Friday 5: Food Me Once; Food Me Twice

March 24, 2017

Hello, refreshed blog! Let’s do a Friday 5! Remember those? I do!

This week’s topic is “Food Me Once; Food Me Twice.” Speaking of which, I’m going back and cleaning up categories and tags. So far I have 55 posts with the “diet” tag. You’d think I’d be better at it by now.

The top 10 tags so far are: Holidays, Vacation, Work, Disney, Humor, Diet, Christmas, Max, Divorce, NJ

I still have 543 posts to go through and assign categories for. Hooray!

I likely paid $45 for this Disney meal.

1. What do you like on your frozen yogurt?
I’m pretty basic. Hot fudge, chocolate chips, sno-caps, jimmies, and a splash of caramel are my standbys. Occasionally I’ll squirt hot peanut butter sauce or marshmallow sauce in there too.
2. How do you feel about hot breakfast cereals?
I love Cream of Wheat/Farina type cereals, but they are a million calories for a serving that I’d find acceptable (sighs, tags this post “diet” too). I’m a huge fan of oatmeal with a spoon of peanut butter stirred into it for some added protein.
3. What did you last put brown sugar in or on?
I made chocolate chip cookies about a month ago. Otherwise, I don’t add sugar to anything.
4. What’s a food item you willingly overpay for?
Any food at a Disney park. One hot dog? TAKE MY $10. Oh, to top that, sometimes I’ll drink Starbucks AT Disney, so that’s paying Disney food prices on top of an already price-inflated drink.
5. What did you last add vinegar to?
My kitchen sink drain, along with some baking soda for a drain volcano!

This week kicked my ass. We have eleventy-hundred projects going on at work at the same time, and I haven’t been this frazzled since the C-P days. And I had my yearly appointment with Doc Ladyparts on Wednesday, which always puts me in A Mood. (Next up are a mammogram and a skin check in April. Wheeee getting old is so much fun!)

This weekend I’ll likely just wrap up in a quilt and retag posts. And find a font size that doesn’t make my blog look like it was checked it out from the Large Print section of the library.

    My eyes are getting bad in my old age. The larger the font, the better. I ctrl+ most of my regular reads anyway. Ugh.

    I never considered what Starbucks might cost at an amusement park. The thought is…amusing.

    It’s nice that you finally migrated. Congratulations!

    Peanut butter in oatmeal — I’ll have to try that!

    So why does your brother put gummi bears on his ice cream? Where does that come from?! It’s so gross.
