Things You Should Buy

These are things you should buy because I bought/use them and/or they are AWESOME.

Coach’s Oats Oatmeal – I have been on the hunt for some good microwavable steel cut oatmeal ever since I tried Jamba Juice’s version. Coach’s Oats aren’t actually steel cut but is their own patented version of oatmeal that has the same consistency as steel cut oatmeal. Anyways, it just tastes GREAT. And best of all it is microwavable so I can eat it at work. I recently started eating my oatmeal with SOY SAUCE thanks to the recommendation of Louise and Mark Bittman. I LOVE it….I actually prefer it versus eating it the sweet way. It reminds me of eating congee. Don’t knock it til you try it! :)


Kasugai Milk Candy – I think these might cause cancer or something deadly like that but I don’t care. They are SO good. I am so going through a milk candy phase right now. Run to your nearest Japanese market and pick yourself up some of this milky goodness!


Olay In-Shower Body Lotion – This is the best invention ever. Well this is probably not for everyone but I have pretty dry skin…especially in the winter and I am really bad about using lotion. Ever since I was a little kid, I just hate touching lotion-y type stuff. Even now when I put lotion on my face every day I have to wash my hands immediately after! So yeah, you can forget about me using body lotion! BUT! This solves all of my problems….I have since added it to my shower routine (right after my body wash) and it’s so easy! And now I have smooth, slightly sparkling, yummy smelling skin. Yay! So if anyone has issues with using lotion…get this! You just put it on and rinse. No mess or stickiness to deal with!


Mustache ornament – Ok I don’t own this (yet) but one day when I get a Christmas tree this ornament will SO BE ON THERE. Yes, I know I’m weird.


So those are the things I’m loving right now.

Woohoo, another convert to the Church of Savory Oatmeal! I think the BF finally “gets it” now and is eating his oatmeal with chopped green onion, a dash of salt, and salted duck egg.

That in-shower body lotion is weird! Is it like conditioner for your skin? My legs get really dry after a shower and I always put lotion on afterward, but it doesn’t seem to help. Maybe I should try this thing, but doesn’t it take longer? It’s like…lathering twice.

I will have to try the salted duck egg with my oatmeal next! Sounds yummy.

I guess you can think of it as conditioner for your skin. It takes me maybe a few minutes to put it on and rinse…it rinses off pretty easily and I only put it on areas where I know have dry skin. I have noticed a difference since I started using it! For me it’s worth it because I’ve always been too lazy to put lotion on after and I don’t like the feel of lotion on my skin. This has no residue.

Trader Joe’s has an instant/microwaveable steel cut oats. Cheap, delicious, and healthy,
