Move that body: 2.5-mile walk with my boys
I was tired. I was hungry. And I still had to make it through a “quick” trip to Walmart.
A pregnant woman’s nightmare, I tell you.
I tried hinting to Mark that we should get a hot pretzel at the Subway inside the store but Mark is sort of oblivious to those sorts of things. Unless you say, “Mark, buy me a hot pretzel,” he’ll go along his merry way, eying Swiffers and four-packs of Guinness.
I might have been up a cranky creek without a paddle but I lucked out: It was sample day at Walmart. You should have seen me
attack exuberantly approach the nice older gentleman manning the Starkist station. He probably thought I hadn’t eaten in days the way I took the souffle cup of the Starkist Sensations Sesame Ginger Shrimp off the table.
Too bad (for me) – it tasted like doody, and I threw it away immediately.
Good (for me) – around the corner was another older person. A woman, this time, and she was serving up Johnsonville Brat Patties on a sandwich thin. Now that’s what I’m talking about! I shared the bite with Mark and felt much better. Not only had I found an interesting new product but I no longer felt like making Mark walk home for not getting me a pretzel.The only thing that would have made it better was some mustard … and a beer.
In honor of my
Walmart buffet new product tasting, I thought I’d share with you some new (to me, at least) things I’ve eaten recently.
We have Skinny Cow Heavenly Crisp (PB flavor), Breakstones Cottage Cheese Doubles (pineapple), Thomas Bagel Thins (cinnamon raisin) and Ronzoni Garden Delight rotini.
All of them get a BIG thumbs up for me but I’m particularly in love with the Skinny Cow crisp – it really is heavenly – and the cottage cheese double. Both would be great snacks to pack in a lunch for work.
Have you tried a new food lately?
