I am the type of girl who likes to reward herself for everything I accomplish, and I mean everything . . . Unloaded the dishwasher? You deserve a snack! Managed to wake up before my alarm (and not be grumpy about it)? Treat yourself to a Caramel Macchiato from Starbucks before work!
Honestly, food is the best form of motivation for me. Lucky for me, The Great Indoors offers over 20 delicious food vendor options where I indulge in whatever I’m craving (after I’ve earned it, of course!)
Now I’m sure we are all familiar with “Taco Tuesday” . . . the day of the week where, in my eyes, you are encouraged to treat yourself to a delicious taco (or 3) and it be perfectly acceptable. Well now I think I’ve discovered a day that I like even more. . . Fry-day.
Anyone who knows me knows that I am a french fry addict, especially the poutine from New Your Fries! So, what better way to reward yourself after a long week of work than with delicious cheese curds and gravy. . . A Canadian classic!
