Crystal Light Mocktail Drink Mixes
Comments: As you know, a friend turned me onto Mio water enhancer and I love it. Well, another friend recently introduced me to Crystal Light’s new line of ‘Mocktail’ drink mixes! Yep, it’s all your favorite adult beverage flavors sans the alcohol! So far I’ve tried Margarita, Mojito and Appletini, all of which I like (though Margarita is my favorite). Now I just need to try the Peach Bellini (bet it’s awesome!) and Pomtini (pomegranate martini).

Ziploc VersaGlass Storage Containers
Comments: Though I own a Tupperware microwave rice cooker (and love it; it makes perfect rice every time!), I’m one of those old ladies that still prefers glass containers. And that’s why I was happy to see an affordable glass container alternative from Ziploc. They come in all sizes and assorted colors (lids). Naturally, I chose the orange. In addition to being glass, durable and reusable, they are also very versatile in the sense that they are made from VersaGlass, which can be frozen, microwaved, baked (in the oven) and are dishwater safe. Nice!

V-8 Potato Leek Soup
Comments: I happened upon this soup on the clearance rack at Target, for a mere $1.50. I bought it on a whim, but had I known how delicious and fresh-tasting it would be, I would have definitely bought more. Though I normally don’t ‘do’ soup and/or hot beverages until late Fall, Winter, I did try this recently and I’m hooked! Would definitely be a good complement to some toasted sourdough bread. In addition, next time I may top off the soup with a little shredded cheese and some chives. Perfection.
