    There’s a thick sloppy spread of new snow out there today…hello snowball fight! As a kid I was a wickedgood snowball sniper…I didn’t have a power arm but I had dead on aim. Jimmy the neighborhood bully got nailed every time…HA!
    My all time fave aftersnowball snack was hot chocolate with marshmallows and a blueberry Pop Tart. I always ate it straight from the toaster and always burned my mouth cuz I couldn’t wait for it to cool off. Snowball champs are tough like that. ;)

    I don’t eat boxed Pop Tarts anymore…according to PETA’s Accidentally Vegan Food List, Kellogg’s Unfrosted Blueberry, Strawberry and Brown Sugar Pop-Tarts are vegan, but reading their ingredient lists makes my head hurt. So it’s homemade blueberry pastries FTW! :)
