Living under a rock.

by Jenn (eating bender) on May 8, 2008

I have been living under a rock. No, seriously.

Ok, not seriously. But I have seen Annie’s Goddess dressing raved about on countless blogs over the past few months and have often wondered if it could really live up to all the hype. Well, I am officially a believer!

The salad is nothing elaborate. I didn’t have much on hand to add to it other than spinach (produce is on the grocery list!). But I think I could have just ate the dressing by itself and still be plenty satisfied. Either way, drizzled on top of spinach, it was so flavorful and delicious! I can’t wait to make bigger and better salads with it and feature it into more of my dinners!

As for the rest of dinner, I had a serving of Annie’s Whole Wheat Shells and White Cheddar with some reduced fat Mexican cheese mixed in and sprinkled on top.

A closer look:

And after that I decided I was still hungry, so I had some whole wheat mini pitas with hummus.

Mmm…the best meal I’ve had at home in a while – everything had so much flavor!

After dinner I went to the gym and did some cardio. When I came back, I couldn’t decide whether I wanted fruit or ice cream, so I took the easy way out and had both!

There’s Edy’s Slow Churned vanilla ice cream hiding under all those blackberries! These berries were especially ripe – I couldn’t get enough of ’em!


I’m glad to see we are all in agreement that shortened toes and missing belly buttons are not what we should be spending our money on 😉 There is so much more to life! I’m currently reflecting on my last night as a 20-year-old and wondering where all the time has gone! There is no way I would want to spend my precious free time worrying about altering how I look – I’d rather be cooking, eating, or reading blogs :mrgreen:

Tomorrow promises to be a great day! Bobby got us a tee time at a local golf course for my birthday! I love golf – I played on my team in high school and in tournaments during the summers, and now that I’m in college I miss it so much! I will be sure to take plenty of pictures!

Sweet dreams :)

Annie’s Goddess Dressing is heaven in a bottle, nuff said!

Oh my goodness, you’re almost 21!! You must be so excited. =)

As good as they dressing may be, I cannot give up my amy’s sesame ginger flavor – AMAZING.

I cannot believe you are almost 21!!! No going out and over-doing it, right?

Romina – Agreed!

Jill – No overdoing it! I’m not a big drinker, so my 21st is probably not as monumental as it is for others. I may have to have a margarita or something though, just because I can…legally :)

Haha you still beat me though–I haven’t even tried the dressing yet! But it looks so creamy–yum!

And ooo I love how you sprinkled the shredded cheese on top of the pasta! I’ve never tried that before

And whoo the big 21 is coming up! Surreal, isn’t it? But so exciting as well! Hope you have a wondeful time golfing :)
