Another Sunday is here, and another week begins! We are in the final count down before school starts- officially August 10th! Where did the summer GO???
Last week I was able to only squeak in a CF session and a run! Isn’t that just sad….?
WOD (16 min time cap)
150 DU/300 SU
50 wall balls
100 DU/200 SU
35 wall balls
50 DU/100 SU
Ummm….yep, just as awful as it looks! It seems as my CF box is hell bent on making me face my fears of leg days! And I was sore for days after!! Well played, CF….WELL PLAYED!
I was only able to get my run in on Saturday while hubs and I had our little weekend get away in Orlando.
I went out at 8 am and it was BLAZING hot! I only was able to get a little more than 2 miles in….and it was SLOW! I needed to get something in because I knew I was going to drink and eat…poorly! 😂 #cheatday
Speaking of eating, hubs and I went to Christini’s. This was a new restaurant for both of us and it did not disappoint!
We had an appetizer of pasta with Quail Bolognese sauce and mushrooms..
Excellent!! I’ve never had quail before and it is true…tastes just like chicken! 😉
We had a great bottle of wine with dinner, The Prisoner
It was as sinful as it sounds and went perfectly with our appetizers and dinner.
Hubs went with the 32oz veal chop. That’s right…32 ounces of meat!
It’s what Christini’s is known for! Little know fact, the owner came by our table and told us this chop put them in the map. After they first opened, Bob Hope (THE BOB HOPE) came to his restaurant and ate this chop three days in a row. When he returned to LA, he was on The Johnny Carson Show and made a joke about this chop…and the place was flooded with people within a month. Stars from all over were coming to eat…and still do! What started out as a joke, he told us, put his restaurant on the map!
This chop comes with an apple reduction sauce and a small polenta cake. It was to die for!!!
I had the Spaghetti with Bolognese sauce.
By far, the best past dish I have ever had! I’m so glad that I wore a loose dress….
The evening ended with Tiramisu. I think we were so stuffed, we forgot to snap a picture! Trust me…it was good!
This restaurant reminds me of a time of elegance when dining out. There was a Maître d’ that walked us to the table, me in his arm followed by hubs. Two waiters greeted us and took care of us. It didn’t feel like hustling but being taken care of. I went to the restroom, I was escorted to the ladies’ room! We were honored with a after dinner drink from the owner of Limoncello (a mix of lemon, vodka and sugar) and all ladies receive a rose prior to leaving…
If you are ever in Orlando, please make it a point to check them out.
Hopefully this week will be better on the workout end. I know as soon as school starts, I will be able to have my schedule back!
Thanks for reading! How was your week??
