The Luckiest

Seriously how lucky am I?  Andrew blogged for me yesterday and made me a fabulous dinner!  Andrew now walks around saying he’s a Super Star because of his guest post.  He loved reading through the comments!  Thanks so much for welcoming him!

I think he did a great job blogging, but unfortunately not so good guessing what I ate.   For breakfast yesterday I had a sandwich thin with pb.  Kinda close to what he guessed I would have for lunch though.

Before lunch I ate a peach.  The juiciest peach of the season so far!

We had a pot luck lunch yesterday at work.  I forgot to bring anything in though so I felt really bad eating the food others had brought in.  I’m weird that way.  I was planning on having that in the morning though but then chickened out.  Although I’m sure no one would have noticed or cared that I hadn’t.  Instead I ran out and got what I was really craving.  A multigrain bagel toasted with butter (lightly) from Dunkin Donuts.

Such great texture!

As I was walking through the area of the pot luck later on I saw a lone piece of watermelon.  I had a feeling if I didn’t rescue it, it would just get thrown out, so I snatched it up.  Aren’t you proud Sarah?

I was so excited to come home to my dinner.  Andrew loves making things in the crockpot and he did an awesome job.  You can read how he made the salsa chicken here.

Just look at that cheesy goodness!

On the side he made Near East Rice Pilaf.  I had that bulked up with some left over veggies.  I had 1 piece of broccoli and a bunch of green beans.

This morning I woke up later then I wanted to, we had big plans to go see 3 prospective wedding venues.  I quickly showered, got Andrew up, got ready, and had to run out the door.  Totally forgetting breakfast!  I hate skipping meals!  After we were done at the first venue we had an hour before our appointment at the next, they were only about 10 minutes apart so we stopped at my favorite pizzeria on the beach.  I haven’t been there since the summer between freshmen and sophomore year in high school, that was 9 years ago (oh my God I’m getting old).  The slices are GIGANTIC (bigger then my head) and so good.  Andrew had never had it before so I was excited to show him the biggest pizza I had ever seen.

On 2 paper plates!  A plain slice with Andrew’s hand as reference.

Andrew got a Chicken Parm slice.  He loved it!

So good!

And you can’t have a slice of this pizza without Diet Dr. Pepper.

After our second venue we had a while before we went to the next so we stopped by my mom’s house to visit.   We visited the last venue and then came home for dinner. I had no clue what I wanted so I decided to have a smoothie.  Easy, fast, and filling, perfect meal for me tonight.

This smoothie contained a lot:

  • skim milk
  • POM juice
  • raspberries
  • a banana
  • soy protein powder
  • 1/2 a cup oats
  • and pineapple chunks

Well my 2 girlfriends just got here to enjoy some cocktails on the deck (no wine for me this week, just liquid poison (vodka and diet coke).  Have a great night bloggies!

    That is one crazy-big piece of pizza–it looks glorious!
    Your smoothie sounds fab as well.

    HOLY PIZZA!! That is a gigantic piece of pizza, but I bet it tasted amazing!

    The chicken dish looks great, it’s very similar to a recipe I make at home, but slightly different so I’ll have to try it out and compare 🙂

  • 10. Michelle  |  June 20, 2009 at 1:48 pm

    Everyday the titles get better lol. Also, that pizza is HUGE!!!!!!!

  • 11. Hallie  |  June 20, 2009 at 5:36 pm

    I used to feel the same way at work potlucks, but there is always WAY too much food that I sometimes feel better when I don’t contribute…less waste at the end of the lunch! And if there isn’t enough food, then I’ll just eat my own thing. If your work is like mine, no need to stress AT ALL (but better that you got what you were craving, anyway!)

  • 12. Emily  |  June 20, 2009 at 5:54 pm

    gahhhhh Can Andrew come cook for me?! haha

    Pizza & Diet Dr. Pepper! Now that is my kind of special meal! 😉

  • 13. Tina  |  June 21, 2009 at 7:46 am

    Woah, that is the biggest slice of pizza I have ever seen! And usually it’s hard to interpret just by seeing a photo how big/small something actually is. My brother once ordered a huge pizza when we were in the US. We were about to pass out when they came out with it. It was rediculous!

  • 14. Melissa @ For the Love of Health  |  June 21, 2009 at 2:44 pm

    oh pizza heaven!! 🙂

  • 15. Lynn (The Actors Diet)  |  June 21, 2009 at 6:05 pm

    Oh I miss Dunkin Donuts…for some reason they don’t have them on the west coast.

  • 16. Sarah  |  June 22, 2009 at 10:35 am

    mmm, i hate to admit it, but dunkin donuts has amazing bagels. and yes, i am so proud of your watermelon rescue!

    andrew’s crockpot chicken and salsa looks so perfect, and i loved his post! you are the luckiest … but he is the luckiestest!

    i hope you had a great weekend, danielle! 🙂

    What a fantastic food day! Though the pizza looks scrumptious (as does cheesy chicken) my heart belongs to that perfect bottom shaped peach!!
