I wish I could post that I have been doing AWESOME at portion control and eating healthy and etc…etc…etc.
But honestly, the following pictures are of foods that were received and immediately devoured within days.
These Florida’s Natural nuggets are the best little snack. Each mini packet is 50 calories and they are delicious! Of course it’s all sugar but they are tart and so flavorful.
I love me some butternut squash but I hate losing a finger (who needs a pinky?) every time I cut into one! So when I found out Target sold these precut packages I couldn’t wait to try them!
Too bad the quality of the squash isn’t the same as freshly cutting into one yourself. They were not as sweet and were doughy!
Tiffany was sweet enough to get me this jar of peanut butter from Trader Joe’s! I love how PURE their peanut butter tastes, not too oily or flavorless.
Glenn and I ate the whole jar in 2.5 days.
I got even more Trader Joes goodies when *Natalie sent me this packet! I love their chocolate varieties and these didn’t disappoint. Dark chocolate caramel with sea salt. YES 3 THINGS IN ONE.
*BTW if you want a REAL cooking blog with amazing recipes go check out Natalie’s blog. It’s amazing and she’ll make you want to own an ice-cream machine*
The main object of her package with this beauty. Cookie butter. I’ve been reading about Biscoff spread on many blogs and I caved in and wanted to try it.
Okay, my taste buds exploded with happiness. (Yes, I overreact) It basically tasted like ginger cookies in a creamy form.
Glenn got these at World Market for me! Yes red velvet chocolate TEA.
Other than trying to induce myself into a sugar coma or aim to get diabetes II, I’ve also been eating around Denver.
I met Tiffany at Pho 87. This place is one of the many pho places in Denver and we were starving when we got there.
Shrimp spring roll. Typical flavors but the wrap was a bit sticky. It was messy to eat…Tiffany was grossed out by my facial expressions.
We also got the pork and shrimp dumplings. The wonton dough used was a little too thick but it still tasted good.
Like I said, nothing out of the ordinary.
I ended up NOT getting pho (I know, what was I thinking?!) but got the tofu rice noodle plate instead. It was pretty good. The vegetables ended up having fried tempura pieces mixed with it but there wasn’t enough tofu pieces!
I almost ate the whole thing though…so it was obviously tasty.
As usual, I’ve also hit up Okinawa for sushi.
Seaweed salad: typical. I’m not taking pictures of this ever again by the way.
Okinawa has awesome lunch specials. This tray of 3 rolls were only $12! We got the eel roll, yellowtail roll, and the spicy tuna roll.
Not all sushi tastes the same. I don’t know if it’s the rice vinegar they use or the fact that they don’t make the rolls jumbo with a ton of rice sticking out, but their flavors and fish are always so fresh!
Sashimi lunch combo for I $12!
I’ve eaten delicious things and now I am Trader Joe goodies-less. SIGH.
By the way, have you guys watched American Horror Story?
I didn’t have a chance to watch it while it was on air, but I watched the whole season in like 2 days. It’s from the creators of Nip/Tuck (yes I watched that trash) and Glee. It’s a guilty pleasure, on par with True Blood so I loved it.
Anyways for those who watch it…
Did you know that Rooney Mara (Girl with the dragon tattoo) and Kate Mara (on American Horror Story) are sisters?! I know they have the same last name but I am…not observant.
I had no idea! And I also have no idea why I care…
Anyways, hope you guys are having a great week back at work!
Do you guys still have goodies left over from the holiday season?
