Why didn't I think of closing that bedroom door earlier?
Oh my, that looks good CG. I haven't had good old fashioned stove-top popcorn in a few years - now I want to make some! The cheesy seasoning sounds really good, too.

Today's snack was a handful of wavy potato chips dipped in a scoop of peanut butter while I watched a movie.

Peanut butter and potato chips? Hmm, sounds interesting. My Mom would sometimes use chips to scoop ice cream up from her bowl. Pretzels, too. Now you can buy ice cream with pretzels in it.

You actually ate that? You are a braver person than I am.

If I saw that on my plate, I'd run out into traffic. I guess you could say I'm not very adventurous about eating anything different.

Well, to get myself on topic here, I was going to make chocolate chip cookies, but I got lazy, so I'm just eating the chocolate chips now. I figure its healthier, since I would eat the chocolate chips anyway and this way I'm not eating all the sugar in the cookies or the raw cookie dough.

It's an acquired taste, I suppose. I like little bits of it accompanied with other things. Cheese, pickled things, bread, meats, etc..cold wine helps wash it all down..

I'd have the wine. I figure if I have to acquire a taste for something, it probably isn't worth the work.

I'm taking a page from K-Girl's book and cleaning out our freezer. Not that we're likely to move anytime soon (dang), but I really do need to move out the old. This ice cream wasn't old, but it sure is good! It certainly will be ONLY a treat in our house, though, since it's $6 for a pint. At $1.50 per 1/2 cup serving (and trust me, that's plenty filling with as rich as this stuff is), that figures to 2 cents per calorie. Go ahead, do the math. Worth. Every. Calorie.

I didn't have to acquire the taste. I loved octopus the first time I tried it. So, if you ever have the chance for a little taste, go for it.
