This week, I’m obsessed with flax seeds. I made Henry buy me a nice plump bag the other night, even though he was yelling things like, "You don’t even know if you’ll like it! You won’t eat it! Youdon’t even know what it’s supposed to do!"

I know that Britney Spears sprinkles it on her yogurt, and I know that it helps prevent prostate cancer, and I know that it’s chockful of that omega shit, and that’s enough for me.

Turns out I’m now addicted to flax seeds. I throw five leaves of lettuce in a bowl and douse it with flax seeds, stir and enjoy. I love how nutty they taste, nutty like peanuts. Nutty like me-nuts.

Today, I was supervising Henry while he worked like a busy little bee in the kitchen, diligently preparing my dinner. He was sauteeing some sort of rice mixture in a skillet and when I leaned in real close, close enough to burn my face off, I didn’t see any flax seeds. You better believe I pointed this out to Henry.

"You don’t have to put flax seeds on EVERYTHING," he sighed. But he still retrieved the jar that used to hold dumb shit like pretzels but now encases my beloved seeds of flax, and sprinkled not nearly enough of it atop the rice.

I was halfway to work when I realized that I left my dinner at home. And it was vegetarian stuffed peppers! WITH FLAX SEEDS! I only had 43 servings of flax seeds today. How will I get through the night?

  1. I put them on EVERYTHING…

  2. I bought them for Eric because his mom swears by them for lowering cholesterol.

  3. I’m addicted to them too! I love them. And flaxseed oil, with which you can make yummy nutty vinaigrette.

    • Vinaigrettes are my faves so I will have to try that. I have a strawberry chardonay kind at home which Henry almost wouldn’t let me buy because he was all, “YOU WON’T LIKE IT.”

      Well guess what motherfucker* I DID. I DO.

      *Henry, not you!

  4. ew.

  5. I am merely impressed by the thought of Henry sauteeing.

  6. Sharon makes flaxseed muffins with hers. She tried to get me to try it when I was visiting, but I’m some sort of stubborn dumbass and I thought it would be gross. So I didn’t. I’ve missed out?

  7. Sounds delicious, I’ll have to grab some and start sprinkling them on everything. Don’t tell Bill, he’s like a 4 year old when it comes to new foods.
