Happy Valentine’s Day Eve!
I may or may not have just eaten five frozen bite-sized midnight milky way bars in celebration.
Jeff and I decided to keep Valentine’s Day pretty low key this year. We’re just going to have a nice dinner at home and probably watch a million episodes of Diners, Drive-ins & Dives on the Food Network. Pretty perfect, if you ask me.
Speaking of perfect, I’m currently wrapped up in a blanket, sitting in my favorite chair near the window in our living room. I’ve had a ridiculously relaxing Wednesday night, complete with PJs, comfy socks and the simplest dinner I think I’ve ever made in my life (aside from a bowl of cereal, that is).
This, my friends, is Brown Rice, Lentils and Spinach. That’s it. Simple and delicious. And, just when you thought it couldn’t get any easier, will you believe me if I told you that the whole thing was made in less than 10 minutes and, get ready for it, in the mircrowave?!
Well, believe it, because that’s what happened. It’s the perfect, lazy dinner!
All together in one big mush:
You’re welcome. I’ll be signing autographs later.
Let’s move on to more important things, shall we?
Ashley and I started talking about a year ago when I first moved to DC. I’m so glad we finally had the opportunity to meet up, and at one of my favorite restaurants, no less!
Pizzeria Paradiso has three locations in the DC Metro area. Last night, Ashley and I met at the original in Dupont Circle.
We decided to split the Insalata Paradiso to start:
And I ordered an individual Bosco pizza on whole wheat crust for my entrée. I also added garlic because, really, what kind of person are you if you don’t add garlic to your pizza?
Yum. I love, love, LOVE Paradiso. I’m sort of a NY pizza snob (there! I said it), and this is probably my favorite place for pizza in DC.
Ashley and I had a great time and SO much to talk about. I love meeting like-minded bloggers and I see many other dinners with Ashley in my not-so-distant future!
Have you ever met up with a fellow blogger/tweeter? Tell me about it!
Random Fitness Update:
So, you may have seen on Twitter that I hurt my upper right arm somehow at the gym. I went to a Sports Medicine doctor today, and have a prescription for physical therapy. He thinks I strained the muscle. To say that I’m frustrated is an understatement. I feel like I just got back into my routine. I’m making the best of it, however, and still working on strength-training for my abs and lower body. And, of course, I’m still doing cardio. Here’s hoping for a speedy recovery!
How do you stay positive when dealing with a sports injury?
What are you plans for Valentine’s Day!?
Have a great Thursday and Happy Valentine’s Day!
