A Few Too ManyPosted: October 18, 2009
Yikes, last night got a little out of control, but it was fun and a good time to splurge. It was Nick’s Mom’s birthday dinner at Libratore’s and that usually involves bottles of wine.
Before we getting to dinner I still have the beginning of my day…
I ended up finding out that the gym was going to be open until 4 so I got down there around 10 to do 20min hill on the t-mill, 10min 10 incline at 4, 20min 1 incline at a 7mph. I also did some core work and push ups before leaving.
The weather was/is still really gross around here (I saw SNOW on cars at Trader Joe’s this morning!!!) all I wanted was grilled cheese and tomato soup.
I also had an Adore disk for some chocolate!
Around 5:30 Nick’s mom and step dad came over for a drink before dinner. I had some goat cheese and mixed nuts set, but I was still pretty full from lunch and I knew lots of food and drink was to come.
Dinner was fun, lots of wedding talk for Nick’s sister. Nick and Wally wanted to kill themselves 🙂
I got the lemon salad to start. Now I love lemon, but there was just a little too much lemon on there even for me! I was really tasty so I was upset that I couldn’t finish it.
For my main course I got the linguini with white clam sauce. One of my favorite light dishes!
I split a bottle of not the best Chianti with Nick and Wally, had some pumpkin cake, an Irish coffee and a pear vodka and soda.
You think that was all??? Nope…I must say when Nick and I got home we played some mortal kombat (I got creamed) and I also ate a ton of Kashi crackers, mixed nuts from earlier and we split the last serving of pumpkin ice cream…yep we had been drinking!
Overall it was a fun night with good people. What more could you ask for?
The Raven’s have a huge hard game today… fingers crossed!
When I woke up I had no idea what I wanted but I had 1 egg taking up a lot of room in the fridge with its carton. So I had a two sided breakfast on toast.
Hot sauce that would make GDW proud!
I am making the Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Coconut bars that I saw Krista Make.
Here are the ingredients and I will let you know how they tastes with dinner!
