We are back at the old grind. The first week of real life after vacation felt loooooong. It’s good to be back at work though, and great to be back with the dog!
Here were some of the best bites this week…
With strawberry watermelon Polar that’s my new favorite flavor.
I also tried the caramel almond Nutchello. It was pleasant but not as strongly flavored as I was hoping for.
Midmorning snack of baby carrots and wonderful red cherries.
Cafeteria lunch. They are making a fancy new hybrid burger that is half turkey half veggie; it was good! My korma veggies were not so good, I ended up swapping them for fries.
Yogurt bowl. Salted caramel noosa (<– yum!) with blueberries and blackberries and awesome gorp-style trail mix my aunt gave us. Plus a golden nugget mandarin orange on the side.
Better yogurt bowl. Plain Greek yogurt, berries, red plum, Nature’s Path Heritage Flakes, nature’s sprinkles (chia) for healthy fat, and Amy Sedaris’ sprinkles for joy.
This ridiculously adorable cookie from Starbucks made for a fun end of the day snack.
And carrots with caramelized onion dip was the perfect thing to crunch through while I cooked this week.
We also really enjoyed lemonade with pink lemon! Perfect with mint sparkling water. The lemons were orange on the outside, pinkish on the inside, and sweeter than their yellow counterparts.
Brinner for the win. Banana pecan pancakes, berries, and amazing turkey bacon, with maple syrup poured on after the picture.
Breakfast for dinner is always a good idea, but it’s a great idea when your drink and dessert are also on theme. We planned the pancakes because we both had coffee-flavored beers to try.
And we tried the crazy expensive, crazy good Compartes donuts & coffee bar. I thought it was totally worth the price.
Our other dinners were also winners. Nachos! Maple bacon kettle chips with TJ’s low-fat three cheese blend, turkey bacon, shredded turkey breast, broccoli, and green pepper.
And Greek salad night. Greens with Greek feta dressing, cucumber, tabouli, TJ’s stuffed grape leaves, and crunchy roasted chickpeas.
Last night we ate Chipotle and caught up on TV. <– kind of the best date night
