Solar S'mores

This really isn’t so much a post as it is, “I need to go to bed and these are the photos I have on hand”. For snack the other day we were given graham crackers, marshmallow creme, and chocolate chips. We could have just eaten them separately, or had crunchy bits in a s’more-type sandwich, […]

Whole Foods, you are expensive.

When we were young we’d save money by going to a grocery store and buy some bread and butter and really thin sliced ham and call it lunch. Sometimes we’d go to a park and picnic, sometimes we’d eat in the car. We’ve tried this at Whole Foods in Omaha a few times, and this […]

I can’t quit you.

I can't quit you.

I love Italian dressing so much.  If they put it in a pop-top can I’d probably drink it.  I was going to eat an avocado drenched in I.D.* for dinner, but Annette called and we went out for burgers at R.O.’s.  We saw the Pester family there!  Anyway, I struggled all evening not to eat […]
