I came home to some of THE COOLEST Mail! I don’t know about you all but I LOVE seeing things popping out of my mailbox or boxes on the porch. The first package was from Thorlo! Do you all remember when I won Erica’s Thorlo-Experia Socks Giveaway? I am soooo excited to try these socks out. I am a BIG fan of Bolga running socks so I cannot wait to see how these compare.
The second package you all will not believe! Are you sitting down and ready for this?! It sounds ALMOST too good to be true. The fantastic people at PB Loco sent me the most AMAZING sounding jar of Adult peanut butter ~ Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough!!!
You can actually SEE ALL the chocolate chunks all over the jar ~ check out the bottom (P.S. This is the best type of plastic #1 to have too!)
I LOVE that they use non-hydrogenated oils ~ no transfats!
Plus, they included 2 RECIPES to try and 5 little Fun Fact Cards. Can you believe that American eat over 800 lbs of peanut butter a year?! Or my favorite one ~ it takes approximately 850 peanuts to make a 18 oz jar of PB ~ that’s ALOT of peanuts!
I have to admit I was highly tempted to dive right in ~ I mean, chocolate chip cookies with peanut butter – YUM! However, I resisted because I have more than met my allotment of healthy fats for the day (I KNOW you will be seeing this in the morning – so stay tuned for REVIEWS!!!)
After opening my “fun mail” I decided to burn some more calories while helping The Husband out (NO, not like that!!) I mowed our front and back
weeds lawns plus our neighbors and then for fun, my Mother In Laws! I was trying to help support The Husband’s cause to fill up our Green Waste bin each trash day – he’s funny like that. I am so paying for it now though with my allergies kicking in ALL night, but, it was worth it to make him happy and make his day easier.
When I came back in, I was starving, but, I needed a shower before I could even think of doing anything. I decided to snack on a few FoodShouldTasteGood Chips. A couple multi-grain, 1 Buffalo and 1 Jalepeno.
I LOVE how BIG these tortilla chips are, not to mention that they have a TON of flavor too! Dinner tonight was a FAST and EASY favorite that I tried during my Vegan Adventures. It is from Vegetarian Times Mag and it only takes like 10-15 minutes from start to finish – I LOVE recipes like that. You can click HERE for the recipe.
Vegetable Gyoza w/Edamame SoyCatash
I use 4 TJ’s Thai Vegetable Gyoza instead of per serving.
I know I am a bit behind on your comments and blogs. I will catch up on your comments tomorrow for sure and hopefully your blogs too! It all depends on how the day goes. I have to take my car to get my a/c fixed (it stopped working now that it’s going to be 100+ degrees!) plus it’s a busy day….only 2 more days – woot, woot!
Have a good night all ~ see ya in the morning!
