I'm eating jubjubes for dinner. For those of you who automatically think to yourselves, "hmmm, Lorraine must be out of Alpha Bits" I say....well, I am, but that's not the reason.

The reason is that whenever I go to Arlene and John Boich's house, they have a keg of jubjubes on the table. They also have a jar of cashews on the counter. And tons of other great food, because they don't have children who eat said food the second it comes into the house. And the jubjubes they have are the soft gushy kind which mean they are high-end jujubes and not the cheap-o ones I'm eating that came from No Frills.

I was at their house on my way to No Frills. And of course I ate some of their awesome jujubes, and when I saw them at the store, I had to buy them.

I've cooked the past three nights, which around here amounts to a tryout for Next Great Chef or some such nonsense. Three dinners, three nights - IN A ROW - means I'm cooked out.

The boys were told I'd make grilled cheese, or they could fend for themselves. Both opted for the sandwiches, because they're lazy little cusses. But I do go gourmet: For Ari, I stuffed really good mozzarella into a sandwich with pepperoni. I told him it was grilled cheese pizza. Christer came in and spied the two sandwiches I had for him, and promptly assembled another one.

And while rumour has it I believe melting cheese on pretty much anything is the gateway to heaven, I realized the only thing I wanted was jujubes.

So, glass of wine and nasty little chewy bits.

Good night.....

Red or white wine with jujubes? Which is proper?

My word is cutaxi, much better than a homelytaxi.

I couldn't figure out what "jubjubes" were. Then I realized they must be No Frills jujubes. Or worse yet, Bulk Barn. If you're looking for a real workout for your jaw, Bulk Barn's your vendor of choice.

Melted cheese glorifies absolutely anything. Anything but oatmeal. That's just nasty no matter what you do to it.

Invest in a good quality panini grill. The family will revere you as a sandwich goddess... or something.

And ju-jubes will melt in a panini...

We buy our jujubes at Costco. Sorry. They come in a big purple and brown bag and I think they're called "Ultra" or something like that. They are the best! Even better than Dare's. Their coffee is great, too. Hazelnut Vanilla.

I should confess that John and Arlene also buy me that coffee.

I am spoiled.

I going there this afternoon....wishing I hadn't read this. Maybe jujubes would be a nice treat for the kids for March break, and some special coffee for mommy....sounds like perfect reasoning to me.
