Foodie Heaven

I know I've complained that I was crazy busy, so this post is going to seem a little inconsistent with that, but today at 12:45 I went to

I wanted to go because this...
was on sale for $6.99 a pound. NY Strip Steaks Prime. I bought three. One for this weekend and two to freeze. I apologize if the blood makes you queasy.

While there I also bought these because they were on sale for 99 cents a pound Want a closer look?
There was a limit of 2 bags per customer. I only wanted one bag, but the little stock guy thrust two bags at me and I felt pressured, so....
I've got 5+ pounds of cherries!

This was also on sale...
I had to get asparagus because that will go wonderfully with my steak!

Then I saw these babies...
Home grown tomatoes. I couldn't resist.

Since I was at Central Market, I bought my favorite strawberry preserves.
While I was there I also looked for this...
to go in this salad recipe (recipe). I also looked for Onion Juice, but they were out. My friend Suz found some at Kroger, so I will try there.

It was really my day! My favorite yogurt was on sale also...
Can you tell yet that I went to the store before I had lunch? So BAD, especially when you are going to Central Market! I had a turkey and Havarti sandwich made that I ate on the way home. I also bought some of this goodness for supper....
Tomato, Mozzarella and Penne Salad (yes, it was on sale)
Apricot and Almond Chicken Salad (sadly not on sale, but so worth it)
And though I wish I had willpower, I do not.
So I couldn't pass up this gorgeous cupcake!

As if all of this wasn't enough, when I was checking out my checker lady said, "Honey, Did you get one of Truluck's Scallops?" I say "What are you talking about?" She explains that back in the demo area, they had just started a demo from the Restaurant Truluck's. She said "Go get you one, I'll check real slow!". I ran back there and got a little bit of heaven on a plate! I love scallops and it was BEYOND.

Then checker lady said, "Go through those doors and get your restaurant week coupons." I hadn't realized that restaurant week was coming up. I called a friend and found out he was game, so I have made us reservations for Del Frisco's during restaurant week and my coupons will allow us to get Fourth Courses added onto the restaurant week deal. It is super lucky because Restaurant Week is my one down week between Summer and Fall semesters! I can't wait!
