I have to say that after the trip to India, the Christmas feast, and the leftovers after, I’m back to being in my routine of making oatmeal/smoothies for breakfast, something for lunch (sandwich/leftovers) and a healthy dinner. Oh how I missed my routine!
So, say a big welcome back to my bowl of oats!!
I love a good bowl of cinnamon oats with a dollop of pumpkin butter – yep, that’s right – I’m still not over pumpkin yet!
For lunch, we went to McAlister’s Deli for the first time.
I don’t usually go out for lunch (as much as I want to), but Binks and I stepped out of the norm. As some of you know, sandwiches are my favorite food.
So, I ordered half a grilled chicken club and a cup of chili.
Binks ordered half a submarine and a cup of chicken tortilla soup.
I have to say, I was disappointed. You can’t tell from the pics, but the sandwiches were small (esp to be charging us approx. $18 for both meals), and really lacked flavor and any substance. Binks’ sandwich had a couple of slices of meat and my grilled chicken tasted like hospital food. The worst was Binks’ soup – usually tortilla soup is more watery, right? This soup had a consistency of broccoli and cheese, but more gelatinous-y.
What bothers me more is the service. Two little meals took about 20 minutes to bring out and the waitress cleared my table before I was even done. Game over.
I’m sorry McAlister’s. Considering, I don’t go out to lunch much and sandwiches are my favorite food ever – you scored a 2/10.
Dinner was the best yet. I didn’t feel like a whole meal but was craving dough balls like mad. So, after much fighting with my sofa, I got up.
And, look what happened:
Can we say money shot? (I didn’t let them cool…whoops!)
Ahh…It’s good to be home.
*Update: The one thing I’m still off on when it comes to routine is my exercise routine. What do you all do for exercise? I don’t know if with the weather I can run outside or at least trust myself to run outside. So, what do you do?
