I ate healthy this weekend

Wait a second.  Nope, nope I didn't.  Unless mini beer brat corn dogs, pitchers of mimosas, petite confectionery and cakes, rainbow sherbet and Trader Joe's cookie butter count as healthy.  But boy were they delicious.  Houston just got its first Trader Joe's and someone was kind enough to make me a gift of a solid jar of Cookie Butter, which I've never tasted before.  It's almost like a foodie miracle - taking two incredibly delicious things and mashing them together.  I never thought that I would be able to find something that could replace Nutella in my heart but this really does.  You can drizzle, smear and smother anything with this goodness and it'll taste like gingerbread cookies and Christmas.  And that is alright by me.  Excuse me while I dunk my entire hand.

On Sunday, I picked up some spam from the grocery store in preparation for my spamerific creation.  Did you know that one jar of the stuff costs $2.50?!  That is pretty expensive, considering it is meat in a can and the expiration date is three years away - why did no one warn me?
Bonus round: The nonprofit organization that I'm involved with is looking for charities with an annual budget between $5 and 50 million to evaluate.  Readers, are there any specific charities or causes that you find interesting or would like to see covered?

  1. I've never even heard of cookie butter, and like you I doubt it can replace my love for Nutella. I'll try it should I come across it!

  5. No trader joe's around here, so I'll live vicariously through you. But oh boy, I wish I could forget about my gestational diabetes and eat without worrying about how healthy, how many carbs, about whether it has all the nutrients I need for this baby without all the extra sugar. *sigh*

  7. What a delicious weekend. Better than Nutella? Wow, I need to get to Trader Joe's. I don't remember spam costing much, but I did buy the half can, just in case it has anything in common with scrapple. :)

  9. Cookie butter?! Never heard of it and it sure doesn´t exist in my country, but I´d love to try! :-D

  10. What?! Something that rivals Nutella? I don't believe it! As you may now realize, you should never open with food and then expect people to get something besides food . . . :) As for causes, there are so many, but especially dear to my heart are those that maybe don't garner as much attention: mental illness and sex trafficking, for instance.

  12. Speculoos are really popular in Europe! They're little biscuits you get with tea and coffee and are just delicious, I made sure to grab a big pack on our way out of Belgium. I didn't know Trader Joe's had a Speculoos product! Now I'm off to find it...
