I updated the “Pictures” tab after borrowing and scanning lots of childhood pictures from my parents. It took me a long time to rummage through them all, but I loved looking back and reminiscing! Check them out if you get a chance!
Dr. Kracker sent me a box of crackers before we left for Chicago, and we finally had the chance to try them with Amish Blueberry Cheddar cheese last night. Yumm!
If you haven’t tried Dr. Kracker crackers, I recommend you do so. They are very hearty and have a richy, nutty/seedy flavor. For some this may come off as a tad bitter, but we really enjoyed them!
Question: Have you tried Doctor Kracker crackers? What did you think of them?
We also unloaded a LOT of wine that we brought back from Illinois. This wine was purchased in Italy, sent to Michigan, driven to Chicago, then to Champaign, Illinois, and now on to Tulsa, Oklahoma. Why, you ask? Alcohol cannot be imported into Oklahoma, so husband’s stash from his Italy days were sent over with our friends. What sports they are, huh!? Can’t wait to try some of those Chiantis!!
While I was in Illinois for the holidays, I did take one grocery shopping trip into a Meijer store. To my great pleasure, I found NuVal scores on labels! Thank GOODNESS I had my camera with me, as I started snapping lots of shots! While not all labels and food products contained NuVal scores, a lot did! My husband was a bit embarrassed with my excitement, but he just doesn’t “get it”. If you’re living under a rock and don’t know about NuVal scores, head over to Melissa’s blog and read all about NuVal — the scores may even be in stores near you!
Check the labels carefully for the hexagonal NuVal symbol — some are colored, some are not.
Question: Have you found NuVal scores in your local grocery store? If yes, where do you shop? If not, have you heard of the NuVal scoring system? Any opinions on the NuVal scoring system?
