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.
