When Chocolate Covered Almonds Attack….
Ok…. what is it with me and candy in the house? You would think it would not be an issue. I am a grown woman. I should be able to have better control.
I recently bought some chocolate covered almonds for Al (DON’T LAUGH! They really were for him!). Al doesn’t ask for much and I wanted to treat him since he is working so hard with our business putting in long hours and our time together this time of year is short….
ANYWAY – I bought the good stuff…. the kind you scoop yourselves, put them in a pretty jar and he enjoyed them while we played cribbage one evening. However Al – can eat a few and be satisfied.
So last night I am up WAY TOO LONG reading after midnight when I should have just went to bed…. I looked over at the jar and swear they were chanting my name. (Yes, in little almond voices I hear, “Sheila! Sheila!”…)
I decided to have a few, I mean after all, almonds are good for you right? I think I read somewhere that chocolate is too…. next thing I know… I have eaten most of them and the ones remaining I am trying to reposition in the jar so it doesn’t look like I just had my own personal almond fest.
I am pretty sure they started it.
