Greetings from the Jersey Shore! Hope you’re all enjoying your Fourth of July weekend! I’ve been having a nice time walking around and reading and reapplying sunscreen. Last night we played Scrabble and I fell asleep at 10:30. Ultra-exciting, I know, but you gotta unplug once in a while.

As always, my mom came armed with a full supply of groceries, so we’ve been doing some cooking. Yesterday, I discovered that white anchovies taste great on a sandwich with hummus and veggies. Weird, but amazing.

Also, I am newly obsessed with topping yogurt with raw oats. Why had I never tried this before? It’s opened up a whole new world to me.

Something else I may need to get into when I get back to NYC is those Arnold’s Sandwich Thins. I hate to admit it, but they really do up the enjoyment factor a lot. I know I try to avoid “producty” things, but once in a while, the extra $1.50 isn’t going to break the bank.

Whoa, one of my sister’s friends just walked in and said she was puking out her nose last night after a trip to a local bar. I didn’t even know that was possible. Is it bad that I find that fascinating? I guess it makes sense though…Feel better, Mel!
