Did you all have a wonderful weekend? Mine was alright despite the fact that I was sick the whole time. Nothing very exciting to report though.
I ate a lot of spicy foods. I still crave spice when I’m sick. Dinner Saturday night was a slow-roasted sweet potato with 2% Fage, shredded cheddar and lotsa Frank’s.
I probably pushed myself a little too far with workouts this weekend. After I worked at the part-timer on Saturday I went to the gym to do 3 miles on the elliptical and Sunday morning I ran my 5-miler in accordance with the training plan. It was rough, but not as bad as I was expecting it to be. I paid for it later though, as I started to feel about ten times worse as the day progressed. Oops.
Later on I went to my mom’s for soup. She was upset that she didn’t get to spend my real birthday with me and wanted to cook for me. I was cool with that. She made butternut squash soup, corn chowder and goat cheese and aparagus panini. I had a little of everything.
Then I had leftover corn chowder for dinner. You can find the recipe on my Foodeas page, it’s a good one.
Even the soup couldn’t heal me though. I was in bed before 8 p.m. last night.
On a completely random and unrelated note, how did I not know that there was a mango Chobani flavor? Why hasn’t anyone blogged about this? I tried it over the weekend. Not as good as the pineapple, but still delicious.
Well, I managed to get an appointment with my incredibly hard to get into doctor in a bit, so I’d better get some work done before I have to leave. I probably wouldn’t have come in this morning, but I have a proposal to deliver. In the cold… in heels… while sick. Joy.
What is your favorite way to enjoy a sweet potato? I have to admit that I’m actually not that crazy about sweet potato fries anymore. I like it as featured above or in soups/Indian food and that’s about it.
