I’m still resting my foot today!  I was going to do the upper body workout from yesterday again, but I’m actually a little sore, so I’ll do it again on Wednesday and Friday, giving myself rest days in between.  I worked at my computer for a while this morning, and when I got hungry, I still made my Sun Warrior protein shake since I love it so much!

Later I snacked on some carrots and hummus…

…and some vegetable chips.

We checked out a “new to us” restaurant here in Orlando called Spooky’s Black Cat Cafe.  It’s a small, hole-in-the-wall, local type joint (my fave!).  We started with the server-suggested beer bread and cheese.

Mmmmm…it was spot on.  Delicioso.  The hubs and I devoured it.

Next up, I went with a small salad filled with spinach, apples, tomatoes, feta, craisins, and maybe a few other goodies.

I just had to show my husband’s selection, too.  He went with the BBQ pulled pork and waffles with mac and cheese.  He was pretty impressed.

Sadly, dessert was the only disappointment.  I took a chocolate and peanut butter cake to go.

It was quite dry and just tasted like it had been in the glass case for a while.  I only ended up eating about 1/3 of it before stopping myself from wasting calories on something not-so-tasty!  I stole a few bites of my husband’s sweet plantains from Pollo Tropical, though.  😉

Overall, I would definitely recommend this local joint to anyone.  We LOVED everything we ordered (minus the dry cake slice).  I really like supporting local restaurants like this, so we’ll definitely be going back in the future!
