More red, white and blue happiness for your Fourth of July celebrations!
Do any of you use Safeway’s “Just-for-U” program/app? I always forget about it until I’m mostly done with my shopping. Then I’m standing in the aisle, trying to get service on my phone so I can check if anything I’m already purchasing has a coupon. Occasionally, instead of a coupon, I find a freebie. “Mini-birthday party…aisle 5.” I know the purpose of these giveaways is to get you hooked on some new product, but I don’t care. Free stuff is free stuff. I’ve had a bag of Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix hanging out in my pantry thanks to Just-for-U and figured I’d bake up some delightful mouthfuls of deliciousness with it. These fruity lemon cheesecake cookie cups are sweet and creamy with a little cookie crunch. Yum. Yum.
In the past several weeks I made two monumentally bad choices. Probably more, but these two will probably haunt me the rest of my life. The first mistake was trying salt n’ pepper pistachios for the first time. Please hold your judgement until you find out the other thing I’ve never had before. Pistachios pale in comparison. I think since I first cracked one of those salty nuts I’ve taken down an average of a pound of them a day. No exaggeration. I’ve blown thru three 5 pound bags of those evil snacks in about two weeks. Fifteen pounds of nuts? That’s crazy! I just can’t get enough of them.
