Shopping and snacking

My trip to the mall was very successful!  On the way I had an apple and a luna bar as a small lunch.

Luna and Apple

At the mall I got a really great black dress that will serve double duty during Brad’s company Christmas party and my brother’s wedding (I’m a bridesmaid) next June.  I really really love it.  🙂

I also dropped by Crate and Barrel to spend the gift card my brother and his fiance gave me for my grad school graduation last May.  I got a teapot (super excited about) and a tiny little cutting board.  All of our cutting boards are pretty big so it will be nice to have a size more convenient for cutting up a small amount of veggies and fruit.

When I returned home I had a mini smoothie to hold me over until dinner.

Mini Green Mocha Smoothie

The smoothie was made with 1/3 cup of skim milk, 1/3 cup of vanilla yogurt, 1/2 scoop of chocolate whey protein, 1 tsp of instant coffee, and a small handful of spinach.  I call it a “Green Mocha”.  Yum!

Brad has been marinating tuna steaks in a mixture of soy sauce, ginger, and freshly squeezed orange juice all day.  We were going to grill it for dinner tonight, but it’s pretty cold and misty outside so I think the oven will be used instead.  Photos to come!
