Pink Tortillas: Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Pink Tortillas:  Breast Cancer Awareness Month

I never thought cafeteria food anywhere could make me this happy.  Hospital food, school food, …. never have I had such a smile on my face in regards to food on a plastic sectioned tray until yesterday.  In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I had the opportunity to eat a ham & swiss wrap secured with a PINK TORTILLA and a chocolate cookie with pink M&M’s in it to match! I see pink often these days, but I think today, this out-of-the-ordinary pink treat reminded me about monthly checks, friends who need reminders, and strong women friends who have fought this battle.  If you don’t get to enjoy something as crazy as a pink tortilla – - remember anyway.  Do what you can to remember & be aware of this senseless disease....

LEGO Candy!

LEGO Candy!

I know at least 4 kids who are complete lego fanatics!  Their idea of a vacation isn’t Disney – it’s the LEGOLAND store in Atlanta, Georgia!  Now kids can seriously play with their food ….. & the food is CANDY.   Lego shaped candies can be found in candy stores and online.  If you’ve got a lego fanatic with a birthday coming up, this is a great cake decoration and/or party treat.  You probably can’t pass these out unless you find some individually wrapped, but they are a fantastic double-whammy with kids.  This particular variety is sour & comes in several colors &...

‘Feeling Rebellious? Get Your Toilet a Tattoo!

Recently I had toilet seat debacle.  I basically had a broken toilet seat, and the process to replace it was a complete fiasco.  The screw broke.  After 3 tries, a sweet guest at one of my parties fixed it.  It was a learning experience, not just in the realm of toilet seat repair…… but toilet seat bling, too! In the process of buying my first ever toilet seat, I found TOILET TATTOOS.  I was midnight shopping with a friend on the night before Tennessee’s tax-free weekend, and called her from another aisle to come see this insanity!  Giant stickers to adorn your throne! Buy this?   Maybe. Or you could do your own!  These really don’t fit my bathroom & some of the designs are very pixellated. If you have a crack or an imperfection...

Bullets Make Good Smoothies: Pumpkin Spice

Bullets Make Good Smoothies:  Pumpkin Spice

If you don’t know what a Magic Bullet is, you’re missing out!  I hate cleaning a big ‘ol blender every time I wanna do something…. and I hate having to mess up more than one dish if I can help it. The Magic Bullet will mix your smoothie & let you drink it straight from the container – and it’s not as big as a blender! Pumpkin Spice Smoothie 1/2 a banana 2 heaping tablespoons of greek yogurt (plain or vanilla) 3 heaping spoonfuls of pumpkin pie filling (baking aisle) or your own mixture of pumpkin puree/spice orange juice and/or  almond milk (or real milk) – (See picture/caption below!)   SHOOT!  (just kidding – I guess it’s just “mix,” but I was still going with the bullet...
