Day 19 – Monday, March 24th

I don’t know if it was all the meat I ate over the weekend, or all the booze I imbibed, but I had a craving for some roughage today.  Specifically – dare I say – a salad.  No, I haven’t gone all fruity on you – I’d never get a salad as a main dish without meat in it of course.  Working from home today, I didn’t see much in the fridge to make my own salad – neither meat nor veggies – so I decided to hit one of those fast food joints.  I remembered seeing a Wendy’s commercial the other day, so I ventured into the hot Florida sun to track down their new Asian Cashew Chicken Salad.

I was surprised, because this salad rocked!  Fire-roasted edamame, spicy roasted cashews, chicken, and a spicy Asian chili vinaigrette – it was taaaaasty!

Day 9 – Friday, March 14th

Today I woke up telling myself, “Hey – it’s Friday!  Don’t screw up like you did last week and eat meat like an idiot!”  So I went on a quest to find something satisfying that wouldn’t drain my wallet.  First I went to a local restaurant/bar, Banana Boat.  After Ashley handed me Bud Light, I perused the menu but couldn’t find anything that I could order and get served fast enough to get somewhere to watch the Florida/Missouri game in the SEC Championship.  So I decided to go up the road to the local Wendy’s and try their Premium Cod Fillet Sandwich.

“Premium”?  I guess so – larger and more filling than their competitor’s fillet.  But a bit pricey – I think it’s twice the price of the Irish-sounding counterpart, McDonald’s Filet-O-Fish.  Wait – is that really “Irish-sounding”?  Maybe I think so because it’s almost St. Patrick’s Day – anything with a “Mc-” and an “O-” must be Irish.
