This past weekend was a low-key one. We didn’t run around the city like we did the last two, which left us more exhausted than weekdays. It allowed me to do I whatever my body feels like and it was a great reunion with it. 🙂
Saturday: we had plan for a BBQ with Star’s coworkers, but I was feeling weak and sleepy so I stayed home. I slept and slept, almost all day long. When Star came home… I woke up 🙂 And then, I ate and I ate until I fall into sleep again, for 11 hrs :shock:! Wooooo….. some serious sleep catch up happened again! I blame the carb-loading at night! (1/2 loaf of the new bread).
Sunday: not surprisingly I woke up bloated. Carbs? I love you for making me sleep better and I hate you to bloat me so much! I skipped the breakfast, went to do mani/pedi!
and then we met with Sarah and Bami at Kramerbooks for brunch.
complementary muffins and biscuits
Star tried THE BARACK OBAMLET made with 3-egg omelet filled w/our Obama Family Chili topped w/cheddar cheese served w/sour cream, diced red pepper & scallions, Café potatoes & fresh fruit
Sarah BANANA FRENCH TOAST pan-fried Italian bread soaked in egg batter stuffed w/sliced banana w/scrambled eggs & hickory bacon warmed walnut syrup; fruit compote and TURKEY SAUSAGE LINK
Bami had CAFÉ STEAK & EGGS French cut hanger steak, seared & sliced – served rare finished w/mushroom marmalade served w/two eggs; potatoes; fruit
and I had CAFÉ FRITTATA fresh broccoli, sweet peppers, scallions, mushrooms & fresh basil; topped w/freshly grated parmesan in a pan omelet w/three eggs; Café potatoes & fruit.
I didn’t care much about the food because I was having so much fun chatting with Sarah and Bami. They’re our favorite couple friend here in DC. They’re so fun to be with. 😆 Bami and Star are so much alike, Sarah and I enjoy teasing them so much!!!
Sarah and I became great friends after our Tanzania trip. We worked one building away, there’s even underground tunnel that connect the two buildings. Whenever any of us feels like a coffee and some chat, we’d txt each other and meet in <5 min! 😀
After we said bye to them, we went to do groceries and Staples. I have a fun project to do today! 🙂
For dinner, I prepared 3 dishes
pork sauteed with cauliflower in a spicy sauce
sauteed chinese greens with green chili
and my favorite soup made with winter melon, tomatoes and bamboo. I love it soooo much!!!
Q: What are you up for today? Star has to work and I have a free day. I plan to do the mini project, gym, reading and maybe a visit to H&M. we’ll see. 🙂
