I’m going to keep the “Five of your favorite things” party going today. Thanks to Leigh Anne and Amy yesterday for sharing with us. You’ll know me really well by the end. Ok here goes!

  1. Twizzlers — You have no idea how I love these guys. They have to be the strawberry twists. And they are low-fat, people! These are a staple at our Kindergarten team meetings each week. And they are the only candy my husband and I will eat at the movies. We give them to each other in our Christmas stockings. Yup…we’re weird.

This post is part of the annual month-long Slice of Life writing challenge organized by Two Writing Teachers. Join us! It’s my first time slicing and apparently I’m an “Early Morning Slicer,” too!

  1. You can’t go wrong with your list. I see brownies are going to be popular and different varieties of them is fantastic. Honestly, I’ll be first in line for Raspberry Lime Rickey. It looks so refreshing. Thanks for joining in on the fun!

  2. What a fun post! I have never heard of a Raspberry Lime Rickey- but it looks like my kind of drink. And the Ghirardelli Brownies- going to be on the lookout for those next time I go grocery shopping- thanks for sharing.


      1. I don’t know if it is. I have the recipe for years. Let me know if you would like a copy. It’s basically a boxed caked with a few add-ins.


  3. Need to try this challenge. May be tough to narrow down to 5. I too LOVE Twizzlers, but since I discovered I am gluten intolerant they have been banished from my life. Alas, you can enjoy my Twizzlers for me.

  4. Thanks for sharing! I’m going to steal this idea for my post today! I absolutely love twizzlers. I can seriously eat the big bag of them myself. It’s so easy just to keep chewing on them!


  5. What a great idea! I think I may need to borrow this for my post tomorrow! And pork…YUM! You could possibly combine 2 of your favorites…brownies and bacon! Have you ever had a cupcake with bacon? My mouth is watering just thinking about it! Double YUM! And never apologize for things you love! 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing this slice about you!
