Once a year we go up to Pasadena for hamburgers and a haunted house. Sometimes we go with a group of friends and other times we go alone. This year, we went alone. We at dinner at Pie ‘N Burger, a place I have been going to since I was a child and it has not changed a bit. I had a hamburger with grilled onion and we shared my husbands favorite macaroni salad and a chocolate malt. They have really good pies but we were to full this trip. But the highlight of the night was our annual trip to the Pasadena Old Town Haunt. We had so much fun, it was scary but not too much. 🙂

Hi, Everyone!  Happy What I Ate Wednesday! Wednesday is now my favorite day of the week because of the WIAW. I love looking at all the posts for the week. In fact, the WIAW has grown so much I usually have to spread reading all the posts over a few days. 🙂 The new theme is “Fall into good habits”, which is about making a few goals for the fall into long-term good habits. I am doing well with the goals I make last week so I thought I would a add few more.

 Last Weeks Goals:

My three fall goals are: 1) Return to Sunday marketing and cooking for the week. 2) Continue with my workout plan, trying to improve each week. 3) Stay organized and ahead of the game with all school work.

This Weeks Goals:

My new fall goals are: 1) Eat two pieces of fruit each day. 2) Study at least 1 hour Monday thur Friday. 3) Track water intake.

Hope you enjoy my day, these are my eats from last Saturday. Thank you to Jenn a Peas and Crayons for hosting the WIAW!

This is what I ate:

Breakfast (6:30am)

I started the day at the Gypsy Den, with my new favorite drink a cafe francais. To eat I had a spinach scramble with fresh fruit and my husband and I shared the bread platter that comes with greek yogurt, homemade jam, honeycomb, homemade almond butter and banana. I can not eat here without ordering the bread, they bake their own bread. 🙂

Am Snack (11:00am)

A very sweet white peach.

Lunch (1:00pm)

Cashews and a Pink Lady apple.

Dinner (5:00 pm)

At BCD Tofu House, I had mild mushroom soon tofu soup. The soup is accompanied by many condiments and I honestly don’t know what most of them are. There is always a egg, potatoes, white rice, kimchi, peppers and other assorted condiments. . I like the potatoes and rice but I skip most of the others because they are too spicy for me. I really like the soup, it took me a couple of tries before I found a dish I really liked but now I am hooked.

Dessert (9:00pm)

A real treat, I can’t tell you the last time I had 31 Flavors. I love chocolate ice cream, so I ordered a single scoop of World Class Chocolate. YUM!

Thank you for stopping by. I hope your day was full of healthy meals!
