Highs and Lows/Foodie Penpals

31 Aug

Now, I don’t want you to think that my Foodie Penpal was a low…that was not the case!

It’s Friday and my last weekend before school starts up again.  I’m excited for the new school year.  There are a lot of changes, most of them good!

High: For lunch today we were treated to Bravo’s!  It was so delicious!  Very thankful to have such a yummy meal!

Low: I started the week with this

Yup, real classy looking.  That’s how I walked into school on the first day of teacher work week.  So what did I do?  Well, it was either Fight Club (oh wait, you do no talk about Fight Club), my new (not really new)gen ed teacher is really mean, or I was trying to get into my car and duck out of the way of a tree branch and the car door won.  If you guessed the last choice, you’d be right. 

High: Food Penpals!  My penpal was Sam over at SexyFlexi.  She gave me an awesome Foodie box! 

Start at the left: chocolate roasted almonds S’mores, apple chips, Seaweed snacks, Madras Sambar, Vegan sprinkles, Cracked Pepper Jerky Stick, and last but definitely not least a twisted cheese croissant from Homeboy Industries.  Let me tell you, that croissant did not last long.  Pretty much as soon as I opened the box…I inhaled that croissant, sooooo good!

High: Continuing on from the Foodie High…  Sam made the ingenious move and included Wes Anderson movie quotes to go along with all the foods.  I seriously gasped and did a little happy dance when I saw that.

Croissant – “How do you say “grilled cheese” from Hotel Chevalier.  Jerky – Anthony “cracked” and when to the nuthouse from Bottle Rocket.

Madras Samba – Indian Food from Darjeeling Limited.  Vegan Sprinkles – “I’d like to order some ice cream for my daughter please” from The Royal Tenenbaums.  Sea Snacks – “I’ve been out to sea for a long time” from Rushmore. 

Dolphin Endangered Species Chocolate – “Son of a bitch, I’m sick of these dolphins” from The Life Aquatic.  Somehow I don’t have pictures of the apple chips (which I ate as a snack at the airport) and the almonds…  The quotes were: “The boy is being held in an apple crate on top of a gun cabinet in the attic of the Bean Annex” from Fantastic Mr. Fox and “Because what’s camping without S’mores?” from Moonrise Kingdom (which I still need to see).

I loved that Sam did that!  It was totally cool and I loved it.  Did I mention I loved it?

High: Sunsets, they are just perfection

Welp, I just got back from a walk.  The first one since I slammed my face into the car door.  I’m gonna chill have some din din and declare tonight movie night!

Have a great Labor Day weekend!
