Gold Spot coasters

I'm gonna say it - my grandma is a hoarder. She keeps everything. When we went on our India trip earlier this year I found these coasters in the kitchen. Funny, I never remember seeing these before. I thought it was pretty hilarious she kept these. At the same time, I was glad she did because they bring back so many memories of some of the earliest Gold Spot marketing campaigns.

For those of you who haven't been to India, Gold Spot is an orange flavored soft drink similar to Crush or Fanta. It's really fizzy and extremely carbonated compared to the soft drinks you find here. They stopped manufacturing it and selling it awhile back so it's now become a novelty of sorts.

What are some of your hidden kitchen treasures?

working lunch

I work everyday just like many of you. The daily grind is both exhilirating and annoying. Exhilirating because I enjoy what I do and love my boss. At the same time a little annoying because I have to go in instead of being able to work from home. Also annoying because I'm so not into fast food and prefer something from home. Usually it's leftovers, but this morning it was a toasted almond butter and honey sandwich on 7-grain bread, a red delicious apple and some craisins and apricots. I was able to pack my lunch while making my morning chai.

What's in your lunch bag?
