Friday has made it’s arrival, I can’t believe how fast this week went by! love 😛
Next week I’ll be moving over to the new office for a few days, starting to walk through new job responsibilities, which made this week so crazy hectic trying to get things wrapped up…
I decided to take a lunch break out today since the weather is so nice. My friend Tammy and I walked down to Southern Railway Deli to grab some salads to go, love this Friday treat!
Mixed greens, shrimp, feta, tomato, cucumber, mushrooms, roasted red peppers, green peas, slivered almonds
And now we’re about halfway through the day before the weekend is here!
Oh yea, and did I tell you that our friend Brittany, who’s coming with us tonight, just won Miss Virginia United States 2010?! How awesome is that? She is super nice and I couldn’t be happier for her!
I’m also pumped for the first farmer’s market of the season! Fanatic Mom and I are headed over there in the morning (it could be a late night tonight, so probably not toooooo early 😉 ) and I can’t wait to see what they have.
A lil’ side note on Meal Planning 101, I will tell ya’ll that the weeks that I go to the Farmer’s Market I usually wait to see what’s fresh there and then base my menu around those purchases (I usually have an idea of what I will find based on the seasons), filling in the “gaps” with items in the pantry and grocery store purchases in a method similar to my usual weekly process….
Since we like to eat local & fresh, this is definitely a method that works very well for us 🙂
Alright well I’m off to conquer the day, or whatever “they” say…
See everyone for the weekend!!
P.S. Don’t forget that you have until Monday to enter my Cuisinart Smart Stick Hand Blender giveaway 😛
