The Lenten season is upon us. This year I decided to give up CANDY for Lent. This is a BIG sacrifice for me - especially chocolate. Chocolate is a dear, dear friend. Always comforting.
I have two people in my life to thank for my sweet tooth. First, my dad who says, 'There's always room for dessert!' - and my mother always served dessert with dinner - every night without fail! Second, my Uncle Joe who lived with us for a time when I was a child. Seemed like every day he brought home a bag a penny candy for me!
|So long, Hershey kisses - you sweet little nibbles.|
|So long, See's chocolates and Chukar Cherries|
|So long, candied apples (wait, do you count as candy?) ...|
(Yes, I do have an open box of Mallo Cups in my pantry.)
So long, licorice - my strawberry friend
So long, Fran's Salted Caramels
My scrumptious buttery delights.
So long dear friends ... I'll see you in 40 days!
