My sister emailed recently to tell me some of the things she loves, or more specifically, has been "splurging" on lately. It was fun to read her list: Kashi Cereal- Honey Almond Flax, Cliff Bar - Banana Bread, FUZE drink - Banana Colada.
My response: dark chocolate...everyday about 2pm when Mr. Intensity is having room time, so I don't have to share! Actually, he's been coming to me in the afternoon saying, "I haven't had my chocolate today, Momma..." as if eating chocolate every day is an inalienable right.
Besides chocolate, I've found another pleasure: this vegetable cellulose sponge from Trader Joe's. They come in a pack of 10 or so. Part of the novelty is that they're squished almost flat; when you put them in water, they grow HUGE. Mr. Intensity LOVES to watch them grow. They feel awesome in your hand. Anyone else tried them?
This sponge makes me want to wash every one of my dishes by hand. Just kidding. It's not that great. FYI - Usually I plop the sponge in the dishwasher at the end of the day to kill all the yummy germs.
Another recent scrumptious find is Triscuit's Fire Roasted Tomato crackers. Hubby likes them, too. He ate a whole box - by himself - in a matter of hours. They are so yummy. They're salty like chips but have fiber, so they're not empty calories.
Oh! I wanna share the love. Leave a comment and tell me one of your simple pleasures. On Saturday I'll pick a winner and mail a flat sponge to you (even if you don't live in the US). Make sure to leave contact information if you don't have a blog.
