Why I’m soooo lazy this weekend, I haven’t a clue. I wanted to stay in bed longer, much longer, but the thought of browsing through the cookbooks I swooped up from the library yesterday was motivation enough to start my day.
The Conscious Cook instantly grabbed my attention. I settled on a recipe, created a list, and headed to Whole Foods.
Notice the completely botched spelling of bouillon? I have an insanely difficult time spelling/typing that word. I suppose the important thing is that I knew what I meant…
And then someone (I guess that would be me) let me loose in Whole foods, alone in a browsing mood, with no time limit. Eek! $113 later… I had a TON of “cool” finds, but not so sure a week’s worth of food is hiding in these sacks.
The first item in my cart? Abita Strawberry Harvest Lager. It was on display as I entered the store and I couldn’t help myself. I’m a big Purple Haze fan, so I have big hopes for these bottles. Big, hoppy hopes!
My second group of finds came from the international aisle, which a fellow food blogger referred to as the racist aisle (made me laugh, a lot): Black Pearl Sticky Rice, Toasted Coconut Fortune Cookies, and Roasted Seaweed.
Next? CHOCOLATE!! Occasionally I find myself in a super chocolatey mood, the weirder the better. I just can’t get enough. I tossed Dark Chocolate Quinoa and Spicy Chile Dark Chocolate in my cart.
And lastly, a glimpse of some of the only legit purchases of the entire trip. Shiitake Mushrooms for the Conscious Cook recipe I plan on making tonight and a side of Brussels Sprouts. As happy as I am that it’s about free yoga time, I’m even more excited to cook when I return!
Today, I felt like a contestant on Supermarket Sweep, in slow motion, but I had to foot the bill. So really nothing like Supermarket Sweep, I just love the show and felt the need to reference it somehow.
Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!!
