What happened to Music Monday?

Well, it went the way of the dodo.

Not permanently. It's just it was the first Monday of the month, which is really busy for me, and I didn't have time.

Anna Marie and I marched (well, actually, I marched, and she rode in the trailer - I think she got the worse end of the deal) in the Senatobia Christmas parade last night. When I got home (and thawed out) I was going to post, but BellSouth was having internet problems.

(See? I have proof. There I am, in my big purple coat, waving to the crowd like an idiot. AM is in the bright pink hat on the trailer.)

So, no go on the Music Monday.

But! I have new product reviews!

I've been doing lots of eating lately. (Or always. Whatever.)

First off: Little Debbie has redeemed herself in my eyes.

After contributing greatly to my chubby childhood, LD has seen the light.

100 calorie packs - of brownies! My favorite pre-packaged snack food, Little Debbie Fudge Brownies, now in a more manageable size!

And gingerbread men! Soft and chewy, and 100 calories! Brilliant!

I've also been wanting to try the Quaker Simple Harvest oatmeal for a while, because the commercials made it look good and hearty and oat-y. So yesterday I broke down and bought some to leave at work, for those mornings when I don't have time to eat before I leave home. My usual on-the-go breakfast is a Fiber One bar and a Coke Zero, but I figured this might be a wee bit healthier.

Holy smokes - this stuff is good! Our local Big Box Retailer only carries the Apple flavor, but it's great! It's really much better than most instant oatmeal I've had. I could purposely skip my Kashi GoLean for this stuff. I can't wait to get my grubby little paws on the other two flavors.

Fudge brownies I can control myself around. And oatmeal that cooks up to perfection in 60 seconds.

Thank you, Little Debbie and the Quaker Oat Man. You've made this little brunette very happy.

now if LD would only come up with a 100 calorie pnut butter wafer. holyfreakingcrap - THAT would be good.

They look good! I myself am partial to the brownies! :)

Susie Q said...

These look good! I am just beginning what I am calling, "a lifestyle change" in the way I eat. These would be perfect!!

Oooh, those brownies!

Sue...who is loving all of these pictures of AM. But she is SO sweet I get a sugar rush just looking at them!

Lissete said...

Yummy! So are those brownies a decent size? Or about the size of a matchbook? Do tell! Planning on starting another diet come January but I can't give up sweet treats completely. :( I LOVE Go Lean!

Melissa said...

Lissete, they're about the size of one half of a regular brownie. They also aren't as thick. Hungry Girl said they were the worst 100-calorie pack of the year, but I disagree. They had to do some portion control to get it managable!
