Hope everyone had a great week. For me, it was a busy one! I had dinner at home with the bf to start the week off, a lot of writing to cram in Tuesday, personal trainer and work out night Wednesday, and Thursday, a work housewarming happy hour. Friday was a work breakfast and relaxing evening and Saturday and Sunday, the bf and I headed to Mohegan Sun (more on that later!). Because I knew I would be eating out all weekend, I didn’t eat out nearly as much as usual during the week. I had a few groceries to use up, which kept my eating habits simple. Check it out for yourself in my eats from last week.
Where I ate and drank:
Monday: The usual Finagle-a-bagel breakfast provided by work, followed by tuna on a wheat wrap at Rebecca’s Café for lunch. Dinner, the bf cooked for me for Meatless Monday! So delicious. We had grilled salmon alongside salad and pasta pomodoro.
Tuesday: No eating out for me! Brought in wheat English muffins to eat all week for breakfast, so I had one with jelly alongside a green tea. For lunch, I had honey ham on a thin wheat deli roll with mustard and mixed greens and tomatoes from the bf’s garden. Snack was a TLC raspberry cereal bar along with an apple and dinner was kept simple with a salad and a few wheat crackers with cheese and turkey on them.
Wednesday: Another day of avoiding eating out! Started the day with an English muffin with pb and jelly. Lunch was a thin wheat deli roll with buffalo chicken slices with a small side of pasta salad. Snack I brought in a quarter cup of trail mix to nosh on before the work out! And dinner, I picked up a piece of already made chicken at Golden Goose and had it with salad from home. Dessert was a Fiber One brownie! I really am a fan of them – 90 calories!
Thursday: Yet another English muffin with jelly and for lunch, I went out with my business partner/co-worker for our last lunch before she is off on maternity leave. She had a craving for Buccieri’s Café, one of our favorites in Financial District, and Thursday night we had a work housewarming happy hour! The hostess- with- the-mostest served buffalo chicken dip, BLT dip, spinach and artichoke dip, and pesto topped Italian bread toasted with cheese on it. A nice spread to have with wine, vodka drinks, and pumpkin beer to go with it.
Recommend: Salem Street, Chicken Salad, Honey BBQ Chicken Salad, Blackstone Street.
Check out some of the snacks we had at the party:
Friday: The building management company (at our new office) was nice enough to cater a breakfast at work! They had a variety of bagels, muffins, and fruit, from Boston News Café, which I had never been to. I had a piece of a pumpkin muffin top and some of a sesame bagel with an iced coffee and was very satisfied with the selection. For lunch, I had brought in another buffalo chicken sandwich. Snack was a small slither of Colossal Cupcake from Crumbs for a co-worker’s b-day. And for dinner, I was tired and lazy and got one of my favorite cheap take-out meals, a Chipotle meat, pinto bean, and brown rice bowl.
