Cherry Popper

Hello World!….As WordPress liked to name my first post. I deleted that first thing. I am popping my blog cherry by writing my first blog post, ever.

I will begin with the obvious– an explanation of my somewhat vulgar sounding name. Once you hear the background, I am sure you’ll enjoy it as much as I do.

I live for peanut butter, well, food really. I gawk over sweets, salts, food in general. However, my affinity for fitness and a healthy lifestyle is just as prominent. I’m basically that girl who goes to the gym 6 days a week but can also scarf down as much food as her 180 lb. boyfriend. (Or however much he weighs?) By the way, Joe’s gym and eating habits mimic mine, which is probably one of the reasons we get a long so well.

So back to the peanut butter. I’ve always loved it, but once Joe and I meshed our absurd obsession with whip cream and sprinkles, it was over. We usually enjoy a protein shake after the gym, followed by a little something that looks like this:

PB, Whip, & Sprinks

PB, Whip, and Sprinks

  • Skippy Natural Peanut Butter: The only kind we buy
  • “Bakery Fresh” Sprinkles: We still wonder what makes them fresh
  • Frozen Fat Free Whipped Topping: Stop & Shop brand: We go through 4 a week now
  • A spoon (please see below)

It’s all downhill from here. With no portion control, it’s a Sprinkle Massacre, as Joe named it.

Peanut butter-less, because it is currently my lenten sacrifrice

Sugary goodness

Unfortunately, I gave up Peanut Butter for lent (I don’t want to talk about it), so this picture would usually have a heaping glob of peanut butter under the whip, since the correct order is PB, whip, then dip in sprinks. I promise I will provide a gluttonous picture of what it usually looks like, right after Easter.

The second part of my story may be even better. One day, while lying in bed, Joe came in the room with a look of guilt on his face. This was right after I heard some noise going on in the kitchen that I couldn’t quite figure out.

“It was a sprinkle massacre”, Joe said.

Unfortunately I did not get a picture, but as you can see from the pictures above, the sprinkle containers are quite odd and hard to open. Apparently Joe was so anxious to get at them that while attempting to take the lid off, he spilled an entire container ALL OVER THE KITCHEN FLOOR. We lost all of those poor little guys. Sprinkle-less, for a week, until I made my weekly grocery store trip.

That concludes the story of my life, I mean, the name of my blog. Please look forward to posts regarding my crazy food concoctions, cooking/baking attempts and inventions, my fitness regimen, healthy lifestyle related issues, and FASHION, because that is my other true love in life.

Food, Fitness, & Fashion,

Jillian
