Bye-bye hubby... and Junk food.

Jack left for work again today.  We are all sad and a little out of sorts- like we usually are when he has to go.  When he leaves I usually have to sweep the house for any junk food and trash it. This is what I found today:
A bad and a half of marshmallows.  A half container of chocolate meringues.  A bag of tortilla chips.  Half a sleeve of saltines.  And ONE Ghirardelli chocolate square. (I don't know how the Ghirardelli square made it past him.)  Really- this is not too bad for Jack.  The saltines were my brother's... leftover from his visit last weekend.  They and the tortilla chips are major weaknesses for me and must go.  The meringues are not tempting to me AT ALL and I may just save them for the next time Jack is home.  I will put the unopened marshmallows out of my sight and save them for the next time we cook out and make s'mores. And the Ghirardelli square I will give to Anna the next time she is here.  So really I am just trashing the saltines, tortilla chips, and the opened bag of marshmallows!  Not too bad.  Usually when Jack leaves I have to pitch moon pies, Ben & Jerry's, and fudge rounds!  But this trip he asked me not to buy him that stuff.  Great!  There is less going to waste.  I do have to admit I am treating myself to some of the tortilla chips tonight.... yummy.  But tomorrow they are on their way to the landfill- in all their sodium holding glory!  Peace out!

Sar,

I don't think Saltines count as junk food....hmmmm....maybe you should do a poll. I thought they were a food group?

Love!

Oh good - Thanks - I didn't think I would have to ask... As soon as I read the title I got really close to my laptop to see what Jack had that I could eat. And I was like "Is that a mint chocolate Ghirardelli square?? It is! Why would he have left that?? Hummmm....Must have fallen out of the bag and he missed it... ha ha ha ha! It's too late now Jack! All for Bucky!!" lol

I side with Ri - saltines are part of that health pyramid thing.
