>Woman alone eats chocolate

>True story.

I’m alone on a Saturday night.  And eating chocolate chips from my freezer.  I’ve gone back for 3 4 nibbles.

Kyle is at his annual Father’s Day dinner with his Dad and USF friends (and their Dad’s) at his favorite restaurant, Del Frisco’s.  As I type, Kyle is probably enjoying a large, man-sized steak.

My first trip to Del Frisco’s – October 2008

And I’m home alone on a Saturday eating chocolate.  Woe is me!  haha!  I’m actually supposed to be studying for Monday’s organic chemistry exam (fyi- 99 on last week’s exam! Yeah me!).  I’ll get there, I promise!

For you Kim!

But first I wanted to share tonight’s yummy dinner!  Saturday is our “cheat day” for our very clean diet.  I’ve enjoyed quite a few carbs today.  Mmmmmm!

Dinner was a Margherita Tortilla Pizza.  It was so good.  It could’ve been served in a restaurant.  I mean it!

I topped a whole wheat tortilla with marinara sauce, home-grown basil and cherry tomatoes, and part-skim mozzarella.  I heated it in the toaster oven while I put together a quick spinach, red pepper, blueberry salad.

The pizza was soooooo good!  The sweetness from the basil and home-grown tomatoes was out of this world.  I ate it very slowly and in small bites to savor the flavor.

And then there were some chocolate chips!  A girl’s gotta compensate for being alone, right?  If only chocolate could help me learn organic chemistry.  Maybe someday.

Love and cocoa, 
Carissa & Kyle

Coupon Brag:
In last Wednesday’s grocery circulars there was a Buy 1, Get 2 Free Chicken Breast coupon for Albertson’s.  Publix accepts competitors coupons, so I was able to get 3 packages of chicken breasts for $5.89.

I had a great Publix trip.  Saved $49 and spent $31.  Holla!
