It’s Food Stalking Day!
Now that we know that dancing and sex cancels out booze, I actually had a DETOX weekend at the wedding. Because I DANCED so much. (YOU GUYS!!!)
I also had other good stuff beside litres of champagne.
Friday, the day I left for the wedding, I met up with 2 of my Besties for lunch. We went to Dean&David, a place I visit quite frequently if you noticed. But maybe you didn’t, so I tell you again: Dean&David is a favorite place of mine to have lunch. Because I can order my own salads and make them as big as twice my head. This time with beef. #lunchselfie
The chocolate monster hit in the afternoon, so I rushed into the next supermarket to satisfy that craving. It’s all about balance, right? Chocolate and Protein. In my handbag.
Post Powerlifting: The shock over 45 minutes Deadlifts was washed down with the mentioned shake. After recovering, Vanessa and I cycled home and I threw together a simple meal. And by throwing I mean LITERALLY throwing things around in my kitchen.
As mentioned, I woke up STARVING on Saturday morning at the hotel, on the wedding day. We all know that weddings are tricky – you never know when you will get to eat the next time. Horror Scenario: Fainting from low blood sugar cause of lack of food at the church.
So I HAD to make sure I fuel properly so I wouldn’t start to bitch at the priest.
I sent this pic to my friend Christian and he wrote back:’ Ya know, I hate these people like you. You could divide this amount into 2-3 courses. You’re so greedy.’ Haha, omg, he’s so damn right. Not going to lie, some of the food fell off the plate. But honestly? I was terrified that if I don’t take it all at once, it will be gone when I go back the second time. #seriousproblems. Jealousy about food. I grew up with 3 other kids, so my behavior is extremely legitimate and understandable. My dessert eaten with a spoon and sans bread: Nutella. No shame.
Greedy me I snaffled some stuff from the buffet to my hotel room where I snacked on it before I definitely had to rush (and fall on the floor almost) to the ceremony.
My appetizer at the reception was champagne. I was busy taking selfies and trash talking to everyone, so I totally missed out on the little melons with ham or bruschettes.
I hardly dare to admit, that I demolished something like 27 sugar covered almonds during the whole night. Really!! My table neighbours tried to hide them from me. No chance. As soon as they weren’t looking, I threw them down my throat.
Anyway, the real meal was a Caprese Terrine as a starter.
The we had the most perfect beef with ONE shrimp. ONE. I had to hold myself back from laughing out loud. You know already that I asked for more, yes? Of course I did. I got 2 more. TWO. Besides that, the course was DELICIOUS, the meat absolutely PERFECT.
The one thing I was ACTUALLY waiting for all day was dessert. Holy mother of Sugar Heaven.
There was warm chocolate cake, white and dark chocolate mousse, lime cream and fruitsalad. My disinterest about the fruitsalad was obvious. I never eat fruit for dessert. I mean, fruit IS NO DESSERT. Sorry, but that’s what I think. Dessert must taste moist and fudgy and sweet and decadent. Just like this unbelievably delicious chocolate mousse of which I had about 4. I walked around the hall and collected all the mousses that weren’t eaten. Is that inappropriate? The chocolate addict in me gives a shit.
Happy Wednesday Lovies!!
Do you like sugar covered almonds? Of course I love chocolate covered almonds more, but I take sugar covered ones anytime.
Do you pile food on your plate like me? (Careful what you say here)
What did you have for breakfast today?
