Roasted Garlic + Chocolate Chips = Ice Cream?

Monday, June 02, 2008

Yeah, it sounds weird, but I love garlic, I love chocolate chips, and I love vanilla ice cream, and happily, Sebastian Joe's shares my loves! Hubby and I biked to the park for a picnic yesterday afternoon and discovered this phenomenal ice cream at Sea Salt. This place is fast becoming my favorite restaurant! I think I will be very sad to see them close for the fall...

In diet and exercise related news, I'm afraid I don't have much to report. After recovering from the extensive biking last weekend, a coworker shared his kid's mild stomach bug midway through last week, which became my excuse for indulging in chicken noodle soup and homemade parmesan biscuits the rest of the week (hint: the soup isn't the diet-breaker here). And to top it off, I didn't go to my regularly scheduled gym activities, despite the best of intentions.

I did keep my calories in check for the most part, but I feel rather slackerly nonetheless. This week is off to a good start, though, with biking and BodyFlow (yoga/pilates) class planned for after work tonight. (Here's hoping the rain holds off just a bit!)

So the plan for this week is 3 yoga-type classes (probably all BodyFlow), 3+ hours of biking, 2 weight lifting sessions of at least 20 minutes, and if I get really ambitious, a session with the elliptical on Thursday as well. And then maybe I'll have room for another garlic ice cream cone. We'll see!

    Garlic ice cream?! I've seen ginger and wasabi, but not garlic. How interesting! I think I'd like to try it, but am too uncertain to order an entire cone. Way to be adventurous! Weather permitting, would you and hubby like to meet Chester and I at the park for Sea Salt and perhaps some croquet in the nearish future?

    I hate when pesky things like biscuits seem innocuous enough until you have 3 or 4 (at least, that seems to be my problem). I have this wonderful recipe for pumpkin rolls which I like to make with soup, which are healthful in theory until you get into multiple servings. Oh well, I think it's a living and learning type of situation.

    Hope you're Monday's off to a good start, and see you this evening!
