Humid. Sticky. Ew. Ew. Ew. I am simultaneously melting and expanding… I don’t mind the heat at all, but the humidity kills me. I swear, it seeps into my pores and just stays there. There are probably at least five pounds’ worth of fluid retention on me right now, and I am not liking it.
But don’t think that stopped me from trekking all over town. Oh, no. In fact, on my lunchtime trek, I encountered something which would make many bloggers squeal with glee:
New Trader Joe’s opening on Monday! I’m not a big fan of Trader Joe’s, but rest assured, I will check it out anyway. ;)
I was more excited about my actual destination on this walk:
Yes, I went back. I decided I should just stop being such a moron and keep the damn thing, but assembling it myself is probably not the smartest choice… lest I make a mistake and only discover it under fifty feet of water. That wouldn’t be very good, would it?…
That’s more like it. :D
In assembling the above, I came across an adorable polyploidy mushroom.
There seems to be some color missing, so it was fetus carrots to the rescue…
Well. Also because I had to use up the carrots, like, last week. I tried a new flavor hommus:
If you know me at all, you know that I hate tomatoes. I hate tomatoes far more than I love mushrooms, which is why I was hesitant to try this. But I actually hate tomatoes because of their seeds, which isn’t a factor here… and I really liked this flavor!
Random: remember when I said that salad croutons make me uncomfortable because of what “they” say? Observe:
Oh, do shut up.
Now I am going to share some recent finds. You will notice that none of these things are presented in liquefied form, and that would be because I never actually wound up going to the dentist, because he had to attend a funeral. But since his secretary called my home phone and not my cell phone, I left work early anyway. I wound up going to the supermarket with my mom; that isn’t actually when I got the aforementioned finds, but I did get these:
Sea salt, banana extract, cinnamon extract. Ohhh, the possibilities!!
Anyway, back to what I was saying. Find #1:
I didn’t like it as much as the chocolate hazelnut butter… in terms of drizzle-ability, anyway.
Before I get into this, can I get some photography help?! The first picture is too yellow; the second is too blue. I am apparently not very good at this whole lighting thing. Anyway, it’s a Dr. Praeger’s meatless All American burger, and I was too lazy to photograph the box, which is unfortunate since the picture on the website is of the southwest burger. In any case, it’s been quite a few years since I’ve had a burger, but it was kind of scary how similar this tastes to real meat. It was kind of dry, but that could be because I left it in the oven for too long.
Because this post is already longer than it has any right to be, I am going to save the verbal vomit… which I really shouldn’t do, for my own sake, but whatever. And there may or may not be a giveaway of sorts within the next couple of days…
