After a week of eating out, I was in desperate need of some fresh veggies and almond butter. Actually I started craving Almond Butter on the plane ride back home last night and the urge to eat it just grew stronger today.
I considered making a nice fresh salad for lunch, but concluded the extra lettuce ‘bulk’ would just get in the way of the crisp, cool vegetables I really wanted to sing my teeth in to. So, instead I made up an assorted platter plate of all my favorites and ate in blissful happiness.
The star of this beautiful plate is the plain old Almond Butter that has had be drooling so.
Oh, Almond Butter, where would my life be without your almondy ways? You are so perfect for dipping any and everything my little mind can come up with.
Highest on top of the priority list for dipping would of course have to be the two large carrots I peeled and cut.
Next to the carrots are the Globe Red Grapes which I had bought without realizing they had seeds. Seeded grapes are no where near as fun to eat. 🙁
Next on the plate a handful of Marys Gone Crackers and the second half of the Red Pear I had in my cereal this morning.
Then Melissa’s Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Date Muffin, Cucumber & a Pickle.
This was my last muffin and I am sad to see them go! Very, Very Yummy!
Finally the last piece of my lunch consisted of Tomato Slices sprinkled with Blue Cheese.
I literally just picked up the tomato slices with my hand and ate them like a pizza. It was heaven.
My lunch was so great and so filling, but the salt water taffy I had missed so much was waiting for me on the counter and I could not resist a piece.
Yep, just as good as I remembered. On the drive back to work I was actually contemplating if it’s possible to stop in Savannah on the way back from North Carolina in June just to pick up more taffy!
And just so you don’t think I starved myself this morning, I did have one one of Ashley’s Homemade Granola Bars as my midmorning snack.
For those of you who ever wondered what its like to run in my shoes, I was featured in Andrea’s Feet on the Street series over at Off Her Cork. Andrea was a great interviewer who asked some pretty intriguing questions of me. Head over there and check it out! While you’re over there check out the rest of Andrea’s blog! She is a super talented and creative blogger herself. 🙂
