If you knew about the new Trident Layers Swedish Fish gum and didn’t tell me, I am re-evaluating our friendship.
Is there some sort of candy competition taking place in the gum industry lately?
They need to come out with Reeses Peanut Butter Cup gum next. Or Three Muskateers. Or Snickers. Like, someone needs to inform the brands to skip the candy flavors and hit up the chocolate department already.
I didn’t buy the new gum yet, I am waiting for you to tell me it’s good.
Anyway, let’s take a look at what I ate on Sunday!
Last week’s birthday delivery from Love Grown Foods made me so happy especially because I now have a fresh bag of my favorite oatmeal. Have you tried the Super Oats Chia & Quinoa? It’s the best! I love the plain variety but they do offer some flavors too.
In the mix above – cooked oatmeal served cold mixed with berries, Skoop B-Strong and peanut butter.
Before I forget — Skoop is launching new products in August (so excited!)and changing some current packaging so for the rest of the month of June, they are offering 20% off B-Strong, A-Game and B-Lovely. Use code BAG20 at checkout.
Such a great deal, you know I love my Skoop B-Strong!
As I mentioned on Monday, my friend Lisa always makes the best parties.
Even when she tells you she isn’t going to stress things or go all out, you know you can count on really good veggie platters (the hummus was so good, I have to ask her which kind it was) and chopped up salads along with the usual party foods (read: pizza).
I had a few plates that looked like this. Her salads are always so delicious!
My son only eats salad at her house and then yells at me that I can’t make salads like Lisa does, even though I follow her ingredients and instructions exactly as directed.
There’s just something she does to the food I guess that makes it special. I don’t know why this is but I have asked her to put together some basic salad recipes for us and she is excited to share!
I somehow missed a picture of the cake but I was first in line for the fruit.
I sort of took home a ton of the candy available at the candy buffet.
I made sure there was plenty left for the kids so it’s all good.
My son and I headed home quickly after the party to get ready to meet my parents for dinner at Cirella’s.
I love Cirella’s not only for their dessert but for their diverse menu. You can go Italian or completely satisfy your sushi cravings…or do a little bit of both.
We had a spicy tuna avocado roll (with brown rice) as an appetizer before our main course.
Is it weird that I spent time trying to teach my son how to properly eat edamame so that he is in the know?
For my main course, I ordered the pasta primavera with zucchini noodles in place of pasta.
It was more like zucchini ribbons than thin spaghetti strands but still just as delicious! I really need a spiralizer.
You already saw my birthday weekend dessert finale on Monday but it is so worth sharing again.
Gigantic sundaes loaded with ice cream, fresh chocolate chip cookies and fudge brownies are a real good time, especially when they are served in a giant martini glass.
I actually used to have this very same martini glass on my counter only it was filled with m&m’s.
We had put it away when my son was little because he not only went for everything crystal and breakable as a toddler, he was too little to be around small things like m&m’s but now that he is 11, I think it’s safe to take it out again. If I could find it, that is.
So this sundae by the way…
We need to start making things like this at home. Simple enough, right? Load up a giant glass with ice cream or frozen yogurt, bake up some cookies and brownies and add our toppings.
Party in a glass for sure!
