All Sorts Of Random




I have selfish reasons for making peanut butter and jelly english muffins for other people:

1) It’s bonus time with an open jar of peanut butter 2) I like to lick the pb&j remnants from the knife after spreading them both on the muffin.

Remember when I agreed to allow my son the freedom to select any sugar cereal he wanted?

Here is this month’s box:

chocolately crunch cereal

Why doesn’t Target sell Waffle Crisp? That would have been my choice.

My Dessert of the Month Club delivery for August arrived yesterday!


I get so excited anticipating what the dessert delivery will be.

Yesterday afternoon, a big box of soft cookies arrived on my doorstep (chocolate white chip and snickerdoodle).

June’s Dessert Of The Month

July’s Dessert Of The Month

Packed in the box with each dessert is a newsletter which includes recipes and random information like this:

most popular desserts

I sort of agree with the rankings here but would probably list chocolate cake first, then chocolate chip cookies, then brownies and then fudge. Cupcakes would need to move up on my list as well to at least number five, if not higher.

Ice cream is really not in my top five, does that shock you?

In fact, I feel guilty for not showing you my son’s epic sundae from Saturday night even though I showed you mine so here it is.

Massive and beautiful, right? Well, I couldn’t look at the photo for days because the thought of it was making me sick.

Let me explain.

I love dessert and definitely have a separate stomach for chocolate cake and cookies but ice cream is another story.

I can’t really tolerate full fat ice creams very well without feeling icky and sick which is why I load up on toppings and usually go for the low fat versions or frozen yogurt instead.

When I saw my son’s brownie sundae arrive, I had to have a few spoonfuls which, combined with my sundae (which was made with lighter ice cream), put me over the edge and left me not wanting to look at or eat ice cream for a really long time.

I knew I shouldn’t have had any of it but the brownies and hot fudge were calling me and I couldn’t help myself. The worst part is that I DESPISE chocolate ice cream so the after effect was that much worse and really not worth it.

I made Michele’s maple balsamic reduction recipe last night.

Instead of drizzling it over the suggested salmon, I used it on the chicken I made for my son and to flavor my brussels sprouts and roasted frozen vegetables.


Her recipe is super easy and delicious – definitely recommend it.

If I find myself unable to pay for my son’s Bar Mitzvah, it will be because I spent all of my money on the above Japanese sweet potatoes and the below kombucha which are both becoming expensive habits.


I learned a new word the other day and I am currently obsessed with it.


It’s like a really fancy/SAT-sounding way of explaining myself without sounding rude because most people won’t even know what misanthrope means.

I don’t avoid human society though, just pants when I can which is why this has always been my life quote.

I wish I had known about this quote back in the day when I needed to select a quote for my high school yearbook picture.
