Five Favorites: Food, shoes and chicken suits.

1.

I have foregone my beloved Cardini's Caesar in search of something more healthful. Most light dressings tastes...light.  So I use twice as much.  But Trader Joe's Reduced Fat Cilantro dressing is rich and creamy and delicious.  Also, a serving size is two tablespoons, not one like some of those sneaky dressings.

2.  More shoes from Payless.

I have recently bought these ballet flats by Kenneth Cole.  

But then I saw these at Payless.



Believe it or not, the Payless shoes are more comfortable.  So back to the store went Kenneth and back in my wallet went $40. 

3.  Well, not really, because I have lots of feet to shod around here.  

Lucy and I both got these too, because they are both comfortable and adorable.


Susan got them in this style.


By golly, I think they look an awful lot like these flats from Ken.


BTW, if you're thinking, "Oh, she downgraded for all man-made materials,"  I'll let you in on a lil' secret.  Kenneth Cole is using "faux leather" for his patent leather too.  In fact, patent leather is almost never real leather.  Jill's patent leather Stride Rite mary janes that I saved for her for fourteen years, all man-made materials.  And those were muy expensive, even by todays standards.  

4.  More food from Trader Joe's.


We had a pizza night, wherein we (sort of) made our own pizzas.  This fresh dough from Trader J's is only $1.19 a bag.  A bag makes a medium-ish pizza, which only serves two people around here, so I made three pizzas.  

I also bought their fresh pizza sauce, but I felt it had a metallic tang.  I'll have to try Cari's sauce recipe next time.  The pepperoni I bought there was verrry niiiice, very 'picy 'lami, as Jill said.  

After reading this blogger's take on how to make Trader Joe pizza, I took his advice and cleaned out the fridge on my pie.  I used the rest of a smallish log of goat cheese with herbs, sliced mushrooms, red bell pepper strips, fresh spinach, and 1 cup of shredded mozzarella.  Yes, my pie was the best.

5.  Blake Shelton, Jimmy Fallon, Ron Swanson in chicken suits, singing Ho, Hey.  What's not to love?

  2. I have the same shoes, although the Dexter ones come in the same nude color. I was wondering if they would be more comfortable! Great minds think alike!

  3. If you post one more thing featuring food from TJ that I will have to go get and try for myself, I'm going to block you from all my social media interactions. You and TJ are making me fat(ter).
