All snacks

I got really busy this morning, too busy to stop for a formal lunch (you know, because I usually break out the white linens), so I’ve had to snack my way through the day to stay alive.  I kind of enjoyed it, I might take this approach more often.  It really lends itself to someone who likes to be eating at all times.

I started with this cantaloupe that I cut up this morning before breakfast:

This is that massive cantaloupe that my dad gave me.  I haven’t even started to make a dent, but I’m getting there.  Trying to pace myself.

Then I had this Kashi bar:

I thought I liked these, but I think I’ve changed my mind.  This is the Chocolate Peanut flavor, and it had that weird metallic artifical taste I don’t like.

Then, a couple spoonfuls of peanut butter and an apple:

It was a lot of peanut butter.  I finished the jar.  However, I think a good portion of it must have gotten on the camera when I took this picture, because I just looked over and Jack was licking its screen quite furiously.  I am glad someone likes that camera.

I always wonder about these people, or those guys who sell the churros.  I mean, did she make this cotton candy in her apartment?  Does she have a cotton candy machine?   Is she going to sue me for posting her picture online?  Probably not, I don’t have nearly enough readers.  Or enough money, for that matter.

Luckily I don’t like spun sugar and don’t eat things that were made in strangers’ living rooms, so I was not tempted by this at all.  Instead, I came home and had an apple with peanut butter:


As you can see, Jack was intrigued.  He hasn’t gotten any food off either of our plates in his life, but for some reason he still holds out hope that it might be his lucky day.

This afternoon I got hungry again so I had an apple with a little peanut butter spread over it:


It looks like caramel, right? Made me want some.

And chocolate chips after dinner:


Okay, gotta go – the gauntlet is on. Anyone else watch that show?? So much drama, I love it. But Jack would rather read his Self magazine:


He wishes he had Kelly Ripa’s body.
