Productive Day!

25 Feb

I got so much done today!!

I picked up our RSVP cards (I will post photos on the blog of the invites and RSVPs after they’ve been sent out)

I got groceries, picked up a thank-you gift for a friend,  ordered my wedding band, and am in the process of cooking dinner and addressing invites.

While I was out I also picked up my WEDDING SHOES!!! FINALLY!!!
This is THIRD pair I have bought. Third pair’s a charm right?

I got the pale silver ones. They actually look much closer to white than in the picture. I love ’em. Gotta go try them on with the dress though, just to be sure.

I also had the chance to try out a few new products today. While I was picking up groceries at Eating Well Organically, Istumbled upon this drink:

Just so we’re clear here… Lemonade is my favourite juice of all time. OF ALL TIME (ha ha Kanye!)! I don’t drink it often though because of the high sugar content.  I was hoping this lemon, lime, and ginger drink would taste like lemonade and it did!!! The best thing is that the ginger gives it a really nice kick, and there is no sugar added. It’s sweetened with white grape juice! This is pretty much the best beverage ever.  I highly recommend it.
This drink  has also inspired me to start my winter boycott again this year. For te last few winters, I’ve decided to begin my “summer habits” when I decide I’m sick of winter.  I’ve already had a popsicle (and I ate it outside), and some “lemonade”… Now I just need to start wearing a bikini top instead of a bra under some of my clothes and we’re set!!

I also bought these deeeelicious “super fu” patties by Soyarie. I am a fan of Soyarie products in general, so I was not disappointed. They are so great! Made from nuts and seeds… these babies even have peanut butter in the ingredients! and the nutritional profile was excellent.

I chopped them up, cooked them and added them into the quinoa I used to make quinoa stuffed peppers. So good. I will definitely make quinoa stuffed peppers again sometime. Should I post the recipe?? Is this going to be the kind of blog where I post recipes?? Maybe I’ll add a recipe page?? I guess the only problem is that I used a few home-canned things… like home-made tomato paste. Maybe I’ll post the next recipe.

well, I’m off to stat addressing more envelopes before bed! Yay me!!

    Definitely think you should have a recipe page Steph!
    By the way, the drink sounds delicious. I am wondering if there is anywhere around Chatham to get it, hah!
