I gave you fair warning that this post was likely coming… time to get back on track post work/vacation travels!
San Francisco was SOOOO fun and I am still working on posts about the Foodbuzz Festival and my trip in general, but I’m still a little delirious from the cross country trip so those will come another day.
I will share one major highlight – I got to meet Tyler Florence!!
He was SO nice and charming in person, and even gave me a copy of his new cookbook.
And signed it!
Don’t worry Tyler. I will!
Anyway, I ended up taking a redeye back on Monday night, which was a lot less painful than I was expecting. I have mentioned it before, but I am an excellent plane sleeper, so I fell asleep no problem for almost the entire flight and liked that I didn’t have to give up a whole day to get back to DC. That said, it was a really strange experience to have dinner in San Francisco Monday evening and then be at my desk Tuesday morning. You can probably guess which one I preferred! =)
After working all day yesterday, I made one stop right after work before going home – Whole Foods! My fridge was so bare – I didn’t even have one fruit or veggie in the house. I had to get on that stat.
I ended up spending $44, and got everything I need for some good meals for the week. First up, the produce.
- Mixed Greens
- Honeycrisp Apples
- Vidalia Onion
- Holiday Grapes
The most delicious grapes ever.
- SO Delicious Coffee Creamer
- Whole Wheat Pasta
- Low-Fat Cottage Cheese
- New-to-Me Greek Yogurt
- Skim Milk
- Nasoya Lite Tofu (free with coupon)
- Babybel Light
- Laughing Cow Light Garlic Herb
- Corn Tortillas
- Swiss Cheese
Not too shabby for $44! Here’s what I came up with for a meal plan:
|Tuesday||Egg + Cheese on Ezekiel Toast||Subway Veggie Delite w/Baked Chips||Starbucks Americano w/skim milk||Cheese Quesadilla w/scallions + salad|
|Wednesday||Pumpkin Steel Cut Oatmeal w/Cottage Cheese||Big salad w/sardines, wasa crackers, + babybel cheese, grapes||Banana + Greek Yogurt||Cheesy Butternut Squash Bake|
|Thursday||English Muffin w/sunbutter + banana||Leftover Cheesy Butternut Squash Bake w/salad||Cottage cheese w/frozen berries||Loaded Baked Potato|
|Friday||Pumpkin Oatmeal w/Cottage Cheese||Leftover Cheesy Butternut Squash Bake w/salad||Greek Yogurt w/banana||Out with friends|
Feels good to be back with a plan! Now I just need to get back on Eastern Time and convince myself not to move to San Francisco. We’ll see how that goes.
