Papaya rhymes with…

December 23, 2009


Nick over at Kaia sent me an amazing package of goodies!

Kaia jackpot

Buckwheat granola, sprouted sunflower seeds, fruit leather… all food that is minimally processed, but not minimally flavored, my friends. Open the packages with caution, for it may be difficult to cease the magnetic attraction between your hand and the content inside the package.  First I tried the Cocoa Mole Sprouted Sunflower Seeds:

Cocoa Mole Sprouted Sunflower SeedsIt tastes like chocolate covered sunflower seeds, but better. Crunchy, cocoa-ey clusters!

Then I opened up the Lime Ginger Fruit Leather-

Lime Ginger

It looks a little odd…

Delicious 'Leather'

…but it tastes fantastic.

Oh golly, I can’t wait to have me some of their granola in the morning!

While we’re on the topic of fantastic tasting food, let’s rewind to last night’s supper.

Balsamic & Rosemary Roasted Veggies with Chickpea & Black Olive Couscous

Now, I’d like to allow myself the opportunity to be silly. I cracked up when I saw this commercial a few days ago.


Can you believe tomorrow is Christmas Eve? I’ve always been a fan of Christmas Eve dinner, as opposed to Christmas day dinner…

Random questions to leave you with:

Sweet or Salty?

Peanut Butter or Almond Butter?

Sweet Potato or Squash?

Short Stories of Novels?

Sweatpants or Jeans?

Sunshine or Snow?

    I’ve always loved Christmas Eve dinner. I’m Polish, and part of our tradition is to celebrate more on Christmas Eve than Christmas Day… I can’t wait for tomorrow 🙂 As for the random questions… sweet, almond butter (peanut would kill me), sweet potato, novels, sweatpants, sunshine 🙂 Have an awesome day.
