Rotisserie Chicken (171)

I had another uhh… interesting weekend this week. As I mentioned before, I drank alcohol for the first time in my life two weeks ago. All that was really left was to find out how much I needed to drink before I got drunk and so with a lot of leftover beer in the fridge from a UFC party forever ago, Mr. Pikko suggested we have an experiment.

We had some Budweiser Select and some Fire Rock Ale that our friend had left here. I drank the Budweiser first and it took me quite a while. The ale tasted better, but still didn’t taste that great. The second ale went down quicker and by the time he gave me the last Bud, I drank that in like a minute. After that one, the crappy wine we had bought didn’t taste so bad and I downed a little less than a glass all at once. I was ready for more, but thankfully I was drinking with my husband and he cut me off. So anyway, the lesson here is that anywhere else, I shouldn’t drink more than two beers because after that I become a snowball slowly rolling down a hill.

All in all, I thought it was fun, but it’s not something I’m going to do very often. The next morning I woke up really early and seriously hungry and I made a pan of fried rice (and ate half of it), drank like 3 glasses of water, then went back to bed. I woke up and weighed myself and was completely horrified to find that I weighed 129.3!!! As of this morning, I am 129.9!!! *sob* It was probably a combination of eating Korean food Friday, then sushi for dinner, plus all my leg exercises and walking, but still WTF… My pants are really freaking tight today and I’ve got to do some serious good eating for a while to get back to where I was. No more Sapporo Ichiban saimin or cinnamon bagel chips or ice cream…

Costco chickens have got to be the best thing ever because 1) they’re really cheap at $4.99 fully cooked and delicious 2) my kids actually EAT them and 3) they can last for two lunches, a dinner, and a bento. We ate at Arby’s Saturday, thinking fast food was cheaper but that came out to around $23. We ate sushi for dinner and that was around $25. Zippy’s can run around $18. With those numbers, Costco chickens win all around. I sliced this up after it had been refrigerated because when you slice it hot, it crumbles up.

Costco chicken goes really well with Nori Komi furikake, so I sprinkled some of that onto my rice. I’ve got about half a cup, so this bento is 2 points. I have some little carrot sticks and a tomato bottle with some soy sauce to put on the chicken. On the side there are chopped up mini bell peppers, which are really sweet. On top are three skewers of shelled edamame.

I bought myself a new bento box last year when I ordered an item from JList for my grandma. This one is a pale green Totoro box by Skater, who makes awesome boxes.

A Ninja Sushi just opened by where we live and I’ve eaten there twice already. They have really beautiful sushi pictures and so far I’ve had their Osaka Maki and their Tiger Maki. Once again, I forgot to take pictures. 🙁

I had Mr. Pikko take a picture of me for some ZAM marketing thing, but I’m posting it here to show off my BJ Penn tank top. Too bad you can’t really see much of it, lol. The front has his face and his signature. The back says “Just Scrap Sexy”.

    Umm… Hate to break it to you, but beer can make you gain weight easily. It can turn a 6 pack to a beer belly.

    I need to lose weight too. ;_;

    I have been getting ready for a hamburger contest, and I’m starting to turn into a hamburger.

    Beer is all carbs and empty calories to boot! Stick with wine 🙂

    Wow going for it with the alcohol eh? Careful what you mix, can get you really sick… maybe not right away, but when you get up the next morning…

    And Zippy’s OMG expensive… I think I only go there when they have some special or I have to pick up chili tickets LOL. Uhm, $9 for a ZipPak, {No thanks!}. I rather go St. Louis Drive In and get a bento for $6.
