I had a perfect shopping day today. To me, that means finding things that I have wanted for months. To Mr. How Sweet, it just means I spent too much money.

Oh well. It’s all going to be put to use in ways that benefit him.

I can’t wait to snack on…

Addicting. I could eat my weight in these alone.

I don’t even have words. For weeks I have only been able to find this in packets. They cost an arm and a leg. This actually costs an arm and two legs, but it is worth it since I can go at it with a spoon. FYI – I hate all other almond butter.

These are the best chocolate chips. Currently, they are baking inside chewy chocolate chip cookies. I have also had multiple handfuls. I really like them in yogurt. And peanut butter. And just plain.

I can’t wait to cook with…

Figs! I love this time of year because I can actually find them. Yes, I have to drive 45 minutes just to find them, but they are so worth it to me. I just discovered figs (fresh and dried) over 2 years ago, and it may have been the best day of my life. I possibly love them more than chocolate. But not really.

Hopefully these babies are good. It is tough to find a juicy peach ’round these parts.

Yes. Vegetables. Can I just say that the prettier they are, the more I want to eat them? Even though I plan on combining them with copious amounts of salt, feta cheese, watermelon and oil, I am very excited to eat these. Two bites in I will probably change my mind, pick them all out, and just eat the cheese and watermelon.

Anyone ever used this grain blend from TJ’s? I have no idea what I’m going to do with it, but I’m going to use it as ammunition in breaking Mr. How Sweet’s 2-bags-of-brown-rice-a-day habit.

Just wanted to share a few more grocery staples with you!

Now, I must go tend to the cookies in the oven and the pizza dough that’s rising. Mr. How Sweet is in a trance watching the NASCAR race which makes me want to barf. And cry. And eat a lot of cookies.

Wild Saturday night we got going on here.
