Good morning! Are you ready for the start of a new work week? I am. I’m ready for it to be a great week. Last night’s dinner definitely kicked it off on the right foot!
Last Night’s Dinner
Yesterday afternoon, Mal (and Murphy) picked me up from the bus station in Boston. On the ride home, I mentioned that I was hungry, so Mal suggested getting Lime Leaf (our favorite Thai place) for dinner, which was an awesome idea. I didn’t feel like cooking and Thai food sounded, oh, so delicious.
I ordered the Lime Leaf Noodle (like I always do): rice noodles with egg, peanuts, scallions, turnips, bean sprouts, and chili paste, topped with crispy chicken. It is simply amazing.
Surprisingly, I’ve never ordered anything else besides the Lime Leaf Noodle from Lime Leaf. I rarely order the same thing twice from a restaurant, but I just love this dish so much, I don’t think a different one could ever live up to it. (Obviously, I am psyched about the leftovers for lunch today!)
Mal and I ate dinner on the couch while watching the Pats game, so, of course, the pug stayed close by and hoped for dropped food. He’s such a little piranha.
This morning, I woke up craving peanut butter, so I made a big bowl of oatmeal with cinnamon, raisins, ground flaxseed meal, and a big scoop of Teddie. (I later went back for a second scoop.) I also drank a glass of Caramel Bark Pecan iced coffee with soy milk. So delish.
Mal and I love playing Would You Rather, so we pose questions to each other all of the time. His are usually a lot more ridiculous (and typically more disgusting) than mine, but they always make me laugh and get me thinking.
It’s Monday morning, and my brain is still in slow motion after this weekend’s adventures in New York City, so I thought a game of Would You Rather would be a fun way to start the week. Ready? Go!
