This week was a long tough week. I worked a lot of overtime, but when I left work yesterday it still looked like a bomb had gone off in my office.
The highlight of the week? Yesterday afternoon two of my coworkers and I snuck out of work when my boss wasn't looking and drove to Marble Slab Creamery in Chinook Mall. I actually tried something different this time. I highly recommend the Cheesecake Ice Cream.
Last week at the market I bought some edible flowers. The lady I bought them from suggested in addition to using them in salad to try them in a sandwich or on a pizza. I have done none of those things and they are still in my fridge.
This morning at the market I bought a bag of borage flowers. I have seen these included in recipes for Pimms. This afternoon I made myself a Pimms with Borage flowers. It didn't taste any different, but it was pretty.
In my second Vegas post I mentioned that I am not crazy about buffets. You'll be happy to hear that I have eaten 4 meals at buffet restaurants this week.
Calgarians, the Community Natural Foods store by Chinook is selling bags of peeled frozen organic bananas for $2.00. Perfect for baking or smoothies.
I went to Shoppers Drug Mart this morning because they were having a sale on paper towel (I know! My life could not be more exciting!). They had Thai Kitchen soups on 5 for $3.00. I grabbed 5 but when the cashier was ringing them thru, they were showing up as their original price of $1.20. I asked her about the sale so she sent someone to check it out. While we were waiting she told me that if the display showed they were on sale, I'd get the soups for a penny each. I laughed, assuming it was a joke. Sure enough, the display had the sale price and the cashier really did charge me $0.05 for all 5 soups. SCORE!
