Emergency! Wiener dog without arms on the loose!
Just kidding. :) She lays down and her arms disappear under her chunky barrel chest. I love it.
Today was a BUSY day. And I’m still working! We took a break from studying + working to go to Costco around 1 PM. I brought OJ and nuts with me:
But, on the way to Costco, I declared a hunger emergency, and we made a pit stop at Starbucks for an English muffin, egg, and cheese sammie.
While waiting for the sammie, I posted an Operation Beautiful note on the drive-through window:
I’ve noticed a pattern — as I get busier and busier, I start relying on Chipotle, Thai takeout, and Starbucks more and more! I think the problem is compounded by the fact that I’m bored by our normal groceries, which usually involve prep time and lots of cooking.
The Husband agreed with me, so we decided to pick up a few new items at Costco that will hopefully make our lives a little easier in the kitchen. I don’t like eating a lot of processed foods, but processed foods from home are generally healthier (and cheaper) than stuff I can get at a drive-through.
And anyway, the alternative is more PB sammies or hummus sammies. I’m sure you guys get bored seeing sammies for dinner all the time… at least, I know I do!
While at Costco, I had a few random samples, including PUMPKIN PIE!
And sweet potato fries:
When we got back home, I made a bowl of fruit…
… and reorganized my home office.
Ta da! It’s not done yet, but it’s close. My work computer is still out because I’ll be doing some consulting for a while. Once I’m officially transitioned to a consultant, I’m going to take down the monitors and just leave the laptop so I can move it more easily.
Snacked on a cracker with cream cheese:
Did more work, and then made dinner. The star of dinner was this organic pasta:
Which we had with tomato sauce and a side salad:
Two thumbs up! Excellent pasta and it only took 5 minutes to cook. I need more 5-minute meals in my life.
Dessert was some mini M&Ms:
Whew! Long day. My hunger, which was non-existent after my race yesterday, came back in full force today! It’s weird how that works.
What’s your "fast food" weakness? Now that I’ve discovered a Chipotle down the street, I think I have a problem with burritos.
Not really "fast" fast food but the closest I get…a local (actually a couple of them) Greek place that has DELICIOUS gyros. I get the chicken or mushroom at one and the gyro (lamb) at the other…though I want to try their veggie and tilapia versions, too!
