I’m in shape. . . “round” is a shape, right?

Posted on Updated on

I think the "October" plate adds a nice touch of class.

I am sick.  And when I am sick, several things can happen.  These may include:  1)  my social filter switching to “off”; 2)  impulse control going out the window; and 3)  delirium.  So I’m thinking all three played some role in my thinking that posting this would be a good idea.

Anyhoo, I have found my new favorite recipe.  It’s so simple and easy to do.  Now I don’t recommend this for everyone, but if you’re feeling like I do right now, this might be just the thing for you.  Here’s what you need:

1.  Place handful of Cheez-its in mouth.

2.  Add rum.

3.  Enjoy!  Repeat as necessary.

Notes — This is just like that old staple of wine and cheese — except that there’s no wine and no cheese. . . I wouldn’t recommend a spiced rum for this.  I don’t think the flavor profiles would work well with the Cheez-its.  And it would be best if the rum had some age to it, but don’t go wasting some 30-year-old stuff on this recipe. . . Pretzels might work in a pinch, but I like the more diverse tastes you get from the Cheez-its

    Ha ha, great recipe!
    I grew up eating boxfuls of CheezIts (sans rum of course). This post made me nostalgic.

      Great point — cheezits are fabulous without rum too!

    I was on here at 9pm looking for cookies to make – but I’m thinking that this recipe really is on the money. Step three being imperative. Love your work!

    This reminds me of my husband. He swears by cheap red wine and Xtreme Cheddar Goldfish. 🙂 I hope that you feel better. And your title totally reminded me of a Sunny in Philadelphia episode – “cultivating mass.” We have a running joke going about that at home right now too. 😉

    roflmao!!! This has got to be the best recipe yet, but I think I’ll substitute a nice cup of wine for the rum as I’m allergic to it! I absolute LOVE Cheezits! When I was in high school, which was just yesterday (don’t I wish!), I used to have two bags of Cheezits, an ice cream sandwich and a coke. Now that’s what I call good nutrition!

    I hope you are feeling better today, Jereme and I want to thank you for visiting my blog! I’m glad you liked it.
