We slept in this morning. Well, to 8:00am, which is late for us. Once we were up and about, I made “pointified eggs benny”. (one english muffin, two poached eggs, a slice of ham and “mock” hollandaise sauce made with light mayo, fat-free sour cream, dijon mustard and lemon juice – I sprinkled dried spinach on top for the photo)
We also had almond milk lattes.
I went to visit Helen for a while then, Dennis and I went and had “date day” at the movies.
Before we left, we had leftover eggplant dip and hummus with crunchmaster crackers so we didn’t go crazy on buttered movie popcorn.
At the movie we split a “kids combo” ; a mini popcorn, a mini drink (iced tea) and a kinder chocolate egg (that contained a panda toy). Portion control at its finest.
I also had one of the “new to Canada” Skinny Cow cluster packages.
Chinese New Year decorations were being put up everywhere. It’ll be the year of the Snake.
As for the movie? Well…regular readers know I have a bit of a “tongue in cheek” crush on Anderson Cooper. Seems I’m now gonna have to make a little room on my imaginary boyfriend couch for another Cooper. We saw Silver Linings Playbook with Bradley Cooper. What a sweet movie. Best Picture Academy Award material? Hmm…not sure. But at the risk of sounding like a dirty cougar….Bradley Cooper should win for best stubble. Just sayin’….
Dinner was chicken cutlets baked in blue menu plum sauce, bbq sauce and some soy. We used up the leftover brown rice from the other night, steamed some zucchini and I sautéed some beet greens in a little olive oil, garlic and lemon.
That’s it for the weekend. I know I sound like a broken record because every Sunday I say “I can’t believe the weekend is over”, BUT…..I can’t believe the weekend is over. Did anyone else see any movies this weekend? Dennis and I are hoping to see a few more of the Best Picture nominees before the Academy Awards next month. Any recommendations?
