Tuesday Love...Peanut Butter & Diet Coke

Today I'm starting a new feature on Reinventing the Ordinary ...
Tuesday Love

To be honest,  though,  since this blog is only 2 months old ...  
every feature is new.
  Nonetheless, in an effort to let you know a little bit more about me ...
I've decided to let you in on some of the things I love ... my secret obsessions.  
Have you conjured up visions of  ..."Desperate Housewives" ?  Well ... I think my obsessions may be more along the line of   ...
 "I Love Lucy" ... rather than the girls from Wisteria Lane.

Food is always a good place to start.  When it comes to food ... for me ...
there isn't anything better than ...




Peanut Butter and Diet Coke!

Yes ... I confess ........... I am a


 Diet Coke Diva. 

 For me there is no other.  I have to say,  however ... that years ago,  I wouldn't touch anything diet.  I think you have to acquire a taste for diet drinks.  But,  once you've succumbed ...
 you're hooked.



I hate to admit to you how many of these bad boys I consume in one day. 
 Yes,  yes, I know ...
they're not all that good for you.  Believe me,  I get the lecture from my kids ... 
(that's a role reversal, huh?)

I do try to intersperse some water and juices into the mix occasionally ... but I just can't stay away from a nice,  ice-cold Diet Coke.  I guess my justification is that I don't drink coffee ... 
smoke ... or any other similar vices ... can't I have this one?


Oh ... and it has to be really,  really cold.  Cans are the only way to go ... 
they get much colder than bottles.  Occasionally ... and only if 
absolutely necessary ... a glass and some ice.  As a
Diet Coke connoisseur,  not a big fan of the ice ... when it melts
 it dilutes the pure goodness.

I told you I was a Diet Coke Diva.


And in the flow of ... you can't have one without the other ... my other obsession: 


Peanut Butter.

I'm going to be honest with you here ... and I know I can trust you not to pass this on ... I eat Peanut Butter every single day ... and sometimes twice a day.  
I won't go into the whys ... you've all tasted the smooth perfection that is Peanut Butter.  
My modus operandi is either Peanut Butter 
and Crackers ... the little 6 pact that comes all neatly packaged ... 
or Peanut Butter on a slice of fresh French bread ... heaven.   
True, there are other ways ... when the first two methods are unavailable
... but never with jelly.


Have I got you wondering what kind of cracker is writing this blog?  
Well,  if you think I'm a bit off,  let me add this ... I once lost 75 pounds
eating ...  almost entirely ...
  Peanut Butter and Diet Coke
 I kid you not.  There were a few veggies in there too ... 
(don't roll your eyes mom!)



Do you think this is enough for the weekend?

Well I think that's probably more than you ever wanted to know about my dietary obsession.  I've read your blogs ... I know you all advocate healthy diets and amazing recipes ... maybe some day I will actually cook one of them.  Unfortunately .... I can be a creature of habit 
... so for now I'm sticking to my

Out of the Ordinary Meals ... 


What are your food obsessions?  Come on we all have them.  
Time for your true confessions...

I love diet sodas! I just became a fan of diet 7up. I like the artificial sweetener better then sugar for some reason.

I love potatoes. There are nights when I want a midnight snack and make myself a loaded baked potato. I don't know why, it's really strange but I love them so much!

I also love apple juice. I feel like a 5 year old when I say that but it's another vice of mine. At least it's semi healthy...kinda.
