Thursday Things

It’s time for an installment of Thursday Things and a few items that have caught my eye this week:

1. Halloween candy season has definitely caught my eye.  All the limited editions, special flavor offerings, and once-a-year candy combos the candy manufacturers come out with.  I never met a drop of HFCS or highly processed chocolate that I didn’t love.

These KitKats I spotted at Target with white chocolate?  Yes please.

I’m a big fan of white chocolate

2. This big, sharp, lightweight knife.  The bigger the better, baby.

I’d gladly take this one.  It’s on sale for $400.  I better hurry.

3. These measuring cups from Anthro

I pinned them on my Dishes Board

4. Or this milk bottle measuring cup set

It somehow reminds me of the Russian nesting dolls I used to play with as a child.  Stacking, nesting, and cute little pieces that fit together.

5. It was a full moon yesterday.  So technically a Wednesday thing, but who’s counting.

Did you notice any full moon effects?

Moody, edgy, intense, passionate, meltdowns, insomnia, things breaking or going haywire, mechanical or electrical problems?

Blame it on the moon.

6. Salsa Verde.  Not as much garlic and onions in it compared to red salsa which I prefer.  The sodium content is still a big high for my liking, but I’ve been dealing with it.

And making some fun things with it in my hopes of creating more new recipes.

7. A new Flexipat from Kelly

It’s like a Silpat but even more indestructible and comes with a lifetime warranty.

The Flexipat sounds like the Vita-Mix of baking sheet liners.  I can’t wait to break it in.

Maybe with a batch of Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Kelly is also offering two specials for one week only in her storePerfect time to think about holiday gifts.

Buy three, get one free on medium Silpats


A general discount of 20% off on any purchase in her store.  (If you plan to take advantage of this great offer, before you submit your order, email Kelly your order at [email protected] so she can apply the discount manually to your order)

And if you want to start your own business by selling Silpats and related products, you can start for a $149 (limited time offer)

 8. The winner of the Not Nuts! Giveaway is

Bev Weidner

“Um, if I just open my mouth, will you pour that entire bag down my throat? Please and thank you.”

Congrats, Bev!  Two bags of seeds coming your way.

9. We’re having a heat wave in San Diego!  95F and sunny the past two days.  Not complaining, at all, but I am back to craving these rather than these.

  1. Another Kershaw Shun knife fan here! I have the Ken Onion Chef’s knife, and it looks like the knife in your photo. But it was half the price. It’s seriously the best knife I’ve ever owned.

    I have a few new “discoveries” for the week.
    -TJ’s Dark Chocolate bar, with toffee, walnuts and pecans – it’s amazing. I have a square each night (no harm in that, right?)
    -A new fragrance called Untitled by Maison Martin Margiela – it’s unique and fresh and interesting.

  2. Best salsa verde ever! I did have some weird full moon effects yesterday, my debit card # was stolen and they charged over $600!

  3. Hey, it’s Kelly here. I just wanted to add that if you happen to have an order that is $250 or more, definitely contact me beforehand. You start earning free products that way. It’s like having a party without actually physically having a party. So, if you have friends that want to go in on an order, you get freebies and save on shipping. Hooray!

    Also, it’s a really great deal right now to join my Demarle team. We have a lot of fun! For that $149 start-up price, you get over $400 of products…plus, I will throw in a special gift from you to me. There’s even a money back guarantee. If you get the kit but decide that you don’t want to do business, you at least get to have a nice discount. That’s one of the reasons I joined! Let me know soon. Thanks!

  4. By the way, I meant a gift TO YOU, FROM me. No, I haven’t been drinking…
