I jumped on the band waggon!

The Sweet & Sara band waggon that is! My trip to Whole Foods today netted me the last S'more Pie in original flavor and one small tub of vanilla marshmallows. I nibbled on the pie after my late lunch and groaned in ecstasy at the rich chocolate topping, the sweet graham cookie and gooey marshmallow center. These are pretty substantial in size, I could only eat half, and so rich and delicious. Definitely worth the price I paid for it. I have half left in the fridge and now I simply hope no one here spies it and scarfs it down before me. Should I have licked it in an obvious manner? haha

Other things I got today: Vitamins by VegLife and Floradix Iron & Herbs, white lentils, split mung beans, whole wheat pastry flour, brown basmati rice and yes, my favorite LightLife Balgona. mmm soy!

On my way back to work, since this was my lunch break, I stopped in at Penzeys Spices. All I can really say is WOW. I had six jars in my hands before I even scoped out half the store. Needless to say, I bought about a dozen spices, mostly things I was looking for. My haul? From memory as its all safely out in the car: cumin seeds, arrowroot, Mexican Oregano, brown mustard seeds, sumac, Veggie soup base, and ginger. I know I am forgetting some but the pics will clear up what else I procured tonight.

I do have more shopping to do tonight to round out my weekly menu. Maybe I will get home in time to take a reasonable pic of it that isn't super dark. Cross your fingers!

The whole haul:

Just the spices:

I'm so jealous!!!! I moved from a place with a Trader Joes and Whole Foods within a 5 mile radius to a place that is over a two hour drive from either of them! Those spices look so great. The smoked paprika would be used up quick in my kitchen!
