A Few of My (New) Favorite Things

I recently indulged in this Cycles Gladiator California 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon (yes, that's right, E.!) and the wine was as lovely as the label. The website says "brooding mocha, raspberry and black cherry notes are immediately revealed, and then supported by dusty tannins and well-balanced acidity. Broad on the palate, this multifaceted wine is very approachable when consumed." I say "smooth like butta'." Even better, it's around $10 a bottle. Interesting sidenote: This wine was BANNED in Alabama because the label was deemed as being "pornographic." And that ain't no April Fool's joke. Thanks, AL, for continuing to make the South a laughing stock. Kisses.

I am all about strawberry ice cream right now for some reason. Tuesday, I bought Bruster's Strawberry Tuxedo (strawberry ice cream with white chocolate swirls and chocolate flakes) and tonight I bought this delish treat at the Publix...buttercream ice cream with strawberry swirls and shortcake chunks. The Bruster's was more "strawberry-ee" but this was tasty, as well.

I have a deep, deep love affair with liquid coffee creamer. In fact, I could skip the coffee and just drink the creamer. Or bathe in it. Or dab it behind my ears. But I digress. International Delight has come out with all these new flavas' and I am in hog heaven. I recently tried two of the Coffeehouse line of flavors--one being the white chocolate mocha--and they were very yums. These are their two new Limited Edition flavors--Sweet Buttercream and Chocolate Chip Creme Brulee. I think I cannot wait to get up in the morning. Damn skippy.

Ok, I HATE V-8 juice but LOVES the V-Fusion juice. My friend E. told me about these and they have been on BOGO sale at the Publix several times now so I have stocked up. And I feel virtuous knowing I am drinking 1 serving of fruit AND 1 serving of veggies in each glass. Because my fruit and veggie eating really sucks hard these days.

This song has haunted me for weeks. Listen, remember those who you love, go tell them.

Big weekend planned--supposed to be bee-you-tee-full here Saturday so I will be working in the yard, and Sunday we have family Easter & Birthday. Whoo-wee! Later, taters! B.

I DID get it at the DFM..congrats on the house!! PS, the juice is not on BOGO this week, but was a week or two ago, and I am sure it will be again.

Hmmm. Don’t care for chardonnay – love V8. If you enjoy salmon, but hate blue cheese I might have to come shake some sense into you!

No, Fannie, love salmon AND blue cheese!
