Just Snackin’


Hi pretties! The day so far has been a dream. After my last post I made some breakfast. I wanted to try the Blueberry Oikos, but when I opened it I found a small patch of mold! Ewww. So I switched gears and chose Vanilla Oikos instead. Here it is mixed with FiberOne and Krema Natural p.b.:

Doesn't a half cup of FiberOne look like a ton?

The vanilla flavor wasn’t as strong as I would have liked, but it was still tasty. Of the Oikos I tried, I’d say honey is the most delicious and decadent, and the plain is something I would like to eat every single day!

MamaJ and I got ready and headed out for the day. First, we hit up Starbucks, where I got a small (I forget what size they call it) coffee with one squirt sugar free cinnamon dolce syrup and an inch or so of steamed soy milk. MamaJ got a mint tea and whole grain bagel (yes, I snagged a bite or two). When we hit the road we were headed to the most incredible grocery store (better than Whole Foods…maybe), but we got a phone call from Matty Rich. He wanted to go to LensCrafters to get prescription sunglasses, so we altered our plans. Let’s just say that though I may be a 4.0 student, I can be very blonde sometimes. I got us lost…kinda. Yeah, I’ve only lived in this area for 18 years now? Oops!

Eventually we made it to LensCrafters, MamaJ went inside and I waited in the car. Twenty minutes later, she and broskie came out and then we returned to our original plans. This afternoon we went to the most bizarre, yet awesome, grocery store you’ve ever seen: Jungle Jim’s International Market.Β I’ve grown up visiting this grocery store often, and it is what I would call the amusement park of grocery stores. I’m going to do a separate post dedicated to it later, but for now I’ll give you a sneak peek as to how crazy it is:

You have no idea...

While we were shopping I realized I hadn’t eaten for a while. I got a little shaky and grabbed an old favorite:

Eating in the store

I grew up on these. These biscuits are a bit sweet, a bit mealy,Β and completely delicious. I had two while we finished our trip. When we got home I needed some fruit in my life:

I should say that I was drinking Black Stone Riesling while snackin’. Then I had two stuffed grape leaves, which are divine:

Can you see my baby puppy in the background?

Has anyone made stuffed grape leaves before? I’d love to know how to make them. Anyway, dinner tonight is going to be yummy. I’m not telling you yet what it is…muhaha.

Tomorrow I have an audition for a Long John Silver’s commercial! Isn’t that crazy? I’ve never eaten there, but I will definitely pretend that I love it if I have to. This brings me to something I’ve been wondering about allΒ a y’all: What is the one type of fast food you’d eat in a heartbeat if you didn’t care about health? I’ve never really liked fast food, but I’d say anything involving fries. I’ve never had a taste for meat, so burgers and chicken are out. I’d also go for Cinnabon or any kind of French toast sticks πŸ™‚

I’m off to go help with dinner! Much love.

Ciao for now,

    Good luck in your LJS try out – arrrrr matey πŸ˜‰ I’m not a big fan of fast food, it all makes me stomach hurt – I’m no fun with that answer 😦

  4. Ahoy! You’ll kill. You should wear a sailor suit and walk in do the Carlton and singing “What Should You Do With a Drunken Sailor?”! That, among many other reasons, is why I will never be in a commercial.

    I love those little wafer cracker cookies too. I always grab a pack at IKEA and its half gone by the time we check out.

    And haha, I grew up with Digestive cookies too! Last year, my mom stocked me up every month with a ton of Digestive cookies, it was crazy! Haha!

  7. Digestive cookies? There’s one I have never heard of. And fast food – I think I’d go for a burger. It’s been so long since I last had fast food – years.

    Ummmmm…I still have the occasional fast food meal. Sometimes you just have to – like on vacation and you don’t want to eat another bar or crap like that.

    I LOVE chic-fil-a and every once in a while I have to get a plain biscuit from Arby’s, they are so good. Oh and Krispy Kreme – I would eat a creme-filled donut from there every day if I could (but only the fresh ones)!
