If the first day set any sort of precedent, 2010 is going to be a great year! And in case I forgot that it’s not 2009, we got lots of new calendars for Christmas.
Today was all about errands; Office Max, grocery restocking, present returns. I have my foot surgery this Monday so I’m trying to get all standing activities out of the way. In between errands I had a lovely late lunch -
The pasta was a Lean Cuisine. I love how packed with veggies it was, lots of zucchini and the marinara was delicious.
The bread made the meal however. I don’t know how I managed to only eat half of this cheddar and jalopeno bialy!
Spicy and cheesey and yum! I also had a tasty bite of Adam’s cookie.
Our final errand took us to the mall, where I discovered my new favorite restaurant – Jack Astors. There were about 80 things on the menu that sounded good and pretty much everything was affordable. The booze prices were ridiculous low. Plus, they let you draw on the table!
Adam’s art was a bit less 6th grade than mine -
I promise I did my drawing before my drinking,
Raspberry Lemon raspberry vodka, lemon, sprite, and soda. Yums, my favorite drinks are always sour.
And dinner was a Chopstick Chicken Salad Grilled chicken breast on a bed of mixed greens, red pepper, cilantro, toasted sesame seeds and cucumbers, drizzled with zesty sesame soy dressing. Topped with crispy wonton strips, spicy pecans, and sun-dried cranberries.
Ah-maze-ing! Next time I would ask for dressing, etc on the side but it tasted awesome. We were running a bit late to see a movie and I ended up bringing the second half to the theatre and eating it with chopsticks mid-show. Strangest movie snack ever?! I also split a small popcorn with butter with the husband.
The only thing that could have distracted me from that salad was an incredible movie, and Sherlock Holmes delivered. It was my new favorite movie! It was funny as hell and fully captivating for 2hours. I love love loved the costumes and setting and artistic shooting.
Now I’m planning on settling in to fill out my new planner before bed. There is something deeply satisfying to me about a fresh, crisp planner and I’m so excited I could burst!
Do you use a planner to keep track of your life? Love or loath it?
