I hope everyone had a Happy Halloween! I stayed in and watched some of my favorite Halloween movies... the Greenwich Village parade was too much for me (even though it went right by my building! lol). Since it's that festive time of year, with Halloween yesterday, and Thanksgiving and Christmas on the way, I decided to share some of my favorite festive eats, along with some of my favorite foods (both old & new)! Here's what I had today so far...
For breakfast I had my favorite Clif bar, which is one of their seasonal flavors... Iced Gingerbread! Yum! (I was thrilled to see that these were back in Whole Foods! :)
Since I was going by it around lunch time, I decided to stop in my new favorite restaurant, Qi Asian Eatery. I got the same things as last time...
Their delicious mushroom spring rolls...
and their AMAZING pineapple fried rice!!!
I stopped in Red Mango to try their new pumpkin spice frozen yogurt with free graham cracker topping! I thought this was pretty good, although I still prefer the original better. I thought the color was too orange (almost artificial) compared to what I saw in the ads, and a small with free topping still cost me $4.30 (which is not exactly a bargain!). Still, it's a cute idea!
I finally tried Boca's vegetarian chik'n nuggets, and I am SO glad I did! These were really tasty! In fact, they taste a lot like regular chicken nuggets, which makes me a little leery, but I did check the ingredients and it seems all good... I made my usual Annie's mac & cheese and peas with it (which is ALWAYS a favorite of mine!).
I had my new favorite Vitalicious product... their double chocolate dreams Vitatop! I've been meaning to do an extensive review of the Vita products for some time now, especially after the wonderful Katie (from the Vitalicious company) sent me a HUGE box of goodies (see here)! But this particular flavor is my new favorite, along with my old favorite, the Vita deep & velvety chocolate brownies, which I truly cannot recommend highly enough! (I have featured these many times in my "daily eats," so do a search if you want to see more!)
And for a last blast of Halloween, here is what I had for breakfast yesterday morning...
This is from a terrific company called "Fat Witch Bakery." They make lots of delicious brownies, and they actually make a breakfast brownie, with oatmeal and coffee in it! And yes, it is amazing! I figured there was no more appropriate day to have it than Halloween! :)
And finally, here's the Peanut Pumpkin lit up last night. Spooky, isn't it? lol
I decided to do just a food post today... hope you enjoyed it! If you enjoy some of these foods as well, I'd love to hear about it! xo
