Mommy Daughter Date

20130309_153013 (1)

It’s rare being able to go out alone with Mum so when we had the chance today, we got froyo at Menchie’s … my treat. They’re having a special where the waffle cone is FREE all March due to March Madness … that’s only THE best part. I can do without all the other stuff. For realz.

Then we went to Whole Foods and spent a good hour there. It’s ridiculous.I want to buy everything.

I’ve prepped ALL my meals for the upcoming week. I know that nutritional value goes down when we do that but it’s SO much better than eating unhealthily.

I hope you are all having an amazing weekend!

Think Good Thoughts!

Thai House & Menchie’s

Ever hate having a WHOLE post written out and then stupid computer goes bizerk and shuts down the program.

Thanks … thanks a lot.

Friday, while at work, my sissy texted me this …

Ah yes … she went to Trader Joe’s without me!! Rude! She said only got veggies and wine and waiting for me to get the good stuff. Um .. that is the good stuff! But I guess cookie butter and whatnot is good too …

But whatever … I got to go to lunch with Rose that day so all that “I’m stuck at work” went away.

We both got the Chicken Pad See Ewe [chicken or pork stir-fried with rice noodle, egg, broccoli, and bean sprouts in sweet brown sauce] | $10.95

And since we ordered from the Lunch Menu, all you can eat appetizer buffet. I got the Hot & Sour soup, some sushi, veggie eggroll, curry potato fried dumpling, and spring roll.

Knowing we were going to get dessert after, we didn’t fill ourselves up and actually had a lot of leftovers.

But in reality … to me, they weren’t up to par with any other Thai food places I’ve been to. I think they were only busy because it was lunch hour. And maybe those people came because they were thinking it would be fast service. It wasn’t. The service was pretty bad (they came out with the wrong dishes for us at first so that took a while) and the food wasn’t that amazing. Maybe we came on an off day but I wouldn’t come here again.

Enter dessert …

When I stepped foot into the store I knew I would love it … they were so organized and bright and happy! I got the red velvet, cake batter, and irish mint. I’m a less-fro-yo-more-topping type and oh em gee … they had the most toppings ever! All properly labeled and stored in their own pretty container! Rose is the opposite. More fro-yo less topping. She wasn’t a fan of some of the flavors she picked. In the end I loved it.

The spoons themselves were enough to make me happy. Just look how cute they are!

Since I’ve been home, I haven’t had many adventures and I thought that this would be it for my weekend.

Boy was I wrong …
