SPC - Food and Me 3

This month's theme at Self Portrait Challenge is "Food and Me". For this week's photo I have decided to highlight one of my current snack obsessions - the humble saltine cracker. I mostly like to eat them just as they are. I like them with peanut butter, cheese or a little butter sometimes, but most of the time I just eat them plain. The reason that I say they are a "current" snack obsession is because eventually I will get tired of them and I may not eat one for a year or more. So it goes with other snacks, like pretzels or popcorn. I probably should try to cut back since they are mostly just carbs.

If you want to know more about saltine crackers, you can read about them here. I like that it says that they offer "little to no[thing] in the way of nutrition"! Damn skippy.

I look forward to your spc contributions every week because you have such a wry sense of humor & I love it :)

Hey, have you tried the whole grain saltine? I wonder if they have more nutritional value (which is not hard to achieve, apparently).

Love this photo! The napkin is a nice touch :) I always lick the salt off saltines first. It's the best part. They are really good with preserves too. How can something so simple and basic be so good?!

I love saltines spread with a little butter. I hardly ever eat them (and when I do it's mostly at a restaurant rather than at home) but I love them.

Very cool photo, JC!

Poppy loves saltines too - so does Faith. If you come visit I will take you to this local restaurant that makes their own saltines and brick-oven roasts them. I got shrimp cocktail and they served them on the side. The waiter was all up in a puff because I was going to toss them and he gave me the spiel about how they were handmade and hand roasted - so I ate one... and OMG - they were AWESOME!!!!! AND I HATE THAT WORD!!!!!!

I should go try to buy some and ship them to you before your kick is over. This was one of my favorite pics too.. darn that Jeremy for snagging it first.

yes, the saltines...how they rule with their salty fist of anti-nourishment goodness. I buy boxes from Sam's because the worst feeling in the world is to be out of them.
