Good evening and happy Saturday! I just realized that tomorrow/tonight is daylight savings. I HATE losing one hour, especially while at work. It is so confusing lol.

Last time I wrote was Thursday. That night at work was pretty boring, there were lots of dancers and not much of a crowd. I got there around 11:30 PM and left at a little before 3 AM.

Yesterday, I decided to reschedule my tax appointment for next week because it was just way *too* much for me to handle this week. Luckily we did call again because somehow she didn’t even have us down for the date we originally asked for? She better have gotten it right this time…

For dinner boyfriend made us this bland meatball soup. πŸ˜› The day went by routinely but, work was so, so much better for me. I was there until nearly 7 AM. Phew!

I was extremely grateful but, I’ve noticed our crowds in the past have been waaaay bigger during this time of year. That dang virus has people canceling their trips left and right. 😑 It has really been killing the vibe/atmosphere. My co-workers and management are crabby, for good reason but, still— it’s not nice to be around all the time.

Today, I woke up around 3:30 PM, took a shower and got ready for the day quickly. We went to Greens & Proteins for dinner, which we haven’t been to in a hot minute! We used to go to the one downtown but, I guess they close at 5 PM now?

It was our first visit to this location– I liked how spacious it was.

And, cutely decorated, too!

For starters, we had the Ahi Tuna Tostadas. I don’t know why I always forget these have so much avocado on them. We order them almost every time and never remember to ask them to remove it.

Boyfriend also ordered a big plate of sweet potato fries since his entree didn’t come with them.

Kind of annoying that they gave them to us way before his Steak Tacos though.

He took the photo (above), by the way. πŸ˜‰ All credit goes to him!!

I only had one piece of the meat and it was pretty tasty. He liked them only alright, though. He said there was a weird taste to some of it and rated it a 3 out of 5.

My bison burger was awesome. I tried their vegan cheese for the first time and was actually a fan. It tasted wonderful on top of my patty!! My sweet potato fries were much crispier and warmer than boyfriend’s.

I also picked up three pastries, LOL. The banana chocolate loaf and carrot cake loaf– which I’ve had before and the walnut brownie that I’ve never tried. They’re all vegan and the ones I’ve already tried are just mouthwateringggg. I definitely have high hopes for the brownie!

We walked to the Starbucks right next door for our iced quad espressos, stopped at the ATM, the watermill and gas station then, finally headed home! I can’t believe it’s already past 8 PM!

I better get going on my hair and makeup now.

Hope the rest of your weekend is the best ever! ❀

  1. The food looks awesome, but I am sorry that BF’s tacos didn’t taste as good as they looked. I never understand why sides are brought out before the meal, but I know some spots here mention that things will be brought out as they are made for maximum freshness!

    1. Aw yeah, he didn’t even mention not liking them as much until I asked while writing this lol. He’s such a trooper. 😝 But yeah, I totally get that about the freshness but since they were fries, & they were hot & perfect as my side I think this time around, that wasn’t the case so, it’s unforgivable. πŸ˜‚ (just kiddin’ of course lol).

  2. I also hate losing an hour for Daylight Savings!! I can’t believe how much a single hour throws me off, it takes about a week to shake the sleepiness.

    Ugh, it’s so scary/crazy how this virus is affecting literally everything 😦

    Yesss, greens and protein looks like a place that would be a staple for me if I lived nearby !!! YUM! It’s rare to see bison burgers on the menu too! AND good vegan cheese is rare- so that’s exciting! Those desserts sound absolutely delicious. Thanks for sharing, Hunida! Xox GOSH, it’s nice to read an update post from youuuu!!!

    1. Lol oh my gosh, me too. I think I am still shaking off the sleepiness. πŸ˜›

      & I agree, I wish it would stop spreading & go away now!!

      I really do love Greens & Proteins but it’s a bit of a drive away from us. 😦 The bison burger made it worth it! & I was def impressed with the vegan cheese. Maybe the meat helped make it so yummy though? I don’t know what kind they use or if they make it themselves! I’ll have to ask next time. πŸ™‚

      Thank you for stopping by, love!! ❀

          1. You are so sweet, love. Thank you so so much ❀ I am awaiting to hear if clinicals are continuing- I sure hope they are because I cannot stand not doing something right now! Hope you are safe and healthy too. ❀

    1. They were delightful once we removed the big slices of avos. πŸ™‚ & I saw that universities are shutting down classes & offering online courses!! CRAZY!!

  3. My internal clock is still not used to this time change! I hate how the virus is affecting so many people. I hope you all are staying safe! I can’t believe all that’s going on right now with the stores being cleared of supplies.

