Sweet Cherry Pie


My sister.

A bit of a smart ass, that one.

Wanna see what she gave me when I went back to LI?

Lara Bars.

We all remember how I feel about Lara Bars, don’t we?

HAR HAR, Sharon!

I told her I wouldn’t try them unless SHE tried them FIRST.

Now we know how SHE feels about Lara Bars.

I will say that the Cherry Pie flavor is not AS nastilicious or puketastic as the Chocolate Coconut Chew. It was alllmost even GOOD. Almost. Almost as in… NOT.

My mom will tell you otherwise though. She housed the thing. She couldn’t get ENOUGH of Lara.

(who ever CAN though, eh? )



(I crack myself up!)


Would you believe there was actually COOKING chez vibegrrl? THERE WAS! Lookie:


That would be rice pilaf (with yogurt — dont ask me where I got that one), garlic-lemon squash, and pork chops with a yogurt-dill sauce (LOVE me that yogurt, apparently). And fresh salad with a lemon-parsley-dill-sumac dressing. OH! and wine. Can’t forget the wine.

Ahhh, the joy of cooking for one. I’ve been eating this for three days now :)

Sometimes one gets a bit lonely, you know?

I had a dream last night where this guy I know confesses that he loves me. I keep having this dream — I think this is the second or third time now. Every time, for the first 5 seconds after I wake up, I believe the dream is totally real and that it’s this HUGE revelation, but then I come to and remember how NOT true it is. One time I think he even left his bride at the alter for me! I’ve also had the REVERSE dream, where I realize I’m in love with him.


It would make one helluva story though…

…one of those timeless, tell-the-grandkids stories.


This is what happens to a girl who stays single too long. Her mind starts making up stupid shit!

I’m LOSIN’ IT, people!

    Saw some of those Lara bars in the store last night and totally thought of you. Sorry they’re still yuck. If you’re losing it, I’m gone, gone, gone! ;-)

    well it does smell like gas all the time in your place, so you might as well be cooking!

  3. Vicki Says:

    Well at least the dinner looks delish! Does it feel bad to have pure crap named after you?

  4. Tanya Says:

    Aw, you’re too cute to be cooking for one. I hope you find that awesome guy when you least expect it (if that’s what you want of course).

    I almost bought a Larabar for you from Balducci’s because, well, I saw them there and, well, I knew you didn’t like them.

    More Larabars? I saw an ad in a women’s health magazine and totally thought of how nasty you said they were. I am so glad I wasn’t tempted. Thanks for the public service announcement.

    I wish I lived closer, I would help you eat those yummy looking leftovers.

    PS You do sound a bit insane. What exactly is in those Lara bars?

  8. Jenna Says:

    The subconscious mind is very powerful, maybe it’s trying to tell you something….

    garlic-lemon sqush sounds so delicious to this veg head, you should share the recipe.

  9. Silvia Says:

    Oh man, and you can cook too!?! You rock (even though babies give you the finger…)

    You’re very funny! Consider yourself lucky. You’ve been added in my favourites. Hoorah!

  11. Shaz Says:
