Before we delve deeper into the mischievous world of poultry theft, I have to have my morning brotein bar.
Don't forget my lunch brotein bar!
Then I decided that it would be a good day to go to Sprouts, just to see what they might have on sale. Initially I thought it would be a solo adventure, but I ended up convincing Sidney to accompany me. When we got to the store, I just kind of wanted to walk around and gawk at all the wonderful things they had there. Most of my attention was focused on the bulk items section, where they have dark chocolate covered pecans and almonds, yogurt pretzels, gummi worms, and pretty much everything good in the world. Sidney also enjoyed this, so much so even that she couldn't leave without grabbing a few things...
She got some gummi worms, of which I had one.
These worms are extremely soft and have a very good flavor, so naturally I had to try the other variety.
She also couldn't leave without getting some yogurt-covered pretzels. And, of course, I had to try one.
These were also ridiculously good.
I then went to the chicken section and found an amazing deal. They had chicken thighs on sale for $0.99/lb! I grabbed two 2-pound packages and then headed straight for the meat counter. They also happened to have their chicken sausages on sale today, so I got 4. I got 1 apple flavor, one hot Italian flavor, and 2 sweet Italian flavor. With this, we headed for the checkout. All said and done and I got about 5.5 pounds of chicken for $9.50. This is pretty much a steal if you ask me! If I hadn't gotten any sausages, I would have ended up with 4 pounds of chicken for 4 pounds. That just sounds ridiculous coming out of my keyboard.
When we got home, we realized that there were still some left over chicken legs from a few nights ago, so I warmed those up and ate them.
But I would be remiss if I let this day go by without trying at least one of my chicken sausages. So I fired up the grill and threw down the hot Italian.
After a little bit, it was done and ready to be smashed. I sat outside on what turned out to be a beautiful day temperature-wise.
The sausage itself was actually pretty good for a chicken sausage. I think I'll always prefer pork sausages, but that's because there's more fat in those. This entire thing, weighing 5.75 ounces cooked, only had about 172 calories! It also had a nice dose of brotein. So there I sat, enjoying the treasure that I had found today and enjoying the weather while listening to the Royals game.
