So You Think You Can Dance?

As you know, I love to dance, and so I am extremely excited for tonight because I'm going to the So You Think You Can Dance tour show!! Went last year too...awesome! They basically just do a bunch of the most popular routines from the show, and a few new group ones...but still SO GOOD! I really hope Twitch and Kerrington do the John Mayer one with the bed...loved that one...

Speaking of dance, last night I missed the first half hour of class because of the stupid (yet awesome) Celtics!! My studio is RIGHT near the Garden (where the Celtics play) yeah NO parking. I then had to drive to a T stop, which took forever in rush hour annoying.

No pics of dinner because it consisted of some Pirates Booty in the car, and half of a PB&J in between class and rehearsal.

It was a cold windy morning and I had a hankering for some oatmeal! I added 1/2 cup of oats, 1/2 cup skim milk, 1/4 cup water, salt and vanilla to my bowl before leaving this morning.

When it was time to eat, I added half of a chopped banana to the bowl and microwaved for 2-3min, stirring occasionally when the mixture was about to boil over (happens so fast!!).

I was very excited for my toppings...I had half of a Kashi pumpkin flax granola bar crushed up, a drizzle of maple syrup (tiny drizzle), and a spoon of White Chocolate PB!!!Yum!! This was AWESOME! To tell you the truth I think this was my first oatmeal with banana AND PB experience, and it was heavenly. I may or may not have gone back for a tiny bit more PB towards the end of the bowl.

This kept me full til noon!! Then I hit another weakness...cold pizza :) Someone had some leftover BBQ chicken pizza, so I sniped a small piece, ate it cold, and it was amazing. This pushed my planned lunch back til about 2:30. I was in no mood to make a lunch this morning so I grabbed a freezer option...there are hardly any frozen meals I like but this stuff is incredible...
Trader Joe's (pardon me, Trader Giotto's) Eggplant parm...GRILLED eggplant parm. I love that it's delicious and cheesy and nicely portioned at 270 calories!

Along with my parm I had brought some frozen peas (which I tossed into my parm) and an amazing apple.
The apple was from our offices weekly fruit share from the local CSA, and I have no idea what kind it is!! Anyone?!? It's unlike any apple I've had...sweet but slightly tart and juicy! I can tell you what it's NOT... Macintosh, Macoun, red Delicious, honey crisp, Paula red, granny smith (obviously), now that those are out...anyone have an idea??
This was a very warm filling lunch, and will definitely hold me over til I get home...then it's off to SYTYCD show!!!
