My whacky eating patterns continue.

Today I had my shot of juice (to wash down the morning meds), a damn good cup of coffee (with cream and Truvia), and a bagel with crunchy peanut butter.  For dinner, I made a lovely tossed salad with tomatoes, olives, a little blue cheese, and Olive Garden house dressing.

All in all, a fairly good day.

But as I settled in to watch a movie that I picked up at the library (Damage, with Jeremy Irons and Juliette Binoche) I wanted...something.

Popcorn would have been good, but I'm out.

So I fished around in the pantry and came up with a box of pretzel mix that I forgot I had, and in about an hour I had big fat soft hot pretzels right out of the oven!  
Not bad for a first try, eh?

Stewey loved them (I was careful to give him the non-salty parts), and he was particularly good during his bandage change as a thank you. 

I will definitely try these again, and who knows?  Maybe I'll try my hand at something cheesy to dip them in!

No stitching tonight.  My patio/garden cleaning and running around have knocked me for a bit of a loop, so methinks we're going to watch one more Gilmore Girls and call it a night! 

(Right after I hit the Tylenol bottle!)


  1. Yum...those pretzels look delicious.

  2. Your pretzels looked yummy, Coni. Glad you and Stewey enjoyed them!

  3. They look delicious, perhaps a bit of mustard. Not Coleman's English mustard though, have you ever tried it ? it will clear your sinus at 20

  4. Oh my -these pretzels look delicious. Now you've got me going to see if I can find some pretzel mix. Or maybe I'll just scrounge around in the lazy Susan to see if we already have a bag.

  5. Velvetta has little microwave cups of cheese that would be the perfect pairing with these pretzels. Yummy.

  6. Yum!! I am going to have to have a search for some pretzel mix on my next shopping trip :)

  7. YUM-OH! I need these hot with a little ham, a little swiss and some coleslaw. OUuuu baby! Need to go shopping tomorrow. LOL Thanks.

  8. Great job with the pretzels ConI! Hugs and prayers, Cathryn
