I meant to post this yesterday- but things were crazy all day and once I settled in for the night, I didn't want to deal with posting from the iPad. So, better late than never, right?!
Due to the GORGEOUS weather we had this weekend on Long Island, I was able to spend most of the day outdoors. I took the kids for a long walk Friday evening and played in the park. Saturday we went to 3 more parks (we sure love parks!) and Sunday we went for a walk with the dog and flew a kite. It was a great weekend.
Due to our lack of food in the house, most of our meals were eaten out.
Friday was McDonald's, Saturday was Outback and Sunday was Subway and leftovers from Outback.
I have to say that my choices for WHERE to eat weren't the best (except for Subway), but WHAT I chose to eat was even worse. McDonald's wasn't too bad. Small fries (I can easily finish off a large and still pick on my daughter's leftovers) and a chicken sandwich- hold the mayo- off the dollar menu. Outback was a disaster. I had barely eaten a thing all day, we had to wait after being told we could be seated right away and the kids were taking turns screaming (they are usually very well behaved, I swear!). We were given free appetizers and I had no trouble diving into a bloomin onion and wings. Then I ordered a salad. Probably the worst thing on the menu- with fried chicken, eggs, bacon, cheese and honey mustard dressing. Ugh- my stomach hated me that night.
Sunday's lunch at Subway wasn't too bad. Subway is my new go-to place for a fast healthy-ish lunch. A 6" ham on wheat with mustard, lettuce, tomato, jalapenos and banana peppers comes in at 7points+. Add a bag of Lays for a 10 point + lunch.
Now that I finally have some cash in the bank- I'm going food shopping for some healthy staples and ingredients so I can make meals at home. I'll be checking in with some recipes this week!
Thanks for reading!
