… that Sweet & Sour sauce makes any food better, like turkey sandwiches, broccoli, scrambled eggs, etc…
This is my new food rut…
100 calorie packs of popcorn.
I’ll confess to getting supremely bored with these selections. Looks like it’s time to move home, Momma! haha

I don’t really eat sweets anymore. Isn’t that interesting. I don’t even miss it either. Just stopped buying all that stuff when I moved here, with the stipulation that if I really want it, I will go out and buy it at the time.
I never have.
The other night I was at a Christmas party and got a plate of “regular” food. Then just never actually got dessert.
Like I said, I don’t miss it at all. And it’s not that I can’t eat that stuff. I can whenever I want. Now I just don’t. Practically, by chance. I mean, any day now I might want it and go to Cold Stone. I just haven’t thus far and don’t really need or want to either. Isn’t that interesting.
When I want something sweet I eat dried cranberries. And that works quite nicely for me.
By the way, I must be getting sick. Have had a headache for most of the last week and a sore throat for going on three days. Isn’t that interesting.
Mmm… my taste buds are still drunk with delight after sampling the dough from this delicious thing, which is currently browning itself to perfection in the oven…

Today I opened the freezer door to grab a bag of frozen peas, but when I looked in the first thing I saw was the ice cream. Cookies ‘n Cream ice cream. It looked surprised to see me, but I just pretended like I didn’t see it so it wouldn’t say anything to me. I hate it when that happens.
Then I grabbed the bag of peas and closed the door, without even bothering to look back.
