Dinner with the girls

I was out late last night, so I am catching up on Wednesday’s post.

I felt a lot better on Wednesday. I am so happy that illness passed. I had so much more energy at work, luckily, since we were cleaning again and I pretty much got my workout in by walking a lot and lifting boxes.

Breakfast was Kashi Autumn Wheat and coffee.

Morning snack was coffee, raw almonds and Newman’s Own Organics Berry Blend.

Lunch was the rest of my Subway sandwich, a berry applesauce, Stonyfield honey oikos yogurt (really not loving this flavor now) and two clementines. I am still eating more calories to make up for Monday.

After work, I had dinner at the Wicked Hop restaurant in Milwaukee’s Third Ward with my friends. We finally celebrated Christmas together by eating out.

Our friend Jenny arrived last and had wonderful news! She got engaged on Christmas eve! She has been dating her now fiance Tim for about 10 years plus. We were all so happy for her that we squealed with excitement, were ooing and aawing over her ring and loved hearing about how the proposal happened.

My dinner was a Tequila Chicken Wrap with fruit on the side. I also enjoyed a Strongbow. I am definitely a cider or wine girl vs. beer.

We had to celebrate Jenny’s engagement with some dessert! It was delicious Red Velvet Cake that the Wicked Hop gets from the C. Adams bakery at the Milwaukee Public Market.

What a fun evening spent with the girls! Congrats to Jenny and Tim on their big news!

  1. A few things

    1) I love the Starbucks cup!!
    2) Your friend is a very patient girl–congrats to her!
    3) What restaurant did you go to? I am hoping you tell me some kind of chain restaurant b/c I want all of that!

    • Hi simplyshaka! 1) I love it too–it’s the Jonathan Adler product red cup. 2) Yes, she is! That is why we were so elated for her big news. ;) 3) It actually was a local restaurant called The Wicked Hop. If you are ever in Milwaukee, you can make a trip there and enjoy that yummy meal. It actually would be pretty easy to recreate at home–the chicken wasn’t fried, there was shredded cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, etc. inside. The fruit on the side really hit the spot too.
