Grit Chips, Cronuts, And Christmas Mint M&M's With An Expiration/Sellby Date Of 8/2014

 This is what happens when your husband goes to the store without you - Grit Chips, in the Sweet Heat Flavor, or course.  Not a Frito and not quite a Tortilla Chip.
 This is my first ever Cronut - purported to be a Donut (a good thing) made from the dough of a Croissant (a better thing).  Just in case you wonder how they are, I couldn't get a picture taken fast enough to get one without a bite out of it already.  Luckily they are too expensive at $3.50 each for me to get addicted.  In the background is my sweet son-in-law, Mike with his more healthy choice (understanding that all things are relative) a giant Ham and Cheese Croissant.
 All those flakey layers, deep fried and glazed!
 I don't know what possessed me but I chose to look at the expiration date before tossing out these Christmas Mint M&M's - and guess what?  They were not even close to expired.  Since I was on my own for dinner last night, I had a large glass of milk and a hand-full of these.
And this morning I got up early and ran the rest down the disposal, because if I can't get any taller for the Summer Wedding pictures from Nick and Kelsey's wedding, I should at least try not to look shorter.


  1. Dear Beryl, you are always good for a chuckle. I am hereby declaring the Cronut one of the most dangerous foods ever to come to my attention. Will avoid like the plague. Looking forward to the wedding pics of that happy couple.

  2. Hi Beryl. I have never heard of grit chips and one would think hey would be available here, of all places, where we have a love affair with our grits! Those counts look wonderful. But the price, ouch! When's the wedding?

  3. Oh, I had a tummy ache from just reading the title. It should be illegal to use the word 'healthy' in this post! I wouldn't need to flush the M&Ms, but god save me from Cronuts!

  4. You do make me laugh Beryl! I'm not sure if I should but I'm loving the sound of a Cronut!! (My sweet tooth!)
    And we need to get you some very high heels for the wedding.....

  5. Gosh they're a great looking couple. Would Cronuts be shortening? hope not because I need to find out where I can buy them here, i don't have much of a sweet tooth, but love me donuts of all shapes and sizes. Keep on eating the sweeties and just get a pair of nude slingback with a heel for the wedding photos, all the lengthening you need.
