High to the Vee

It’s almost Friiiiddayyyyyyyy!

Gah, I love that feeling.

Especially since there is going be perhaps the best road trip EVA happening on Saturday, which I am obviously not going to give away any secrets too.  Y’all just gots to come back this weekend and see the shenanigans for yourself!  Okay, okay…one hint: let’s just say it involves jousting.  And that’s all I’m sayin’.

Yesterday was an AMAZING food day, but I didn’t take any pictures.  That is really too bad because the day included roasted brussel sprouts + 1 entire cut-up pineapple for dinner last night.  Twas’ amazing.

This morning however, I started out with the ol’ standby: AB+B on Ezekiel bread with coffee.

And sprinkled with cinnamon, of course :).

Then in an attempt to clean out my fridge, the rest of the days eats were the definition of ‘mondo rando’ snackage…

(clockwise from top left: carrots + AB, two pepperjack cheese sticks, Kashi Honey Sunshine cereal, Wallaby Organic Banana Vanilla yogurt + two clementines)

Along with like six cups of tea in a variety of flavors.  I drink lotsa tea.  It’s becoming quite an addiction.

After work, my co-workers/friends and I headed off to this girl’s favorite place…

Awwwww yeahhhhhhh…talk about a salad bar!

I don’t even remember all the thangs I shoved in my plastic container, but I will give it a shot:

  • baby spinach
  • mixed greens
  • cherry tomatoes
  • onion
  • green pepper
  • red pepper
  • 1 hardboiled egg
  • carrots
  • sunflower seeds
  • CRUNCHY PEAS!!!!!!
  • banana peppers
  • 4 kinds of pasta salad
  • wild rice salad
  • TACO DIP!!!!!
  • tortilla chips

I also ate a crab rangoon wonton (donated by Brett), some pineapple and hunk of jalapeno cheddar focaccia (donated by Casey), plus refills of Diet Coke.  It was heartbreakingly good.  I didn’t want it to end. Ever.

I may have also bought $15.52 of groceries I didn’t need.  I got this crazy idea to find all the weirdest foods I could and buy them.  Soon you will see what my wallet hates me for…soon (as in most likely, tomorrow).

When I arrived home after a two-hour Hyvee date with my peeps, I came home to find this…

An Anthropologie-worthy card along with pumpkin ginger cookies, marzipan and tea – all from the gorgeous, creative and fabulous Katharina!  Seriously, if you have not checked out her blog, go! As in now. I swear she could make a lump of high fructose corn syrup, lard and pork rings look appetizing.

On another note…

The folks over at I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter are re-launching their product with no trans fats or hydrogenated oils!  As part of their launch, they sent me a lil’ flip HD camera to record a commercial for their new campaign, Turn the Tub Around, starring the fabulous Megan Mullally.  Even though my video didn’t make the cut (were the rainbow rainboots and black biking shorts too much for you?), you should head over and check it out. Any attempt to make a product healthier for the masses gets my seal of approval :).

And with that, I’m out.  I joined Netflix, and my first movie came: Donnie Darko (starring my husband-to-be Jake Gyllenhaal).  If we are going to get married, the least I can do is see all his movies, right?

Do you like tea?  Are you addicted like I am?  What is your favorite flavor of the moment? Yes. Yes. Candy Cane Lane (decaf mint green tea).

What is your favorite movie starring Jake Gyllenhaal? My favorite movie of all time is The Cutting Edge, Good Will Hunting or Singin’ in the Rain.  My fave Jakey film is October Sky.

This was the place! I’d love a meetup :) Sounds fun. Must involve food of course ;)

Such a cute card! Eeek that marzipan chocolate went straight from the package into my mouth. Not even joking. So good.
