However, I did the damn thang as SnackFace suggested on her vlog- thanks for the advice, beautiful!
Upon arrival to reality, aka Gainesville, I hit up Publix because I was in desperate need of non-pantry items. I stocked up on some watermelon, yogurt, frozen mango (finally!) and cool whip, which was obviously the most neccessary purchase.
Thanks to Silk's sampling campaign, I was able to pick up their original- and vanilla-flavored Pure Almond Milks. Thanks for the coupons, Silk!
Usually, I tend to pick up Blue Diamond's Almond Breeze, but lately I've been more than ready to try something new- and this didn't disappoint!
I had a glass of the original flavor of Silk's Pure Almond milk with some broc and Sabra's roasted garlic hummus while writing a paper earlier- protein is great brain food!
The original flavor tasted great, but if you're looking for a milk-y taste, this isn't for you. There was a bold, nutty taste to the almond milk, but if that's your thing, I would highly reccommend (sp? there are certain words I just can't master!) this for your basic milk needs, whatever those may be.
On to the next, and in my opinion, my favorite of the two flavors, Silk's vanilla-flavored almond milk. The b-o-m-b.
You can even see that watermelon and veg in the background, most of which was eaten shortly after almond milk had its photo session.
I saved the vanilla for later (as it seemed more of a dessert flavor;) to create what would be a foodgasmic OIAJ. The oats were instant, lower sugar, apples and cinnamon from good ol' Quaker.
The nuttiness of the original flavor was retained, but I loved the extra layer of vanilla flavoring. It was a bit sweet, but a perfect Sunday night dinner addition, to be consumed while doing all of the homework I put off the rest of the weekend.
Holy yum! This baby was creamy.
As for the rest of the weekend, it was spent with my best friend Steph. She's a FSU Seminole, but being the mature adult I am, I've forgiven her for that;) Love her! She's created a monster by introducing me to South Tampa...
Other fantastic foodie moments of the weekend: Ahi tuna tacos with mango and avocado, unfortunately there's no photo because the room was pitch black; a Publix Greenwise cookie, which was two cookies with chocolate frosting and icing... mmmmm; and wheatgrass shots!
Any good foodie moments this weekend? Hope you guys are having a great night! Any Lost watchers out there?
