I get lost all the time lately. I use my phone’s GPS to navigate from place to place, but I never fail to miss one of Siri’s commands. It makes for some interesting drives. Especially when I see polka-dotted houses. Hello!
My aunt told me that house has been pastel speckled for over 10 years now. Nope, it’s not just Easter themed like I assumed. Wow.
Grammy and I are both really curious about Indian food and have our favorite entrées (chicken tikka masala for her, chicken vindaloo for me). In an effort to branch away from our signature dishes, we ventured out to a highly rated Indian restaurant, Bombay Tandoor Grill.
It was in a super sketchy building and had a ridiculously small buffet, but we gave it a go anyway. I tried everything there was to offer: chicken tikka masala, lentil soup, vegetable pakora, and a couple unpictured items. It was ooookay. As soon as we walked out we both craved chocolate. Typical.
Speaking of cravings, I often get a hankering for iced coffee. Nolan and I picked up some Dunkin’ Donuts for a treat. My aunt/his mom said he could have a Coffee Coolata because it doesn’t have a lot of caffeine. Little did we know, a medium has 660 calories and 69 grams of sugar.
His reaction to the news? Priceless. And yes, he drank it anyway. 30 minutes later he had a hockey game. I imagine he performed like a champion.
Switching gears, how about this healthy option? Using my new Camelbak Relay, I made fruit-infused water with sliced strawberries, oranges, and lemons.
It adds a nice little hint of flavor so it’s not so bland. And to make things extra zippy, I add a bit of seltzer to it. So much more fun than plain water! As far as the pitcher goes, it’s super easy to use and filters water so much faster than other brands I’ve used.
Need an idea for a super simple but delicious salad? Using all Trader Joe’s products, I threw this lunch together.
What you need:
- cruciferous crunch mix (kale, brussels sprouts, cabbage, broccoli)
- jalapeño chicken sausage
- kalamata olives
- french cucumber
- light feta
- light champagne vinaigrette
Chop, slice, drizzle, toss, eat.
Have a lovely day, friends!
