Do you ever look back over a week and think “MAN, I have eaten out a lot!”? That was last week. Going into last week I didn’t think we’d be eating out that much but a bridal shower, date night, last minute lunch date, and dinner with family friends had me eating out more than I originally planned.
Thursday I attended a bridal luncheon at La Forcetta in Washington, DC.
The decor was so unique, with accents of black and orange throughout the restaurant. The chandeliers were just stunning!
To start, the waiter brought our table baskets of foccacia bread and plates of olive oil.
For lunch I ordered the marinara pizza which was not what I was expecting. Lesson learned, there’s a big different between marinara pizza and margarita pizza. My pizza had zero cheese on it, simply pizza crust, marinara sauce, and a little olive oil. My friend’s really enjoyed their meals so I’m thinking I just picked the wrong thing.
Friday night, after a really long week, Neal and I decided a date night was in order. We headed on down to Bar Louie, Neal’s new favorite spot!
It was not a healthy night to say the least. Neal ordered the buffalo chicken sandwich and I ordered the BLTT (Bacon, lettuce, tomato, and turkey). After two New Belgium Red Hoptober I was pretty full so I only ate half of my sandwich.
Though it wasn’t the healthiest, I had an absolutely wonderful time with my husband! A MUCH needed date night.
Yesterday was full of LOTS of last minute errands so Neal and I swung by Panera around 1:30PM for lunch.
Along side this awesome glass of acai iced tea I had a pick 2 with a bowl of black bean soup and half of the bacon turkey bravo sandwich. My favorites!
Then last night Neal and I took a very last minute trip up to Baltimore to see very dear friends of my family’s. It was so fantastic spending the evening with them and the restaurant we went to was AMAZING!
Miguel’s Cocina and Cantina is an upscale Mexican restaurant located in Baltimore, Maryland.
The decor, focused on the day of the dead, is festive, cultural, and unique.
To start, we were brought chips with two types of salsa and we ordered a small bowl of guacamole.
To wash it all down I ordered a glass of Breckenridge Brewery’s Agave Wheat.
For dinner, the 4 of us ordered a variety of different dinners and plates.
My favorite dish was the huitlacoche quesadilla, made with huitlacoche (corn fungus). It was DELICIOUS!!
I’m nervous that the past 4 days are going to set my diet back, but I just need to refocus and stick to my plan. My scaleless summer ends in just 5 days and I am praying to see my body weight below 220 come Thursday! To kick start my final week of my scaleless summer I’m going out for a 3 mile run. Happy Sunday!
