Eating healthy

This is a cake that looks like veggies.

That totally counts.

Pizza pie in your eye

I’ve heard of throwing pizza dough in the air…

…but throwing pizza as a punch?

A Florida man threw a hot slice of pizza at his roommate, who called the cops.

And they arrested him.

Since this incident occurred in Florida, it’s really not all that surprising. What is surprising is that the guy didn’t eat the slice when he threw it at him.

When life gives you lemons, buddy. It is pizza, after all.

Liquid lunch

People magazine is all about the ‘boozy popsicle‘ today —

watermelon mojito pops‘Boozy’ as in popular popsicle flavors spiked with alcohol — like the watermelon mojito pops garnished with mint pictured at the left.

Looks cool and refreshing, yes…and perhaps a bit lethal for the younger set.

But, I’m sorry.

Every time I hear the phrase ‘boozy popsicle,’ I think —

What a perfect stripper name.

Or maybe even the name of a band (depending on what kind of music they play). Let’s not forget that one, folks.

It’s a keeper.

Topping tip

I read a great article today —

How to Turn Your Favorite Snack Food into Seasoning

The author recommends buying a cheap grinder at your local grocery store — perhaps when buying salt or pepper — and when it’s empty, placing small, broken-up chunks of your favorite snack foods inside.  Then use them as seasoning over appetizers, main dishes, desserts — you name it.

Voila — junk food seasoning.

grinderOf course, my first thought was Cheetos.

(If you’ve read this blog before, this should come as no surprise.)

We already know that Cheetos dust is super yummy eaten right off your fingers. Imagine it sprinkled on any of your favorite foods that already pair well with cheese…like popcorn.

Now you can take your Cheetos seasonings with you.  It’s certainly more portable than regular cheese since it doesn’t require refrigeration.

There’s enough preservatives in Cheetos to outlast us all.

Yo quiero Taco Bell

I don’t eat much fast food, and it’s not because I’m a health nut.

Far from it.

It’s just my favorite fast food restaurant, Taco Bell, isn’t in my neighborhood…thank goodness.

Why is the Bell my fav?

Well, I’ve never liked hamburgers, so that eliminates most other chains. Mexican food I love.

And after seeing this sign, I appreciate the Bell even more. Chalupas and a sense of humor?

Where do I sign up?

Holy guacamole!

Off you go, avocado.

According to New York Magazine, the drought in California is making you more scarce.  Which means you’re getting mega-pricey. And restaurants may be less likely to include you on every dish on their menu.

Hallelujah.

You see, I am the rare breed that doesn’t like avocados.  To my tongue, they are bland mush, and I prefer not to add bland mush to my salad or sandwich.

I am concerned about the water shortage. It’s a very serious situation, and especially on Earth Day, we need to stop and think about ways to be more frugal in our water consumption.

But fewer avocados on the menu?

That’s my silver lining,  peeps.

Hitting bottom

Although today was an exception, the weather has been much warmer of late. So I’m packing away my winter clothing and putting  the teapot on a high shelf.

But this infuser makes me want to pull out the English Breakfast one more time:

My daily cuppa seems much more exotic with this fellow exploring the depths of my favorite mug…

…or iced tea pitcher, perhaps?
