I type this blog entry, I should probably deliver, right? I'll make it with Bionaturae elbows. On the side I'll serve stewed tomatoes and steamed green beans. I'll partake in a teeny-tiny bit of pasta and mostly veggies.
Monday - Class night. Is it over yet? :-)
Tuesday - Frozen wild salmon with risotto and some sort of frozen veggies. Either broccoli or snap peas.
Wednesday - Spaghetti with hot Italian sausage and red sauce.
Thursday - Leftovers, quickly before running to the store and doing the bulk of our Thanksgiving shopping.
Friday - Boys' night (hubby's on his own), and Girls' night with the book club girls, yay!
