I am not a big dessert eater.
I love a piece of cake, or pie like the next person,
but I don't keep it around the house.
I don't eat dessert on a daily basis.
But this Christmas my St. Louis kids
gave me a little box of chocolates.
They're not big candy eaters either,
but were just celebrating the joy of giving goodies.
Who would know what lurked inside
this plain brown box.
4 chocolate truffles,
(with sea salt)
that were as delicious as anything I'd ever tasted.
I have a lot of willpower in some things.
Candy is one of them.
Once I opened this little jewel I made the decision
that I couldn't overdo it.
Two bites a day.
But now they are gone,
And like a friend who has moved.
I miss them.
Good thing there isn't one of these close by.
What kind of candy is YOUR favorite?
And do you indulge,
or ration it?
Goodbye, "sweet" friend.
