rosemary & olive oil triscuits

On their own, Triscuit rosemary & olive oil crackers may not be all that exciting; but NYCE can find something large and pop culture-y to say about a new flavor of cracker, yes? Take your pick: A. Lookit all the Triscuit choices* (7, if you count the low fat/low salt axis), yet do we really need more more more? B. Is every run-of-the-mill food group eventually gonna undergo the premium-ization trend? C. Is that rosemary-olive-oil combo a bandwagon jump on the panmarino originated 10 yrs ago by the awesome West Coast chain Il Fornaio?

*original, cheddar, reduced fat, low sodium, deli-style rye, garden herb, roasted garlic

tg: i have been buying these for several months now, along with the garlic ones. i have always been a triscuit fan, and fairly often i let a few crackers and a glass (or so) of wine sub for a meal. i might add a bit of cheese if i think i really need some protein, but i like the spare, ascetic meal. makes me feel virturous, like heidi and her alm uncle just living on goat's milk, cheese and bread.

Paris' butt looks like some sort of cancer growth. My Katie has an ass made out of gold.

I once bought these wonderful parmesan and rosemary crackers in Virginia. It was at one of them fru fru stores with a nice cheese counter. It made for a good snack. Can't remember the name of them, but they were long and thin and cracker-like.

Tom, in US Weekly it recently said that you call your girlfriend Kate not Katie. I thought you might like to know.

You can't believe those rags. They actually indicated that i was married to somebody named ... well I forget her name. But it was never true. At home I like to call Katie "Toots" or "Hey, You."

meanwhile, the helpful kirk brings to the attention of Twisted Dog this
important story on dog treats (phew, that's a lotta linkin!)

I may have erroneously implied that my child/girlfriend/whatever's ass is better than mine. Before the rumors begin FLYING, I'd like to say that's not true. I check my ass in the mirror, from all angles, four or five times a day and can say with confidence that it's the envy of every gay man in America. Hooah!

That twisted potty-mouthed cur needs to realize that in many Third World nations it is a "people treat." Might we suggest a bearnaise sauce?

I hear the Korean are into it big time. Deep-Fried!

i used to get those frosty paws ice cream cups but kroger on mockingbird seems to have stopped selling them. (and twisted dog has a great blog, but he's not as cute as me -- or as fast either, if he can't catch someone on a bike)

i don't think koreans deep-fry very much, if at all, and a bit of kimchee would be a better flavor complement than bearnaise sauce.

YOU THINK I EAT THAT CHEAP SHIT? I USUALLY STICK TO HAAGEN DAZS, BUT AMY'S IN AUSTIN KICKS ASS WHEN I CAN GET THERE. IF THESE ICE CREAM MAKERS HAD ANY SENSE AT ALL THEY'D MAKE A NICE RICH CHARTREUX OR AN EXOTIC BALINESE. YUM!

I'd read somewhere - NOT US Weekly - that Tom Cruise had a "session" with a rock singer named Rob Thomas.

Tom Cruise is SO gay (and I would know). Sue me!

You (whomever you are) don't know gay. I KNOW gay.

Rob Thomas, however, is the aforementioned SO gay.

I'm gonna be glib and say I know the history behind GAY . . . you don't Tom!

Yeah? You come over here and I'll SHOW you gay, ok? What-ev-er.

Tom never could get it up with me either. In fact, I could never get him away from watching those Indiana Jones movies!

I don't know who any of you people are, but I will say that if you can't keep your man happy, you're gonna get dumped. (Hey nicole, is that your supposed cow POKE? ahahahah!!!!)

I really hate to disrupt the intellectual discourse, but thought I would mention that I bought a box of the Rosemary and Olive Oil Triscuiits today and found them to have a nice flavor, but it was overshadowed by excessive saltiness. WATER!!!! Pleeease!!!!!

you need salt in this kind of heat! but, yes, you are correct that they are salty, which may be one reason i like them. salt is better than sweet to me.

why does anyone pay any attention to tom cruise? he is such a namby-pamby, not half as sexy as montgomery clift was, or rock hudson for that matter. (and, yes, gay guys can be sexy)

if anyone is still out there,it just occurred to me that many people don't know the best way to eat canteloupe. my mother always served it as a side dish/salad, carved into wedges and chilled. just sprinkle with salt and coarse black pepper. even better than canteloupe with ice cream.

another old time treat, tho it is probably too late in the season to find. black-eyed peas that are more "snaps" than peas. that is, they are picked young, before the peas mature. the green bean like snaps have a great flavor and make wonderful pot likker.

gimmee my mother's fried chicken, her black-eyed peas and fresh canteloupe, and you can have your New American/trite American creations of the hot young turks

this is off the nyce subjects, but if anyone is interested in photography, do a google search for disfarmer. i discovered disfarmer in a nyt story that mysteriously disappeared when i was half way through. seems two galleries are doing exhibitions of his work. anyway, he was an eccentric arkansas photographer and his portraits are wonderfully disturbing.

Not what I was searching for, but none the less and interesting blog here. Thanks for putting it up. I've enjoyed reading alot of the text here. I got you bookmarked for the future, I'll be back.

My site is a bit different, some think it's odd. I guess it's a matter how you look at it. I have a penis enlargement reviews related site. Most of the articles are on penis enlargement reviews.

Help! I am lost. I was searching for thai restaurant and somehow ended up here. How that happened I don't know, however I do like your Blog a lot. Would you mind if I add your Blog to my favorites page so others can visit?

I skim a lot of blogs, and so far yours is in the Top 3 of my list of favorites. I'm going to dive in and try my hand at it, so wish me luck.

It'll be in a totally different area than yours (mine is about enlargement free penis) I know, it sounds strange, but it's like anything, once you learn more about it, it's pretty cool. It's mostly about enlargement free penis related articles and subjects.
