A gassy experience…

Ha… okay, not THAT gas, but the over-priced, stinky, liquid kind (STOP- get your mind out of the gutter!). I dropped my oldest sister off at the airport and my plan was to go to the mall, which is over there, and then pick up some things at the store. But first of all, I needed some gas, so I stopped off, pre-paid, put the nozzle in the gas tank, and it came out! Squirting all over me! EW! So I filled up what I had paid for and went home to scrub myself off and change. So I probably wasted some more gas driving home, AND drive back, but I felt like this was a good day for errands and I should get to it before I was stormed on!

I ex-nayed the mall went to the grocery store. Of course, I had my coupons, which is good because I saved $4.05 on a total of 20 items! Go, me! It adds up, I’ll tell ya. I feel a bit better about this, because I probably wasted some money on the gas that spewed all over me…grrr! Anyway, I found some new things I’ve never bought or seen before, so I feel good that I’m expanding my tastes, too.

Here they are:

groceries

Ta-da! I’ve been drinking Emergen-C powder as a supplement into water, which also makes me feel spiffy and I’m trying to find a go-to flavor, so I picked up 4 new ones: Pink Lemonade, Tangerine, Mixed Berry and Black Cherry. I got some Cranberry Stuffing Tofurkey slices I’m excited to try. In the plastic bags I got some bulk items to try: dark chocolate coffee beans (Wow! Those babies are tasty and I’m sure will get ya zippy!), dried dates, and dried apricots. I got 2 So Delicious Cinnamon Bun-flavored soy yogurts because I’ve heard they’re stellar. They were all out of these on the shelf, but I asked and it was my lucky day! The guy who helped me said they were the only flavor that flew off the shelf! (Imagine! Yogurt, flying!) Organic Valley Soymilk enters the mix, as do 2 Wallaby yogurts: Pineapple Coconut and Strawberry Guava. I got some Spinach Dal, an Amy’s Burrito, an Amy’s Tamale Verde meal, my beloved tempeh, Chocolate Pecan Pie Luna, PB&J Dipped Mojo bar, and lastly, some Apricot & Nut (and Coconut!) Nature’s Path granola bars. *Phew!* What an accomplished feeling! Now I have some tasty snacks and food-stuff to take to work, or eat anytime, that I’m enthusiastic to eat!

I’m not vegan, but since starting at work, I’m contemplating this idea. I’ve tried it before, but wasn’t doing it very health-fully, so I added dairy, eggs, etc, so I wasn’t so rigid and restrictive, which is what happened. So, gradually, I suppose. I prefer the taste of soymilk, though, so I’ve stuck with those, but lately I’ve been eating a lot of cottage cheese and yogurt, so those may be the last to go!

Anyway, another night of dog-sitting and then work tomorrow, mid-day! I’ve gotta refund my gas money and grocery bill! Have a super Monday (not the case of the Mondays! <- what movie, anyone?!) and the rest of your week 🙂

  1. That’s so odd that gas squirted right onto your clothes! Luckily there was no fire in site!

    Good luck on transitioning going back to veganism. I’m not a vegan myself, but have tried on and off. I just can’t get myself away from ice cream/gelato, Greek yogurt (my new recent addiction), and aged cheese. Anyway, what I’m trying to say is if you have any Q’s, I’ll be glad to help. There are also some really good blogs to reach on veganism. Here are a few of my favorites, if you haven’t checked them out yet:

    Veg*n Cooking and Other Random Musings (on blogspot)
    The Tropical Vegan (on blogspot)
    Happy Herbivore

    RE: the URL
    The only way I know is to go to “My Account”
    Click on “Edit Profile”
    and go from there.
    Sorry can’t be much of a help
