I am so stuffed with salad!!!!
I did some shopping after my appointment this morning since it’s right next to huuuuuge brand new shopping center. I hit up Old Navy first and found a few things super on sale! Then I went to Banana and Ann Taylor and could hardly stand to look at the price tags. The exact same T-shirts they had a Old Navy for $8 were $25 at Banana!? And dresses at Ann Taylor were $130 when similar styles are $25-50 at Target + Marshalls. I may be one to spend $8 on a jar of almond butter, but I just can’t stand to pay full price at those stores – unless I find the perfect unique item. My clothes take such a beating, getting sweaty, riding my bike, etc, that I like stuff that I can wear and wash for a good price.
Shopping tired me out!! I came home around 12:30 and had a few chips with my new favorite salsa to tide me over while I made lunch. I used to like jarred salsa when I was in high school, but sometime during college it lost its appeal (perhaps everyone always had the cheap oniony brand?) So finding this Newman’s Own was like rekindling an old flame!
For lunch I made a salad with my new Gingerly dressing. I liked it, but I got sick of it by the end of the bowl. It’s got a little of that bottled taste. But I’ll use it again.
My salad had:
- Snap peas
- Goat cheese from the farmer’s market, which although it smelled and looked OK, didn’t get eaten after all. I think it had a funny taste.
Oikos with blueberry preserves + wheatberries
Too much volume!! (And the seltzer fizz didn’t help).
That VeggieGirl is TOO KIND!!! Look what she sent me! I’m going to save these for a special time when I have used up some of our open nut butters. I bet they’d be great on veggies! Cannot WAIT to try ‘em! Thanks, Veg!
Still undecided but leaning towards the small print. Might go see if there are any other fabrics this afternoon…
See y’all for dinner!
