Hello. Hope everyone is having a good Saturday. It’s absolutely gorgeous here in Atlanta; it’s sunny and 70 degrees. I met my friend Erin for lunch at Metro Fresh. I’ve only been there twice, but every time, I always think that I should go more often. The food is freshly made and the menu changes daily. Today I had some sort of chicken with artichoke salad and a southwestern salad. After lunch, we drove over to Atlantic Station to go shopping. I had a 30% off coupon for Gap, Banana Republic and Old Navy that was good for this weekend only. I didn’t really get much – a sweater at the Gap and then some pants for Jason at Old Navy but it was still a fun afternoon. Erin has a one and a half year old so we don’t get to see each other that often anymore.
I’m probably going to just chill with the Murphster tonight. I went out last night and didn’t get to sleep until around 2 am. My days of doing that two nights in a row are most definitely over. I had a lot of fun though. First I went to The Nook with some co-workers for a little while. This restaurant is apparently known for their “totchos” (not sweet potato ones, unfortunately). We tried the chicken ones. I didn’t really like them. I guess I am a tater tot purist; there was too much crap on them! We also shared the Mediterranean platter. I liked them hummus but not the baba ghanoush. Eggplant is just one of those foods that I don’t really like. Save for this grilled eggplant parmesan from TJs, for some reason. After the Nook, we met up with Jason and went to The Bookhouse where two of my friends were celebrating their birthdays. I ate some boiled peanuts and some fries. It was not a healthy night to say the least. Oh well. I have a habit of dwelling on non-healthy nights like that, but I’m trying not to. Yes, I drank a lot and yes, I ate a bunch of fried stuff, but in the grand scheme of things, if it doesn’t happen that often, it shouldn’t matter. Right?
So, I have been trying to locate Pineapple Chobani yogurt forever and cannot find it. I emailed the lovely Shari at Chobani who offered to send me some. Score!
I brought the pineapple one to work yesterday and forgot to eat it. Then I forgot to take it home! D’oh. So, for a snack today, I wanted to try another flavor that I’d never had before, so I went with honey. I topped it with some Bear Naked Fit granola.
First thing that I noticed about this flavor was that the honey was mixed in. I liked that. I’m not a big fruit on the bottom fan (I know the others are fruit on the bottom though). The flavor was a bit strong though. I think it would go well in a smoothie or something, but was a little too honey-ish by itself. I enjoyed it, but don’t think that this will be my favorite flavor. Now I have to wait til Monday to try the pineapple. Thanks for sending these, Chobani!
