I love summer weekends because more time outdoors means less time indoors which means less opportunity to open my laptop.
Summer weekends also mean I am completely behind on blog reading, post development and just about everything else related to workweek stuff.
Normally I try to get a jump start on the week, organize myself and my post ideas sort of like food prep but, um, yeah. That didn’t happen this weekend.
What did happen though is that I got the Panera people to make me the Power Hummus Bowl (without chicken plus avocado) even though they removed it from the menu.
As I put my running fuel in my pocket at 5:30 am Saturday morning, I giggled to myself because to the average person, this fuel looks more like an afternoon candy break.
The best part of finishing a long run, especially Saturday’s really hot and sweaty long run, is coming home to your favorite breakfast in a jar.
I am telling you, in those tough running moments, thinking about this breakfast and how amazing it tastes after completing a run, is enough to get me through the miles.
The other day I told you that I tried the Dunkin Donuts Chips Ahoy iced coffee. Since then I have tried the Oreo iced coffee two times and really like it.
Granted I have them add less pumps of the Oreo flavor to avoid a too sweet for me taste but if you ask my opinion, it’s really good and better than the Chips Ahoy which is not what I would have expected. I discussed it with the employees too and they agreed – Oreo is the customer favorite.
On the topic of cookies…
Do you know Carlo’s Bakery? Do you watch his show?
He opened a Carlo’s Bakery location near me and I finally checked it out.
I love watching bakeries in action, especially when they are frosting the cakes 🙂
It’s a really nice store with lots of bakery goodies AND chocolate covered strawberries.
I stopped in on Saturday, a few hours after my long run, saw the berries and went for it. I didn’t want a cupcake or a cookie, the fresh berries just seemed more appealing to me and my post-run appetite.
It was quite delicious mainly because it was covered in a good amount of quality dark chocolate.
Saturday was also the last day of my son’s Little League season. Part of me will miss the chain-link fence view of the field over the summer but the fall baseball season will be here before I know it.
You know you are having a good day, by the way, when your phone case, hair tie on your wrist and lip stick all match perfectly.
I was at Whole Foods at some point and loaded up a box of special stuff from the food bar but don’t ask me what because I haven’t the slightest idea.
Can we talk about tofu though quickly? Do you eat it regularly? Do you cook it regularly?
I actually enjoyed it twice over the weekend (possibly in the food bar box too, who knows) but wonder sometimes about the whole soy <-> estrogen issue.
Do you watch your tofu intake because of it? Do you eat tempeh instead?
Please let me know your thoughts and have a great Monday 🙂Carlo's Bakery & Weekend Stuff #Carlosbakery #wholefoods #dunkindonuts #tofu #weekend Click To Tweet
Talk to me about tofu. Please.
Did you enjoy your weekend and avoid your computer which means you are Monday morning disorganized mess today?
How do you take your coffee?
