Weekend Recovery

by Lauren on April 1, 2012

Despite having a total let down this weekend by finding out I was unable to go to DC for the Cherry Blossom Race, it didn't turn out half as bad as I thought it would. 

I was able to actually sleep in.  I'm not sure why, but this week I've been abnormally tired.  I took this opportunity to sleep in as long as I could on both days and I couldn't have been happier with that decision. 

I woke up Saturday morning without a care.  I had no where to be, no workouts to complete, no appointments to get to.  It was bliss.  

I was also paid a visit by this handsome little fella. 

Oh it's been FAR too long since I've had my fix of this love.  I swear he changes so much every time I see him. 

This is by far my favorite picture I took this weekend.  Please ignore the disgust from the bottom of my slipper.  The poor child needs a bath after touching that thing. 

Despite being cooped up in rainy weather, I managed to embrace the new month by welcoming spring with a new batch of flowers.  

I also found myself with a few huge cravings.  One being frozen yogurt and the other being cookie dough.  We had no fro-yo or cookie dough but I became desperate and found a recipe that only required 3 ingredients and could be made in the matter of moments. 

Saturday night, I was ready to get out of the house and persuaded Toly to take me to dinner and a movie.  We went to one of our favorite spots for dinner, Mount Hill Tavern.  The food is always good and we always seem to enjoy ourselves there. 

I had their special which was an Arctic Char over Swiss Chard and Squash with a Lemon Garlic Sauce. 

The fish was incredible.  I think this may have been my first experience with Arctic Char and I was beyond impressed.  It's similar to a salmon but with more of a trout flavor.  The sauce I could have done without.  A bit too oily for me. 

We then saw The Hunger Games, finally!  The movie has been out only a week but I feel like I am one of the last people to see it.  It was good but I expected it to be good so no disappointment there. 

Today was spent catching up on cleaning.  I was away last weekend and even though my husband does a very careful job at not letting the house go to hell, I still feel like it gets so dirty if I skip a week of real cleaning.  

Dinner was kept nice and easy tonight. 

Amy's Frozen No Cheese Veggie Pizza improvised.  I added grilled peppers, eggplant and zucchini and took the liberty of adding my own preferred goat cheese.  

I love this pizza so much.  Really, there is no other frozen pizza that compares for me. 

And that is about the extent of my weekend.  So not as bad as I thought but if I've learned anything, it's that I am not good at doing nothing.  The idea always sounds so inviting but when it comes down to it, I need chaos in order to feel complete. 

Did you get April Fooled today?
