I love that yellow box

by | Sep 10, 2012 | Blog | 0 comments

Everyone knows when they get a ‘little blue box’ that it comes from Tiffany’s, right?  But do you know what the yellow box is and why it comes around in September?  It’s the Mallomars Box!  My favorite cookie EVER and it is not available in the summer because of the heat.

How do I know that you ask?  I am not too proud to tell you that I struck up a ‘relationship’ with the Nabisco delivery guy in Price Chopper.  It started over a conversation in early June about where are the Mallomars Cookies?  And the rest is history.  My husband and I were out to dinner with friends one Saturday night in Saratoga.  Across the room I see ‘the Nabisco guy’ with his spouse and we go over to say hello and I introduce my husband.  His wife eyed me quite suspiciously.  Didn’t she know it was always about the cookies?

So Fall is here.  I am drinking some pumpkin spice brewed coffee and finished the rest of the cranberry/orange muffins from Sunday morning.  I have converted the courtyard/bistro to Fall with mums and a huge pumpkin.  The wreathes on the doors are all fall themed now. We have picked apples and made a wonderful apple crisp, thanks Chip for peeling all those apples.

It is monday morning and I never got around to posting this yesterday although it was written.  Amelia and I went searching for slugs for her bio class, eww, don’t ask; Jack had a paper that needed to be proofed; lunches to be made and the work week to start.

Good morning and have a super FALL day. I feel a crock pot dinner in my future…..

About Me

KarenHello and welcome.
I am often asked, “What is Pasta on the Floor?”
Pasta on the Floor is different for everyone. It is a recipe that tells a story and inspires them to try something new. For others, stories of family, joy, loss, and hope engage with them. This brings me a great deal of happiness. I do not take myself too seriously, so be forewarned the subject matter is open and truthful. In many ways, Pasta is a tale of life, and I think you will find familiarity and commonality as you scroll through these pages.
