Happy Tuesday! It is the millionth rainy day in a row here in Boston, but I am feelin’ good. I honestly have not felt this good in a very long time, and despite an 11 hour work day, a 3 mile run, a neighborhood watch meeting, and some cooking, I still have a ton of energy. Ummmm thank you Amazing Grass. I bought a tub of the Chocolate SuperFood today, and I am looking forward to an Amazing Meal smoothie in the morning with coconut water, blueberries, spinach, and frozen pineapple. I am obsessed!

For tonight’s post, I thought I would share some just for fun food photos. I am getting sleepy and will be dreaming of all of the lovely things I will be eating this week
Over the weekend and despite the fact she was sick, my mom gave me a bunch of groceries to bring home, including chicken stock and lean chicken breasts, which we don’t normally stock but were happy to have on hand after a busy weekend. I tossed loads of chopped garlic, half a white onion, a can of green chiles, chopped tomatoes, black beans, frozen TJ’s pepper blend, and a bunch of spices into a pot and simmered all afternoon as I worked. The hub was very surprised when he arrived home soaking wet and cold. Soup can really make the day better, especially when paired with TJ’s garlic naan and a Beck’s Dark.
On my run home from work, I stopped at the grocery store and picked up some fun stuff. Blueberries were on sale 4 for $5. Holy smoothies this week! I also grabbed more almond milk and some Vita Tops to try. I read so much about them on other blogs, that I was craving them this morning! I haven’t tried them yet, but I am sure I will let you know.
We also picked up some Beck’s Dark. After writing my post on Vienna, I was craving a good dark beer and thinking of good times at the pubs and the Hofbrauhaus in Munich. I am ready for some travel soon.
Speaking of which, we booked tickets to San Francisco for Labor Day weekend! My first trip to CA! I am so excited and now we just need to decide, out of 4 nights, how many do we spend in the city and how many in Napa? I welcome suggestions lovely foodie readers.
I am off to do some reading and then watching the Real Housewives of NJ Reunion. You can take a girl out of Jersey. . .
