I poured my coffee out of my travel mug and into a real one this morning…
…just because my car wouldn’t start and I had to wait for AAA to come fix it, which they could do [after I first called Papa Smart because by some skewed logic I thought he could remedy the situation—FROM PENNSYLVANIA (?)]…
…just because Mama Smart renews my membership for me every year.
*As I look at this photo, I realize it’s actually called Cap’n Crunch’s Peanut Butter Crunch, but who has ever called it that? Just because it’s ‘official’ doesn’t make it right.
Speaking of cereal, I buy Life just because I think the crumblies at the bottom of the box are the greatest treat.I know I’ve told you this before. Just because I’ve told you once, doesn’t mean I don’t feel the need to tell you again. (And again.)
I bought two pineapples on Thursday afternoon just because Randall’s was having a one-day sale and they cost 99 cents apiece. I also bought a bag of baby carrots and a tub of mushrooms, just because the mushrooms were on sale, AND if I spent $5.00 I could use the $1.00 produce coupon in the Simple Nutrition pamphlet found at the front of the store. [I then tweeted about this deal and called it “Smart Nutrition” just because I was in the mindset of my Smart Kitchen.]I purposefully bought one of the pineapples slightly green, just because I ate an entire watermelon within two and a half days……and have already bought another one, so I need to let that second pineapple ripen ’til I’m ready for it.
You should obtain Matt Wertz’s CD Weights & Wings……just because the song “Feels So Right” will make you happy. [And just because the hippie chicks and airstream trailer in the video make me feel like he’s in Austin.]Speaking of Austin, I sent this article to Maria this morning, just because I think everyone should move here and be my friend in ‘real life,’ too.
Well, I made brownies……into which I swirled some Butter Toffee Almond Butter…[I followed the same plan as when I had Butter Toffee Peanut Butter.]…and also some Cinn-almond Butter & Honey Banana Bread [adapted from the original PB & Honey recipe]……just because I was becoming a little overwhelmed with the sheer amount of nut butter in my pantry. [And obviously, I need to make space for more creations!]
These jars include the TJ’s Sunflower Seed Butter and Archer Farms Vanilla Cranberry PB that I refuse to eat, just because I have no idea when I’ll ever be able to buy them again. [The former, just because there is no Trader Joe’s within 605 miles of Austin, and the latter just because I’m pretty sure it has been discontinued. (#sadface) I’m also pretty sure they’ve stopped carrying the Peanut Butter & Co. Mighty Maple ’round here, but I don’t want to talk about that either…just because it’s so darn good.]
And right now it’s 10 o’clock, and I’m not concerned about getting to bed within the next 30 minutes…just because I have a three day weekend starting tomorrow (today?)!
[I’m scheduling this to post, just because I don’t have to be up at any particular time. Not that I’ll be sleeping in...just because I can’t.]
