Today was one of those crazy days at work where odd things seemed to happen one after the other….lots of little issues cropped up throughout the day. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
I had a late lunch at my desk of salad and an orange…
Tonight – I was so excited because Anthony and I made plans to go out for a quick dinner before our newlywed group…sometimes it is so nice to have dinner out on a weeknight…time to talk, no cooking, no cleaning…just what I needed today. We decided on TGI Fridays since it is nearby and we hadn’t been there in quite a while. I really like their Right Portion, Right Price entrees- they are much more reasonably sized than many restaurant meals!
I had a glass of Shiraz sangria to start – it was so fruity and delicious!
And, I tried the DragonFire Chicken as my entree- grilled Kung Pao chicken, brown rice, pineapple pico de gallo, mandarin oranges, and broccoli. It was really good and a great portion size. I ate about 85% of the plate and was perfectly satisfied.
We picked up a couple of desserts to go to share with our newlywed group at Tom and Anita’s…since they always serve us delicious coffee, we “need” a little dessert to go with it! I had a small piece of Reese Peanut Butter Pie and Vanilla Bean cheesecake…both were phenomenal and again, the portion was perfect….and the coffee was divine as usual!
At our weekly newlywed group, we had a good discussion on “The Art of Listening and Reflection” – man, something that we can all probably stand to work on (me especially)! We discussed the importance of being quick to listen and slow to speak…I’m so lucky because that comes naturally to Anthony…not so much to me! These discussions are so valuable as a reminder not to take your spouse for granted and to remember to tune in and listen to what they are saying, and make sure you truly understand the meaning behind their words. Good things to practice!
Thanks for reading and thanks for your great suggestions on uses for Sriracha from my post a couple of days ago- I will put them to use!!
Have a great night! I’m trying to get in bed early (?)….Goodnight!!
