Take this, for instance. *In very damnlol fashion*
I AM POCAHONTAS.
Accept very pale and with not an ounce of Native American blood in me. Not to worry; Chuck has somewhere near, like, 1/4 Native American blood. So he makes up for it.
And please do not pay any attention to the dorm-room decor in the background. I let the hubs decorate. Except the painting on the wall. That choice was all me. I'll have to remember to snap a photo of it for ya'.
Yes, that lamp is missing its shade. I know I need to get a new one.
Anyway...back to the buffet. I pondered taking pictures, and asked Chuck if it would be weird, but eventually settled on just
I do have pictures of that Au Bon Pain Mayan Chicken Harvest Rice Bowl I had me the other day! Can we say nom nom nom? (side note: it has it's side effects. I became well-acquainted with the bathroom at dinner because this caught up with me........... tmi?)
That's white rice (because I'm ricist...har dee har har?) as I wasn't in the mood for brown rice, along with some chipotle-covered chicken breast, topped with mixed greens, cucumbers, diced tomatoes, and carrots. I'm proud to say it took my
So where were we? Ohhhh, right. The buffet. I ate everything! Nah, just kidding. I did have...three plates, though. Don't judge me? Not to worry, dahling, these were normal-sized dinner plates, not those ginormous ones that most people *ahem* seem to buy nowadays...
My first plate: I filled half that baby with some fresh baby spinach, cucumbers, green peppers, carrots, mushrooms, broccoli, and cauliflower. I also had a fried chicken thigh (because I'm a fat kid, people!), and grabbed two small pieces of breaded fish that I believe was cod, which I didn't finish because the breading tasted weird. I think I'll stick with that ohohohmygosh breaded (and fried!) catfish from Whole Foods.
Not too bad, if I do say so myself. Hey, I did have two salads that day, if we're being technical.
My second plate: A slice of pizza. Which sucked. A buttery, homemade (let me pretend!) yeast roll, and some popcorn shrimp. Now that I'm thinking about it, this was a rather small plate. Apparently there wasn't much variety Monday.
My third plate: Pan seared (itty bitty) shrimp and steamed vegetables drizzled with scampi sauce. They have a custom order steak and seafood bar that serves, well, steak, shrimp, tilapia, and scallops with the customary steak sauce, scampi sauce, lemon piccata, or spicy alfredo sauce.
For dessert I had some vanilla ice cream with whipped cream and a little bit of hot fudge. I'm not a big fan of hot fudge.
I figure this was only like...an entire day's worth of calories eaten in one sitting. See maybe why I have weight issues? Aaand maybe why I've gained so much weight the past year? Nahh, it's not the buffet's fault; I could scarf down an entire buffet before I gained the weight. My
So after dinner we strolled through the mall, and I was unconstitutionally DENIED my right to spend 30-40 minutes in each store! It was a travesty!
Ok...I'm just kidding.
I did get these purdy pictures...
I love sunsets.
Are there any types of food - spicy, sweet, dairy-y - that have a weird affect on your body? What one meal from any one restaurant (or homemade, I don't care) could you eat everday for the rest of your life?
Obviously some spicy foods 'go right through me'; and dairy has been giving me a slight stomach ache the past few weeks. But I do eat a lot of ice cream so don't pay attention to me!
Meal? Fo'geddaboudit! I've always said I could survive on bread and cheese if I had to, and I totally stand by that claim. As long as it isn't American/processed cheese, or blue or gorgonzola. Because that's just nasty!
Oh! I don't like Swiss, either. So no American/processed cheese, blue or gorgonzola cheese, or Swiss. Got that?
