I have been tagged by the insomnia bug. blah! I hate waking up before the sun.
Breakfast this morning was a hefty bowl of rolled oats/ oat bran. Thankfully we got more bananas My DSLR camera decided to run out of battery so I used my Canon PowerShot. I love all of the different settings I can get on this camera!
Here is a little Windy City recap from last night.
I have one word for Wicked, OUTSTANDING! My Auntie Donna got us amazing 4th row seats for the matinée showing. The woman who played Galinda was just phenomenal. If you’ve never seen Wicked, it is a spin off of the classic Wizard of Oz.
After the show, we walked to Rosebud, an italian restaurant in downtown Chicago. It just so happened to be 5 PM when the show ended and all of the (oh so good looking) business men were just getting off work.
Michelle and I decided to share an entree anticipating that we would have dessert. Thankfully we did because I think they served us an entire chicken. We got chicken in a white wine and garlic sauce with potatoes. I also got a minestrone soup to start.
This was just half of our dinner. I can’t believe portion sizes these days. No one needs 2 huge filets of chicken plus appetizers plus dessert!
After dinner we headed back to the northern suburbs to meet our cousins Jenna and Haley and my Auntie Andy for some…..FRO-YO at Red Mango!!!
I just about geeked out when I found out it was self serve! 45 cents per oz, not bad. There were about 8 different flavors and obviously I tried them all. Come on, I had to have a little bit of everything! My favorite flavors were the coconut, dark chocolate, and caramel leche. I topped my bowl with blackberries, pineapple, and graham cracker crumbs. She ended up weighing a whopping 9 ounces, oops. At least it wasn’t ice cream!
Aren’t my cousins beautiful?
This little one had 5 loose teeth! She is going to be one rich kid when the all fall out!
Red Mango is 100% natural, 100% gluten free, nonfat, and around 35 calories per ounce. They do not use any artificial sweetener, it has healthy probiotics, and…it is self serve so you can control how much you eat!
Today’s eats get a rating of Y.U.M.
