Even though there was no U.S. Mail service on Friday because of Veteran’s Day, UPS was still working and my iHerb arrived containing some essentials.

If you need to order protein powder, probiotics, stevia, bulk herbs and spices, nutritional yeast, body wash, supplements, vitamins and so many other health and beauty products and food items, I always recommend iHerb.  They’re usually at least 30% cheaper than retail and sometimes about 50% off retail.  Theres free shipping on all orders over $40.

So far I’ve had a nice weekend and was productive in the kitchen.

Kitchen with sink stove and dishwasher

Just in time for Thanksgiving, I made something with cranberries…

…And mango

Sliced mango

And I had to stop myself from eating most of it because I’ve been waiting for good natural lighting and sunlight in order to get some decent photos.

But we’ve had overcast skies or rain for two days which has put a monkey wrench into food photography.

Good thing I have other things to choose from for nibbling.

I ordered up some Peanut Sauce Baked Tofu

1. What have you ordered up lately? 

Any good food?  Online purchases?

I’d like to order up some time with friends, time with a few magazines, and I’d gladly order up a laundry and dishes-doing fairy.

2. Anything fun and exciting going on for you this weekend?

Skylar has been wanting to practice bike riding on her new bike but it’s been raining and miserable.   We’ve been ordering up some Barney DVD’s and cranberries.  That’s about as exciting as we’ve gotten.

Enjoy your weekend!
