I know some of you may think I’m a total creeper for asking you to post fun little food diaries every week so everyone [especially moi] can get some gosh darn meal ideas for the week buuuuut….. If my BFF Ryan think’s its fab than I’m 100% OK with continuing on with my weird [pshh! fabulous!] weekly party.
If loving WIAW is wrong I don’t want to be right! <3
Also, if loving my to-go box of Whole Foods hot bar is wrong I refuse to be right.
Man this stuff makes me happy!
Ry Gosling? Check! Food? Check! Friends? Check!
I’m good to go =)
Paul and I had a hot date planned in Raleigh that turned into a date weekend with looooots of good eats. And shopping. Not so much buying… but lots of shopping =)
Lunch + Snacks on the way there:
Taco Bell Mexican Pizza, vegetarian-style, with no meat and extra beans
Target-brand fruit leather pull-aparts [I never leave home without one]
Natural energy drinks to keep us hyper on the road
loooots of water
Dinner in Raleigh-ho!
Sushi-palooza at Mura North Hills
Sushi, Sapporo beers, and sinfully delicious blackberry layered cheesecake
We also walked over to the movie theaters and saw the latest Mission Impossible movie. I kind of loved it! Paul insisted on eating his weight in popcorn and sour patch kids and I stole a few bites of each while watching Tom Cruise dangle from cars, skyscrapers, and other random objects.
Lunch the next morning:
a salmon sandwich from Jason’s Deli. Meh… kind of bland =/
I also scarfed fruit salad, a small chocolate-vanilla soft serve, and lots of water
Dine and Dash! Dinner on ze road:
Whole Foods Hot Bar Amazingness! P and I split a giant veggie-packed salad with field greens, lobster + butternut squash bisque and a slice of key lime pie cheesecake [cheesecake two days in a row? Heav. En.] We were so hyper from the drive that we stayed up until the wee hours in the morning which means…. second dinner! We munched more of out hot bar leftovers including steamed kale, quinoa, green beans with portobello mushrooms, macaroni and cheese, delicious tofu ragu, and scalloped potatoes. I ate 1/2 my box and finished the rest for lunch the following day. I don’t want to know how much that heavy box of YUM cost but it was 100% worth it after all the meals we got out of them. Dearest Whole Foods, I wish you were closer to my house! Move here?
Hookay so… that was like two WIAW posts for the price of one! I’ve hogged enough of the spotlight for the day and now it’s your turn! Show us the meals and snacks you’ve been noshing on lately and help inspire our next meal… or two… our four! The diversity + creativity that you guys link up every Wednesday rocks my world.
