What you missed

Here is the rundown on the things I have done the last day and a half because I know you are dying to know...

One the 4th of July I ate a hotdog in a tortilla.

A beef hotdog slathered in ketchup and mustard.

I also enjoyed a hearty portion of pickled cabbage with apples.

I marinated some thin cut pork chops in olive oil, peaches and balsamic vinegar.

These turned out so well that I ate them without any side dishes. I didn't want anything to distract from the taste.


And after a hectic morning where I got lost and was 45 minutes late to an appointment, I stopped by Whole Foods.

Here is some advice, don't shop at Whole Foods when you are craving fruit because you will end up bringing home this:

Peaches, blackberries, apricots, angelcots, and cherries.

I also treated myself to my favorite cold salad at Whole Foods:

It is a great mixture of orzo with feta cheese, olives, red onion and pine nuts all tossed in a balsamic dressing.

I always get the small container because I usually eat the entire thing.

This is one dish I plan on recreating one of these days...

And I also enjoyed this drink:

I loved this kombucha! It only had a tiny vinegar bite and it was filtered. Instead of having the leave the last bit in the bottle to avoid the 'floaters' on the bottom, I got to enjoy this drink to the last drop.

Happy Tuesday!


  1. I've never tried that salad from Whole Foods! It sounds right up my alley...I'm gonna take a peek.

  2. Angelcots? Interesting... I've never heard of them.

  3. Wow what a brilliant idea, eating a hotdog in a lettuce wrap :) Keeps it a bit healthier and low carb which is always good!!
