Food-Filled Family Fun

seriously good weekend full of family and food. i feel like i have been eating straight since friday night!

i did notice something today though - i have been eating 3 meals a day and no snacks. i guess bigger meals really do keep you fuller longer.
started out the weekend with crab stuffed mushrooms (which is really just a huge crabcake on top of some mushrooms) at mo's when W arrived from bwi. they serve such big portions there it's almost improper. luckily my meal was just an appetizer (i also got a side of steamed broccoli and had one of dad's onion rings) but i still had to take some home.
saturday morning i made a huge plate of scrambled eggs with the leftover veggie hash plus a couple pieces of turkey kielbasa. it was sooo good and filling. it's always great to sneak veggies into breakfast too. the eggs held me over until lunch with E and W at san sushi. no pictures but we ordered a bunch of sushi rolls  and nigiri and also had some miso soup and salad with ginger dressing. i think my favorites were the shrimp tempura roll and the eel nigiri. yum!

W was speaking at a fundraiser that night so we ended up having dinner there. typical fire station fare - fried chicken, pasta and potato salad, green beans, sliced beef and ham. they did have maryland crab soup which is always full of veggies so i had some of that with some green beans and 2 slices of beef with horseradish and bbq sauce. (it's also possible i had a couple bites of cake too:) W did a great job speaking - he is quite the public speaker:) he talked about the beauty of the whittington center and the plethora of activities it provides. if you are ever in new mexico, it's a must see!
after the fundraiser, we headed back to meadowvale and played the board game quelf - the unpredictable party game that gives random a new name! if you have not heard of or played quelf, you are missing out. it was seriously one of the best games i have ever played. we had so much fun laughing and just making fools of ourselves. i highly recommend it. (we got ours at target but they also have it at

not sure if i still have your attention, this post is becoming longer than a harry potter book.

if so, for breakfast, we met C and L at miss shirley's cafe on cold spring lane. the food was excellent but the prices were pretty high. if you are looking for a great brunch spot when friends come into town though, i highly recommend it!
finally, for lunch we headed to the corner stable. W can't make a trip to MD without a stop for ribs and fries at the corner stable. in my opinion, hands down the best ribs i have ever had. i'm sure lots of people disagree with me. perhaps someday i will take a bbq tour around the country to solidify my assessment. but for now, corner stable baby back ribs are #1.

after all that food E and i were very happy to just have a green monster for dinner.
this one included:
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
3-4 cups raw spinach
1 medium very ripe banana
1 medium navel orange
8 large frozen strawberries
2 tbs of twister mix (ground flax seeds, chia seeds, and brown rice powder)
1 cup ice

whew! this concludes my food filled weekend. hope yours was great!
