MIMM: Foodie Heaven

Happy Monday everyone!

Okay, okay.  I know most people don’t consider Mondays a “happy” kind of day, but today is the first day of my spring break, so in this case, Monday has been pretty happy over here!

I decided to partake in the Marvelous in My Monday fun hosted by the fabulous Katie!  I have some pretty marvelous things to share with you this week!

First of all, I think we ALL know that Whole Foods is a marvelous place.  There is a Whole Foods near campus that has been under renovation for what seems like a LIFETIME! While it was being remodeled, they had a temporary store in a VERY tiny space in the same strip, and while it was nice to still have a store there, it definitely did NO justice to a normal Whole Foods!

So the point of all of this? The new store finally opened last week!

I stopped in on Thursday to check it out (and try to look as not-creepy as possible while snapping pics).  Let me just say…IT WAS AMAZING!

What a beautiful sight, huh? 😉

Look at all that fresh produce!

Tons of free samples of course 😉

HOT BAR! I have a feeling I will be frequenting this very often in the future!

It’s also really marvelous when you can do this:

It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it is most definitely marvelous.

So as you can tell, I’m obviously obsessed.  I was by myself when I stopped in and I SO wish someone else would have been there with me to bask in all of the greatness.  I need to find a foodie friend in the Columbus area. Now taking applications! 😉

Speaking of foodie marvelousness…

After my trip to Whole Foods last Thursday, my mom, dad, sister, aunt Judi, and I went out to dinner at a fairly new restaurant in Dublin called The Pint Room.  It is an awesome bar/restaurant with a really cool atmosphere.  And get this, all of the waiters take orders with an iPod! Totally high-tech.

Their signature items are their burgers, and once I saw the menu, I knew exactly what I was going to order.

Can you guess which one it was?

Oh yes, I went for it.  The P-B-B & J!  I know, I know. It sounds like a REALLY weird burger combination. Peanut butter, jelly, bacon, and cheese?! But, YOU GUYS, it was SO GOOD.  Literally the best burger I have EVER had. Ever. Hands down. It was glorious.  Add some sweet potato fries on the side? Totally sold.

Words can literally not even describe how MARVELOUS this meal was. Yum!

I will definitely be re-creating this at home!

You know what else was marvelous about this meal? It wasn’t one bit paleo.  And I didn’t care in the least. I enjoyed trying something fun and different and an overall fun night out with the family! Sometimes you gotta just enjoy life, right? 🙂

The last marvelous part about this day was finding out that I got an A on my molecular biochemistry midterm!

Talk about a marvelous way to kick off spring break!

Hope you all are having a marvelous Monday as well!
