I had lots of good food over the weekend that I need to update with! Sunday morning for brunch I went to Park's Edge with a few friends. I ordered Chilaquiles with Fried Egg. It tasted delicious. I loved the cheese on top, it tasted authentically Mexican. I think they could have used better quality chicken but other than that I really liked the sauce and it wasn't too spicy.
I have also never had a fried egg before! When she asked me how I wanted my egg fried I didn't even know how to respond. She asked if I liked the middle runny and I said no...but it was runny anyway. I ended up liking it so that's a plus, I tried something new!

After dinner friday night (I'll make another post for that) Cassandra and I decided to get gelato. It was all because I saw their HUGE poster on the side of the building in Virginia Highlands and really wanted a sprinkle cone. I got dulce de leche. It was amazing.

Tonight was the last night of the Turk'y burgers. 4 yummily delicious nights in a row and atlast I have run out. :( It has also been a record 11 days since I have eaten any meal from a restaurant. Since I've bought some new things at the grocery store it hasn't been that bad.

Today I tried the lemon parfait Yoplait Delight. When I was shopping I debated between buying the caramel and the lemon, but went with lemon since that was what was in the magazine. I think I should have stuck with my first choice. The lemon wasn't bad. But it is still yogurt and not as tangy as a lemon dessert should be. I am sure the caramel is much more delicious and I'll get it next time.

AMAZING! I had a real turkey burger for the first time recently, so I decided to try these fake ones, 1 because I don't have a grill and also because I don't like cooking meat. I have had them the past two nights in a row and they are sooo filling and good. Meredith made fun of me for eating fake flavored filled patties instead of real turkey but I don't care! I'm too picky to cook real meat.
I ate my meal with sweet potato fries and broccoli salad. I topped the burger with feta cheese, lettuce, sprouts, and honey barbecue sauce.
(The actual burger is kind of hidden by my huge pieces of lettuce..)

My first try was the Planters NUT-rition Omega-3 mix. The mix of walnuts, cranberries, and chocolate covered soynuts is amazing. I love that it is sodium free as well. I usually don't like salt on mixed nuts and this has absolutely none. I can't wait to try the rest of the snacks throughout the week because this was a hit. I will post as I try!
I skipped over a few of the items that I wanted to try simply because they were $6 each or I couldn't find them in the correct flavor. I want to mention them though incase I get them at a later time. They sounded worth trying:
1) Amy's Gluten Free & Non-Dairy Cake in Chocolate
2) Quaker True Delights Rice Snacks in Sea Sald and Cracked Black Pepper
3) Gardein Seven Grain Crispy Tenders (meatless) ---I had these in the cart as well as the cake and forced myself to put them back. vegetarian food is $$$$!

One of my favorite meals to make when I don't know what to fix is an egg salad sandwich. I had several eggs I needed to use and I'm trying to be more frugal so I had scrambled eggs for breakfast and then an egg salad sandwich for lunch/dinner (It was like 4:30pm so I don't really know which one it counts as).
Here's an old picture of a sandwich from a place that makes the best egg salad ever, Heidis. Mine was not as good, but I tried. I originally thought this picture was of egg salad, but I think it's from the time I got the veggie sandwich.

Even if its forcing you to read about blood right after you read about my tasty nachos.
I attempted to donate blood today but my iron was too low. I've been taking pills because of my low meat diet, but apparently not enough! Anyways, I am a big advocate of donating blood so try to go and do it if you get a chance. It definitely is worth it for the help that you can give someone in need.
And here are my two t-shirts. I had to wait a long time because their printer broke, so I got free things even though I didn't actually donate. The lady was insistent that I needed a size XL...I asked for a small and she told me that they "run very small" and that it was "like a child's small". Well it looks the same as any other small I've ever worn, but thanks to that lady I now have a size small and XL.
Oh and I lied, this is food related because look at all the goodies I snatched from the free food table.

Just incase you were wondering about the way I grocery shop! No meat and lots of veggies & carbs... I didn't let myself buy any of the delicious looking desserts. They had whole fruit tarts and HUGE half mango/vanilla cakes with buttercream frosting for $6.99. Maybe next time.....

Sunday while I was down on the beach, Mom, Dad, and Pa drove down and got me a hot dog! Actually mine is a chili dog without the hot dog part because I don't like it. It was perfect 4th of July beach food. I wish I had one right now. Actually I wish I had eaten at Trolley Stop and gotten a veggie dog THE BEST HOT DOG EVER! 1 Carolina style and 1 Wrightsville style...although I guess if I had bought one in Southport I would have had to edit the Wrightsville part of that order.

I just want to add that I had a wonderful week at home and am safely back in Atlanta! Back to work tomorrow.

Tomorrow is the Southport 4th of July parade, which is the largest military parade in the state for the 4th of July. I want to go, but will be driving back to Atlanta tomorrow. I'm having a great time at the beach and spent all day down on the beach. The weather was unseasonably cool yesterday but back to being hot today. I am not looking forward to leaving tomorrow!

We came here for Meredith's Bachelorette party and I wanted to try the restaurant so I suggested it as somewhere to go for mom's birthday. She picked it and we had a great dinner!
