WOW Me Wednesday!

Standard

Hadddd to show you these! Wow, wafer cookies have come a long way!  No more plain vanilla, chocolate or strawberry.  Voortman wafers actually come in several fun flavors.  I think I saw Key Lime too.  Soooo yummy! Your welcome.

Bunny Trail Mix

Standard

Belley and I had a few days together last week while mom and dad had a little get-away.  We were going to meet Amie, Ellie and some friends at the zoo so we made up some trail mix for a snack.  Annie’s Snicker Doodle Bunnies (delicious & from Target), mini-marshmallows, raisins, Easter colored M&M’s and some Pink Princess Goldfish.

Very Yummy!

And if you’re making Bunnie Trailmix for your friends, you must have cute Bunny Snack Bags!

Allergies?

Standard

It’s that time of year again!!! Buy local “unfiltered” honey for your allergies- start NOW!  One teaspoon/tablespoon every day, besides being delicious you have the extra benefit of keeping your allergies at bay! Andddd yes, those are pigs – salt & pepper shakers, thank you Tara!

Real Beer!

Standard

I went to the grocery store last week and this sign made me chuckle.  It’ll be 24 years, this year, since I moved to Colorado and full strength beer (beer only) is NOW available in grocery stores!  Previously only “3.2 beer” was sold which means the alcohol strength was only 3.2%.  So I could go to the liquor store and buy Blue Moon with 5.4% or be lazy and pick it up at the grocery store with 3.2%. That changed as of January 1, 2019, however, wine and spirits won’t be available in Colorado grocery stores until 2037.  So crazy, lol.
