Day 324-Manic Monday-What Are Your Top Three?

*This post may contain affiliate links, please check my disclosure.

Hey and welcome to another renamed day of the week for Kimmy’s Patio…Manic Monday, cause that’s how most of them feel to me.

Do you find that you are running to the store more often for the same three things? Well, when I was eating like everyone else and smoking, it used to be milk, bread, and cigarettes.

Real butter, full fat

Now that I eat more like a caveman, it’s butter, coconut oil, and tea! I use Kerrygold butter in my coffee every day and on my sweet potatoes at least twice, sometimes more a week. I need the healthy fats in my diet. The next thing is coconut oil, and here lately, I have been going less because I bought two big jars of Nature’s Way brand last time I went to the Sunflower Shoppe because they had a bogo sale.

32 oz jar, such a good deal on bogo

I need to buy it by the gallon, as much as I use! The third thing is tea.  Now,  I don’t know about you, but in the summer time, I go through ice tea, well…like water, lol! So I am always having to buy the big box of family sized bags to make my pitchers of iced tea.

My preferred brand

What are your serial three products? The ones you have to buy over and over again? Just curious because I was going to remind you that Amazon sells just about everything these days, even produce!!! Click on the link and it will take you to the review I wrote over on my website. It is amazing how many products and services this company covers. The new one is Prime Fresh and that’s where you get the produce I spoke of earlier.

Would you ever consider buying your produce through the mail? I’m just curious, lot’s of folks don’t seem to want to go shopping the traditional way anymore. Maybe the convenience of shopping from home is more appealing to some folks, or maybe it’s a necessity. Either way, it is so nice to know that Amazon provides a service like that, yes it comes at a price, but it may be worth it to you. Let me know how you feel in the comments.

Many Happy Desserts

Sometimes, even people following the Paleo lifestyle like a sweet treat. Which is why I consulted my Pinterest board for some tasty ideas for ice cream-Paleofied of course! On my Everything Paleo board, I found a tempting looking ice cream called Caramel Almond Crunch from http://Flavourandsavour.com. Well, to make a long story short, I had no dates. Dates, evidently make the best caramel…not raisins. Which I subbed. Not horrible and with a few tweaks, I believe I can improve the flavor. Butter makes everything better right? My favorite (and only) butter is http://Kerrygold.com brand because it is grass-fed and simply delicious. I think if I heat the “mistake” up in a saucepan and add some butter, I’ll save this mess of a dessert I made. Now, the ice cream itself was frozen bananas, blended to a creamy texture. Then came the caramel and on top, my favorite homemade trail mix, Maple Nut Trail Mix from http://Dontmesswithmama.com.

Like I said, pretty good but could have been better. When in the kitchen, mistakes are how you learn, become inventive, and sometimes even create a new masterpiece. What are your food fails? I’d love to hear them, or any suggestions on how I might improve this one! All comments are welcome, here on the patio!
