When my Mom, sister and I were at Trader Joe’s over the weekend, this granola caught my eye at the check out. I first saw the word coffee and was like “sold!” I love granola but hate how many points I have to spend for so little food. Some serving sizes can be as little as 1/4 cup for 8-10 points! So I was thrilled that this serving size was 3/4 of a cup for 8 points. I added just 1/4 cup to the top of my parfait and it was delicious. You definitely taste the coffee! Check it out next time you go to TJ’s.
It was another busy day at work, but I sound like a broken record when I say that. One of my bosses is going to be out of the office tomorrow so I had to get a bunch of stuff done and couldn’t walk with my sister and her friend. I did manage to eat my lunch though at a decent time, although at my desk – I did put my dictaphone headphones on so no one bothered me for a full 30 minutes. Nice.
I bought some tomatoes over the weekend on the $1 rack and made my first batch of Baja fresh salsa – one of the very first recipes I ever did on this blog back in September of 2008! I used rotisserie chicken to make a taco type salad. Romaine, carrots, cucumber, the chicken, 100 calorie pack of guacamole and my baja fresh salsa as a dressing. Looks like a hot mess, but it was so good.
Worked a bit late again and by the time I got home, I wasn’t all that hungry and I had no desire to be in my kitchen longer than I had to. I just wanted to lay on the couch and catch up on The Voice. More rotisserie chicken to the rescue! I made buffalo chicken tacos – um, why have I not made these before?! I fried them up in a bit of grapeseed oil, and while the hot sauce bottle kind of got away from me on that first squeeze, I didn’t mind the messy plate. Thanks Hannah for taking the picture for me.
So here is the book that Roman chewed up. I’ve never ruined a library book before, can I just buy them a replacement copy? Maripat you would probably have the answer to this question! I told my friend Christina that I’d mail her this book when I am done with it, as long as she didn’t mind the chewed up cover 😛
Our temps haven’t been too bad, but still a bit chilly in the morning. I am ready to see some sun though, but happy that it’s light out by the time I get home.
I am working night secretary tonight, so I am going to spend the rest of my train ride taking a nap. I can pretty much take a nap anywhere, at any time. #itsagift 😀
Make it a great day!
