Recent Meals + Trader Joe’s Shop + Rainbow Cookies

I’ve been working hard on putting together Friday’s post which includes my top Sephora Spring Savings picks. I can’t believe it’s just about time for the sale again!

I’m excited to share that with you and equally excited for the Stoney Clover x Target collaboration to launch this weekend too. Is it Friday yet?!

In the meantime, let’s talk about recent meals.

What I’ve Eaten Recently 

I couldn’t decide which pizza to get at Gino’s so I went classic with one regular and then added a grandma slice.

Note: Just like I mentioned last week when discussing how I no longer have a runner’s appetite, I cannot eat both of these slices in their entirety.

I had the regular slice with a salad and picked at the grandma slice — and then started to feel extremely full.

It had been a while since I last had a bowl from Cava. I still like Cava but it’s like I always say – it’s more out of convenience than an O-M-G I must have a salad from Cava.

I live nearby so it’s an easy decision when I want something fast. If I didn’t leave nearby, Cava likely wouldn’t be a destination for me.

All the necessities are here!

I decided to have vegetable sushi one night — such a rare choice for me these days.

I wanted something basic for dinner Monday night after work so I made chickpea pasta shells and broccoli with butter and parmesan cheese.

A greek salad with roasted potato wedges is probably one of my favorite weeknight dinners. It’s easy to throw together and just so good. I just need about 35-40 minutes to roast the potatoes, sometimes a little less. It just depends upon the size of the potato and how many wedges I get when I dice it up.

My dad brought me rainbow cookies the other day. I keep them in the freezer so there’s no pressure to finish them and then I have a fun snack when I remember they are there!
