1. Thank Goodness It’s Friday, right?
I had an eye appointment this morning and it had been 3 years since the last time I went – oops! I got some new contacts ordered AND bought a new pair of frames/lenses. The glasses I have now are a cheap $8 pair of sunglass frames that I popped the lenses out of and had prescription lenses put in and I’ve had them for about 7 years, so it was time. I needed them to have the right prescription anyways and I got a really cute pair. I should be picking them up in the morning :)
Today was crazy busy at work. I had so many emails to work through, plus we’re trying to set up working remotely from home to see how that will work, so I was working on a bunch of stuff today. It felt like a full day even though I was only there about 5 hours. I am glad I only had one day of week this week and now the weekend – that will make getting back into the office easier after the trip.
We didn’t eat all the ravioli last night, so I brought that with me for lunch.
I also brought a small salad with the leftover romaine I cut up last night, plus 1/2 of a tomato from our garden.
and a nice, crispy apple.
Hooray for produce :) I wonder how long this excitement will last! I know I’m already psyched about going to the market and grocery store tomorrow.
I got pretty hungry at work this afternoon, but I was working on everything so much that I never stopped to have a snack. Nick and I ended up running around after work checking out vacuums since ours broke, so I had this in between stores.
Yup, I finally found the Coconut Cream Pie LARA bar right before we left for our trip. I’ve been looking for this flavor since I saw it on a blog MONTHS ago!
I realize that I haven’t tried all of their flavors yet, but this one rocked! I loved, loved, loved all the shredded coconut in the bar. It gave it such a great texture. I will definitely buy more of these. I hope they keep them stocked around here now that I finally found them.
In vacuum news, I think we found the one we’re going to get – Nick was looking up reviews while I was getting dinner ready, so we should hopefully have a new one this weekend.
The second TGIF for today is:
2. Thank Goodness I Freeze…
I had no plans for dinner tonight. I was hoping we would have had enough ravioli leftover for dinner tonight, but the package only had a little over 2 servings and we had barely stretched it to 3 servings.
What to do when grocery shopping won’t happen until the next day and you don’t want to eat out?
Look in your freezer.
I found a bag with 2 servings of my Super Bowl Chili Mac, so I heated that up in a pot on the stove and roasted some broccoli in the oven.
I love roasted broccoli. I love that the edges get kind of crispy.
I also love having stuff in the freezer for when I have no plans and no food! At least we still had a homemade meal.
I’ve got one load of laundry going and still have a full hamper. I have a feeling this rainy weekend will be filled with laundry :)
Do you like grocery shopping/planning?
I usually do and love my early Saturday morning shopping trips, but there are some weeks that I just don’t feel like planning out meals or making my list.
