Friday Happenings

It's strawberry season in Little Rock.  That means that for the next few months, I will be eating at Trios and Izzy's pretty much every day.

I probably won't be partaking in as many strawberries as in years past, since they are mostly sugar.  They're still really good, though.

I just grabbed a few snacks this morning for breakfast.  Almonds + pumpkin seeds and olives... it's a pretty good breakfast.



At 12:30, we headed to Izzy's for strawberries, and it was PAAACKED.  I have never seen a wait there.  We settled in and ordered.  During strawberry season, they have a seasonal spinach salad that is really good.  I sub avocado for the goat cheese, and today I ate the poppy seed dressing (it's mostly sugar).  I guess I was feeling bad, because I had the wheat rolls too.  They're good, but I felt pretty crappy the rest of the day.



The strawberries were pretty amazing.  All of my coworkers got the strawberry shortcake for dessert, but it's very non-vegan.  I keep bugging the staff to add more vegan items, since I'm there all the time.  I also picked up a bag of the jasmine pearl tea they have.  If you want good loose leaf tea, Izzy's is the place to get it.

I headed to Kroger after lunch and stocked up on a ton of groceries for the next week and a half or so.  I used to complain about not being able to leave Kroger for under 100 bucks, but now it's more like 200.  I try to stretch the groceries and only go every week and a half.  I think the bulk of our expense is all of the fresh produce we buy.  I'm still of the opinion that you should spend good money on quality food.  I'd rather spend my money on that than medicine later.

Tonight was STRAWBERRY CRAFT NIGHT!  The Bernice Garden is having a Strawberry Festival the weekend of Mothers' Day, so my friend Erin invited everyone over to help make strawberry themed crafts.  I gathered a bunch of supplies and came over to make hair accessories.  I have been wanting to make more since I realized how expensive they are on etsy.  I may have gone overboard when shopping for pieces, though.  Oh well.




There are always great snacks at craft night, and I had my fill of bean dip, guac and almond crackers.  I guess I forgot to take a picture of it.

When I got home, I wasn't really hungry after all the snacks, so I had a few whiskey's + seltzer water + lime. This was gooood.  I spent the rest of the night studying flash cards and watching Mad Men.  I could possibly have an addiction to that show.

I have to study all weekend, but I plan on getting a little cooking done too.
