Sunday things

So, I have successfully been a waste of life so far today. It's 3:00 pm and I'm still in my sweatpants {note: this is somewhat appropriate given the conversations of last night. The age-old question was posed over a plethora of TABs... which is actually better: sweatpants, or no pants?}

It has been a great extended weekend. Although my Red Sox pretty much laid down to the Yankees on Friday night at Fenway, me and tt still enjoyed our night away. The plethora of TABs really began upon arrival in Beantown. If you know me, you know I don't truly love beer, but can't say no to Boston Beer Works Blueberry. I actually went in a different direction this time {gasp!} and had Watermelon instead. And that was quite the delight to start my evening off right. La la la. It was packed by the time we got there, since of course we didn't leave the house when we initially anticipated, since of course I didn't leave work when I initially anticipated. Why I bother with half-days I will never know- I have such a hard time leaving! In any event, we ended up having plenty of time to walk around at Fenway and peruse. I really wanted to find a Boston Strong t-shirt but was unsuccessful. I let myself take an evening off from the Weight Loss Challenge, because really you can't go to Fenway Park and not enjoy a hot dog. And beer{s}.

The fun continued yesterday, even after our return to the lovely state of Connecticut. I missed our company party since we were away, but we were able to meet up with all my peeps afterwards at my friend Erin's house. We stayed a little too late, which leads me to my current state of sweatpants and couch-dom. tt went golfing, and so I'm biding time before I have to leave to pick up Cecelia from the "spa" and have been spending my day perusing the internet for honeymoon ideas {we actually might have made a decision!! eek!} and recipes for this week to get me back on track. I have found, as always, if I can cook, I can try to stay within the diet walls. If we go out, all bets are off. 

I have found a few really exciting new ones for this week that I am eager to try out. Red Pepper Pesto Halibut; Lemon Chicken with an herb salad; and crock-pot Buffalo Chicken lettuce wraps since I am working out of our other office on Wednesday and need something easy. And I found a new stackable salad that I can make in my mason jars for lunch that includes a Coriander-Yogurt dressing. Umm...YUM! It will be a nice detour from the usual tuna salad that can get ever so boring week in and week out. 

That being said, I'm skipping a recipe post today, but will def get the above recipes posted this week once I can give my own little wisdom. Also, I plan to start getting better about photographing my recipes, so any guidance on this would be helpful. I know that there are tons of tricks and lighting things that I need to learn, but I am thinking that overall, having good photos would this little blog even more enjoyable for you, my foodie readers! xx
