Well hello there, normal blogging. Thanks to everyone who commented yesterday – you all made me feel so special! Seriously!
I headed back to New Jersey yesterday after my spontaneous trip home to see my Mom.
I know, Mom! I’m sorry. No more pictures while driving.
Anyway, my visit home couldn’t have gone without a trip to Wegman’s.
I used to go to Wegman’s when I still lived at home with my Mom, but I’ve recently heard that they are stepping their game up. Like, Whole Foods style.
I started with the pictures before I even got in the door.
I had heard about the craft your own 6-pack and honestly, I couldn’t pass it up. Especially with all of the pumpkin and Oktoberfest options.
I’d say that the organic grass fed beef for $5.49 a pound was my #1 find, but then I came across these.
Would you believe me if I told you I left with none? Well, I did! As all of you know, it’s usually a sprinkle massacre, so I practiced self control on this one.
However, I did not practice any self control on the two kinds of pumpkin roll that my Mom had.
I prefer mine with more cake and less cream cheese, how about you?
/ end fatty rant.
We enjoyed one last meal together (breakfast) before I hit the road on Sunday. I ended up almost polishing off a jar of peanut butter so of course she told me to take it “for my oats”.
She knows me too well.
Last night, Joe and I enjoyed a few of the 6-pack beers with our take out. It has been a massive cheat weekend for me with little exercise, but I did put my Wegman’s find to good use today.
I also had an acorn squash and turnip that needed to be cooked.
I got the idea to stuff the squash being that there is a big hole in the center from cutting out the seeds. What could be more perfect?
I finished it off with avocado, nonfat greek yogurt, and a blurry iPhone photo. It was a bit messy and annoying to eat but it was so delicious. It’s amazing how as soon as turns Fall, all my body craves is squash, chili, and comfort foods.
Well, I have some programming to do for clients, so ciao for now!
