a lovely day off

Today was Veteran’s Day so I had the day off. I had arranged to have lunch with the girls from my previous job who I’ve actually missed rather much. It was good to see them and catch up. Hopefully we’ll get to do so again soon when some of the missing can make it.

After lunch I made my way over to the new Trader Joe’s in Princeton. Oh, lordy. It’s a good thing it’s not closer or I would be there all the time. There were just so many things I wanted to try, it was very hard to restrain myself. Especially with tomorrow being the Husband’s birthday. So for dinner tonight I picked up a refrigerated chicken parm (which he likes) and brussell sprouts au gratin (which we were not crazy about). I also got some of their version of oreo’s, dark chocolate marshmallow creams, as well as mochi in mango and green tea. The mango mochi is just outrageously good, like worth-the-trip good. We haven’t tried the green tea yet, but both other snacks got a resounding yummy. As did some of the thinnest lemon cookies. I picked up a chicken pot pie and a sesame chicken noodle bowl to stash in the freezer for emergency meals for the Husband. I got myself a curry bowl, vegan pad thai, and a shrimp ettouffe. I want to start bringing lunch one or two days a week, both for cost and nutritional reasons.
