And the longest blog post title award goes too…
Not only did I just make up a fake award (anything to win something, right?), but I am also about to share with you an incredibly long, random, and all over the place post. Bear with me as I attempt to put some organization into my thoughts, this past weekend, and what I have to look forward to on this week’s dinner menu.
My weekend began with what every person out there wants to do with their free time: cleaning. I am somewhat of a neat freak. I am sure you never would have predicted that with my type-A personality or anything 😉 I used to be a “clean every weekend” kind of girl. But then I realized that there are a lot of things out there that are far more fun than cleaning. Even still, it had been awhile since my kitchen and bathroom got some attention, so I decided to be productive with my free time. Plus, is there any better feeling than spending the rest of your weekend in a super clean apartment? I just love that! P.S. I was not asked to or compensated for posting this picture. I just genuinely love the Method products and this clementine scent is the bomb.
Luckily, I did not just clean. I also went grocery shopping. And after I finished putting all of my groceries away I thought, “Should one person have THIS much food in their fridge?” Yeah, probably not. But this is real.
You have all of this deliciousness to look forward to over the next month or so.
I also treated myself by breaking down and turning on the air conditioning for the first time this year. I suffered through 80-some degree weather two weekends ago and decided it was not worth it this weekend. Granted my idea of “cool” is having my AC set within the 77-79 range. Enough for me to be comfortable and not sweat, but nothing too crazy 😉
(excellent transition, right?)
A couple of weeks ago I gave you a peek inside my grocery bag after one of my trips to Whole Foods. Y’all seemed to enjoy stalking my food (don’t worry, I am totally fascinated with what others eat, too!), so let’s take a look into my most recent Whole Foods haul.
What’s In My Grocery Bags (#2)
Yuuummmy veggies. Organic peppers, sweet potatoes, and spinach. These containers of spinach were on sale for $4.99 so I obviously bought 2. And yes, I will use it all. In case you forgot, I am green smoothie obsessed.
And rounding out my haul were some staples: quinoa, new-to-me horseradish that I’m planning on using in a recipe soon, salsa, Vega One (I have been wanting to try the Sport version so I bought a small package), “no chicken” soup base, and a new-to-me hummus. P.S. That hummus is faaaantastic. Go buy it.
And finally, while we are on the subject of food, how about a little sneak peak into my dinner meal plan for the week?

Lots of good eats to look forward to, eh? Have a great week everyone!
