Good morning friends! Hope you are all having a fabulous week and the weather is finally starting to improve where you are living. The sun has finally emerged for two consecutive days here in Dallas….fingers crossed that the warmer weather is on its way. The Rock N Roll Dallas race was held on the weekend and while I didn’t participate in the race I did head to the expo to browse the exhibitors. I went first thing in the morning and it was great. There happened to be a Jaybird booth and after talking to the guy about the problems I had with the headphones I returned he was able to troubleshoot what was probably wrong and I ended up buying pair. I used them on Monday and they worked wonderfully. I still need to perfect the fit in the ear but being free of cords is wonderful. These are the ones I got if you are curious.
After the expo I headed to a nearby farmer’s market that was having the first opening day of the season. I picked up these local organic strawberries for a delicious treat. So much more flavor compared to the supermarket ones.
I also made a long overdue trip to The Fresh Market. I spotted this coffee on sale for $6 each. I tried the caramel one yesterday and it was yummy! I have been craving some nut butter but didn’t really feel like almond butter. Nuttzo was on sale so I picked up a jar!
Breakfast the next day was hot Kodiak Cakes and bright berries along side a cup x2 of the new coffee!
The gym is quite subpar at this apartment complex I am staying at. They have some spin bikes though that I have been trying out lately. Also there is wifi at the gym so I have been biking while watching Netflix. After coming back from the gym I was so thirsty but not overly hungry. I needed to head out the post office to mail some packages and knew that I needed something to eat before braving the long lines! Some Nuttzo on some rice cakes with tons of cold water! I like the combo flavor in the Nuttzo and haven’t had it in months.
By the time I got home I was starving and still needed to hit up Costco for groceries. Seeing as I was low on food I whipped up a batch of Kodiak Cakes. Delicious and quick! More strawberries before heading out for more errands all afternoon. The berries tasted as wonderful as they look 🙂
I had planned on picking up a sweet potato but the selection was poor unfortunately at the store. While at Costco I picked up a box of individual guacamole cups. I enjoy guac but find it always goes bad if I make a batch of it as I don’t eat it quick enough. They were sampling this one and it was chunky and not overly garlicky. I got home again later than I had hopped and was starving. I paired the guac with cut raw veggies and a local cold beer while I was cooking dinner.
I cooked a chicken breast that was a lot bigger than I had thought. I ate half for dinner and saved the rest to take to work the next day. Salad topped with tons of TJ’s sundried tomatoes and mushrooms 🙂
After a busy day I enjoyed relaxing on the couch with fresh popped popcorn.
I tried to bust out of my repetitive meals this week and think I succeeded despite some busier days. I am looking forward to maybe trying out some local hiking trails here this weekend if it stays warmer and dries up.
Do you have any plans for this weekend?
Are you a frequent shopper at farmer’s markets?
Any new food finds lately?
