So tonight I saw Hunger Games. Yes- me, your mom and six million others went to the theater today to catch the movie of the year. I want to talk about it nonstop to everyone but I realize that there are three people who haven't seen it yet so I won't spoil it. But...don't bother reading the rest of my post. Just so watch the movie. It's so good that I had to pee for the last 90 minute of the film but REFUSED to get up and go to the bathroom. No way I could leave.
Post-movie Tim and I couldn't really agree on a dinner place so he got a burger and I got a salad from Panera. I know, I know - I got a salad. But it was kind of awesome. Plus I got a weird berry tea that is kind of like crack. Delicious.
I missed the memo about having to buy a cool shirt in order to attend the Hunger Games movie. I guess I'll be team Ralph Lauren. He must have been one of the tributes that died right away? Anyway...Thai Chopped Chicken Salad. Spicy peanut sauce, cilantro, chicken breast, roasted carrots, roasted peppers and edamame.
Salad for dinner on a Friday night was a little too virtuous so I was ready for something more indulgent. Red wine and chocolate sounds good, right? How about together? Not so much. Has anyone ever tried this before? It boggles.
This morning I had one of my favorite workouts of late - a circuit workout with Tim. I spin for ten minutes while he runs, and then we do ten minutes of : push-ups, planks, crunches, teasers, side crunches, tricep dips, bicep curls and back rows. Then repeat times three. I'm always exhausted at the end but having Tim watch me makes me work harder.
I don't know if those arm workouts are working but tonight I could barely stir the batter for the brownies I made (in the oven...smell so good) so I guess it's doing something.
Chocolate red wine = awesome combination or gastronomic travesty?
Blech. Just no. What's wrong with a glass of red wine with chocolate on the side? WHY???!
Do you wait for brownies to cool before cutting and serving? Be honest.
Never. I hate that they put that on the box. I have to ate least scoop out one corner with a spoon while the rest cools.
