just. yes.

there are good ideas and then there are great ideas—

these are clearly in the latter category.

“Renowned for its indulgent blend of fresh, premium Irish dairy cream, the finest spirits, aged Irish whiskey and a unique chocolate blend, the iconic Bailey’s Original Irish Cream flavor profile pairs magically with rich, semi-sweet chocolate to create this decadent treat,” a  press release states. “Eat them by the handful on-the-go or mix into your favorite baked good recipe, these chips deliver on the flavor and smell of Bailey’s.”

World Food Day is celebrated every year around the world on October 16th in honor of the date of the founding of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in 1945. The day is celebrated widely by many other organizations concerned with food security, including the World Food Programme and the International Fund for Agricultural Development

Some 795 million people in the world do not have enough food to lead a healthy active life. That’s about one in nine people on earth.

“we know that a peaceful world cannot long exist,

one-third rich and two-thirds hungry.”

where hobbies, hijinks, and capers go bad = my childhood #5

Standard

while many kids of my era ate glue, paste, chalk, and crayons

i was busy with my own unusual eating habits

because we played outside for hours and hours

in the fields and open spaces of our neighborhood

most every day

i supplemented by ‘indoor diet’

with my own outdoor natural food diet

often consisting of:

pulp from a freshly fallen tree stump

rich, black, loamy soil

and baby ants.

not sure why i was drawn to each of these things

or why or how i stayed healthy

must have been all of the snow i ate in the winter months

but i’ve learned not to eat baby ants

and i’ve since moved on to chocolate, pasta, and flamin’ hot cheetos

 apparently i was one of the original clean eaters

quite by accident.
