1. The foods that I have consumed in the last 55 hours are… utterly ridiculous. I think I was playing the part of a 17-year old boy.

2. One of those things was that donut above, and do you know just HOW obsessed I am with sprinkles? I asked for the donut with white frosting and sprinkles, but the girl must have only heard the “white frosting” part and reached for a sprinkle-less donut. I basically lost my mind. I’m like oh no no no no no!! the sprinkled one! I SAID THE SPRINKLED ONE!! Because they are so important.

3. If you follow me on instagram then you probably have noticed that I would prefer to carry on all online conversations with emojis.

4. More snack talk: has anyone else noticed that it seems like the Snappea Crisp bag is now smaller? It’s probably a good thing since it’s impossible to eat less than the entire bag in one sitting but um…. no.

5. I adore this post – if you could have one day, what would you do? Mine would probably include sprinkles. Am I annoyingly predictable?

6. Uh, Nashville? Can we talk about it now? I loved it but was slightly annoyed with the ending as I felt it was somewhat predictable for a finale, and obviously we know they both have to be back next season. Or else I myself will die. They have to be back right?!

7. Calling all Saved by the Bell lovers: this. Yes.

8. I am SO in love with this commercial. I am a child. I swear I saw this longer version first but had the most difficult time finding it. I just listened to both for about 30 minutes straight.

9. If you are a facebaby fan and need a little america’s-funniest-home-videos-style giggle, you may want to watch this video. Do not worry. He didn’t even get a SCRATCH.

10. What are you having for dinner tonight? I should probably eat lettuce leaves but fat chance of that happening.

    Yesterday I basically spent the whole day stuffing my face with all the food that I didn’t eat over the weekend… fried chicken, lots of chips with salsa and cheese dip (yes from a jar, and YES it was amazing), potato salad, macaroni salad, rice pilaf (random but enjoyable), maybe 20 bacon-wrapped stuffed jalapeños (OMG), some sausage links, tres leches cake, aaaaaaaaaand an al pastor taco.
    Mind you, this WAS over an 8-hour period. But still. I should have air and lemon wedges for lunch today.

    NO WAY anything happens to either Rayna or Deacon. They cannot get rid of either one of those characters – because I will HUNT SOMEONE DOWN AND HURT THEM. I adore Connie Britton and am currently seeking out a Deacon of my own…

    IMO WAY too much happened in that last 5 minutes – some too predictable, some just ridiculous…

    Jess,
    I met you this weekend when my amazing son Adam married equally amazing Jenna (eatliverun) I had to tell the story a few times about how I googled ideas for a recipe in February and very fortunately for me found your Upside Down Caramelized Banana Bread Skillet Cake which helped make Adam’s grandma’s 80th birthday party a success. I then emailed Jenna a note about the party they missed due to living so far from Texas and mentioned the super wonderful dessert and said, “I should really write the young woman whose fantastic recipe I pilfered.” Jenna said “LOVE all this! And you can tell Jess (How Sweet Eats) in person since she’s coming to the wedding :) She’s one of my best friends and is coming on the bachelorette party as well! That’s too funny. All her food is fantastic and she is the sweetest girl. You’ll love her!”
    What a wonderful coincidence. And she was right. You are super sweet. Thanks for making the trip to enjoy the wedding with us and for sharing here your honest and refreshing approach to life and cooking!
    Nancy

    I got caught watching a Saved by the Bell marathon on MTV2 yesterday. And here I thought MTV was a lost cause!

    If you liked Saved by the Bell, then there’s a good chance you liked Fresh Prince. If you did, did you catch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2hjbgs6R85E Oh the memories. We are definitely a spoiled generation!

    Sprinkles – YES. They used to make a donut at my local grocery store that was a cake donut completely covered in sprinkles – no icing. It was so good!! And a vanilla soft serve cone with rainbow sprinkles is my favorite treat!

    Ooooh Nashville…I’ve been waiting to hear what you thought of the season finale; now I know why it took you a little while since you were at Jenna and Adam’s wedding!

    Anyway, they packed a lot into the last few minutes and the crash wasn’t a surprise – but when you put that with the fact that Rayna’s new album is called, “The Parts I Remember” – do we see where this could be leading? I just hope the writers do a good job with the ramifications of it all…Deacon and Rayna forever! Just hope it doesn’t take all season to get there.

    No, we can’t even talk about Nashville. That show, as much as I love it, sends me into a frenzy after every episode. The season finale was 43 minutes of predictability, and I don’t know if I let my guard down or what, but for the final 44th minute, I basically just shouted, “What?! What?! What are you doing?! What the HELL is going on in this town?!” over and over.

    2 days before my period starts (yes, we’re going there), I have a solid 2 days (so 4 days) of eating like it’s my last day on Earth. I can be mid-Thanksgiving dinner and I’m already wondering if Taco Bell is open and if they will dip my churros in cheese sauce, so yes, I definitely understand eating like a 17 year old boy.

    Right there with you…on foods I shouldn’t have consumed this weekend (how many ribs CAN a girl eat??? Let’s not talk about it….) and Nashville! I said the SAME thing to my hubby (who I found re-watching the finale on his secondary laptop in the basement when he was “on a conference call”….)…the crash was totally predicatable, and, of course they’ll be back…

    However, I do say BRAVO to the great writing and acting of Juliette and Deacon…they SERIOUSLY did well on making you feel their pain…when Deacon took his shower and then rinsed his Advil down with the Scotch….Oooo, my heart ACHED!!! (and not just cause he was in a towel…)

    Like one of your other commenters analysis’ including the name of Rayna’s new album! I seriously hope they do NOT give her Amnesia…might drive me batty!

    What was wrong with that donut girl??? Like anyone wants the donut with 5 sprinkles on it…throw that one OUT lady !!!

    I wish that show was 2 hours long and on Mon-Fri. I’d DVR them all week and have a “Nashville Marathan” That’s what I’d do if I could have one day of freedom.

    About the Snappea Crisps….love them and every time I eat a bag I think about you laughing at the fact that they claim to have more than one serving in the bag. It is funny. ANYWAY, my TJ’s stopped carrying theirs immediately after I started liking them. I found some at Whole Foods but to me they were a little bit greasy or something? I prefer the TJ’s brand. So, I guess I will wait to see if they bring them back. And I’m thinking a smaller bag would probably be a better idea for us…. :)
