Where’s the Beef?

It’s been a filled but successful day.  I knew the days before I left for Orlando would be stressful but thankfully, especially for a Monday, today wasn’t too bad.  And hopefully it will be over soon and I’ll actually get to sleep after dinner.

On my way out of volunteering I grabbed a (caramel biscotti)coffee with 2% milk.

Then I came home and geared myself up before heading down to the nearby coffee shop to work.  I filled out notecards from 2:30 – 5:30 and had a yummy lunch.

“Queen City” Eggplant sandwich; blue cheese, hot sauce, and field greens.

And small side of horseradish potato salad.

I wished both dishes were a bit spicier but they were very tasty.

The husband stopped by around 4:30 and distracted me for the last hour or so planning a very exciting trip.  I can’t wait to tell you guys about it once I get back from my spring break trips.

The dinner plan is this turkey burger recipe.  It’s been on the menu planner for more than a month but somehow it wasn’t until all the other ingredients were on the counter that it occurred to me we had no turkey!  Whoops!  The husband was such a sweetheart to run out and get more.  And while I waited I figured I’d do this lunch post :)

I blame my interim snack on Jessica -

After gummi cola bottles York Peppermint Patties are my favorite conventional candy.

I’ve got to go make my husband a well-deserved dinner, but hopefully I’ll be back with a final post for the day not too soon!

What is your favorite kind of ‘conventional’ candy?

  1. Ahahah glad I could ‘help’ in the snack department. :)

    I love jolly ranchers! I don’t know why, but the watermelon flavor drives me wild.

    And M & Ms of course.

    THOSE!!! I’m a peppermint addict (well, and chocolate, too) – I buy the Newmans peppermint cups regularly. As in daily.

    • Emily says:

      Are the Newman’s more like a pb cup or like a York? They sound good but I’m worried the ratios will be off.

      • Lilliah says:

        They are like peanut butter cups- Sunspire makes vegan peppermint patties similar to Yorks, but I think they taste like hellll. I buy the Newmans because they’re the best natural peppermint/chocolate candy I’ve found. The filling is lighter- it’s not as fondant-y like Yorks. Yeah, that’s right- “fondanty” is a word ;)

  4. Just stumbled upon your blog!

    My favorite snack would probably be the Reese Cup “Big” I ate today after failing to find the Reese eggs. Amazing.

    I just got my blog up and running but have no readers yet… if you check it out, I’d love to hear your comments :)
