heaven in a jar

First things first. Before I tell you all about my most recent heavenly food discovery, I have to take a second and tell you about one of my favorite blogs. Jenna writes about healthy living and eating, and I just love love love reading her blog. It’s a teeny bit addicting. (AND she mentioned my little blog today in one of her posts!! Thanks, Jenna!)

Now, on to serious business. I have found a new favorite condiment/food group: White Chocolate Wonderful peanut butter from Peanut Butter & Co. WHITE CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER, people!! I stumbled across this little jar at Central Market last week, and decided to give it a try…

As you can see, I’ve given it more than just a try. (And I’m not ashamed.)

Moral of the story: you should try this stuff. Because it’s amazing. I love it in steel cut oats mashed up with bananas and brown sugar… and I love it straight out of the jar on a spoon. Say it with me: mmmmmmmmm!

god bless america

Things I love about the 4th of July:

  • Barbecue food and fruity desserts
  • Family time
  • Fireworks
  • 4th of July sales at the mall (my mom and I definitely tore a few of THOSE up today!)
  • A day off from work and 42nd Street rehearsal
  • Patriotic songs
  • ONE MONTH until my birthday.  Yes, that’s correct.  ONE.  MONTH.

To help us all celebrate this obviously fabulous day, here is my all-time favorite version of “God Bless America,” sung by tenor Ronan Tynan at Yankee Stadium.  Enjoy!

now, really…

Here’s a little riddle for you:

What’s red or yellow, makes a “blink blink” noise, and could save your life?

Call me old fashioned, but USE YOUR TURN SIGNALS, PEOPLE!!

(Phew!  I guess driving 85 miles every day to work and rehearsal has caused a bit of pent-up road rage.)

the only way to start the day

I’m 100% positive that if we all started our mornings with a pep talk like this one, the world would be a better place.

Just makes you smile, doesn’t it?
