‘Twas the Night Before Tuesday
… and at the Winchell house,
Heather had just come home
from an ice cream date, out.
She put on her robe
and washed her face with care,
when she got a text from Pam
who was at Walmart
having her guess what was there?
No freakin way. I couldn’t believe it. I told Pam on our ice cream date that I had been searching for the Carrot Cake M&M’s and hadn’t found them at the Wal-Mart by us. She had to stop there on her way home to get stuff for work the next day and she found them… at the same Wal-Mart I was JUST AT 6 hours earlier. I even asked an employee and she said they didn’t have them. LIAR! So Pam, being the awesome friend she is bought them and brought them over at 10:15PM.
She also brought me a bag of Magic Pop 🙂 Anywho… even though I had just brushed my teeth, I decided to break open the bag and try these suckers out.
Oh. Emm. Geee. They are so freakin good. Just. Like. Carrot Cake! Todd, Kristin and my parents really liked them, too. When I tried the Candy Corn ones, they were good and got better the more you ate, but didn’t really taste like candy corn… these were spot on. Cakey and frosting-y. I’ve already bought a second bag.
As you can see from the M&M picture above (and a lot of my other food pics) we have granite counter tops in our kitchen, as well as our bathrooms. You can’t use just any ole spray to clean them and the ones specifically for granite can be expensive- and we all know I’m cheap. So, I make my own 🙂
Homemade Granite Counter top Cleaner
- 1/4 c. rubbing alcohol (this is what eliminates the streaks)
- 3 -4 drops dish soap
- water — enough to fill the 16 oz bottle
- 2 or 3 drops essential oil (optional- I didn’t use them)
I doubled the recipe and just used an empty Windex Bottle (32oz). Don’t you love the scratched out the label and scribbled “Granite?” I know, so crafty I am. Obviously you could put this in a store bought bottle and create a cute label, but I like to keep it simple (or maybe I’m just lazy!)
