If it's Valentine's Day, it's time for chocolate cheese!
But this time, it's toasted!
Yes, on white bread. Don't hate.
From Aldi's, but it is just as awesome as the chocolate cheese I had last year from Trader Joe's (yes, I know there is a relationship between the two businesses).
"Specially Selected Cheddar With Chocolate, English Cheddar Cheese blended with rich dark chocolate." Sold in 6.7 oz (190g) blocks.

The Top Ten List, The Top 10 Signs That Your Dog May Be A Bad Driver.
Apparantly there is a dog rescuer in New Zealand who is training dogs to drive. Fur real. To showcase their intelligence.
Isn't that awesome? It is. It is so awesome!
I want to teach Buddy to drive. It would be great. It really would.
Until she saw a rabbit.
There's always a bunny to blame (with apologies to Jimmy Buffet), that's my dog walking motto.
90% of the times that I've lost the leash, nearly lost the leash, or been ignored when I called to Buddy off leash, there has indeed, and in fact, been a bunny rabbit to (take the) blame.
Wouldn't that be fun to report to my insurance company?
Me: My dog saw a rabbit.
Geico: And why is that a problem ma'am?
Me: She was driving.

|Banana Pecan Brown Sugar Oatmeal|
Banana Pecan Brown Sugar Oatmeal
This only makes a single serving, but you can easily double it, triple it, quadruple it...
- 1 1/4 C. Water (that's the amount of water I need at my high altitude, in my dry climate, you may only need 1 C. Water).
- Salt, Just a Pinch
- 1/2 C. Rolled Oats
- 3 TBSPS Brown Sugar
- 1 TBSP Butter
- 1 Banana
- 3 TBSPS Pecans, broken into pieces and toasted, (already toasted, or toast them (in a dry skillet) as you put the water on to boil).
In a pan appropriate for making oatmeal, bring the water and the salt to a boil. But, don't watch it, you know what they say about a watched pot! Instead, with a fork, stir together the oatmeal and the brown sugar.
Once the water is boiling, and it's not going to take long, stir in the oatmeal mixture.
While the oatmeal is boiling, slice the Banana. Have the butter and the pecans ready and waiting. Also, don't forget to stir it occasionally.
Once the oatmeal is cooked, spoonula it into a bowl. Quickly top it with the butter, the bananas, and the pecans (yes, in exactly that order).
When you're ready to eat (and don't wait long, oatmeal is better eaten warm, and sooner rather than later) stir it, and enjoy! I know I do enjoy it.
It could be added to a brunch menu. It could also be eaten as a dessert, but a bowl of oatmeal for dessert? Really?
Life is short, eat it on an otherwise busy weekday for breakfast and enjoy it.
Originally eaten on Sunday, October 16, 2011 (and on Monday, and on Tuesday, and don't bet against me eating it on Wednesday, too).

Doesn't that sound great? It does to me!
I don't have a Kindle (just the Software for PC), so I think it goes without saying that I haven't tried this, myself.

And Another Low Priced (Food, Well, Beverage, Related) Kindle Book That I Have Downloaded But Not Yet Read.
As does his, or rather, the book title: A History of The World In 6 Glasses
by Tom Standage.
Doesn't that sound fascinating? I thought so, too. And for only $3.19 (price subject to change, of course), why not? I thought so, too.
