Our anniversary dinner last night was great! I have to count it as a cheat meal due to the presence of Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia and Coffee Heath Bar Crunch ice cream at the end of the meal. DH made broiled Chilean sea bass (with a store-bought Asian fish marinade instead of using the miso glaze recipe since he couldn’t find any miso, but at least he seasoned it with something), garlic mashed potatoes, and an apple spring mix salad with Jamaican mojo dressing. Dessert was the aforementioned ice cream — one small scoop of each variety.
If it weren’t so hideously expensive at $20/pound, I think I could happily eat sea bass every day for the rest of my life.
Those of you familiar with our Total Money Makeover quest to be debt-free except for the house by October will be happy to read that DH paid for the meal ingredients by taking the contents of his pocket change piggy bank to a Coinstar machine and getting $72 back for all of the coinage.
We made it to the gym this morning and DH hopped on the elliptical while I did the scheduled LLCJ incline HIIT run for 20 minutes. I padded the workout with 15 minutes of GGCW boxing when I got home, unlocking more clothes for my avatar to buy in the virtual store, a new outfit for my trainer, and two new female trainers. Such geeky joy!
I will get in some yoga tonight to make it a solid 60 minutes of exercise for the day.
