Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
I hope you all had a fun St. Patrick’s day! I completely forgot to wear green today, but luckily nobody pinched me! I had a pretty busy day at work which made the day fly by. I’m happy tomorrow is Wednesday because I’m pretty excited about the weekend and can’t wait for it to get here. 3 more days!
For breakfast today I enjoyed a Fage 2% with honey, I’m not the biggest honey fan, so I used less then a 1/4 of what was given to me. But I did mix my usual granola in there.
Around 11 someone at work offered me some Sunchips, apparently someone must have tried to purchase it from the vending machine but it got stuck so when she went to buy them she got 2 bags. I haven’t had Sunchips in probably a year, so I was not about to turn down a free bag.
For lunch I had an old favorite, peanut butter and raspberry preserves on Arnolds Double Fiber bread.
For dinner I didn’t know what I wanted, I had bought some irish soda bread while food shopping over the weekend so I knew that needed to be a part of my meal tonight. While I was deciding I decided to snack on something green outside in the sunshine. It was of course another one of my favorite pickles.
I got a couple questions about what kind of pickles they are. First off these are by far the freshest pickles in the world. They are Ba-Tampte Half Sour Pickles, but the website doesn’t give much information. I know they are from New York and I also know it’s not always common to find them so bright green they do start to look more pickle-y after a few days (but they typically don’t last long in my house) it’s like biting into a fresh cucumber. I wish I could invite all you pickle lovers to my house and let you sample them. Last summer I went through so many jars, and always offered them to my friends, everyone has agreed these are the best pickles ever. When they are this fresh they don’t taste sour or even half sour at all, that flavor comes on once the pickles sit around for a few days. I do know they have no preservatives and have only all natural ingredients. The sodium content is high but no higher then other pickles on the market as far as I can tell. They are in the refrigerated section of the store, hope that will help some of you find it!
Finally I decided to have “green” eggs, roasted potatoes, and my irish soda bread serving as the toast. I figured potatoes and anything green would make it in an Irish meal. I’ve never liked corned beef so even though I couldn’t have had it since I gave up meat for Lent, I really wasn’t missing it at all.
Scrambled eggs with a handful of spinach.
Toasted Irish soda bread with a small amount of butter.
And roasted potatoes.
All together now.
Andrew didn’t go into his second job today because his allergies are driving him nuts so together we watched some TV and I snacked on a little more then a serving on Fro yo (that I never wound up having last night) with some chocolate chips and less that a tablespoon of pb. Such a great combo!
Well I’m off to read and go to bed. Hope you all had a fun night, and I hope some of you enjoyed some green beers for me!
