As you may already know from yesterday’s post, I wasn’t feeling great and I missed yoga 😦 I didn’t wake up until 8:35! I guess I just need the rest since I am sick and had a stressful week. I started the day with half a moral fiber bran muffin from Trader Joe’s topped off with a little almond butter. Eh…It was ok, I am pretty sure it was the first bran muffin I have ever had.
On the side, I had this little orange for a vitamin C kick.
We didn’t really do much because we were both sick and not feeling up to much. We filed our taxes (boo!!) and then made some lunch. I made Amy’s texas veggie burger on whole wheat english muffins with cheese, pickles, ketchup and mustard. The dear husband thought they tasted like “real” burgers.
On the side, we had spicy blue corn chip and guacamole from Whole Foods. yum!
I still felt a little hungry so I had a small bowl of greek yogurt topped with lemon sauce.
After the yogurt, we hit the road to pick up more tissues and a prescription. We decided to give the new local Thai place a try to see if it would open up our sinuses. We typically have to drive about 30 minutes for Thai Food so we had high hopes because this place was only 10 minutes away. We started with jasmine tea
and summer rolls. The tea was tasty but the summer rolls were very bland. This was our first clue.
Next up was bang bang shrimp. The last time we had bang bang shrimp it was at The Bone Fish grill and it was spectacular. Maybe our standards were too high but this time it really sucked. It was very grainy and reminded us both of dirt. The shrimp tasted like the kind you buy in the freezer section at the supermarket, I only ate two of them.
At this point, we weren’t even excited about our entrees. I ordered my favorite, Drunken Noodles, which I always order when we go for Thai. Besides being so hot I could hardly eat it, it was flavorless. The dear husband thought his Pad Thai was pretty flavorless as well. We both only took a couple of bites before calling it quits. Thank goodness we had a coupon!
Once we were home, I had a small piece of leftover brownies. I can’t decide if I like these things better warm or at room temp. Whoever wins these babies in Meghann’s Bake Sale is going to be very pleased.
