I have to say that I enjoyed your comments on my last post but my grandmother loved them. I know I’ve mentioned this before but she reads my blog every day! When I got home from my run this morning she had just read the “Surprise Visit” post and said that it made her a little teary eyed!
Speaking of my grandmother reading the blog, she also pays her bills online, has a Nook and reads my Twitter feed. Pretty cool, huh? Let’s get her commenting on PBR! 😉
And because she reads my blog every day, I arrived at her house to find the fridge stocked with this…
Greek yogurt and fresh fruit galore!
Breakfast after my run this morning was vanilla Greek yogurt with bananas, raspberries, blueberries and peaches.
I had to work for a few hours this morning but we broke for lunch and a trip to Sam’s this afternoon.
We had lunch at McAllister’s Deli. I ordered the veggie pita – tomato, lettuce, roasted red peppers,green peppers, cucumbers and provolone. It was just okay. The oatmeal raisin cookie the size of my hand I had for dessert more than made up for it though!
And then it was off to Sam’s Club for a shopping extravaganza. Sam’s is pretty much one of my grandmother’s favorite places to go. She had a list of things to stock up on and I was happy to keep her company! (And add a few things to the cart!)
Today’s stellar deals included 2.5 pounds of organic, fair-trade French roast coffee for $16, 96 tampons for $9, giant bags of Stacy’s Pita Chips for $5, new kitchen rugs for $10 and 150 loads worth of laundry detergent for $10.
That place is trouble!
We were both in need of a pick me so we stopped by Starbucks on the way home.
Mema loves Frappuccinos! I had another Soy Awake Tea Latte despite the fact that it was 98 degrees outside.
I cooked dinner tonight. My grandmother picked up a rotisserie chicken yesterday so I brainstormed ways to use it and decided on a simple pasta dish. I got to work on my creation.
I put together a simple salad.
Mixed greens, strawberries, pecans, dried cranberries, blue cheese and honey balsamic vinaigrette.
And my pasta creation featured rigatoni with chicken, asparagus, grape tomatoes, mushrooms, onions and garlic. I used Alouette garlic herb cheese and a little chicken broth as my sauce. It was delicious!
We were done eating and had the kitchen clean by 7:45. I’m usually not even starting dinner until then. It was great! I’ve just been vegging on the couch tonight, working on the blog, watching the Braves and chatting with Mema. There was also an ice cream break thrown in there.
Vanilla ice cream with chocolate syrup and melted White Chocolate Wonderful peanut butter (I finally picked some up after your suggestions that I try it – so good!). It kind of tasted like a Reese’s Cup on ice cream. Mmm….and don’t judge me for double desserts today. It was awesome! 😎
Off to read in bed. Finishing The Hunger Games tonight.
I’m trying to get a long run in tomorrow morning. 8-9 miles – wish me luck! What are you doing this weekend? Any fun plans or good workouts planned?
