A Fast Food Kind Of Night…

Hi there!  Happy Tuesday!  What do you think about this cold front of weather that we are having lately?  I actually kind of like it.  I wasn’t ready to wear open toed shoes and capri pants just yet.  I mean don’t get me wrong, I absolutely enjoyed the beautiful 80 degree weather but I also enjoy the cold.  I’m loving that I can get a couple more uses out of my uggs right now.  It’s really freezing outside today.  Last night was pretty cold too.  I couldn’t even move from getting out under the covers today.  I was so exhausted.  I think it’s because I stayed up a little late last night reading the Hunger Games.  I seriously can’t put that book down.  I wish I could bring it with me to work to read.  I swear, it’s my goal to finish this book by the weekend.  I want to see the movie so badly!  I have heard nothing but good things about it.  It feels good to be reading again! I took way too long of a break from reading books.  I am hoping that on our honeymoon, I’ll be able to read the rest of the Hunger Games series while on the plane on just relaxing by the beach and pool.  I’m making it my goal to relax!

Yesterday was an all-around just blah day for me.  I don’t know about you but I definitely had a case of the Mondays.  It wasn’t good.  I couldn’t wait to just get home and relax.  I ended up just watching some tv and then Mike and I finally decided to go to the supermarket to get things for the week.  It was so late by the time we actually ended up going to the store. The nice thing about it was that it was completely empty.  I love being able to just go down any aisle and look for whatever you want while not being pushed by other customers or having a cart slammed into your side.  It makes for an unpleasant shopping experience.

It was interesting to see how most of the ground beef had been lifted from the shelves because of the “pink slime” going on.  I was happy to see that Giant got rid of their ground beef.  I read that they are going to be supplying pure ground beef without the “pink slime” in the coming weeks.  I have been wanting ground beef though.  I think that meat triggers Crohn’s symptoms for me but I think it’s only steak and other types of hard meats like that. I don’t think it’s from ground beef because I’ve eaten hamburgers and meatballs before and been fine.  So we decided to buy a VERY lean cut of organic ground beef for us to try.  I’m hoping and praying that I will be okay.  It’s just something different to eat instead of the same boring bland things I keep eating.

After shopping, we both didn’t feel like cooking.  I just wanted something quick and I was hungry and didn’t care at this point if my stomach hurt or not.  I wanted what I wanted and that was the end of it. So I decided on Chick-fil-A.

Introducing my dinner..

 

I don’t know what it is about Chick-fil-A but I love their food!  I love the smells.  I love the waffle fries and I love the chicken.  It’s delicious especially for a fast food chain!  Their unsweetened iced tea is delicious as well as their diet lemonade.  I think that is one of my favorite fast food chains.  I don’t eat fast food all the time but when I do, I like Chick-fil-A as an option.  What is your favorite fast food chain?

I have some other favorites of mine:

Starbucks – I’m not sure how much of a fast food restaurant this is but it is quick service.  I love their coffees specifically soy mistos with sugar-free vanilla syrup.  I also love their oatmeal and breakfast sandwiches.

Dunkin’ Donuts – Their coffee is pretty good and their breakfast sandwiches are too.  You can’t forget about the obvious, their donuts!

Subway – I love their veggie delight sandwich and their bread is heavenly.  It’s so soft!  I like the way Subway smells.  Haha.

Taco Bell – This is not a healthy option by far but I love their crunchwrap supreme.  When you go to Taco Bell, you either go big or go home!

Panera Bread – I love a lot of things on their menu!  I especially love their broccoli cheddar soup!

Wendy’s – Their chicken nuggets are so good!  I love the seasoning on them and how can you forget about a frosty?  I grew up drinking those!

Wawa – They are the best for quick sandwiches on the go, coffee, or any other snacks you might want!

Einstein Bagels – The best combo is a chocolate chip bagel with strawberry cream cheese!  It tastes like a chocolate covered strawberry!  So good.

Those are just a few of mine.  I’m drawing a blank and I’m unable to think of any others!  I’m not a huge fan of McDonald’s or Burger King at all.  I’ve never liked Burger King.  Do you like any of the same places as me? What is your favorite thing to order from a fast food restaurant?

Have a great Tuesday!

  1. Chick-fil-a diet lemonade forever has my heart! Yummy! Love you!

  2. I splurged on chik fila last weekend…so good. My favorites are Panera and more local chains like Primo and 5 guys. I do like taco bell, too though! But it’s almost always a bad idea. And girl do you really think you can hold off on finishing Hunger Games for 6 months?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!? I say read it now and then re-read it on your honeymoon…honestly I enjoyed it much more on the 2nd time around!

    If you’re craving red meat then you are probably iron deficient – a very common IBD thing. Next time you get your blood checked ask them to see what your iron and hemoglobin levels are. And give in and eat iron rich foods like red meat and….i forget what other ones haha. But I remember at my most anemic alls I wanted was a big juicy burger or meatloaf or anything from a cow! haha.

    • Yum! :) I tried Primo a long time ago and I wasn’t a fan. I’ll have to try it out again. Oh, no! I meant I was going to finish the Hunger Games by this weekend and read the other 2 follow-up books on my honeymoon! Haha. Sorry for the confusion! I couldn’t hold off for 5 months! I’m loving the book so much already. I must finish it asap! :)

      I had all of my levels checked and they seemed to be okay. I am definitely going to give in and eat meat though. Haha!!! That is funny!

  3. I’m looking forward to hearing what you think of The Hunger Games once you’re finished — and the movie, too! I absolutely loved it and thought they did an amazing job of staying true to the heart of the book. SO, SO GOOD.

    Favorites from your list –

    Chick-fil-a: LOVE the chocolate milkshakes and waffle fries!
    Wendy’s: ditto to the frosties!
    Starbucks: I would like to live there :)
    Panera Bread: it’s hard to choose only one favorite thing from their menu, but I’d have to go with the macaroni and cheese … now I feel like eating it!!

    • I will definitely let you know what I think of both! I cannot wait! :)

      I’ve never had a chocolate milkshake from Chick-fil-A1 I must try it! I had a banana pudding milkshake and that was delicious! I’ve also never had macaroni and cheese from Panera!! I am totally trying that once I feel better :)

      • Banana pudding milkshakes?! That sounds SO GOOD! Is it a seasonal thing? I don’t think I’ve ever seen it on their menu before. Oh my gosh, and yes, Panera’s mac&cheese is amazing! Fingers crossed you’ll be able to try it soon!

      • YES! They are super good! I saw that they are coming back next month! You have to try one! :) I totally am! When I can have it, we should totally do our Panera get together!

      • I just looked it up, and holy cow, they sound amazing!! They’re apparently coming back on Monday – I think it’d make a perfect pre-Passover treat, right? ;) And yes, I would love that! Whenever you’re feeling up to it, just let me know and we’ll pick a date :)

      • Oh, wow!! That is so cool! Yes, most definitely! Ok, sounds great to me! :)
