Sooo, that “funny” package I told you I was picking up yesterday??
It was a free year supply of eggs!
which I used to make a Tofu Veggie Scramble. Apparently the recipe got entered into a contest they were throwing…and it won!
Oh man, life is so funny. Now the real question is – what am I going to do with a free dozen eggs each week?? Better get those recipe ideas crackin’! (pun intended.)
In other news – this may be the luckiest week ever, because not only did I win a free year supply of eggs, but I got to have oats in a jar twice! Wheee!
I was actually pretty sad to see this jar of Roasted Flaxseed Almond Butter run out. I got it in Chicago at Trader Joe’s the last time I was there, and it’s pretty much the best thing ever.
Sorry, I had to…
This pretty much made my sadness disappear!
In the mix:
- 1/3 cup old fashioned oats
- 2/3 cup water
- 1 banana (1/2 sliced in while cooking, 1/2 on top)
- vanilla extract, cinnamon
- Almond butter jar
So.Amazing. Viva OIAJ!
I packed a HUGE Spinach Salad for lunch.
In the mix:
- Baby spinach
- Carrot chips
- Pepper jack cheese cubes
- Sliced almonds
I just cut up a pepper jack cheese stick to make cubes. I HEART cheese cubes in my salads.
Also packed a cup of grapes for 2:00pm snackeage.
Only the snappiest ones made the cut!
So last night I consulted my trusty 1,000 Places to See Before You Die book to see what they had listed for Italy!
I’ve had this book for years and always highlight/date the places that I’ve been to, as I visit them. Such as Las Vegas…viva!
New York City (a couple times!)
New Orleans (miss it soooo much!)
The Iowa State Fair - whoooop!
Hawaii & Denmark
And my beloved Japan!
GUESS what I found when I turned to Italy?!
I had already dog-eared all of Rome and the Amalfi Coast – EXACTLY where Ben and I will be traveling to this Fall!!!
I have NO idea when I did it, but clearly this part of Italy has been on my mind for a loooong time.
I cannot wait!
Oookie, dokie, time to get this Friday morning started! Have a wonderful day everyone!
Have you ever won anything?
When it comes to vacation, are you planner or do you like to fly by the seat of your pants?
