Fun on the Run

I normally stay away from fast food and junk food, but every now and then I just have to have a corn dog. I grew up calling them dip dogs. My mother actually made homemade ones, which were quite tasty.

While making a pit stop at the Pilot station in Dalton, Ga. today, I indulged in a $1 corn dog.

 Loved the label--Fun on the Run!

Bill, meanwhile, was having his own "Fun on the Run"--a billion ounce Diet Coke. He pointed out that there is one size even larger.

It'd take me a week to drink that.

Speaking of drinks, we stopped at Trader Joe's to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Charles Shaw Wines by purchasing a couple of cases of "Two Buck Chuck." We arrived just in time for the store's 2 pm wine tasting. After the tasting, we browsed for a bit and picked up a few more things, including these Wasabi Roasted Seaweed Snacks--half a bag has 30 calories, 2 grams fat, and 1 gram carbs.

That puts them on the opposite end of the health-o-meter from that corn dog. Balances things out, don't you think?

Fun on the Run. That's what we're having.

  1. Wow! Wine in grocery stores. What a civilized concept. Too bad the liquor store lobby has our state lawmakers in its tight little grasp and we can't have wine in our grocery stores.
