Some things

1.  While Dennis was in Utah last week, I discovered this cereal I really like. 
I didn't even tell Den about it, but he found it in the cupboard his first night back.
He liked it so much that he went on a hunt the next day to buy another box of it. 
He likes to eat regular Raisin Bran for a goodnight snack. But now he says he likes this one much better.
I found it at Trader Joes, but Dennis found some at Savemart, our corner grocery store. 


2. Thanks to my friend Rebecca, I learned about this glass spritzer which I fill with olive oil.
So goodbye to Pam spray and her friends, diglcerides dimythel, silicone, and propellant.
No more spraying my cake pans in the garage.


3. I've learned a great use for some of those laminate samples I still have.
They make excellent coasters for our glasses of water we take with us around the house.
The back has regular flooring underlay attached, so no scratching furniture.
The samples are less than $1. each at Lowes and Home Depot. 


4. We found these at Costco over the weekend.
It is so rare for them to carry the organic peaches.
Don't these look wonderful!


5. And for some reason, this cartoon made me laugh.

Hope you are having a wonderful Monday!
It's a bright and sunny 78' here.

Where did you purchase the glass spritzer? I'd love something like that for my olive oil. I hate using the pressurized spray oils.

Hi Cynthia! ...I just put a search on amazon for I think, Glass spritzer, and came up with it. Not sure if it's the same one my friend got, but it works for me.

I want that spay bottle. That cartoon is cute.

Good ideas. Want to try the cereal. How much sugar does it have? What is the size of the floor sample? Lots of "food" for thought. Love, Dad and Susan

P.S. Made your Tortilla Soup Recipe today. Still as good as the first time. Makes enough to share--I like that the most.

I love how you called ita " goodnight snack". My mom used to call our snacks a goodnight snack...that made me smile...I haven't heard that in YEARS!

Ammy...Must be a generational thing. Your Mom is probably close to my age :)

Susan...The cereal has 12 grams of sugar per 3/4 cup...uh oh, no wonder it's so good. But I think they include the raisins in those grams of sugar. It also has 8 grs of fiber and 6 grs of protein.

The floor samples are about 3 1/2 by 5 inches. I like them because they don't stick to your glass like some coasters. I have plenty...do you want me to bring you a few?
