God Bless Nabisco

How's this for trivial? I've been on the South Beach diet for months....and though it's been successful, and definitely an easy thing for me to do, I still occasionally have a hankering for some good ol' sweet-tooth-quenching. We don't own any white flour and no regular sugar or brown sugar. Everything is whole wheat (pasta, bread, brown rice, etc). The family has been super supportive with this decision. I have restricted all my "goodies" to sugar free items and I have had enough of Splenda products to last a lifetime. While I was at the grocery store last week, I saw Bradley eye-balling some Oreos. The halloween version with the orange middles....you know what I'm talking about. He didn't say a word about them when I impulsively asked, "Should we get those since it's Halloween?" Well naturally he said, "Sure, Mom!"

I had the grand opportunity to teach the monkeys how to dip the Oreos in ice-cold milk and enjoy. You sometimes forget who teaches you these basic survival skills. I'm proud to be documenting this one. The next lesson will be twisting them apart to enjoy each piece of the cookie one at a time.
It had been 5 1/2 years since I had bought Oreos. Steven doesn't have much of a sweet tooth. If you ask him, he'd much rather have a Dr Pepper and Red Vines before any sort of dessert item. Werido. I enjoyed the sugar rush and would recommend everyone go and do the same. One must divulge once in while to remain sain. And, yes, the term "once in a while" is up for interpretation.

OREOs are seriously mana from heaven. I love how they do the holiday ones with different colored cream filling - SO GOOD. It is comforting to know that I'm not the only one who loves getting my teeth black and cookie covered.

I'm so glad you did that because the first part of this post was making me feel really guilty about the 2 cupcakes I just downed. :) Good for you, throw caution (diets) to the wind! It's officially the holidays. :)

I can never turn down a mint oreo, and lucky for me (or maybe not so lucky) they ONLY make them double stuffed (= yum.

Once for April Fools Day my dad scraped out the creme filling in all the OREOS and replaced it with white toothpaste! Disgusting but FUNNY! Maybe you should try it-- your kids might not want OREOS for a while after that.
