Today was long and tiring but I’m going to bed with a smile on my face because my eats were yummy and I had a fun playdate at the park with my kiddies.

Here’s a quick recap of my grub today:

I was going to my second CrossFit class in the morning so I wanted to make sure I had some fuel in my belly before I started. For breakfast, I fried up a spinach and feta chicken sausage and ate it with some carrot sticks, sliced bell pepper, and leftover broiled prosciutto-wrapped asparagus.

After my class, I traded places with my hubby who had accompanied my mother-in-law to her oncology appointment(s). We finally finished at 1:30 p.m. and I was hangry! (Coach Trish, that’s for you!) Because all the food at the hospital is disgusting and unhealthy, we wandered over to Tootsie’s where I ordered a Tootsie’s burger sans bun and asked for a side salad in place of the shoestring potatoes. 

Tootsie’s is a super cute and delicious Italian cafe located behind the Stanford Barn. When I come here, I order the spinach salad or I get one of the sandwiches without the bun. This place has tons of super-tempting baked goods and freshly fried zeppole so if you don’t think you can resist them, stay away. That way the lines will be shorter for me…

At home, I read books with Big O until Lil-O woke up from his nap. Since the weather was unseasonably warm and I was trapped in a doctor’s office all morning, I really wanted to play outside with the kids. We all walked to the park and horsed around in the sun until 5:00 p.m. When I returned home, I made some Asian cauliflower fried rice and nuked the remains of the overnight oven-braised pork roast.

Here’s my dinner plate:

I’m pooped from a whole week of full-time mommy duty. Good night.
