Sunday, May 11th

Banana with PB & Company Cinnamon Raisin PB on a Rudi's English Muffin for breakfast....
My Mother requested I pick up Salads at Chopt for lunch. This time I pre-ordered online and it went a lot more smoothly than last time. My 'Palm Beach' Salad $7.99 Romaine, Avocado, Tomato, Cucumber, Hearts of Palm and White Balsamic Vinaigrette was good. Better than something I could make for myself at home....
Common Market Three-Bean Chili with Root's Market Cornbread for dinner...
the rest of the Cornbread with EB for dessert....
Bye for now.

I adore cornbread. I love toasting it and spreading it with NOT GOING TO SAY PEANUT BUTTER but y'know.

I'd eat everything you had today. Nice move on pre-ordering the salads, I'm sure that saved a lot of headache!

Re: visit to DC area will have to wait until I recover from UK trip, and I promised a friend in FL I would visit her. . . So, not soon. Unless I win the lottery...

OMG that breakfast looks insanely delicious!! I think I'm going to make some cinnamon raisin peanut butter tomorrow! Good call pre-ordering the salads. Glad your experience was a lot better this time! Dinner looks amazing and cornbread with EB for dessert sounds absolutely perfect!

I don't know why you think I don't approve of your meals! I think you eat delicious meals!

That's great mom chose somewhere that has good vegan options- ordering ahead is always the way to go there. We would order in from there for work lunch meetings with some frequency while the SVP was in her healthy eating phase.
Cornbread and chili is always a great combo- especially when the cornbread is good!
Hope your furry kids appreciate what an awesome mom they have :)

No Vegan Treats!? That's okay; I've been eating enough for both of us and then some.

I have never called ahead for any kind of food. I feel like that has the potential to be way more disastrous than having the food made while you're there. But what do I know? That salad looks good, I know that.
Cornbread is great but it (and chili) seem like such winter foods to me! It'll be a while before I want chili...
I agree with unknown! Happy furmothers day to you.

Hey Now!!!!

Hannah, PB on Cornbread?! Is there anything you DON'T put PB on?

Ingrid, racking up lots of frequent flier mileage this year. Looking forward to seeing your London and Florida eats.

Sarah, you're going to make your own Cinnamon Raisin PB? Is that legal?

Unknown, I assumed that by ordering ahead at Chopt, they would not really do the whole big display of chopping up the Salad, but no, the pre-orders go through the same channels at the in-store orders. The fur kids in the barn are ready for their Mom to find them better digs, but thanks.

Abby, there is a piece of VT's Cheesecake in the fridge just waiting for me to make it my b*tch.

FF, we have had many disastrous results from calling in food orders, but avoiding the line at Chopt is worth the risk. And, yes, Chili & Cornbread is winter grub, but what do you do when there's Vegan Chili & Cornbread offered in May? Just say 'thanks, but no thanks'?
