In a jumblebumble world, sometimes the best thing to do is close your eyes and focus on the little fleeting glimpse-glances of life.
And if those little fleeting glimpse-glances are food-related? All the better.
Remember when the fabulous Ricki sent me an incredible care package of deliciousness? I finally allowed myself to try the Sweets From The Earth vegan double chocolate cookies. They reminded me in a lovely nostalgic way of the cookies mum used to pack in my lunchbox, and my many-allergies-navigating grandma liked them too. Nicely crunchy and generous with the chocolate chips, they were. (It seems these cookies turn me into Yoda.)
When I was at Prahan Market with Heidi (who just got married oh my squee yay happy happy smiley love love hurah!), we were assailed by a two-faced vendor who spruiked his gluten-free goods to us when he thought we wanted them, then ranted viciously about all the gluten-avoiding fad-obsessed “liars” out there when we told him that we eat gluten.
The ranting was worth it, though, because Heidi bought the above Roasted Almond Muesli from the stall and then turned and handed the packet to me, without my ever having realised that she’d withstood the man’s evilness just to procure me this gift. Heidi, you make my heart soar. The muesli was truly wonderful, so soft and fresh. And it makes a good thick bircher with coconut flour, soy milk, and fresh blackberries too.
Did I buy these Tomato Sauce Pringles?
Did I eat them?
Were they good?
Oh heck no.
These green beans have a love that is timeless. A love that binds them together both on and beyond this earthly plane. Don’t you no never never try to break them apart, y’all. They have a love that is timeless.
Inside were two bars of Lindt 85%.
Mike, thank you! I’ve been using these bars as my break-in-case-of-stress-emergency stash all week.
Oh no you don’t, Back To Nature. I’ve had enough of your hurtful games.
Except, well, I kind of do a little bit want to try the cinnamon heart cereal. And I can’t see any incorrect punctuation or grammar on that particular box, so maybe I’m allowed?
(How about getting your energy from, say, an apple? With peanut butter? And sufficient sleep? Yes, I and my insomniac ways are in no position to harp on about the latter, but still. You get my point.)
Warm just-baked vanilla craisin muffins with Nuttelex (or butter), on the other hand?
So many kinds of right.
