Full Fat Delicious

Yesterday JP had some work to do at his office way out in Schaumburg, so Landon and I decided to come along and run a few errands in the suburbs. (Side note: I'm scared of moving to the suburbs. There's so much more STUFF out there. Stores, lots of stores, full of stuff we don't need but start thinking we do- and there's parking lots for your cars so you can pile the stuff inside. When I shop in the city I have to carry everything home and this greatly limits my purchase power.) Landon got to try out his Evenflo Titan in JP's car while we were stuck in traffic for an hour and he seemed more comfortable than in his Britax. I'm thinking about making JP switch with me.

Anyway, while we were at the office "helping" JP bind some books for a meeting, I opened his desk drawer to discover original Lays Barbecue chips. I haven't had a full fat chip in years- it's baked only for me. I switched forever ago and had myself totally convinced that I didn't like the regular kind. But I was hungry, so I tried one, and oh my goodness, it was delicious. So light, so crispy, so full of barbecue flavor! I immediately ate 50 more. I tried my Barbecue Baked Lays when I got home and they were SO not the same. Then I ate a giant slice of triple chocolate mousse cake leftover from our sushi and champagne Valentine's dinner. If you add that to the creamy corn chowder soup I had at California Pizza Kitchen, and the Mike and Ikes I ate with breakfast, it was a full fat delicious kind of day.

  2. So funny! Hannah just started on the YoBaby yogurt- and it is full-fat whole milk. It is the most delicious yogurt ever- my non fat yogurt is just not the same.

  3. HA! That's too funny. And Joy is too right about the YoBaby yogurt - yummy!

    Yeah, don't move to suburbia. I did, long story, and even though I'm finding that I really like a lot of my neighbors, I hate it. I hate not being able to walk anywhere - ANYWHERE. I hate not having any trees. I hate that everyone else seems to think it's normal to drive to the other side of the subdivision, a whopping five-minute walk. Right, your blog, I'll end the rant. You get the idea. ;)

  4. Ha! I've been eating more chocolate the past few days ... I totally had a similar day yesterday!!

    And suburbs ... I grew up in them so I shouldn't be so horrified by them. But I am, somehow.

  9. Mmm... sushi! Reminds me, there's a Todai restaurant in Schaumburg, the all-you-can-eat sushi buffet. We went to the one in Waikiki and it was fabulous. We keep meaning to try the one in the suburbs, but whenever we're there, we spend the whole time in Naperville. And my sister-in-law doesn't eat sushi. :(

    I started eating real food when pregnant since I didn't have any appetite anyway. Now I'm having a hard time switching back to the fake stuff! Real chips are so tasty! So is real sour cream, real ice cream, and real cream cheese!
