9.5.11



work continues to be entertaining, on saturday i think i met the real life todd packer. a few days ago a lady walked in and asked: "what type of ducks are out there by the river? the ones that look like geese?" me: "geese." 


in other news: i made homemade lar-bars today. thanks to sheena (best food blog ever, guys) and thanks to the bulk section at winco. WINCO = washington, idaho, nevada, colorado and oregon. sorry arizona, but at least you have fresh & easy and trader joes. maybe they could change it to wincoa? but it's pretty much the poor mans rich mans version of food city. any random ingredient / food you've never heard of can be found there. i have this love/hate relationship with winco. if you've been, you know exactly what i mean.  

anyway. they are good. like, really good. i made the mexican and peanut butter version. the consistency was a little off on mine, so i added 1/2 TBS of honey. and i added a handful of dark chocolate chips to both because we're not that healthy. tomorrow i'm making strawberry leather, because i'm 5 years old.

yep. it's random. i've only been once, but i get the love/hate.

as for fresh n' easy. it's one of things i miss most from my az experience. it really was fresh and easy!

Chelsea said...

never heard of winco, i almost puked when i tried a larbar, and i LOVE fruit leather. I eat like 5 a day and call that my fruit servings.

Ash said...

Lar-bars? What are lar-bars. We have something called earth fare. Exorbitant prices and lots of hipsters. Waa waa.

sheena said...

yay! glad you liked them!

I TOTALLY know what you mean about winco....I absolutely hate it until I'm inside, scooping something crazy out of their 1 billion bulk bins...mmm...bulk bins.

Rayla said...

Oh my goodness I miss WINCO! I was just thinking about how much I miss the bulk food section yesterday. If there is one in Utah now, maybe there is hope for AZ!

communikate. said...

but really.. can you teach me how to take sweet pics like this? i should just take a photog class. all the iso, white balance etc.. terms are lost on me.

Mallory Camille said...

ha ha "geese." Let's have a five years old club together, eh? I'll bring chocolate milk:)

Mandy said...

We chose to live in our current condo because of its proximity to Winco. Not joking.
