Guess where I went last night?
That’s right, the Nationals Park! Wil got free tickets from a vendor at work, so we got some pretty good seats in the “Stars and Stripes Club.” It sounded pretty glorious but all it involved was walking up many many ramps and then having similar seats to the other areas of the stadium. Wil didn’t think I looked supportive enough of our team, so he bought me a Nats hat.
And then we went in! We only stayed for a few innings because we were losing 8-1 and it was the 4th inning, so we ended up going in search of some food. I was nervous about finding healthy options at the ballpark because most of the stands have hotdogs, hamburgers, sausages, funnelcakes, pizza, ice cream, candy, etc. I did find a place that had a Grilled Veggie Sandwich, and it came with portabello mushrooms, zucchini, onions, lettuce and tomato. It also had “goat cheese” but it looked and tasted a lot like ranch to me…
I only ate half the bun and all the veggies, so it wasn’t so bad. The sandwich itself tasted good, but I still feel a little skeptical of that “goat cheese.” I also got a ceasar salad with no dressing at a little restaurant in the park, which was surprisngly delicious. The romaine was crisp and there was the perfect amount of cheese and just a few croutons.
On our way out of the stadium, I spotted the racing presidents, which are the National’s mascots who do a race e every game. I forget who won the race last night, but I still wanted to get a picture with them!
Abe Lincoln, Wil, Thomas Jefferson, Me, and Teddy Roosevelt. Exciting stuff.
This morning was an special day… CSA day! Here’s the goods from this week:
- 5 eggplants
- 2 mystery herbs
- 2 boxes of baby tomatoes
- 1 regular tomato
- 2 yellow scallop squash
- 1 cucumber
This week my friend who I split the share with is on vacation, so I get to keep the whole thing! I am especially excited about the eggplant, scallop squash, and baby tomatoes! I’ve never had yellow scallop squash before so it’s going to be fun to come up with something to do with it!
Breakfast today was a simple bowl of (as Caitlin puts it) unovernight oats.
In the mix:
- 1/3 cup rolled oats (1.5 pts)
- 1/2 scoop protein powder (1 pt)
- 1 tsp chia seeds (.5 pts)
- 1/2 cup light soy milk (.5 pts)
- 2 tbsp HempPlus Granola (.5 pts)
Simple, quick and delish. Yum.
