Hit on at Whole Foods… and a mushroom-y meal

Pin It!

The two things don’t really have much to do with each other, except that they both happened yesterday.

In the afternoon, while on my weekly trip to Whole Foods, a guy hit on me in the bulk aisle… We ended up having like a 20-minute conversation, and then he asked me for my phone number. Why am I telling you this random story? Because it got me thinking: Maybe I should be looking for guys in health-food stores.  Just Kidding!  But seriously, I’d probably have a good chance of finding someone with similar interests to mine! So everyone, go hit up your local health-food store! 😉

Edit: In later blog entries, I refer to the guy as Whole Foods Boy.

Anyways… on to the food.

Something got into my teachers (perhaps the recent cold spell here in Dallas?) because I had no homework last night! With so much extra time on my hands, I decided to be rebellious and NOT invite my friend, Mr. Microwave, to dinner. Instead, I cooked up a wonderful Fall comfort meal: mushroom stroganoff.

As I’v said many times before, I’m not very good at following a recipe to a T. My creative gene gets the better of me, every time. Last night was no different; I ended up using a combination of two different stroganoff recipes, mixed with some of my own panache. The result:

I ate the mushroom stroganoff over a serving of whole-wheat pasta, with some steamed bok choy on the side. It tasted just as amazing as it looks.

    The last time I got hit on (at work, closing alone) it was borderline sexual harassment. I’ve been trying to get into Whole Foods bakery… maybe the guy-crop there will be classier.

    Those mushrooms look divine. I don’t get to eat them often enough.