    They were super generous on the avocados for the tostadas — I would love those!! Oh man, those sweet potato fries look absolutely delicious too. That’s a bummer that boyfriend didn’t care for his steak tacos because they looked amazing, and so did your burger too! It feels like forever since I’ve read any posts on here, so I’m glad to be catching up a little bit! β™₯

    1. Yeah, I have been waking up at different times everyday! I am so stressed about this virus. I wish that people weren’t buying the whole stores out so those who want to go about their days normally could. We have zero toilet paper over here now.

      They def were generous with those avos, weren’t they? There was a mousse made with it underneath everything too. The sweet potato fries were really nice & boyfriend still ate all his tacos so he can’t complain too much. πŸ˜‰ I’m craving that bison burger & vegan cheese again now!

      I haven’t been reading much at all lately, either. It was so nice to hear from you, Stephanie! ❀ I'll be catching up on your blog very soon!

      1. It’s so funny how just an hour can throw people off. I went to the store last week before all the craziness broke out, but I’m dreading it when I have to make a trip soon! I honestly have no idea what to do if we legit all ran out of toilet paper due to people buying bulks of it, but I don’t wanna think about that extreme.

        I hope you get your bison burger and vegan cheese again very soon! I don’t think I’ve ever seen that at any restaurants I’ve been to yet but I’ll keep my eyes peeled for it!

        It’s so refreshing to catch up and see what everyone else is doing after not being online! I think the craziness of this past week is just throwing everyone off. Looking forward to catching up with you as well, Hunida! Have a great rest of the weekend! β™‘

        1. Ahh, Stephanie. I don’t know what it’s like over there but, our stores have so many empty shelves. You should stock up on as much food as you can before everyone buys everything all! I really do think the toilet paper is sold out lol. We can’t find any anywhere!

          You have never seen the bison burger or the vegan cheese on a menu? Or both? πŸ˜›

          I agree ❀ reading blogs is definitely a nice refresher from the craziness that's been happening!!

          1. I went on Monday and so many bare shelves, but I managed to snag a good amount of stuff! I’m hoping that it’ll die down so I can look for more meats later in the week. I hope you all have enough toilet paper and essentials to last you for a bit longer!

            Both to the question! I actually haven’t seen either a bison burger or vegan cheese. I know there’s a pretty cool vegan restaurant around here, but I don’t think Stephen cares to try it so I’ll have to find a friend to go with!

            1. Aw I’m happy to hear that you were able to find a good amount of stuff. I hope you got some meats now, too! We haven’t seen chicken at the stores all week. 😭 & we are on our last roll of TP!

              Lol boyfriend wouldn’t want to try a fully vegan restaurant, either. But, I do recommend the bison to both you & Stephen. 😁

              1. I had Stephen go with me yesterday to Kroger so he could witness the craziness. They surprisingly had some meat, so I bought some! Still no sign of toilet paper, but I’m more crushed about the decreasing stock of ramen that I have, and there aren’t any in the stores still. I’ll definitely try a bison burger, hopefully whenever things are cleared up!

                Do you have a toilet paper update!? That makes me worried for you, but I hope you got some my now! 😦

                1. Oh my gosh, we just went looking for some cup noodles but, couldn’t find any either! We got some asian brand packs from the asian store though.

                  Lol we found a tiny 4 pack of TP. Already on our second roll but I think by the time we run out again, the shelves will be more stocked up again. HOPEFULLY.

                  1. I suppose we can always rely on our Asian grocery stores if they’re still open to provide us with some noodles!

                    I’m glad you managed to find a small pack of TP β€” I’m super surprised you found one! Still no sign of them here, but a cashier mentioned how people show up before 9:30 and it’s mayhem! I’m hoping that the buying restriction and frenzy will calm down by the time we need some. 😬

  4. That Greens & Proteins place looks so interesting!! I wonder if we have a place like that here, I would love to try it even though I have yet to try Veggie Grill lol. .
    Considering they have a bison burger it’s not all vegetarian I assume lol. But good to know they have vegan cheese. Is that banana chocolate loaf the same you had me try?? Cause if so, delish!!!!

    1. I love Greens & Proteins, I just wish they were a bit closer to us. They do have a quite a few vegan options but, yeah, they also have a lot of meat choices. πŸ™‚ The banana loaf was from there! I’ll have to send you one now that I know you liked it. ❀

      1. I tried to find a place like that around here and we have one called Garden Bar. Sounds pretty good, may have to try it someday for a healthy alternative. πŸ™‚ Sounds a lot like Greens & Proteins actually πŸ™‚
        awwhh yay!!! LOL let me know if there is anything you would like me to send to you. I’ll try my best to find things made here or local stuff from the farmer’s market (provided they open this upcoming season)
