Weeklong Wrap-Up; The Top Five

It took a week longer than I’d hoped, but I’m back to feeling 100%!  The alternative title for this post was “Cough Drop Chronicles.”

In the interim between this post and the last, I ate a ton of food but didn’t have it in me to capture most of it.  Adam and I made amazing, ridiculous nachos – maple bacon kettle chips baked with a blend of eight cheeses – but I shoveled them into my mouth before there was time to let them cool, let alone be photographed.  On Saturday I went to a wedding shower that served lunch – awesome lobster ravioli with big shrimp on top – but the only person I knew beforehand was the bride-to-be so I was too embarrassed to get out my camera.

Instead of a full post, here are my “top five” from the past week.

1. Liquid breakfast.  I was feeling my sickest on Monday and these three beverages were all consumed over the course of the same morning.

Green smoothie.  Frozen spinach, mango, and coconut water.

Lavender GT Kombucha.  I shared this with Adam and he actually liked it even more than I did.

“Mocha.”  Hospital coffee with a chocolate soy milk.

2. Sweet stuff.  These three desserts were the very best of the week but only the tip of the iceberg in terms of consumption.  I made it through by having a cough drop or hard candy in my mouth pretty much all waking 12 hours a day.

Whole Foods peanut butter sandwich cookie.  This was basically a giant, soft peanut butter cup.

3. Another beverage/sweet.

Arizona Fudge Float Sparkling Soda.  This was practically a can of egg cream!
