Happy WIAW! I still haven’t quite adjusted to this new hour change, so my caffeine consumption is up…by a lot. I just can’t seem to get myself going in the morning! This new increase in caffeine has lead me to a lost love however. Details below! So the other night Ninja and I went out with our church group to dinner and then hit up Coffee Bean for some coffee and tea. Now, I’m a big time Starbucks lover. I’ve never gotten anything from Coffee Bean that I even remotely thought was worth the money. Until now.
This would be the Strawberry Cream Green Tea Latte. Holy smokes, my world has been rocked people. Have you ever had the Strawberries N’ Cream frapp from Starbucks? Cause that’s what this is, only it’s made from tea, it’s hot, and it isn’t loaded with sugar. Ummm I’m obsessed. A tea that literally tastes like strawberries?! Good lord I need it. Right now. People, go and order this. It’s freaking amazing!
Now that you all know I have an unhealthy addiction to caffeine, let’s move on to some eats!
Eggs eggs and more eggs. You’d swear I was pregnant with all the crazy ways I am craving eggs. (Which I’m not pregnant, by the way, so don’t ask!) Anyway I’ve been having eggs almost every morning. Either scrambled, runny, or tossed into a bagel. Good thing I’m the only one who eats eggs consistently in our house or we would have to buy a 12 pack of them every few days!
veggie springs rolls with carrot fries and dipping sauce
Finally some veggies!! I literally get so excited when I see these babies on sale at Fresh and Easy. I bought up 2 packs, which should last me for my work lunches this week. Although the sauce is SUPER spicy, so I literally use like 1tsp of it total. I’m a total spice wimp by the way. I can’t handle any spice. Which is funny, considering my daddy used to grow peppers in his yard and we would go back there and he’d just start popping them in his mouth and hiccupping. Then he’d say, “Oh Ya! Those are ready!”
I’d like to take this moment to mourn the last two pieces of my pumpkin carrot bread. He was a tasty bread, and was always there for me to curb a craving. But now he’s gone. Good thing I have another can of pumpkin on the shelf!
I need fries for dinner. Maybe it was starch I wanted, or maybe it was salt. Either way, I fixed that problem asap. Is it just me or do homemade fries taste SO much better than any from a restaurant? Except Red Robin. That place makes some bomb fries!
Favorite place to get fries from?
