Dirty Dancing Giveaway Winner!

So last night as I was walking home from work, I saw someone who looked familiar on the street. I couldn’t figure out HOW I knew him, but he looked like someone I knew (and liked). As he crossed the street, it dawned on me – it was the DAD FROM DIRTY DANCING  (no, not the movie, the play that’s in Playhouse Square right now).

So, like the goofball I am, I shouted across the street – “Great performance!!” Thankfully he turned around, smiled and waved. Phew. I almost added “I love you!” but I’m glad I stopped. Because that would’ve been awkward.

Speaking of awkward, did I mention that Ali and I took a selfie on our way to see Dirty Dancing? Because that’s totally normal … right? I love my friends 🙂

but first ...

but first …

Anyway, I’ll get to the point of this post – to share the winner from last week’s Dirty Dancing giveaway!

Using random.org, it looks like the winner is LUCKY COMMENT #13!

WIAW: Sick Day Eats

I wish I had a more exciting WIAW Wednesday post to share. You know, a post that includes peanut butter cheesecake cookie dough blondies (yes these exist), homemade granola, this gnocchi and sausage soup and more of what I’m craving as I type this.

But alas, I had a sick day Monday. I woke up with a fever and achy. No stomach issues (I rarely get stomach sick), but super tired, feverish, a bad headache and sore. So what do I eat when I’m not feeling well? Here’s a sneak peek in today’s WIAW!

For some reason egg whites and veggies didn’t sound like they would hit the spot in the morning, so I opted for a pretty large bowl of Special K that took me about an hour to eat. It was probably close to two servings, so maybe that’s why it took so long? Oh, and yes – I eat it dry. I don’t like milk in my cereal.

I swear I didn't eat the whole box ..

I slept through lunch so I had a snack around 3 p.m. I started with some peanut butter and half a sweet potato with some caramels. I ran out of the homemade ones so had a few (more than just the one pictured – I had 3) ones from my cabinet.

Then an hour later I had another half of sweet potato with honey and cinnamon. Still my favorite snack.

B said he’d make me dinner and I napped again throughout the evening until dinner at around 8 p.m. B made some veggie burgers (my favorite – Luna!) and salads which somehow hit the spot. Oh, and yes, I also had some Arctic Zero. About 1/3 a pint #notashamed

So that was it! That’s what I ate on my sick day. Apparently I’m still hungry AND I crave comfort food as you can see – gotta have my ice cream, caramels, peanut butter, honey and sweet potato on my sick days!

Some questions for you:

  • What do you eat when you’re not feeling well? Do you tend to not eat much?
  • What comfort foods do you crave when you’re ill?
  • Favorite flavor of Arctic Zero? I’m almost done and need more!

PS – Thanks to The Big Man’s World for hosting this week’s WIAW!
