It's Friday. And I made it through the week. Not that I shouldn't have made it through. But some weeks are, uh, longer than others, ya know?
Would you believe there aren't any plans for the weekend? Tomorrow is a special day, though...it's my dad's birthday! Happy Birthday Dad! (Even though you don't read my blog...tell him I said HB, would ya mom?)
I admit, I like not having plans for the weekend. I'm such a homebody.
So...do you ever run errands with a friend? Every now and then I will run to Trader Joe's with a friend...or Costco. It's way more fun than going by yourself.
Today my friend and I went to TJ's. Have you ever had their frozen green beans? Oh my goodness...another friend turned me on to them a few months back and we've been eating them regularly ever since. They are so good. I mean, ya know, for frozen vegetables. A little butter and salt and pepper and they are the perfect quick and healthy side dish.
Then another friend told me about TJ's coffee a while back, Trader Joe's Dark. You grind the beans yourself, either there or at home. I do it there...it just seems easier to me. It's tasty. And only $5 for a medium canister. We are not coffee snobs...I typically buy what's on sale, or a Costco brand, or when I'm at TJ's, TJ's Dark. I keep my options open.
Hmmm...what else did I buy? Lots of salad, cucumbers, zucchini, ground beef, apples...we'll have pasta sometime this weekend and probably a stir fry. Oh, yeah, I bought brown rice and whole wheat pasta, too. I don't know what it is but I am having a hard time making permanent healthy changes in our diet. I go in spurts. Then I return to old habits. I wish I could figure out healthier ways of cooking and just have them come naturally. I guess it takes time...
Oh! And don't forget...I'm going to be having a giveaway soon to celebrate 1000 posts. Probably sometime next week at the rate I'm going. But don't worry...I really think you'll find it was worth the wait.
