Celebratory sandwich

I got promoted at work yesterday. Woohoo!! It feels so good to be recognized for my hard work – definitely made me extra motivated yesterday. :) Adam and I considered going out to celebrate, but I wanted to do that with my parents once our kitchen is done (SO close!). This way we’ll have 2 things to celebrate about. ๐Ÿ˜€ So we didn’t go out to a super fancy dinner, but I did treat myself for a little something special – a prosciutto sandwich from Tatte.

Look at this big guy!!


Prosciutto, goat cheese, fig, arugula on a french baguette



I had all these plans to eat just half, or eat it open faced – nope, it was too amazing. I just couldn’t stop eating it. I did give Adam a few very generous bites (you know, “guy bites”). :) Tatte is definitely my favorite bakery in the Boston area!!!

After my celebratory dinner, I called my parents to share the good news with them, and Adam poured some “champagne” for us (edited to add: my dad would like to point out that Korbel is a sparkling wine – not champagne. So technical! ๐Ÿ˜† ). He even took the pictures for me.


I was laughing hysterically at this picture below. Yeah, food stylist he is not. ๐Ÿ˜‰


The rest of the day’s eats…


Turkey, egg, cheese and avocado on a FFL english muffin


It was hard to taste the avocado but the few bites I did get with it were excellent. Kind of a fun veggie addition to breakfast. ๐Ÿ˜€

A mini Larabar – these are tiny but today one did the trick

During my lunch break, I took the Rope’n class I’ve blogged about before. We start with 3 minutes of jump rope, then alternate between 1 minute jump rope (with different moves – high knees, twists, sideways, etc.) and 1 minute some other exercise, finishing with jump rope sprints. Man, this class was tough! I still did everything the instructor asked for but I was definitely feeling it. I’m glad my legs were up for such an intense workout after my 9 miler. ๐Ÿ˜€


Ellie Krieger nutty sweet potato soup (I froze 2 servings and reheated one today) + Ryvita crackers


This soup is so flavorful. I just love the peanut buttery goodness!

Celebratory truffles after dinner. The white heart had a lemony filling and a gold leaf on top for decoration. I’m really in love with these truffles.


How do you like to celebrate special occasions?
