I Drive, Derek Cooks

by Meghann on April 28, 2010

Man, driving to Tampa in the middle of the afternoon in the middle of the week is a breeze. With no traffic and no stress that drive is effortless. Why does this drive usually suck? Oh yea, because I usually take it during rush hour traffic on Fridays. *mental note* only drive to Tampa in the middle of the week – got it!

The drive may have also seemed better since I split it up with a stop at Whole Foods. I ordered the ‘Clearly Carrot’ juice which was made of carrots, apple, celery, beets, and kale.

This is by far my favorite juice combo of all time. It’s has the perfect juice blend of sweet and earthy. 😉

Right now you may be asking yourself “Meghann, why are you in Tampa when you are flying to san Francisco early tomorrow morning?” Well, that’s a good question! Turns out I lost the competition on whose airport would have the cheapest flight to San Fran.

Can you believe the flight from Tampa to San Fran was about $65 cheaper than the Orlando flight to Tampa? My Orlando airport let me down!

Derek and I tend to argue who has a better airport – Tampa or Orlando. I always vote for Orlando because it’s very easy to navigate and each terminal has a great selection of food to choose from. Derek always picks Tampa because it’s smaller and less crowded.  I guess we are just both partial to our hometown airports?

Well, since I made the drive to Tampa this afternoon at least Derek was kind enough to make dinner.

His parents joined us for a homemade feast of salmon, asparagus, and rice.

Derek made the Salmon that was topped with a mix of yogurt & fresh herbs.

Derek’s parents brought the wine.

and I brought dessert.

Despite they’re not so pretty appearance, the peanut butter blondies were a hit!

In fact, both Derek’s parents went back for seconds!

Now Maddie and I are ‘supervising’ as Derek finishes with his last minute packing. We have an early wake up call in the morning and I’m hoping he will have his bed clean soon so i can get some sleep. 🙂

Good night!

Time is flying, but I’ll take that as a good thing. 😉 Mid-morning I had a Simple Harvest Bar (freebie) as a snack. Lunch was once again consumed at my desk, but at least this way I will get out of here at a decent time! I had a leftover black bean burger with spinach more »
