Mmmm, The Schwan's Truck

Okay, so our latest discovery is blackberry juice from the Schwan's truck. It's the BEST! You know how you get nice cold water, and about 3 minutes later, it tastes warm? Well, not our blackberry juice! No, no. It tastes cold a good couple hours later (which is about how long it takes me to drink something!).

We love Schwan's hot dogs - the skinless franks. I don't know what it is about them, but they're the bomb. They come in a box with 5 hot dogs in each pack - not quite sure how many packs there are.....8 maybe?

And the Lemon Freeze Cups. Run out of these constantly. The cherry kind are good, but a little too sweet. Lemon gives you a little refreshing kick, and it's nice and cold, but sweet too. We bought 2 boxes of these last week. 24 in the 2 boxes, and we've gone through 9. Not bad, eh? Why you ask? Cause we've been busy drinking the blackberry juice, I tell 'ya!

The downside of Schwan's is the price. Wowee! You can spend 60 bucks a month if you're not careful! We're sitting at about 30 bucks a month this month.....but thanks to my Aldi trip today, we're sittin' pretty good. Yes, I - Me - bought crab meat for 1.99 today at Aldi. Any good crab recipes? I spent an hour - could have been longer - looking through cookbooks tonight when I could have been doing something productive....like cleaning the mirrors and windows in my house? That would have been productive.

And the last thought of the day: there's a new garage sale thing in Cedar Falls. I've only heard about it, so correct me if I heard wrong. Every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. There's a building that will be set up for "garage" sales. Costs $1 for admission into the place, and a certain amount to set your own table up in there. So there's lots of different family sales in one place - now why didn't I think of that??? So I'm going this week. Yes, 2 days. I'm counting down already.....now it's less than 1 1/2 days to be exact.....urr, more exact anyway. Completely excited! :)

It DOES sound good. Yummie.

I don't have any crab recipes. Well, one. But it's crab dip.

That juice sounds awesome! Hmmm - it's tempting. I wonder if the Schwan's man will come out in the boonies where I'm going to reside soon?

I was wrong - it's black raspberry. But it's still awesome!

Angela said...

Still sounds good!
