No, I didn’t throw a few backBut I did have a shot portion cocktail and a shot glass milkshake tonight!
And….I FOUND CHOBANI!! I called Lowes Foods first to make sure they had it. And the best part? They were all on sale!! I got 2 big tubs and 2 of each small flavor. But since they’ll last until September I probably should have gotten more, but I didn’t know how much I’d like it.
The verdict? I tried the honey flavor and honestly, I think I’d rather have the plain one with my own honey drizzled on top. I think I’ll have similar feelings about the other flavors – why not put a cup’s worth of fresh blueberries for much more volume and less sugar? However, when fresh berries aren’t available, affordable, or the yogurt needs to be on-the-go = perfect solution. I can’t wait to taste the plain flavor, but I have to finish our open container of Fage first. I have a feeling I might like Fage better, but for 60% of the cost, I’ll pick the cheaper.
I really didn’t want to have this before dinner (I got home at 4:45) but I wanted to try it so we pushed dinner back until around 8:00. I spiked my chobani with another new find: Kashi Honey Sunshine!
I found HS and the new U cereal at Lowes. What’s with Harris Teeter being so behind the rest of the world!? I liked Honey Sunshine, but I prefer H2H, which I can buy in bulk at Costco. U is pretty calorie dense (more like a granola) so I think I will use it as a topping more than a base, but I still can’t wait to try it. Waiting until we’re out of HS before I open it though. If I can resist…
I also found Method candles majorly on sale!!
While we were waiting for hunger to come to start dinner, the husband made a cocktail and made me a tiny one in a Cocktail glass. Basically an Old Fashioned minus the orange. I always get double cherries!
The husband had plans to bake bread tonight so we centered dinner around a spelt loaf hot out of the oven.
Grilled veggie sandwiches with goat cheese and cilantro pesto. I ate mine open faced:
At the farm stand today I picked up some fresh okra and the husband did it cornmeal style again. It was more steamed than crispy from a crowded pan, but still good. With ketchup for dipping.
Girls On The Run
I am excited to share that I am going to be working with Girls On The Run this fall as a site volunteer for one of the girls running teams! GOTR is an after-school program for 3rd-8th grade girls that uses the power of running to help prepare girls for a lifetime of self-respect and healthy living. At the end of 12 weeks of training, they run in a 5K. I worked with the program when I was a camp counselor in college, and it’s a really fun way to get girls excited about running. I’ll be volunteering on Wednesday afternoons throughout the fall semester with 3rd-5th graders. I hope I can move up to assistant coach in the spring (I had too many schedule/lab conflicts this fall). I think it will be a perfect match for my career in wellness.
So while we prep for the season to start, I’ve been cutting brochure stuffers out the wazoo! I did 400 tonight while watching House Hunters on HGTV!
And lastly, the husband made a milkshake tonight with mint chocolate chip and brought me a shot’s worth. Perfect portion!
