Litelysalted's Favorite Things

You know how Oprah has that show, "Oprah's Favorite Things?" Well these are my favorite things. Only you don't get any of them, unless you go buy them yourself. Sorry, I'm not rich like "Oprah" so I can't "afford it." Oh, and by the way, before you go thinking I love Oprah... I've only ever seen her show like a couple of times in my life. Although I actually did see a "favorite things" episode, when my old roommate Megan The Mean Fake Hippie made me watch it. So there!

Morningstar Farms new Philly Cheesesteak Burgers. These things are a little slice of heaven. Grill em up, and bake em on a kaiser roll with some cheese and sweet peppers. My god!

J Crew's "Critter" collection. If anyone ever needed even more evidence that I am a Huge Nerd, here it is. I will literally buy anything that has cute little things embroidered on it. I have shirts, tanks, sweaters, skirts, handbags, lounge pants, flip flops, belts, hats, and even nighties with an assortment of little animals, bugs, fruits, and even modes of transportation. There must come a point in every woman's life, when they hit their late twenties and suddenly decide it's time to start dressing like a grownup and stop wearing clothes with stupid things on them. Luckily for me, that day hasn't come yet!

Amigo Bagels, from my local bagel joint. I don't know why they call them Amigo Bagels, because that translates to "Friend Bagels." Hee! Friend Bagels! But they are jam packed with jalapeno-ey salsa goodness and that's all that matters to me.

The Magic Bullet. Well, it would be one of my favorite things if Mister LitelySalted would let me get one. But apparently he thinks I should have learned my lesson from The Pasta Pot (with lid draining action) and The Quick Chop (that had blades as sharp as a pre-schooler's plastic scissors.)

Hardy's Stamp of Australia boxed wines. Now we all know I'm a classy broad, right? Stop that snickering, you! Regardless. I have no problem drinking wine out of a box, just so long it doesn't taste like swill. Well not only does Hardy's not taste like swill, but it is actually pretty good! (That should be their selling point: Hardy's: doesn't taste like swill!) So far I have tried the Shiraz and the Riesling and I believe that they are comparable to higher priced bottled versions. Hardy's costs approximately $15-$20 for a 3-liter box, which amounts to about 4 bottles.

TV Shows on DVD. There's something you should know about me. I'm the world's biggest TV junkie. If I have seen a show at least 3 times and enjoyed it, chances are I own it, have contemplated (or am planning on) purchasing, or have rented from Netflix. Actual examples include: Angel, Different Strokes, Heathcliff & the Catillac Cats, Quantum Leap, Night Court, Beavis and Butthead, The Monkees, The Wonder Years*, The Pink Panther collection, Amazing Stories (Holy crapcakes! That comes out today!), Supernatural, and Alf. Because of financial and space constraints, I am already behind a season or two (I gave up on the Simpsons about 5 seasons ago) on shows I love like NewsRadio and Kids in the Hall.

*The Wonder Years isn't actually available on DVD as of yet, due to music licensing issues with it's amazing soundtrack. But you know when it does become available I will be pre-ordering it from Amazon in a hot minute!

mr. litelysalted may also be somewhat intimidated by the magic bullet. i imagine if i were a male i would wonder about it's various functions. Ahem!

also, i love heathcliff. it always ticked me off that garfield was more popular than him.
