I Caved

by Meghann on July 16, 2010

Yep, I caved and went to the grocery store this afternoon.

I couldn’t take it any longer. My fridge was starting to look very sad.

Truth is, I was bored and grocery shopping is one of my favorite activities in the world. Why wait one more day when i could have all the fun tonight?

A full fridge makes me happy. ๐Ÿ™‚

For a week that flew by, this afternoon seemed to move at snails pace. I was starting to believe the clock was never going to hit 5:00! Why are Friday afternoons so slow?

I had some Fritos and Salsa to help pass the time around 3:00.

I returned from the grocery store after work full of ideas for dinner. Coconut Shrimp? Buffalo Tempeh? Salad? Lasagna? I now had the ingredients to make it all! ๐Ÿ™‚

In the end I decided on grilled italian chicken sausages with rutabaga fries.

The italian sausage was served on a piece of pumpernickel toast with spinach, saurkraut, ketchup and spicy mustard.

The pumpernickel was a nice addition to the sausage and saurkraut. The combination was very reuben-esque. ๐Ÿ™‚

Rutabaga fries. Nom nom nom

It was a dinner Derek was happy to enjoy as well. I think he appreciated the fully stocked fridge when he walked in the the door. ๐Ÿ™‚

After dinner…

Me: “I’m going to bake some cookies.”

Derek: “Which kind?”

Me: “Chocolate Chip”

Derek: “No, I mean which brand?”

Me: “They don’t come from a brand silly, I want to make these from scratch.”

Derek: “Cookies from scratch? Really?”

HA! I guess someone didn’t grow up with homemade cookies? ๐Ÿ˜‰

I was tweeting for a good cookie recipe the other day and Lindsay’s Chocolate Cafe Chocolate Chip Cookies struck me as a ‘must try.’ Rarely do I feel the urge to bake, but tonight I had that urge!

Instead of chocolate chips I broke up this little beauty that had been hiding in my cabinet for far too long.

I also opted for walnuts instead of pecans.

Fresh out of the oven.

The cookies were delicious. They were oaty, chewy and perfect with a scoop of ice cream. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hello weekend!

While I was making cookies Derek was finishing off an entire bottle of wine by himself. Can you say bad week? I’m off to comfort him.

Happy Weekend Everyone!

Good Night!

Break – Fast

This morning a complete stranger poked me with a needle and managed to steal a whole vile blood from my precious veins. How rude! Ok, so technically I did give the complete stranger permission to take the blood in the first place, so it wasnโ€™t really โ€˜stealing,โ€™ but still itโ€™s my blood โ€“ not theirs.  more ยป
