All Good Things

        
Just a short little post today. Have any of you guys ever heard of this guy? I hadn't until I watched one of his stand up specials on Netflix at the end of a day where I was sad and struggling for most of it. It made me clutch my stomach and I didn't think anything would have made me laugh that day. I've now watched two of his specials, and he is pretty hilarious. I thought I would share because who doesn't love laughing?
My therapists office is on this weird road that on one side is all condos and apartments, and the other side is all shops like TJ Max, a craft store, Kohls etc. Right at the end of the street is a grocery called Harmons which I think is only in Utah. I needed cat treats anyway, so I decided to stop in and check it out. Am I alone in loving to check out new grocery stores? Anyway, I would say Harmons is like a Safeway or Giant Eagle, so not vegan hostile, but not overly vegan friendly either. So I was very impressed when I saw that they even have Heidi Ho cheese! To be honest even in Seattle Heidi Ho is only at Whole Foods, PCC and whatever other pricier, more specialty stores. They also have a decent Gardein selection in the freezer section. I would have done more perusing, but I was self conscience of my emotionally fragile state. But I see this as amazing progress. Stores don't carry products that don't sell. And I didn't even know that Follow Your Heart had a low fat southwestern ranch! It has green chilis in it, so it must have a kick!
I was able to make a mixed berry dateorade with the Ninja bullet, something blenders in the past have struggled with, even if I soak the dates. This was just water, a handful of frozen berries, and about four or five dates. So sweet!
Speaking of sweet, I walked into the kitchen this morning to make breakfast, and found Joan sleeping on the hard kitchen floor! But you see the heat vent is right behind her. She loves the heat. I hope sometime I can find an apartment with a fireplace, she would be in heaven!
Happy Wednesday!

  1. Dim Sim also loves sitting in front of any sort of heat source. I had a number of fan heaters who died over the year from her sitting right in front of them. And when we have any of our ducted heaters on in the house she will find the exact spot to sit so that the heat hits her (which is up on top of the shelves in the lounge room in one case).
    We got Vegenaise finally last year, and I love it, but no other FYH products yet. I really hope we get that BBQ vegenaise, though sounds like a fun time!

    1. Last winter I rarely had my heat on because Seattle is so mild, so I never realized what a heat lover she is!
      When it's time for more vegan ranch, I'm definitely going to try the southwestern ranch!

  2. I'm at work and don't want to play the video too loud, but is that the skit where the guy talks about hiding when the doorbell rings? If so, I LOVE THAT SKIT. Because I totally do that. If someone doesn't call or text first, I freak out and hide. Haha.

    Also, I love exploring grocery stores! When I travel, I always work in tours of the Whole Foods, TJ's, and any indie health food stores.

    1. Yes it is! It's so funny, I am exactly the same way. I always figure if you can't call or text, you don't get a door opening!
      I would rather explore grocery stores over clothing stores any day of the week!

  3. Sebastian Maniscalco is a total trip. My husband discovered him on Netflix (he's always trying to find comedians we can enjoy together - Brian Regan being another) and I'm 100% sold. Being that I'm also Italian doesn't hurt either. I can relate to his whole bag. He also has a new comedy special on Showtime, I think. I just saw it two weeks ago. Not as good as "What's Wrong with People" and "Aren't You Embarassed," but still very funny.

    I've never heard of Heidi Ho cheese. Maybe it's at Whole Foods and I just missed it. Frankly, I don't go there very often. Any good?

    1. He is my new favorite comedian. I can't get enough of him. I looked up Brian Regan on Netflix, but he was unavailable for streaming. But I watched some clips on YouTube, hilarious!
      I tried the Heidi Ho cheese once when I lived in Seattle. It's more of a sauce than a solid cheese. It was pretty good, but not my favorite. If I'm going to splurge, it would be Myokos or Treeline.

    2. OMG - Miyokos! Don't even get me started on that stuff. Addictive. Expensive, but totally addictive.

    3. I know. I so wish it weren't so pricey. But it is at least worth it!

  4. Omg yes he's so funny!! I've only seen a little of his stand up but it was so funny. Definitely a great way to brighten your day.

    I've never heard of Heidi ho cheese. It looks interesting though. That smoothie is the most beautiful color!

    1. He is so funny! I always know when someone is funny when they make me laugh on one of THOSE kind of days.
      I tried the Heidi Ho cheese in Seattle. It's kind of more of a sauce that a solid cheese. It's pretty tasty. I tried the smoky flavor.
