Prep Ahead!

On Saturday, we went to the BC game. It was absolutely freezing but we had amazing seats and it was a really fun game. Before the game, I went to the gym for an hour long spin class that was one of the worst classes I've ever taken. The music was terrible but I tried to imagine I was somewhere else and tried to get into as much as I could. After the class, I lifted my legs, did my hip excercises and stretched, a lot. Then at home, I put together that Portabella Mushroom Burger I wanted to make the other night. I put the sauteed mushroom on an Arnold Wheat Thin with Goat Cheese, Pesto and Banana Peppers. I ate this with spaghetti squash that I mixed with monterey cheese and salt and pepper. Great filling lunch!

After the game, we went to Tasca in Brighton, an amazing tapas restuarant. We ordered about 7 tapas between the 4 of us and sangria...mmmm. Then we continued drinking at other Brookline restuarants. We also made a new friend: DOMO!
Today, I went grocery shopping then prepped our dinners and lunches for the week. For lunches, I made Spicy Chili in the Slow-Cooker. (Which by the way does not deserve a photograph- reason #500 I hate slow cookers- they make everything look like mush!) Then I cleaned and sliced mushrooms and leeks, marinated steak tips with teriyaki sauce, sliced up Salmon Fillets and made a spicy honey mustard sauce to go over the salmon and made an Argula Salad with feta cheese, tomatoes and cucumbers. I love being ready for the week!

Tonight we drove to Dave's parents house for a nice Sunday dinner in the middle of October with... could it be... SNOW!! It's only October 18th!
