[Eat] Kiwi Berries

kiwi berries from trader joes

If you like kiwi fruit, you'll have to try out these kiwi berries.  They're about the size of an olive, fuzz free and sweeter than their larger cousins. They're a little pricey though and I could probably eat the tiny container of them in one sitting, so they definitely fall into the "novelty" category.  But they are good. Just make sure that the berry is soft before you pop one in your mouth.  I tried a crunchy one and my eyes bugged-out and my throat itched for a few minutes-- just like eating a kiwi fruit that is a little too green.

And they even look like a kiwi on the inside...

how cute it that?

[Eat] Lemon & Triple Ginger Snap Ice Cream

Snurp... snnummm....yumrp.... yum, yum, smack... (that was me after the first tentative bite)

Lemon & Triple Ginger Snap Ice Cream.... Nope, it didn't make my "ooh, that sounds delicious, I must try it immediately" list either.  But after hearing rave reviews from several food-ista friends (plus a couple of TJ employees), I decided to give it a go. 

I don't know who dreamt up this combination-- lemon (think sweet lemon gelato as opposed to sour lemon sorbet) with chunks of ginger snap dough scattered throughout.  Seriously. Genious.

I couldn't even keep this "vanilla-only" child away.  He asked to try it, then downed my entire bowl--

Try it, you might like it!

Trader Joes...

gets me all the time

i went in for food,

namely milk, cereal, cheese... the usual suspects

and these somehow snuck into my cart...
at $5.49, including the succulent, how could i resist?

plus, the honeycomb pot reminds me of this $24 one from West Elm

I was hoping to work on a couple of projects today, but the weather isn't cooperating.  Damp and rainy doesn't mix too well with spray paint.  So instead, I'm cleaning out the office.  It's about time!

Hope your Tuesday is going well!

Would you like some Whine with that Cheese?

My guess is "probably not".

The kind that comes from grapes is A-okay,

But the high-pitched, "fingernails on chalkboard" sound

Emitting from a litte person is another story.

Smarty Pants just turned 4.

I'm wondering when the whining will cease,

And does the selective hearing ever go away?

Frightening thought....

Maybe this is just "how it's going to be",

Maybe this is a character trait!!

The thought gives me the munchies.

And nothing satifies the munchies better than

Trader Joe's White Stilton Cheese with Apricots.

My friend with 3.5 kids introduced it to me.

She knows a thing or two about good food,

And most important of all,

She's an expert on what goes best with whine!
