Too much money at the end of the month.

That was funny.

Loved the post. I must say however that my first glance interpreted your post as an endorsement with its pretty pictures and all. Much like an FDA label, I had to read all the way through. And fortunately, I did so before calling my wife to ask her to stop by Trader Joe's for some orange dust.

How to make the most of an orange.
1. Use a peeler to peel strips of the orange skin, ignoring the pith.
2. Peel all the pith off and eat the orange.
3. Boil the strips of orange skin in a simple sugar syrup until the syrup reaches the soft stage.
4. Remove strips of orange skin from the simple syrup and let them drain on a cake rack on a cookie sheet. Let them cool completely and roll them in sugar.
5. Candy. Enjoy.

Regan is great. His ""I Walked On The Moon" skit is the best.

Just bought this, to stay within the subject at hand.

The same people market politicians...that should give you a good idea of the quality of contents. And they are organic and gluten free.

Thanks for the recommendation. As usually happens, one video leads to the next, and I enjoyed a number of his (and I'll need to find more as he IS very, very funny). I am still laughing over the air travel one and the 'end of the plane' dining options. When I'm next handed the packet of peanuts and/or pretzels, I'll be grateful that my allotment is not the frozen fish head with eyes, turnip and a spork. I have taken a sabbatical from Trader Joe's but shop often at their down-market Aldi which has its own set of interesting things.....but not orange dust.

Meanwhile, in the fruit section of my local Meijer super duper market today, they had 1 oz. bags of dried strawberries and other "regular-type" fruits. I don't recall the price, but it was too much to be paying for a little bit more than nothing.
