Temperatures in Ocala reached the low 80s today. We’re relishing the gorgeous weather!
I cannot tell you how fantastic it feels to be able to step outside and not immediately start sweating.
Since Ryan and I wanted to eat dinner outside today, I didn’t want to make a meal that was too warm. While 80 degrees is cooler than usual, it’s not exactly chilly, so I figured an entrée that was nice and cold would be fun to eat by the pool.
I made simple seafood salad subs by combining imitation crab crab meat with light Miracle Whip (don’t hate!), mustard, sweet relish and chopped red onion.
Served with a side of roasted green beans.
And then Ryan and I shared a bag of peach rings for dessert. Mmm.
I never used to think peach rings were that good until Ryan got me hooked on them. I think they taste best when they’re slightly stale, a little hard and extra chewy.
Speaking of stale food, my mom loves stale Peeps!
Did you know that they make about two billion different kinds of Peeps annually? The things you learn when doing a Google images search…
The Worst Halloween Candy
All this candy talk has me excited for Halloween! Now that we live in a real neighborhood, I’m hoping we’ll get trick-or-treaters this year. I’ll be sure to pass out erasers, pennies and pencils.
Just kidding. Puh-lease. We’ll definitely be handing out toothbrushes. I mean candy. C’mon! I’d give away ice cream if I could.
When I was a kid I was all about 100 Grand bars (a rarity), Almond Joys (no one else liked these, so I got them all) and KitKats.
The worst candy? Definitely Bit-O-Honey.
Runner up: Weird gobs of peanutty goo wrapped in orange and black wax paper.
People who pass out that candy should be fined and then their taste buds should be thoroughly examined… along with their souls.
Does anyone actually like that stuff?
