Out to Dinner

by Meghann on February 24, 2010

What a day! What a day!

After taking two hours out of my morning to pick up the awesome Chevy Traverse, I was pretty swamped the rest of the afternoon at work. 100% worth it. 😉

I had to stay later than usual in the office to make up the time. Good thing I was well prepared with snacks to keep my grumbling tummy at bay until I was able to get home.


I had the mini peanut butter larabar at 3:30 and the fruit leather an hour later.

In order to keep my Echo from becoming too jealous of the Traverse, I decided to loan my car to my Dad for the next four weeks. My Dad drives a gas guzzling Expedition and I knew he would appreciate my 40 miles to the gallon Echo.

Him and my brother made the trip to Orlando this evening to pick up the Echo and grab a bite to eat. We headed to my Dad’s favorite Cuban restaurant – Habana Grill – where there just happened to be a $9.95 “buenos on a budget’ deal going on.


I order the Sancocho which was a Puerto-Rican Stew made with root vegetables, plantains, corn, carrots, and meat.


The meal started with warm cuban bread.


I love Habana Grill and have had some amazing meals here, but the stew wasn’t that great.


The soup was kind of bland – I should have added some hot sauce or something. I ended up eating all the vegetables and leaving the meat behind.


The soup was served with white rice and tostones.


I only had a little of the rice and traded one of the tostones for a sweet plantain that came on my Dad’s plate.

Isn’t my brother a cutie?


I had bites of both my dad’s and brother’s meals and instantly wished I had ordered either of theirs. Oh well. You live, you learn, then you return and order something better the next time. 😉

When I got back home I had the last of he macaroons Brittany had sent me and a Godiva chocolate from my Valentine’s stash.


I’m having blood work done in the morning which means I need to fast until the blood is taken at 7:30am. ‘Fasting’ is not a fun word in my head. I will just have to pack an extra yummy breakfast to enjoy as soon as they are done. 🙂

Very Berry Oats

Good Morning! Has anyone else been staying up way to late watching the Olympics lately? Last night I may or may not have passed out on the couch trying to catch it all. And there may or may not have been one too many Cool Running references coming from my mouth. “Some people say they more »
