Carded…at the Mall?
Post-run lunch today was a big green monster and a Dr. Praeger’s burger with soy cheese and avocado. Dessert was supercharge me batter:)
And for dinner I tried a recipe from Angela’s blog, “Lovely & Light Cranberry Almond Quinoa“. I halved the recipe to serve one hungry girl and it was fun to use new cooking techniques like sauteeing apples in vanilla and toasting almonds in the oven.
I agree with Angela that it could use a bit more sweetness, even with a bit of maple syrup added. But the combined textures of the crunchy almonds, chewy dried cranberries, and soft apples was great!
I had a Luna bar for dessert and then went to a bar with bunch of friends. There was a birthday party bus during the day so everyone was in fine form. It was so good to see all the girls!
And now I’m home eating big bowls of cereal with strawberries and chocolate chips. Great combo.
Carded…At The Mall?
So when I was at the mall yesterday after work a police officer stopped me and asked me for my ID. I had forgotten that the St. Louis Galleria now has a rule that if you are under 16 you have to be accompanied by an adult after 3pm on the weekend. Apparently they card anyone that looks under age 25 and I definitely fit that bill.
I know hanging out at the mall is the thing to do for tons of tweens and teens. My group of friends actually preferred the movie theater during middle school, but I know lots of fun flirting happens when these kids get dropped off by their parents. I personally haven’t had any experience with troublesome teenagers there, so I’m not sure how I feel about taking away one of the safe places they can spend time together.
- Do you have any stories about kids causing trouble at the mall?
- What do you think about this new rule?
Massage tomorrow morning. YESSSS!
