After a 6 MILE RUN and weight training.…I was a hungry beast.
The only thing that could satisfy my screaming belly was a salad the size of my niece. It was a winning idea to go to Fudruckers (with my awesomest bro and sister-in-law Danny and Shelly) for my collosal salad and B could get a burger.
That was until they brought out a salad with ICEBERG LETTUCE!!! WHO DOES THAT.
I showed Fudruckers and went to their condiments section and loaded my plate with romaine, pico, tomatoes onions and pickles. MUHAHAHA. No one will get a way with selling me $9 of water lettuce.
I promise, he really does love me constantly taking pictures of him when back in the good ol’ days he could eat his burger peacefully without me saying, “okay, now take a big bite of your burger and at the same time hold up a fry with creepy eyes while giving my blog friends a big smile to show them how much you love them.”
Before we knew it, it was time for more food. Of course I had to go to Yogurtland one more time before we left. It wouldn’t be right to leave without a kiss goodbye. I met my beautiful Hawaiian Makena (bff’s since forever) and her two daughters and family (practically my family too).
I got my usual, 5 different flavors with at least a scoopful of each topping. Mix it all together and love every bite.
Smart girl, this one is……she licked that bowl clean.
Goodbye MAKENA (she leaves next month) until I come visit you in Hawaii (I guess I should ask Billy about this first before putting it on the blog, oh well).
Gotta love photos where you realize that when you smile your cheeks push your lower eye lid up so that you are completely squinting. PS Makena is training for the MAUI MARATHON this Fall….I really do need to go be her number one fan right?!?!
After a trip to Runners Corner (I’ll show you the goods later) we went and did laundry and hung out with my parents and celebrated an early father’s day with the WORLD’S GREATEST DAD!!! Yep, he is honestly the coolest/funniest/smartest/KINDEST/happiest Dad in the whole wide world…LOVE YOU DADIO!!!
Billy bbqed some steaks.
and I managed to fit in another insane amount of produce.
After dinner we were flipping through my mom’s Food Network magazine and this rice pudding caught our eye. One quick trip to the grocery store and we were ready to make some rice pudding on top of blackberries. This was my first time EATING rice pudding ever and it was AMAZING. Seriously, try it now.
Bring 2 cups rice, 1 2/3 cups milk, 1/2 tsp vanilla and a pinch of salt to a simmer in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until creamy, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in 3/4 cups white chocolate chips and let sit a few minutes. Serve over WHATEVER FRUIT YOU WANT!!
As if I didn’t overload you with pictures, there are more on the DIDN’T CUT IT PAGE!!!
We are on the road to California!!! Have you ever been there? What is your favorite thing to do in CA!?!?!
What do you put on your baked potato?
-Yes, it sounds nasty but KETCHUP and sometimes bbq sauce!!
How do you entertain yourself on a road trip?
-I am going to finally reply to emails…..sorry it took me forever!!! I will also be munching on the cooler of food I packed, reading, watching Friends and telling BIlly all of my best jokes.
