We've gotten good Clementines, and not so good. The best ones are so easy to peel, and so sweet, the not so good ones were really hard to peel and sour. I forgot about them too, and tis the season!

I've made gorp for DH to take on car trips to conferences or on bike rides; I usually add wasabi peas as well - Craisins, peanuts, M&Ms and wasabi peas - yummy.

My hubby is just like you. He can't open anything without finishing it. My kids call him the cookie monster
my DH is just like yours but we call him the human garbage can

But give me a big peice of sour dough slather is with liverpaste, and sliced green onions, emmmm,or in the summer that same bread with a fat slice of tomato,s&p evoo and white balsamic or just the tomato and thin layer of mayo.

Pringles and potato chips with ridges and French onion dip are two things I cannot have in the house. I will eat them till they're gone.

Another thing I can't stop eating when I open them is calamata olives! The really big juicy ones and green olives stuffed with pimiento.

i'm with you on the gorp, but i have to protest that any additions make it trail mix. gorp is gorp, from a scouting perspective.

in either case, i'm addicted as well. m&ms, craisins, various nuts or dried fruits (except banana chips, yuk) toasted coconut, etc., etc..

on topic, i have a hard time stopping when steak is available. especially for things like london broil. i could just sit at a table and eat steak so long as it was in front of me. i've always wanted to try the big texan challenge at that place that serves a 72 oz. steak in amarillo, i think.

same goes for buffalo wings. or oysters. i know that i could do a few dozen of each. (not at tbe same time, of course. you know what i mean)

I found some yogurt covered cashew nuts to put in the kids lunchboxes today. Had to stop myself from eating them all myself lol! They're fab!
