I guess in total we maybe got 9 inches of snow?   Our gazebo looks so naked and sad:

Breakfast was more overnight oats, 1 oz. granola and 1/2 a container of 0% Chobani – I was surprised how long this kept me full – probably because of the added protein of the yogurt?

Yesterday’s lunch was inspired by Mari!  The other day she made a tofu quesadilla and I knew I had all the fixins to make a tofu taco!  Before work I sauteed some red peppers:

not too long because I still like a crunch to my peppers

And then I diced up two servings of tofu – each serving is only 60 calories.  I Pam fried the tofu and sprinkled taco seasoning over the top.

My thought was to have two corn tortilla tacos, but for the life of me, I couldn’t find them, so it was on to Plan B.  I used 1 flour tortilla (100 calories) and then left some of the filling on the side – I actually ended up mixing in salsa with the extras and it was really good!  I had 1 ounce of tortilla chips on the side.

On the taco:  baby spinach, 1/4 cup refried beans, 1/2 ounce cheddar cheese, cilantro, red peppers and salsa – delicious!

This is one of my favorite salsas – even though I have to eat around the onions, it has a wonderful flavor.  If you ever get to go to a Rick Bayless restaurant in Chicago, you will not be disappointed!  Also he has a bunch of his recipes here if you are interested.

So here comes the impromptu part.  Hannah had to work yesterday afternoon – because of the weather situation, Tony dropped her off at work and she needed to be picked up at 6:15.  So there wasn’t time to make and eat dinner before picking her up, and we’d be eating pretty late if we ate after we got home, so we decided to go out!

It’s a new chain restaurant that opened up in Crystal Lake called Jameson’s.   Tony and I both had a beer:

And I ended up getting the bacon cheeseburger – apparently this place is known for their steak and burgers.  One thing Tony has taught me is to order what a restaurant is known for – you wouldn’t order a lasagna at an Irish Pub!

I am not that huge of a steak fry fan – I maybe ate about six of them.  I only ate half of the burger too – it was good but the meat was under seasoned – Tony and I both added salt and that did the trick.  I guessed my half burger at 400 calories.  Does that sound about right?

So thankfully because my breakfast and lunch were on the healthy side, I still came in okay for the day – including the beer!

Off to scrape the snow off the cars and get ready for work.  Happy Hump Day! 😀
