And now that I have that out of my system....I present lunch! :
I added a couple of slices of ham to the plate when I realized I hadn't included anything specifically in the way of protein. I should also note that was way too much cream cheese...hehe.
Kashi TLC Original 7 Grain Crackers
I'm cheap. I hate buying anything from the grocery store that isn't on sale....unless it's something that normally isn't way overpriced...say condensed soup...or a staple like milk. If there is a product I want to try, I wait for a sale. Almost everything in a supermarket goes on sale at some point. Of course, waiting for Kashi crackers to go on sale has been like waiting for all of this snow to melt....it never happens! Until finally the other day when I wasn't even in need of crackers, they finally appeared at 2 for $5....so I grabbed a box of the Original 7 Grain and a box of the Honey Sesame.
Upon first taste I wasn't too sure about these. I've waited so long to try them that I had them built up pretty high in my mind. They have the texture of a graham cracker, except maybe a bit harder. And because they aren't salty at all I was a little turned off. But after trying them again with some hummus, then again today with my lunch snack plate my opinion has been renewed. They are a hearty little cracker and certainly satiate my love of crunch without requiring half a box (like those evil Multigrain Wheat Thins). Definitely a better bang for the buck when they are on sale...since they will last much longer than the "junkier" snack crackers I usually have on hand. Problem is that I won't pay full price.
I haven't opened the Honey Sesame ones yet. I'm trying really hard not to have a bazillion boxes open in the cupboard these days. Once I finish something, then I can delve into those.
Hey, while searching the Canadian Kashi website I found a contest! Free Granola Bars!
