I hope everyone has had a good day--I know that this afternoon has been quite exciting with my news from Foodie View and all! :)
I'll back up though and tell you about the rest of my afternoon. I was planning on making a salad at lunch, but decided to go out with my friend Stella instead. We went to Beef O'Brady's and got some delicious chicken wings. This is Stella's lunch, she got the sweet jalapeno flavor.
I ordered the garlic wings and wasn't expecting them to come out dry, but they were very good nonetheless.
After a nice productive afternoon at work, I came home and got to talk with my cousin Michelle in Ireland on Skype! I've only used Skype once before and I must say, it's really neat to be able to talk to far-away family & friends!!
For dinner I made my shrimp-avocado spinach salad. I used some of the new Penzey's Tuscan Sunset spice along with balsamic vinaigrette.
I will definitely be making this salad combination again, as well as using more spices in fresh vegetables.For dessert I busted out the truffles from Carytown! Left to right the flavors are: cinnamon latte, dark chocolate raspberry & chocolate mousse.
I had doubts about the cinnamon latte, but I must say that was my favorite! I was expecting to L-O-V-E the dark chocolate raspberry, but there was something about it that didn't really punch me in the tastebuds. I'm not sure it was rich or dark enough for my liking.
To wash down the chocolatey goodness, I had a cup of tea with almond milk.
I'm going to get ready for bed now, the husband has to wake up at an extremely ungodly hour (4am??). I'm going to listen to my hypnosis CD and get to sleep--I must remember to tell you about that tomorrow! Have a good night!
