Have you ever had one of those days when you are starving all day long no matter how much you eat? Today is that day for me. I’m so hungry, I’m going to make up a new word for it right now. Ridicu-hungry.
Breakfast started out innocently enough with my normal oatmeal smoothie (lower sugar apples and cinnamon instant oatmeal, yogurt, unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze, and crushed ice). I got to work and forgot I had a Reeses Peanut Butter egg waiting for me, so I ate that. Then I got an IM from the hubs that he has fresh chocolate chip cookies in his office. Um, don’t mind if I do! Shortly before lunch, breakfast 2 happened (english muffin with PB & J and cinnamon).
For lunch, Hubs and I went to Orlando Ale House – our favorite spot to eat because you can special order anything on the menu – which we do. We shared the cup of chili for an appetizer, special ordered of course (minus the cheese, add jalapenos). They really jipped us on the jalapenos this time. Usually we can’t see the chili. Rude.
Hubs ordered the 35 fried shrimp dinner with fries, but special ordered with the shrimp grilled instead of fried and a plain baked potato instead of fries.
I ordered the zinger tacos, but special ordered with grilled chicken instead of fried and the hot sauce and bleu cheese dressing on the side. Usually I order no cheese too, but it’s Thursday and I’m feeling crazy. Crazy like a fox.
I ate almost all the rice and beans, 2 of the tacos, and the chicken out of the third taco. Then I pretended the lettuce and tomatoes in the third taco was a salad and ate that with the bleu cheese.
After lunch, the Holy Grail of desserts happened. My favorite dessert in.the.world. So far, at least. Behold the “Captain Jack’s Buried Treasure.” Even spoons sparkle in its presence.
That, my friends, is an Oreo and Heath ice cream pie with an Oreo crust. Somehow they manage to shove caramel up in there too.
Usually it’s sitting in a thick bed of melted chocolate, but we ordered it without the chocolate. Yeah. We special order our desserts too. But no chocolate on the bottom makes it healthy, right?
(Only answer option available: YES.)
Now, I’m thinking about opening the Easter basket I won yesterday and seeing how many Peeps I can shove in my mouth at once. I’d light them on fire like Tiffany suggested, but I don’t think that would fly at the office.
After telling you about my food extravaganza, I suppose I should admit that I’m going to cancel my gym membership at Planet Fitness this week. Planet Fitness is super cheap ($10 a month) but doesn’t offer spin classes and I really, really want to go back to spin. I miss it. So much. So I’m on the lookout for a new gym.
On a random topic, because it’s almost Easter, I’m going to make you look at my bunny sitting in her box last night.
I said LOOK AT HER!
Please don’t judge her double chin. She’s working on it.
And just when you thought it couldn’t get any cuter, check her out watching TV with daddy.
Do you special order food at restaurants? (I do it for EVERYTHING at every restaurant. It’s just easiest at Ale House.) What’s your favorite dessert at a restaurant? (I love the Captain the best, but I also love the Chocolate Volcano from Don Pablos.)
