Soooooooooo. It’s day 21 of me not going to the grocery store! Yay for me! This first post explains why I’m doing this. Here’s the short version: I’m poor.
Tuesday: Tuesdays are supposed to be my day off, but I had too much to do, so I just took a half day off, which was nice too. I went blueberry picking with my precious half day, and yes, the blueberries were for work so maybe it doesn’t really count as a day off, but it was fun so whatevs.
I also happened to be wearing a dress with blueberries all over it! Very random and awesome.
For breakfast I had a toasty jam sandwich and a cupcake. This thing of having cupcakes at the shop all the time is going to kill me, I can see that now.
For lunch I meant to sauté up some of this chickpea-brown rice tempeh, which was fresh from the incubator, but..
…work got in the way and it never happened. What happened instead was that I went to take my sweet crazy cat Sula to vet the check up on a UTI situation the poor dude has (everything’s fine, I just like to get his urine tested now and then to make sure) and, somewhere around 5 PM when we were pulling out of the vet’s, I realized I hadn’t eaten anything but that cupcake and that jamwich all day.
Also, I had to make a left turn to get home from the vet and the way I make left turns is to pull into some place where I can make a right turn, and well, um, the thing is, Taco Shack is directly across from the vet, perfectly placed as a turnaround spot for a terrible driver like me.
I pulled into The Shack and asked Sula if he minded if I gave it another whirl. He really, really did.
But I was really, really hungry. So I got another chimichanga, and hung out in the car with Sula while I waited for it. It was better than last week’s. I liked it. But I think it’s been well-docmented that when it comes to the Shack I pretty much put all my food snobbiness aside, and just revel in the crap.
After blueberry picking I came home and ate the other half of the chimi with some salad, and stayed up until 2 am doing paperwork. Amazing day off. (I am not being sarcastic.)
Somewhere in there I ate a lot of snap peas, too. Just FYI.
