Today was filled up with outings – tomorrow is going to be more computer-heavy. Boo!
First I went grocery shopping. To Whole Foods. It’s a rare occasion that I don’t go when
1) I’m hungry
2) We’re on the way back from vacation
3) I have to get in and out as fast as possible for some other obligation
It’s so fun to browse the store! I mostly stuck to my list though, and put back smoked salmon, sharp cheddar cheese, tortilla chips and an herby salad in an effort to keep my bill a little lower. Maybe next week!
But I DID come home with something fancy – I was looking at this grass-fed yogurt when Steve, an employee, asked me if he could help me with anything. I told him I was just browsing and he asked me about the yogurt, which I had put back on the shelf. I told him I was intrigued and he said I could take it home to sample and stuck a coupon tag on the front!! It must have been my lucky day
So when I got home, sample is what I did! I poured some over Lynda’s Granola. It was DEElicious. Not too sweet, and just the kind of pourable yogurt I love. Also from a small organic grass-fed farm! Also, not cheap!
After snacktime and a bit of ingredient prep, Matt and I biked over to Karen’s to take her dinner. She just finished round 4 of 6 chemo treatments and the first week is always the worst. Although they did switcher to a different drug last time that seems to have helped her symptoms a lot. Just a few treatments to go and hopefully she will get back to normal soon!
I poured a POM seltzer and helped her fix her anti-virus software. I am her personal computer assistant!
She had put out some cheese that we snacked on with a piece of bread
Matt finished up dinner and then we feasted
We had local lamb from the Organic Butcher (shoulder I think?) that Matt seared and baked on the grill in a nice spice rub.
I worked on the side dish – a kale + greens mixture sautéed with those sprouted beans I’ve been eating all week and a sprinkle of sunflower seeds, plus a drizzle of honey. The sprouted beans were MUCH better cooked!!! They lost their earthy taste.
Lastly, GH Pesto Parmesan Swirl!
For dessert, I enjoyed two mango pits when Matt sliced them up for Karen’s breakfast
If you want to know what I look like eating a mango pit in real life, go watch the MANGO video!
We made it home on our bikes just before dark. I can’t tell you how many bugs hit my face when I biked!!
GOSSIP GIRL IS BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
