Gesundheit!

Oh man, has allergy season hit us with a vengeance.  I feel just horrible!  My throat hurts, my nose is runny, and my head is an achy, foggy mess.  All of that complaining is to say – I missed a lot of pictures this week, many of them of candy and/or coffee because I pretty much had to have a liquid or hard candy in my mouth 24 hours a day.  That said, I got to go on several mid-week dates with the husband and it was actually a pretty great week.

breakfast

Smoothie.  Vanilla almond milk, frozen banana, blueberries, raspberries and dates, chia seeds, and a scoop of vanilla pudding mix.

Adam prefers his smoothies creamier than icy so I thought the pudding would help with texture but it gave the smoothie an offputtingly sweet taste.

Breakfast date at Doughnut Plant!

Good but not great.

This “Simply Red” from Pork Slope was amazing.

And then we got a flight at Ample Hills for dessert.

It came in an egg tray and was amazing and delicious and I was basically dying.

That’s all I photographed.  Have a great weekend!
