Yesterday morning DH decided to make a run to Trader Joes to stock up on some goodies. Now we live in SW Colorado and the nearest TJ is either in Albuquerque or Santa Fe - both require an almost 4 hour drive to get there.. In the old day when we lived in Pagosa we used to make a trip to Santa Fe regularly - there and back in one day, plenty of time for shopping and of course lunch - DH doesn't go anywhere without having to eat!
We decided on Santa Fe, so we could go through Pagosa and get my new thyroid meds on the way. Also the drive to Santa Fe is so much prettier than going to Albuquerque.
By the time we got to Santa Fe is was close to 1pm, so naturally first order of business was finding the Trader Joes and then find some lunch nearly before going shopping.
DH is very kind and decided to skip the subway as I don't eat bread and he shouldn't either... he spots a sign "cafe" and a parking lot so he pulls in - it turned out to be a yoga studio with spa and a cafe. Oh well - looks like a healthy place to eat :)
There was eating outside but we decided to go inside as it looked like it was going to rain (and it did!)
We had a delicious lunch! I had the lambburger with a gluten free bun and curried roasted potatoes. I did leave most of the bun, I have discovered that I don't really like bread anymore... DH had a slice of quiche with salad and a side of the potatoes. For afters we shared (ok I had 1/3 of it) a flourless chocolate torte which was out of this world!!
At the Trader Joe's we found everything on our list and then some (talk about blowing the household budget!) We are all stocked up on dark chocolate again - DH was afraid of running out LOL I also found golden flax seed, so I am going to make a batch of flax granola with that and then mix it with my batch made with dark flax seeds.
We were out of there at 2:30 and it was raining, so we decided to head home, there wasn't really any other shopping we needed even if it had been fun to browse coming all that way... We headed home and arrive int he middle of a massive thunderstorm - we need the rain but couldn't it have held up for 10 minutes so we could have made it inside dry??
