gDiapers: A Review

Have I mentioned before that I’m a big fan of cloth diapering? Because I am. There are tons, TONS I say, of cloth diapering options out there. But I like to keep it simple. 1 brand.

gDiapers Little gPants

“Earth friendly diapers,” they say.

I’m not going to pro and con you with the cloth diaper debate here. I just want to tell you about gDiapers.

But first. Look. at. those. rolls.

Hey, what you lookin’ at?

The gDiaper is pretty simple. There are 3 parts.

  • Cute cloth outside
  • Snap-in plastic liner (this is what keeps the liquid on the inside of the diaper and not on you)
  • Insert to hold all that liquid.

You can buy their flushableor reusable clothinserts to go with. I just use regular old-fashioned cloth diapers on the inside. You know, the kind that your mother used to pin on you. Only I don’t use a pin. I just fold the diaper into a rectangle, lay it in the liner (which I’ve already snapped onto the cover) and velcro the whole thing onto the baby.  It’s so easy, even my husband can do it. Hardee har har. Hi honey.

Seriously, it’s that easy. When I take the diapers out of the dryer, I immediately build diapers. Snap liner to cover, stuff diaper in liner. Done. Next. Then when it’s diaper changin’ time, I have plenty of diapers all ready to go. It’s just as easy as putting on a disposable at that point.

Washing the gDiapers is easy, too. It all goes in the washer (fold those velcro tabs over though, or you’ll have a huge chain of diapers stuck together) with my homemade laundry soap. Then hang dry the plastic liners and machine dry the rest. Oh, and the liners hang dry in about 10 minutes, I kid you not.

So what’s not to love? Not much, really. To be honest, we did have a small velcro issue with one of the dipes that we bought off eBay, but they are sending us replacement velcro and were very nice to work with.

If you’re interested in seeing more gDiapers, click the picture below. And no, they are not paying me to say any of this. That would be nice though. Maybe I should look into that.

A Quick Restaurant Review

I don’t know if I would call this a restaurant review so much as a “I had 1 entree that I’m absolutely in love with” review. But I did, and I need to tell you about it.

The place: Panchos Place in Spring Hill, TN

The entree: Lunch Fajitas

The verdict: Is it bad to eat the same thing for lunch everyday? Because I want to.

These fajitas are so good, I don’t even know where to begin. Let’s start with the price: $7.05. A little on the high side for a lunch item. But now let’s talk about the portion size: Gigantic. Dave and I split it and still took some home. And we didn’t go in with small appetites.

So for around $10 (including tax and tip), we got a huge sizzling platter of fajita filling, 6 tortillas, a dinner size plate of refried beans, rice, pico de gallo, and guacamole. Not to mention the endless chips and salsa on the table. And the chips were h-o-t and fresh. The fajitas were delicious.

So there you have it. The best feeds 2 people and only costs $10 lunch in the world. No, I didn’t get a picture. But I will tomorrow.

Ain’t nothing wrong with that.

Have you tried this?  It is soooooo good. Trust me, I never exaggerate.

Gotta give the shout out to Panera on this one; it is that good. Tastes like cheesecake. And any time you can get away with eating cheesecake for breakfast, I call that a good day.

And it’s reduced fat too, so it’s practically a health food!

I had it on a whole wheat English muffin because I’m just healthy like that.  Now I’m out of English muffins though, so I may just be eating it with a spoon tomorrow.
