I Tell You What I Ate (Or Foodie Pen Pal Reveal Day)

So, here I am all wide awake at 6 am on a Saturday. This is what happens when you have a big Boxer puppy sleeping in a box next to your bed: he whimpers all sweet and plaintive-like until you take him outside in your bathrobe and Uggs so he can pee on your trees. Now before you judge me for venturing out in such a hideous ensemble, I must tell you that there is an old Asian lady in my neighborhood who walks around with a parrot on her shoulder looking like some sort of lost pirate. Also, I walk him before my latte, and I’m not really required to be presentable — or coherent — pre-espresso.

So anyway, it’s probably a good thing he gets me up early because I’m not naturally a morning person. At all. Plus I have a big day ahead of me prepping for tomorrow’s dinner party, but first things first…

It’s Foodie Pen Pal Reveal Day!

Katie from Talk Less-Say More sent me a thoughtful package and a nice note. There were a variety of items in the box, including her homemade banana trail mix cookies, complete with the recipe and all. (Very thoughtful!)

The highlights for me were Justin’s chocolate hazelnut butter (sort of like eating a melted Ferrero Rocher treat on your toast), and the Archer Farms Fruit Strips. Many of the items in the box were expensive, healthy bits like Sweet Potato Pop Chips, Luna Bars, and whatnot. Frankly, it was quite a revelation to discover that the moist, flavorful fruit leather was available at Target!

Here’s the chocolate hazelnut butter on my homemade bread. I’ll post the bread recipe later, K? I promise.

Now I may have to add Target to my grocery store rotation, which already includes Trader Joe’s, Ralph’s, and Costco. (See, I have this thing were I must pay the lowest possible price for say, Jarlsberg Swiss, even if it means wasting gas and driving all over the eastside of LA to do so. It’s just the principal of the matter.)

Now it’s time to crank up the Kaskade and do something about my place before 10 television writers invade tomorrow expecting to be fed.

Kisses!
