A to Z Monday ~ Food Fun With the Letters M & N

Manicotti. Cheese Manicotti. One of my favorite Italian dishes. There’s a place in Phoenix called Stumpy’s and they make the very best Cheese Manicotti. Oh yum, now I do miss a few things about Phoenix! I’m gonna use a “file photo” for this one.
And, M is also for Moon Stones Candy. I bought 3 jars of these silly things because I LIKE THE JARS they come in!! I think they are the perfect size for storing other small, dry foods. So, I figured they were on sale from $3.99 each down to $1.99 each so I couldn’t buy jars like that for so cheap. Anybody else ever do weird stuff like this??
Now for the letter N, I was about out of ideas, when I attended our local Earth Day/Arbor Day celebration on Saturday. My choice for the letter N is Natural! Natural everything, but in this case, Natural Brew Coffee Filters. And, that’s all I have to say about the letter N. :<) For more A to Z Monday foodies, go visit Jen’s sidebar. Hope you all have a good week. I’m guessing ours should go a bit better than the previous two!

love, Cassie

That manicotti looks really good!
What do Moon Stones taste like? Only moon stone I've ever seen is in the Smithsonian ;)
Go natural!

I have to agree - that manicotti looks absolutely delish!

And it's all about the packaging - sometimes I buy things just for the beautiful cobalt blue bottle it comes in!! LOL!

Have a fantastic day.

Manicotti? YUMMY!!!
I also like those jars, but no, I have not done anything silly like that. Yet.
I heart natural as well!

Happy Monday Cassie
Too bad we didn't go Phoenix since you give all this info on restaurants in the area.

That manicotti looks good; we stuff ours with king crab.

I notice that, even though you bought them only for the bottles, half those Moon Stones have disappeared.

Hopefully those Natural Brew, no bleach filters are being used on real coffee and not that decaf stuff--which is hardly "natural" at all.

Ooooh, that manicotti looks yummy! I never heard of moon stones candy before. They do come in pretty cool bottles.

Happy Monday, Cassie! :D

Ben said...

I agreee with the Rev. and Daisy above (and just about everyone else) - I could eat way too much of that manicotti right now!

Grandma J said...

Here I am, late to the comment section. I love manicotti and I would love to find those jars too. I'd have to eat the moon stones because it's a sin to waste good candy!

Yes, I have. bought wine for the bottle and poured out the wine.....
