panara bread scones

i really need to stop getting them.

They're often dry & the orange one is kind of sour.

i think i like the idea of scones more than i like the actual thing.  the word "scone" always brings to mind english tea parties in rooms decorated with chintz where you have scones with clotted cream, crumpets and little sandwiches & cakes

valentine's day 2018

or singles awareness day, depending on what your relationship status is.

but really it's just a reason to sell candy, flowers, stuffed animals & sexy underwear.

i'm hoping to find some discounted candy tomorrow.

gluten-free pizza

my brother got it into his head to try gluten-free pizza. we got one a few days ago & it was terrible!

i understand some people need to have GF stuff or their digestion system will try to kill them, but if all GF stuff tastes even half as bad, it's a steep price to pay.

no wonder why our one neighbor's friend's husband (who has to be GF) eats chicken about 95% of the time.

super bowl sunday

or superb owl, as some are calling it, to avoid the NFL coming down on their heads.

i really hope those smug patriots don't win. and to thing, that once upon a time they were the underdogs.

too early

wal-mart is putting out valentie's candy, which is to be expected. but they also have some easter stuff out!

easter is april 1 this year (no joke) so they are really rushing things.

this is as bad as the christmas stuff starting to appear in october.

banana pudding

more specifically patti labelle's banana pudding from wal-mart.

normally they have a large thing for like $12.00, but i found small, single-serve things not long ago. neither my brother, nor i were impressed.

i don't know what it is about banana desserts, but they sometimes have this sharp, almost metal taste to them. maybe because it's not fresh?

so far all of patti labelle's stuff has been lack-luster. the sweet potato pie and the apple & berry cobblers.

tried cookie butter

tried biscoff cookie butter which is made from some kind of fancy cookie Europeans have with their coffee.

it was nothing special. kind of a bit of cinnamon or something in it. probably won't get it again.

the trader joe's speculoos cookie butter is supposed to be great, but i had ben & jerry's speculoos cookie butter core ice cream and was not impressed.
