Technically I was supposed to have this written and posted yesterday, but that obviously didn’t happen. Whoops. Luckily I sat myself down and got it done today though. Just a reminder than you have until tonight to enter my giveaway for Manitoba Harvest hemp hearts.
I stopped by a new to me frozen yogurt place this week. I drive by every day on my way to and from work, so I figured I should try it out. I got cake batter yogurt with Reese’s Pieces (do they make anyone else think of ET?), Skor crumbs, mini caramel chocolates, and Smarties crumbs. It was pretty good, and I’m sure I’ll find myself there again.
I got myself and a friend tickets to the Women’s World Cup this summer! I’m super excited to be able to see some of the best soccer players in the world play in person. Obviously I’ll be cheering for Canada. I even have a red jersey ready to wear to the game. To ensure I got to see Canada play I got tickets to a double header on the second day on play in Edmonton. The first game will be China v Netherlands, and second will be Canada v New Zealand. I’m hoping that Canada plays well and we make it to the final match.
One of my favourite things to get at the farmer’s market are these cranberry orange scones. Every once in awhile they’ll be sold old, but I managed to get my hands on a few this week. They’re the perfect mid afternoon snack, flavourful with a little bit of sweetness from the orange to counter the tart cranberries.
I haven’t had these chips in a long time, so when I walked past them at the grocery store I thought I’d get myself a bag. I forgot how good this flavour is. For someone who doesn’t likes super spicy food, these have just the right amount of spice to them without overwhelming my mouth.
I found a sampler pack of these Rock Creek ciders from Calgary’s own Big Rock Brewery at the liquor store this week. (Fun fact for my American readers – alcohol can only be sold in liquor stores in Canada and not in grocery stores.) The box says that they’re a limited edition thing, so when I bought a box of them over the summer I figured I wouldn’t have a chance to get them again. I took advantage of the fact that they made a reappearance though. The cherry one is still my favourite with pear being my least favourite.
Who will you be rooting for during the Women’s World Cup this year?

I’m not a big soccer fan I must say, so I have no preference. Those rice chips look awesome though!
They were really good!
Canada vs nz?! I’m from nz and my bf is from Canada so that should be interesting! :)
You’ll have to sit at opposite ends of the couch when you watch.
