Monday Edition: My Favorite Things

This is going to be the most random favorite thing I have ever posted about, but I just have to share! Last night, Michael and I decided to cook Chinese food. Of course with Chinese food you have to have egg rolls! Not having the talent or a clue of how to make egg rolls, Michael and I settled for the frozen variety. I am picky about my egg rolls, so I didn't expect much from a box of frozen egg rolls. I was so wrong! The egg rolls were delicious! They were even better than the ones we usually get from a local restaurant! If you are in the market for frozen egg rolls try Chung's. (We had the white meat chicken variety.) I know this brand is available at Kroger and Wal-Mart, but I'm pretty sure it is available at any chain grocery store. Oh, and an added bonus-there was a $1.00 coupon for Chung's Eggrolls in this Sunday's paper.
For those of you who do not share my love of frozen egg rolls, I will share a second favorite thing with you. Have you tried these?
Colgate Wisps are tiny disposable toothbrushes with a freshening bead. There is no need for toothpaste or water. I picked up a 2 brush package for $1.00 at Kroger the other day. I haven't used them yet, but I am totally in love with them! No need to keep a full sized toothbrush and toothpaste at the office anymore! I can just pop these little cuties in my purse and have fresh breath at my fingertips. If you visit the Colgate web-site, you can download a 50 cents off coupon.

P.S.-Blogger is giving me trouble right now, so please excuse the lack of comments I have made on your blogs. Blogger won't let me comment. Hopefully, this issue will be resolved soon! I'm still reading your posts. I'm just not able to comment.

Love those egg rolls. And, if any of your readers are on Weight Watchers, I served these at a holiday party last year and one of my neighbors said they are low point value.

Blogger is giving me trouble too! It keeps deleting people from my blogroll and then when I discover they are gone I feel terrible because I have not been leaving them comments.

A couple of weekends ago my girlfriend and I went out for pizza and it came with some of the most delicious garlic rolls...Thank goodness for those Wisp things!!! Freshened us up real quick for our night out. No need for water, rinsing or spitting! It was fantastic.
