The Fresh Market

Hi there! While I was working away I ate a z-bar as a snack. 

After work I went to run errands. I had to go to campus and get some stuff from the bookstore. I am taking my graduate classes at IUPUI which has terrible parking! While I was trekking across campus in the FREEZING cold I decided that I needed a warm drink so I stopped at Caribou Coffee in the campus center and got a nonfat mint chocolate coffee. It was actually cheaper and better tasting than Starbucks! I wish there were more Caribou's around! Isn't the cup adorable!?!
After errands on campus I sopped at a few stores and went to the Fresh Market grocery store. It is like a fancy Whole Foods. I normally prefer to do some shopping at Whole Foods since they have a wider selection, but it is farther from my house and the Fresh Market is like 2 mins. away! They have some really nice stuff there and I found these mini asparagus! I just had to get some and use them for lunch. 
After running my errands I was STARVING! I made a simple meal of couscous with chicken and some reduced fat colby jack cheese as well as roasted asparagus. I drizzled some olive oil over the asparagus and topped with some salt and pepper, then roasted them in the oven for around 10 mins at 450 degrees. It was very satisfying!! :)

Must agree, that Caribou cup is cute! I don't think we have that coffee shop in Canada though - oh well!

Aww Caribou! That's Minneapolis company (and actually, I live right down the street from their headquarters!) <3

Isn't couscous divine? I need to make it more.
