Disclaimer- The use of the word Frack as a noun, verb, adverb, adjective, participle, dangling participle or
any other type of word is purely a form of self indulgence and flattery. If it offends you- stop reading- I am the one that has it for my surname and quite frankly I LOVE IT! One more thing...This isn't a forum for Battlestar Galactica either- don't tell
me you were sucked in and then disappointed. ALSO- NO directional drilling here.
Here is my back story...I like to buy stuff. Not expensive stuff, like my husband's stuff, but stuff just the same. Cooking products and beauty things and stuff for my kiddos.
Sometimes it rocks- Sometimes not so much.
This blog is all about my stuff. Mrs. Frack's stash...I am going to give you the low down on the products that you may have seen out in stores and let you know if it is a great find- OR NOT!!
Here is my rating system:

Let's get down to it;
Equaline Skin Cleansing Cloths
I like a deal and I like to save money. (My husband just choked on his coffee.) What?? It IS true. Every girl likes a deal- and it doesn't matter what it is. Which brings me to the product at hand. I have
to remove my make up before I use a cleanser to wash my face- you are probably asking isn't that the same thing? Well, yes and no. For a woman who uses minimal make up she can get away with one or the other. For someone like me who piles foundation on like
it's a mask then no, It's not. You need to get rid of all the beauty, foundation creates to get to the skin on your face to clean it. It's a vicious cycle. Ahem, okay now that that is out of the way let me tell you about these cleansing cloths. I used
to buy the name brand version of these- It rhymes with "Tonds" for DOUBLE THE PRICE and you know what I like these BETTER!!! I buy the 30 pack of towelettes and the price is about $3.50. You can fine the Equaline brand at SUPERVALU supermarkets- ACME, Albertsons,
Farm Fresh and Jewel-Osco to name a few. These lovely little make up removers take off my foundation and eye make-up. Most days one takes care of it all- some days I have to use two, yes those days are not good. The texture of the cloth is thick and plush
and the scent is fantastic. It smells soft and fresh with a note of Baie Rose. MMMMM- I love it. It tees you up for bed. That smell is so relaxing. So there you have it. Step #1 of my 5 step nightly ritual. I will eventually get to the others. Oh, and
check this out- I am not the only one who loves this product; click here
http://www.beautynscience.net/2010_12_01_archive.html< for another good review (she apparently, gets better prices than I DO but alas, I am happy paying $3.50 for mine.) (PS- this picture
is not great it was the only one I could find on the internet; equaline apparently doesn't need to market it's product; and I am too lazy to take my own picture.)
Trader Joe's Garlic Naan
Okay, if you don't live near a Trader Joe's I will apologize in advance. That grocery chain has amazing products. Some of which are my all time favorite things to eat. If you haven't had Naan imagine a foccacia
bread, pita and a tortilla- meshed together and then GRILLED. What you'd get would be a rounded triangular airy, crispy yet hearty bread. SO darn good. It's an Indian delight! TJ's has two versions of their Naan- Tandoori (think plain-ish) and Garlic.
Garlic is our favorite. This bread has hunks of garlic and pieces of coriander leaves. We actually serve this some nights with spaghetti- somehow it's a good match. You can find these in the frozen food section of TJ's. Listen to these ingredients: WHEAT
FLOUR, WATER, GARLIC, MILK, YOGURT, CORIANDER LEAVES, SUNFLOWER OIL, AND SALT. Isn't that a beautiful thing? I can actually pronounce the ingredients. And the best part? Well there are two best parts: 1- they cook SO fast only 2 minutes in a 400 degree
oven. 2- a bag of 4 Naan are under 2 bucks! The bread is made in India- it's authentic. We like to make pizza with them. Truly can't go wrong with these babies. It's a FrackFamily5 staple. (Again, not the best picture in the world but Mrs. Lazy Pants
can't be choosy.)
