Lemonade = Yum

Organic pear lemonade.

Shrimp and 'Taters.

Sent via BlackBerry by AT&T

Potatoes cooked in tin foil with sea salt, garlic, and ground pepper. Way overseasoned. Broiled shrimp... unfortunately, also overseasoned. I had a bland meal the other day and I really didn't want that to happen again. I learned my lesson. I ate all my veggies like a good girl, though, and the organic cocktail sauce was just as good as the regular stuff.

It was almost 5pm and all I had consumed the entire day was one iced latte. To say I was hungry would be an understatement. I had this cookie, which I bought today at Earth Fare. It was really dry, so I put some whipped cream on top (not pictured). It was pretty good for a chocolate fix, but overall, I'm going to have to say I wouldn't buy it again. It was 360 calories for the entire thing, 12 grams of fat, and was still a little dry. Not to mention it cost $2 just for one. Maybe if I have serious chocolate cravings next time I PMS!

Grocery Shopping

That right there is over $80 worth of groceries from Earth Fare and Trader Joe's.

Edit: I went back and checked my bank statements. Those groceries actually cost over $100.

Iced Vanilla Latte.

This is a vanilla iced latte from the coffee shop at Border's. The guy working there was a nice enough to let me read the label on the vanilla syrup before ordering. It was safe. I also had a vanilla latte yesterday from Starbucks, but I forgot to get a picture. I had called them ahead of time to confirm that I could drink it.
