This afternoon we packed up again and got on the road! For those of you who do not know my husband Lew is running his first marathon on Saturday! I am very excited and very nervous all at the same time. I know he can do it and will do a great job and am very excited about keeping everyone up to date on Saturday. (You can follow me on twitter at @ashandlewplus2 and follow Lew at @lewkizer).
In preparation for Saturday he is at the Falcons football game tonight with his friend Joe who had an extra ticket and is also running the marathon on Saturday. Tomorrow night we are having a cookout at my Aunt’s house and Saturday we are having an early Thanksgiving dinner at my grandmothers. I am very excited! This weekend starts the trend of a very busy two months to end our year. We have something planned every weekend until the new year! I know you are excited about following along
But first we must cover the rest of today…
Lunch today was on the road. We stopped at Hardee’s and I was very surprised that they had added a salad to their menu. The salad on the menu was served with fried chicken but they kindly substituted my chicken for grilled.
Lettuce topped with an apple, dried cranberries, feta, walnuts and grilled chicken. The salad came with a raspberry vinaigrette dressing which I chose not to eat because the second ingredient was high fructose corn syrup which I am trying to eliminate from my diet. This salad was pretty good and I think it made a very healthy on the road choice.
I also had a handful of Lew’s fries
By the time we made it I was starving (or at least I thought I was) and had to dig in my mom’s fridge and eat a few snacks. I had a mini sandwich and a half of a brownie It’s so good to be home
For dinner we went to Chili’s which is where I always want to go when I am home. We started off with the roasted corn guacamole with chips and salsa. I am in love with this guacamole and think I must recreate it.
For my entree I had my favorite, the quesadilla explosion salad.
I really enjoyed my salad! It makes me think of home
I do not eat a lot of meat but Lew loves these!! They have a pretty short ingredient list considering they are packaged meats and contain no MSG! I have a feeling we will be ordering more of these in the near future.
Have a happy Thursday night!
