Yup, I've gotta hide 'em from myself. I think I ate half a dozen of those lemon-filled Oreos yesterday. I discovered them while filling my cart with fertilizer, Meow Mix and a new stock of Nestles with mini marshmallows.
When I went to the stand, the clerk's helper said, "As long as you keep it under a hundred dollars, that will be good."
"Not with this fertilizer," I said. I kept it under two hundred. It was big-item day for the shopping cart, both size-wise and price-wise.
But those lemon Oreos, touted as "spring" cookies are worth their weight in gold. Only problem is they're so good that I'm worried about my weight, whether it's gold or flab. So, I'll hide them in the cupboard today to avoid temptation.
I enjoyed another combination last night. It's a Swanson's pasta/chicken combination. Ten minutes of microwaving and then a fine main dish with a salad on the side.
I picked up one of those squeeze bottles of Litehouse Dressing----ranch variety. They're almost $5 apiece, but I love the honey mustard and the ranch enough to grab the big container.
Only problem is I squeeze more out than I ought to. So, my salad was loaded down with ranch dressing. A little dribbled over into the chicken pasta, and that turned shameful.
I kept mixing my salad with my pasta, and it was just too good.
So, when my plate was empty, I went back to the kitchen and dished up a little more pasta, squeezing some more ranch dressing on top. Yum. Yum.
This commentary comes from the same person who loves Litehouse honey mustard globbed on to her slices of three-meat Dijiornos pizza.
I told Bill how good the ranch was on the pasta, but he simply nodded and stuck to his one helping and called it good for dinner. For him, it's the ice cream afterward, lots of it.
He pulled out his gallon of Schwan's and heaped it up in the bowl, sampling it through the last part of "60 Minutes."
I refrained from ice cream last night, knowing I wasn't gonna eat "just one" of those Oreos.
Today I must be strong, both with spring Oreos and with my Litehouse dressing with a little salad on the side.
Maybe if I just opened a sack of that high-priced fertilizer and left it on the counter, I could resist further temptations in the kitchen.
Oh, I've gotten clear to the end of my post and have not mentioned the weather. One sack of fertilizer went on the lawn yesterday. My theory about fertilizer and sunshine, mentioned in yesterday's post, did not work.
It's a pouring-rain Monday, and that means I'll be stuck in the house near the rest of those Oreos.
Have a great day.
