Where's Willoughby? And A New Feature

Can you find me? I'm wearing a yellow jacket with a red "W" on the back. If you click on the image, you should get a larger view (aaargh! not working, I'm working on it, I'm just not great with HTML).

I've been absent for about a week now, but I haven't actually been hanging out with Waldo. In reality, I've just been busy with some yard work. I hope you didn't miss me too much while I was gone. Wait, no, I take that back. I hope you were checking your computer every ten minutes around the clock for the past week, just waiting for my latest post!

Now that I'm back, I want to start a new feature on my blog. Martha Stewart has her "Good Things" so I'm going to have "Willoughby's Wonderful Things" where I can share some products or ideas that I think are worth mentioning. I'm not sure if I'm going to make it a weekly thing or just surprise you with it from time to time.

To kick off this new feature, I have two wonderful food products to recommend. They are both fairly new to the Willoughby household, but neither is new on the market, as far as I know.

The first is Multi-grain Sandwich Thins from Arnold Select. These things are amazing and make deli quality sandwiches. They're thin and soft and delicious. You can use them as you would bread or buns. At 100 calories with 5 grams of fiber, they're pretty healthy, too. Our local supermarket carries them, but we buy the larger 16 count pack at Sam's Club.
The next item is T. Marzetti Ultimate Blue Cheese Dressing. You can find this in the refrigerated section or produce section of the supermarket. If you like blue cheese salad dressing, you know how much the taste can differ from one brand to the next. So much so, in fact, that my husband never thought that he liked it until he tried this one. It has a smooth blue cheese flavor, with just enough bite. Great on salads, but also delicious on sandwiches.

What do you think of the new feature? If you have any comments about it or products/ideas to share with me, please leave them in my comment section!

Our family LOVES the Arnold Thins too! ... and we get them at Sam's Club too. We put one side inthe freezer and take it out when we need it... which is usually soon with a family of 5! : )
I like the new feature!

Hi - was missing your blogs.
First, I loved Waldo. It was particularly fun after a margarita or two.
Secondly, your "finds" are good. I like that bread for all the reasons you stated.
Have a great wknd!

I haven't seen that bread in my neck of the woods yet but I'll be sure to keep an eye out! Love blue cheese, love that dressing. Good feature!

Welcome Back! I was gone too...working for a change, which is nice.

Arnold Bakery was right near my school and I loved the days they baked the raisin bread. YUM! All their products are first class, I'll have to try these.

Sorry, everyone, I just can't seem to get the picture to enlarge!

I'm glad you all seem to like the "Wonderful" feature. I like to hear about other people's great finds so I thought it would be fun to share a few of my own.
