Typically, I am one of those people who gets a gift card and spends it the very next day. But, lately, not so much. I am stockpiling them for no good reason.
For some reason, today’s beautiful weather inspired me to go shopping. So, all of a sudden, it felt like my plethora of gift cards were burning a hole in my pocket. They just wanted me to spend them, so I went to the Derby Street Shoppes to get my shop on.
I spent a solid two hours shopping at all of my favorite stores, including Williams-Sonoma.
J.Crew, Lululemon, and a couple of others.
And”¦ I didn’t buy a single thing. Lame, huh? All of that work for nothing!! At least I got out of the house, right?
For lunch today, I ate the last of my leftover take-out from Lime Leaf. Damn, it was so delicious– even three days later. I love that place.
Lunch also included a Peanut Butter & Banana Smoothie. In the mix:
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 cup Almond Breeze
- 2 tbsp peanut butter
- 1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
I was famished when I returned home from shopping, so I immediately opened the fridge, chugged down the rest of a bottle of POM juice, and munched on some raw veggies. It was an emergency (hunger) situation.
Then, I threw together a salad with all sorts of veggies and leftovers from the fridge.
Once I finished my salad, I made a broiled banana with brown sugar, cinnamon, and scoop of Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel Sauce, which melted all over the banana slices. Holy yum!
To make the broiled banana, I cut it in half lengthwise, placed it cut side up on a baking sheet, sprinkled it with brown sugar, and broiled it in the oven until the sugar started to bubble and the banana began to brown (about 3-5 minutes). Then, I removed it from the oven, sprinkled on some cinnamon, and added the chocolate sauce. OMG, delicious!!! This might become my new go-to sweet treat.
Off to relax. Enjoy the evening, guys!
