Moshulu

April 11, 2011

So this weekend was much more relaxing then the last one of staying up until 5am and boozing. Not that I didn’t enjoy that but it’s always nice to not be hungover some weekend mornings.

Saturday (fitness) I woke up and did a take 2 on the trail run that was interrupted by my stomach ache on Thursday. I did 4 miles and averaged about a 9 min mile. it was a gorgeous day and I was glad to start it running outside.

Here are some eats from the weekend. I was pretty good about snapping photos.

Prerun: I had a fiber one that I forgot to snap a pic of.

Post run light brunch (bread and fresh mozz) at Agiato Bread Co in Manayunk:


I also had quite a few sips of Dan’s beer. Never heard of this brewery but this was really good. Hoppy but not too hoppy for me.


Coffee light frappuccino with extra coffee and half a rice krispie treat (not as good as they look! Too hard).


Special dinner at the Moshulu pre Mary Poppins… Aka we’re on a boat.


I had the most amazing scallops, lots of the delicious warm crusty bread, and tastes of all the sides.


Espresso with frangelico…mmmm


After dinner Sweet Endings yogurt:


Sunday was used for running some errands and lazily lying around.

Breakfast at Ruby’s. They had turkey sausage!


I made spaghetti and meatballs.


Later Lauren and I took a stroll for dessert and wound up with these cupcakes from LeBus split. Mmmmmm icing.


Hot jumbalaya!

Uneventful day until dinner.

Breakfast was a toasted apple cinnamon fiber one muffin with spray butter and an apple.


Morning snack was half a pint of Blueberries. This batch was better then the other. More tart berries. And a few cocoa roast almonds.


Lunch was a safe way brand chicken and wild rice soup. I think I have officially decided i don’t love wild rice. The aftertaste is weird. This soup was good though. Lots of carrots but not enough chicken.


I had some special k garIic herb crackers on the side. These were delicious and only 90 calories for 24 chips. They donthave much fiber or protein but I bought for the volume.


Afternoon snack was the other half of the blueberry pint.


Later I was still hungry and had a handful of soy nuts.


Vita top in my winter coat.


Fitness: normal wed routine (see my workouts tab). Today I added a bunch of moves I learned from 6 week 6 pack. For some reason when was the leader of these they didn’t seem as hard as when Jillian Michaels leads but still nice to mix up the class a bit.

Dinner was a lovely meal and nova bball. Watch at Jae’s. he made a jumbalaya type dish. It was awesome!


Hoot jumbalaya:
-Spanish rice with peppers and onions
-shrimp coated in Moroccan spice
-mango and jalapeƱo turkey sausage

sides:
-stuffed mushroom with tomato and mozz
-garlic bread

The jumbalaya was a good amount of spiciness.


The stuff mushroom was a delicious addition as well.


I went back for more garlic bread because it had a crispy crust and a soft middle. Sooo good.


Glass of vin on the side.


Then nova beat Marquette. Nice little dinner.

Pardon the photos. Not that my photos are ever that spectacular but my battery died today so these are from the iPhone.
