The Stakeout

January 16, 2011

Sooo, I know I said I’d be back with details about my Dad’s birthday dinner but I was actually really disappointed in my meal and I’d like to forget it as quickly as possible so let’s skip to Saturday’s eats, shall we?

Friday night was full of trivia and this…

Yes, beer pong on a flat screen TV.  Don’t worry, it was completely broken and we were planning on throwing it away anyways.

Needless to say, it was a late night and the next morning I was needing some caffeine and somewhere quiet to read so as not to wake the sleeping beauties back at my apartment.

Starbucks it was!

I packed my own oatmeal and sat somewhere out of employee view.  Joey informed me that that was weird.

Whatever, that Starbucks “Perfect Oatmeal” isn’t so perfect.

Starbucks is literally a three minute walk from my apartment but my oatmeal still managed to get messy on the walk over.

It was so nice to eat, sip and read some hip hop history 🙂  It helped that the first chapter was all about baseball.  Yes, baseball and hip hop are connected somehow.  Don’t ask me to explain though.

I was staked out for a few hours then headed back home and enjoyed some R & R by watching Inception in bed.  Only made it through ~30 minutes but I’m already extremely confused.

At 2 I dragged myself out of bed long enough to make lunch.

Salad container = great way to toss a salad.

Yes, that would be an entire head of broccoli and I ate every.damn.bite.

Put the lid on.

Shake, shake, shake.

Ahh, perfectly coated salad.  <— This is key!

Field Roast Grain sausage & ketchup on the side.  Note to self: do not microwave sausage unless you enjoy eating shriveled food.

This meal held me over until we ate dinner around 8:30 PM!!  I was completely shocked.

It was a late dinner because Joey and I babysat my little nephew so my brother and sister-in-law could go out to dinner (we got them a gift card to Outback Steakhouse + free babysitting for Christmas).  That little guy is so cute and I mean my nephew, not Joey.  Although the two of them are absolutely adorable together.


We hit up Proto’s on the way home for some pizzaaaaa!

2 pies split 2 ways.  The Ruby Pie with pesto, mozzarella, feta, kalamata olives and artichoke hearts and the Tomato Pie with sauce, tomatoes and oregano.

They were both awesome but I was really feeling the Ruby Pie.  Yummmm.

Joey is already out like a light so I might do a little more reading.  We are a riot, I tell you.

Happy Sunday!

    Inception is a really good movie – you have to stick with it!!! 30 minutes does not do it justice, I’m telling you!

    Those pizzas look really good – next weeks I’m putting pesto on a pizza. That’s just genius.

    You need to give Inception a chance. It’s an AMAZING movie…just keep watching and I promise it’ll start to make some sense soon! 🙂

    Is it weird that I kinda like the Perfect Oatmeal? If I lived 3 minutes (walk) from Sbux, I’d be there every-single-day 😉

      It’s certainly good in a pinch, but I guess I’m just partial to my own cooking. Oh and having peanut butter on my oatmeal 😛
