Avoiding The Salmonella Side-Step

To make things a little easier with my new job and to save some money, I've been bringing my lunch every day to work. I can't be bothered making a sandwich at 5:30 in the morning, so I usually grab things like sunflower seeds, raisins, and energy bars like this one that I pulled out of the pantry.




I actually found a write up about this bar in a magazine I was reading this weekend:



I'm just thankful, that in addition to the case of energy bars, I also bought this:


Side note: I've eaten quite a few of these bars over the last 4 weeks. No problems as of yet. I had one yesterday afternoon as a matter of fact and so far..........be right back.

Too funny. I can't believe how far reaching this peanut thing is. I had to conduct an intervention w/my mom over her stash of cheese/peanut butter crackers...

I've gotten paranoid and stopped buying anything with peanut butter, even treats for the dog.

LOL@you! Um try a different brand!
Glad your job is doing well, and that you found a good deal on the TP!

What is the world coming to when we can't eat peanut butter! it's just not right.

Interesting. I agree with you totally. Furthermore I have another point to add. I think its essential that children today have a friendly and good swim instructor to guide them along. So that they will take to the hobby with delight, rather than find it a useless skill. But then again, most kids always love swimming afterall.

CJ said...

Yes, Alisha, I agree. But what if the little darlings poop in the pool after splurging on peanutbutter.

Cj,
Yoooo-hooooo
Time-Time-Time.
Where have you disappeared to? That new job keeping you from us?

Hahn at Home said...

I have some of those crackers too...better go toss them.

I make the kids make their lunch the night before - they don't want to do it at 6 in the morning either.

Happy Valentines Day, CJ!
