A few food things on this Friday…
I drink two or three cups of green tea in the office every morning. I didn’t necessarily think all varieties were all created equal, but I did at least think there was a minimum standard that most of them had to maintain. Turns out, that’s not the case. I think I’m drinking Tetley right, but when it runs out, I’m going to pick up the Lipton green tea bags.
Have you guys seen the new Jif Whips?
I couldn’t resist – they’re new, after all, and I have a problem leaving new versions of tried and true favorites behind – and I’m glad I couldn’t. They are very good; the peanut butter flavor tastes like peanut butter, just a fluffy version of it. And with 40 fewer calories per serving, you can have the same amount for less, or you can have a smidge bigger serving for the same number of calories. You win either way.
Finally, I’d been enjoying Special K’s Protein Plus cereal and when I ran out and tried to get more, I couldn’t find it anywhere. Not at Walmart, Harris Teeter, Food Lion… I finally found three boxes on Target’s shelves this past weekend so I bought all of them in addition to two boxes of another protein-rich cereals. I haven’t opened that cereal yet so no review right now, but I’ll be sure to hopefully recommend it to you when I do finally try it.
Anyone have some recommendations for something I need to be on the lookout for on the grocery store shelves?
This week actually went by fairly quickly considering it was a short week. I don’t know why, but those tend to drag on more slowly than regular ol’ five-day weeks. Probably because I have such high hopes that the next weekend’ll be here before I know it.
Okay, back to the last few minutes of Hannibal and then the McHusband and I are hoping to get into bed at a decent hour, which for us means lights out by 11:00.
