Last week I had a beautiful, glorious entire day off! A miracle right! I didn't work, I didn't go to school, I didn't clean anything...it was awesome!
Can I have this mom?
Now I can't say for sure what mischief Minnie got into while I was gone...but here's a little What I Ate Wednesday "off day" version for ya!
The morning started off pretty usual. 1 cup of Kashi Go Lean with almond milk. Then I took off for a long run and fueled up after with a banana and protein shake made with water.
Now here's where it gets a little interesting!
My mom, our friend Leslie, and I headed out to see an 1145am showing of The Help. It's at a place called the "Cinema 'n Draft" house. Basically you can eat, drink, order food all while watching the movie. And our movie was only $1!

We snuck a few snacks in as us frugal women do! I enjoyed wheat thins, apple, pear, and a dark chocolate orange bar.
We also felt a mid-day celebration was in order so my mom ordered a bottle of the joint's finest white zinfandel! :) It was after 12...I think! :)
You stay classy Virginia.
We enjoyed the wine, some jalapeno poppers, and a pretty good movie. I read the book and I felt like it stayed pretty true to the original story. I didn't like the ending in the book, so I still didn't like it in the movie. I wanted something more uplifting!
After the movie we did a little shopping and then went home to relax and cook up dinner.
I enjoy home-cooked meals when I'm visiting mom. I know they'll be healthy and full of veggies!
She made lemon pepper chicken and I roasted up some butternut squash. She also made a fresh waldorf salad and brussel sprouts. See - I told you lots of veggies!
My mom is like Sandra-Lee...she excels at semi-homemade cooking that doesn't take forever and she has beautiful table settings! Isn't it pretty?
What a great day off! Can I get another one of those soon? Survey says....NO!
