Today was a busy one! After going to the grocery store, we got haircuts, and ate lunch at Panera. I ordered the same thing that I always do. I am a creature of habit, I guess. A Mediterranean veggie sandwich, hold the tomatoes, and a caesar salad, dressing on the side. And a frozen cherry lime-ade to drink. Yum!
For a snack this afternoon, I had a Snickers Peanut Butter Squared. When I first tried these I was mad that there were two little squares instead of one big bar, but I have come to like the squares better. This was I can eat one square and save one for later! I had one square last night and had the other one this afternoon. This peanut buttery squares are so delicious!
Now we’re going to a BBQ at my dad & stepmom’s house. I am bringing Orzo and Spinach Salad. The first time I made it they were like ewww orzo, what’s that? Orzo, is just pasta, my friends, just pasta. So they tried it & love it, and now request that I bring it every time. Hey, it is delicious.
