Even though my workouts didn’t go as planned last week, my mood was PMS-free! Everything (and everyone) was so much easier to tolerate.
My biggest issue last week was going to Trader Joe’s TWO TIMES for cinnamon and leaving BOTH TIMES without cinnamon. I need cinnamon for my oatmeal!
How screwed up can a person be to keep going to Trader Joe’s for cinnamon and leaving without the cinnamon?
By Friday, I was back at Trader Joe’s for my third time in five days, totally scared that I would forget the cinnamon again.
I remembered it (thank goodness) and also picked up a few other things that I don’t normally get at Trader Joe’s.
Let’s talk about the vegetable patties. They actually remind me of Dr. Praeger’s veggie littles.
I bought the cauliflower & broccoli and the carrots & peas vegetables patties but neither should be confused with any type of protein/meat replacement product. They are simply vegetable patties, not a protein supplement for us meatless eaters.
So far I tried the broccoli & cauliflower and it was just okay. I bought them mainly for my son to eat since he never eats vegetables so we need a little more time to try them for a proper review. I will report back in a few days.
Organic Superfood Pilaf – I picked this up with my son in mind (because he needs more superfoods in his life) under the assumption that I can eat it from his plate when he tells me he’s not eating anything called superfood pilaf.
Sriracha Roasted Garlic BBQ Sauce – We like it! It’s definitely spicy though so a little bit goes a long way.
French Onion Soup – Haven’t tried it yet but will let you know what we think when we do.
Work wise things were a little quiet for me last week which was just what I needed.
There was a big conference going on (Catersource) that everyone in the event industry was attending so I was able to get things done on my end with little interruption. I needed a week like this to regroup, focus and organize myself (and prepare for this week which I know will be insane).
Why even mention the snow days last week, right?
Today is the first day of Spring! Only warm weather ahead. 🙂
Speaking of warm weather, should I be starting to organize my son for camp already? Why do I feel like I was just planning and packing camp clothes?
I certainly won’t mind the break from my son’s outdoor hockey season this summer, that’s for sure. I mean, I LOVE hockey and I love to watch him play but the 9:00 pm games followed by 9:00 am games as we had over the weekend? I can live without.
I had lunch with someone I used to know at Panera and took the liberty of ordering us salads to keep us both healthy for our old age.
The biggest slice of chocolate cake of my life happened last week! I know we already discussed it but it’s worth mentioning again since it was a monumental moment in my life.
Chinese take out is always a good thing. My son taunted me a few times with the boneless spare ribs but I didn’t mind. I sort of miss them but don’t crave them or care when they are near me so he didn’t bother me.
And what’s a week without my salad from The Cheesecake Factory?
