Shopping Around the World

This month for Shopping Around the World, we are going to focus on go to desserts/treats.

You know for those days when you need a pick me up or you are feeling down, what is the one thing you go to for comfort?

I know we shouldn’t but we do.  We can all admit that from time to time, right?

Well this month is an easy one for mom.  Wait until you see!  Take it away mom –


When I think of go to comfort food as in dessert, I think of one thing.  Pepperidge Farm cakes.  I was introduced to Pepperidge Farm cakes when I was a young child.  It was something that we always kept in the freezer.  You know back in the day when you wanted people to drop in for visits  and they did unexpectedly – LOL.  These days, we don’t want anyone coming by unless you call weeks in advance and make an appointment.  Times have changed, right?  Well in the day, when unexpected friends dropped by my mom would get out the Pepperidge Farm cake, make a pot of coffee and visit.

These days, I still try to keep these in the freezer if not for just the memories they once brought to me.  Anytime you need some sugar comfort, cut you a slice off of the cake and enjoy a little time just being.  These Pepperidge Farm cakes come in a different variety – vanilla layer cake, red velvet cake, lemon layer cake, key lime cake, coconut layer cake, chocolate fudge layer cake and this one – rich golden layer cake.  And personally, the golden layer and key lime cakes are my all time favorites – LOL.

And the best thing about these cakes – they are cheap.  Really on average they are about $4.00 a cake.  BUT you can find them on sale two for $5.00!  Now can you make two cakes that cheap?  So pardon me my friends, this cake in the picture was opened last weekend.  It’s calling my name to be finished.  The next time you are in your local market, see if you can find one of these and try them.  You won’t regret it.

Why I Gained Weight This Week

img_6322

Okay I’m a big girl – okay not “BIG” girl but big in the way of I can admit failure from last week and not losing weight.  You see there was the Red Velvet Oreo cookies that I found in the store.  Red Velvet not being one of my favorite flavors but the hub unit’s favorite.  Of course I bought him a bag – what kind of wife would I be not too, right?

So I call him and tell him that I have something special for him that night.  Of course he is a guy with a one track mind so I have to tell him no not that – ha!  But something he will love more – something that is his favorite.

So I hurriedly rush home to give him his bag of Oreo’s.

At the same time we bit into our cookies.  That’s when we heard the angels sing.  Oh my heavens – these things are fantastic.  Not overly sweet but you can taste the Red Velvet and the cream cheese.  Yes we were hooked and – lowers head – no we didn’t stop at just one.  You can tell by looking at the size of my butt.  It is now the size of Texas.

And shakes head.  I would like to say that the madness stopped there but I would be lying.

Oh no.  That’s when I brought out exhibit 2 from my purchases earlier this day.  Chili Nut M&M’s.  Father, I have sinned.

Let me tell you something my friends.  If you see this in the store, buy them.  They freeze well… I’ve heard.  They are just like regular peanut M&M’s.  They taste wonderful…however, when you swallow you find a little heat coming your way.  Not so much that you run for cover to drink a gallon of milk but enough to say “Hey, welcome to the party.”

So you see my friends, I know why I didn’t lose weight this past week.  Admittance is the first thing, right?  Here’s to a better week this week.

Shopping with Mom/Dad

  Oh my friends.  Last weekend during mom/dad’s shopping marathon of running errands, they did make it to the grocery store.  Now mom, she is a coupon clipping queen and sticks to a budget.  In fact, daddy tells her that she can make Mr. Abraham Lincoln squeal when she is in a grocery store.  And hey with your coupon clipping, there are times that the store literally pays her for getting some things.

With those savings, she told daddy (who has a wickedly large sweet tooth) that he get one item of sweet stuff.  My humans what can I say – they try to eat better where they can.  That means something, right?

Well she asked him what he wanted and he said donuts.  So off they trot after doing the shopping so she can let him know his choices.  That’s when he picks this – Tastykake Red Velvet Mini Donuts.  Yep you read that right.  RED VELVET donuts.  Dad was smitten right there and then on aisle 5 at our grocery store.  Mom thought for a moment that she was going to have to give him a moment.  Rolls piggy eyes.

Well dad got his sacred donuts and finally brought his package out today.  Oh my piggy heavens.  He even gave me one.  Heaven.  There is the best word to describe those sacred little morsels.  He ate a few and then put the package back up.  I call that restrain.  I think I would have eaten the entire bag.  Have you seen these in your local grocery store?  If you do, I give them three hooves up… I would say four hooves but I would tumble over – snorts.
