Are you sick of seeing my chia pudding?! Ha – I am not sick of eating it. Normally I am all for mixing up my breakfasts every day, but when it makes so much, it’s so easy to grab and go. This is a small jelly jar, so that’s half a cup of chia pudding with yogurt, blueberries, banana and some Safe + Fair chocolate granola – all for 5 points.
What a gorgeous day in Chicago yesterday! In the low 50s – yes!
We walked to the fancy Apple store – I had to get one last gift for Jacob. They have free classes you can take to learn about different products. Yesterday they had a class on time-lapse photography.
Apparently I forgot to take a picture of my Italian sausage soup 😀
I was able to switch night secretary nights with another woman so I could leave on time. I love getting off the train and it’s still light out!
We went to a place called The Onion Pub for Jacob’s birthday. I always forget how much I love this place. I had every intention of getting the ahi tuna salad, but when I saw the havarti dill pickle burger on the menu, that’s what my mouth said when the server was at our table. 😀
But guess what? I didn’t even eat half of that burger. And I ate about 6 tater tots. And I had a beer. And it was delicious!
On the drive home though, I started thinking . . . what happened to my plan??!! And then I stopped and thought – I ordered what I wanted, ate until satisfied and today I have my food packed for the day and it’s all good! Now, if I went to Burger King for breakfast today, ordered an Epic Burger with fries and a shake for lunch and pick up Lou Malnati’s for dinner tonight – now that would be eating like an asshole. I just enjoyed a delicious burger on my son-in-laws birthday and am moving on.
Oh, and I did have a tiny slice of Portillo’s Chocolate Cake, because its only the best chocolate cake on the planet.
Happy Thursday friends – make it a great day!
