Last night was super fun! Sam and I headed into the city (Chicago) to have an early dinner and go to the Bulls game! Sam’s office has season tickets, so we’ll probably be going to a lot of games over the next few months (or however long the season lasts).
Of course we had snacks for the car. It’s only about a 30 minute drive—but we had an early lunch. And we just like food.
We ate dinner at Grand Lux Café—which is an old favorite of ours! The food, service, and atmosphere are all great!
My dining companion:
We started with the homemade hummus and flatbread. To die for!
We shared a mint mojito and a Hawaiian smoothie.
Mr. New Healthy and I clearly love the thumbs up. So does New Healthy, Jr.
Crusty wheat bread, no words necessary.
For my meal, I rolled with the:
A Chopped Salad with Romaine Lettuce, Asparagus, Tomato, White Beans, Fresh Beets, Red Onion, Peas, Lentils and Assorted Vegetables all Tossed in Our House Vinaigrette.
Instead of dressing, I used the leftover hummus to top my salad. It was perfect.
I was pretty excited when I saw a Trader Joe’s almost directly across from Grand Lux. Yay! We had a 30 minute wait for our table, so I ran over there in the 15 degree weather to grab a few goodies. But, it was closed! Boo! I need to head back into the city for some grocery shopping. <—haha I’m a loser.
We were both stuffed from dinner, so we got dessert to-go—a humongous piece of carrot cake. We ate it in the car on the way home—and it was delish!
Hey there, nosebleed section!
I started this morning off with a toasted Arnold thin topped with almond butter & a sliced banana. An iced coffee satisfied my caffeine addiction.
I want to leave you with the crazy cute music video that Adam and my little sister made while we were at the game last night.
It’s so cute that I was able to ignore the whole “get drunk on diet mountain dew + f-word thing.” You have to choose your battles.
Note: you may have to click on the video to watch. (it will take you to YouTube)
Courtney’s pretty awesome at editing, no?
Have a great day loves!
