After the gym Michael and I went to Five Guy’s for lunch! He’s been really good on his diet again this week and since Wednesday he’s been talking about wanting to go to Five Guy’s for lunch on his “Binge Day.” I am not on the diet really anymore, but I am eating a lot of the same foods as Michael (just with added carbs). I went happily because not only was I famished after my great workout, I was kinda craving a burger too.
Did you know that they post the calorie information on the menu? I just love it when places do that! Michael got the super duper bacon cheeseburger. I got the Little Cheeseburger (still 550 calories but way less than the other option). I got ketchup, mustard, lettuce, grilled onion and relish on it. It was orgasmically good.
It’s been a long time since I had a burger. In fact, I think it might be all the way to March when we were on vacation in Arizona and went to In-n-Out (now that place ruled).
Did you also know that the fries at Five Guy’s are more calories than the burger I got? Now that’s crazy! We skip the fries there. Honestly, they aren’t really needed.
It hit the spot. After lunch Michael and I frantically tried to plant everything I bought before the rain arrived. I bought several jalapeno plants, one sweet orange pepper plant, rosemary, two different kinds of tomato plants, romaine lettuce and some flowers. I consulted a website to find out what things can be planted together and what vegetables should NOT be planted near each other. Good to know this stuff!
Man it was back-breaking work in the yard. Not only did we plant all the veggies, I planted a bunch of flowers in pots on the deck, we pulled weeds and then I started hacking down the huge blackberry bushes that are sprouting up everywhere. There were humongous ones growing inside our Rhody tree. I was drenched in sweat by the time I was done with that task. Who needs a gym when you have a huge yard? Sheesh!
The goal for the next sunny weekend is to plant the following: spinach, onions, cucumber, broccoli, zucchini, thyme, basil, oregano and strawberries for me!
Saturday night’s “Binge Dinner” is homemade pizza again. Check back soon for a post on how to make the perfect pizza!
QUESTION: Any tips on growing a vegetable garden?
Don’t forget to get some basil plants! They are so easy to grow. I wish we had space for a veggie garden.
We just got a 5 guys around here. I need to call them and ask where the beef comes from.

We are definitely getting basil! We each so much of it we have to.
Five Guys is great. Hope you get a chance to try it!

Nothing beats a good burger! I had a GREAT one yesterday. Seriously.
It had been TOO long since I had a burger!
We have a psychic link. :)! Also started a veggie garden today. I’d love to grow half of the fresh veggies that my family eats. It’s been a long time goal that seems to get sidetracked each year. I am trying the square foot gardening method and also planting in every container I can find. We are starting with some quick crops…carrots and radishes, so the kids will stay interested. I also stuffed a bunch of herbs in a pot, because they cost too much at the grocery store and we put up one of those tomato bags that hangs upside down. That one makes me nervous, because tomato plants get heavy, but we’ll see! :)! The only good advice I have is finding a source of mushroom compost to use solely in containers or at least as an amendment. It makes things grow like crazy! Wishing us both luck on the summer harvest.!
I almost bought one of those upside down tomato things! Let me know how it works.
We eat sooooo many veggies. It’s ridiculous how much money we spend. My hope is that the garden is successful and we save some money of veggies and herbs.
I believe that the nutritional/calorie info at Five Guys is for their “all the way” items (usually the stuff in blue on the list). Mayo is on that, so without the mayo, a little hamburger is only 380 calories! Pretty awesome in my book. 🙂
I did not know that! That’s good to know! 🙂
And I never get mayo, so that’s awesome. 😀
