Harry Potter And The Horny Students

Good morning, Good morning! I wasn’t going to write a post right now because I only have a little time before I have a busy busy day, but I just needed to write about the new Harry Potter movie which I was lucky enough to catch an early showing of last night! On a sad note, I was out of carrot juice when I got home from my 6 mile run this morning :,-( Oh well, we’ll pick some up today; it’s just the perfect post run drink. On the bright side, I did get to finish off a mango lemonade,16oz vanilla chobani container, and 16oz TJ yogurt container, so I have plenty of room in the fridge for some serious grocery shopping later.

Ok, Ok, on to the good stuff. So we left for Boston around 3:45 even though the movie wasn’t until 7 because we thought there’d be traffic and we might not get seats and all that. Turns out it was smooth sailing on the highway and we could have got there at 6:30 and got decent seats, but at least we were overprepared and not under, right? In the car I enjoyed an almond & cashew KIND bar. I just love these because between those 2 all star nuts is a honey-date binder that’s really sweet like a candy bar. That and the bar has added omega-3’s, so it’s an all-around winner.

When we got there, we grabbed our tickets and then went out to get sandwiches for dinner. At first we stopped at Bina’s, the italian place with all the goodies, but I wanted to bring my sandwich in the theater and I figured melted cheese wouldn’t keep well 😦 So instead we went to UFood Grill where I got a turkey, swiss, and cranberry; does anybody else love Thanksgiving leftover sandwiches? I think they’re the best and this is the closest I can find in the month of July, so I’ll take it any time. I also picked up a Banana Nut Odwalla which I never tried before. I thought this bar was really really great–like a moist, flavorful banana bread. I was slightly disappointed to see that the first ingredient was sugar, but at least dates, oats, and bananas followed that, so the good outweighed the bad.

Well 7pm FINALLY rolled around and it was exciting. This movie is a great addition to the series. The cinematography and CGI has also shown drastic change from the first movie; sometimes it felt almost too over played and made things too unreal, but overall it was well conducted. The one noticible difference is that this movie is no longer the 8 year old birthday party film like the first few were; this movies is packed with action and hormones. Well, I guess Harry Potter’s getting the real high school experience: girls and drama. It certainly added a bit of amusement, which was a noticable difference in this film as well–it was actually funny. The earlier movies were packed with “feel good” moments that made you ooo and aww and want to dress up like a wizard. Sure, this movie had some of those, but it also added a lot of zingy one-liners and comical awkwardness that kept it lively. This is definitely a movie worthy of the Harry Potter series and not one to be missed.

The movie got out at 10. I was still chomping on my Odwalla bar, but I figured I needed another 500 calories for the night. Rather than just come home and eat a lot of same ol’ stuff, I figured a trip to J.P. Licks was in order. This is an ice cream place in Boston that makes tons of fresh flavors, and it had been over a month since I was there last so it was a good reunion lol. I love this place because of their flavored softserve. I’ll admit: The lumpy primate ice cream sounded intriguing, but I just can’t pass up their peanut butter soft serve. My dad got a blueberry soft serve, which was one of their flavors of the week. It was also really good and highly recommended for all you Bostonians.

I enjoyed that baby nice and slowly all the ride home. I just love licking ice cream on a cone because you can have it nice and slowly, but I really don’t like the cone part; any other cone haters out there? Well after we got home I made myself a Peanut Butter Cookie sandwich. Please tell me you’ve tried this, I swear it’s the best. And it’s so simple! Cream cheese and white chocolate peanut butter between some bread: the flavors and textures mold together and it’s irresistible. I use some toasted TJ Light Wheat bread; the resulting combination of high fiber(over 11 grams for the sandwich!), protein, and fat is just perfect and makes my run the next morning great.

almonds + cashews in one bar = amazing!!!
and that ice cream looks fabulous!

I love the in-theatre sneaky snack! I’m glad plenty of healthy ingredients followed sugar, but those bards can be deceptively caloric and devoid of nutrition, I take them with caution 🙂
