I can’t seem to concentrate today and settle in to write a blog post. I keep checking Instagram and getting up to eat French silk pie. Tippins, French silk, as a matter of fact. Did everyone have a good Easter? Ours was good! It was a combo Easter/birthday celebration. It was kind of crazy, per usual; lots of kiddos running around, Easter bunny costumes, Passover face mask-wearing.
I thought I’d share a few random things with you today. A few months ago I bought a bunch of Chocolove on sale and now I’m addicted. I have to eat a little dark chocolate every day now. My favorite is the salted almond butter. Swoon. It’s soo good. Do you have a favorite brand of chocolate? I also love Askinosie!
Also, you guys, I did some damage at Trader Joe’s the other day. I spent $75 on stuff I didn’t really need, such as cookies and wine. Since I live in Springfield now I don’t get to go very often, and I guess I went a little nuts. Are you loving anything new from TJ’s?
Oh! I made cocktails in a can on Easter using coconut La Croix, dark rum, mango-lime puree, garnished with fresh mint, kiwi and pineapple. They were good! Also, this would be a great mocktail as well – just leave out the rum. But what fun is that?
Lastly, I feel like I go to Montreal every single week. The only enjoyment I get is from the sesame bagels at the airport. They’re sooooo good! I get a bag to take with me and then I buy one to eat there, and they toast it for me and slather it in butter. It gives me chills thinking about it. Ooooh. Montreal’s bagel game is strong.
