You know how some people have strong opinions about, oh, politics, religion, the environment, philosophy? That’s how I feel about the whole Red Vines vs. Twizzlers debate.
There is only one right answer. And that answer is Red Vines.
And not just because one brand and one brand alone comes in a 4-pound bucket. Which is now sitting on my kitchen counter. Oh no, it has to do with taste, texture, and overall objective goodness.
Also, thanks to the relative scarcity of Red Vines in NJ (thank you Target! And Blockbuster!), they are great way to bond: I’ve had many a fond conversation with fellow transplants in search of some decent flavored licorice.
Earlier today I was getting all uptight about not having gotten enough done today, school-wise. Then I thought: wait a minute, sure I take more time off now, but I also get more done. There might be a connection.
So I thought I’d tell you about my soup. To call it a recipe would be to greatly overstate its complexity: basically, I bought whatever soup-worthy frozen vegetables were available at Krogers, added some canned corn and squash (with onions!), chicken broth, chicken, kale, and whole-wheat egg noodles. It’s delicious.
Though I do feel like I cheated on the cooking.
Knitting to share soon, too. Luckily, the sock situation is under control and back on track.
