Hey everyone! 🙂 I hope that all of you has had as wonderful of a day as I have! The Man didn’t have to work today for once and I had the best company ever to help out with the shopping today + a hot lunch date whoop whoop!
Lucy Dog had a superfab day too…. check out her outside squirrel chasing action! And yes, she has a pink jacket, and yes, my boyfriend thinks I am certifiable I am quite sure haha 😉
Scopin’ things out
Oooo I have spotted something!
K maybe if I play it cool that squirrel will come back….
Oh I’m gonna get it this time, I just know it…
Hahaha I love that dog. 🙂
So back to today and my hot lunch date! The Man and I decided to go to a place down the street called Jimmy’s – which is just a small “hole in the wall” that is always overrun with regulars (my parents being some of them!) and serves some really good food.
The Man opted for breakfast for lunch & got the healthiest thing on the menu (yea right 😉 )
Biscuits n’ gravy
Eggs over easy + hash browns
I knew what I wanted before I even got there – they have the best grilled chicken salads that come in a bowl the size of my head! Served w/ some balsamic vinagrette this was the perfect lunch 🙂
Then we made a quick stop-off at World Market so I could get some more crack spicy pumpkin soup mix. I ❤ this stuff!
The Man decided that he hadn’t completed all his necessary food groups today (grease, carbs, sugar?? 😉 ) and requested we purchase this guy
Yep, that’s how he rolls!
After World Market it was time for Tom Leonard’s (slightly OBSESSED with this place if you can’t tell haha) – where the plan was to see what was fresh and base the meals this week around that… I am loving this method these days! We picked up
- beets (I still can’t believe I turned him into a beet lov-ah!)
- fresh salsa
- 4.5lbs chicken breast for $7 (again!)
They have some of the best produce/meats/foods and best prices that Tom Leonards! Love it.
I also stopped off at Kroger for some basics to round out the menu for the week — I’m pretty excited about it and can’t wait to show you peeps what we have planned! 🙂 Let’s just say that there may be some white chicken chili in the near future!
Tonight’s plans are to relax and enjoy some brews/football – check out the assortment we have (excited!)
And whip up a quick go-to dinner that I haven’t had in for-evah!!
And just enjoy hanging out in the warmth of our house!
I have one of these plugged in and the whole place smells like Christmas 🙂
I probably won’t be seein’ you bloggies til’ tomorrow (it’s gonna be a “no computer” kinda night!) BUT I am really excited about tomorrow because …..
I am meeting up with another food blogger that many of you probably know and read!!! We are meetin’ up for some healthy lunch and I couldn’t be more excited 🙂
You’ll just have to check back to see who it is!!!
Hope all you friends have a lovely rest of the day 🙂
