Can you believe it’s Friday? Honestly, this week has absolutely flown by for me. Both yesterday and today, I kept thinking it was the day before. Alas, I will certainly settle for a Friday.
Last night, Matty and I went on a date to Rasoi, our favorite Indian restaurant located in Pawtucket, RI. I got out of work at the clinic around 7:00 p.m. so it was a very late dinner and we were both arrived ready to enjoy Rasoi’s delicacies. We started with pappadum and dippers!
It’s safe to say that Matty and I wouldn’t argue if these crispy, lentil-chickpea crackers became a pre-meal staple at most American restaurants. Who needs bread when you’ve got papadum?
When our meals arrived, we were ready to eat!
Clearly, one of us was more impatient than the other. When it comes to Indian food, Matty is the equivalent of a kid in a candy store! He rolled with his usual, Chicken Tikka Lababdar and I ordered a tofu salad with lime cilantro vinaigrette on the side.
I cleared my plate and Matty strategically ate half of his so that he could enjoy the other half for today’s lunch. The evening ended with lots of much-needed cuddling.
Resting It Up
This morning, I took a rest day and completed the Long & Lean stretching routine from the Tone It Up Beach Babe DVD. It was what I needed to wake my body up. The routine is just shy of 10 minutes, and I really like to do it on my day off from working out to make sure my muscles aren’t getting tense and tight. After the great stretch session, I enjoyed breakfast and an episode of What Not to Wear while getting ready for work. Multi-tasking at its finest, really.
I got out of work around 1:00 p.m. and headed to Matty’s for a late lunch. We munched while watching the U.S. women’s gold medal-winning game. How amazing was that match?! Matty and I are both already mourning the death of this year’s Olympics. It’s been such a great year! I’ve really enjoyed watching volleyball, soccer, and swimming the most. Anyways, back to lunch. It looks wonky but tasted wonderful.
On the left is local tofu salad tossed with raw spinach. On the right is sauteed broccoli with garlic, curry powder, garam masala, and lots of nutritional yeast. FYI: It is a winning combination.
