Pancakes, birthday cake and… broccoli?

October 8, 2009

Good afternoon guys! I’m updating a little later than usual but sometimes real life gets in the way. πŸ˜‰

Yesterday I told you I was going to make some pancakes and that’s exactly what I did.

… And then I forgot to take pictures when they were done. πŸ˜› Silly, I know. But believe me when I say that they were sooo good. I had 3 (throughout the afternoon) and promised myself that I wouldn’t eat more. And I didn’t. It was nice seeing other people enjoying them though!

I also ate an apple at about 5pm so I wouldn’t be hungry before dinner time.

Dinner was something my mom made. She just made it up so it doesn’t really have a name. It had cod, spinach, potatoes, onion, etc. Oh and cheese on top.

It was REALLY good. I didn’t eat the cheese on top but I didn’t need it. I also didn’t eat too much because I felt that I was indulging too much. It was a little overwhelming, but honestly, I gotta remember that one thing here and there isn’t gonna make me gain weight again. So I didn’t stress for long.

And next my friends… The cake.
I honestly have no idea what’s in this cake, we bought it and it’s a special recipe of that restaurant. But dear god it was good. IT WAS STILL WARM.

I just know there was apple and caramel involved.

We sang happy birthday. πŸ™‚

And I had a piece. I had to. And it was totally worth it.

The roses my dad gave my mom. πŸ™‚

That was it yesterday. I was way too tired. Just read some blogs and went to bed!
Today I woke up at 6:45am, had the same ol’ breakfast (weetabix+yogurt+banana), got ready and went to the gym.

Filipa went with me. We walked 15 minutes on the treadmill, strength trained for an hour, I DID 10 MINUTES ON THE ELLIPTICAL (ahahah) and then stretched for a bit. It was a good morning at the gym I must say. I’m still sore from the session I had with the PT but it actually feels good, even if I’m aching all over.

Yep, we’re silly.

The gym has little lounge areas. We rested/talked a bit before heading home πŸ˜›

This is the train station where we always catch the train.

Got home at around noon. I wasn’t hungry at all but I should’ve eaten something because after about an hour I was starving.

My mom had made Caldo Verde so I had a plate of that. She uses her own (healthier) recipe though. No potatoes or chouriΓ§o for example. πŸ™‚ It’s just as tasty, honestly.

And then we made this:

Onion, broccoli, seitan, etc. It was really good actually! πŸ™‚

That’s it for now. I have to work a bit! πŸ™‚
Cya later.

    The dish your mom made seems sort of like a frittata. It looks really good.

    PS. A good piece of birthday cake, especially with someone you love, is always worth it!

      It was pretty yummy. It wasn’t exactly a frittata (I had to google that :P), she put it in the oven to cook. I don’t know, I’m such a terrible cook ahah

      Yeah, I agree. These are the kind of days I don’t wanna be too picky with my food. It’s just one day so.. who cares? πŸ™‚

    you’ve got SUCH amazing pictures…you even have a really attractive picture of a train station! And the stuff your mom makes looks AWESOME! I would have been the opposite…I would have picked out the cheese first! πŸ˜€

      Thank you! πŸ™‚ Ahaha The train station is beautiful, it has nothing to do with my picture! πŸ˜‰

      Old me would definitely have done that but new me knew I wasn’t even that hungry. πŸ˜‰

      That gym is so fancy. A little intimidating at first but now… not so much. πŸ˜›
