Grocery Shopping When Hungry

Hope you’re staying dry this week (depending on where you live).  The storms just won’t give up the past few days around here.  Looking on the bright side, I’m thankful for the warmer weather at least.

Normally I would present the usual WIAW (What I Ate Wednesday) post today, but a) I failed at photographing all my meals and snacks yesterday and b) my food wasn’t all that exciting for the most part…

Take a look at this bad boy…. words cannot express how fantastic this sandwich was!


I got out of work a little early yesterday afternoon and swung by good old Trader Joe’s real quick before I had to pick up Mac.  I confess the primary reason was to purchase more Espresso Pillows because I’m addicted, but of course, I found my slightly-hungry self wandering through the aisles.  Before I knew it, I had both arms full.

It looked (and tasted) an awful lot like this guy.  I’m not sure where or when I became obsessed with pretzel buns but they make me happy.  Plain and simple.

Pretzel bun, roasted turkey breast, extra sharp white cheddar, and spicy mustard.

Besides the pretzel bun, of course, the extra sharp white cheddar cheese absolutely makes the sandwich, in my opinion.

Who ever said grocery shopping while hungry was a bad thing?  😉

    Sounds great, pretzel buns make an ordinary sandwich a little more exciting !
