Fall Meals

Tonight we came home with a mission to get out of the house ASAP!  We went to Best Buy to play with the toys they have and it's my favorite kind of trip- a walking excursion!  First we had another edition of 10 minute meals.  Sitting at this little bar area is a huge upgrade from standing while eating....if only his mom knew.  (HI if you're reading!)

This blurry mid-action shop is ground turkey stirfry with soba noodles, mixed veggies, lots of dill, lemon, and peanut sauce.  Of course there are olives for garnish because we are klassy.

For my dinner, I decided to mix up the infamous pumpkin butter in a savory way.  I'm pretty sure I didn't invent this, but I would like to think I did.  And if it's nasty, then it wasn't me.

  • Orowheat sandwich thin
  • ~1 tbsp pumpkin butter
  • Lettuce
  • Slice of Provolone cheese
  • Roasted chicken
  • Granny smith apple slices
  • Cilantro
Smoosh together and eat!  It's kind of like Thanksgiving, minus the dysfunctional family.

You may be wondering what we bought at Best Buy- the answer is nothing.  We did spend an hour there and I got restless.  I felt like a dude shopping with my girlfriend at the mall.  Except this time there were only TV screens and no shoes

And I was not nearly as excited as this guy.
Do you go shopping with your significant other? Do you like 'boy' stores? 

I don't.  I hate Home Depot and Best Buy.  There- I said it!

I love shopping, but not with the husband in boy stores. He could spend ALL DAY at Home Depot. There's one right down the street from us, which doesn't make it any easier!

haha, I DO shop with Nick, but it's not my favorite, I'll be honest. Especially grocery shopping...he gets me side tracked so easily! He's like a little kid.

Are you looking to buy a TV? I'm thinking of buying one for Nick for Christmas but I Really have no clue what to look for!
