Graze

I think I heard about graze.com through Tumblr. It’s invite only in the US right now (I think I still have two invites, comment if you’d like one!) and I thought it was a very neat and afforable idea. They send you a weekly box of snacks, four little compartments and you can choose if you like them or not. What’s nice is that real people make this real, delicious food and send it to real people. I like how much “real” there is involved here. I loved mostly everything I got, and what’s nice is it’s all relatively low-calorie snacks. I was sad about the amount that was in the box, I’m hoping as they expand I can maybe have an option to order a “full sized” version of some of the more delicious snacks.

I loved, loved,loved the oatcakes and caramelized onion dip. I want so many of them. I also was pleasantly surprised that I loved the tutti-frutti mix of dried fruits, it was very flavorful. I can’t wait for the next one. Also, if you’d like an invite, your first box is FREE (comment below!). They cost $5 after that including shipping, which is so cheap! And all the packaging is recyclable!

Makings of Sangria

Makings of Sangria

I will show the end product later but basically I used that wine, it was 1.75 liters, then two oranges, one apple, two cinnamon sticks, 1/2 a vanilla bean, 1 cup of brandy and 1/2 cup of Triple Sec. I will be making it again. So yummy. And strong.

You are what you eat

 

Recently, I’ve been noticing that since I don’t cook often for grandpa (about 99% of the time, I’m just eating and making my own food), I eat strange things. I eat pretty much what I want and I try to buy only things I will eat and quickly too. I feel like too much stuff goes moldy if I try to buy things I don’t love. So this has made up a lot of my meals recently:

 

Hot chocolate (with soy milk), hummus, cucumbers, cheese (lactose free) and crackers. Oh and a gluten free cookie!

I love allllllll of those things and it’s been nice to only eat what I love recently!

I will try to do a knitting and life update post – psst. I got a real, full time job with benefits, at a small company. Very happy so far!
