Adventures in Baltimore

Happy Monday everyone!  Only 4 more days until my vacation!!!  How was everyone’s weekend?  Mine was full of  traveling, sports, and sweat.  Let’s back up to Friday.

After work, I turned on Yoga Meltdown to get that out of the way so that my Friday could be full of relaxation.  I’m probably going to pick up the DVD at Target this week to bring on vacation with me, I don’t want to have to take a week off from it, and I want to see what Level 2 is like.  For dinner I picked up these new DiGiorno 200 calorie pizzas.

There are two individual pizzas in the box, and each one is 200 calories, but since this was my dinner, I made both.

They were actually really, really good.  Definitely a lot better than the Lean Cuisine pizzas, and more like actual real pizza.  While I can’t imagine that one is anywhere near filling enough, two was a perfect dinner.  I’ll definitely be picking these up again for a quick solo dinner.  After dinner, I poured myself a glass of Malbec and tackled my pile of laundry.  It wasn’t a very exciting Friday night, but it was relaxing and just what I needed.

Saturday I was up bright and early and on the road to Baltimore by 8:30.  The drive was relatively painless, and I made it there just before 11.  Dani, Ricky, Keith, and myself immediately went on a search for food and mimosas, and found them at the Gin Mill.  I mean is there anything else to do on a beautiful, summer, Saturday afternoon with college friends besides drink?  Nope, I didn’t think so.

And when in Maryland…

A fantastic crab cake sandwich and truffle fries.

After lunch, it was time to head over to Camden Yards for a JMU Alumni picnic before the Nationals/Orioles game.  The picnic took place on the upper terrace of the stadium, and included free food and beer until the start of the game.  I think they had some forms of BBQ sandwiches, but I was there for the beer.  It was soooo hot, and the ice-cold beer was going down like water.  I think I had about 5 Miller Lights, before abandoning the scorching heat and finding a spot in the Warehouse Bar to watch the second half of the USA World Cup Game.

Dani and I in the bar sporting our patriotic red and blue.  Sadly the USA couldn’t pull off the win, but they still played great.  After that it was time to venture back out into the sun, to at least catch some of the game.

Soo many different faces.  After the game we went back to Keith’s house to change out of our sweaty clothes.  The rest of the night was a disaster, as you can probably imagine.  We lost someone in the streets of Baltimore, only to find them 3 hours later at home on the couch with no idea how they got there, and just general drunken antics.  We cannot drink like we used to.  That is for sure.  It was a great time though, as always.

Yesterday morning we were all struggling just a bit, and after piecing together some of the night went out for some food.  Then it was time for me to get in my car and head home.  Traffic was a little heavier on the way home, but thanks to my 4 volumes of Glee music I was entertained the whole way.

By the time I got home I was exhausted and ready to relax on the couch, but somehow got suckered into making dinner for everyone.

Grilled chicken, zucchini, squash, and corn on the cob.  I hate to admit this, but I’m getting sick of grilled chicken and veggies already.  Time to switch up the grilling combos for a while I think.

What a fun and exhausting weekend.  After time with my college friends I always spend a few days recovering, hopefully today goes by quickly!

  1. oooh that reminds me, I have some squash and zucchini I need to do something with before it turns on me. The clock is ticking!

  2. It doesn’t get better than crabcakes & mimosas- esp. crabcakes in Bmore 😉

  3. “we can’t drink like we used to” – current story of my life.

    Sounds like you had a great weekend! I want crab cakes. Like now…

  4. Truffle fries?! Swoon.

    Yep, Glee always makes car rides go so much faster! Glad you had such a fun weekend!

  5. I’ve been wondering about those pizzas! I’d definitely eat both.

    Glad you had a great weekend!

  6. I totally agree that both would have been a more appropriate serving for me too! Looks delish!

  7. The low calorie meals are ALWAYS too small!! Thats why theyre so low calorie!
    I remember my mom bought the “25% less sodium” box of Lipton chicken noodle soup, when I went to make it I found out how they got it to be 25% less. You only make it with 3 cups of water instead of the usual 4. Awesome!

  8. I’ve been wondering about those pizzas but I kept thinking that one was never going to feel me up… duh jessica, eat TWO.

  9. Ok, I know I’m WAY late and you are clearly not in baltimore any more…but YAY! My home town! Also, thank you (from an Orioles fan), for not wearing any Yankees stuff to Camden Yards. ❤ 😉
