Current food obsessions

I’m currently hooked on KIND snack bars, specifically the Sesame & Peanut with chocolate variety.

Not only are these sesame bars super yummy but they’re also full of hippie goodness: no trans fats, non GMO, wheat and gluten free, low sodium. KIND is a PeaceWorks brand, and gives 5% of its profits to OneVoice, described on the packaging as “empowering moderates against extremism in the Middle East.”

My next most recent food obsession is the Tomolive. Have you heard about the Tomolive?

Jess is to blame for this one. The Tomolive is a specially grown and pickled little olive-sized green tomato. It is the perfect garnish for a martini but beyond that, I could munch down a jar of these little beauties for a snack, no problem. Holy cow are they addictive! And, apparently, incredibly difficult to find! Jess was tipped off to their existence when he was off on some computer game industry jaunt and went looking for them, only to find they were out of stock and while another batch was being cooked up, he was warned off the bat that he’d better place a pre-order right then or risk missing out. Jess ordered up a case on the spot and he’s been sharing his tomolive largess with us at game night. I’m not usually a “martinis on Tuesday night” kind of girl but the tomolive martinis are too good to pass up.

  • Perhaps you could try planting some cherry tomato plants next spring and then pickling the little guys while they are green? One variety I’d reccomend is “Sweet Millions”, which is hella prolific.

    • I tried on and immediately said “I’ll bet I could make these at home.” If I can get my tomatoes to grow, that is. Our weather was pretty crappy this year and I got all of two actual tomatoes to maturity off four little plants this year. Still, great minds think alike, Doc. Wish you lived closer, we could team up and I could pickle *your* little green tomatoes. :)
