Feta = Happiness
Greek yogurt, Greek cheese — I would be lost without my Mediterranean friends! Really, I would be lost without their food products. Now pass me some spanakopita, will you?
For a snack today, I had some cherries. I debated whether I should eat these fresh, or freeze them for Chocolate Cherry Bomb-making purposes. I opted for fresh.
For lunch, I had a hodgepodge salad, as they are my specialty. I am impressed that my spell check has approved “hodgepodge” as an actual word. I thought it was one of those made-up words like metrosexual or Brangelina.
Do you see that giant hunk of feta? It is taunting me. I wish it still existed.
This salad contained a bed of baby spinach, topped with bean salad, half a sliced tomato, some sliced cucumber, some red pepper, and, most importantly, feta cheese.
For dessert, I had two squares of peppermint dark chocolate. Very refreshing!
Today is another busy day at work. 72.5 to go, not that I am counting! But I am actually going to take a bit of a break during this lunch and go outside and see what there is to see. I am guessing heat and humidity with a side of smog for good measure.
I have decided not to slash my miscellaneous spending budget from $116.50 to $60. What am I, nuts? Girlfriend needs her larabars. Instead, I am going to slash it like I am trying to slash my grocery bill, by 20%. That leaves me with about $90 a week. I can live with that.
I was trying to think of the most expensive thing that regularly appears on my grocery bill and you know what it is? CAT FOOD. The things we do for our angels, eh?
