Seriously, is this true or is this true? I could make my mom’s recipe EXACTLY as written, but it doesn’t taste the same. She even makes toast better than I can. I don’t make things up.
I also will not make up the fact that I ate A LOT while at home this weekend. Gained a good 3 pounds overall, but hopefully it goes away quickly. I also haven’t been really working out due to sickness which doesn’t help things in the weight department.
Here’s a snapshot of what was consumed in the past week, starting with the drive to York Wednesday night. Granted this is only a snapshot. We also had pizza, Easter dinner, and candy. Lots and lots of candy.
First, we tried these new Lays chips. I’m not going to lie, I’m not really a fan of either of them, but I am not the biggest chip fan (other than BBQ chips). Travis and I shared the chicken and waffles on the way to Trav’s family, and those were pretty good. We tried the cheesy garlic bread on the way back, though, and ended up throwing some of them away. Not my favorite. Two of us couldn’t even finish a small bag. Have you tried these flavors?
On Thursday morning, we headed to Pittsburgh, but not before stopping at Rutter’s. I got coffee and an egg white sandwich for the ride.
After arriving at my parents’ house, we went to pick up some lunch. Fortunately/unfortunately, Five Guys and Panera are next to each other, so we had a pretty awesome lunch combo. I didn’t eat my soup because I ate too many fries. Don’t even care. So worth it.
On Friday, my sister, Travis, and I went to Mad Mex after running some errands. Let me just say I LOVE MAD MEX. We started off with a Pickadippa of fresh pico de gallo, XX cheese dip, and Kaya Yucatan Black Bean Dip. Seriously amazing. I think had some black bean soup and a veggie burrito. The burrito had pico de gallo, roasted corn, zucchini, grilled peppers and onions, black beans and Monterey Jack cheese. I ate all of it. ALL OF IT. And a glass of red sangria. Me? Drinking? It was so delicious. I love Mexican.
Then, later for dinner, we went to the Elks next to the house for dinner. Since it was a Friday during Lent, and I couldn’t eat meat, and I don’t like fish, I went with a classic grilled cheese. And more fries. When given a choice between chips and fries, I always pick fries.
Next up: post race grub. Aka a small bag of pretzels and one of these bad boys:
Love Eat’n Park smiley cookies! And then mommy got me Eat’n Park chicken noodle soup. They have the best noodles ever. Definitely helped with the sickness
Easter breakfast was amazing. Scrambled cheesy eggs, blueberry muffins, chocolate chip pancakes, and regular pancakes.
Easter dinner started with buffalo chicken dip and ended with cookies and Reese’s eggs with lots of goodness in between.
My last meal at home was a yogurt bowl with strawberries, cereal, and chocolate chips, which was awesome.
On the way back to Maryland, lots of coffee was consumed. I also got a salad from Sheetz that was called a grilled chicken salad but no chicken was found. FAIL.
Yesterday, we had ground turkey tacos with leftover goodness from my mom. I also had lots and lots of jelly beans. I used them for fuel during my 20 mile ride.
Dessert last night was in order to celebrate National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day!
Lots of eats. And I’m not even mad about the pounds gained. It was all worth it. And totally delicious.
