I wish my workout this morning was fun under the sun. But it’s another hot day so instead, it was fun under the shade. Actually it was more like, go walk under trees kind of day.
I didn’t feel like running today but I still wanted to be active. So I headed out to the park and walked for an hour, catching up on podcasts. Today, I listened to the one starring Lynn (this episode from The Because Show).
I walked a total of 4 miles.
I came excited to dig into my overnight oats.
Today’s jar included (mixed the night before): 1/3 C raw oats, 1/2 C coconut milk, 1/3 C cottage cheese, 1/2 mashed banana and 1 T chia seeds.
Topped with fresh strawberries, granola and sunflower seed butter this morning.
Loved it. I might add coconut flakes to the mix on the next one.
Last night, Chris and I met up with our friends Tom & Caroline to do some shopping and dining.
We headed out to Sports Chalet to check out the sale on fishing equipment.
I browsed around for a hat I can wear during my walks.
I also want to buy another pair of comfortable shoes that I can use walking around Disneyland. I tried these on (Kanuk shoes) and they were super comfortable. Cushier than Toms shoes, which is good. But it’s the same price as Toms, around $45 for a pair.
I am in love with summer dresses. I love the colors, the cut and how it’s so easy breezy to put on. I spotted these two that I liked. I came home with the one on the right side 🙂
Afterwards, we headed out to Pei Wei restaurant for a late dinner.
I’ve only been to Pei Wei once, at the Newport Beach location. I remember that restaurant being really busy. But the Huntington Beach location was not crowded, which is a welcome change so we took our time ordering and eating.
Did you know Pei Wei offers 100+ drink choices from their soda machine? No kidding. I’m not a soda drinker so I probably only name about 20 soda brands.
With 100 soda to choose from, it can easily take a few minutes standing there and going thru all the choices on the touch screen and deciding what you want. Chris said they offered sodas he has never heard of and sodas from other countries. I thought that was cool. However, I stuck with my iced Chai tea drink for the night.
The service was fast and we were served with our food in no time.
I ordered the Pad Thai dish with shrimp. Tofu add-ins were also an option.
The dish was good, it had a lot of complex flavors, as you can expect from Pad Thai dishes. I would order it again but next time I would ask for light sauce and request for more vegetables if possible.
I don’t normally it chunks of green onions when I cook, but they were great in this dish. I also loved the crunch from the green beans and the chewy mushrooms.
P.S. I ate shrimp and didn’t have any allergic reaction to it. So it’s possible that my allergic reaction during our honeymoon was because I ate bad seafood and not due to shellfish allergies. I’m still taking caution though.
Everyone ordered different dishes and we just all shared.
I tried most of the dishes but I specially loved the zucchini on the noodle dish.
My friend Caroline brought us homemade cookies and we enjoyed that when we were walking around after dinner.
I’m off to do our Sunday chores and hang out with friends later.
Have a good one.
What’s your favorite noodle dish?
I like pad thai dish, pancit (traditional filipino dish) and homemade spaghetti.
