Good Wednesday Morning All! Hope you are all having a wonderful first week of May. I am keeping today’s post a little shorter as I am busy packing and getting ready for my 1,100 mile journey back to Phoenix this weekend. I leave early Saturday morning and am hoping to make it back in one day but will see how things go. I did enjoy a relaxing weekend and managed to even fit in a little shopping. I posted a photo on Instagram of the new Nike capri pants that I found on clearance at REI. I have only ever purchased black capris and these are the first pair of ‘loud or colored’ capris I have bought. Ignore the miss matched stripes :)
I also decided to splurge on a Food Saver that Costco had on sale. I had tried a mid range food saver a few months ago and was skeptical but after seeing how well the chicken kept in the freezer and positive reviews I decided to take the plunge since this one was a great deal. Now I need to figure out the best deal for bags….sounds like maybe Bed, Bath, and Beyond with a coupon….any tips or hints on bags for me? I treated myself to a container of raspberries.
Now a quick look at my eats from this weekend.
Since I had a partial bag of frozen strawberries to eat up by the end of the week I have been enjoying them at breakfast.
Mid morning repeat snack of rice cakes and TJ chia/flax crunchy peanut butter. Yum! Followed by 32 oz of water…anyone else need to drink water after eating PB?
Lunch was a snacky combo featuring some awesome raspberries. There were so flavorful and firm yet ripe. Not mushy at all!
The raspberry theme continued with this delicious local raspberry lemon bar made by Bearded Brothers in Austin. It was fantastic. I saw a kale and beet variety at Whole Foods on the weekend that I think I will try before I leave.
I also added some TJ honey wheat pretzel sticks to the mix
I have been listening to library audiobooks on my iPad lately.I took a break from sorting and packing to sip on this cold La Croix
I had a lone pork chop in the freezer and topped it on top of a sweet potato. I had plans to eat at the table but then felt lazy like sitting on the couch and watching an episode of Chopped All Starts instead. Sipped on a Dallas beer as well.
Also got my green quota of the day with a salad and used up the last of my vignette in the fridge.
That’s a wrap for today. Can’t wait to post next week from home in sunny Arizona! Hope you all have a great week!
Do you have a food vacuum or food saver? Any tips for me?
Any favorite audiobooks or are you an audiobook fan?
