No Bunny Loves Me

Not the Easter Bunny
Not the Cadbury Bunny
Not the Russell Stover Bunny
Not a Hershey Bunny
Not a Dove Bunny
Not even a stinkin' Palmer Bunny . . .

So, there is no reason for me to give any part of my life over to a chocolate bunny. I write this because I have been having thoughts of the sensation of milk chocolate just at the point of melting: how it looks, tastes, feels. It is a reminder to myself that I am having these thoughts because milk chocolate is being showcased right now in this last push for consumers to buy their Easter sugar at just about every store on the planet. 

While I am at it, let me say that The Eggs-that-cannot-be-named are also not part of my life today. 

"Eggs however, are a staple in your diet," says my daughter Rory. "Yes," I replied, "but only ones that are not wrapped in foil. My eggs come from live chickens."  

For this, today, I am grateful. 

What food does not love you?

top of my list - rye toast

series loop cycle with root beer floats, serious loops

anything fried with horseradish.

the first two I have to just steer clear while making a hex sign and running the other way. Can't even be in the house with them or at the same table in restaurant.

horseradish is wonderful to me with steamed veggies. So that one I was able to substitute. I was also able to substitute dry stir fried zucchini/onions/mushrooms for noodles in Italian dishes.

Trail mix is my nemesis. So "healthy" yet I can eat 10,000 calories worth and still want more. Evil, evil trail mix. There's a reason it's called trail mix... I better be on a 20 mile hike if I'm going start munching on it.

This time of year is so much more difficult for me than Halloween or Christmas. I am a Russell Stover chocolate/marshmallow/caramel egg addict. I even have to stay out of Walgreens so that I don't come into contact with the "Big Bite" egg. I'll be glad when it's all over.

We are having a Easter Egg hunt at our house on Sunday for the grandkids. I have to fill the plastic eggs, but I bought things I don't like, such as jelly beans and malted milk eggs. But the yard will literally be a minefield.

There was a time when I did not go through the checkout line without buying two candy bars. I loved Snickers with almonds and Hershey's milk chocolate. I would immediately eat the Snickers as soon as I got into my car and I would finish the other one on the way home. Nobody was wiser except my hips kept expanding. Funny how that happens. :(

Ice cream is my nemesis. I still allow myself to have a very small amount of ice cream as a treat every once in a while, but I cannot buy it and keep it in the house. If I did, I would eat the whole thing!

I thought it was Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, which I have not had in ages, but I weakened a couple of weeks ago and bought one. Took one bite and threw the rest out. So sugary sweet that it was nauseating. I guess I'm cured,

So Funny! I love you can joke and be serious at the same time.

I knew Vickie was going to say Rye Bread! The floats threw me.

I love/hate: Bread. Garlic Bread. Bread is my gateway drug. My downward spiral.

Ice cream.... it's my nemesis!
