(moldy?) Chocolate Graham Crackers

moldy graham crackers?, originally uploaded by TWiNKiE CHAN.

Sometimes I try to find chocolatey alternatives to cookies and brownies, and chocolate graham crackers usually fit the bill.

Tonight I tried to snack on some, and then I looked and saw that they were all covered in a mysterious white speckled substance! My instant reaction was, "I JUST ATE MOLD!!!!!" This is especially bad because I have some post-Thanksgiving Day doodoos to contend with today.

Hairy took a look and thought it might be flour, since every single graham cracker was speckled. Even the pack that was not yet opened had speckles in it.

So, ultimately, I'm not sure if it is mold, or if graham crackers are even able to mold, but now these suckas are in the trash bin, and I ate Gerber Graduates biter biscuits instead. MMMM!

What I Brought to Work Today

eating at work

I've been down at the office earlier than usual, and I clearly kind of panic over what to bring to eat.


Activia Yogurt: Seems kind of runny and thin.
Nature Valley Oats n Honey granola bar: One of my fav bar-shaped foods!
Fuji Apple: from our order
Ferrero Rocher: Fine Hazelnut chocolates from Hairy! I told him during a commercial that I was into horrible holiday chocolates, e.g. ALMOND ROCA!!!!!!!!!!

But now it's freezing in the office and I seem to be craving hot, oily, bad pizza a la Domino's.

Pork Pate'

It was one of those pate' days again. The kind of day you come home from work screaming for protein, and this is what you end up eating straight off the block, no crackers.

I'm pretty hardcore.

I have to say, that this super fancy-looking loaf from Whole Foods isn't that liverliscious. It's kind of like a weird pressed meat log.

Not so yummy, but, obvs my standards can be pretty low.

Yes, that is 90210 that I'm watching. The episode in which Donna almost gets raped by that weird bald dude.

The McGriddle

Yes, it's official.

At long last, I lost my McGriddle Virginity. I broke the McGriddle Barrier. I was really afraid of the McGriddle for a long time. Pancakes...syrups.....and MEAT!?! It was too much for my brain to handle (I know I just mixed donuts with spinach in my last post....but still). My brother had long hailed the deliciousness of the McGriddle, but then it seemed like one of those nasty things that only boys like.

So when Manda called me, about to come over, asking if I wanted McDonald's for breakfast, I could not deny her. And I took this opportunity to be brave. To take THAT leap.

I was surprised that the pancakes that sandwiched the bacon (I got bacon, I think, instead of sausage...sausage sometimes gives me the doodoos) were so THICK. Small and thick. Biscuity pancakes. And they were definitely syrupy sweet, playing grease-tag with the salty bacony goodness. When you eat the McGriddle, you don't even know there are eggs present. This is about cake and meat, my friends.

Would I order it again? Meh. I don't know. It wasn't BAD.

But my all-time favorite fast food breakfast is still the Crescent Supreme Meal at Jack in the Box. NUM.

Donuts n Spinach

Donuts n SPinach, originally uploaded by TWiNKiE CHAN.

So while you are looking at this, please listen to this. I'd embed, but the embed code was removed!!

This is what I had for "brunch" today, in between a phone meeting and an in-person meeting.

We'd bought some little donuts last night, but I didn't eat any, so I was rarin' to go after waking up.

However, I did realize, that donuts are not very nutritious, so then I whipped out the CANNED SPINACH!!

I am very healthy, you see. I should write a book.

Pate' and Potato Chips

Ok, so I know you have all dealt with this common conundrum.

You're like, "Damn, my boyfriend just bought me some wicked pate'! And I wanna eat it right now!"

And then the bad news is, "Shoooot! I don't have any crackers to spread this luscious liver upon!"

So you dig around in your cupboards, and all you have is potato chips.


I know this post will help many of you out there solve your pate' problems.

(And yes, the chip looks red underneath because they are weird all-natural red potato chips from Trader Joe's.)

Porter Cheese (it's really brown!)

This photo was originally uploaded by podchef on Flickr.

Normally, I place a ban on cheese in my house, because we LOVE cheese here, and we don't want to be supercheesefatties. However, there are two exceptions to this: American singles to wrap the dogs' pills in, and gourmet cheese upon occasion.

This is an Irish porter cheese. It's super dark, chocolatey-looking cheddar that gets its brown marbling from a dark ale. I don't like beer, but I do like me some beer-cheese apparently.

About 49% of me thinks that it's weird for cheese to be this color, but then 51% of me ate it anyway. I'm hoping this means that I will only absorb 51% of the fat.
