Happy Monday to ya!
Yesterday morning during Spin, the instructor asked us about 30 minutes into class, “who wants to go 30 minutes longer?” Had I not consumed 5 days worth of food at La Fondue last night, I might have not raised my hand. But I was in it for the long haul. Usually Spin is about 45-50 minutes with a few teachers stretching to 55 minutes. A 75 minute class may be borderline cruelty. I have a feeling I’m going to be quite sore today.
Speaking of La Fondue, it was date night for Zach and me. And also a joint birthday celebration since we both share January birthdays and likely wouldn’t go out for each. I think I was as excited to dress up as I was to eat 4 decadent courses:
You gotta also appreciate the background babygate decor right (and the horribly fuzzy photos..sheesh)? I thought about taking pics during dinner, but meh, didn’t feel like it. After feasting and drinking for over 2.5 hours straight, I looked like I was about 5 months pregnant. I vowed not to eat ever again…or until yesterday morning. Whichever came first.
The rest of the weekend was filled with the usual including errands, coffee breaks, lunch meet ups, mommy group, and Indian food for dinner Friday:
Vindaloo paneer (sadly the curry was jarred, but the paneer was sautéed separately along with red onions and peas), plus roasted cauliflower with turmeric, and a bit of rice and tortilla (sub for the naan). Quite good, but I’m dying for some Darbar in Palo Alto. Any takers?
Oh I also baked some cranberry, white chocolate chip oatmeal cookies (recipe from the container of oats). Again, no pictures, because I was too lazy. And a note to Zach’s coworkers, he was supposed to bring about 2 dozen of them to work on Friday but he forgot, so I had to pawn them off elsewhere ;)
And with that, time to get this week started….
