It was one of those weekends when I kept looking over at hubby and telling him 'this is the best day ever' (I do this a LOT) but it really was great! I know we sound like one of those sickeningly happy couples and probably are, but what can I do? :)
We decided to venture out to Half Moon Bay and spend the morning at the beach.
Hubby surfed while I took pictures, behaved like his groupie, and read my textbook. It was cold but such a fun experience. I forget how lucky we are to live 45 minutes away from a beach, even if I have to wear sweats and a hooded sweatshirt while there.
I had been stalking and drooling over the idea of going to The Counter ever since they opened an East Bay location. I read about it on Lara's blog, The Dining Detective and knew I would love it. The concept is that you can build your own burger by choosing your own toppings, protein, bread, and cheese. You can also chose to put it on a bed of greens. I took a picture of my clipboard but you'll have to zoom in or check out their full menu here.
Here is my beautiful creation:
Turkey burger on a multi-grain bun with sprouts, roasted red bell peppers, marinated green peppers, goat cheese, and grilled pineapple. Amazing.
The hubby had to show off and ordered the special- a bison burger. He seemed to enjoy it.
We each ordered peanut sauce and though it sounds odd, it was a great combo. I made more peanut sauce to eat later this week when I did my food prep.
I have been doing great on my yoga challenge! I have only missed one day this month (I am fully aware that it's only July 5) and actually took a rest day because I was feeling sore. This has to mean that yoga is doing something, right? I also hit a milestone and took a 3 mile hike yesterday. This is big, since I haven't been able to wear running shoes in a month. I'm hoping to get some good news from my doctor tomorrow and get the green light to start moving like a semi-normal person. I'm off to hit the stationary bike and read my book, then zoom off to my yoga class.
Hope you are all enjoying the rest of the long weekend if you are in the US and otherwise enjoying summer.
P.S. Please come back for the next post- a guest post from my fabulous hubby. I'm clearly a fan.
