Hey hey, it’s What I ate Wednesday!
Hey hey, it’s What I did Thursday!
Thursdays are always fun, maybe that will be the next blog sensation?
Anyway, what an eventful Thursday! I am pooped. So much running around today I love my days off!
I really wanted to go to Whole Food’s today but then I remember that I am broke as a joke.
So, I cashed a few checks, gathered up some change, and said, “hey, I can pay those bills next week!” (you probably think I am joking but I am so serious.)
Might not be much change but it turned into $23!
Whole Food’s/Trader Joe’s:
Two favorite flavors right thurr.
Yummy finds from the salad bar!
Money saving tip: When at the Whole Food’s Salad Bar, be sure to load up on the good stuff. For example, I never get lettuce! I usually take my salads to-go so I can add whatever greens I have at home instead of paying $7.99/lbs for lettuce. Same goes with tomatoes! They add a lot of weight.
Raw pumpkin seeds!
After our Whole Food’s/Trader Joe’s adventure we were STARVING.
We spotted a sushi place we have not noticed before and decided to stop in and check it out. Scott and I are HUGE fans of sushi, we eat it just about every week! We love trying out new places for a good roll or two. (or three?)
We started off with some miso soup:
Which happened to be cooked PERFECT! Crunchy green onions on top were awesome!
Next I ordered the veggie lunch combo which included the sweet potato roll and the asparagus roll:
Sweet potato rolls are always a win for me
I also ordered a another roll because I was HUNGRY! This roll was called Veggie Heaven: Mushroom and avocado in a (vegan) tempura roll with ginger sauce. Topped with sweet soy and spicy mayo.
This is totally vegan! This fancy roll originally came with a spicy mayo, which I forgot to ask to not have, but since he knew I was vegan he gave me this yummy carrot and onion sweet sauce that was so creamy! Best roll ever. The mushroom and avocado literally melt in your mouth, delicious!
I ate 19 pieces of sushi.
I honestly think this was the most impressive sushi restaurant I have been too. Not to mention how incredibly friendly and helpful the staff were! That seems to be hard to find these days. We will diffidently be going to Sumo Sushi & Seafood next time we are in the area.
After this lovely afternoon of foodie goodness I met up with my bestie for a long nature walk:
Then sat at the Starbucks sipping on some green tea with lemon aid for quite some time.
Heather had the lovely idea of making some banana soft serve at my house. I’ve actually never made this before! I couldn’t wait to try it out in the Vitamix:
We looked up a few recipes but then decided that it would be best to make our own.
& What flavor would we choose?
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, duhh!
- 2 1/2 frozen bananas, chopped
- 1 glob PB
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips
Blend the nanerz until creamy. Add the PB and choco chips than blend for another minute.
After this, she helped my bake some cookies for the market on Sunday. We made Espresso Chip Oatmeal Cookies, yum! I wonder how they will sell.
