How fun!! I love a challenge. I hope that I get at least one of these right. Ok, here are my guesses.

#1 - May be Thousand Island Salad Dressing
#2 - Either boxed mac n' cheese or hamburger helper
#3 - Either chewy granola bars or energy bars
#4 - May be vegetable soup

I can't wait to see if I'm right!! Thanks for the fun game. So good to hear that his CD's are doing well. I never doubted that they wouldn't.

salad dressing?
mac & cheese?

Great idea to get us thinking!

Tipper said...

I don't have a clue! I will guess at the last one-Vegtable Beef Soup?

Thank you for putting me in your sidebar-I'll return the favor and add you to mine!

Randell said...

Haaha - great idea!

Wow David!!! So fun - for so long he has been on this journey . . . finally it is paying off! Yippeee!

I don't have shelves right now and I don't eat hydro foods or wheat - gosh these are hard!!!!

Everyone else had good guesses. I have to agree with Tipper - that was the only thing that came to mind was some sort of soup.

Thanks for the fun!

I would guess number 1 is either ketchup or Thousand Island salad dressing.

Lovely blog by the way. Where can I find a photo of your daughter's quilt??

Em said...

OK - fun! I HATE High Fructose Corn Syrup! We have cut it out of our diet altogether... so I read a lot of labels nowadays! People look at me sideways in the grocery store... Anyway...

OK... 1. Thousand Island Dressing
2. Hamburger Helper
3. Granola bar (not Nature Valley brand)
4. Campbells vegetable soup

jennifer said...

Great questions! I would guess 1) is ketchup or some kind of dressing; 2) hamburger helper; 3) oatmeal cookie or granola bar; 4) vegetable chicken noodle soup.

Go David!
