I was so excited to share this post on Tuesday but our Internet went down. So, as usual, a day late...
Remember a few weeks ago when I posted my concerns for the stability of the universe, upon waking up chubby (that's putting it nicely) and pimply one morning. Remember that I was chubby and pimply in high school so the cosmos' need for balance dictates that my middle years should be slender, perky and lovely skinned. Uhhh?
Then I read The Misplaced Americans blog and realized I had won a prize. Yea for me! And Whew, for the universe!
My prize package of Brazilian lovin' arrived in the cutest floral box, filled with that Brazilian butt I've always wanted. I also got a lovely Brazilian beach and a tan, a Latin love..... wait, that package might have unbalanced the darn universe again.
What I got was way better, check it out.
That's some fine Brazilian love. Candy, yum! Flip flops, which I wore even though there was 10 inches of snow. Mango drink mix, Sunday when it warmed up a bit I mixed it up, poured it over ice and headed out to the sand box for a few minutes of Brazilian Beach fantasy. Luscious hair conditioner, which I'll be trying this weekend. And, last but definitely not least, a cheese roll mix, which I grudgingly shared with the boys and Adorable Hubby.
The Cheese Rolls were so delish that I just had to find a recipe and try them myself. Ahh, thanks Brecca(that's my vote for your new name), you made all my Brazilian lovin' fantasies come true plus, balanced the universe. You're my hero! Oh, and welcome back to the USA.
Here's a recipe for Brazilian Cheese Rolls so you can cook up your own Brazilian love Fest.
