Here are my garlic chives are doing well. They are popping up more and more each day. Gen how are yours doing? It’s so weird how they grow, I had no idea. If you can tell from the picture, they come up bent in the middle, and then a day or two goes by and one of the bent part pops up! So cool!mas pics 547

These are some of the beautiful flowers growing in my yard. I love the purple!

Oh! Nuts

The beautiful people at Oh! Nuts sent me 4 packets to test out. These are the each 1 pound! So generous! I got Raw White Cashew Nuts, Trail Mix Deluxe, Crushed Carob and Oriental Rice Cracker Mix

mas pics 137 mas pics 140 My favorite of the 4 was the trail mix. It was SO GOOD. It had almonds, raisins, dried pineapple, dried mango, cashews, walnuts, and all sorts of other glorious things in it. mas pics 192

Seriously, this stuff was addicting! mas pics 200 Oops I ate the whole bag!mas pics 505 Second favorite was the oriental rice cracker mix. It was crunchy and a perfect snack. I really liked just throwing a baggie of this stuff in my purse and snacking on it throughout the day. mas pics 556  The cashews have been a big hit with my dad and boyf. They both want to snack on them all day with a beer in hand! I love the raw cashews they are very tasty!mas pics 141 Ok, the crushed carob has a interesting taste. I thought I was getting that other word that starts with a “c” and its supposed to be a healthy substitute for chocolate? Does anyone know what I am talking about? I swear I am loosing my mind. Carob is definitely not the chocolate stuff I thought I was getting, but its still good. I have been putting it in my yogurt, which is fine. I am not sure what else I could do with it. Any suggestions?mas pics 142

Oh! Nuts offers a variety of nuts, dried fruit, mixes, candy and even chocolate! They also do cool gift baskets too. Check it out.

Thanks FoodBuzz!

Foodbuzz sent all those in the Tastemaker Program the new Buitoni Wild Mushroom Agnolotti pasta, before it even hit the stores. Gotta love that! I feel pretty important. Haha. The only issue is, I don’t eat mushrooms! Man down! Don’t hate me, they just actually freak me out. Alot! I don’t know why. Mushrooms and Tomatoes! Those are the two main things I don’t really eat. I think its because my mom doesn’t like either of those things either. Who knows. Either way, Boyf LOVES Mushrooms and Tomatoes, so he was MORE than happy to test out this pasta. mas pics 241 I made it for boyf and he ate it. Here is the pasta chilling in the boiling water. mas pics 243 Pasta draining. mas pics 244

Boyf wanted red sauce with it, so here is the finished product.mas pics 245  Thumbs up approval from Boyf! He LOVED IT. He said it was very fresh and tasty. He ate the whole packet himself! Maybe I need to sit down and talk to him about portion control? Ha!mas pics 248

While boyf enjoyed his mushroom pasta, I snacked on a chocolate covered strawberry. My dad got them for my mom for mothers day, and I stole one! So good! mas pics 246
