Product I love

Hey ya’ll! I’m probably on my way to Galveston right now to soak up the sun with my volleyball girls and the other athletes and coaches from Team Austin. We are taking two huge buses down, having Shabbat in Houston, eating dinner, and then going to Galveston to our hotel. I’m pretty excited. I made an awesome surprise for my girls:Aren’t these cute? I got water bottles at Walmart and used puff paint to put the girls names on the bottles. Each one is different, so they can’t fight about it. They probably will anyways, but oh well.

Anyways today’s post is going to focus on a product that I have recently discovered and am totally in love with: Flatout Flatbreads.
These things are amazing. They are really large, which is really handy. They contain a large amount of fiber and come in different flavors. You can make wraps with them or use them as a pizza crust (I have yet to do this, but once I get back from my trip you can bet I’m gonna make some amazing pizza combinations on them).

Since I’ve gone pescatarian (I only eat fish about 3 times a week, the rest of the time I’m a veggie head), I have been trying to think of good lunches. Thanks to the Flatout Flatbreads, I’ve been able to create an amazing vegetarian wrap that is filling and provides tons of fiber from the bread and the vegetables.

My wrap ended up being very large because I overfilled it with tons of vegetables. I had spinach leaves, tomato slices, red onion slices, mushroom slices, peppers, shredded carrots, shredded Mexican blend cheese, and some Paula Deen’s Honey Mustard. This was perfect.

This wrap is perfect for a lunch on the go too. I plan on making a ton of these once the school year starts because they are portable and will fit into my lunch boxes (wait till you see them because they are pretty awesome).

This is my product of the week. Each week I will share with ya’ll a new product that I have recently discovered. I hope you enjoyed this weeks, and I look forward to finding something for next week.

Have an awesome Friday!

Hop To It

Hey ya’ll! I just got back from Austin. I couldn’t post while there because I realized I forgot my camera plug at my apartment. Total fail. That tends to happen when I pack to go somewhere. I always forget something, and I get this feeling that I did, but I can never remember what I forgot until I’m already halfway away. Oh well. It was a pretty nice weekend. The highlight was definitely going to Hopdoddy’s, which is a nice burger bar in Austin.

There are two locations in Austin. The original one that is on South Congress, and this newer location on Anderson Lane. I go to the Anderson Lane one since it is down the street from where I live. Seriously best day ever when I got the news that they were getting a Hopdoddys in my neighborhood. My mom, brother, and I decided to go after my CT scans because I could only have clear liquids before, so I was starving.

I ordered the Janis Joplin. It is a hemp seed patty with avocado, bean sprouts, tillamook cheddar, and horseradish honey mustard. This is one of the best veggie burgers I have ever had. The bun is soft and has the perfect sweet, nutty flavor. The actual patty is extremely tasty, and filled with a variety of flavors. The toppings go perfect with this burger, and you definitely know you are eating the healthiest of everyone at the table.

My mom ordered the Primetime. It is Texas Akaushi Beef with caramelized onions, brie cheese, truffle aoili, and steak sauce. This is one of the fancier burgers they have on the menu. I think it is quite delicious (although I don’t eat red meat anymore), and the brie cheese is to die for. Whoever thought of putting that on the burger alongside the aoili, three points for you.

My mom and I split an order of fries. One of my favorite parts of Hopdoddys is that they have tons of sauces. Horseradish honey mustard, some chipotle BBQ sauce, and sassy sauce (their special).

My brother got the Greek, which is lamb, feta cheese, arugala, pickled red onions, tomato, cucumber, and tzatziki sauce. He said it was pretty amazing. He especially loved the feta cheese on top of it.

My brother also ordered a milkshake. The milkshakes here are life changing. This is the sea salt and caramel. It was amazing. The sweet and salty combination was perfect. I would definitely order this one next time I’m there. Although all of the milkshakes are good. I also got a t-shirt when I was there that says: “We spank our patties and they like it”. I really can’t wait to wear that around and get weird stares.

I hope everyone has been having a fantastic week!
