Special Food Request?

Posted on

Last night, I went to bed a little later than planned so that I could pack for my weekend away with mom.  Mom has been planning a little mini vacation to her home town of Grand Haven, MI for us and we are leaving bright and early in the morning, so right after work I am heading up to Fort Wayne. I can’t wait for some mother daughter quality time!

Workout

This morning, my workout was a thirty minute total body weights routine, much like the one that I  completed on Monday.  Usually, I try to head to the gym for my Friday morning workouts, but since I am heading out of town after work I wanted to spend a little extra time at the house double checking everything to make sure that I wasn’t forgetting to pack anything.

Breakfast

Breakfast was something I have been missing dearly with my early morning workout classes and baked oatmeal breakfasts eaten in the car….

a SMOOTHIE!  Today’s mix was creamy and delicious and everything that I have been missing.

Blackberry Peanut Butter Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup frozen blackberries
  • 1/3 frozen banana
  • 1 handful of spinach
  • 2 tsp peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 packet of stevia
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Directions:
Combine all ingredients in the blender and add in about 3-5 ice cubes and a splash of water to get things moving.  Enjoy!!!

How Picky Are You?

So, this morning on the news one of the stories was about a man who ordered a sandwich from a restaurant and was unhappy with the way it was made, because the restaurant would not fix it or give him his money back…HE CALLED THE POLICE!!!!

I can’t believe that he called the police over that sort of situation, but when I started thinking about it…when people make my food differently than requested I get pretty frustrated.

When I go to restaurants, I typically have some sort of special request and have a lot of questions.  I can remember one time when I was younger and at a summer festival, I ordered “pizza on a stick”…classy I know, but I was a kid and anything on a stick is better than not….anyways, I ordered pepperoni and they gave me pepperoni and sausage, and I have never been a sausage pizza girl.

I didn’t realize it until I had already bitten into it, and I was NOT eating the rest.  My dad didn’t want me to take it back, but as a stubborn child who knew what I wanted (pepperoni pizza on a stick), I marched right back to the food stand, explained my problem, and was rewarded with a brand new pizza on a stick…sans the sausage.

I am also pretty picky when it comes to salad dressing (it must be on the side), and soup (it must be screaming hot).

Question of the Morning:

  • What special food requests do you make, and are you really irritated if they aren’t met or do you just let it go???
