What is it about PB&J to me that is just SOOOO heavenly?!?!?  Especially when paired with a yummy (SALTY) chip and a diet soda (I am clearly digging orange right now) this could be my favorite meal ever.

I feel like I am STILL refueling from yesterday’s 7 miler.  And a good one it was!  I started out with K but then she turned off (she had plans) and I continued on.  Anyway, as you can see I made my pb & j on Ez raisin bread that I bought yesterday at Trader Joes.  LOVE.  LOVE. LOVE TJs!  Good idea=running…Bad Idea= Trader Joes Post running.  Shopping hungry is NEVER a good idea.  Never.  Here is some of what I got:

OHHH ginger molasses cookies, how I LOVE thee!


Yes, I DID try the Paneer frozen dinner. And yes, it was AMAZING!

Seriously.  Happy camper.

Oh, and ps-you know who else is a happy camper?!??!

Yup.  ‘Nuff said.  So…what are your favorite Trader Joe or other specialty store finds!?!?

Right.  So if you don’t recognize that name, then yes, I understand…feel free to move on dowload one of his albums now!  🙂 Anyway, first thing’s first- Saturday dinner at Haru…  So, you must understand:  I LOVE HARU. Two words…Nom, Nom.



We were in a hurry to get to Pat McGee so we ate at the sushi bar. It was cool!

These sweet potato rolls were AMA-zing! OMG. With tempura sauce. I ate every.last.one. 🙂

Shitake mushroom and spinach roll-also enhanced by tempuri sauce 😉

Seaweed Salad

It was deeeelish!


Satisfied Customer=Full Belly 🙂

Next up was Pat McGee. I LOVE listening to Pat McGee.  It is quite reminiscent of my college years as well (even though it used to be the Pat McGee BAND).  I used to go to see Pat ALL THE TIME!  I was such a lil’ groupie 😉 hehe. 

 Anyway, I volunteered to sell merchandise at his show at the Tin Angel (in Old City, Philadelphia).  Husband helped me set up the booth and I think we did a good job!

How’d we do?!?!  So, we also met Pat’s keyboard and sax player and talked to him.  His name is Michael Ghegen.  Check him out.  Good stuff.

  During the opening set, we talked to Pat and his girlfriend, Tara.  They were lovely!  Then, Pat went on.  He was great!  I was soooo psyched becuase as we were talking, I mentioned that I am training for a half marathon in November and that on my playlist is his song, Passion.  It is a great, inspiring song. The line “it’s all about the passion” really rings true for me when I’m running. Boy was that cheesy!  Anyway, he played it for the finale after telling that story (of talking to me about that song)!  Cool, eh!  Go Pat! 

Seriously, Check him out.  It was a great show!
