A piece of advice my friends, do not go to the grocery store hungry!  It will only lead to unnecessary impulse buys.  Like these Snyder’s Jalapeno pretzel pieces.


We totally don’t need these, but they were calling out my name as I was meandering down the aisle!  And don’t you worry, I got the southern BBQ flavor as well.  These may come in handy during our road trip this weekend at least.  I would also like to add that they were on sale :)

I went to the grocery store to get fish for dinner tonight, and ended up coming home with:

  • Cherries
  • Pears
  • Peaches
  • Two pints of ice cream (bogo!)
  • Yogurt
  • Pretzel pieces
  • Eggs
  • Reece’s Pieces

Every single item was on sale though!  And I give myself a pat on the back for everything but the pretzels and Reece’s Pieces.  I will never pass up ice cream that is buy one get one free :)

Because we are going away for a long weekend, I wanted to use up a few things hanging around in our fridge.  I was proud of myself for using the last of a lot of items.

I used the last of our smoked salmon and sunflower bread.


And I used the last of our goat cheese, tomatoes and capers.


The tomatoes and capers are hiding beneath the salmon.

I also head a pear on the side.


With a little bit of AB on top.  I wasn’t sure if I would like AB on pear, so I left the other half as is.

And of course I had to have a small handful of jalapeno pretzel pieces!


I think it was a pretty well balanced lunch.


I did end up liking the AB on the pear.  I think AB goes with anything really?

As I was about to chow down, I realized I needed a napkin, so I got up to get one.  On my way back to the couch (yes, I eat lunch on  the couch, not at the table) I noticed someone had stolen my seat!


Nylah – Hmmm… maybe if I look the other way and pretend like I don’t see her I’ll get to keep this spot.

Me –  Nice try sista. Scoot!

At least she didn’t steal my food!  I’d prefer a stolen seat over stolen food :)

What did I bring for a snack today?


The last Dannon yogurt (I got Stonyfield today).

How many of you find that you make impulse buys when you go to the grocery store hungry?
