It took me a while to actually think of what I wanted this blog to be titled. So, today I have changed it, and I think it is a much better representation of who I am and what I do. Our new name is Jessica's Garden, but our address will stay the same, because really, a lot of this blog is, just because I feel like it. It makes sense, (to me) even though there is no garden to speak of right now. There will be in a few months, and then the pieces will all fit.
Breakfast was almost a repeat of yesterday. 1/2 of a juicy pink grapefruit, Dorset cereal, but with skim milk that will be expiring any day.
I had a meeting at 10am today, and really didn't know how long it would go. At about 9:45 I ate most of this Luna Bar. I wasn't hungry, but didn't want the stomach growling to start at 10:30 and have no relief until noon.
This is the first time I've had this flavour. It was good. I wasn't really expecting chocolate, but still kind of was expecting it....if that makes sense. I don't know that I'd buy this again, only because it didn't satisfy any cravings that I would have, however, it would be really tasty on a hot summer day, rather than being drug down by chocolate. I'm on the fence.
It's really rare that I treat myself to takeout for lunch more than once a week. I used to do it a lot more. Today, I was feeling bored at work, needed a pick me up, so I stopped in at the Veitnamese restaurant down the road to pick up lunch for a myself and a coworker. I had broiled chicken with lemongrass on vermicelli noodles, and a salad. I also got an order of rice paper rolls with shrimp and vegetables, but only ate one. The Shepherd will be happy to eat the other one tonight. She had a similar dish, but pork, and a real spring roll instead of the rice paper rolls.
I love this lunch, and haven't had it in months and months. I have a feeling today is going to be a big food day.
For the longest time I've said that I'm not going to be a Costco shopper...but a big part of me has been wanting to shop at Costco SO BADLY! Soo...today I gave in. I have no willpower today. I went to Costco, paid my $55 and loved every minute of it. Look at all the great stuff I bought! I didn't buy any produce, as the fridge is full and I'm away for part of the weekend. At Costco I sampled...spring rolls, perogies...a little bear paw...granola bar...I think that's it.
Mahi Mahi is one of my favorite fish and you just can't get it here. But I found it at Costco! So, dinner was blackened Mahi Mahi and greek salad. To make the Cajun seasoning, I mix 1tsp salt, 1tbsp oregano, 1tbsp paprika, 1tbsp cayenne pepper and 1tbsp black pepper. Dinner was mouth watering, literally, I drooled a bit on the first bite of fish.
I then found this half cookie in The Shepherds cookie box...and then I ate another whole one. All of my 'healthy' treats are good, but nothing beats a real, sugary treat. Oatmeal chocolate chip. Yum.
