As promised, I went to Ann’s House of Nuts today! This place sells nuts wholesale to the public. It is in Jessup, MD. Their prices are great and often when they are overstocked with something you can get it for super cheap! They don’t have a real website, but here is a link to their location info.
This place is small, but is STOCKED with all kinds of nuts and trail-mixes
This place has so much stuff – including candy But, I’m a chocolate girl so I wasn’t too impressed.
I kinda went crazy and got a bunch of stuff…
and I should have avoided this no matter how inexpensive they are…and they were buy one get one free so I got over 4 pounds of chocolate chunks for $2.00. These are basically squares of dark chocolate (instead of chips) so I am thinking I can use them for baking, trail mix, eating in a big bowl with a spoon, etc…
These Graham Squares are basically like a sweet cereal.
Unfortunately, I knew I couldn’t just eat nuts and trail mix all day (boo). So I ate my regularly scheduled lunch.
Cherries before we went to Ann’s
and a big salad and crackers after.
Then, a few mixes of my new loot. x2.
I have planned out our dinners for the week to help keep track of food spending and not waste food.
Tonight was ww pasta and meatballs. I got veggie meatballs from TJ’s for me and real meatballs for Ben from Costco.
Can you tell which is which? This is one of each side by side. The “real” meat ones seem a lot moister than the fakes. (The veggie meatball is on the left.)
Here is my plate. I wasn’t that hungry from an afternoon of eating nuts so this is less than I’d normally eat.And I sipped some wine…
Dessert – frozen smoothie from this weekend that was super hard and I had to chisel away at…
Ben’s Random Comment of the Day:
*Context: He was on the phone with his sister who just had a baby and is losing the weight very quickly because of breastfeeding. (She is also breastfeeding her other baby too.)
Ben: “Yeah, but you’re losing it in the most awful way. You’re not sleeping and having the life sucked out of you.”
Oh, and because I forgot this was my breakfast. I wanted to tell you guys I just decided to eat overflowing spoonfuls of almond butter for breakfast, but now that joke isn’t as funny for some reason.
