It’s Finally Here!

Hello Spring! ❤

Well, actually this is a little bit late I’m afraid.  I created this post last week and wasn’t able to publish.

The weather was nice, so I decided to go for a walk to clear my head. The breathtaking view of the Bull Run Mountains peeking through the trees from a distance is like the morning sun rising bringing promise to a new day; and the irises and grass beckoning and conforming that spring season has indeed arrived.

As I reached the highway, I made a beeline to the grocery store to buy greeting cards and chocolates.  As I was crossing the bridge, a shiny object caught my attention.  A nickel!   The walk has earned me a nickel!  Yay! 😀

There wasn’t any pathway as I passed the bridge and people who saw me probably thought that I have lost my mind walking through muddy grass and hopping like a frog to get across.  😀

Well, I made it to the strip mall.  As I walked through the parking lot, I noticed a new restaurant that will be opening soon; Sakura Grill, a Japanese restaurant.  A food banner display made me so excited I couldn’t help but take pictures.  Look at how scrumptious all the dishes are.  Mm…I especially like the Godzilla Roll and Deep Sea Roll.  It’s so nice to finally have a variety of restaurants nearby.  My husband and I love Japanese food.  We will be  trying out this restaurant for sure. 😀

Well, it was quite a walk.  I took a different route going back.  The walk took me two hours overall.  I left home at around 8:00 a.m.  My legs had quite an exercise and I was famished when I reached home at 10:00 a.m.   I didn’t want my exercise to be for naught, so I had my usual healthy comfort food, Open-Faced Egg White Omelet with Quinoa with a glass of ‘green” (green apple, wheat grass, spinach, and celery) drink.   Satisfied.  ^_^

 

Come dinner time, we opted for a healthy dinner.  My husband requested his favorite winter drink afterwards.  But instead of serving it hot, I served it on the rocks;  for two.  😀  You can get the recipe here.

I also want to share the delicious dinner we had about a week ago.  The Harissa Chicken from  fromthebartolinikitchens.com. I highly recommend this recipe because it was really delicious.  My husband and I really liked it.  If you are searching for a new chicken recipe to try, try the Harissa Chicken.  You can get the recipe here.    Check it out, you won’t be disappointed. 🙂
