So, I actually went to the grocery store today. And planned a healthy, home-cooked dinner. Pat on back.
And then, on the walk home, a nasty migraine stuck. Nasty. I don’t get these often, but when I do they roll through me like a summer thunderstorm: suddenly and rather violently. Literally all I can do is take some advil, lay down, and doze for an hour so. After which I feel totally fine and back to normal. So weird.
Anyway…the migraine monster attacked precisely during my dinner-cooking window, so it didn’t happen. The hubs came home, gently woke me, and suggested delivery.
Then he held up this:
A flier from…Domino’s? Really?
“But look at the price,” he insisted. Yeah, I had to admit. Pretty unbelievable.
I’ve had my share of Domino’s pizza and have never been terribly impressed. At my old job, it was one of the only places that delivered late at night. I suffered through many a mediocre pie.
But they have done this whole image-flavor-makeover thing, I guess. Okay, willing to give it a shot.
Since the special was for two pizzas, the hubs and I each created our own. Me, chicken and feta on “crispy thin crust”:
And the hubs, a pepperoni-and-pineapple deep dish:
This pizza was….well, it was alright! Certainly a step up from the “old” Domino’s. There was still something sort of fake about the cheese, and the crispy crust was not exactly crispy, but I enjoyed the sauce and the rest of the ingredients. Certainly at $5.99 per pizza, it’s a great deal!
Now it’s time for some relaxing and email/work catchup. I hope I’m not an insomniac tonight, after my migraine power-nap!
Today’s EAT: It is not an exaggeration to say I ate nothing from my own kitchen today. Kind of sad.
Breakfast was a biscotti and iced coffee from a coffee shop. Lunch: turkey sandwich from Cosi. And dinner…well, you know about that.
I spent way too much money feeding myself today. Tomorrow, it’s back to home cooking!
Today’s DRINK: I didn’t really feel like having wine after my migraine. I am sipping on an itty bitty glass of port now, though!
This was open from cooking dinner the other night, and I wanted a little something sweet. Perfect 🙂
Today’s RUN: Running also fell victim to the migraine monster. Oh well, Wednesday is a good day to take my weekly day off anyway!
Today’s QUESTION: Do you get migraines? How do you deal with them? Mine are quite infrequent, so I haven’t really felt the need to go to the doctor or anything. Just advil and rest for me. But man, they are so incredibly awful on the rare occasions that they do strike!
