When I could enter the words: Trader Joe’s into my GPS and it would come up saying there is one within 1.1 miles of where I live. This means the world to a girl that hasn’t lived within 800 miles of one her whole life.
Please note the cashier is looking at me wondering why in the world I am having my picture taken. Hello, I had to document Brooke’s first trip to TJs, we will probably go thousands of times together over the next 30 years (we changed the rules and she won’t be able to move out until she is 30) so today was a big day.
We loaded up on produce, chocolate for billy and most importantly kettle corn and raisin walnut apple bread bars. They are like bagels but 48 times better, I think these will be my new pre-race or long run food.
Lunch was salad topped with California salad leftovers, yogurt and a pear. For those of you wanting the recipe it is really simple. Cook penne noodles and let them cool, cook corn (fresh) and let cool and mix it with cut up ham, cut up raw baby carrots, olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic salt to taste. My weird taste buds made me add in grapes too.
Because I am hungrier than I have ever been in my entire life I needed a cereal suicide after my salad.
This morning my MIL and I made our way over to the gym again to walk (she ran) and do some weights. I think Brooke loves the sound of the treadmill because it reminds her of being in the womb and all of our great times running together.
Brooke fell asleep a little while ago so I typed this up and I am on my way to my bed (air mattress) to take a glorious nap.
Favorite find at Trader Joe’s or any other grocery store lately?
Do you have a favorite cereal suicide combination?
When you are tired during the day would you rather take a nap, watch some tv, read a book or just sit and stare at the wall?
