I have recently discovered one of the best perks of working from home and making your own hours: grocery shopping on weekday mornings. Oh wow. It is seriously a WHOLE different world in there at 9:00 on a weekday morning. I took a trip to Trader Joe’s this morning and it was basically me, two other people and the employees. I strolled the aisles listening to the jazz music, took time scanning the shelves and left feeling calm & happy. Just a LITTLE different from a weekend shopping trip: “scuse me mam, can I just squeeze by you, excuse me? HELLO! Move your damn CART!! Coming THROUGH! Oh yah – no problem, go ahead and write out a check and then balance your checkbook while I wait behind you, no problem, I don’t have anywhere to be, god dammit, there is seriously no parking?? Oh wait – maybe that’s a spot, nope! Just someone parking like an idiot.” I don’t know why I always did that to myself, weekday shopping it is now!
After the morning shopping trip I snacked on some fresh raspberries. I had to put them away quickly because I could seriously eat an entire container in one sitting – SO good!
For lunch I had a little leftover eggplant (with tomato sauce and cheese of course) and the usual spinach salad with leftover roasted broccoli, carrots, feta cheese and hummus.
For an afternoon snack before crossfit I had some pretzels with edamame hummus and a piece of toast with peanut butter. That edamame hummus is the bomb! Only thing that sucks is the bottom is inverted and there is WAY less in there than I had hoped. Damn you Trader Joe’s, you little tricksters!
For dinner I made baked potatoes which I mashed with some BBQ sauce topped with shredded chicken and served with a side of snow peas and pancetta.
Head on over to Peas & Crayons for more yummy eats!
WHAT MAKES ME HAPPY:
The longer days!!
I love as we approach summer how the days get longer and we have more sunlight. Its so nice having more light to enjoy the day and get stuff done!!
