So, I wanted something warm for lunch, then I spotted a chicken noodle soup recipe on the side of some spaghetti, but I didn't have any cooked chicken. So I used cheese instead.

As it turns out, vegetable stock, spaghetti and Stilton go together quite well.

Holy fuck.
Caracas in the East Village has the effing best banana cinnamon shakes in existence.
I didn't know how much I needed that in my life until yesterday.

Oh, and I made, like, a shit-ton of oatmeal-raisin cookies, because Mathematician and I like oatmeal-raisin cookies and he needs to not buy all his meals at restaurants if he wants to save money. I mean, seriously, bro.

Double-posting because apparently if you bought Nutella within the last 4 years, you can get a cut of this ridiculous class-action lawsuit.

Really? Nutrition labels are RIGHT THERE. All you have to do is LOOK AT THEM. Plus, have you ever tasted Nutella? Have you ever put that in your mouth? What kind of person believes that's a healthy breakfast option?

It tastes like pure chocolate, but they always market it as a healthy spread... I could see them getting in trouble for false advertising, but yah. Do people not actually look at the nutrition labels? Just because something isn't obvious junk food or claims to be healthy doesn't mean it is. Heck, look at Nutrigrain bars. They're no better for you calorie, fat and sugar-wise than a regular chocolate-chip-filled granola bar... and Vitamin water has a fucking warning label saying DO NOT DRINK IF UNDER 18.

Also, pizza for dinner tonight. Mmmm.

Edit again; The class action suit lets you claim $4 for every jar you bought? ...Why is that even worth going to court over?

Just had pasta for dinner~ Which is highly fitting since I've been on a Hetalia high all day, haha. Craving some red velvet ice cream, but I'm so full I think I might explode as it is!

Well, common sense aside, I do recall a lot of TV adverts advertised it as "healthy" a few years ago (by emphasising that it was made of hazelnuts, etc).

Granted, there's a legitimate false advertising claim, but it's not exactly like cosmetics companies telling you putting on their blush will literally take ten years off your face. I believe consumers have some responsibility to pay attention to what they're buying, and that's easily done when all you have to do is look with your eyes at the side of the container and see a single teaspoon contains three thousand calories and a million grams of saturated fat.

Guys. Chunks of angel food cake topped with apple pie filling and whipped cream. It is AMAZING. Probably fattening as hell, but it's a tasty treat after a really rough day.

Home made banana bread just came out of the oven. That baby is still steaming but Mmmmmmm.... <3 I'm terribly biased, but I haven't found another recipe just like it. Shame the loaf it makes is so small....

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup (leftover chicken, egg noodles, carrots, green beans and corn, low sodium chicken broth and whatever spices my mom put in there) and cornbread. Perfect meal for a icky damp day

Just ordered pizza from Marco's a few minutes ago. Now I'm watching husband play video games while waiting for it to arrive.
