Marmite, From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Marmite is a British savoury spread made from yeast extract, a by-product of the beer brewing process. It is a sticky, dark brown paste with a distinctive, powerful taste that polarises consumer opinion and prompts its advertising slogan that you either "love it or hate it". It is similar to Australia and New Zealand's Vegemite and is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

Umm...where has this been all of my life? In England, I suppose. My English friend Louise has talked of Marmite the way we talk of peanut everyday sandwich spread. At a playdate on Tuesday, she fixed me a sandwich-butter on bread with a very thin layer of the Marmite. STRONG and salty - almost like cavier - but really yummy. It is very healthy and low in everything bad for other words, perfect for a snack. I am excited - I love to find new, healthy foods! Thank you, Louise!!

In kiddo news, things are going smoothly here. Mae actually got a morning nap today (usually she has to make do with a cat nap in the car) and was quite cheerful while waiting at the dentist's office. We went to DQ this afternoon (too much lightening for the pool) and she got VERY mad when I wouldn't let her eat my ENTIRE cone. Geesh! She is so funny and opinionated. Tomorrow Caitlan and Angelina are coming over for a playdate here at our house. It was 98 degrees today. Ugh!
