Pancake Bandit

Heyyyyy Smile How was your day?? Hope it’s been glorious and relaxing.

I started mine off with a crazy spin class and breakfast with the fam.

Today’s choice was “The Controversy”- 2 scrambled eggs, black beans and salad Winking smile


+ a couple of bites of my bro’s pancake


(wheat pancake with coconut and chocolate chips)

We ran some errands and picked up stuff for the new place. Having access to World Market is becoming a little dangerous Winking smile


The roomies and I have been slowly moving our stuff in- we’re almost totally settled!

Some of today’s eats:


Xoom juice- acai, raspberry, blueberries, almond milk (!) and espresso. Bzzzz



We also made a stop at this one place for essentials:


The most exciting purchases:

-goat brie !!!!!!!! and

– a rosemary Christmas tree


We’re about to start dinner and the madre put me in charge of these:


Hmmmm. I think fries are in the near future Smile

See ya in the morning!

    Rosemary Christmas Tree? Sounds cute – show us a pic! And that pancake (wheat with coconut & choc chips) sounds amazing! I’ll have to recreate that one at home!

    Oh I love the TJ’s herb trees. They are the best! The Tj’s by me has herb trees and most of them are so $3.99 for a whole tree. vs. a tiny little container of rosemary from the groc store for the same price. If I’m thinking of the same thing, I love their trees! They have cute basil trees at my Tj’s too. I know sometimes their stuff is regionally distributed.

    The controversy. Lol’ed at that one 🙂

    And yes, World Market IS dangerous. As is Pier 1, Pottery Barn, West Elm,Z Gallerie (does the fancy mall you mentioned the other day have a Z Gallerie…if not, you’re “lucky”)…haha!

    Enjoy your night and I am soooo happy for you…gettin’ all moved in and settled in!

  7. Courtney @ Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life on December 19, 2010 at 10:08 pm

    Everything looks delish! Especially that Xoom juice…I gotta get my hands on one of those! 🙂

  8. Jackie @ Baking Charms on December 19, 2010 at 10:09 pm

  11. Christin@purplebirdblog on December 19, 2010 at 10:28 pm

    Awwwe I wanna see the rosemary tree!! And that xoom juice sounds crazygood!

  12. Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter on December 19, 2010 at 10:33 pm

    My parents live super close to a World Market. I absolutely love it, but its sad because they copy a lot of the designs of higher-end places. I’m really torn on the place. I love, love the designs and the cheap prices, but ripping designs off just isn’t too cool.

  13. Amanda (Eating Up) on December 19, 2010 at 10:38 pm

    That juice sounds unbelievable. As does that coconut chocolate chip pancake.

  14. Allison @ Food For Healing on December 19, 2010 at 10:50 pm

    that xoom juice looks insane! love it

    i’ve had a really productive day, as well as last night, did some baking and stuff for my blog! no rest for me until after christmas (work all week)

    How much better is your life now that you are in close vicinity to a trader joes? Their website has a ton of info on their gluten free products, if you are trying to buy more gf items. Also, they are soooo amazing about labeling everything gf.

    P.s. Your posts already seem more up beat since your recent move. It’s amazing how a bloggers mood really shows through.

    Good luck on your Xmas book deal wish. I would absolutely buy your book!!!

    Rosemary Christmas tree? I’ve never heard of that, I’m sure it’s fabulous. I <3 pancakes.

  17. mi-an dela cruz on December 20, 2010 at 12:40 am

  18. Floey on December 20, 2010 at 2:05 am

    Show us what a rosemary x-mas tree looks like 🙂 I wanted a lil’ tree for our place since we’re not getting a big one this year! Happy holidays girlie 🙂

  19. Cara Craves... on December 20, 2010 at 4:30 am

    I would also like a bite of that pancake!

  20. Imwaytoobusy on December 20, 2010 at 7:25 am

    Lucky girl…I miss World Market! Ours closed over a year ago. That was such a fun store!

  21. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is on December 20, 2010 at 8:14 am

    I’m intrigued by the rosemary christmas tree!

  22. Gabriela @ Une Vie Saine on December 20, 2010 at 8:16 am

    There’s no World Market close to us, which is such a shame because I LOVE the place. Probably good for my wallet, though 🙂 Thanks for reminding me that I have a butternut squash to use, by the way!

  23. Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat on December 20, 2010 at 8:38 am

    Luuurve butternut squash!! Sounds like a great day! 🙂

  24. Errign on December 20, 2010 at 9:01 am

    I read this post…then immediately got up & made myself a Bob’s Red Mill pancake with flax, coconut & chocolate chips – topped with peanut butter – ah-mazing!

  25. Krystina (Basil & Wine) on December 20, 2010 at 9:33 am

    Trader Joe’s goat brie is AMAZING. I ate almost the entire wheel in one sitting.

    • Errign on December 21, 2010 at 9:27 am

      All I can think of is Anchorman – “you ate a whole wheel of cheese?” 🙂

  26. Lauren @ Fun, Fit and Fabulous! on December 20, 2010 at 9:48 am

    I’m glad you are getting all settled in! I am very curious to see this Rosemary tree! Have a great day!

  27. Caree @ Fit-Mama! on December 20, 2010 at 10:04 am

    your xoom juice sounds awesome!! Where did you get that? or did you make it yourself?

    • Fitnessista on December 20, 2010 at 5:10 pm

      we have a place here called xoom juice and they made it! it was AWESOME

  28. Katy (The Singing Runner) on December 20, 2010 at 10:49 am

    I love TJ’s! I’ve only been there once (I’m from Florida and we don’t have them!) but they are amazing!

  29. Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin on December 20, 2010 at 2:59 pm

    I’ve never seen goat brie before… you’ll have to let us know what it’s like!
