Recent Meals + Yummy Chocolate Covered Strawberries


It’s Wednesday already! I love three-day weekends! Although it’s technically a holiday week here in New York.

Schools in New York close all week, not just for President’s Day. I don’t really notice as much anymore though since my son is a senior in high school. He doesn’t need me for his plans and doesn’t need me to take him anywhere since he can take himself.

Should we discuss that I stopped working on this post because I got caught up with college decisions this week? No, let’s not talk about it. I’m tired of talking about it. Big decisions taking place though! I feel like I was just a kid deciding on a college. Not sure where the time goes.

Instead, let’s jump right into the food I did manage to put together for this post.

My son wanted baked ziti the other night so I used it as our opportunity to take out from Mother Kelly’s. Sure, we could have made baked ziti at home but I wasn’t in the mood for the mess OR the extra ingredients my son would have bought while buying more cheese. That’s the thing right now — he can go grocery shopping without me now that he drives. So, if I send him to the store for one or two things, he comes home with five bags of groceries. No, I am not exaggerating. I usually need to tell him not to be a marketer’s dream by purchasing what’s at the register and to skip items that are strategically placed in center displays. 

I had the grilled eggplant over spaghetti squash (all covered in mozzarella cheese) which I haven’t had in a really long time. It was so good but my stomach doesn’t love spaghetti squash.

I can eat every vegetable pretty much with ease except for spaghetti squash. Not sure why.

I ate this salad from Chopt in the car while talking on the phone with Heather.

I’m not sure what was in my salad because I just get the same salad on repeat that’s in the Chopt app from the last time I ordered. The Chopt app makes things so convenient. I ordered my salad using the app while waiting in line to pay for groceries at Whole Foods. Very convenient.


I always say this about whole wheat vegetable pizza but I’ll say it again. Vegetable pizza, especially the whole wheat variety, is my idea of a perfectly healthy and balanced meal.

Look at those vegetables! Monte really packs the vegetables on the slice like no other pizza place around.

I also always say that chocolate-covered strawberries are a perfectly balanced snack. I’ve been enjoying these yummy chocolate-covered strawberries all week.

And that’s all I’ve got for today. I think I may be able to run outdoors this morning and actually, I should force myself to do so as long as the ice is minimal because we are getting more snow tomorrow and Friday. Lovely. Who else has had enough of the snow at this point?! I just heard on the news that 76% of the country has snow on the ground.

I miss sweating during my summer runs.
