good eats by megan

Hey y’all! Oh my today has been quite a Tuesday, let me tell ya. I have been so busy getting school stuff organized for tomorrow and I just feel like the organization process will never end! I feel like I will never be just as organized as I would like to be, but I am going to try!

Last night I experienced a bit of a mishap involving a school, but I got it straightened out thankfully. The only bummer is that I had to add a class. This was not something I was expecting and it most definitely was not an easy feat considering it was the first day of classes and most were full!!! Grr. Let’s just say I acted pretty dramatically over this last night. It all turned out fine though because I managed to get an online (!!!) Hotel, Restaurant, Tourism class. It is an elective so I am praying it will turn out interesting since I do not know anything about HRT. I know God has it under control though, what a relief!

Yesterday before all of the drama took place I snacked on one of my new Larabar flavors…Tropical Fruit Tart.

IMG_7775Please go buy this, y’all! To me it tasted just like a pina colada. Also, I liked how it was crumbly like a cookie. Well, mine was crumbly! I don’t know if it was supposed to be, but I liked it that way! There were chunks of dried fruit in there and I liked that too. Yay Larabar!! This is a sure winner in my book.

And just a few moments ago I enjoyed another delicious snack. Today I chose Stonyfield Farm Organic Oikos Vanilla Greek Yogurt


and I topped it with Welch’s Dried Fruit Snacks in Tropical Sensation (pineapple, mango, and papaya).

IMG_7781I love these little snack bags of dried fruit. This was actually the first time I tried it as a topping…and oh my gosh! It was so yummy! I mean look at it…


IMG_7783I like things sweet, so the tartness of the Greek yogurt and the sweetness of the dried fruit was perfection! For me atleast πŸ™‚ I am so grateful that Stonyfield sent me all of those coupons over the weekend…I can’t wait to stock up on Oikos and other Stonyfield goodies! This snack made me one happy girl, that’s for sure!

Alright, I am off to tackle some more organizing. Wish me luck! Happy Tuesday!!

Hey y’all! How’s Tuesday going so far? Mine’s going well…nothing too exciting! I went to the doctor and stopped in Whole Foods for just fruit…and left with so much more, haha. Oh well. Who can pass up new flavor Larabars (Peanut Butter & Jelly, German Chocolate Cake, Tropical Fruit Tart) and oatmeal cookies and fresh vegetable kabobs and white chocolate raspberry gelato and italian vegetable quiche and Glenny’s brownies (that the Whole Foods down here JUST got in stock!)?? Well I certainly couldn’t pass any of those goodies up, that’s for sure. There may or may not have been other items that snuck into my cart, too πŸ˜‰ Sometimes I enjoy shopping at Whole Foods more than I enjoy shopping at J.Crew. Oh, and I already tried the PB & J Larabar…in love.

I’m still reading the book of Daniel and still loving it. I love starting my day off with God’s word. I like filling my cup up with scripture early in the morning. That way it’s with me all day and my worries aren’t as important anymore.

I had also gone to Whole Foods for some special ingredients for Sunday dinner. I was going to cook Salmon & Eggplant Curry from the newest issue of Eating Well. But, being me, I forgot to look for the fish sauce. I could go back to Whole Foods later this week and pick it up, but I am deciding to stay out of there for a few weeks based on what I spent today, oops! I know salmon is definitely on the menu for Sunday no matter what so I found 2 different replacement recipes. One is Salmon & Escarole with Lemon-Tarragon Butter from Eating Well and the second is Salmon with Puff Pastry and Pesto courtesy of Giada De Laurentiis. I adore Giada to peices, by the way.Β  I am leaning toward the Salmon & Escarole dish because it seems interesting to bake salmon in foil packets (atleast it’s seems interesting to moi), but I have to take a vote with the family tonight.

It’s so hot today. Even inside. I have been drinking water like it’s nobody’s business. I would really love a tall glass of sweet tea though.

My friend’s mama makes the best sweet tea. It’s the only sweet tea I drink, and it would be so delicious right now.

On the shopping front:

LuvCharlie is offering 25% off your entire purchase with the coupon code: summersteal. The offer expires August 31.

LuvCharlie is such a fun online boutique! So, enjoy shopping πŸ™‚ In fact my eye is on this denim skirt. It looks very similar to a denim ruffle skirt I wore when I was a little girl in the 80’s. I wouldn’t take it off. And when I did take it off it was just so it could be washed and put right back on. The only difference is that my skirt had a hot pink elastic waistband. It was pretty sassy, if I do say so myself.

I hope y’all enjoy the rest of your Tuesday! It’s 3:30…which means I have a date with Giada on the Food Network!
