But…today was a Monday where I learned quite a few great things and had a few disappointments…sigh!
We went to Trader Joe’s today…armed with a list…there were certain Trader Joe’s things that I was looking for…their Crunchy Salad Mix, their SW Salad Mix, mini multicolored carrots, Cowboy Veggie Burgers, organic Trader Joe’s Fritos, Green Dragon Hot Sauce and fresh eucalyptus….I had grand plans of popping vase after vase of fresh sweet smelling eucalyptus in every room.
Apparently our Trader Joe’s doesn’t stock fresh eucalyptus so that plan got bagged. No mini multicolored carrots, either…just big giant ones…sigh…but there were sweet surprises…fresh English peas, tiny baby zucchini, Vanilla Meringues that Den grabbed for our cart…in less than two seconds…and a few boxes of chocolates that Lucy is delivering to her vet techs tomorrow. And lots of Trader Joe’s frozen veg mixes…I use them all of the time!
So…after Trader Joe’s we stopped at a place called Zoe’s Kitchen..healthy Mediterranean foods and lots of bowls…bowls of quinoa and cauliflower rice…and you can add other stuff to each bowl. So…I thought I was getting a bowl…because what I ordered said BOWL. But when we got home there was no bowl in sight. There was just an assortment of stuff without a bowl…for me…so I ate my bowlless soulless lunch bowl free. Very sad!
Don’t these look like bowls to you? I ordered the Power Grains Bowl! Den ordered the Cauliflower Rice Bowl and he got a bowl! What I really wanted was a Falafel Bowl but they said there wasn’t any such thing. However…after we paid we saw a huge sign with three different Falafel Bowls…I can’t even begin to tell you what happened…I guess it was a case of no bowls for me! I even asked the man at the counter if I had to order cucumbers and tomatoes separately and he said…everything comes in your bowl! What bowl? Seriously it was like a comedy of errors…heck…it was a comedy of errors!
Books! Finally! Books…
OMG…I finished these by Sunday…both were sweet and sad and funny! Go Ask Fannie was heartwarming…I loved it!
New books…I am mostly positive these came from NetGalley…
And this was in Sunday’s NYT…have you read any of these?
Ok…off to rest and think about why my bowl lacked its bowl…I am obsessing over this…sorry…but I just don’t get it!
