Silly..

…that’s what I am. An impulse purchase at the Made in Hawaii Festival this weekend left me with a dozen Maui onion sausages, 35 bags of animal cookies, and a TOWEL. The sausages I can justify: we’ll eventually eat them all with eggs and rice for breakfast.

But the animal cookies? You see, I just wanted the towel because it was sooo cute. But in order to get the towel you had either a) buy two animal cookie ‘pillow packs’ at $5/pack (each pack has 15-20 bags of cookies)and get the towel for free OR b) buy just the towel for $5. Being so Chinese, I decided that buying the towel alone wouldn’t be a very good bargain, so instead I bought the cookies! Of course the thought never occurred to me that 35 bags of animal cookies is a lot of cookies, and it wasn’t until I unpacked the bags at home that I started to wonder, “how the heck will I finish all these cookies?” It’s a good think I really like animal cookies, especially the ones made by Diamond Head Bakery. We got a good assortment of flavors: original, Maui sugar and cinnamon. Ginger is my favorite flavor, but they were out…oh well. I’ll be pretty well cookie-stocked for a while!

And here’s the towel! Isn’t it darling? All those sea creatures depict the different cookie shapes! You’ve got Sharks (Mano), Octopus (He’e), Moonfish (Opah), Dolphins (Nai’a), and the Humpback Whale (Kohola)!

This is the best part: “We’re Onolicious!”

    I like to eat animal crackers with peanut butter. Actually, I spread a layer of peanut butter on a plate, then stick the animal crackers in the peanut butter so they’re standing up, and then pretend I’m on a safari. Yeah, I know. I have no life. :-(:-)

    Hey Pinkiiish!The ginger ones are the best ever! Coconut ones are only okay…but in the end, I guess it’s the orignal that rules, lol! :)Hey Ron!I’m all excited to go to the beach with my new-super-duper-cool towel! lol :) Remember, I can’t deal with lawsuits! :)Hey Kat!oooh, good idea! Funny you should mention blueberry cream cheese…I’ve been craving a blueberry cc pie for the longest time! :)Hey Mavro!Bwahahaha! That’s the best idea ever! Even though its near midnight, and I am totally stuffed…I think I’ll go make myself a safari and eat it! Awesome! :)Only…wait. It couldn’t be a safari cause these are all sea creatures…I’ll pretend I’m on a fishing expedition! ;)

    Now that’s what I call shopping…but ONLY a dozen Maui onion sausages? I regret not buying 2 dozen portuguese chorizo when I went to Portugal! (bought only 2)But as for the cookies…heh heh…I can just imagine the look on my husband’s face if I walked into the house with that stash. I’d have a good excuse though…Maddie always needs bath towels! And that one you got is too cute. :-)

    Hey Rowena!Welcome back! :) Ahh Portugal, I’m suddenly reminded of the egg tarts you posted a while back…postively blissful! It’s comforting to know that I’m in good company when it comes to buying excess of food I don’t need, lol!Hey Chubbypanda!Thanks for the seal of approval! At least now I don’t feel crazy for buying back 35 bags of cookies, hehe :)
