Sort of in conjunction with my last post, I recently learned about this center. It might have been nice to have had that option back when I went IP… though it wouldn’t have helped me any, actually, because I was “too old.” No need to make accommodations for a freak like me, now, is there?! After all, at this stage in my life I’m “supposed” to be married with at least a couple of kids. (Gosh, do I sound bitter?!… nah, I can’t imagine why you’d think that.)
A perfect match (different sweatshirt, actually!) …
Let’s not forget the socks. Which are stuffed into my boots, so nobody sees them anyway. Anal much?!
I made French toast on Friday morning… but not just any French toast, I made PBJ French toast! I didn’t mind the crunchy peanut butter in this case at all. Sorry for the nasty picture, but it was too early in the morning for anything else. 😉
I had quite an exciting trip to Whole Foods a couple of hours later! Highlights included these… of course, the week after my coupons expired.
I probably won’t buy them again — I don’t like buying flavored yogurts — but I wanted to try them once, and besides, I was so excited to see the smaller containers that I just couldn’t, well, contain myself. I tried the raspberry one already:
It was actually pretty good. I was surprised that it wasn’t sickly sweet! I also liked that there was a little bit of extra space in the container, so that you don’t end up having everything spilling out if you add something.
Whole Foods also now has Bora Bora bars! I was so happy to see four flavors that I haven’t tried: two of those flavors aren’t even on the website. I don’t remember what they are exactly. One, however, was cacao hazelnut, I think… since chocolate things are so often dairy, I looked at the ingredients panel, even though it was marked kosher pareve (as in, not dairy). Guess what? Milk chocolate. Okay. That won’t do. I took the other two flavors (the fourth contained coconut, which I hate). As I was waiting in line, I realized that one of those two bars had an icing-like drizzle on top which really looked like it would be dairy, so I read the ingredients panel for that one too. Milk powder. Lovely. I actually e-mailed the OU to “report” this error.
My aunt and uncle converged on my house… as soon as I set about making this.
It’s a “strawberry rice pudding.” It probably is paranoid of me to think this, but it really does seem that people converge as soon as I even think about eating! And then my aunt involved me in a lengthy conversation about her Bluetooth headset; apparently, since I am “from the younger generation,” I know how fix such things. Ha… I’m a total techno-dummy. If you turn something off and then on again, chances are it will start to work. That doesn’t make me a genius! It does, however, make for an interrupted bowl of rice pudding. Hmph.
This is actually from last week, but I think I was too busy ranting then to mention it:
My dad thought that the texture of this was more like ices / sorbet than the ones that come in the smaller containers. I think it’s all in his head! This was okay; not out of this world, but not bad. We will soldier on. 😉
There was supposed to be some massive snowstorm, but thankfully it never materialized! Not that I’m upset about that, or anything. I have quite the “busy” day tomorrow, none of which I’m actually looking forward to… I hate when that happens. At least I’ve gotten my opinions posted of the articles I needed to read. I don’t know how I do it… when I have no idea what I’ve read, how do I manage to blather on about it so much?! I suppose it is a useful life skill to BS, so it makes sense that you’d learn to do it, right? Though I somehow doubt that’s my professor’s intention…
Enjoy your Sunday!
In each journey of your life you must be where you are. You may only be passing through on your way to somewhere else seemingly more important — nevertheless, there is purpose in where you are right now.
