A MAD. HOUSE. up in there…
But I did manage to get myself front row parking.
As soon as I walked in to Trader Joe’s this afternoon, I realized that it was going to be a quick trip. Sometimes I can handle a crowd while shopping, but other times (especially when I’m really just there to browse) I’m about ready to run over anyone and everyone that comes in my way with my cart.
Today was the latter.
After about 20 minutes, I was able to get through just about all of the aisles but probably only saw about 50% of what was in each aisle since they were packed. I managed to snag a few items along the way…
- romaine lettuce
- cocoa powder (almost out, can’t have that!)
- brownie mix (I’ve had it before and I LOVE it)
- Tandoori Naan (excited about this one)
- kettle chips (for the hubby’s lunches)
- peanut butter filled pretzels (‘nuff said)
- marinara sauce (not pictured, bought last minute while waiting in line)
- and last but not least…
Cat cookies. I have a past with cat cookies…and what it basically boils down to is the fact that I should not buy them. Because I can’t control myself around them.
But I did.
And then I snacked on a bazillion of them in the car during my 15 minute drive to Price Chopper to finish up my grocery shopping. Ooops.
Dinner tonight was a simple one, since Jay has a softball game and I’m headed out shortly to go cheer him on.
We have lots of fresh veggies in the house, so I put some of them to use to make a big salad of romaine, cucumbers, garden tomato (almost a whole one), shredded carrots, corn off the cob, red onions, and feta cheese. I drizzled everything with about a few teaspoons of olive oil and some spices. YUM.
I knew I’d need something else, and I also didn’t do a very good job of getting in many fats earlier in the day, so I toasted up half of an English muffin and topped it with lots of peanut butter and raspberry jam.
I’m headed out the door shortly, but before I go, I thought I’d leave you with this great someecard I found on Facebook today.
I figured at least a few of you out there would appreciate it.
