I've been making popsicles all day (so far: pluot; watermelon; blueberry-yogurt-honey), and as I am fully aware that I have A) a slight tendency towards silly kitchen gadgets, and B) a complete addiction to frozen treats, I figured that before I freak out and buy one, I'd ask you, O Collective Brain: SHOULD I?
...Josh and I have mourned the demise of the Late Night Jalapeno Popper Doritos. They were super-chemical-y, true, but they were also strangely addictive, and we've never found another Special Edition Dorito that compares.
They aren't at all chemical-y, and the flavor is more subtle than the Doritos (I mean, DUH, that's kind of a low bar), and the texture is SO NICE because in addition to being all multigrain-y, there's also some chia seeds and other good stuff crammed in there... anyway, we polished off the entire bag on the way home from the grocery store, and every couple of minutes, one of us would turn to the other and say, "THESE ARE REALLY GOOD."
Seriously, for the entire twenty minute drive home, we pretty much only uttered variations of that sentence.
But just in case you're thinking we've suddenly gotten all classy or something, we also brought home a bag of the Lays Chicken & Waffles chips, too.
PS. NO, I DID NOT GET PAID TO WRITE THIS. I just really liked the chips A LOT.
I only had white chocolate chips in the house -- the horror! -- so I used them instead of fancy good chocolate. But as Josh hasn't stopped eating them since I took 'em out of the oven, I haven't heard any complaints.
This is also excellent*, though I suspect I'll be the only one to eat it, since SOMEONE "refuses to eat things with tails". (I've never seen him turn down shrimp, but whatever. More for me.)
I always eat so much better on days off.
And by better, I mean More Deliciously.
*I used cheddar, though, and more than doubled it. And asiago instead of the parmesan, since that's what was in the fridge.
*They were awesome. Though, in the future, rather than buy the bag of Heath Bar Bits n the baking aisle, I'll just buy some Heath Bars and smash them up. Because the bag of pieces? Was mostly dust. BOOOOOO!
I made a few minor changes -- used olive oil instead of butter (didn't measure, though), and used two 10 oz. boxes of frozen spinach because that's what I had on hand -- but basically, I made it as written.
Also, I have two crockpots going -- one with a pot roast, and one with baked beans. Excessive, possibly, but we seem to be settling into winter quite cheerfully! (Supposedly, there might be snow tonight...!)
