The Horror!

by Courtney on September 14, 2012

Oh my gosh…I seriously had no idea that so many people use ACV…and totally love it?! I’m so excited to try out some of your different ideas for using it in beverages, and I promise that I’ll be sure to share what I like and what I don’t. I think one of the first ones I’m going to attempt is Brittany’s idea, which she tells me tastes like liquid apple pie…

We’ll see, Brittany. We’ll see!

As far as food goes today, there hasn’t been much exciting happening over here. Around 12:30 this afternoon, I broke for a small lunch, which included another snack plate. I’ll tell ya, I can’t get enough of these things the past couple days.


Today’s plate included the rest of my deli turkey with a slice of provolone and mustard rolled up, celery + peanut butter, and a white nectarine. Lots of variety and good stuff happening there.

Immediately after lunch I also ended up eating two oatmeal raisin chocolate chunk cookies. I made a batch of these yesterday to share with a couple of our friends who came over to help Jay do some heavy lifting and clean up the back yard. Good help deserves good food as a thank you in my book. Winking smile

Later this afternoon, I had to make a quick run to Target…thanks to some sinus and allergy action happening between Jay and I this week (is anyone going crazy with allergy stuff?!?), we ran out of tissues…the horror!

(Fun Fact: I use a LOT of tissues)

So I went to snag some of those, some gum (also out – the horror!) and some apple juice to attempt that whole liquid apple pie thing mentioned above. Would you believe that I actually made it out of Target with the ONLY three things on my list AND spent less than $10.00?!?


I swear, that deserves a reward or something, right?

While I was out and about I also ended up eating this Blueberry Swirl Odwalla bar that I had stashed in the car (yes, I stash food in my car and purse for emergencies). I’d actually tried one of these before (it was in my swag bag from HLS) and it’s really good.


Once I got home, I was greeted with a nice little surprise waiting on my doorstep…


A VERY generous Love Drop from my friends at Love Grown Foods. I’ll tell ya…that team over there is quite the crew. I love everything about them, their granola, and their approach to business.


They basically rock. Smile

Later this evening, Jay and I have plans to meet up with some friends for drinks and dinner, but other than that, who knows? Either way, I’m looking forward to the weekend!

Question for the Evening:

What are you most looking forward to this weekend??

In reference to your ACV issues, I tried so hard to drink it every morning with apple juice, but it gave me serious stomach cramps for like and hour afterwards. After two months of hoping it would go away, I discovered GNC’s ACV pills. I just take two in the morning and avoid the stomachache and gagging sensation : ) Plus my skin has really responded to the pills much better than the liquid too.

I would not believe that yo made it out of Target without seeing the receipt. When we were trying to sell our house, we would go to the Super T around the corner during showings. I swear we spent at least $50 every time. We had to the pull the house becuase we couldn’t afford the trips (ha ha!)

This weekend I am most looking forward to NOT setting an alarm. I have been working or in class for 10 straight days…I am spent!

I’m curious to hear if drinking the ACV that way really tastes like apple pie. If so, I’m game! :-)

That snack plate looks great! Good luck with the ACV too :)
My school has a four day weekend because of Rosh Hashanah so that is something to look forward to (besides to homework). But I’m excited to spend time with family!


12 Shannon September 14, 2012 at 8:48 pm

I’m mostly working on homework and catching up on work that I missed from being sick on Tuesday. Not really a fun weekend. I want to see a movie but I don’t know of anything good that’s out this weekend. :(


13 kim@hungryhealthygirl September 14, 2012 at 9:02 pm

Great job on your Target trip….I don’t know how you did it! This weekend will be full of running the kids from place to place, but should fun all the same. Have a great weekend!

14 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More September 14, 2012 at 9:23 pm

It must have been a good day for Target runs because I went in and left with the only thing on my list (well, technically I forgot one thing on my list but there wasn’t anything extra)!

And this weekend I’m looking forward to some time with the family tomorrow and lots of NASM studying. I really want to get a good grasp on all of this!

I have been wondering about apple cider vinegar lately too…I have tried it a couple of times and just haven’t been able to handle that strong taste. I am interested to see what you find out!

Damn near miraculous to go to Target and only buy what you need. I didn’t do tooooo bad today. Just one teeny tiny nail polish I definitely didn’t need. Oh well!
