some of you will think i’ve lost it. others will (hopefully) think i’m thrifty. i’m toasting and grinding asher’s brown rice cereal. no joke. it’s the feeding the whole family book. they make it seem so normal to toast rice and whiz it up, and it is quite a bit cheaper than buying the boxed stuff. i don’t see myself doing this for too long, either, as at seven months asher still shows little interest in solid foods and will hopefully bypass much of the pureed food stage. here’s hoping he likes it.
so while i am saving a pretty penny on baby food, i evidently see no problem in shelling out good money on chocolate for myself. the company vosges: haute chocolat sucks me in with their packaging. the mo’s bacon bar was a swing-and-a-miss if you recall, but i had high hopes for their creole bar. it was good but eerily similiar to hershey’s reserve dark chocolate with cacao nibs and the hershey’s is a heck of a lot cheaper. and on a final note, evidently there are many people who do, in fact, love the chocolate/bacon combo because you can now purchase your very own mo’s bacon bar in the form of a flying pig. i’m hard pressed to find a creepier way to spend twelve dollars on something that is 1.2 oz.
