I am seriously a “little things” person. It is the littlest things that I get excited over, like….the fact that Starbuck’s came out today with their HOLIDAY CUPS! A sure sign that Christmas is coming 😀 Yes, I know, I should use my resuable one, but, there is just something about these little red cups that put a smile on my face….Probably even more so that it was filled with FF Chai Tea Latte!
I helped get The Husband off for the day and got a few things ready for the week. I planned out my meals and snacked on the most AMAZING Pulgiese Bread. It’s like a dense sour dough that is crunchy on the outside and chewy/doughy on the inside. LOVE it! I topped it with a smear of crunchy almond butter.
While I was shopping at Trader Joe’s I came across a NEW to THEM product ~ Doesn’t this Roasted Red Pepper Hummus look like a FAMILIAR Brand ~ Hello, Sabra Hummus for only $2.49!! I still have to taste test it of course, but the packaging sure makes me think Sabra!
After shopping for balance of our eats for the week I took a little road trip to bring The Husband Lunch ~ Nothing fancy, just Subway. I got their veggie patty on 9-grain honey oat with pepper jack cheese and ALL the produce.
Their patty is shaped for their sandwiches ~ funky. It was eh, ok – better than a plane veggie sandwich, but, not all that. Subway seriously needs to add HUMMUS to their sandwiches ~ then, they’d be AMAZING!
I am a total chip person (LOVE crunchy salty more than chocolate!) and I definitely think sandwiches NEED chips. I had some BBQ baked lays tucked away in my sandwich for a BBQ veggie patty sandwich 🙂
When I got back home, I had dessert. I cannot WAIT for The Husband to finish this bag off because they call my name every day.
I shopped and shopped and shopped to my hearts content today. I found a few goods deals on sweaters at New York & Co and Old Navy. I also scored a pair of shorts for our cruise at Old Navy on clearance for only $9 – SCORE! I wish I could’ve found more cruise clothes though. I think the most exciting part of my purchases might be my new toy! Merry Christmas to me 😀
Isn’t it beautiful?! I still have no clue how to use it and need to break out the instruction book LOL, but, I am UBER excited to figure it all out. Oh and I seriously suck at the touch screen so I do hope practice helps me out. I felt bad for the girl having to wait like 5 minutes for me just to enter my email address LOL 🙂
I managed to stay at the mall until they closed – whoa ~ first! When I got home I whipped up a fast and tasty dinner. I started with steamed tri color swiss chard.
Roasted Yellow & Orange Carrots with butter nut squash. I drizzled them with olive oil, sea salt and pepper then roasted them at 400 for 30 minutes.
I grilled up some boneless pork ribs with Gayle’s Sweet & Sassy Honey BBQ while the veggies roasted.
I inhaled all of this and went back for more 1/2 a rib and another scoop of roasted veggies – YUM!
