Happy Birthday to Me!

Some of my favorite treats come nestled in a paper cup lined in a pretty box.

However, some of the nastiest flavors also come disguised as these yummy treats. Forrest Gump's momma was right, "Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get." You never know if you will get the good chocolate or the nasty chocolate. For this reason I am a big fan of the insert thingy that sometimes come with chocolates to let you know what you will be enjoying and which ones to avoid.

The best solution to this problem is just create your own custom box at the candy store.

The next best thing is to go to Costco and buy the Milk Chocolate Caramel Macadamia Clusters. Every one of those clusters is yummy.

Better yet, have your husband surprise you on your birthday with a fancy chocolate box filled with those Caramel Macadamia Clusters from Costco. And as an extra touch have him make you an insert thingy so you know what you are enjoying and which ones to avoid. (by the way...none of them were avoided)

Thank you Mr. Wright for a fun and yummy birthday surprise!

Everything Edible

Chocolate shell, edible grass and chocolate covered oreos. It turned out pretty cute. :)

**taste bud disclaimer
The edible green apple grass is just awful! YUCK!

Exactly Equal

Easter brings with it many memories of coloring hard boiled eggs, the smell of vinegar, potato salad, Easter Egg hunts, deviled eggs, new dresses, The Atonement, Spring weather, plastic eggs filled with candy, a new beginning of sorts, spiced jelly beans...yum, flowers, hidden baskets, stuffed animals and personalized decorated chocolate eggs.

Back in the day the Easter Bunny (or should I say Mrs Easter Bunny) went to great lengths to make sure all of the Jackson kids had the same amount of candy. Exactly equal. I even suspect that she not only counted out each type of candy but also divided them out by color.

This information may help explain why I sort and eat M&M's and jelly beans by color. :)

But most importantly Easter is a celebration of the Resurrection of Christ and the gift He gave to each of us equally...exactly equal.
