Quick and Easy Cherry Coconut Fluff Dessert Recipe

My husband and I were invited to a summer cookout and volleyball extravaganza. Like all good Midwesterners, we automatically knew that includes bringing food for the potluck portion of the party. Unfortunately, earlier in the week due to a raging thunderstorm that took down power line followed by temperatures that shot up into the 90’s (F ) our electric company gave a huge chunk of the state the gift of multiday rolling blackouts early in the week.

I Learned an Important Lesson at Whole Foods Today

Love it or hate it, Whole Foods is a good place to shop if you have a food allergy since they seem to carry every variation of traditional foods you are allergic to or need a substitute for a nontraditional diet.

When I learned a new shopping area was going to include a Whole Foods, every time I drove past it I  silently urged them to 'build faster'.

What a good excuse to go to Whole Food! Grab my two things, check some prices on  some bulk bin items, wander the store a bit, and zip home, right?

I learned something today.

It isn't a good idea to go to a store that sells food after Piyo class.

 I knew this was going to happen.
 


At least I now know it happened sooner rather than later.
