This Little Piggy Went To The Market.....I Mean Williams Sonoma

This little piggy went to market;This little piggy stayed home;This little piggy had roast beef;And this little piggy had none;And this little piggy cried, "Wee, wee, wee!"All the way home.

Okay, so sometimes I go a bit overboard. I like to cook but I also love to go out to eat and I also love to order food items in the mail. Whoever invented dry ice is a GENIUS. Okay I stand corrected see following information:

As a natural substance, Dry Ice is not an invention, Dry Ice was discovered, however, the name was trademarked. The Dry Ice Corporation of America first trademarked the name Dry Ice in 1925.

Who knew?? Anyway....I love Kansas City Steaks.....especially the bacon cheese steakburgers preferrably the 4 oz'ers. I always have them in my freezer. I love the chicken breasts from Schwans and also always have those on hand. Caribou Coffee Fireside Blend, which I now have to order because there is NO Caribou in LR. Baker's Cinnamon Filling from King Arthur Four in Vermont (makes the BEST cinnamon rolls hands down).
Williams Sonoma has had some of the yummiest treats in their catalog for the Holidays and so my list goes: Cheddar & Bacon Gougere's (Dr. Oz would not be happy), Arancini--creamy risotto balls breaded and fried to a golden brown (this is why I eat 2 Tblsp of flax meal seed a day), assorted empanadas (a shout out to all my Latin American friends cause everyone knows I have so many), and least but not last assorted Tamales (ooooooooh Santa, I have been a baaaaaad girrrrrrrrl). Of course I am going to bake a wheel of Brie over the Holidays, eat my homemade ice cream and do some other appetizers of my choosing, but I can't help but take some help from my friends at Williams Sonoma. So I think it is very important this Holiday Season to bow your head in a moment of silence and be thankful we have Fed Ex Next Day, UPS Overnight, and of course DRY ICE. Without these wonderful modern day inventions This Little Piggy Might Actually Have To Go To The Market!!!

HA! I love it.. very true. I loved Schwans growing up! We always ordered it! I will have to try some of the Tamales!

The tamales are from WS. It is hard to get a good tamale in AR. The place in CA where we lived had this yummy goat cheese and roasted vegetable tamale that I loved. I lived in TX for 2 years but hadn't yet discovered the tamale back there in '96. I was still a young pup with an underdeveloped palatte back then.

Oh, the Schwans man rocked! Sherbert push-up pops were the best!!
P.S. I made lassies for the office party today- results later.

I made the tassies for the James Family Christmas party-GREAT SUCCESS! They loved them. Hands down favorite-even over the 3 layer chocolate-mint Christmas cookie-which took much more time! I shared the recipe with my busy working mother niece. Great idea for busy Moms! Thanks for sharing!

Glad everyone liked Tassies. I made 72 of them over the weekend and my own family has devoured most of them.
