I was trying to think about how to write this post tonight. I wanted to post, but I knew if I did today I’d have a hard time not mentioning this particular day. Today is 3 years since my dad passed away. I don’t want this to be a sad post…so lets make it happy :)
Don’t get me wrong, my mom is a fantastic cook and loves food…but I have to give my dad credit for my LOVE of food, maybe even an obsession for amazing tasting food!
He used to be a power lifter back in the day, and would tell me he used to eat about 10,000 calories a day to try to gain weight!? Ok I never inherited that problem haha. Even after he stopped the serious lifting, he was always active…and I can definitely say I got my love of fitness and health 100% from him, as well as my love of goodies :)
Yeah he was a man who LOVED his dessert. Homemade pies, cakes, cookies, ICE CREAM, chocolate…you name it! Even now, when I go into a bakery I find myself looking at some amazingly looking treat and thinking “oooo daddy would of loved that!”. And I love that I still have those thoughts even now. Man I wish I had some of my old photos scanned in!! There’s this great one of him and me at my 4th birthday holding a big pie in front of our faces with a huge grin on his face :) I gotta show you that one sometime…when I get to a scanner.
So I have to give my dad a big shout out and Thank you for passing on the passion and love of delicious things, AND teaching me how you can still enjoy delicious treats while maintaining your health :)
Ahhh I need to stop myself from going crazy with the wedding pics….BUT this just gave my the kick in the pants to FINALLY start sharing my big day with you!!! So expect to see more wedding pics in the near future :)
And now for some tots…yes, the potato kind.
Brian, 2 min ago: “did you blog about my tots yet?” haha boys. Yeah he slipped a bag of potato tots into the cart last weekend.
This was his dinner tonight: Tots, and an Amy’s burrito :)
Not gonna lie, I had a few. I had just returned from a SUPER SWEATY hot power yoga class, and I was huuuuungry.
My real dinner was a quick salad of: baby spinach, shredded carrots, cucumber, hummus, red wine vinegar and a little olive oil and hot sauce.
Unpictured, but I also had a half of a pita with American cheese melted in it.
its basically a tub of like all natural Fluff!! I found it at Whole Foods and already bought another container. (oh and just trying to find it online, I just found out it’s a Boston based company…COOL!)
Threw that into the micro for 10 seconds.
Tomorrow’s Friday….HOLLER! Anything fun planned for this weekend. I am heading down to Rhode Island right after work to visit a friend :)
