Monday Munchies – Ben & Jerry’s Limited Batch Cannoli

I always love when Ben & Jerry’s announces new flavors.  It’s a treat to try to go out and find them.  And it’s a joy to sample the flavors and see what I love and what I loathe; it seems for every Rocky Road-ish there’s a Fair Goodness Cake. 

And the announcement of Cannoli certainly got my attention.  I wasn’t really up on my ice cream game when Holy Cannoli came out back in 1997, but based on what I’ve read up about it, it seems like something I’d dig. 

So, I was eager to taste the remix.

Sunday Morning Quarterback - Jeremy Renner & Maroon 5

I will admit to being a little excited about this week’s Saturday Night Live.   I’ve been a supporter of Jeremy Renner for almost a decade now.  He came onto my radar via The It Factor, back when Bravo had reality shows that a) were vaguely grounded in reality and b) were still worth watching. 

Anyway, I was curious to see what he going to do with the SNL stage, especially since he’s not really known for comedy.  Basically I was hoping for the best and bracing for the worst (which was actually a theme for me this week, maybe I’ll explain in a future post.)

Let’s dive right in.

Monday Munchies - Green Tea Kit Kat

I feel guilty about only resurrecting Sunday Morning Quarterback.  Yes, life is hectic, but I could probably make time to put some more effort into Fish & Spaghetti.

And this is my attempt to do just that.  I'm making a valiant effort to bring Monday Munchies back, starting today.  Starting with Green Tea Kit Kat.

Did I make the right call?

Sunday Morning Quarterback - Anne Hathaway & Rihanna

I can’t front; I had a crazy week.  My week was either a rollercoaster or a yo-yo (I still haven’t determined which is more applicable.)  Suffice it to say; I had zero time to contemplate this week’s episode of Saturday Night Live. 

I vaguely recall being slightly excited by the prospect of Anne Hathaway hosting this week, when I heard who was hosting during last week’s episode.  But in all fairness that could have just been residual love from her portrayal of Selina Kyle in The Dark Knight Rises.  How awesome was that movie? 

But back to SNL…

Sunday Morning Quarterback – Louis C. K. & fun

I had high hopes for this episode of Saturday Night Live.  It wasn’t just because Louis C. K. was hosting and he’s about as funny as a comedian can get.  And it wasn’t because the last few episodes of SNL have been dismal at best. 

It was also because, despite the Sandy giving me a three-day workweek, it felt like the longest week ever and I really needed to believe that comedy could live.  I needed this episode to remind me that comedy was still possible.
