Shop, Eat, Repeat!

Hey Hey Hey!

Happy Monday party peoples!

Week-In-Review-Button-Final

When I started thinking about what I did last week so I could share with Meghan’s
Week in Review linkup, I noticed a little trend…

Monday:

TJ Maxx Dress

The man-friend seriously is as obsessed with TJ Maxx as I am! But this time, instead of making a bee-line for the food stuffs (we did that later of course) he had other plans…he bought me a dress to wear to Blend! ๐Ÿ˜€

Calypso Cafe

My FIRST Caribbean food experience at Calypso Cafe…and it was ahhhhmazing!
I ordered the mustard greens (Heaven), spiced sweet potatoes, black beans, and coconut cornbread muffins (I DIE!) while the man-friend went with the pulled BBQ chicken, rice, and beans.

Tuesday:

Peanut Butter & Animal Crackers

Store brands are where’s it’s AT! Especially when you can find peanut butter jars the size of your face and animal alphabet CRACKERS (not cookies) that don’t have any sketchy ingredients!

Peanut Butter & Coconut Muffin

C’mon, I know I’m not the only one who plays with my food! Peanut butter with animal alphabet crackers and a Nicole’sย blueberry surprise muffin topped with coconut yogurt “frosting”

Wednesday:

Cereal & VeggiesDid somebody say sale?! It’s not my fault…Melissa made me do it! Plus, weekly bulk purchases from Sam’s…think I got enough greens? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Breakfast Wrap Cereal & KabochaStrange eats midweek:ย Cranberry Goat Cheese Wrap and Quaker Oatmeal Squares topped with cold roasted kabocha and healthy chocolate sauce.

Thursday:

Cereal & DishesYeah, yeah, yeah, so I went BACK to Kroger and bought MORE cereal…but um can we say BEST EFFIN’ DISHES IN THE WORRRRRRLD?!?!
Those came from Big Lots by the way! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Egg & Cheese Yogurt & Cereal

Two things I’ve been LIVING off of this week…cheese and egg toaster sandwiches and cereal (by the spoonful, bowlful, and handful!)

Friday:

Baby Shopping

I may not be ready to have children of my own, but you better BELIEVE I’ll go crazy buying pink stuff for my soon-to-be-mama bestie!

Ruby Tuesday SaladMet previously mentioned bestie and OTHER bestie for dinner at Ruby Tuesday…that would be my salad before and AFTER I added some gorgonzola cheese (that I may or may not have brought from home! ;))

Saturday:

Dollar Store ShoppingDollar Store shopping with the man-friend…sorry guys, I bought neither the flashy feathery flamingo PEN?! or the sugar coma in a chocolate-covered cup…but I found both to be pretty amusing! ๐Ÿ˜‰

And you know what else amuses me?

And creating a recipe for this week’s #MMAZ ingredient!

Peanut Sesame Coleslaw 1

Say hello to my little friend coleslaw! ๐Ÿ˜‰

When I started brainstorming ideas for this week’s cabbage recipe, I immediately thought of coleslaw (duh). Going off the idea of one of my favorite coleslaw recipes, I decided to add a bit more color, some Asian flare, and a little protein and I have to say I think I ended up with a winner!

Peanut Sesame ColeSlaw 2

Peanut and sesame are two of my most FAVORITE flavors when it comes to Asian cuisine. They lend a sort of creamy flavor to the sweet-tartness of the traditional coleslaw mixture and goes great with the buttery edamame!

Seriously, go make this NOW!

Did you do any shopping, eating, and repeating this weekend?

What is your favorite way to enjoy cabbage?
