Another Birthday…Another Steakhouse

I started out the day trying very hard to be on track with my eating.  I made what is fast becoming one of my favorite breakfasts…

The mix:

Chobani Plain Greek Yogurt

A Fuji Apple

Cranberry Honey (that I bought at the Library!)

Pumpkin Pie Spice

It’s very tasty and extremely filling.  I can’t believe I’m still working on the apples from 2 weeks ago and they’re still good!  Going to the produce place just makes sense. 

I was happy that the individual Chobani Greek Yogurt containers were on sale earlier in the week.  They had flavors that I hadn’t seen before, lemon and peach, two of my favorite.  I can’t wait to try them, but first I have to finish the big tub of it that’s in the fridge.  I’m actually researching getting a yogurt machine  I had one years ago and it worked well.  I’m not sure what ever happened to it.  I’ve also found that you can get the starter to make Greek yogurt, so that makes me happy.  That will be an adventure!

At 2pm we were scheduled to meet our son, Bill and grandsons Alex and Patrick to celebrate Alex’s birthday.  We were meeting them at the Texas Roadhouse…as I said…Another Birthday, Another Steakhouse.  I don’t complain, I can usually find something.  Funny thing is, I was a little shy about taking food photos in front of them.  The universe worked in my favor.  I had just taken out my camera to take photos of US, when the waitress came with our food.   So here’s how it worked.

Ralph and Alex…such handsome guys…Alex doesn’t like to smile and Ralph looks a little bit possessed!

With the camera still in my hand and waiting for each of us to be served…


Patrick, Bill (both also very handsome!) and Me…Hey, I just realized there’s another shot of my salad! 😉

I ordered an entrée size house salad, romaine, tomatoes, cheddar cheese, hard-boiled eggs and croutons with Ranch dressing on the side.  It was very good.  I ordered a baked sweet potato also.  I must say that there are few foods uglier than a baked sweet potato (I’m just sayin’) but boy was it good! 

It was a very pleasant dinner and we all enjoyed ourselves.

We got home in time to watch the Super Bowl.  Ralph was rooting for the Steelers, I was for Green Bay.  Just thought of the strangeness of that, considering where their name comes from…but we’ll ignore that for the moment.  I have other reasons to root for them. 

Unfortunately on the way home, Ralph stopped a the corner store and came out with Doritos.  I have no contol…the only good thing I can say is that I don’t have to worry about them being in the house anymore.  Ugh!  I haven’t even mentioned my Valentine gift yet.  I really think I need a safe to which I DON’T know the combination!  Lock this stuff away and I’d be ok! 

My plan for the day…be in control and DO THE RIGHT THING!  Sadly, we saw how that worked out for me yesterday.  Ah, well, I have a positive outlook for today! 🙂

  1. I’ve never bought Chobani before but got some the other day. I had the pomegranate and added a TBSP of chocolate chips and a TBSP of granola. OMG.

  2. First of all, I love the pictures. The one of Ralph and Alex is so cute! I think I need copies of these since I don’t have pictures of two of my favorite boys…OK Ralph and Bill are cute ,too!

    I found a recipe for yogurt cheese. I’m going to get some plain yogurt this week and try it. Sadly, Aldi’s doesn’t have plain yogurt in their Fit and Active brand : (.
    I wan’t much of a yogurt eater (I only liked it in the yogurt pie) but now I am addicted to the peach, blueberry and strawberry. Week before last they had apple turnover which actually had apple chunks in it and a Boston cream pie one which was also good. I doubt that I would buy them again but it never hurts to try something new.

  3. Yay us for cheering on Wisconsin!!! :-p

    Your breakfast. looks. incredible. Oh, my. I haven’t done it in a while, but I was crazy for vanilla greek yogurt with a microwaved cinnamon apple. It gets all soft and like pie, and only takes like a minute! Instant swoon.

    Ooooo, I still have greek yogurts in the fridge! Maybe I’ll make your breakfast tomorrow.
