Twinkie Strawberry Delight

 Twinkie Strawberry Delight

My daughter got her wisdom teeth taken out today.  We got off to a rough start with her not feeling well when the anesthetic wore off but as the day has progressed, it’s gotten better.  One lesson we are learning is that her cheeks really hurt.  And when your cheeks hurt, you shouldn’t smile or laugh or they will hurt worse. 

So I guess we really shouldn’t be watching The Big Bang Theory should we? I mean we’ve seen almost every episode at least twice but it’s addicting and once you start you can’t stop, because it’s just one of those feel good shows.  Sheldon just grabs your heart in that silly bazinga way.

Another thing that will make you feel good is this Twinkie Strawberry Delight.  It takes very little time, messes up very few dishes, and tastes so darn good! Now that makes me feel good and the Twinkie is making the sweetest come back ever!  Love that marketing slogan!
